An Amiga Market In North America? In the last issue of AC, we ran an article on Escorn's plans and announcements for the Amiga. The cover carried their released picture for the new design of the A4000 Tower. This was based on a large presentation given by Escom to members of the Amiga press from all over Europe as well as the one US publication, AC. Just days before this issue went to press, we received news that many of the things originally discussed by Escom had changed. Being Fair On Friday, July 21, Amiga Technologies held a meeting in Philadelphia with a few Amiga dealers and distributors. Petro Tyschtschenko, General Manager for Amiga Technologies GmbH, led the meeting with Ed Goff, A T's Corporate Lawyer, and Jeff Frank, A T's Engineering Director. Also attending were CEI president Alex Amor, Better Concepts executive Craig Rosenfeld, Shawn Monroe of Dark Unicom products, as well as executives from Lively Computer, Software Hut, Micropace, Metropolitan Computers, and Centaur Development. Through a conversation with Craig Rosenfeld plus an eight page fax from Shawn Monroe, I discovered that there is a difference of opinion between what the Amiga Technologies executives believe and the beliefs of the North American Amiga vendors. According to the Amiga vendors, Escom has no plans lo market the Amiga in North America in the immediate future.

Version 6 The final update for all GVP SCSI host adapters!
Years of experience, technical know-how, and competence from the world's best AMIGA software and hardware engineers are condensed in this penultimate product. It makes it possible for the user to productively and comfortably use SCSI, without sacrificing performance, risk of incompatibility, or waste of resources.
Together with exhaustive documentation, the »Guru- ROM« enhonces each Series-ll host adapter in many decisive and for the serious user essential fea- tures: Universal: a SCSI driver without compromise for ail Series-ll host adapters and all »Combo« and »G-Force« accelerator cards for the Amiga 4000, 3000, 2000, 1200, and 500. This ROM module, which has been considerably extended in its code and feature set, replaces all previously distributed driver ROMs.
Fast: unparalleled transfer rales of up to 3.5 MB s raw (Zorro-ll limit), 3.1 MB s measured with »SCSISpeed«,
2. 4 MB s measured with »DiskSpeed« - even on a stock 7-MHz
68000-based Amiga! All the while, the CPU typically retains
80% free processing time. Always maximum performance through
the automatic selection of the currently optimal transfer mode
(DMA, buffered DMA, PIO).
Multifaceted: supports all device types defined in the SCSI standard, such as hard disks, CD-ROM drives, streamers, scanners, and magneto-optical devices.
Compatible: complete support for the RDB standard resulting in trouble-free autoboot, automount, and the exchange of devices and media between two computers from Amiga OS 1.3 through 3.1. Flexible: disconnect reselect, synchronous transfers, and parity checking can be enabled separately for each device (even for devices without an RDB). Also complete write-protection (useful for kiosk applications and for virus protection) is possible.
Intelligent: maximum compatibility with nearly all hardware and software through special handling of all known firmware bugs of the most popular SCSI devices and DMA hardware bugs in the A3000 and A4000, workarounds for internal errors in the WD SCSI chip, as well as special modifications to account for defective application software.
Upward-carnpatibler'completely compatible both to the SCSI-2 as well as to the SCSI-1 standard, thereby providing the broadest support for all devices an the market including those still to come.

carried their released picture for the new design of the
A4000 Tower. This was based on a large presentation given
by Escom to members of the Amiga press from all over Europe
as well as the one US publication, AC.
Just days before this issue went to press, we received news that many of the things originally discussed by Escom had changed.
Is There An Amiga Market In North America?
Being Fair On Friday, July 21, Amiga Technologies held a meeting in Philadelphia with a few Amiga dealers and distributors. Petro Tyschtschenko, General Manager for Amiga Technologies GmbH, led the meeting with Ed Goff, AT's Corporate Lawyer, and Jeff Frank, AT's Engineering Director. Also attending were CE1 president Alex Amor, Better Concepts executive Craig Rosenfeid, Shawn Monroe of Dark Unicom products, as well as executives from Lively Computer, Software Hut, Micropace, Metropolitan Computers, and Centaur Development.
Through a conversation with Craig Rosenfeid plus an eight page fax from Shawn Monroe, I discovered that there is a difference of opinion between what the Amiga Technologies executives believe and the beliefs of the North American Amiga vendors. According to the Amiga vendors, Escom has no plans to market the Amiga in North America in the immediate future.
The Amiga 4000 tower (not as previously pictured) will be released with 6MB of RAM and a 512MB drive in an 040 configuration at a selling price of S2700. An 060 version of the same machine will be approximately $ 300 to $ 500 higher. Also, according to their information, although they will produce 100,000 units, there are no plans to sell A1200s in the US and the CD32 will probably not be produced (they will sell out of the existing inventory).
During the meeting, it was reported by both Craig and Shawn that the executives of Amiga Technologies were of the opinion that they could not create a market in North America for the lower priced units. Apparently, the higher priced units have sold quite well in the past without the expense of advertising and marketing so there is no need to expend the money. Of course, each of these individuals is relying on his experience which comes from a background as a Commodore employee.
Craig Rosenfeid stated in a phone conversation after the meeting, "We are not happy with Escom's lack of plans for the (Amiga) technology," Amiga Technologies Responds In a phone conversation on the morning of July 27 (several days after this issue was at press), Mr. Tyschtschenko responded to our requests for information.
He believed that there had been a misunderstanding between the parties. In response to the question of Amiga 1200s in the US he stated, "I am the last guy who will stop the orders." His sentiment is that if there are orders from the US for A1200s, they will supply them.
Mr. Tyschtschenko stated that he was still trying to find a distribution partner in North America who would be "professional" in their approach to the market. He wants someone who will provide the additional funds necessary to market the Amiga in the US, "1 will not give up on the American market and we will not disappoint the dealers who have been important to us," he said.
Mr. Tyschtschenko, referring to his 12 1 2 years with Commodore, was adamant that he knew what the market needed. He stated that ramp-up costs were the reason the Amiga 4000 Tower would be so expensive. There has been a great number of unforeseen costs in completing the project due to the mess that was left by Commodore's exit.
American Technology There is not too much that we as Amiga users have asked foT. We want a company who will support and manufacture the Amiga, We want the same company to sponsor research and development in order to improve the Amiga. Not the least of all, vve want the Amiga marketed and given the opportunity that it should have had all along.
OK, maybe we do want a lot. I mean, Commodore could not do it. Some people would say they never even tried. But, the hard fact of the matter is that the Commodore Amiga is a great piece of technology which has not been utilized by the North American market. This is why we were excited about the announcements and energy we saw from Escom.
At the top of this page, there is an illustration for a hi-density drive from two dealers in the US, Better Concepts and Software Hut. Seeing a need, these two groups decided to get together and create a product Amiga users needed.
Although the product has a suggested retail price of $ 199, they have both discounted it through their mail order channels to SI 19.
These people know there is an Amiga market and they want to work in it. We know this market could be a lot stronger if Amiga Technologies would put their resources into developing it.
Without this commitment, they run the risk of alienating their entire user base.
Let Them Know My impression is that the Amiga Technologies executives are working under the same misconceptions fostered by Mr. Ali which were, in effect, he was unable to market in the US so it is impossible. The problem here is that Ali did not market and, in the end, he did not even provide machines. While stockpiles of Amiga 1200s were being created in Europe (enough that sales were still being drawn from them last fall), dealers in North America were going out of business because they could not get enough machines to sell and cover overhead.
Perhaps the best way to get our feelings across is to let these groups know just how strong Amiga has been and could be again.

