Is Magnetosphere Now an iTunes 8 Visualizer? [Updated]

A number of individuals are speculating that Flight 404's Magnetosphere iTunes visualizer is likely to be "trippy" iTunes 8 visualizer described by Kevin Rose.

Magnetosphere had been available as a free download from the developer's site until a few months ago. The author has since responded to an inquiry by Allan White that the plug-in had been "sold to a third party".

Other example videos of the developer's impressive visual work:

- Magnetosphere (High quality QuickTime version).

- Magnetosphere Revisited
- Turbulence w/ flares
- Magnetic Sphere

Update: Kevin Rose confirms that the Magnetosphere is the "visualization [he] saw in a build of iTunes 8.0".
