March 7, 2012 – DxO Labs announces the immediate availability of DxO FilmPack v3.2 for Mac and Windows.
Thanks to DxO Labs’ advanced calibration technologies, DxO FilmPack brings all the emotion and creativity of silver halide photography to your digital images.

With 25 additional renderings and numerous processing tools available, DxO FilmPack offers users a palette of infinite creativity.
INCREASED POWER AND SPEED
The software algorithms have been adapted to run in 64 bits. DxO FilmPack is now able to process very large files of up to 200 megapixels.
Further, this new version has been optimized, particularly with respect to managing memory. The software starts up almost instantaneously, and image processing is up to two times faster than in version 3.1.

In addition, users can now use arrow keys as well as improved scroll wheel action for more intuitive navigation within the renditions library