Aladdin 4D (A4D) is now in its
4. 0 release and it more than rewards us for the wait. It covers
all of the expected bases for professional software in its
class, and then some.
A4D needs an accelerated Amiga, and it is best appreciated on an AG A Amiga that has a FireCracker24, a Retina, DCTV, or a Resolver board. 1 The New A4D 4.0 interface A4D 4.0 pops up on the screen as expected by users of previous versions, with an XYZ axis centered on the origin and with a rotating ground grid in place below. But that's where the familiarity ends, because there's a lot of new1 and amazing stuff under the hood this go-around.
Sents A4D "plug-ins" that can be expanded as availability and development dictate.
The Aladdin newsletter, "Aladdin's Lamp" (a quarterly publication that can be subscribed to for $ 36.00 a year) always contains at least one new external tool, and sometimes several. External Tools can Anyone who uses A4D and compares it to anything on other platforms comes away with a deep appreciation for Greg Gorby's work use it on an Amiga 4000 with 32MB of RAM, a large hard drive, and preview my animation work with Plav Inc.'s DCTV box. Anyone who uses A4D and compares it to any tiring on other platforms comes away with a deep appreciation for Greg Gorby's work (Greg is the author of
Aladdin 4D as well as the head of ADSPEC).
For starters, two movable menus appear over A4D's editing screen, the "Internal Tool List" and the "External Tool List". There is an important distinction between the two. The Internal Tool List represents command processes that are always resident within the program each time you use it, while the External Tool List repre- also be added from other developer sources. The previous listing of External Tools developed by Shead Data Processing may or may not work with 4.0, and Shead has moved over to Windows to develop his own software, so don't expect his appearance inside A4D anytime soon
(unless Amiga business picks up).

Most of these are familiar to previous users, with choices grouped under the following six headings: Project: For either loading of previous 3D work or starting a new project environment.
Tools: For accessing "primitive" 2D 3D templates, editing polygonal points, adjusting polygons, and toggling a special "trace mode" for tracing around bitmaps to create polygonal or splined shapes.
View: Previewing, rendering, camera, and screen options.
Polygon: Polygonal attributes, textures, and shading. The controls are also here for adding and animating lights, gases, waves, flares, and fountains (particles). In addition, this is the menu that allows you to access and add 2D text shapes that can be extruded into 3D objects.
Paths: Flere is where we can create and assign paths and their respective objects. This menu also lists the controls for poly "deforms", Aladdin's special key-frame and morphing possibilities.
Preferences: The place where various default parameters are set and altered.
Where's the Manual ?
It's all under the hood, Charlie, as far as the upgrade info goes. New users will still get the previous manual, but old or new you'll get all tool info in on-screen "About" text files. These handy descriptors are clear and precise as far as how each tool is to be used, including its variable options.
The new Screen Mode requester Gone is the simplicity of the older A4D Screen Mode requester. In its place is a large user configurable command set that allows you to choose the screen mode, depth, set the ration of horizontal and vertical for your monitor situation, overscan image size, colors, and external boards all at the same time. Operation is very intuitive, so even a new user shouldn't be too overwhelmed by the number of selections.
You can also choose to set the rendering in either or both width and height to double or half. Half gives you quick previews, while double is used once all elements are set to your liking for the final quality render.
Rendering defaults remain as in previous versions, with toggles for Light, Fill, Textures, Phong and Gouraud shading, Transparency, Background, and other selections.
Creating 3D objects in A4D4 The initial screen that greets the user when Aladdin first emerges is the Edit Screen. It is here that objects can be imported or sculpted from the ground up. Aladdin allows the user to work with both lines and B-Splined (Bezier) curves in designing the initial templates from which 3D objects are formed. Drawing always begins from an "Attach Point", a point in XYZ space that the user determines as the starting point of a drawing. The polygonal shape is commonly drawn in a flat plane, but there is no reason that you couldn't explore the possibility of drawing in 3D
space as well.
Once a polygonal template is finished, it can be extruded on any axis (including extrusions that are diminished or augmented over the extruded length) or spun (lathed) on any axis (including alterations in the lathing process that effect the degree of "spin" and the dimension of each segment).
Aladdin can also import objects in the VideoScape ASCII format, a standard that is used in many 3D libraries of images available on CD ROM.
Full "path extrusion" (sometimes called "rail extrusion") is also supported. Aladdin takes this process to a new depth by allowing the user to path-extrude both 2D and 3D objects, resulting in some very unique creations. It's easy, for instance, to generate rails for a roller coaster or a spiral staircase using this method.
Objects can also be scaled and or rotated as they are extruded, giving the artist even more variations in unique object creation.
An added feature in object creation is the new LOSCut tool, meaning "Line Of Sight Cutter". With this tool, any 2D polygon can be cut by another "cookie cutter" shape for instant hole cutting. Windows and holes in any flat plane are easy to generate with this tool. I've even experimented with cutting holes in a 3D solid and achieved notable results.
Textures A4D4 has the most extensive texture mapping capabilities of any package on any platform, and unless you have tried all of the other packages as I have, you can't argue me out of this position. You can map any bitmapped texture to any object any number of times with different textures each time, and the A4D library also contains thirty-three separate and infinitely variable "procedural" textures, algorithmic textures that can be altered as to size and palette.
Procedural and bitmapped textures can be altered over time by adjusting their parameters, resulting in organic waves and swatches of intriguing color and form. Any texture can be placed on an object in A4D as a standard map, a bump map, a reflection map, a genlocked map, opacity, hardness, illumination maps, or an alpha channel. If that isn't enough, any or all of these options can be combined in any manner over the length of an animated sequence, and can be projected onto the surface as if from a slide projector or wrapped in a number of ways.
Any shopes you create can be saved as keyboard characters in a font set, so the way is open to have a "font set" that has, for instance, architectural objects or anything else.
Textures can also be mapped so that they slide on and off of a selected object over time. Both Phong and Gouraud shading are supported, as well as all needed attribute definitions (reflectivity, wave sensitivity, color, self illumination, hardness, transparency, and more).
Text A4D accepts all PostScript shapes as polygons, so all PostScripted drawing you might do in a vector drawing program can be imported and extruded in 3D, given texture, and animated. This obviously includes lines of text in any PS font. There is a collection of font libraries on board, with more added from time to time in the newsletter. But now comes the fun.
Any shapes you create can be saved as keyboard characters in a font set, so the way is open to have a "font set" that has, for instance, architectural objects or anything else. Font sets can be created and saved according to any customizable need you have now or in the future.
The greatest new feature in version 4.0 is that of interactive beveling of 2D text polys that results in the creation of an infinite number of beveled text looks. No other software anywhere offers this possibility, but watch for it to make an appearance in other software when developers get wind of it. This tool also works with input values in an extrusion table, but it is in the interactive domain that the real explorative fun lies.
The menu selections work in cooperation with interactive mouse movements so that various constraints can be set beforehand to achieve certain beveled looks. To top it all off, you can create a C-Spline that represents a "router bit", and then apply this to your text.
Aladdin 4D 4.0 The Tool Aladdin 4D 4.0 is an astounding tool that computer graphics artists and animators can use to create impossible realities and new digital worlds of exploration. With easy and inviting ways to produce flares, ripples, gases, infinite texture mapping capabilities, as well as all of the standard expectations that professional animators require, Aladdin 4D is one of the true jewels in the Amiga animation crown.
Ai(.isr 1995 Animation, Animation, Animation A4D4 allows you to animate objects as well as the textures mapped to them. Objects generally move along a set "Path", a polygonal shape that determines their movement and position over time. All animation At a price that belies its exhaustive power, Aladdin-4D 4.0 remains an Amiga artist's and animator's miracle package.
Movements in A4D are controlled with C-Splines, Bezier curves that tell an object when to do what and how many times to do it. Coming in a future version will be extensive key-frame animation capabilities in addition to path movement, though the present "deform" routines already give you extensive key-framing options in the present version.
A polygonal path is set with its own rotations and scaling potentials, so that any object assigned to it takes on those same parameters. The paths of various parameters can be set to specific animation sequences of frames, and "cyclic" (one way animation) or "periodic" (back and forth animations, sometimes called "ping- ponging") are both supported.
Movements can be timed from point to point of the polygonal path or set to move evenly according to the overall shape, allowing you to time certain transitions according to the number of points a polygonal path contains, or to negate this altogether.
Creating a number of points in one area of a path poly, for instance, can slow down the movement of the object assigned to the path, or this can be handled entirely through C-Spline intervention. C-Splines are used in almost every part of A4D4 to fine tune all of the possible movements of an animated object.
The Path Control Requester also allows for another high-end animation capability: Instancing. Instancing might be described as patterned cloning without the penalty of needing extensive disk space to store multiple objects. If you designed a bird and instanced it along a path, you could wind lip with an animation that showed a whole flock of cloned individuals.

