This was Amiga history in the making, for on this fateful weekend, the now famous Penn & Teller Toaster video was made. Lou and I ate the food and got in the way of just about everyone. That was our contribution. And we saw the Toaster in action for real! I won’t repeat the jokes. I can’t tell you if Teller has a last name or vocal cords. But 1 will say this: We wanted a Toaster, That wish has been granted. There is now a new item lurking in the recesses of Lou Wallace's cave-like confines. A real NewTek Video Toaster is now attached to several monitors, a Super VHS deck, and a video camera that’s mounted on an electric motion-control device. This is the real deal, pal. This is why we decided it was sale to do another cover story about the Toaster. The Toaster is just the beginning. We are hearing from a wide variety of vendors about other breakthrough products. People are starting to think big. And we will cover these as they appear. But for this October issue, we’re having toast. You Did It: Sue West of Commodore recently dropped me a line commenting on the AmigaWorld letters drive. That’s where we coerce and cajole our readers into writing to important publications that ignore the Amiga. If you read this column regularly, you’ve heard about this tactic a million times. According to Commodore, which tracks the press, it’s working. Sue sent me letters from six publications, all singing the Amiga’s praises. About a week later, she sent me the best one of all. The July issue of Computer Graphics World had three letters about the Amiga, along with an editor’s note. Here’s a brief excerpt. “These are just a few of the comments we’ve received lately, encouraging us to include more information about the Amiga. As a result, we plan to step up our coverage of new and significant advances in Amiga technology.” Hats off to Amiga owners and letter writers George Bailey, Victor Osaka, and George Knocheland, and to Computer Graphics World for listening. Mass Market: As you may have read in Last Licks, Commodore has picked up a variety of high-end mass merchandisers to carry the A500. Some who are still smarting from the game-machine stigma are distressed. They see it as a step back. 1 don’t. I’ve talked to people who bought Amigas to play games. Now they are entering our animation contests, they are genlocking, and they are writing their own programs. I’m for anyone who is willing to sell an Amiga, and 1 congratulate Commodore on these new outlets. While Commodore is picking up outlets to sell the A500 to the home market, IBM and Tandy are getting serious with low-end DOS machines. Put an Amiga next to an Intel 8086-based wimp of a PC and see which the consumer will buy. AW Video Studio: Lou’s cave is generating excitement for reasons other than the Toaster. Sure, he’s got Tequila and Planet Lust. But we’ve also got a ton of video equipment on the way. Time-base correctors, tape decks, more genlocks, edit decks. You name it, we’re bringing it in. New Employees: Along with new equipment come new employees. We added two new jobs and hired two dynamite people to fill ’em. John Wolfskill is our new Senior Writer, Technology.

• ANIMATION AND GRAPHICS With ShowMaker you can preview your production at any time during its development. Preview from any point or from the beginning. ShowMaker will also generate story boards and cue sheets which may be printed on any Preferences supported printer. Simply drag out a segment on the Video Track - the length indiciaies the duration over which the animation or graphic will play. You can specify frame rates of up to 30 fps. Show Maker automatically determines loading time and loads the files before you need them to play, without interrupting the playback of the current animation. This means long running productions, limited by storage space, not your Amiga's memory. ShowMaker also features over 64 built-in wipes, fades, and transitions, and is compatible with most AN1M formats. ShowMaker gives you control over genlocks, videodisc players, and VCRs. Just tell ShowMaker when to cut in your video, and it will automatically seek to the correct position and fade in the genlocked signal at the right time. ** Again, simply drag out a segment - this time on the Music Track. ShowMaker supports MIDI output, MIDI files, and SMUS fonnats. ShowMaker s unique auto-sync feature* ensures that your video always remains synchronized to the music! 5 Add titles to your production with ShowMaker s built-in Video Titler. You can even run credits on top of Amiga animations and graphics, and overlay the results on video. Circle 177 on Reader Service card. M OVERLAY TITLING GOLD DISK

DURING LAST FEBRUARY, Lou Wallace and 1 flew to Paris for DevCon. We ate good food, met good people, and saw some great new technology. On the way back, we flew through Brussels to avoid a terrorist threat to U.S.-bound planes. Where were we going next? To Topeka, of course. For most people, Topeka would be a real letdown after Paris. Not for us. That’s because hidden in an unoccupied floor of a building in downtown Topeka was a renegade video studio, a Video Toaster, food, and the maniacally funny magician comedy team of Penn & Teller. This was Amiga history in the making, for on this fateful weekend, the now famous Penn & Teller Toaster video was made. Lou and I ate the food and got in the way of just about everyone. That was our contribution. And we saw the Toaster in action for real! I won’t repeat the jokes. I can’t tell you if Teller has a last name or vocal cords. But 1 will say this: We wanted a Toaster, That wish has been granted. There is now a new item lurking in the recesses of Lou Wallace's cave-like confines. A real NewTek Video Toaster is now attached to several monitors, a Super VHS deck, and a video camera that’s mounted on an electric motion-control device. This is the real deal, pal. This is why we decided it was sale to do another cover story about the Toaster. The Toaster is just the beginning. We are hearing from a wide variety of vendors about other breakthrough products. People are starting to think big. And we will cover these as they appear. But for this October issue, we’re having toast.

The Whole Truth? 1 COULDN’T AGREE more with Doug Barney regarding Apple’s and IBM’s multimedia hype. A "typical” Amiga user, interviewed in a recent IBM- magazine article on "state of the art” technology, was depressed because Amigas cannot handle the speed that 3-D rendering requires. This was the guy who signs the corporate checkbook for purchases; I guess no one told him about the 50-MHz accelerator boards. A promo for a recent TV show described "porting applications from a Mac to an IBM.” What they actually did was port data for a single application between the machines. And they had to use an external drive to do it! To top it off. The presentation had a “we thought of it first” tone. Anyone want to show them how to port pictures between the IBM and Mac using an Amiga? We’ve long had a truth-in- advertising law. . .maybe it's time for a truth-in-suggcs- tion law! Tim Kramer Chicago. IL Able Assistant MTV RECENTLY sponsored a contest to produce a music video for Madonna’s hit song, “Vogue.” 1 had the opportunity to incorporate computer graphics into someone else’s work, and our video was one of ten winners nationwide. I was able to achieve this award using die excellent Amiga products. Blane J. Perun Pittsburgh. PA What’s Greater? I KEEP COMING across the term "high-end application" and never see any follow-up on it. Why? If the broadcast industry is to embrace the Amiga, and if aspiring video people want to know more about how the Amiga works in that industry, then why not cater to both groups? Trying to find out about broadcast requirements and new technology from the broadcast side is virtually impossible, as trade magazines are not usually available on the newsstands. I could care less about games when die Amiga is so fantastic for creative work and capable of far more than home video. Ron Mauder Pittsburgh, PA IN RECENT MONTHS I have noticed a disturbing trend in AmigaWorld: the invasion of the nevcr-have-fun old men. This is apparent from the tiny number of game ads and game reviews you currently publish. It was we game enthusiasts w ho pul the Amiga on the map. It was we who allowed the Amiga to tread water long enough for the rest of the world to notice it. Now dial the Amiga is doing somewhat well, you are overrun by corporate types who want to use it as an abacus and argue about how to run Unix on a Mac emulator. I feel you are leaving the Amiga’s first and foremost users high and dry. If I don't see some changes, I, probably along with many others, am going to let my subscription lapse. Mike Czykun Denver, CO Go Promo HAVE YOU NOTICED that many personal-computing magazines have recently given the Amiga strong coverage? And don’t forget its increased visibility at major computer chains and the two clips that appeared on CNN. 1'he Amiga still needs to be promoted so that people can find information without pulling teeth. Too often I have seen interested parties dejected by a lack of knowledge about the Amiga on the part of IBM dealers, not knowing who else to contact. 1 hope everyone out there advances the cause of the Amiga reasonably (fanatics scare people) and without attacking other machines. (The Amiga is not perfect; wouldn’t you like the software choices afforded MS-DOS ow ners or the scientific graphics packages for Mac 1 Is?) For the first time in years, I am very positive about the Amiga being recognized as a "real" computer. Congratulations on your efforts, and. . . Let’s keep things rolling! Jeffrey C. Wakefield Atlanta, GA Chips and Disks IN THEIR LETTERS, Mr. Shackelford and Mr. Jordan missed the point about the custom chips (Aug., p. 8). The lack of 32-hit Paula, Denise, and Agnus chips is only the symptom of a larger problem: these chips’ lack of speed and inability to address memory. Commodore should he working on a true multiprocessor system with custom chips to rival the processor’s power. The company must fully exploit the Amiga’s architecture now, because not only are IBM and Apple getting the hang of it, but so are the deep-pocketed Sony and Fujitsu. CBM knows that catching up is hard to do. By the way, the overzealous statement that - .Commodore will be the first to produce a CD-based multimedia. . . System at an affordable price. . ."

The Amiga is instrumental in one of the movie’s most exciting scenes, wherein Robocop foils evildoers by injecting a virus into their mainframe computer. When they try to stop him, the villains encounter a digitized version of an armed and dangerous Robocop warning them to back off. Paul Sammon, the film’s com- puter-graphics supervisor, and Mike Ribble, its working artist, used an array of Amiga products to create this sequence. With Digi- View, they digitized three full-fig- ure color photos of Robocop: with his arm pointing straight up, part way down, and directly at the cam“This program underlines the tremendous potential that exists for Amiga-oriented OEMs and resellers * stated CBM President Harry Copperman.

- BGT era. By extracting Robocop's arm from the digitizations, they created six other frames to place between the originals for a more refined transition. Using PIXmate, they played in background color. Unlike most animators who strive to smooth out jagged, pixelized edges, Sammon and Ribble actually added them! According to Sammon, they had to “dirty it dow n” to make the Robocop image look as though it came from a video game. Using DeluxePaint III, the two cleaned up the frames, created a cartoon- style balloon “Bang” to pop out of Robocop’s gun, and animated the sequence. They wrote the "Back off, creeps” warning with TV*Text Professional, and displayed it with Elan Performer. Amiga Aids Testimony in Federal Court Trial A Boost for Pro Markets CHICAGO, 1L The key exhibit in a patent-infringement trial concluded this summer in Chicago’s federal court was a series of animations produced on the .Amiga. Plaintiff CM I Corp. of Oklahoma City, OK charged that Astec Industries, Inc. had infringed on CMI’s patents for asphalt recycling. To show the judge and jury just how asphalt drum mixers work and what the differences are between the five types thereof,
D. L. Richardson, an animator and Amiga enthusiast who works for CM I, created the animations on his Amiga. Once finished, he transferred his work to videotape, which was shown in the courtroom simultaneously on four 27-inch monitors. “The presentation was very successful,” said Richardson, “as evidenced by the decision in our favor." Apparently so. . . The jury awarded CM I $ 4.45 million plus interest after Finding Astec guilty as charged.
- BGT Although .Amiga-generated animation is becoming increasingly common in movie production, its role in Robocop 2 was unusual. Most producers and directors routinely send graphics and animation work to post-production houses, which often take weeks to complete it. In this film, however, the Amiga generated animations concurrent with the principal photography inexpensively and on location. At one point, when director Irvin Kershner thought one sequence was moving too slowly, Sammon and Ribble ran it back through the computer, sped it up, displayed it, and then dumped the corrected animation on Y -inch tape with a genlock in just 25 minutes! Carla Barker A Shy Maestro in Black- Tie Territory LA JOLLA, GA Pianist Kenneth Bookstein and composer Ronn Yedidia helped bridge the gap between “serious” music and non- traditional instruments in a summer concert on the west coast. Performing with Bookstein was a
2. 5-megabyte, 68010-equipped A1000, which was outstanding in heading up a full electronic orchestral accompaniment. Composer Yedidia conducted the orchestra of sample players, synthesizers, and mixers from off stage, using the Amiga to change their sound levels. “We could have programmed the computer to mix the sound, but the accoustics in each auditorium are so different 1 needed someone there with me,” Bookstein said. According to the performer, this event marked the first time a large-scale symphonic piece had been performed using electronic instruments. Although computer- based music is generally accepted in commercial- and pop-music forums, Yedidia’s Concerto for Piano and Electronic Instruments represents something previously unheard of, explained Bookstein. Because it is so difficult to convince a professional symphony to perform new work, electronics allows a composer to have his piece played and heard perhaps resulting in attention and a traditional performance: “It’s a way of breaking through." Amiga music connoisseurs in the New York City area can catch Bookstein and Yedidia in a similar performance sometime later on this spring.

Ludwick FROM AUTO REPAIR to legal practice, billing by the hour is the rule, but until now, only inanual-entry time cards or billing diaries were suitable For such businesses. . .at least For those relying on the Amiga. Brown-Wagh’s Service Industry Accounting (SIA) is the first Amiga accounting program oriented toward businesses where labor not goods is the primary billing item. Books Worth Reading Like its cousin, Easylx*dgers (a goods- oriented accounting package also by Bmwn-Wagh), SIA Features a graphic interlace that presents the program in five sections: The Purchase Book (accounts payable), Sales Book (receivables), Ledger Book (general ledger), Inventory Book (stock control), and Job Cards ' (projects in progress). These books are organized in the same way most service businesses set up such manual entry books or files, and each contains pages that you can flip through by using the mouse. The Sales Book asks you to enter all the necessary details of each client vou
* J serve: company name, mailing address, contact, phone number, credit limit, sales terms, sales-tax situation, and pricing structure. Because you can Fully customize each customer file, the program is extremely flexible. You can place customers on succeeding pages in alphabetical or any other order. Tabs fin* each j two-page spread make finding any customer a snap. D'lie Purchase Book, where creditor and supplier information is recorded, is organized similarly. You should get your accountant’s help to set up the Ledger Book, which contains all the Fiscal and account information that reflects your business’s financial condition. SIA is the best accounting package available for this type of business. It helps you control inventory and, if you keep it updated, ii lets you see what’s happening 011 011 a day-to-day basis. You can also use it for point-of-sale to generate invoices, and it lets you record invoices and change them if needed. Wc haven’t found any bugs in SIA. The only thing I don’t like and tliis, as with double-entry accounting, is intrinsic to the process is that it is not easy to correct mistakes. Also, I would tike to see the developer include a payroll system. Lance Hutchinson North field, MN Parts and supplies are logged in the Inventory Book. Here you can maintain not only the cost of these items, but percentage mark-ups and fixed selling prices as well. An Hour Past Figures In service businesses, billable work is project oriented, and income is related to time spent and costs incurred. Thus, the Job Card file, which takes the place of the manually generated job ticket or work order, sets the direction for the entire SIA package. To set up a project in SIA, you open a job file, assign it a number and a title, describe it in detail, and assign it to a customer from the Sales Book. From that point on, you use the card to record hours, expenses, outside purchases, and everything else related to that job’s billing. Once you complete a project, you can do the invoicing directly from the Job Card file. SIA provides printing functions for both pre-printed invoice forms and blank paper. It can print detailed invoices that list every hour and all ma* j terials, or those that present only cumulative totals. In addition, it can automatically mark up all purchases and hours, Figure the sales tax, and post those totals to both the Sales Book and the General Ledger! Without getting into bookkeeping practices and procedures, suffice it to say that once properly set up, SIA is about as automatic and transparent a bookkeeping system as the 11 on-CPA is likely to find. You can implement an employee roster that holds both a net (salary, hourly, or commission) and a billable hourly rate for each person. In the job-description file, which is automatically configured when you start up SIA, job functions are assigned to a numbered table. (In an ad agency, for example, these functions might be labeled copywriting, art direction, typesetting, account service, meetings, new business, and so on.) You can use these job-fu net ion codes when entering employee hours to a job Card, and thus determine not only how many hours each employee is billing, but how their time is being spent and which areas are most time intensive. I bis setup also lets you print a complete breakdown of time spent to give to customers. Credits Bmwn-Wagh promotes SIA not as a conventional accounting program, but as a business-managcmcnt system. For once, the developer’s claim is not hyperbole. It is not only accurate, but perhaps even modest! SIA is extremely powerful and intuitive, and information transfer from book to book is, in most cases, completely automatic. Write an invoice from a completed job Card, and SIA updates all other affected books and accounts with one puzzling exception: While you can post outside purchases to Job Cards, you must also post them to the accounts- payable book manually. SIA provides an incredible number of management reports (39 by my count), trs Mnernsm A ft Hjir Mvtrlmnj Btsigt s icounts Cui toner M15 Sitt tiir Hexl IrasMtiMs: Jw-HI Jx-il-M JvlHt C a. 11255 nt.

