Just uploaded a bunch of miscellaneous Toaster / Flyer related stuff to my directory (pgovotsos) in the uploads directory of the ftp server. Some is directly related, some more software useful outside the Toaster / Flyer. As I dig up more I'll be adding.

Some of the software I'm not sure if they are OK to upload. If not, let me know and I'll delete them.


Club Toaster 1 - 16

Documentation:
Samplitude MS 3.0
Samplitude Pro II
Samplitude disks coming

Multimedia Resources:
520 Photoreal Seamless Textures
3,000 JPEG Textures
Creative Impulse Volume 2 by ProDAD (resources for MovieShop)
Multimedia Backdrops
Nexus Pro Multimedia Reference Library
The Creative Magic of Ron Thornton - Digital FX
World of Sound

Software:
Art Effect Plugins Collection
Art Effect 4
Audio Thunder
Fantastic Dreams with serial number txt
iFusion 3.0
ImageFX 4.5 Studio
Millennium (3 CD)
Scary FX by DiscreetFX (Effects for Toaster / Flyer) with serial number txt
VideoGems by MegageM VideoGems page
Wildfire and MovieShop Operators (3 versions)

Videos:
Light Speed Video Magazine Volume 1 DVD (3.2 GB iso)
Rest coming

Enjoy!

I'm going through a lot of stuff and trying to get as much of it uploaded as I can. I'm in the process of digitizing a few dozen videos and will be uploading them along with more software and resources. Some more documentation as well.

BTW for whatever reason, the Club Toaster CDs don't read / burn very well with ImgBurn. It doesn't seem to like the ones that have audio and data (the ones with .bin extension). I used AnyBurn to image all of the CDs above then burned them to verify. It ran quickly, without any hiccups, and is free and easy to use. You can get it at http://www.anyburn.com

The Thornton CD is meant to accompany a videotape by the same name. It's in the queue to be digitized. Sometime next week I should have a couple dozen additional videotapes uploaded.

Does anyone know if there is a limit to how much you can upload? So far I've got 120GB ready and will be soon approaching twice that.

I just spoke with him and there isn't that much space left on the system. So I will probably just be uploading some more documentation and software and save the videos until more storage is available.

If there are one or two particular videos I can upload them. Sometime in the next few days I'll post a list of the videos I've digitized so far for some feedback.

just great

#1) by any chance, do you have the FlyFX software with the updated version:
FLY FX (8 floppies) [update: flyfx13.lha] ?
archive.org did not save the update - so for now we have nothing at all :/

Even better I have the CD version as well as several floppy versions. Unreleased versions of much of the software. When I to a place with faster internet (stuck on DSL here) and more storage here, I have a bunch of software and videos to upload. I have pretty much every piece software and hardware that is Toaster / Flyer related and audio and video in general. So far more than 200GB. Definitely not going to try and upload on a 1 Mbit upload DSL

Doing this is something I've been planning to do for years but never found the time. Since I retired a few years back, finding time is less of a challenge I have, I think, every productivity program and utility released and I want to work my way through adding all of it here along with the documentation for it. Just gonna take a bit of time

Loving this thread even if it is about Lightwave plugins. I just about have my Toaster/Flyer A4000T configuration completed (need to install my (3) SSD drives on the Flyer) and all the additional Toaster/Flyer add-ons are extremely desired

I need to start updating my Lightwave 3d install with all the additional plugins as well....just haven't bothered using Lightwave on my 68040/40Mhz as it's so much faster on my Amithlon (or WinUAE) setup......plus trying to learn the new surfacing and lighting changes in Lightwave 2018 on my PC is eating up a large part of my free time.

This is a blanket statement of some of what the various files I'm uploading will comprise, why I've done things the way I have, and some ideas of what you can do with them. The idea is to lump everything into this one post and just link to it in the updates rather than repeat it every time. I'll edit as needed for clarification since I'm sure that I won't get it right the first time

In general the videos digitized well, surprisingly well for some that are over 25 years old. There is occasionally some video artifacting but very little overall. The audio in some parts has some hissing and crackling but I don't know if that's due to the passage of time or the original source material. Of course, since these are VHS tapes, fine detail like text isn't always crystal clear. I had meant for many years to have digitized them long ago but never seemed to find the time. I'm sorry it has taken so long to get around to doing this, resulting in a lower quality transfer than I would have liked. Now I'm trying to hurry and get as much preserved as I can. I have not done any audio or video corrections. That may make parts more pleasing but also results in data loss. I chose to provide the cleanest raw capture I could, leaving any decisions to massage them to you.

When downloading the videos, make sure that you have enough drive space. Almost all of them are at least 4 GB, with the 2 hour ones being in the neighborhood of 8 GB. The videos are NOT digitized to uncompressed video files - they would simply be too large and waste the precious space available here. I've tried to strike a happy medium. The videos have been digitized to high bit rate MPEG2 files, full frame 720 x 480, 4:2:2 color (for better color accuracy than DV 4:1:1). Unless otherwise noted all videos are NTSC. Maybe a dozen I have are PAL but most of them are duplicates of NTSC ones and won't be uploaded.

I chose MPEG2 mainly because it has reasonable compression, handles this resolution well, and doesn't require a great deal of computing power to decompress which could be important if you wish to edit them on an Amiga. MPEG4 might have resulted in smaller files but would require too many resources to be edited on even some of the newer Amigas. The files are left with some heads and tails. 30 seconds or less at the head from the beginning of the source tape. The tails have mostly been edited to 2 minutes or less and cut on the GOP so there's no recompression of the file. Unfortunately some of the videos start right at the very beginning of the tape so have the tracking overlay displayed. Sorry about that but the deck I've been using couldn't disable the overlay.

I hope that these have been good compromises. If you have any better suggestions I'm certainly open to changing things.

Where I have them, I've scanned CD covers and inserts, Tape box or cover sheets to insert in tape case, and indices. As with the documentation, everything is scanned at 300 dpi, 24 bit color or grayscale as appropriate, and saved to PDF files. Eventually I will also be adding floppy and CD labels for anyone who wants to recreate the physical media.

The tool I used to do the scanning and assembly of the PDF files is a neat Open Source Windows (sorry) tool called NAPS2 (Not Another PDF Scanner 2). This lets you scan multiple things from multiple sources, import images, cut, copy, move, crop, and basic color correct pages to assemble the final PDF. Another great feature is importing PDF files and manipulating and exporting the underlying images.

This is useful so that instead of just printing the PDF directly you can use the original images. So the PDFs of the covers, boxes, labels, etc can be manipulated as needed for your purposes. Basically all sides of the boxes will be in one PDF, or the labels for all of the floppies for one program will be in one PDF, etc for convenience to break up as / if you need.

I hope that made sense You can get NAPS2 at https://sourceforge.net/projects/naps2/

Any questions, comments or obscenities, please let me know
