Image viewer that can pan smoothly?

Does it exist an image viewer for A1200 (non-RTG) that can display .IFF images that are larger than the current screen mode.

AND you can pan/scroll the image smoothly with the mouse?

For Example in Deluxe Paint you can pan the image with keyboard, but the scrolling is not smooth and the image flickers.

Maybe ViewTek? That was one of the major pre-RTG image viewers. It’s been ages since I’ve used it but I remember it being highly configurable.

The methodology you’re looking for is probably to open an autoscrolling screen larger than the displayable resolution (i.e., a 1280x800 NTSC LoRes screen). I *think* ViewTek can do that.

Mysticview is another one to test.

Mostra does exactly what you need

I choose ViewTEK in the end, it can pan smoothly and also can play ANIMs. In addition to iff pictures I have been experimenting with converting modern gif pixel art to ANIMs so this was a bonus.

Mostra was good, I liked its options better and that it could fade-in/fade-out. But no ANIM support.

Mysticview has more of an RTG focus, so not for me in this case.