"Deforms" are a unique A4D utility and represent yet another way that 3D objects are set in motion. They can be used to act as standard key frame controls and to contort (morph) the object into a new shape. This can be set to occur over a definitive time period so that an animated "mouth" on a 3D head can be set to open and close.
And Even More New Magic in A4D version 4.0 There are more tools and processes in Aladdin 4D than any single article can touch upon, which is the reason that our continuing series of A4D tutorials remains a vital introduction to the software.
Gas objects, for instance, allow for full user specification as to the density, animated components, and colorization (including the application of bitmapped textures and animated sequences of still frames).
Brand new to A4D4 is the ability to actually fly through a gas, with all of the visual excitement that you might suppose happens on the way. A4D also contains one of the most complete particle systems available as a resident part of the software, not as an expensive add on utility. Particles are called "Fountains", and the Fountain requester that is used to set up a particle animation may be a bit daunting to the novice animator, but determined exploration leads to mastery.
Clouds, smoke, sprays of sparks, lava, water, rain, and many more organic phenomena wait for your touch. Waves, both bump-map like and true 3D contortions, can be applied at will.
And So... All rendering and computation intensive routines show at least a 200% increase in speed over previous versions. At a price that belies its exhaustive power, Aladdin-4D 4.0 remains an Amiga artist's and animator's miracle package. I can't believe any serious Amiga artist could deny themselves the opportunity to get lost in the swirls of its seductive pathways.
Give yourself a gift. Run, fly, transport yourself to the nearest star station and purchase one of the most wondrous art and animation packages that exists on any digital platform. This is an investment in creativity that you'll never regret.

