Amiga used for special effects in Robocop movie

I just read on IMDB that the "special-effects were generated with an Commodore Amiga computer". Interesting. Not sure how reliable IMDB is but heh-ho.

Wasn't it Robocop 2 rather than Robocop...?

I thought for that movie that an Amiga was used to generate the evil robot's 3d polygon constructed human face that appeared on the TV set thing it had in its head or chest or wherever.

They did use Amigas for Robocop, i think its even featured IN one of the films somewere. There used to be a webpage where they tried to list all movies that has had Commodore 8bit and Amigas in them or where they have been used to create the movies. Google is your friend .