- mi.?* &5.4J YAM 1IM. IS r I OI K T CRM Sales are up at least on the screen. Lata tni SIA is much more handy than anything else we've seen. If you keep up with the program, you can pull a balance sheet or expense report quickly and easily at any time. It is a bugger to set up not because there is anything wrong with the program, but because you must know accounting. With accounting software, you cannot make changes to books as you can with a database. But the program gives you an audit trail, and if you understand debits and credits, it’s very, very good. I wish you could make pricing changes on the fly; as it is, once you have begun an automated invoicing or job-costing process, you are stuck with the price that’s in the program. The dump-to-spreadshect feature is very nice. It lets you select any fields for import into Superbase, MaxiPlan, or Lotus 1-2-3. Getting around in the program is easy, and you never have to use account numbers, which is pretty neat. I hope Brown-Wagh updates the program to provide more of the features available on the IBM version. Tim Hehr NorthfM, MN HKHS Net tf>3 including accounts receivable, customer mailing labels, staff analysis by job function, and all the usual balance sheets, income statements, and profit-and-loss statements. So far, I have yet to need information that SIA can’t provide in just seconds. Fhe manual is exemplary. Its tutorial section does a good job of introducing you to various features and providing a basic understanding of accounting principles. You’ll spend a week or two in gathering and entering all the information required, but once this initial phase is accomplished, SIA will give you more information, and therefore more control over your business, than you’ve ever had before. Debits With mediocre programs, only major er- rors or problems get a reviewer’s attention. But with truly excellent packages of which SIA is one the small problems and inconsistencies seem more intolerable than they really are. On boot-up, SIA requires you to type in the date and to click on directory listings to define a path to its data files. The program should be able to read the system date and should provide a definable default path that’s kept as a permanent look-up file. Then, because SIA often requires you to move from keyboard to mouse and back again when entering data, the process takes more time than it should. The graphic approach to all the program’s aspects is great, but I wish there were a way to select gadgets (“radio buttons”) and boxes from the keyboard. Also, as good as SIA’s printing facility is, it needs more flexibility. For instance, i I prefer printing invoices on my letterhead, but SI A provides no option for this or any other customization. I would also like to see a facility that accepts purchase-order numbers and then prevents you from closing that job until it can account for all purchase orders with invoices received. None of SIA’s debits are even close to being fatal. They are simply minor blemishes and places for improvement. With today’s advanced peripherals, external expansion boxes and applications Amiga didn’t dream of a few years ago, it’s easy to overload the standard Amiga 500 power supply. That’s why Applied Engineering now offers a heavy duty version. AE’s heavy duty 100-watt power supply nearly triples your Amiga 500’s native 35-watt power output. 100 watts is enough power to free you from having to disable an external disk drive to conserve power. Expansion cards, disk drives, accelerators, clock cards, modems, printer interfaces and the base computer itself all compete for the same power output. Expect to crank all up at once, and .you can find yourself on the short end of the stick. AE’s new power supply runs at 110 220V +15% to accommodate European standards. Output is +5V (13A), +12V (2A), -I2V (1A). Dual, tlWQ.AEXesLUKb, luc Abritfusmetivd. Cr-.e' sul'na ro dnw u:ihcit! Mike Unuvlatkipmduil names arc nxi&rul tm>kr,wtevfdxir n kxtuetrikrs You will need your accountant’s help and advice in setting up the program, and there will certainly be questions along the way that the manual is not equipped to answer. Finally, SIA requires daily massaging to live up to its full potential. But, while I rarely make blanket recommendations about software, here goes: Service Industry Accounting is one program every service business should have.

By Steve Quinzi TIGER CUB, DR. Ts new entry-level MIDI package that's billed as “the music program for the rest of us,” features a 12-track sequencer, an easy-to-use graphic editor, and a budget price. It also includes QuickScore, a simple transcription program that can display and print your sequences in standard musical notation. Tiger Cub comes with two disks: the program disk containing the Cub and QuickScore programs, and an auxiliary disk with sequence examples and sampled sounds. Tiger Cub itself is copyprotected with the key-disk method, but QuickScore, which works only with Tiger Cub, is not. Those scraping by with 512K are out of luck with this program it will not run with less than a meg of RAM. Leaving From 12 Tracks Cub’s Tape Recorder screen is laid out much like the Track-mode Record screen of Dr. T’s Keyboard Controlled Sequencer (KCS). Instead of KCS’s 48 tracks, however, Cub has 12. These tracks are arranged in rows, each with a box containing the track’s name, MIDI channel assignment, instrument (internal Amiga sound or specified external MIDI source), and space for comments. There are also buttons to solo, mute, or assign each track to a group. The control panel provides the familiar transport controls: play, record, fast forward, rewind, pause, and stop. There is also a measure beat step counter, a real-time counter, a visual metronome, and a tempo slider with an adjustable range of 20 to 600 beats per minute.

It doesn’t even mention the demos on disk, for example, and I had to play around with the program to find out that it provides terrific internal sounds, (This means that you can make music even if you don’t have a keyboard but it’s not documented!) Other parts are just plain baffling. But while this makes Tiger Cub hard to use, the program is still good for beginners. It is expandable through Dr. T’s Multi-Program Environment, and it is well worth the money. Clinton Wheatley Cocoa, FL keyboard starts the sequencer. (I feel there are too many options for starting the sequencer and wish that the last two could be disabled.) With Auto Record enabled, the sequencer loops around the section, allowing you to record track after track without stopping. With each repeat of the loop, MIDI data is directed to the next open track. Without it, the sequencer stops recording after one pass, but continues in a play loop until you stop it. Drawing up Changes Click the Edit button on the control panel, and you are transported to Tiger Cub’s graphic editing screen. Here tracks are displayed in piano-roll format, and notes are represented by bars on a graph, with the vertical position of the bars indicating pitch, and the horizontal position showing placement in time. Clicking on the track button at the top of the screen causes a different track to show on the graph. A keyboard is at the left side of the screen, and horizontal lines extend from each C note, so you can easily distinguish the octaves. At normal magnification, the vertical lines crossing the graph represent one measure (eight measures of 4 4 displayed at a time), but by zooming in or out, you can get as fine as 16th notes (2‘ 2 beats displayed), or as coarse as 17 measures per line. When you move the cursor within the graph, a display window reports its location in time and pitch. This is most useful for editing. You can add notes to the graph by clicking the Note Draw icon and placing them with the mouse. The length of the bar represents note duration, while its vertical stem represents velocity. With the Edit Pitch, Edit Velocity, Edit Duration, Move Note, or Erase icons, you can use the mouse to alter notes. Global editing functions are available in the Edit menu. To select something to edit, choose either the Select or Horizontal Range icons. The former requires you to click on individual notes or draw a box around a group of notes; editing then affects only the selected note events. With the latter, you highlight an area of the graph; editing then affects all notes, controllers, and so on within that range. The editing features that are available with Select are Cut, Copy and Paste, Pitch (transpose), Velocity (change by a given amount, set all equal, or scale), Time Reverse (which flips the selected area and plays it backward), Move (which offsets the selected group of notes a given number of steps), and Split (which copies the group to another track). In addition to the usual quantize features, Quantize Selected offers a variable swing factor, which can allocate more time to the downbeat than the upbeat in consecutive eighth notes. A bug in the quantize function causes an offset in triplet quantization, so if, for example, you want to quantize to quarter-note triplets, you must select eighth-note triplets. (Dr. T’s knows of this problem and promises to repair it in the next program update.) You can also apply Pitch, Velocity, and Time Reverse to events that are selected with Horizontal Range. Repeat, which can be used with both selection methods, repeats a selected group of events or area of time at given intervals.