Our Amazing Artist Discovers that Drawing can be Fun AND
Productive.
ProUtctor_881 3. Copyright gfe 1909-1 95 by Stylus, Tn SJ LsaJ ? 1 UntltUd IMJ Ck 0 - r~- n pi H 5 t i - i i - P cm o Figure 1. With PV3’s Blend mode, any number of transitional stepped graphics can be generated between ony two vector objects.
There are two types of 2D graphics that can be created on a computer. The first is represented by programs like TrueBrilliance and Dpaint. These are called "paint programs", and their output is very colorful. What they lack, no matter how good they are, is clarity when you either reduce their size or when they are enlarged. Edges are seen to exhibit that class one nightmare,., the dreaded jaggies. Even when the edges are antialiased in a painting program (smoothed into surrounding colors), it only trades a definitive bluriness for a hoped-for sharp edge.
Drawing programs differ greatly from painting programs. Instead of storing the image's pixels when a graphic is saved, a drawing program saves the vectors or directions that the lines contain. Because of this, no matter how large or how small the graphic may become, it always has the same "resolution" independent of both printer and screen. You may still see jaggies on the screen, but this is because the screen is incapable of resolving the image as it really exists.
When printed out on paper (or when imaged on special slide film cameras capable of displaying the truth in vector images) the jaggies can become 100% invisible. The only way that anything like this can be achieved in a painting program is to work in screen sizes that require ridiculous amounts of memory to sustain huge images, and then to display them on extremely expensive monitors that support these resolutions (and the computers and graphics cards that deliver appropriate scan rates to drive the monitors, with which the Amiga has a problem).
ProVector ProVector, now in its third incarnation, is a drawing program (like its name) which allows you to work in vector rather than pixel formats. This latest version supports AGA Amigas as well as all the rest, so drawings can exhibit fill ranges which include up to 256 colors or shades of gray. There are three separate, yet integrated, modules that make up the program: RexxRequest, PSImport, StylusTracer, and ProVector 3.
RexxRequest Arexx is both a language and a handshaking capability that allows Amiga software packages to speak with each other, so that actions taken in one program can effect and utilize another. Most of the higher end Amiga painting and drawing software is Arexx compatible, and ProVector 3 is no exception. Arexx scripts can act like magic buttons that automate loads of processes which would otherwise clutter up tool boxes and add chaos to any interface.
PSImport ProVector has the unique ability to allow for the importation and visual display, as well as the editing, of PostScript files. Text objects, gradient fills, and clipping paths (masks) are all supported. The resultant images can be saved out as PostScript, D2D, Adobe Illustrator, and IFF formats.
StylusTracer If I was to choose only a single reason why you might want to investigate PV3, it just might be the StylusTracer module. I have used just :c i;.., I3. ¦ lH.. ¦ i5,.. Is... El.. 1L ¦ i a. j H r-- i - i-i i-i n is n is 3 - Be about all of the tracers on the market, on the Amiga and elsewhere. Tracers perform the function of turning bitmapped graphics into vector graphics. StylusTracer is the best one that I have ever used.
I spent many hours attempting to translate a few pen and ink illustrations and logos that I designed into vector graphics with other programs, always with unsatisfying results.
StylusTracer gave me the results that 1 required, and did so in a minimal amount of time. You can also use Tracer's on-board drawing tools to create a vector graphic from scratch.
This module is very fast considering the complexity of the calculations it must perform. Results are absolutely first rate.
PV3, the main program Aside from the expected drawing tools, PV3 lists a good many advances over its previous version. Chief among these is its support of AGA architecture. Smooth 256 color gradients are now possible with this new added feature. The interface looks much cleaner and up to date than the last version as well.
Of note are the new gradient fill options, which should be addictive enough for you to play with for a long while. These are accessed through a newly designed requester that lists both Fill and Line options. The gradients themselves fall into four groups: Conic, Linear, Radial, and Shape. Each of these is open to any of six transitions, as well as being addressable as to either color or gray scale percentages. PV3 adds both HP- GL and Adobe Illustrator file formats.
Extremely anti-aliased 24-bit output has also been added so that you can port the PV3 graphics into a paint program and combine the best of both worlds.
Text manipulations are a first priority interest of vector graphics users, and PV3 comes to the table with extensive text creation and manipulation capabilities. One of my favorite uses of the program is to create lines of text (yes, you can have more than one line composed at a time), translate the Figure 2A (top). Here are lines of lext filled with gradients and ready for manipulation in PV3. Figure 2B (middle). The Warp Effects have been applied, and the light blue lines tell us what Ihe finish will look like. Figure 2C (bottom).
Here's how the finished warp looks on screen, smooth and ready for output.
Jether we Waft; in gazing Together we walk in |l 13 I ID ID - 1 - Figure 3. No other software that I used, on any platform, could translate this bitmap into a vector graphic. PV3’s Tracing module did it with ease, and allowed me to then manipulate it further with the Warper Effect.
The object and any data it contains. A text object, for instance, is a rectangular area that encompasses the entire text object block. Altering the control points around the block with the Warp effect produces text that flows in any pseudo 3D perspective you could ever desire (not that we should neglect the fact that PV3 also allows you to wrap text on a curve when needed).
Letters to objects, and then to alter the entire shape by applying the new effects tools.
Oh, didn't I tell you about the effects tools yet? Well, allow me to rectify that oversight. The effects tools operate on any vector based object on the PV3 screen. They include Skew, Mirror, Warp, perspective, and Blend.
Two of these deserve a fuller explanation.
Warp is my favorite. Selecting an object and then applying a warp to it gives you maximum control over both The Blend tool, like its counterpart in other Amiga vector graphics software, allows you to create any number of in-between morphed objects between two selected keyframed objects on the screen. All of the PV3 effects options work flawlessly.
Drawing There are four basic drawing tools or methods in PV3: freehand curves, line curve tool, polygon, and ellipse. No matter which you use, the shape is written to the screen as a series of controllable Bezier curves.
What makes ProVector an easier to manipulate drawing program is the way that its Bezier curves can be controlled. Instead of the standard iinear adjustment points, ProVector's Beziers are controlled by an adjustment button that shows its connection to both ends of the curve, This makes controlling the length and curvature much easier. Bezier curves are an example of an engineer's drawing method, and artists brought into computer graphics from the traditional media, as I was, need intuitive grasps on the new tools. In ProVector, this need is accounted for.
Conclusion For those of you crying alligator tears about the lack of Amiga vector graphics software of high quality still being upgraded, Stylus replies by putting their development where their PR is... in the marketplace. The program comes with both an older manual for the 2.1 edition of the software, as well as razor-edge updated docs in easily accessible AmigaGuide files on the disk. This software goes where even Adobe Illustrator fears to tread, and with a little support from the Amiga community, it'll go even further.
That's all for now kids. Enjoy!
And, oh yes, see you in ROMulan space.

