Some people think the same "artifacts and strange colour mapping" looks bad. I guess it has a certain look and feel to it like programmers deliberately adding CRT like distortion, scan lines and old film effects to gfx and videos. I guess this is alright but I'm drawing the line and have to say no to anyone wanting to bring back an interlaced flicker effect .

PAL OSCAN_MAX=724x566 and OSCAN_VIDEO=736x566. ECS supports higher resolutions but most can't do HAM6. AGA hardware should be able to do HAM6 or HAM8 at higher resolutions.

ADPro was good at batch conversions but may not understand all the newer picture formats. SView5 on Aminet may be able to handle it as well as some other gfx software with ARexx ports.

There is the following recent link on this forum about HAM video using HAM frames also.
