Corel buys Painter, KPT and Bryce 3D
These packages increase the total number of packages that Corel makes available for Mac (remember the recent acquisition of Ultimatte's powerful KnockOut 1.1 masking application). Corel has not only secured some of the most important MetaCreation applications but has well thought to "grab" some of the most brilliant minds of the California software house: Mark Zimmer, Tom Hedges and John Derry (the creators of Painter) and some engineers able to ensure the future developments of Painter, KPT and Bryce.MetaCreations will continue to provide support to its users until May 19, 2000. Starting May 20, in fact, the technical support of the packages mentioned above will pass to Corel.
