Boinx Software has released Fotomagico 4.4, which the company calls "a major update" to its $99.99 slide show creation tool. The update focuses on "the underlying sytems" to improve the user experience with smoother transitions, better color accuracy and faster exports.

"This update to FotoMagico is not about fancy new features; it's about improving the platform and preparing for the future," states Oliver Breidenbach, Boinx Software CEO.

The Mavericks-compatible update moves the slide show movie format from QuickTime to Apple ProRes with an automatic update option when you open old presentations in the new Fotomagico. It also move to a 64-bit architecture.

We detailed our Fotomagico 4 experience last month in Fotomagicto To The Rescue. We've been working with the new version for a few days as well.