Photogenics 1.2 by R. Shamms Mortier We have finally reached the point where the edges between a paint program and an image manipulation program have become blurred beyond recognition. In the "good old days" (were they really that good?) Some few years ago, a person was a person and a horse was a horse... Dpaint was a paint program and ADPro was an image manipulation program. Now, a person and a horse are one, a centaur that joins the two.
This pace was originally set by Nova Designs' ImageFX, Digital Creation's Brilliance, and Blackbelt System's Image Master. Now that longing for joining, taunted into existence by the English developers at Almathera, has produced Photogenics, a program that is emerging with the intention of challenging the established leaders in both 2D painting and image manipulation software categories.
Even the initial appearance of Photogenics is deceiving. As it pops on screen, it seems to be a clone of the vintage ADPro software, complete with vertical lists of Savers, Loaders, and image processing tools accessible in re-positionable menus. An inch below the familiar soil however, Photogenics is its own person, and not to be arbitrarily compared to any other similar package on the market.
Import Export formats Photogenics gets a grade of A+ here. It can import ACBM (an old, old Amiga mode), AmigaScreen (grabs anything you can bring up), Backdrops (generates graduated color screens), BMP, CDXL (one frame at a time of CDTV and CD32 files), GIF (CompuServe format graphics), IFF24, IFF DEEP (for TV Paint users), ILBM's (all kinds), IMG (Atari), Impulse (Turbo Silver and Imagine), JPEG (very fast at this). Noise (creates a jitter screen for compositing), Pattern (creates patterns for compositing), PBM (especially for UNIX machines), PCX, Plasma (creates special plasma screens for
compositing or backgrounds), ProGrab24RT, QRT, QuadAnim (proprietary), RAW, Ripples (creates ripples for compositing). Streaks (creates streaks for compositing), Text (all text operations take place in a separate buffer), TIFF (a great no-problems TIFF loader), and V-LAB (from the MacroSystems digitizer). It saves files to many of the above as well as to most of the 24bit graphics boards Amiga users might have.
Painting Electronic Arts would be shamed by the collection of artistic brushes offered in Photogenics. Dpaint V has before you go on. Photogenics has no discernible UNDO function, which I missed terribly. This software has to get up to speed with multiple undos ASAP!
Here, but the count is fifty-nine. They encompass all of the ones you might alreadv have a degree of familiarity with, and a good number brand new to the game. Most have associated preference listings where their settings can be adjusted, so the real number is Even the initial appearance of Photogenics is deceiving. As it pops on screen, it seems to be a clone of the vintage ADPro software... only four selections. Photogenics has airbrush (very professional version), pencil, chalk pastel, watercolor, felt tip, crayon, sponge, cloth, and neon.
The actual painting methods take a little getting used to, since the same area just painted upon can be targeted for image translation selections as well. Each operation must be "fixed" Image Manipulation Tools What most Amiga users have come to call Image manipulation Tools, Photogenics calls "Paint Modes", further blurring the line between the two. Whether this is due to a diverse cultural slant or a new developing language, I won't hazard a guess. 1 wouldn't dare list all of them uncountable. Many are geared to work with either or both the Alpha and secondary image settings.
Alpha par Excellence!
Photogenics Alpha channel and secondary image compositing capabilities match any similar capabilities on any micro-computer platform, definitely including the MAC and the PC. I don't know if they are planning to port Photogenics over to any other system, but if so, that targeted system will enjoy what only Amiga users can thrill to now, an unlimited number of image compositing options. At any time, a Loaded image can be dropped into the secondary or Alpha boxes for explorations. Any non-Amiga users out there who try to use Adobe's PhotoShop to accomplish the same things have a much more
complex learning curve to master. This could be the central reason that you might purchase Photogenics.
Animating Forget it for the most part.
Photogenics has no tools or support for animation, other than allowing you to load screens from its proprietary "Quad Anim'' format. Quad Anims exist only as the output of Almathera's "Video Creator" package. Almathera should move to incorporate both ANIMS files as well as ANIM brushes, but maybe they want to avoid committing themselves to any larger animation role with Photogenics, and are saving that for another yet to be seen separate animation package.
Conclusions 1 suffered one bad system crash after loading four images into Photogenics. It wouldn't allow me to delete any of the images, although Chip RAM was disastrously low and I wanted to free up some memory. The whole screen went blank soon after.
There should be far better safeguards in the software to prevent low Chip RAM situations and resultant crashes (I have two megs on the A4000 I was working on). ImageFx from Nova Designs is a good distance ahead of Photogenics when it comes to previewing image manipulation features.
Photogenics has a rather confusing way of addressing previewing alterations, and I found it somewhat AMIGA REPLACEMENT & UPGRADE CHIPS PRICE Video DAC (A 1200) $ 27.50 A500 ...$ 39 95 $ 49 95 13 ROM $ 1495 ....$ 37.50 A2000 ...... $ 46 95 A20G0 (U S version) KKQ E94YC 312716-02 $ 69 95 2 04 ROM $ 27 55 .. .$ 14,95 $ 5995 204 ROM (A3000; $ 44 50 .. .$ 59.95 POWER SUPPLIES $ 7995 2CSRCM |V37 350) $ 25 75 6570-036 Keyboard IC . .. $ 19.50 $ 16.95

Paxtroii CORPORATION difficult to sandwich operations together in batches. I would prefer a more intuitive approach to the previewing functions. Almathera's decision to support only those users who have installed the 3.0 and higher versions of the operating system is a severe limitation, making it suitable for only those users who either operate an Amiga 4000 or 1200, or for those very few who have decided to install the upgraded chips in their 2000's or 3000's (which in the U.S. is not that many). In a way, this makes no sense for Almathera's market in Europe either, where money is even
tighter and many users are still working with the 2.0 operating system and lower.
There should be a version of Photogenics that addresses non-3.0 users as well. Another suggestion is that images should be brought in under menus, not on top of them. The Mode and Brush buttons in the menu need to be toggles so that they can turn these menus off as well as on. As far as new tools are concerned, the Photogenics "Warper" is a good idea that needs more thought and development (Bezier controls would be nice) to be utilized as more than a toy.
Photogenics is across the board what it claims to be, a very quality oriented application that Amiga artists and image manipulation seekers will thoroughly enjoy.
Photogenics excels in the area of image manipulation options, offering quite a few that are completely new to the Amiga image enthusiast. This alone is going to convince obsessive image manipulators to absorb Photogenics into their libraries. In the area of 24bit painting, and electronic painting in general, Photogenics shines like a rare jewel when it comes to working on imported graphics. With the somewhat disappointing showing of the Dpaint V software as a comparison on the low end, and with Brilliance and other 24bit painting software as higher end competition, Photogenics can more than
hold its own as a photographic paint program. The Photogenics screen grabber looks like it was designed so that working between Photogenics and other dedicated Amiga paint programs is fostered (especially with TVPaint), enhancing cooperation rather than competition.
The Photogenics manual is a first rate document that you will want to study carefully. It outlines all of the tools and processes in both referential and tutorial form.
In short, Photogenics is across the board what it claims to be, a very quality oriented application that Amiga artists and image manipulation seekers will thoroughly enjoy. And more than that, Almathera has kept Amiga development alive at a time when many others have jumped ship.
The fact that their wares are now becoming more available in the U.S. is a positive sign of new life for the best platform around.
Photogenics 1.2 Almathera Southerton House, Boundary Business Court 92-94 Church Road, Mitcham, Surrey CR4 3TD, England ¦AC* What is the best way to compress a disk full of data? You could use a program such as Arc or Lha to compress the individual files and directories, then instruct the recipient of your compressed file to use the appropriate command to restore original directory structure. However, if you want to compress something like a game demo that does not use standard AmigaDOS files, these types of programs won't work. Enter the Device Masher, from ParCon Software.
A Specialized Compression Program, and Three Music and Sound Players are waiting for You On-Line!
Device Masher System The Device Masher System (DMS) is a track-based compressor, rather than file-based, such as Arc. This means that it will create an image of a disk track by track, then compress that image file. When uncompressed, the original disk track structure is restored. This means any special track structures are also restored, making DMS the compression utility of choice for game demos, since these almost always use non-standard disk formats.

