while the ArtificialHeart is well known, I missed the NightFlight image,
which is even more impressive - just colorcycling - this is really one of it's kind.

on Graphicraft v1.2 (1987)(Commodore).zip.
you have to open the image in Graphicraft ( a500 setup does work ) - when loading into DPaint,
for example - the color cycling range will be ignored / not imported :/


#1) someone have to visit Dale Luke and make some video/pictures of all the stuff he stockpiles in his warehouse.

I was think more like a long documentary. There must be a 100 stories to be told about all that stuff..
Curious though, how Dale Luck showed up and somehow got all that stuff considering he left Commodore in 1990, 4 years before they went belly up.

When I worked in California at a startup I sold Jim Sachs his first copy of Lightwave 3D. He gave me a copy of his CD32 Intro animation that Commodore never used. It was much better, I need to find it and put it in the Zone. It was great to meet him in person. I very much enjoyed this interview and I'm glad he did better in later years with his fish tank screen saver. It's awesome, I purchased it long ago for OS X. When I met him he still had the fresh sting of Commodore screwing him which did not sound fun at all!

yes, please share with us. Jim Sachs himself could do that too with all his treasures he may still have.
must be a cool guy, it's really a joy listening to him.

btw, do you still have a genuine copy of the toaster 4.3 cd you may sell? Marchie, in another thread is looking for the real deal.

I'll put 4.3 back on Open Video Toaster for free if it's no longer there.
