Imposter Software announces the release of Imposter 1.0 for Macintosh CU-SeeMe

Imposter 1.0 is the first virtual personality development environment for
Macintosh CU-SeeMe.

Imposter 1.0 consists of a software-only Quicktime VDIG digitizing
component and a slide sorter application that allows you to import and
sequence pictures to be transmitted by CU-SeeMe just as if they were coming
from a video camera. The software can quickly import pictures directly
from the Macintosh Scrapbook or copy and paste any picture from other
Macintosh applications, even from CU-SeeMe itself.

Up to 128 pictures can be included in a picture set. Simply click on a
picture in the slide sorter and the selected picture gets transmitted by
CU-SeeMe. Picture sets can be saved and loaded from disk.

The most powerful feature of Imposter 1.0 is the image sequencer, where
groups of pictures can be selected and played back at a programmable rate
creating a true illusion of reality. Imposter 1.0 supports foward and
reverse play of sequences of up to 128 pictures.

Tired of being denied access to reflectors because you don't have a camera?
Imposter 1.0 turns any Macintosh into a transmitter!

Imposter will run on any Macintosh or Power Macintosh computer running
System 7.5 or later. 16 MB of RAM is recommended. No video digitizing
hardware is required. Both the Cornell and White Pine versions of CU-SeeMe
are supported. Imposter supports both color and grayscale image import and

A fully functional demonstration version of Imposter 1.0 is available that
is limited to 16 pictures. The demo version has the load and save functions
disabled, but supports copy and paste from other Mac applications. Also,
the demonstration version puts an Imposter logo watermark on the displayed

The full version of Imposter 1.0 will be available in October for $34.95.