Workbench, V2.02, is a GUI for DMS that adds standard gadget
control to DMS functions.
Recently updated to version 2.01, DMS can now utilize the high density disks supported by Workbench 2.04 and above. It will also use the Pcx drives created by CrossDOS, which allows you to exchange DMS files with IBM clones.
DMS2.01 is shareware, with a $ 30 registration fee. The downloadable archive includes a demo version that is usable only from the CLI or Shell, and has some features disabled. The registered version includes a graphical interface, 40% faster operation, and other goodies. Also included in the distribution are a file-based compression program, a utility to add custom messages to the boot-block of floppy disks, and a device driver. This allows you to mount a DMS file as a virtual drive for use without unpacking the file to a disk.
Programmed by Michael Pendec, DMS is distributed as a self-extracting archive that is 129,912 bytes. If you are using a 2400 bps modem, expect a download time of approximately 11 minutes. A 14.4 kbps modem will get the job done in just over one minute.
DMS Workbench Of course, a Shell or CLI-only program is seen as a challenge to some programmers, and Nicholas Clarke has created a GUI for DMS (Figure 1).
Currently at version 2.02, the DMS Workbench adds standard gadget control to DMS functions.
Since Mr. Clarke is credited in the main DMS documentation, and the 42,669 byte archive contains only the interface program, I assume no further shareware fee is requested.
At 2400 bps, DMS mouse control is about 3.5 minutes away, and less than 30 seconds at 14.4kbps. Music, Maestro!
With its built-in sound capabilities, music and sound players have been a mainstay of Amiga programmers from the beginning. Three recent updates illustrate the current state-of- the-art in this category.
Play 16 Programmed by Thomas Wenzel and currently at version 1.5, Playl6 does not try to do everything. However, what it does, it does very well.

It supports files of up to 16 bit resolution, converting as needed to accommodate your hardware. Many different sound file formats are supported, including the increasingly popular .wav format found in the clone world.
An option is included to convert other formats to the Amiga standard IFF file if you desire. One nice feature is the playing of monophonic samples through both audio channels, instead of only the left.
Included in the 86,606 byte distribution archive are two versions of the program, one of which is for '040 processors, English and German documentation, and a program called CyberSound. This last is by Christian Buchner, and allows you to tailor the sound driver to the Digital Analog converters installed in your particular Amiga. These chips vary widely in their conversion characteristics, and this program will help you get the best sound.

PowerPlayer PowerPlayer, from Stephan Fuhrmann, is a music file player. Able to play files created by a number of popular music programs, version 4.1 is the most recent. Starting PowerPlayer opens a small, gadget-filled window (Figure 2). Clicking the appropriate BnsaaaEmsHi gadget brings up a file requester.
Choose the song files you wish to play, and PowerPlayer goes to work. A small window displays the name, type, and size of file, as well as showing playing time. Songs can be played in any order, including randomly.
PowerPlayer works with all versions of AmigaDos from 1.2 to 3.1, although 2.0 and higher will give users a bonus; the ability to save song lists.

Support for over 30 different types of programs means you should have no trouble finding songs you like in formats PowerPlayer can handle.
PowerPlayer is shareware, with a fee of 30 Deutschemarks. Check with your local bank for currency conversion rates. The 159,643 byte distribution archive includes all necessary support libraries, and an Installer script to handle their placement. At 2400 bps expect to be connected for a little over 13 minutes, 14.4kbps users will be finished in about a minute and a half.
SuperPlay SuperPlay, from Andreas Kleinert, is actually a demonstration program, utilizing his superplay.library, which is at version 4.3. This is a shared library, allowing maximum flexibility for future sound modules. SuperPlay itself (Figure 3) is at version 4.1, and besides playing song fifes, it can convert them to other formats in its library. Eight different formats are currently included with the distribution archive. This program requires AmigaDos 2.04 or higher.
The 90,052 byte archive contains all of the user files and documentation.
A separate archive approximately 127,000 bytes in size contains developer info if you are interested in adding to the superplay.library. The user file takes approximately seven and a half minutes at 2400 bps, and less than one at 14.4kbps to transfer.
Figure 3: Andreas Kieinert’s SuperPlay 4.1 plays song files and converts them to other formats in the superplay.library. Where to Look I found DMS 2.01 and DMS Workbench in the AmignUser Forum on CompuServe, in the Archivers Crunchers section, as DMS201.SFX, and DMSWB.LHA, respectively.
Playl6 was found on AmiNet, in the mus play subdirectory as P!ayl6_l_5.iha. In the same directory, PowerPlayer is listed as PowerPlayer.lha, and the Superplay Library is Splib43U.lha. SuperPlay is also in the AmigaTech Forum on CIS, in the Libraries directory.
Most of the systems had earlier versions of one or more of these files, and quite likely will have these new versions by the time you read this.
Update Last time I mentioned that the U.S. version of the encryption program PGP, was not available except on Genie. I have since learned that if you have an Internet account, and access to FTP, it is available at: ftp.csn.net. Go to the mpj directory and read the file README.MPJ. The subdirectory pgp amiga has the program and doc files.