By Lou Wallace YOU CANT MAKE an omelette without breaking some eggs and maybe you can’t make perfect “toast” without burning a few slices of bread first, either. For two years the Amiga community has been eagerly awaiting NewTek's Video Toaster, and some people have become very frustrated justifiably during that time. While Toaster units are not shipping to the general public as of this writing, it appears they will soon be on their way. And, quite honestly, I believe that it is going to be well worth the wait. Editor's Note: As of this writing, no Video Toaster units have been shipped to customers. As such, this is not a review but only a 'hands-on'' preview of the product. XewTek officials say that the first units for sale will ship in early September although they advise that it may take sei’eral months before the company can fill all current orders for the product. AmigaWorld will be reporting a full evaluation of the machine after it ships. How do I know? Well, in early July AmigaWorld received one of the first Toasters to leave Topeka without a legion of security guards. Ever since the preproduction unit arrived complete with its impressive array of bundled software our offices have been the site of more video activity than a 1 lolly wood set. While this article is only a preview, we feel that we have had enough independent, first-hand experience with the machine to offer solid preliminary findings to the many readers who have been tiam- oring for information about a very significant piece of technology. Few Amiga products have been the subject of as much speculation and rumor, and we think you may be quite surprised with just what is about to emerge from those Kansas cornfields. Just What Is a Video Toaster, Anyway? A simple answer to that question is not easy, because the foaster does many different things. The Toaster essentially is a video switcher a device that allows the user to change from one video source to another. Sometimes the change is very abrupt (a cut), where you are simply switching instantly from one to the other. At other times more complex changes -or transitions are required; these are generally referred to as digital effects. When the Toaster was in its early stages of development, the original concept was simply to produce a low-cost digital-effects device specifically, a realtime video digitizer that would manipulate digitized images under software control so that the transformed images could then be encoded into a broad- cast-quality video signal. This is what the general public has been expecting, and it won’t be disapTour pointed, because the Video Toaster is a very powerful digital-effects device, delivering a broadcast-quality NTSC video signal that meets the requirements for RS-170A ratings. There is, however, a lot more to the Toaster in hardware and software than most people expected. This look at the Toaster’s features will give you a clearer idea of what it is and what it can do. The Toasters basic hardware features consist of a production switcher, a DVE (Digital Video Effects) generator, a frame grabber, a character generator (CG), and two frame buffers. The software side is equally extensive and impressive, and holds several unexpected surprises, as you will see in just a moment. The main Toaster software program generates the on-screen control panels that allow you to access all parts of the Toaster’s hardware. (See the sidebar "Toaster Tour" for a more detailed description of Video Toaster features.) In addition, there is a remarkable group of programs bundled with the regular Toaster package, including: Toaster Plaint, a 24-bit paint program that allows you to draw and paint in the 16-million-color frame buffers; LightWave 3D, an incredible 3-D ten- HERE IS A quick rundown of some of the more important Video Toaster features. Digital Video Effects The top half of the main Toaster screen (see Figure 2) is devoted to four banks of digital video effects (DVEs). Only one is displayed at a time, but you can switch among them simply by pressing one of the DVE bank buttons labeled A-D. Each bank has 32 effects, ranging from cuts to wipes and transitions all of which arc available at any given time. This initial set of 128 is just the beginning, however, because, depending on how you have set the other features, you can create hundreds of other effects. To give you an idea of the tremendous variety of wipes and transitions, a short list would include; pushes, blinds, fades, zooms, pixelization, snow, spins, trails, and slides plus quite a number that defy easy description. In the lower-right part of the screen, there is a software version of the switcher’s T-bar, which can be controlled manually with the mouse or set to one of three speeds for automatic image switching. There are also buttons for freezing (grabbing) the current image into the frame buffers. In addition, you’ll find gadgets for loading (and saving) 24-bit images from disk into either of the two buffers, which you can then use as a video source for the DVEs. The significance of the Toaster’s ability to use framestores for effects should not be minimized, because if the effects you need can be made from still images, you will not need a time-base corrector after all. By generating the images via the onboard frame grabber, LightWave 3D, or ToasterPaint, and loading them into the framestores, you can still make use of almost all the available effects. For example, perhaps one of your video sources is from live video and the other is a framestore created with LightWave 3D. You can perform an effect, a tumble, say, from the framestore out over the live signal while recording the output. Video Source Selectors Genlock While not one of the major features, the Toaster’s built-in genlock should not be overlooked. It does differ somewhat from the genlocks used in most Amigas because it does not display the combined image on your RGB monitor. Instead, it merely encodes the signals and sends them out as a composite-video signal, which can then be recorded in the normal manner. (This is a standard technique for using genlocks with most nonAmiga computers.) Dual Frame Buffers Because the Toaster’s standard configuration includes two megabytes of RAM, it can support two complete frame buffers on board. Besides DVE effects, these can be used for loading disk-based images, for grabbing images from incoming video, as RAM for the supplied 24-bit paint program, and as a display device for the LightWave 3D animation program. Frame Grabber At the click of a mouse button, you can grab an incoming image in a full 16 million colors. The result is stored in memory, where it can be saved to disk. Through image-processing routines contained in the software, you can ensure that any motion present in the frame will be removed. Character Generator The CG is a full-featured, professional package capable of generating up to 100 pages of text using any of the 25 supplied fonts. You can use any of the 16 million colors for the fonts, and you can make ever)' line on a page a different color with a different font if you wish. There is even a special “rainbow” font that exhibits a beautiful color gradation. The CG offers a wide variety of shadowing styles, including a special transparent shadow mode. You can display each page of text using either crawls or scrolling effects that are very smooth and capable of being displayed up to 60 frames per second. Color Effects You can access another full set of effects through the chroma-effects menu (see Figure 1), which provides you with enormous control over on-screen color. New- Tek indicates that such features as generating negatives and turning color images into monochrome ones are also possible. Other impressive effects noted in this area include posterization and so- larization (the latter effect is shown in Figure 1). Keys Still another source of very powerful effects involves the use of keys. A key is a mask that determines what is displayed and what is transparent. (The transparent area could be blank or it could show another video source.) I have not used this feature, but according to NewTek the Toaster can be software-configured to use a wide variety of key masks including even animated keys! Incorporating these key effects with some of the other DVEs provides an almost unlimited supply of effects, ? LW AmigalVorld 23 dering and animation package by Alan Hastings; and LightWave Modeler* a 3-D object-design program for creating the objects you use in LightWave. (See the sidebar “Bundles of Pure Joy” for more on the Toaster’s additional software.) Thrown into the bargain is an assortment of software accessories, including a wide variety of fonts for t he character generator and an even larger number of predesigned 3-D objects for LightWave (both supplied on disk in a package called the Phone Book). Physically, the Toaster is a two-tiered board that J J plugs into the Amiga 2000’s video slot. (At the time this article was written, it did not work properly in the A3000, but according to Newtek an A3000 board will be available after production of the current Toaster is ramped up to full speed.) In the rear, it has four separate composite-video inputs and two composite outputs. All connections are made via BNC (British Nut Connector) connectors. The Toaster is a full-length board, reaching all the wav from the rear of the A2000 to about one inch from the front case. It uses every bit of the space available on the video-slot side of the computer. For those users of Micro Way’s flicker Fixer, which also resides in the A2000’s video slot, there is no need to despair. Micro Way now offers the DEB 2000, which is a device that creates a new slot for the flickcrFixer on the PC-slot side of the Amiga and frees up the video slot for other devices, including the Toaster. Because the system in which 1 installed the Toaster used a flickerFixer, I installed the DEB 2000; both it and (lie Toaster worked just fine. So, What Do I Need To Start Toasting? Requirements for using the Toaster vary to some degree, but the basic system should be at least an A2000 or A2500 with 3MB of RAM and a hard disk. More memory is useful, and the larger the storage capacity of the hard disk, the better, because the 16- million-color framestore images are over TOOK each and tend to eat up a lot of storage space on your disk. In addition, you must have a Super Agnus chip, as the Toaster software requires more than 512K of chip RAM. You also need at least one composite monitor, although it is better if you have two composite display undies of Pure joy ONE OF THE biggest surprises concerning the Toaster is the software bundled with it. While it has been common knowledge that NewTek was developing a 24-bit paint program and a 3-D animation package, few people knew that this software was to lie included at no extra charge with every Video Toaster. 24-Bit Painting ToasterPaint is a full-featured 24-bit paint program. The version we received used the Digi-Paint 3 interface, but we were told the final package will contain some design modifications that will give the program its own unique look and feel. The program makes full use of the 768x480 overscan display in 16 million colors (24 bits per pixel) generated by the Toaster. Buffer, it works quite well and really does The program works in a somewhat indirect way. The interface resides on the Amiga’s display, and all rendering is done on screen in HAM mode. The 768x480 screen itself is a large virtual canvas. You scroll around it by moving the mouse, and it automatically tracks your movement in much the same way that virtual screens do under Workbench 2.0. Painting occurs on the HAM display, although all the information is maintained internally as 24-bit data. When you want to see the image in its full 24-bit glory, simply click a button on the interface to send the image to one of the Toaster’s frame buffers so that il can be displayed on the composite monitor. While not quite as satisfying as drawing directly into the 3-D Rendering As an avid 3-D modeler, I have to admit that my favorite piece of Toaster software is LightWave 3D. Having used just about every 3-1) rendering package on the Amiga market, I can truthfully say that LightWave absolutely blows away everything else in its class. LightWave 3D is not a ray-tracing pro- sources. The Amiga’s own RGB display is used for the software control panel, while the composite monitors show the two active video sources. Once you install the hardware and load the Toaster software, you are presented with the main Toaster interlace screen = see Figure 2). Because the Toaster takes over the machine completely, you cannot switch to other Amiga software (although when you exit the Toaster program, it does return you to Workbench). From within the Toaster interface, however, you have easy and direct access to the character generator. Toaster Plaint, and LightWave programs. When you exit these, you are returned to the main Toaster screen. Alter satisfying the Toaster’s Amiga requirements, you then need to consider what video hardware you need. If all you want to do is grab live images from a single video source, such as a camcorder or laserdisc player, simply connect it to Toaster input 1 and start frame-grabbing images. You can then edit these 16-millioii-color pictures with the ToasterPaint graphics program. If your intention is to feed more than one video gram; instead, it uses Phong shading to generate most of its images. The main advantage of Phong shading over ray tracing is speed. Rendering times in the latter, as you may have experienced, are unbearably long. LightWave, however, does make use of some ray-tracing techniques in its most realistic shadow-generating mode which, of course, slows things down considerably. The scene editor is a dream come true. You use only one window for viewing, and the scene is depicted in a full wireframe 3-D perspective within it (see Figure 3). If you want to translate (move) or rotate the scene or any of its components, simply move the mouse. Every action is fast and fluid, and most importantly, the action is in real time. Literally within minutes, I was able to create a fairly complex scene (see Figure 4) and that was before I had even read the manual! Caligari (Octree) is the only package that comes close to LightWave in ease of use. You move the camera and the various light sources in the same easy fashion as the objects. As an added touch, the lamps and cameras are fully visible in the scene; 7 not surprisingly, they actually look like lamps and cameras. Although a fairly wide assortment of textures is supplied, you can also wrap an IFF image to the surface of an object or use it as a background. You can specify how it will be wrapped, selecting planar, spherical, or cylindrical. A number of VideoScape textures, such as marble and wood, are also available. Other options you can use to affect the surface of objects include adding fractal noise, varying the frequency of the texture patterns, and specifying how light striking the object will be treated (diffuse, specular, gloss, transparency, bump mapping, or by adding fog in the air). You can even specify a reflection map, which reflects neighboring objects or IFF images. Full-Blown Animating LightWave 3D is not just a rendering program; it’s also a full-featured animation package. It uses the key-frame approach, which should be familiar to users of most current Amiga 3-D animation programs. In key animation, you create a scene and designate it as a key frame. Skipping ahead a few frames, you make changes to the scene and specify the new scene as another key frame, and so on. The computer then creates all the frames in between the key frames. The result is usually a smooth animation that did not take hundreds of hours to create. You can use as many key frames as needed to achieve your desired results. If you plan on creating animations using the full 24-bit, 16-million-color capability the Toaster provides, you will need additional hardware in the form of a transport controller and a video-tape deck that offers single-frame accuracy. (See the sidebar “Toaster Studio Source Guide” on p. 28 for some manufacturers of transport controllers.) This requirement would, of course, hold for any 24-bit animation package, not just LightWave 3D. ? LW come as a shock for the average Amiga user who was hoping to get a Video Toaster and plug in a couple of consumer VCRs. The reasons for needing a TBC (price range approximately S1500-S8000) are technical, having to do with the quality of the incoming video signals. Refer to the sidebar “Getting in Sync: TBCs” for a more detailed description. Toaster Wrap As you have seen from this quick preview and its sidebars, there is much more to the Video Toaster than most of us expected. In this one plug-in card, we find several professional video-production devices, which if purchased separately would cost many limes more than the Toaster's SI595 price. In addition, the 24-bit paint program and 3-D modeling and animation software included in the package are in themselves worth hundreds of dollars. So instead of just a single-solution product, we now have one package that offers solutions for the Amiga video professional, the artist and the animator. 1 would not he surprised if many Amiga owners rushed out to get a Toaster, and there may be lots of people who will buy an .Amiga just so they can use the Toaster! The Video Toaster $ 1595 NewTek 215 SE 8th St. Topeka, KS 66603 913 354-1146 800 843-8934 ? IN THEORY, THE video signals coming into the Video Toaster should consist of
59. 94 images, or frames, per second. In practice, however, the video frame rate of incoming signals is somewhat different, or out of sync, with this theoretical requirement. There are two different types of sync horizontal and vertical that are associated with each frame of video. (Think of sync, physically, as a signal pulse. In the case of horizontal sync, this pulse instructs the electron gun in the monitor to jump to the beginning of the next raster line at precisely the end of the previous one. With vertical syncs, which indicate the end of the current frame, the pulse instructs the electron gun to jump to the top left of the screen.) If the incoming signal is out of sync in either or both cases, the effect will be some degree of generalized distortion of the video image. In the case of a camcorder sending live video, sync is not a real problem, because the Toaster is able to correctly sync itself to that single source. When you add a second source, however, even if it too is live video from another camera, the Toaster is able to sync properly to only one of them. The result is that the two signals get out of phase; to effectively perform any of the digital video effects using external video sources, the Toaster requires both sources to be in sync. When you start supplying video from a tape source, sync becomes an even greater problem because of the mechanical nature of playing a tape as opposed to a purely electronic signal from live video. In practice, the Toaster is not able to sync directly to even one tape source, let alone two. (While video from tape requires that you use a time-base corrector [TBC] with the Toaster, a single laserdisc signal does not. Evidently, the signal from the laser-disc player is not as far out of sync as that from the tape. If you plan on using more than one input, however, a TBC is still required even if both signals come from laser discs.) As mentioned in the main article, all of this is old news to video professionals, who worked out the TBC solution long ago. The TBC takes two incoming video signals and syncs them together. (That does* not mean that the two images are combined, merely that they are now both in sync with each other.) By connecting the two incoming video signals into a TBC, which then passes them on through to the Toaster, you are able to cleanly process the two images. The good news in all of this is that TBC prices have steadily fallen of late and seem likely to continue to do so. .Another significant development is that many camcorder and tape-deck manufacturers are now including TBCs as standard features on their equipment. (For a list of TBC manufacturers, see the sidebar “Toaster Studio Source Guide.”) ?

Some reasonably priced camcorders tested by the company include: Sony CCD-G1 (S750) JVC TK-880U(L) ($ 1240) Panasonic WV-D5100 (SI500) There seems to be a trend among video-gear manufacturers to add built-in time-base correctors (TBCs) to their equipment, which could be good news for Toaster users. Here are a few examples: Sony CCD-V5000 Hi-Band 8 Camcorder (S2700) Hitachi VL-S1G0 Portable S-VHS Recorder ($ 3990) Keep in mind that not all systems with built-in TBCs will work. If in doubt, contact NewTek and ask about the specific model you are considering. If you need a transport controller for single-frame recording of animations, make sure it's Amiga-compatible.

• 880K Capacity l_access j ol memory engineering. Introducing the art of memory engineering. With the Amiga’s practically unlimited potential, often the only barrier to greater productivity is a lack of memory. Adding expansion memory to your computer opens doors to new capabilities. But knowing how much to add and how to add it can be a real headache. For Amiga 2000s, 2500s and 3000s. Applied Engineering’s new RamWorks 2000™ (above, at right) is the definitive memory expansion solution. The board was engineered to incorporate 256K x 4 dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chips. That's a significant improvement over chips used on other boards because it gives you growth-path choices. You can add memory in large increments or smaller, more affordable increments of 512K at a time. And you can add these small increments all the way up to 8 MEGs. Ease of use is also important Many memory expansion hoards require the user to configure tiny switches or jumpers in a trial and error fashion to suit their particular hardware. RamWorks 2000 has an intuitive on-board feature that automatically configures your setup making it much easier to install and upgrade. No switches, no jumpers just add memory and go. We also designed Ram Works 2000 to be fully compatible with the A3000, so if you decide at some future date to upgrade your computer, you can switch the card over. Ram Works 2000 carries a five year warranty. Call for current pricing. For Amiga 500s with 512K, we designed the RamWorks 500™ (above, at left). Combining the functions of an internal 512K memory card and clock card, RamWorks 500 boosts the A500’s available RAM to 1 MEG. We incorporate 256K x 1 DRAM chips to make RamWorks 500 fully compatible with ALL A500 hardware and software, including pre-1989 machines. The built-in clock function automatically time and date stamps your files and a graphical diagnostic program checks for bad or improperly seated chips. Five year warranty. With 512K installed $ 79. For the new A500 Professional with 1 MEG built-in, Applied Engineering designed Timemaster 500™ (above, top). An easy way to add dock functions to your files, Timemaster 500 quickly attaches to the A500-P's expansion slot. Your files are then automatically time and date stamped for easy reference. Five year warranty. $ 49. For ten years, Applied Engineering has forged a reputation for exciting and innovative peripherals.

Prices subject to change without notice Brand and product names are registered trademarks of their respective holders The Studio Builder’s EFERENCE GUIDF Looking for video equipment but cant sort out all those black boxes? Our roundup of hardware charts the differences. AS MUCH .AS you might wish, the Amiga cannot fill all your desktop-video needs. Sure, your Amiga is great for producing titles, splashy special effects, stereo audio, and animation, but it cannot shoot your video or record a finished tape. To help you decide what equipment you need at the other end of the video cable, 1 assembled the following buyer’s guide. Although inexpensive by professional standards, industrial VCRs, cameras, still video, laser discs, switchers, and editing controllers are priced way beyond the means of even the most resourceful video- phile, so I have limited my coverage to high-end consumer equipment. Regrettably, I do not have enough space to include important, but secondary, items such as audio-mixing consoles, lights, software, and .Amiga-specific add-ons (genlocks). Pick and choose freely among the suggested units, but above all remember: Trite as it sounds, you get what you pay for. Among other things, this means avoiding the purchase of features you do not need. You will probably be able to add them later, when you need them, and for less money. ?

y. Jr, r U- ‘1*1 mCA>9 tN» Camcorders Obviously, the master videotaped image is the most important element of the desktop-video production. Because creating the finished tape involves copying your original footage (four generations is not unusual) and picture quality degrades with each new copy, you must start with the best image possible. Put your pennies into the picture, and be sure to try before you buy. Quality is hard to evaluate from spec sheets; trust your eyes instead. At long last, manufacturers are moving away from useless bells and whistles and toward truly helpful features. Electronic image stabilizers attempt to minimize hand-held camera shake. Digital zoom, if you don’t push it too far, can effectively extend your camera’s optical reach, although you will eventually see the pixels. A blur-reducing digital focal shutter conies in handy for taping high-speed events. Save yourself controller costs by choosing a unit with a synchro-editing feature, which turns your edit deck into an edit controller for your playback deck, allowing you to do assemble edits. .Although titling may seem superfluous because of readily available Amiga titling software, it is useful as an electronic slate to identify your scenes at the shooting site.

