Bogart 6.1 for the S-series, Topaz, and Karat is available from your dealer now too. If you do not have a dealer, here is the list: http://www.macrosystem.us/Dealer_List.php For Cassie Cultists upgrading from Bogart 5 it is only $69, or $249 from version 4 or earlier. Add $10 for discs, Bogart 6 manual addendum, release notes, install instructions, and shipping USPS Priority ($7 for 1st Class) ($20 Canada). Probably best to get it shipped, because the downloads are well over 2 GB and would take most forever. But here are all the links for those with high speed internet, and ISO file disc burning software and skills:
The manual above lists the main new features of Bogart 6.1, but it leaves out a few other important features. Probably the biggest is compatibility with the new HD Backup Sentry, which is a paid upgrade currently released in Europe, and about ready to emerge from Beta Testing in the US. This allows single project backups, and transfers between other Casablancas with the same software. You can even select parts of project. It saves and restores everything just like it was. Storyboard, Clip Bin, Transitions, Test, Inserts, Audio; in other words everything. Bogart 6.1 Gold also includes an improved A/V data backup, restore, and transfer if you do not want to spend the money for Sentry. But the A/V data does not save inserts, transitions, etc.
Also the manual does not include these very important items: PCM Audio support, and many new video formats, including Sonys XAVC. I highly recommend the upgrade, particularly since it is so inexpensive for Bogart 5 users. If you don't have Bogart 5, Bogart 6 includes all of those numerous capabilities too!
Bogart 6.1 requires Arabesk 6.3e to work properly. If you already purchased Arabesk 6 you have the license code, but make sure you load Arabesk 6.3e from the new add-on SW disc. If you don't have Arabesk 6, with the 25% add-on SW Sale it is $75 (if coming from version 5). From earlier versions of Arabesk it is $119 during the sale.
If you are not using Arabesk 6 you are really missing the boat. With all previous versions of Arabesk, you could only work on one Arabesk project at a time. Arabesk 6 gives you 10 projects, and many other cool new features: http://macrosystem.us/Arabesk_6.php
