DiscreetFX Announces Wild Flyer For The Amiga Video Toaster Flyer®


DiscreetFX Announces Wild Flyer For The Amiga Video Toaster Flyer®

Our beta testers have reported no major problems with the latest
build of Wild Flyer so we will be shipping it shortly to our Video
Toaster Flyer customers. What is Wild Flyer you ask? It is a Front End
application to the very powerful and often misunderstood program
Wild Fire. Wildfire 7 is a ADO animation sequencing, 3D effects,
transitions, and animation package by Andreas Maschke. It can be
compared to SGI Flint or Flame systems and it is capable of creating
amazing 3D effects by mapping video sequences.

The bad news about Wild Fire has always been the steep learning curve
and very difficult to understand user interface. Wild Flyer changes
all this. It uses all the power of Wild Fire as its background render
engine. Wild Flyer gives this amazing German application an easy to
use storyboard interface. All actions happen within the Video Toaster
Flyer screen. Users can just drag and drop the ADO animation sequences
within their Flyer and Wild Flyer takes care of the rest.

Imagine the power of an SGI Flint or Flame system but on your Amiga
VT Flyer! And it is very easy to use unlike these high end SGI ADO
solutions. WF attains its speed by using the power of a PowerPC
processor as its rendering effects engine. The PPC processor does not
have to be in your Amiga. It can be a networked Amiga One or Pegasus
computer. If you already have a Phase 5 CyberstormPPC card in your
Amiga this will also work but will be slower.

Wild Flyer features include

1. Height-field deforms, cubes that automatically unfold and fold

2. Lightwave object support.

3. 3D magnet effects, 3D transitional morphing, unlimited mathematical
deformations, twists, sphere mapping, twirling, water transitions,
perspective transforms and more!

4. Easy to use interface that opens on the Video Toaster Flyer screen.

5. All effects are pure 24bit, no pixelizing or jaggie edges.

6. Full support for all Amiga PowerPC solutions

a. Amiga One running Amiga OS 4.0

b. Pegesus running MorphOS 1.0

c. SharkPPC G3/G4

d. Cyberstorm PPC running PowerUP

e. Another PowerPC solution that has not been announced yet.

Minumum system

Amiga 4000 with CyberstormPPC card, Video Toaster 4000 & Flyer card,
18MB RAM, 1 GB Harddisk.

Recommended system

Amiga 4000 with Mediator PCI busboard and SharkPPC card, Video Toaster
4000 & Flyer card.

Or Amiga 4000 with Video Toaster 4000, Flyer card and Network card
that supports TCP/IP networked to Amiga One or Pegasus computer system.

***More information comming soon***




Get Wild Flyer and let your Video Toaster Flyer go wild.

Best regards