TO ORDER CALL 800-544-6599 MON.-FRI. 9-6, SAT. 9-5CST CUSTOMER SERVICE 414-548-8125 -FAX 414-548-8130 Super Stardust reviravd by jason D'Aprilc It is a sad fact that most of the software for the 32-bit CD32 gaming machines has, at its very best, been barely up to par with the 16 bit Sega CD machine and most of the software isn't even that good. 1 don't know about you, but I didn't get my CD32 just to have pitiful 16 bit games running on a double speed drive with a few more colors added. Frankly, up until Super Stardust, there has not been anything that I know of for the CD32 that is, in any
way, a truly 32-bit CD- ROM game.
Thank you Teaml7, from the bottom of my heart. Super Stardust is, to put it bluntly, incredible.
Of course, it is still essentially the A1200 version shunted over to a CD with some cool CD tunes and cinema sequences added. And, as some of you may know, Super Stardust is actually a sequel to the highly acclaimed A550 game, Stardust. Stardust is Asteroids, essentially, brought to the ultimate level. Stratdust's graphics are completely 3D raytraced and the original was out long before Donkey Kong Country (which was generally touted as the first completely computer generated 3D graphics game).
Super Stardust totally utilizes the AGA chipset and the effects are nothing short of stunning. The CD version also sports a sometimes incredible soundtrack as well, in addition to top notch sound effects. The cinema sequences in the CD32 version are impressive, with excellent boss death scenes and a cool opening sequence as well. Super Stardust's cinemas also use a larger portion of the screen than Alien Breed: Tower Assault did, which is a relief. Of course, Tower Assault still has the best opening sequence ever created for a game, any game, any system, bar none.
The main part of the game is a revamp of the old Asteroid's theme. You are a lone fighter who must destroy an asteroid onslaught, along with menacing extraterrestrials. There is no screen scrolling on these scenes. Instead, when you hit the border of the screen your ship loops to the other side, as do the opponents when they reach the screen fringes. This system adds a new level of play strategy and is great fun to deal with. The game also takes things like inertia, impact and gravity into account which makes Stardust more than just another shooter.
Fortunately, aside from great presentation, Super Stardust has near perfect, smooth as silk control. To play, you have to master things like thrust use, braking, proper shield timing and learning to use the looping factor to your advantage when destroying opponents. In a lesser game from a lesser company, the control problem inherent with such a seemingly complex concept might have been irksome at best.
With Super Stardust, however, the perfect control makes the game a joy to play.
Of course there is more than just shooting asteroids in this game. The 3D tunnel sequences are probably what received the most hype in Stardust and they are impressive. These hyperspeed, between world levels take place from behind the ship viewpoint and require you to avoid a total onslaught of rocks, razors, missiles and other devastating menaces, There are even boss-stvle aliens in the sequences at times. These scenes are similar to Microcosm, only with much more depth, cleaner, larger graphics and better control. Personally, I would love to see a CD32 game that took these incredible
sequences and expanded them into a full length game (similar to Microcosm, or 3DO's Total Eclipse).
Again, as with the asteroid style sequences, control is smooth and responsive, though the 3D perspective and tight evasive maneuvers necessary to escape unscathed make these tunnels a tough place to stay alive through. For all the game's sequences, Super Stardust makes excellent use of the CD32's control pad.
Similar to Tower Assault, Super Stardust used a password system to save game positions, instead of utilizing the CD32's save RAM. While 1 do not mind passwords so much, an option to save the game to RAM would have been nice. Also, the game always starts you at the tunnel sequence to the next world and I wish that it would have given out another password after reaching a new world. The passwords remember how many lives you had and current weapons, which can be problematic if you barely survived the previous world.
Throughout the game's 30 levels of nonstop arcade action, Super Stardust packs in all the various advances that shooters have incurred through the years since Asteroids.
There are power-ups to be gleaned from destroyed rocks. You have a finite, manual shield that must be recharged, in addition to your ship's energy which decreases with each hit.
There are various weapons to be found and powered up - a spread weapon, bouncing laser bolts, even a flame thrower and hunter missile, among others.
And, of course, there are the aliens. Predator ships that stay invisible until just before they strike, worm creatures that follow you and must be destroyed segment by segment, and other space terrors await. There are larger end bosses, which require quick thinking and even quicker action to evade and destroy.
The action level is near constant through the game and Super Stardust is extremely challenging. Thankfully, however, Super Stardust has an excellent learning curve. Each level has six asteroid segments and, while the missions are numerically ordered from left to right, you will not want to complete them in that order. Each mission has an approximate difficult level, so that you can go to a lower leveled mission and power up, then move on to a more challenging spot. Intelligent design and excellent execution, to say the least.
Super Stardust does, rather unfortunately, lack multiple difficulty levels and, more importantly, a two player simultaneous mode, which would have been (both literally and figuratively) a blast. Also, Super Stardust on the CD32 still does not use the entire screen. It has the traditional Amiga black border and 1 wish the developers would do away with that.
Super Stardust is available for both AGA computers and the CD32. The version lias added cinemas and an excellent CD soundtrack, but is otherwise essentially the same game. Of course, the CD32 version also makes excellent use of the 6 button controller, which is a huge plus for playability. There is also a toned down, but still impressive ECS version called, Stardust Special Edition, which runs on any 1 meg Amiga. Also, Super Stardust autoboots itself into PAL mode, so it does not require a PAL booter. Of course, screen adjustment is, as usual, necessary.
Incredible graphics and presentation, unbelievable playability and constant action make Super Stardust a fully immersive gaming experience. It has a great diversity of opponents and challenges and can be a very addictive game. Virtually everything about this game is near perfect for its genre. Super Stardust is not just the only game that, in the least, comes close to being truly 32 bit, but it is also easily one of the very best games for the CD32 and Amiga, or any other console system as well.
No matter what Amiga system you have, if you love games, you have got to get Super Stardust.
Zeewolf reviewed by Rob Hays Games involving helicopters generally fall into one of two categories; full simulations such as Gunship 2000, or arcade shoot-em-ups along the lines of Desert Strike.
Zeewolf, from Binary Asylum, falls squarely into the later category.
There are four types of missions you may be assigned; search and destroy, airlift, escort, and rescue. Each type has its own problems to solve and restrictions to overcome. For instance, one mission calls for the destruction of ground forces, but you have no ammunition.

Mission, you must airlift a tank to areas near enemy installations, wait for the tank to attack and destroy the target, then airlift it to the next location.
After each mission is completed, a report is presented detailing your effectiveness and bonus awards. After every four missions, a password is given that will allow you to restart the game from this point.
The main screen is dominated by a view of your helicopter and its immediate surroundings. As you fly around the combat area, it is almost as if your viewing area was defined by black curtains that objects passed through to suddenly become visible.
This effect can be particularly disconcerting when approaching the aircraft carrier where many missions end, as you can go from flying over open ocean to hitting the sides of the ship with little or no warning.
The upper left comer of the screen is a large-scale map of the vicinity, with enemy and friendly positions marked. The upper right comer shows the view from the gun camera mounted on your helicopter, and lets you know where your current weapon is targeted.
Weapons consist of a cannon, air-to-surface and air-to- air rockets. Not all weapons are available for all missions, and it is almost a sure bet that the one you really need is out of stock at the supply depots. Bar graphs for fuel level tin the left and armor level on the right complete the main screen.
Alternatively, you can bring up the tactical screen, which relegates the view of your helicopter to the upper left comer. The major portion of this screen is devoted to a larger area map, which shows the locations of all units.
Also available is a review of your current mission objectives, with those objectives pinpointed on the map for you.
Game control is either by mouse or digital joystick, and can be switched at any point in the game. The game is definitely easier to control with the joystick, although the mouse control allows more precise movement. I found that a trackball was even better than a mouse for precise control.
Commands for landing, lowering the cargo hook, and weapon selection are handled through keyboard input.
Graphics, while adequate, are nothing special. These consist of filled polygons which give the general appearance of the different objects.
This does have the advantage of allowing fast screen movements. The game was smoother on a 25MHz 68030 processor than on 7MHz 68000, but was still playable on the slower machine. When played on a standard A1200, there was no noticeable difference between the 14MHz 68020 and the faster '030.
Zeewolf comes on a single disk, and while the combination of disk- based and manual-based copy protection seems over zealous, it is really not that intrusive. Since there is no game saving, there is little danger of trashing a non-replace- able master disk. If this concerns you, the game seems to load everything it needs at start-up, so you can even remove the disk from the drive while you play. Zeewolf requires 1 megabyte of RAM, and I tested it on an A500, A1200, and an A-3000, with Kickstart 1.3,2.1, and
3. 0. While it may not break new ground for helicopter games,
Zeewolf guarantees a lot of sweaty, joystick-twisting hours.

