The New Amigas

I found this when browsing the Internet Archive...

The New Amigas

Before there was a Macintosh, the Amiga was the computer for the creative community. This program looks at the Amiga 2000, the Amiga 500, Photon Video Cell Animator, Music X, Video Toaster, and Interceptor. Originally broadcast in 1988.

I think it means, that the Amiga was tied up to the artistic scene BEFORE the Mac was. Not that the Amiga was released before the Mac. When released, the Mac had nothing to do with digital art, video, music and that sort of stuff, like it is today. It was more sort of a home or office solution, later delving into DTP.

(that's why I always wanted to have a mac when young, to me it was the natural "philosophical sucessor" to the Amiga)

aAhh how I loved computer Chronicles, but I watched it from 1994 and ahead. Let's check out this episode.

hahah.

Just watched this show. Deluxe Paint was in its early releases, and Music X was not even released. This is -early-

Then came the Video Toaster. I can understand what this meant to video! I mean, the guy showed how that bitch processed a realtime video feed, in real time, without a single DROP on the framerate!! That shit is valuable. Current VJing software couldn't do it that smooth I guess, not even with the simplest effect, unless you have a machine much much much beefier than a 7Mhz Amiga with a special graphics card (which is not any of the pixel-shading, gigaflop-pushing Radeons :roll)

The effects are cheese (more now), but obviously it got expanded. Shit like this has only been done quite recently. I mean, with that real time performance and all. In-fucking-credible.

Now I want a Toaster box! :P

I have that video on my HD along with 2 other amiga related ones from the same site. The toaster affects were cool, which is why they still command a few bucks so many years later (on ebay anyway).