3) 893-6938 464 Kalamath Stra VCRs Judging by this category's size, you might think every consumer-elec- tronics company makes at least one VCR. You would be wrong; VCRs are produced at only a handful of factories, so buying according to brand name may only lead to paying more than need be. (See the sidebar “Primary Manufacturers” for more details.) To ensure the best video quality, choose an SVHS or Hi-8 format deck. (For a further discussion of tape formats, see “Cutting the Red Tape," p. 43, AmigaWorld 1990 Video 8c Animation Special Issue.) Insist on flying erase heads for glitch-free edits. If you want to do MTV-style videos, get a deck that can record video over audio, so you can synchronize video cuts to the music. Some of the newer decks even include inexpensive, eight-bit time-base correctors that enable you to fade between two VCRs. Also, a unit with a jog wheel makes single-frame digitizing of live video a snap. Mfr Model Price Format Features Comments F S J V D S I T E F O E N B H A G D B D S C U U I R B F T T Hitachi VT-F430A

For good reason, too; they are identical machines! This is more than a matter of fashion and fads in design. A small number of manufacturers produce all the VCRs and camcorders sold around the world. This fact should affect your purchase decisions, for identical models sold under different brands can vary widely in price. Use the “Equipment Clones" chart when you suspect that there is more than one version of the unit you plan to buy. Carefully compare features; some manufacturers do include special functions to set their models apart from the clones. Minolta and Pentax, for example, have good reputations for their 35mm cameras and might include custom optics 011 their otherwise identical camcorders. ?

Until then (unless you have 12 very long arms), a video mixer is essential. It puts special effects, fades, dissolves, audio mixing, and edit control on a single console. Although most of these low-cost units do not have anywhere near the power of professional production switchers, they still can make your hours in the studio much easier. For example, even though the Amiga can emulate wipes and fades with software, it is usually much faster to use a switcher for the job such are the realities of production.

If you need only static shots of your subject, would you rather carry a small, light still-video camera or lug a bulky camcorder? The picture quality is as good as still frames from standard VHS or 8min videotape, even though these units use two-inch floppy disks instead of videotape. Because the output is NTSC, the equipment integrates easily with your other video gear. Look for camera quality to improve dramatically in the near future with the addition of higher-resolution CCDs and full-frame recording modes. (Current consumer models record only one of the two fields that make up a video frame.)

While it won’t produce fancy effects, an editor will save you hours of fiddling trying to synchronize your edit and playback decks. There are so few programs that turn your Amiga into an edit controller. Until more arrive, you should consider resorting to a dedicated unit. Before buying, be aware of a few limitations: Be sure the controller works with your VCRs. For example, you can't use the Sony controller with a Panasonic industrial deck. Most of these low-cost units control the tape by emulating the remote control, so they are not very accurate. Edit precision ranges from a few frames to two or three seconds.

Introducing the ultimate driving machine, the AE HD (high density) Drive, Applied Engineering’s new high density 3.5 drive (above, at right). The first and only high density drive for the Amiga, it runs circles around the competition. The FCC certified design supports both standard 880K and 1.52 MEG 3.5" disks. The new AE standard device controls both the high density mode and built-in electronic disk ejection. For running the new Amiga UNIX, the AE standard 1.52 MEG format is a virtual must.
1. 52 MEG capacity means you can stop playing diskette roulette. Simply store your large 2-disk application programs on one, high density disk and forget about fumbling for “sets” of disks. And storing files just became twice as easy too, because you'll only need half the number of disks. We also added performance features like an exclusive 2-way LED indicator that displays green for reading, red for writing. And a smooth, quiet electronic disk ejection to replace the clunky “punch” of other drive’s ejectors. Since our electronic ejection is tied to the write enable function, you can no longer accidently trash a disk by inadvertently pushing the eject button while the drive is writing. Our ejector waits until the drive completes the write and then auto-ejects the disk. Beauty AND brains. Aesthetically, the AE HD Drive is everv bit as handsome as J it is intelligent. We designed a high-impact ABS plastic case to protect the top quality SONY mechanism inside. For driving on a budget, we’ve designed a quick, quiet 880K standard 3.5” drive as well (above, at left). Incorporating a reliably quiet and trouble-free design, the AE 880K Drive™ sports a tough aluminum case, custom molded cable and an on off disable switch. Both drives are compatible with all Amiga computers and feature complete daisy-chain capacity (from AE to another drive or vice-versa), MS-DOS compatibility, pass through connectors. FCC certified designs and full one-year warranties. AE High Density 3-5 Drive $ 239 AE880K Drive ... For ten years. AE has forged a reputation for exciting and innovative peripherals. Built to our own exacting standards of quality and reliability, our products are backed by the best warranties and the best technical support in the business. Order today!

He was referred to a vocational rehabilitation counselor to help him get started in a new' line of work. Miller had been videotaping weddings and school activities for friends as a paying hobby, so his counselor suggested learning video production. The training would have taken at least 14 months that was too lone. W Then they discovered Video Data Services, a videotaping service that, for $ 13,950. Provided its franchisees with all the training, equipment, and marketing assistance needed to start a video photography and tape-transfer business specializing in w'eddings. Product demonstrations, sales demonstrations, legal depositions, conventions. And computer graphics. After researching the company thoroughly, the counselor recommended that the county buy the franchise for Miller as part of his compensation. Video Data Serv ices offered Miller an opportunity to enter a field with explosive growth. Videotaping and transfer services commonly gross six figures a year and Video Data Services claims that anyone following its procedures full-time should be able to reach that income level within two years. "It’s ail up to you,” says Miller. “If you follow the program, you should be able to do it. This is my second year, and it is already a fantastic one. I should reach the S100.000 mark by the fourth quarter of 1989. ”1 started this business full-time from day one,” says Miller. “I like to tell my law- enforcement friends that 1 work only half days now that I’m my own boss. They turn green until I explain what I mean 8 a.m. to 8 p.m..” However, long hours are not a requirement, according to Miller. “A lot of affiliates start part-time until they feel secure. The company is great about that. They hold your hand every step of the way. Teaching you marketing methods and giving you promotional materials.” There are several specialized areas to go into, and Video Data Services teaches you to approach target markets one at a time until you know' each one well. For instance, you might start by taping SNAPSHOT Virgil Miller_ FRANCHISE: Video Memories local franchise name of Video Data Services, a national video- laping service___ RESIDENCE: Bakersfield.

Your video business can easily be started on a pan-time basis. Weddings. The company will provide you with tapes to run in a booth at bridal shows. They’ll also give you a letter to send to couples whose engagement is announced in the newspaper. Miller’s approach is not as structured. “I never turn down a job, even if I know that I can’t do it or don’t have the equipment. I’d rather accept the job and then subcontract to someone else. That way the customer keeps coming back to me.” Miller has both consumer and commercial accounts. “1 tape everything short of commercial TV: legal depositions, real-estate property, sports, graduations, even a video yearbook. I also do a lot of industrial work, like training tapes. For sales promotions. I’ll videotape a company’s products for the salesman to show customers on the road.” The graphics capabilities of his Amiga make it easy to put titles and credits on tape. “With the Amiga, I can digitize the image of a business logo into the computer, enhance it, clean it up, and put it right on the videotape. Most businesses are impressed with the product, and their satisfaction gets me more customers. Actually, I usually get three new customers from every job I do, just from word of mouth. It has been easy to turn a very good profit.” Other new business comes from the franchisor, through direct- mail marketing, and the yellow pages. Kern County helped Virgil Miller retrain for a new livelihood. For an investment ot SI 3.950. the county certainly got its money's worth.

The Awi TRYING TO NAVIGATE the new Workbench 2.0 without help is like attempting to find your way alone along unfamiliar roads in a new place. Sure, there are signs and other motorist aids common to all routes, but unless you have a map to tell you where you are going and how to get there, you will probably take several wrong turns on the way. Users of previous versions of Workbench will certainly recognize familiar components in V2.0, but somehow everything will still seem new and different. The truth is, yes, things are very different. Perhaps the shock comes from the fact that Workbench is the part of the Amiga that has changed least in the five years since Version 1.0. It is as if somebody has been saving up all of the changes in appearance, power, and convenience in order to spring them on us all at once. Maybe that’s why Commodore chose the designation 2.0, instead of 1.4 as originally planned. In any event, let’s open our road map and see if we can get from A to Z on Route 2.0 without mishap. This Is One Scenic Highway! Your first boot will convince you that things have changed dramatically with 2.0. The Workbench screen (see Figure 1) has been dressed up in the graphics equivalent of a three-piece suit to give it a more professional appearance. New colors have been carefully selected to give the screen a 3-D “embossed" look, in which unselected buttons appear to be raised while selected buttons appear to be pressed in. Each icon is displayed on its own raised box, which both adds to the 3-D effect and makes the icons more visible on a black-and-white monitor. The 2.0 Workbench window is now the real thing, with borders having appropriate gadgetry. This means you can size and depth-arrange it just like any other window, making it easy to get to your disk icons when the screen is filled with other windows. The new-look window gadgets function identically to the old ones, except for the pair in the upper-right corner. Now, a single button on the far right replaces the old pair of front back gadgets, making depth- arrangement a lot less confusing. The same button now moves the hidden window forward when you want it and sends it back when you decide that you are finished. The zoom gadget to the left of the depth gadget is a new addition. When pressed, it instantly shrinks the Workbench window down to its minimum size. Press it again, and the window returns to full size. What the zoom gadget really does is toggle the window size and position between its current state and an alternate one. The default settings for these two states are normally opening size and minimum size. You can, however, edit the settings by manually changing either or both of these default values. Perhaps you might want the former to be only an intermediate size, sufficient to display all of its icons and nothing more; or you may find the latter too tiny and wish to enlarge it. Double-click any of your disk icons, and you will see another change. The clunky fuel gauge on the left side of the window is gone. In its place, the window’s title bar contains a text message that shows both the percentage and approximate amount (in kilobytes or megabytes) of disk space in use, as well as the amount that is free. On the main Workbench screen, you will also notice that the title bar now By Sheldon Leemon AddBuffers Assign Avail BindDrivers Break ChangeTaskPri Copy CPU Date k; prefs I Control Pointer Screen Mode WBConflg Input .aHJ- Font Printer Print
• A >ll Time m used to require Cll-style commands. For example, it can display and manipulate every File and directory on a disk, not just those for which there is an icon file (one whose name ends in “.info”). To see for yourself, select Show from the Window menu on the Workbench screen, and two sub-items appear: Icons Only, which is the default selection, and .All Files. Choosing the latter shows you the new “busy” pointer (a stopwatch has replaced the “Zzz") as new drawer icons are added to the Workbench window. You may need to scroll around the window to see them all, but eventually you will find icons for the C:, s:, devs:, and other directories that never existed on Workbench before. Double-click the C drawer, and you will learn another fascinating fact about the new Workbench. It not only displays icons for “CLI-only” type programs, but it can also run them from those icons. Size up the C window so that it shows all of the icons. (You may wish to select Clean Up from the Window menu so you can organize them.) If you double-click on the DIR icon, a requester pops up that allows you to add command arguments just as you would on a CLI command line (specifying which directory to list, for example). It is not even necessary to click on these nonWorkbench-type icons such as DIR to access this new single-line CLI capability. Simply select Execute Command from the Workbench menu, and the same requester appears, allowing you to type in the command and its arguments. Back to our DIR example above: If you simply distinguishes between graphics (chip) memory and other memory in displaying the amount available. You’ll Also Get Better Mileage on This Road The new Workbench not only looks better, it also works better. It now does just about everything that Figure 1. The new 2.0 Workbench screen Is clear and well organized. A 3-D effect, enhanced through color, makes icon buttons appear to be raised when unselected and depressed when selected. 3 22 6 23 4 4 35 34 10 10 32 3 70 248 14 47 3 36 if want a listing of the directory in which DIR resides, click on OK to bring up the Workbench Output window, which will scroll the entire directory listing until you stop it with the close gadget. You can hah output to this window by pressing any key just as with a regular CLI window-but do not worry if the contents scroll by too quickly. When resized to their maximum height, the new console windows will show as much previously displayed text as will fit. Choosing to “Show .All Files’’ does not actually create icon (.info) files on your disk. Instead, Workbench creates icons that exist only in RAM (see Figure
2) . (Version 2.0, by the way, allows any program to do this, creating an icon in the shape of a printer for a print spooler program, for example, so that you can drag document files on top of that icon to print them.) About the only disadvantage to these “fake” icons is that you cannot “snapshot” them (save their arrangement within a window whose position and size you can also save); but if you wish to do so, you can turn them into real icons by loading them into the Icon Edit program and saving them to disk. The process of creating fake icons, however, can take a long time if you choose to display the contents of a large directory, and you may not even have room on screen for all the icons. In such a case, you may wish to view the directory as a list of names, not icons. For example, in the C window you opened previously, select View By from the Window menu and then choose the sub-item Name. The directory-dis- piay window instantly turns into a scrolling list of names that looks like a sorted version of the output of the CLI command LIST. (You can also choose to have the list sorted by date or file size, instead of by name.) This is no ordinary text display, however, because each line of text is actually an icon that you can drag, double-click, or whatever you wish. The new Workbench even includes an icon-driven equivalent to the sistartup-sequence file. Called the WBStartup drawer, it executes automatically at startup time whatever program icon you drag into it. Using ToolTypes entries (commands that can be added by selecting the icon and choosing the Information menu item), you can specify the order of execution, as well as whether you wish to wait for one program to finish before the next is started. Driving in Comfort More polished and more powerful, Version 2.0 of the Workbench is also easier to use. If you scan the menu bar, you will see that menu items are now grouped by options that apply to: (1) the Workbench as a whole; (2) drawer windows only; (3) all icons; and (4) Tools, by which applications can add their own items to the Workbench menu. Many of the menu items now have keyboard equivalents. For example, if you select an icon and then press Right Amiga-R, the Rename requester pops up. Several options exist for selecting more than one icon at a lime. The Window menu now has a Select ?

