Well Frankr has been busy again! BETA_24 is now an official Ver 24 release. We will open BETA 25 for the next pile of work.

Official version 3.0.24 Summary: fade in, fade out,circle effect, anti aliasing fixed on text, can protect cells in sequence to not overwrite when you press the "Create Random Effects" button,
cross fade slider next to the Layers. Now you can slide Effect 1 into Effect2. Very helpful if you are cross fading movies.

3.0.24: Aug 4,2013 - Enhancement: (frankr) New fade in and fade out boxes on every effect. Enter the number of seconds to either fade in/out.
                              - Enhancement: (sean) Started development of Piano Keyboard. This is not complete. Will eventually use an input file from
                           Audacity that will identify the polyphonic notes in a song.
               - Enhancement: (matt) Many changes to text. Ghosting is now fixed. You no longer have to use the temporary fix of using
                     "1 is unmask, 2 is color wash". Text now has 45 degrees rotation. Countdown timer can show seconds counting down or
                     it can show "xx d yy h zz m aa s" display. countdown text is now centered correctly.
               - Enhancement: (frankr) New effect for circles. Circles can bounce, collide. Choose radial to make a new effect
