fnord on HD Photo and OpenEXR

fnord software has a new blog, where Brendan Bolles recently announced that ProEXR has shipped. Included with the download of ProEXR is a collection of 4 free open source plug-ins that provide access to OpenEXR files in AE.

Brendan also posts interesting comments in
HD Photo: Not Too Shabby:

"You know that we here at fnord have a thing for file formats. Don't ask why, we just do. Well, there's a new format coming down the pipe, and it's HD Photo. It looks like the format to rule them all, so of course it must come from Microsoft. And that's why it pains me to say this: HD Photo actually looks really great..."