For example, you can now display a drawer as text, drag-select multiple Icons, and display flies and directories that don’t have Icon files. Window to snapshot them. Simply choose Snapshot All from the Window menu, and it’s done. With 2.0 you can say goodbye to the Empty drawer of previous Workbench versions. Using the New Drawer menu item, you can create a new drawer icon, rather than duplicating an empty one. Workbench 2.0 also exhibits some real evidence of multitasking. The Rename requester, for example, no longer suspends all activity until you finish renaming. The same holds true for starting a program: doubleclicking a tool icon such as Say no longer results in a busy signal from your pointer; instead, the message "Attempting to load program ‘Say’ ” appears in the title bar of the Workbench screen leaving you free to perform any other action while the program is loading. You can use the right mouse button as a “cancel" button, nullifying whatever the left mouse button happens to be doing. Start to resize a window, for example, by dragging its size gadget with the left button depressed. If you change your mind, click the right button before letting go of the left one, and the window snaps back to its original size. You can use this feature to stop dragging an icon or to cancel selection of one of a group of selected items. A really clever new 2.0 option is the Leave Out feature. While Workbench previously allowed you to move a tool or project icon manually from its drawer onto the Workbench window' for easy access, it never before provided a way to do so automatically, so that your most-used programs were available as soon as you booted Workbench. Now , however, if you select, say, the Shell icon on your Workbench disk and then choose Ijeave Out from the Icons menu, the icon moves out of its drawer onto the Workbench window and stays there reappearing in that window whenever you start Workbench again. (Select Put Away when you no longer want the icon there.) “PREFERENTIAL” TREATMENT For 2.0 Travelers While many of the programs on the Workbench disk have received a total makeover (we will discuss some of these later), the biggest changes involve Preferences. Previous versions used a single Preferences editor to create a file called devs:system-configuration in which all preference settings were stored. Under the new scheme, each group of preference settings (printer text, printer graphics, date and time, and so forth) has its own editor, and individual setting files are all stored in the env:sys directory. (The system will, however, still respond to system-con figuration settings whenever possible if the file exists on the boot disk.) Preferences are updated through the use of “file notification,” a new feature that allows Workbench (or any other program) to be notified whenever a file is changed. Any of your preference settings, therefore, can be changed simply by copying a new file to the appropriate directory. .Although some of the Preferences editors are similar to parts of the old Preferences program, their functions have been greatly expanded. For example, take the Printer editor through which you inform the system what kind of printer you are using. It still has a variety of buttons that let you select the printer, printer port, type and size of paper, print quality, and margins; and it still incorporates the traditional Save, Use. And Cancel buttons. But now it also offers some new menu options, .As with most of the new Preferences editors, its Project menu allows you to save a particular setting to disk (Save .As) or to load one in (Open). Its Options menu even lets you save files with icons that install the settings automatically when you double-click on them. The program’s Edit menu allows you to restore the default settings, the ones you saved last, or the set you started with. The Palette editor used to select i new' Workbench colors has similar menus, but its Edit menu now also allows you to select any one of ten alternate color sets. To take a quick run through these color sets, simply start up the Palette editor, hold down the Right .Amiga key, and then press each of the number keys (1-9) in turn. In addition to such editors as Input, PrinterGfx, Serial, Time, and Pointer that duplicate the functions of the old Preferences program, there are some brand-new and very exciting editors. The Overscan editor lets you select a size both for standard overscan (the largest visible display on your monitor) and for text overscan (the size you want your Workbench display to he). ?

You can, if you wish and have the memory to do so, even set a Workbench screen that is larger than the visible display. Set Width to 800 and Height to 600, and you will end up with a scrolling Workbench screen that size. There are several ways to move around this big screen. If you select the Screen Mode editor’s AutoScroll feature, you can scroll the screen merely by moving the pointer over the edge. You can also grab the title bar and drag the screen as usual, now both to left and right as well as up and down. You can even drag the screen from any location simply by holding down the Screen Drag key (which defaults to the Left Amiga key, but can be changed using the Icontrol editor) and moving the mouse. This method works on any screen and makes it easy to slide a screen on which the title bar is not visible. A pair of new Preferences editors gives you even more control over the appearance of your display. The WBPattern editor lets you replace the solid background in the Workbench or drawer windows with a colored pattern. (As with the Pointer editor, the file it saves is in IFF format, which means that you can edit it as a brush in a paint package.) The Font editor allows you to install your preferred font in any of three places: under the Workbench icons, in menu bars and system text messages, and in any application that uses the default system text (see Figure 4). For a change of pace, try setting the icon font, say, to Garnet 16 and the screen font to Courier 15. (Be sure to check out the menus when you set the screen font.) Be aware, however, that changing the default font may not w'ork well with some existing applications that assume they are getting the standard eight-pixel system font. While we are on the subject of text, it may be useful to mention that 2.0 incorporates both faster text display (no need to run the FF FastFonts program any more) and support for the ColorFonts standard. (You can even install multicolor fonts on the Workbench.) Version 2.0 also supports bitmap font scaling, by means of which the system can produce a rough version of a font at a size other than the actual one. To get an idea of how this works, select Execute Command from the Workbench menu and type “Set- font topaz 14 scale.” A Workbench Output window pops up, allowing you to type in text using the scaled font. As you will see, the width of the letters is very uneven scaled bitmaps are clearly not the same as scalable oudine fonts (which are in the works for a future Workbench release).

Examples of Commodities Exchange programs include: NoCapsLock, which nullifies the effect of the CapsLock key should you press it accidentally; Blanker, which blanks the screen after a certain period of time; AutoPoint, which automatically activates the window under the pointer; I Help, which provides keyboard control over front back window movement and minimum maximum window sizing. Although a number of such programs were written as accessories for Workbench 1.3, Commodities Exchange makes them standard equipment and also ensures that hotkey definitions do not overlap by allowing users to define their own hot keys and key priorities for each Commodity. The Tools drawer of the Extras disk contains a completely new IconEdit program to replace the original, which was not Amiga-like in appearance or function. It has such paint-program features as line, box, and circle drawing, along with fill and undo gadgets. It loads and saves IFF brush files, with the Load and Save options now using real file requesters. (A standard file requester is now included with the system software.) It even lets you edit the default icons that the system uses when there is no icon file. One of IconEdit’s neatest additions is the use of a new "smart-window” feature that notifies the prointerprocess command language Arexx. Greatly facilitating the means by which one program can communicate with another to allow them to work together, Arexx has been strongly supported as a means of enhancing the -Amiga's multitasking power.

To see it in action, simply start the IconEdit program and then drag any icon into the large editing window in the upper-left corner. The program automatically loads that icon into the editor. CLI Pit Stop. ., and Happy Motoring! .Although the Workbench now handles many of the chores formerly reserved for the CLI, the command environment has not been dropped. On the contrary, it too has been improved and expanded. The Shell has been integrated into the CLI, and it now recognizes over thirty commands without loading them from disk. (The “resident" program gives you a complete list of ‘‘internal" commands.) The rest of the commands have been rewritten, and they are smaller, faster, and more flexible through greater use of pattern matching. CLI windows now have close gadgets, and console windows such as the CLI support “copy-and-paste” functions. This means that you can drag your mouse across a portion of text in the window, select it (it will be highlighted in another color), go to another window, and then paste in that text using the Right Amiga-V key combination. This means that you can, for example, copy a directory listing from a CLI window into the window of the Ed text editor, or copy text from Ed to the MEMACS editor. We have traveled quite a distance using our operator’s guide to the new Workbench, yet we’ve still left a lot of ground uncovered. Some of the changes are “under the hood" and will not he visible until programmers take advantage of them. For instance, the Workbench does not contain any example of “public screens,” a mechanism by which one program can open windows on another program’s screen (including windows that would normally open on the Workbench). Nor does it include programs to invoke the “no-click" option for floppy drives, or the use of the asterisk as a CLI wildcard. Until networking becomes popular, it will be hard to demonstrate “record-locking" (a means of keeping one user from changing part of a file that another user is reading). In addition, although the system defaults to formatting floppy disks using the standard file system, Workbench 2.0 has built-in (ROM) support for FFS (FastFileSystem) floppies. It can even boot from them. In short, there are so many changes that it would be impossible to cover them all here, I do hope, however, that our brief road trip will lead you to some of your own discoveries.

* ACCENT ? 20 A continuing series of tips, techniques, and tricks for creating more imaginative Amiga graphics. By Joel Hagen IN KEEPING WITH Amiga World's emphasis on video this month, we’ll focus on digitizing tips in this installment of Accent. Although a few may benefit from more specialized equipment, most of the techniques I will describe are based on inexpensive improvisation and practical ingenuity. Find a Lens. .. Any Old Lens No matter what kind of digitizer or camera you use with your Amiga, a variety of lenses can greatly extend your digitizing options. If you are using a security camera or an old home video camera, the threads are probably the same as those on a 16mm movie camera. Flea markets and yard sales can turn up a variety of interesting lenses. Some will have adjustable F-stop settings that many simple video lenses lack. Others will have different focal lengths or fields of view. I always keep one old lens handy for exotic optical experiments (such as those outlined later in this column). You can, of course, use your SLR (single-lens reflex) lenses with your video camera by purchasing a C-mount adapter. This shallow, threaded funnel lets your 35mm SLR lenses serve double duty. In addition, a good wide-angle zoom lens can be especially valuable because it allows easy framing of digitized art without moving either camera or source. Look in odds-and-ends bins in your local photo store for the adapter. If you do not have a macro lens for your video camera, there are still good ways to shoot startling close-ups. If you find you are too close to an object to focus on it, begin unscrewing the lens gradually until it comes into focus. You will be amazed at the enlargements this simple method can achieve, lo get even greater magnification, use any magnifying hand lens you might have around. Ideal for the purpose are lenses mounted in small adjustable stands, such as those used by stamp collectors. Simply mount the hand lens over the object and focus the camera through the lens while watching the live image on the monitor. I have even “hot-glued” a telescope objective to the front housing of a TV lens for extreme enlargements. The illustration of the date on a penny that accompanies this column was shot in just this way for a project in which I am cata- loging mint errors in Lincoln one-cent pieces I have collected. The video lens cost three dollars in a lens bin, and the telescope objective is from a child’s 60 x refractor. Neither was damaged by the temporary setup. You can easily substitute a VCR for the camera as the video signal for tiie digitizer. Some digitizers can record color images directly from this signal. If you have one or wish to buy one, you can use a color splitter to electronically break a color signal into red, green, and blue components for separate scans. Even if all you have is a black-and-white camera with a color wheel, play the VCR into a color television and point your digitizing camera at the screen. Use the freeze-frame feature on the VCR to select the image or sequence of images to capture, and then use the color filters as you would for flat art. The resulting color image is remarkably good. Remember to take advantage of brightness, contrast, and color controls on your TV. Also, experiment with setting the video camera just a bit out of focus to soften the captured image. You will he surprised how much you can do with this simple approach. Perfect image clarity need not always be the main criterion in digitizing. Artistic projects often benefit from accidental effects, so don’t feel hampered by a lack of expensive equipment. Apply your imagination to what you have at hand. Inventiveness, not expensiveness, is the key to pulling off some pretty imaginative digitizing tricks. Attending to Domestic Matters When clarity is the goal on a digitizing project, any loss of quality is frustrating. For example, you may experience a “herring-bone" interference pattern when you try to digitize an image. The problem may be color: Some digitizers work best with black-and-white cameras and will produce reduced quality if you use a color model. Many times, however, these patterns result from poor grounding. I use alligator clips on my digitizer to ensure a good ground from the outside metal sheath of the RCA connector to a bare screw on the chassis, and I do the same for my sound sampler. T he difference this makes can sometimes be surprising. One manufacturer recommends avoiding a “ground loop" by using a three-prong grounded plug only on the CPU itself. All other components attached to the computer then use three-to-two adapters to plug into the power strip. * While we are on die business of organizing your equipment, quite a few hints and tips come to mind about how to set up your digitizing area. 1 find a tripod to he a much handier video-camera mount than a commercial copy stand. I can tilt the head down for flat an, or up to shoot live portraits or three-dimensional subjects. In fact, 1 have gone a step further and mounted a tripod head on a monopod made from plumbing • pipe bolted to the floor. To avoid plugging and unplugging RCA cables in the back of the Amiga from the monitor to the digitizer as you line up the live image for capture, get an inexpensive video switcher from any video store. In the same vein, a data switch and cables will let vou switch easily among all your parallel-port functions without shutting off power. Mine is mounted under my desk so 1 can simply rotate the switch for digitizer, printer, sound sampler, and tricorder. T he cost of all this was about S80, As a rule, 1 find that fluorescents give me cleaner exposure and better color than incandescent lights. T he most effective setup I have seen is that designed by Gene Brawn (The CopyGym, S250), a frequent contributor to AmigaWorld. He uses lour horizontal fluorescents mounted around his digitizing stage. This avoids hot spots and shadows by providing even, soft lighting. For most of my studio work. I use overhead fluorescents as the main light source, augmented with a smaller fluorescent at tlie edge of my desk beneath the camera. I am fortunate to have found an excellent second-hand, black-and-white home video camera that is very light-sensitive and does not require intense lighting. If you are just beginning to look for a camera. Run a want ad in the local free shopper for something similar. Check for burned-in spots on the video tube by pointing the camera at anv white surface (a refrigerator, for example) to see il any spots or shadows move when you move the camera. You should he able to find a good camera for under S100 with a little Icgwork. ¦ Joel Hagen's credits include work in art, astronomy, science fiction, and software development.

POINTERS Information and Ideas on Amiga Programming Amiga Basic Text Display By Bryan D. Catley EVEN THOUGH IT is a powerful language, Amiga Basic does noi provide direct access to many of the Amiga's features for displaying text on the screen. At first glance, it seems you cannot display text at any x,y pixel location in bold, underlined, italicized, or any combination of these styles; nor can you display text in the JAM I, Inverse Video, or Complementary modes. .Ail is not lost, however. By calling operating- system routines and using subprograms, you can access these features 10 display text efficiently and artistically. OS Calls to the Rescue Before running a program with operating-system routines = ROM Kernel routines), you need to check and prepare. First, the names of the routines are case- sensitive. So be sure to type them with upper- and lowercase letters exactly as shown. Second, if the graphics.bmap file is not already in the current directory or the Workbench’s libs: directory, copy it there from the BasicDemos drawer of your Extras disk. To print on screen other text styles, such as italics, you can call the ROM Kernel routine SetSoftStyle& to change the style, and then output the text with the Print statement. Enter the following quickie program to see how this all works. LIBRARY "graphics.library" ‘ now set italics CALL SetSoftStyle&(WINDOW(8),4,255) LOCATE 5,5 PRINTThis Is a line of italics!” ' now return to standard style CALL SetSoftStyle&(WINDOW = 8),0,255) END the Print statement displays each character individually in its own eight-by-eight pixel area, and, since italics are formed by “leaning” each character into its neighbor’s area, the Print command chops off a portion of each one. Therefore, you need to display the text as a complete string rather than as individual characters. The Move&r and Text& calls are just the ticket. Replace the Locate and Print statements with: ' locate to x-plxel 35 and y-plxel 42 CALL Move&(WINDOW(8),35,42) ’ display the text as a string CALL Text&(WINDOW(8),SADD(”This is a line of italics'”),26) These two calls set the screen location and display the text as a much more readable string. You may set the text mode with a similar statement. (JAM 1 mode displays text in the current foreground color, while the background is left untouched; JAM2 shows text in the current foreground color and fills the background with the current background color; Inverse Video reverses the roles of the foreground and background colors; Complementary mode uses the complements oft he current foreground and background colors. To calculate a color’s complement, subtract its palette number from the highest available palette number for the current screen.) For example, CALL SetDrMd& = WINDOW(8),0) sets the JAM I mode. The following sample program combines Move&, Texl&. And SelDrMd&: LIBRARY ‘'graphics.library” ' draw some lines As you can see. The program produces italics, but chops up the text in the process! It does so because Cotitinued on p. 74 t Trumpcard Professional... "> the Frontrunner in SCSI disk controllers State of the art users deserve jjgggKiP' state of the art hardware