A full size rendering and an animated walk-through were created for this fund raising project. The architect was Beavers Smith Langford Mundigcr of Memphis. II started out with a "plan" view of the site, flew down and around, through the front doors into the lobby, and into the theater.
Once there, the viewer took a seat, the house lights went down, the curtains came up, and spot lights danced across the stage to highlight the project name. From there the viewer got up and went down a corridor into a multipurpose conference room. The movable wails opened consecutively to show the large space. The video ended with the viewer strolling to the end of the room where the camera zoomed to a picture of the site plan on an easel.
(continued from page 48) be found. Everyone involved needs to have a clear idea of the breadth of the project. In 1993, Paradigm was contracted to produce their first "Fund Raising" video production.
The Fund Raising videos create excitement for both the community and the potential investor. Detailed, photo-realistic animation of the interior and exterior of a building literally gives the viewer a "before" and "after" interpretation of a renovation or new building project. The process of construction, engineering, landscaping and interior design is captured right before the client's eyes. Paradigm's video productions have laecome popular marketing tools. To date, they have completed their 8th fund raising video. The projects include a community theater renovation, a community college,
three church projects, and a corporate building project among others.
Paradigm's prospective market widened when they began to develop WLMT Channel 30's on-air animations and created custom screen transitions for the producer of the ESPN Fitness Pros program. Fora recent political campaign advertisement, they created a key animation sequence featuring an obstacle course.
Another interesting project involved animating a series of massing studies for tire Memphis Wonder series Imperial Tombs of China. (Architects - Williamson, Haiziip, and Pounders) Their services are now extensive and have branched into new territories such as theater design, video brochures and portfolios, training tapes, legal re-enactments, animated company logos and trademark designs, television commercials, and photo composition which combines a photo of an existing site witli computer images.
Paradigm Productions uses DntaCAD, a PC-based 3D Architectural CAD system to create the majority of the geometric 3D models used in rendering animation projects. DataCAD accomplishes the task of creating an architectural 3D model quickly and accurately. Each different material (glass, wood, mullions, roof, walls, etc.) is put on a different layer and a separate DXF file (drawing exchange format) is output.
The files are then transferred to the Amiga using a high-density floppy drive and a program called CrossDos and imported into an animation program. Both Imagine and Lightwave 3D are currently used since each converts the DXF format into its own proprietary object formats.
Once in Imagine or Lightwave, object attributes are generated to describe the surface characteristics of each material i.e. glass is transparent with a hard glossy surface, while brick is simulated with a 46 A AIA ZING COM I UTIV G The CSI Building in Paducah, Kentucky (right).

and sized (focal length). A few test renderings are run and modifications are made to the building material attributes, lighting, and camera position if needed. This test rendering is shown to the client for approval.
A finai test rendering is output and printed on a Fargo PrimeraPro dye sublimation printer. This print is marked up with a Sharpie marker showing possible locations for entourage (i.e. trees, cars, people, etc.). Depending on the scope of the job, Paradigm will go to different extremes in modeling the site on which a building sits.
Generally, they start with a flat site in which they push and pull on points to simulate the changes in grade. Then in DataCAD, a site plan is drawn (or modified from CAD files provided by the architect), which includes curb lines, sidewalks, and parking stall lines. This is output to a plot file, which is converted in the program Hijack Pro into a two color bitmap PCX file.
The PCX file is transferred to the Amiga and loaded into AdPro (Art Department Professional). It is then scaled by 75% (in order to perform anti-aliasing on the hard edges) and converted to a 24-bit IFF file.
The IFF file is loaded into a full featured 24- bit paint program called OpalPaint. Areas of the site are painted and filled in to look like asphalt, concrete, grass, etc. Back in the 3D Amiga program, the finished site map is applied to the site object and added to the scene. A final raytrace picture file is rendered with shadows and reflections. The sky is left black so that a real sky can be added in behind it. After compositing the sky, the picture is loaded into OpalPaint where touch-up and entourage are added. Trees are painted and people and cars are added from Paradigm's library of
entourage pictures.
Final output is sent to either ' a dye sublimation printer or a studio where a photo negative is produced for slides or photographs. Animations are output to videotape via a Sony EVO9650 Hi-8 video deck and dubbed to VHS or any other tape format.
What's on the horizon for Paradigm Productions? Every member of their management team is an avid game player and their plans include expanding into the interactive, multimedia CD-ROM game market. Their goal is to combine "visually stimulating, environmental and structural imagery" with challenging strategy and adventure. Without a doubt, the result will be awesome.

enterprising 90's, innovators in traditional professions use
their "street smarts" to diversify into new businesses. A
perfect example is Paradigm Productions, a group of architects
specializing in Three Dimensional Design and Animation. With
cultural influences like MTV and the success of
computer-animated films, such as Jurassic Park, today's
consumer has become visually sophisticated and demands more
graphical feedback. In response to this partnership that would
soon lead to very innovative work in their field. Their
specialty is "Virtual Environments" featuring vivid structural
interiors and exteriors. Once a 3D computer mode! Is created,
they can provide a client with a series of renderings and
animations for approximately the same cost as traditional hand
drawn methods, and at the same time, offer greater flexibility,
accuracy, and reproducibility.
Trend, Paradigm has broken out of their conventional business model and found a niche for their talents.
Formed in 1992, Paradigm Productions, was the brainchild of two progressive architects, Charles Gaushell and Scott Carter. Both had strong backgrounds in 3D design and computer graphics. Demand soon grewr for their creative animation services in the architectural community of Memphis, Tennessee. They forged a The sales cycle of large architectural projects and renovations is long and complex. An architect or builder must market and sell ideas to decision makers: clients, commercial tenants, city planning officials, zoning and regulatory agencies, committees, review boards, and municipali
