FK: Last question and it regards your last poke at old-school applications: If I'm going to pay $199 for one project, why wouldn't I just go out and buy the software myself?

NB: Another good question. If what you want is a static tool, then I say go buy the traditional, old-school application. Go buy it. Go spend the time and money taking classes to learn it, and go create your works from scratch. If however what you want is an easier to use system. One that gets you up and running quickly, plugs you into and empowers you with the design capabilities of other artists and will evolve into a much more powerful and sophisticated system with each and every day that goes by, then you should give :Fx a spin. Keep in mind that what you experience today is version 1.0 of :Fx. We're barely 2 months out of the chute. We're not at version 5.0 yet. We haven't had 3 years to get it right. But, we evolve quickly. We evolve very quickly and what you see those offline applications doing today, we will be able to do, and much more in due time. It's only a matter of time - and not a lot of time at that.

FK: Neil Balthaser, CEO of Balthaser Online, thank you for this interesting and insightful interview. Neil, we wish you all the best.

NB: Thank you very much. I enjoyed the hot seat.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