P From p. 66 FOR n = 10 TO 18 STEP 2 LlNE(5,n) STEP(96,0),2 NEXT ' set JAM1 drawing mode CALL SetDrMd&(WINDOW(8),0) ' display some text over the lines CALL Move&(WINDOW(8),5,17) CALL Text&(WINDOW(8),SADD(‘This is JAM1n),12) ' reset to JAM2 drawing mode CALL SetDrMd&(WINDOW(8),1) END 0 I N I E R S ' Set Desired Print Style SUB SetPrStyle (prStyle) STATIC prStyle% = prStyle CALL SetSoftStyle&(WINDOW(8),prStyle%,255) END SUB SUB SetPrMode (prMode) STATIC prMode& = prMode CALL SetDrMd&(WINDOW(8),prMode&) END SUB While the above code certainly makes effective use of the Amiga’s text-drawing features, the multitude of Call statements with unintelligible parameters is cumbersome and destroys the program’s readability. You can tidy up the mess by making use of Amiga Basic s subprogram capabilities. Substitute the Sidekick Subprograms are like subroutines except that they are bounded by SUB. . .END SUB statements (in- * stead of label. . .RETURN statements). They may be invoked by name alone (rather than using the GO- SUB command) and may receive and return information via parameters. In addition, they use their own local variables, meaning that variable x in the main program can hold a different value than variable x in subprogram-1, subprogram-2, and so on. What this means is that you can create a set of subprograms for handling text, save them to disk, and then use the Merge command to combine them with any program you wish. Note that while subprograms may appear anywhere within a program, by convention they are usually placed at the end. For example, the following four small subprograms replace all those Call statements above. LocateTo defines the location of the text to be displayed; SetPrStyle sets the text style; SetPrMode specifies the mode of text display; and ShowText replaces the Print statement. Carefully enter the code; then type SAVE “TexlSubs' A to save the collection of subprograms to your Amiga Basic disk in ASCII format. Please note that you may not use the menu Save option. The Merge command, which combines die subprograms with the main program, works with ASCII files only. ’ LocateTo a Specific Pixel SUB LocateTo (xpixel%,ypixel%) STATIC SHARED FontHeight& x& = xpixel%:y& = ypixel% + INT(FontHeight&*.75) CALL Move&(WlNDOW = 8),x&,y&) END SUB Display a Given String of Text SUB ShowText (textlnS) STATIC CALL Text&(WINDOW(8),SADD(textln$ ),LEN(textlnS)) END SUB While you are neatening up. Saving the following collection of variable assignments (as ASCII with SAVE “TexlNames”,A) will make your final listing much more readable. LIBRARY “graphics.tibrary” standard = 0:underline = 1 :bold = 2:italics = 4 JAM1 = 0:JAM2 = 1 :complement = 2:inversvld = 4 FontHeight& = 8 As you can see, the first subprogram, LocateTo, contains more than the promised Call statements. The short calculation adds 75% of the value of the FontHeight& variable (which is shared with the main program via the Shared declaration) to the given y value. This allows you to specify print locations for the upper-left corner of the first character in the string. Why is it necessary to add 75%? When Move& specifies a print location, it references the pixel that will be the left end ol the text string's baseline. A text string’s baseline corresponds to where the lower edges of letters such as a, b, and c rest. Letters such as g, j, p, q. and many punctuation marks have tails extending below the baseline, making ii more awkward to determine the exact location at which a string of text will appear on screen. As a guideline, the baselines of most standard Amiga fonts arc 75% down from the top of each character (those that aren't are only one pixel off). So. If the heighi ol the lout is eight (as for the default »“ n Topaz font), you can specify the upper-lelt corner of the fust character in vour program, and then add 75% of the font's height to the y value used in the subprogram much more straight-forward! You could simple add six. Bin ihe approach shown here gives you the flexibility to use fonts of different si es, without having to modify your subprogram. The other assignments in the subprograms simply ensure that the given values are converted to the appropriate format for the required parameter. Also, the Window(8) function returns a pointer to the cur- THE TOTAL DISK BACKUP SOLUTION!! OMPLETE SYSTEM FOR ONLY ... “It's fast, easy to use and very, very efficient." AMIGA FORMAT NOW YOU CAN BACK-UP ANY DISK IN AROUND 50 SECONDS!!
• YES IT'S TRUE!! SYNOWO EXPRESS IS A HARDWARE SOFTWARE SYSTEM THAT WORKS WITH "DIGITAL IMAGE COPYING". THIS IS THE METHOD THAT COMMERCIAL DUPLICATORS ACTUALLY USE TO MAKE THE ORIGINAL FROM THE MASTER DISK. DATA IS TRANSFERRED AS RAW DIGITAL INFORMATION.
• UNMATCHED PERFORMANCE!! It's hard to draw comparisons between Syncro Express and old fashioned Disk Copiers. Because they use parameters, they are almost guaranteed NOT to copy your latest purchase since parameters are not made available until several months after the release. But with the Syncro Express image copy method you can get a backup of all the latest programs, including blockbusters and utilities, quickly & easily. Start protecting your software investment NOW!!
• Menu Drive Control Program oouldp't b simplerl! Select Number of Tracks, and that’s it!! Don’t be mislead by outrageous claims fqf "Nibbler" programs. This system can guarantee success by using the very Hardware Software techniques that made the original!! Why will Syncro Express succeed where others fail? Some programs now have very sophisticated protection including long tracks, Incryption, etc. But remenjber, whatever the programmer comes up with, the disk then has to be commercially duplicated. That's where Syncro Express beats all others - it transfers data at MFM TTL level, just like the duplicators. POWER BY DESIGN
• Syncro Express is designed in Europe where "Digital Image Copying" is the present sensation. This device, with it’s custom chip, goes even further by offering a complete system for under $ 70!! •
o Manufactured in our European facility using the latest Surface Moynt Techniques - Syncro Express is warranted for 6 months against manufacturing defects. THE LATEST CUSTOM LSI CHIP TECHNOLOGY Syncro Express comes fitted with it’s own on-board Custom LSI Chip giving it the power to transfer an MFM image of the original disk directly to your blank disk - quickly, simply & without user knowledge. So it doesn't matter what kind of data is there or whether the disk is "protected" - Syncro Express will make an identical "Clone" of your original without fuss. Available for A500 1000 2000 3000 please state which computer when ordering. One external drive is required (except Special A2000 Internal Version • see below). SPECIAL A2000 VERSION NOW A special version of Syncro Express hardware for the A2000 Amiga with two internal disk drives is available Fits internally so you don’t need the external drive that the Standard version requires.

Q Media Multi Interface Design: The User Conies First Editors Note: Welcome to our new mo tit hi) column on multimedia. It will feature a variety of experts bringing you tips, techniques, or tutorials on different aspects of Amiga multimedia productions. NO MATTER HOW elegant the program that drives your interactive multimedia presentation, it is useless if the user cannot access its database of pictures, sound, music, animations, data, and text. Everything you do, from playing an animation to printing a title, should focus on the user's needs and expectations. When designing the interface, try to put yourself in the user’s place. Why would he want to view this sequence? Are her feet getting tired from standing at the kiosk too long? Did he forget his glasses and cannot read the tiny type in your display? If you think this an impossible task, try a revolutionary procedure; Test the production on typical users! Software companies, advertising agencies. And manufacturers do this all the time with spectacular results.
K. I.S.S. and No Surprises My testing sessions go most smoothly it 1 follow a few multimedia rules of thumb when constructing the application. The first is: Keep it simple. This holds true for both visual and program design. If users must search a cluttered display every time they need to do something, they probably won’t try. Use the principles of graphic design to focus attention By Gene Brawn on the subject at hand, keeping options to a minimum. Consistency goes hand-in-hand with simplicity. If your application has repeating elements, put them in the same place every time they appear no surprises. For example, if you group your basic navigational controls along the bottom of the screen, always present them in the same order. Remember that all of these buttons need not appear on every screen. The Home button would not appear on the Home screen, for example. The Navigator The multimedia programmer’s fundamental navigational tool is the screen ’’hot spot,” which is simply an area of the screen that initiates an action when clicked. The most common form of hot spot is an icon. For example, an icon designed to resemble a projector might play an animation. Unfortunately, lar too many icon buttons are so badly designed that they actually impede the user’s ability to navigate an application. Although a text label can clearly state an icon’s function, an icon that needs such a label is a failure, lake the ubiquitous octagonal stop sign, for example. Not only does it instantly convey its meaning in any language but u also functions equally well as a pure icon, without the word "stop.” Unfortunately, there are verv few tin- J 4 ambiguous icons. So, instead of designing an icon for each function, create a class symbol for a group of related functions. Using on-screen, VCR-style buttons to control an animation is a perfect example. Each button has the same design, but a different symbol printed on it, You’d be surprised at how often you can group functions in this way. You can conserve screen real estate it you use toggles buttons that change their function when you click them. For example, an animation button labeled "Play” could change to “Pause” once the animation begins. You must, however, be absolutely certain that the user notices this difference. Often, changing a button's color is enough. Just Looking, Thank You A browser is a powerful way to navigate a multimedia application, especially for professional users who know what they are looking for. The simplest browser is the page turner, which allows the user to view the material in an unstructured manner, like leafing through an encyclopedia. The user clicks a button, perhaps in the corner of the screen, to move on to the next file on the disk one that may not be related to the current screen. Implement the browser with care, for with it. Users can bypass all your carefully constructed links and possibly miss the point of the presentation. Link maps, graphic representations of all the modules and connections in your presentation, are also useful as browsers. The user calls up the map. Which highlights the current screen, and clicks on another module to jump to its screen. As If you ever wondered just how smart you were when you bought your Amiga, get AmigaVisionl Remember your original reasons lor getting an Amiga? Of course you do. Silly question. Well, fast-forward now to April 24th, 1990, the day Commodore introduced AmigaVision. | jJ AmujaVinion in an authoring system for a mere $ M9 that allmen the Amiga to live up to itnjullpotential. The easy-to-learn, easy-to use icons you see up on the
i. - * i * screen and on this page call up music, animation, text, video in whatever order or even simultaneously and * create, well, any tvq e ol presentation or courseware. Also, AmigaVision takes full advantage ol Arexx, your Amiga’s lile lormat standards and its multitasking capabilities. As you might imagine, you don't have to be a programmar to turn your abstract ideas into reality. All you have to be is you. Can it extend the use ol application software you already own? Is there multitasking interaction with other programs? Is it dBase III™ database compatible? Yes...yes...yes, to all these queries. For business people, it can create presentations that persuade. For people in education and training, it can help create interactive instructional programs. For anyone, anywhere, it can liberate the way they communi- cate, whether they are delivering information or VK entertainment. Call 1-800-627-9595 soon to find the location ol your closest Amiga dealer. For you, its another confirmation v- i of what you knew before most people: namely how smart Amiga is and how shrewd its owners were when they C- * bought one.

Inc M II L T I M E I) I V you may imagine, trying to display a large application’s hundreds, even thousands, of links on a single screen is all but impossible. In that case, limit the map to a display of only those related links nearest the current module. A similar navigational aid that’s especially handy for historical presentations is the time line. You use it to examine concurrent, but otherwise unrelated, events. For example, if a promotional screen for a bus tour displays an array of dates and times, users can click on each to find out what sort of landscape they would be passing at that point. Spell It Out A highlighted word in a well-written paragraph is the ultimate icon. Hypertext branching among logically linked passages based on key words is one of the most powerful elements of multimedia. But, paradoxically, most users are not comfortable reading text from monitors, so keep your message short and try to use a graphic to reinforce the idea. If possible, use Hi-res mode to display the blocks of text. Above all, keep your text easy to read, especially if you are working with NTSC (television) systems. Colors blur and text gets fuzzy, so you should increase the size of your typeface and reduce the length of your message for this format. If you are highlighting text links, give the user a way to turn them off, because too many highlights can detract from the point of the text. Please, for everyone’s sake, don’t go crazy with fancy typefaces; a simple Times or Helvetica is preferable to an indecipherable Gothic, What you say is much more important than how you say it, so. To lend color to a page, use a picture or a graphic element rather than an overly complex typographical design. Talk Back Feedback is a fundamental part of presentations. One of your prime duties is to keep users reassured that all is well. If they click a button, let them know the command was received. The program should acknowledge the click with a sound or a flash. A more pleasant way to indicate “business as usual” is to play some music. If the screen is blank because the program is loading a tile, a little digital Muzak will keep users confident they haven’t done something fatal. Equally helpful is an orientation screen explaining the use of the interface. Keep in mind that there will often be no paper documentation available, especially in public-information systems where a person may use your program onlv once. A context-sensitive, on-line help system is invaluable here. Even with plenty of up-front help, multimedia applications are often so complex that users will get lost or work themselves into a dead-end. Provide an on-screen map of where they have been, so they can retrace their steps to the wrong turn and carry on from there. Multimedia applications require attention to detail, anticipation of the user’s needs, and, most of all, a nearly transparent interface. If you plan carefully and follow these techniques, your presentation will be effective and fun to use. ¦ Gene Bmum is an interactive multimedia producer.

You’ll ilip an eyepatch when you see Microprose’s first full-fledged Amiga conversion. It’s as though this role-playing adventure game had been reinacle from the keel up. In Pirates!, you're a buccaneer flying one of four flags and seeking high adventure in the Caribbean of the 16th or 17th century. There are hearts to be won, rich ports to be conquered, and ships to be sent to the bottom. You don’t have to struggle with some arcane interface to do it either. Pirates! Is all mouse and menu save for a joystick-controlled sword-fighting sequence. Sailing, while obeying the rule of the wind, is easy. Clicking the mouse anytime you’re out brings up a menu of useful information that makes it even easier. The game is also delightfully open-ended; you can start pillaging right from the get-go and worry about the larger missions later. The manual is typically excellent, but you don’t need it to have fun. Budokan By Graham Kinsey UNLIKE MOST MARTIAL arts games, Budokan: The Martial Spirit does not immediately confront yon with an Pirates! Is a delight for the eves and ears. The illustrations that mark key events are like storybook pictures and are often brought to life with spot animation. The static graphics are rich and vivid; the game leaps from the screen. A lovely harpischord piece plays at the outset, and you can request one of a dozen other classical compositions. On the sailing screen, when the winds pick up, the clouds rush across the screen, and your ship gathers speed, there’s a persuasive opponent. The game begins in a dojo, from which you can enter various training centers. In these, you can practice the sense of motion. The game feels like what it's about. On ihe features wish list are mealier, more complicated play options and the ability to save the game at any point. As it is. Vou must return to base z first, and if the winds are against vou, this can be a deck-swabbing chore. When those winds rise, however, I'm the most willing of captives.

You also learn to focus your Ki power, an energy ? By Peter Olafson SOME PEOPLE GET postcards from sunny places, bills from the vet, and fliers for sales at Sears. I get letters asking how to kill the giant purple worms in Dungeon Master (FTL S39.95).
• Tom Smith of Westminster. CO, is stuck on Level 2 of Dungeon Master in the "Time is of the Essence-' riddle room. You have to be really quick here. Four moves to the left and two forward should do it. Use your cursor keys instead of the mouse for extra speed. If that doesn't work, your party may be too heavily laden. Dump some of the heavy stuff and try again. Incidentally, before you even get to the riddle rooms, there’s a handy item in a secret room off the main hallway. Don't just gallumph down every passage; you may be surprised at what you’re missing. Any irregularity in the walls is worth investigating.
• David Chau of Alberta, Canada, is trapped between a rock and a hard monster the major domo in the second stage of Shadow of the Beast (Psygnosis, S49.95) and is dismayed that his newfound heavy-duty weapon won't cut it. Just stay at it, Dave. As I recall, all that's required here is persistence.
• Fellow game reviewer Rob Lawrence writes to suggest that you take your time exploring the wilderness area in The Legend of William Tell (Electronic Zoo, $ 39.95), but that you shouldn't be shy of invading the castle. Apparently it's not as tough as it looks. Rob says you'll need a decent crossbow and winder, however, and a fair amount of loot to bribe the baddies. (A certain key is out there, as well.) Arrows and munchies apples, I bet are plentiful inside the fortress. MATRIX MARAUDERS EARTH ONE - PREPARE TO DESCEND. YOUR TIME HAS COME...

When you deem yourself' ready, you’re off to the famous Budokan arena in Tokyo for a tournament. After deciding which art to learn, you can practice its moves by yourself or against a teacher. To fight, you first move the joystick to indicate your fighting stance; then you choose which attack or block to execute from that stance. Once you have practiced enough, you may go to the mat to spar against other students, who, unlike the teachers, will not hold back their attacks if you weaken. You can specify which of the four martial arts you wish to practice and which you want your partner to use. This could be your hour of triumph if you’ve practiced enough. After extensive sparring, you travel to the Budokan arena and battle experienced opponents, some of whom use fighting styles and weapons not taught in your dojo. Be prepared: You may use each of your arts only four times. You cannot specialize in only one or two arts and still hope Treasure Trap By Chris Dickman IN THE PAST five years, I’ve blasted countless aliens, spent weeks mapping my way through dungeons, and driven enough racing cars to fill a used car lot. 1 thought I’d seen it all, but I found Treasure Trap refreshingly different. The premise is mundane enough: A gold-bearing ship has sunk on the high seas, and you must don an old-fashioned diver’s outfit and wanto win the tournament. Budokan’s concept is good, but its presentation is uneven. While the Kxtra_Halfbt ite- mode graphics are only adequate, the sound is very well done, especially the music. The game runs on accelerated Amigas and does not use clisk- protection; however, you cannot multitask or install it on a hard drive. The biggest complaints I have are the randomly generated, and therefore useless, words of wisdom you receive from the Sensei and the way der through the rooms of the wreck, dodging bad-tempered aquatic lifeforms, to collect the bullion. Unlike most games of its ilk, the game does not reward razor-sharp reflexes. Treasure 1 rap is more a game of strategy, with each of the 100 rooms representing a different puzzle to be solved. I he starfish, octopi, jellyfish, sharks, and other denizens of the deep can indeed spell your untimely demise, but they're not hard to avoid. After collecting 80 bars ol gold, you can invoke the help of a some of the complicated moves were implemented. (I have yet to execute any spinning jump attack via the joystick and have had only slightly better luck with the keyboard.) Not being able to choose different lighting styles was disappointing, as well. For martial arts fans, however, the problems don’t distract too much from the complexity and pleasure the game offers.

Time is more of an enemy than the malevolent sea creatures, with your oxygen supply constantly dwindling. Happily, extra oxygen bottles are scattered throughout the wreck to prolong your three allotted lives. The detailed and lushly colored 3-D rooms are diflerent ?
• Last time out, we spent some time in Throtl, the first city to liberate in Champions of Krynn (Strategic Simulations Inc., $ 49.95). This time, a few pointers on Kernen, the final one: Take the opportunity to get disguised before you set foot in here. It’ll keep down the encounters. (Monsters like looking at other monsters.) Read the messages at the headquarters gate carefully. The guard strength fluctuates through the day, and you can make it even weaker if you explore thoroughly and match an odd item and nonplayer character. Don’t see Myrtani’s minions under every bed. You might have some allies, if you treat them right. I know, half the people in these games look as if they should be sitting on a rock in the desert, but a little trust never killed an adventure game character. . . More than once, anyway.
• The foyer of the monastery In Future Wars (Interplay, $ 49.95) has some folks praying for help. This puzzle calls for watching the monks in the foyer and. Well, monkey see, monkey do. The other most common FW question involves escaping from the cell on the enemy ship. You’ll need two items. One’s available in the tube station. (Yes, the newspaper machine works. If at first you don’t succeed.. .) The other is a little more slippery, and I won’t say more than that the basement monastery wouldn't be a bad place to look very, very carefully.
• A fellow whose name I can’t decipher is threatening to destroy his Amiga if he can't get out of Brooklyn in Gold Rush (Sierra On-Line, S39.95). He’s missing one small, important item, and hence is missing the boat. He doesn't say which items he's found, though so I'll try to "borough” into some of the game's more troublesome small important items. Your house seems a bit empty, doesn't it? Naturally, there’s that photo album to check out. A desk is almost always a source of an item or two in every adventure game I’ve ever played. Don’t neglect the gazebo next door (or the flowers around it you can’t take them with you). The post office demands a visit, and the letter you'll receive (sooner or later) de- ?

Enough not to bore yon during your quest. In fact, the entire playing area seems to be in constant motion, with your diver wandering around, and each room crawling with sea life and floating debris. While the game is visually rich, it's acoustically sparse. I could have used more audible feedback. Treasure Trap supports extra memory, which expedites changing rooms, but it would not load on an A1000 with a Spirit Technology memory board. Electronic Zoo con- ? G A M E firmed that it knows about the problem and offered to refund my money if I couldn't get the game working. It also failed to load on an A3000, but finally ran well on an A500 with one megabyte of RAM. Although a joysick is supported, I found it easier to control the diver with PRESERVE the keyboard. . Treasure Trap is strangely soothing to play, but hardcore arcade gamers might find it wimpy. Some of the puzzles in the outer rooms are quite tricky to solve, and it was a welcome relief not having to worry about dying every ten seconds.

On the surface, HardBall II has all the ingredients: instant replays, league play, a team and player editor, ten teams (all fictitious) and the guts of others, seven ballparks (most of them real), the ability to customize player positioning, a host of changeable play features, and lots more. Tor is slight. Takeoffs and landings are simplified, and rudder control isn’t available. The instrument panels, although unique to each type of aircraft, have also been drastically simplified. TFH is built around an established game-system that has already proven to be a major success. A follow-up to Battle- hawks 1942, TFH improves on the earlier game. It can be controlled via the mouse, kev- board, or joystick, is not copyprotected, and can be run from a hard drive or RAM:.

If you adopt the closeup view from behind the batter and pitcher, you’ll struggle to make a play once (he ball’s been hit. At that point, die game shifts to a full-field view, wilh ihe outbound horsehidc appearing as the smallest of fly- specks. The fielder handling the play is indicated by a change in color too subtle an indicator considering the tininess of players. In short, there’s no way to tell immediately where the hall is or who’s going for it. If you play only from the ; V I K I* R K S K R V i; fuli-field perspective, fielding is much easier, but the batter is so small you can’t lell when to swing. You can switch between ihese modes, but H ying graphics and the sound lacks variety. The fuli-field graphics, by contrast, are rather delicate and pretty. I he attempt to improve an ?

Already excellent game is certainly commendable, but the original’s very simplicity and cleanness of design were its greatest virtues. Even il it was low on options, HardBall just soared along. HardBall II never makes it out of the infield. (S44.95, Accolade, 550 South Winchester Blvd., Suite 200, Sun Jose, C l 9512S, 408 985-
1700. Xo special requirements.) ¦ HardBall II has the same easy-to-use menus for pitcher and batter as in HardBall, but some of the choices arc confusing. When trying to pick off a runner from the mound, the joystick directions are based on riie catcher’s perspective. I lence, if you try to pick off the guy on first by pushing left, you’ll throw to third. Thank goodness the runners are all dumb as dirt. For all the variety of options, die action seems rather still. Runners are slow and far too easy to pick off Throws all come in perfectly on target, regardless of distance. I he computer opponent doesn’t take proper advantage of human errors. The closeup shots are surprisingly rudimentary the Atlanta Braves of Amiga "KARA FONTS" TAKE A QUANTUM LEAP... FONTS THAT MOVE!

From p. 16 just below the Edit screen, you can use the mouse to draw continuous controllers, pitch bend, aftertouch, program changes, velocity, and so on. You can view the different controller graphs by clicking their corresponding buttons, and scroll through them right along with the track. Alternately, a conductor track can occupy the space below the edit screen. Here, you can draw in tempo changes and place time-signature changes at any point (as long as the various time signatures have the same denominator). Write Now Once you finish recording and editing your sequence, QuickScore can transcribe it so you can see it in standard musical notation. You can even print it. If your sequence is properly quantized, QuickScore transcribes accurately, and the output to a dot-matrix printer looks pretty good. T here are a lot of limitations however: no time changes, no key changes, no quarter-note triplets, and no graphic editing. The Display menu offers Tiger Cub lias many nice features, including the ability to perform complex editing operations quickly. Unfortunately, it also has quirks. For example, the Copy and Fill functions work slowly and occasionally crash the program. The manual is above average, but does not explain some functions. I have also found that Dr. T s support line is constantly busy. Kenneth Griffin Bartlett, 1L a number of options that help you customize your display (setting stems, beams, bars per line, etc.), but the default settings are the most logical. Tiger Cub is an excellent and versatile entry-level music program. It's easy to use, yet its simplicity belies its power the 12 tracks, together with the elegant graphic editor, provide ample resources for making music. QuickScore is a good counterpart to Cub, and if your notations! Needs are very simple, it will do the job.

IntroCAD Plus Beginning. . .again By Ron Bissett INTROCAD PLUS CONTAINS all the same features as the original IntroCAD (reviewed May '88, p. 18). The main screen is similar, and the same three plotter drivers and wide variety of printer drivers are available. IntroCAD Plus also fits Amiga World's summing up of the first version as “semi-pro CAD for rookies,” because, although this upgrade is greatly enhanced, it is not a professional CAD tool. What s New? The first improvement I noticed is the option for switching out of interlaced mode via a pull-down menu. The noninterlaced mode suffices for most drawing applications, and it is a must for long drawing sessions unless you have a flickerFixer (MicroWay) or a high-per- sistence monitor. Exploring the pull-down menus further, I found more changes and additions. There are now four options for saving drawings from the Project menu, and plotter and printer selection is handled outside the Plot and Print submenus. Through the Option menu, you can select English or metric rulers, turn the rulers on and off, and set the grid to English, metric, or binary. The EditPref selection presents three choices What You See Is What You Get, ByRegion, and Either for quickly redrawing the screen. These modes avoid redrawing the entire screen because each selects, in a different way, just certain areas to redraw. The Option menu also offers three bitplane choices for aiding in memory management. The Draw menu has a few additions, including Text, XYLine, and Hatch. The Text and Hatch options also now have their own menus. Although you can create 1680 separate hatches using combinations of 16 patterns, 8 preset spacing options, and various line types, I would like to see a definable spacing feature for more flexibility. Granted, you can also create custom hatch patterns using the IntroCAD Plus script language, which easily handles a wide range of hatch spacing, but an ability to define spacing through the pull-down menus would certainly be convenient. In a departure from the original version, which offered but a single font, IntroCAD Plus provides 16 fonts in a menu. You can draw fonts in several predefined sizes, custom fit them, or design your own fonts using the program's MkSFont utility which also lets you assign single objects or groups of objects to any console key. The Edit menu has several new functions that let you mirror or slant objects horizontally or vertically, transform them, arrange their positions in the drawing list, and, finally, assign them to different lavers. On the Level Another major feature is the 16 layers now available through the Layer menu. While this is not an overwhelming number, they give the program much-needed flexibility. Switching layers is a very simple matter. A handful of commands allows you to edit objects on specific layers or to hide layers. Choose Select in the Layers ?

One of the most useful new features, the ability to define macros and keyboard equivalents, makes the program very fast and convenient lot experienced users. To assign a command sequence to a key, just type the command path into the Console window and indicate the key. Still, the script-language option is even more useful. It lets you chain to- get her complex command sequences and assign them to a single key. Because the program initializes its settings by using standard script files, you can also use the script language to customize the initial screen and to set configuration options upon opening the program, IntroCAD Plus also supports Arexx ($ 50, William S. Hawes), the intertask- communication protocol that is slated for inclusion in Workbench 2.0. This means you can harness Arexx's math power to automatically create complex objects and As a very satisfied IntroCAD 2.0 user, I purchased the IntroCAD Plus upgrade. It provides many of the improvements I had hoped for; in fact, a spline feature is about the only thing that I could still want. The quality ol the printed drawings was an outstanding feature of the first IntroCAD versions, but there is a bug in the Plus print routine which causes terrible results. Until Progressive issues a fix, 1 am reduced to drawing in Plus, deleting unwanted layers, and then printing in
2. 0. This is a real inconvenience.
T. S. Hunter Arie, TX exchange IntroCAl) s database information with other Arexx-compatible programs. Whereas script commands execute pull-down menu commands, Arexx files can accept interactive input from IntroCAD’s Console window and perform error checking, default substitution, and interpretation of those arguments. For example, the Box.irx Arexx lilc that comes with IntroCAD Plus accepts up to four box parameters and allows for syntax interpretation of fractions (reading "1 +3 8” as 1.375) in specifying arguments. When you start an Arexx program from the Console window, a Pause Abort requester shows up on screen to let you easily halt Arexx-compatible programs that support this feature. More Support, Please! When 1 tried to exchange drawings with other software, 1 found that IntroCAD Plus saves only in IFF, IntroCAD, and Aegis Draw (Aegis Oxxi) formats, and accepts only IntroCAD-format files. I hope that the next upgrade allows file exchange with more Amiga CAD programs and, just as important, with CAD software in other computer formats. The present limited access severely limits IntroCAD and well-nigh precludes using it in professional applications. Another feature needing improvement WHY BUY AMI-11 YOU ASK?

While the selection of grids is impressive, the ability to control them is limited. Being able to specify the grid si .e is imperative for the exact placement of points. As it is, you can change a grid front the default to several finer or coarser levels, but if these preset values do not suit your needs, you must place the point or object using more complicated methods. Although you can set the screen si .e in the start-up script, if you find later that you want a larger viewport, your only option aside from using script functions is to move over several units using the Slide command, draw your object, and use the Zoom Full command. (T here is no option for zooming out.) I would like to see a command that allows you to break objects such as lines, circles, arcs, boxes, and so on, into smaller parts. In some situations this is an indispensable option. Only a few hurdles keep IntroCAD Bins from the professional realm. It is an excellent object-oriented drawing program, with many powerful and useful features. Because it is dependable, fast. YoliR TiRM IntroCAD Plus does indeed have some plusses: more and better tools, more layers, and a substantial selection of line types. It fails, however, by providing only two line thicknesses and no invisible line. Unlike its predecessor, this program cannot print out to a DeskJet printer. While you can get around this by saving a file to disk, loading it into IntroCAD, and then printing, doing so renders horizontal lines zig-zagged. Joe Coleman River Edge, NJ and fairly easy to learn and use, I recommend it for those wanting to experiment with structured drawing software.

Box 58804, Boulder, CO 80322-8804 27-page pictorial installation guide, a disk of software for testing the board, and a small plastic “boot” that supports one end of the installed board. I concur with the manual's recommendation that you invest in a heavy-duty power supply, especially as Commodore recommends that you add not more than two megs of RAM to a stock A500. (Thanks to its high demand for electricity, the EXP- 80004- can potentially bake a stock power supply faster than Betty Crocker with a microwave especially when fully populated.) I called Progressive for a recommendation on a power supply; they suggested Micro R Sc D’s Microline supply (S77.50), which worked without a hitch in my tests. Although opening up your A500 voids Commodore’s warranty on the com- puter, you need not be otherwise intimidated bv the prospect of installing the board. Doing so requires no more than a T-10 Torx driver and a small, flat-blade screwdriver; the easy-to-follow manual guides you nicely through the process. The key precaution to observe is to ground yourself while handling computer chips and other electronics, especially in the winter, when static electricity is at its peak. You begin by removing the case screws and disconnecting the keyboard, a small cable harness, and a grounding strap from the disk drive. Next, remove the screws securing the RE shielding, and, ZYOHR TLRM My roommate and I had the same experience on two different computers with two different boards. My two-meg EXP-80004- worked fine with AmigaDOS 1.2, but did not like 1.3. Using it with Sculpt-Animate 4D caused crashes when rendering, and all the other graphics programs I used with it crashed within four minutes. I tried upgrading the power supply, but that did not solve the problem. A Progressive representative told me that the company was having the same trouble and that I should wait for AmigaDOS
2. 0 to come out. After much wrangling with the dealer, Progressive offered to take the board back for credit. Kevin Anderson 1ms Angeles, CA Medium-res animations that load properly into DeluxePaint on a one-meg machine do not finish loading on my EX P-8000 +-equipped A500. Dennis Chenier Portland, OR using the standard screwdriver, pry the four metal tabs into an upright position so that the shielding slips out. Carefully pry the 68000 chip from your motherboard and press the dislodged chip into its adaptor on the EXP- 8000 4-, trying not to bend any pins. Paste the “boot” on the bottom of the EXP-80004- for support, and connect a jumper for the 68881 co-processor option to pin 31 of the computer’s Gary chip. Now place the EXP-80004- board into the slot where the 68000 once resided. Be warned this requires a considerable amount of pressure, muttered oaths, and perspiration. Then plug in the monitor and power supply, power up, and test the system using the supplied software. If everything works, turn the system off and reassemble your machine. Use Only as Directed Because my machine was already equipped with Commodore’s A501 memory expander, the addition of the eight- meg EXP-80004- gave me nine full megabytes of RAM! The system worked adequately with a host of software, including word processors, games, and so on. It crashed mightily, however, when I used the brush options in graphics packages such as DeluxePaint 111 (Electronic Arts) and Digi-Paint 3 (NewTek). Curious, I installed the board in another A500. 1 experienced the same problems. Lou Wallace, Amiga World's Senior Editor, Technology, tested the unit on his A500 and encountered no such trouble. He found another pitfall, however: The board did not work with Progressive’s hard-drive system, The Vault, which is installed on his machine. When he called the company to report this, a representative told him that traces on some boards have been known to interfere with auto- config devices on the expansion bus. Progressive suggested he exchange the EXP-8000 4- through his dealer or through the company. To rule out such variables as human error, misinterpreted instructions, too much or too little coffee, and so on, Lou and I took turns installing the board on yet another A500. On this machine, we both found that it would not work with brush options. Finally, I installed another EXP-8000 + this one populated with two megs of RAM in the original machine. 1 encountered the same problem. At a loss as to why it worked with only one out of four Amigas, I went to the source, posing as someone who had just purchased the board. A Progressive representative assured me that the EXP- 80004- is compatible with 75-90% of A500 motherboards, and that if a customer finds the board incompatible or unreliable, the company will modify or replace it so that it will work. 1 wish I could say that all went well, but must conclude instead that the EXP- 80004- represents a sizable investment in a peripheral that may or may not work with your computer. My solution is simple: For the price of an A500 and an eight-meg board, buy an Amiga 2000. ? I went through two different four-meg EXP-8000 4- boards. The first kept causing the system to crash. Progressive replaced it with a board that caused crashes only occasionally until I added a Super Agnus chip. Then the screen went wild and the computer buzzed. I sent that board back, and when Progressive returned it, 1 discovered that the pins were bent. Even after Progressive straightened out pins, though, it caused the system to crash or freeze when running Broadcast Titler and TV*Text, especially in Medium- and Hi-res modes. Progressive claimed that the Super Agnus chip was the culprit. A new power supply made no difference, and Progressive finally gave me a refund. I used the refund to buy Spirit’s external X-RAM unit, which works perfectly. Harold Beauchamp Bay City, MI SHARP ANNOUNCES ANOTHER BREAKTHROUGH IN COLOR SCANNING. THE JX-100.

A-Sound 2.0 is a fast, feature-filled program that sports a friendly, intuitive interface and a host of powerful tools that let you do sophisticated sound manipulation. Its only major drawback is that it is monophonic and as such lacks the stereo features of the leading editors.

The Net Effects A-Sound offers 16 sample buffers (tracks), between which you can cut, paste, copy, replace and mix. It also provides such useful and interesting audio effects as Reverse, Fade, Echo, Double Track (delay), Amplify, Attenuate, Chop, Disguise, Low Pass, Comb-and-Click filter, Frequency Double and Halve, Invert, and Subtract. Most of these are found in other sample editors, but a few may surprise you. For instance, Disguise applies unusual modulation to alter a vocal quality and yet keep the voice intelligible (great for reproducing alien conversations), while Chop yields an odd undervvater-speech effect. Graphic editing functions and waveform displays are modest (you get none of the real-time frequency displays you'll find in high-end editors), and yet the I like A-Sound 2.0. My main complaint is that it does not work with my digitizing hardware, Perfect Sound. Delta- ware does not sell hardware to go with A-Sound. It does sell plans for making Perfect Sound work with A-Sound 2.0, but Fve been unsuccessful with them. A-Sound lias about a dozen features (such as echoing and reverbing) for manipulating sound files that programs like AudioMaster II and the Perfect Sound software do not offer. It also has about 24 buffers (AudioMaster limits you to about four) so that you can keep sound files in memory and easily work between them.

Templicity Help for organizing the essentials By Loren Lovhaug W HEN ASKED W HY we bought a personal computer, many of us follow up our first responses (graphics or music composition, perhaps) with such reasons MUSIC SOFTWARE, Inc. 100 Crescent Road Suite 1B, Needham MA 02192 Dr.T’s "M" Templicity 2.0, by The Sterling Connection, can greatly reduce the time and effort involved in using your spreadsheet for specialized purposes. It is a collection of over 100 ready-to-use templates. Sterling offers the set in four Amiga spreadsheet formats: Analyze! (Micro-Systems Software), MaxiPlan (Intuitive Technologies), Superplan (Precision Software), and VIP Professional (ISO Marketing), each sold separately. The Spreadsheet Five The templates are divided into five sections: Small Business, Real Estate, Personal Finance, Household, and Miscellaneous. I am impressed with the depth and breadth of the array. Each category provides the selections you'd expect, such as payroll, inventory, and income and expense ledgers in the Small Business section; and amortization worksheets, rental-property analysis forms, and a closing-cost projection worksheet under Real Estate. Where Templicity really shines, however, is in its offering of relatively obscure but incredibly useful templates that cover analysis of IRA and non-IRA savings, depreciation, area and volume calculation of geometric forms, currency conversion, comparison of whole and term life insurance, cholesterol- and fat-intake analysis, and so on. The templates provide more than just a superficial treatment of the focus area and several include professional-level detail and considerations. In lact, none ol the several books 1 own that cover template creation and use even approach the variety, depth, and detail of’Tcmpli- city’s offerings. A Crowd Pleaser Both beginners and veterans can use Templicity in a number of ways. The program provides plug-and-play solutions for novices: Just load a template into your spreadsheet and enter data to get results. Templicity’s manual provides terse but adequate descriptions ol each template and the information you need to effectively apply the data. In addition, each template s rows and columns are deat h’ labeled, and Templicity provides a generous amount of 011-screen commentary and direction. Those wishing to study template creation will find this commentary helpful; in fact, the program is an ideal learning aid. As it provides numerous approaches for selling up templates and solving typical problems. Finally, advanced users will appreciate the depth and sophistication of the templates and will find them easy to modify and customize for more specialized purposes. Templicity is an excellent value, and 1 highly recommend it. Short of including illustrations along with the template descriptions. Especially for the more complex examples, I cannot imagine how the developer could improve the package. |usi as desktop publishers should not be without a generous collection of dip art, spreadsheet users should not be without this fine assortment of templates.

An introductory course on disk, TeleTutor instructs fledglings on the often frustrating processes of setting up a modem, accessing electronic bulletin boards (BBSs) and on-line networks, using archiving protocols, and understanding baud rates, stop bits, word lengths, and parity. It even comes with a terminal program, a simulated BBS environment, and a valuable and lengthy list of phone numbers for North American BBSs and network services. Get a Log Up Rather than rely on its scant, seven-page manual, the best way to familiarize your- Choose a topic; then learn, baby, learn. Self with TeleTutor is to boot the Workbench-equipped disk and load the program. Once you do so, you are greeted by a mildly confusing window that contains three drawers and two program icons labeled 512KStartup and ImegStartup. The only discernible difference between the versions for ‘A-meg and 1-meg systems is the lack of a litle screen on the 512K program. Both work line, multitask flawlessly, and seem to run at the same speed. Installing TeleTutor on a hard disk is no small feat for the neophyte. The disk- based HD_Iinstallation file nebulously states: "From the CL1 type ‘Execute TUTOR: HD Install TUTOR: I)IR:’ where DIR: is the volume name of the hard drive onto which you want to copy TeleTutor; e.g., DHO:, DHL, FFO:, etc.” It goes on to explain how to include an Assign statement in your startup-se- quence for TeleTutor. Another disk file called ‘‘last-minute” casually mentions . .the HD_Install program was not included as the TeleTutor 1.4 manual states. The command file is called 11 Deinstall and is located in the root directory of die TeleTutor main disk.” I never was able to get the HD_Install program to work because it didn’t recognize any partitions on my hard disk. I was, however, able to install the program by dragging icons and copying files including arp.library and hisoftbasic. Library through the CLI.

Stewart Springfield, MO, 65804 and-click menu offers 12 lessons (which discuss telecommunications topics), six sessions (in which you use the Vision- Comm terminal program), an Introduction, and a Final Thoughts selection. Choose a lesson, and the program presents a text file filled with explanations of various terms and procedures. For instance, the Modem Choice lesson provides a discussion of baud rates and explains that most Amiga owners prefer a 2400-baud Hayes-compatible unit because of price, performance, and compatibility features. The Protocols lesson describes many popular file-lransfer protocols and their uses. The program provides no way to test yourself on your new-found knowledge or to print the lessons. The session options provide a forum for using VisionComm and for accessing TeleTutor’s simulated BBS, SimRBS. With SimBBS, you can practice dialing, logging on, uploading and downloading files, chatting with others via on-line messages, and using all the features of a normal BBS without incurring longdistance phone charges. For added real- For someone who has never used a modem, getting online can be intimidating. I had read about telecommunications but did not know how to put all the pieces together. Using TeleTutor is like having a knowledgeable friend around to help you get started. The material is well organized and well written. It explains why things work as they do and gives practical advice there is even a section on BBS etiquette. My favorite part is the simulated BBS, where I was able to practice dialing, logging on, and transferring files. The only problem I had was in trying to copy a file I had downloaded: I couldn’t get the simulated CLI Copy command to work. Marjorie Mack Covington, IA ism, you can practice unarchiving compressed, downloaded files safely, using an imitation CLI. Unlike the imitation BBS and CLI TeleTutor provides, VisionComm is for real. .Although you can use it outside of TeleTutor, I heartily concur with Micro Momentum’s recommendation of “downloading or buying a better terminal program as soon as the opportunity arises.” VisionComm will help get you on-line, but any telecommunication program lacking such basic features as a menu option for dialing phone numbers ranks low in my book. Add to that the apologies for blank spaces in the pull-down menus that “Could not be fixed before release time” and reassurances that “The problem will not affect the operation of the program" and VisionComm appears more an afterthought than serious software. Thanks to TeleTutor’s list of BBSs, youTl have no trouble finding a nearby place from which to download a top-notch, public- domain terminal program, such as Access!, to replace VisionComm. Although Tele Tutor's meager user involvement prevents it from being a superb learning tool, it is thorough. Between the lessons, sessions, and SimBBS practice modes, you can learn enough of telecommunications to hold your own on ? COME JOIN OUR TEAM!

TFMX SOUNDTOOL Sounds like trouble By Dean Friedman I’M A REASONABLE guy. 1 try to give people including software developers the benefit of the doubt. Even so, I must warn you about TFMX Soundtool by Demonware Initronics. Don’t buy it. TFMX Soundtool is a compact music player and editor written in assembly TFMX's 16-color editor. Language and designed to be incorporated neatly into your own assembly, C, or BASIC programs. The concept is good. Such a player, with its own sample-manipulating tools, would be handy for use in your own applications. Commercial sequencers such as KCS (Dr T’s) and Music X (Microillusions) are inappropriate for this task they are just too big and will not interface easily within another application. Currently, software companies that in- corporate sound in their programs either write their own player programs or license someone else’s. TFMX is the first commercial offering of a programmers music player for the Amiga. Too bad it’s so awful. Unconventional This program has more bugs than the American embassy in Moscow. I spent more time rebooting after crashes than 1 did selecting menu items. And that’s after the company replaced my first copy, which did not work at all. Whatever a program’s virtues, there is simply no excuse for releasing commercial software in this pitiful condition. Vs for the user interface. . .there isn’t one! Pull-down menus? Standard Amiga requesters? Familiar window tools and useful icons? Forget it. TFMX disregards any and every convention used in Amiga applications, including programming languages, text editors, and compilers. .And the manual is no help.

The manual explains that Hex makes less work in typing. Huh? If you're very careful not to crash the program (luck also has a lot to do with it) you can enter up to 128 musical patterns in 8 tracks. You can also manipulate up to 256 samples and apply effects such as vibrato and portamento as they play back. A Record mode lets you input notes, in real time, from the computer keyboard.

Some products we are looking at for upcoming issues are: ADAPT (Lake Forest Logic) AE 3.5" HD Drive (Applied Engineering) Auto Prompt (DigiSoft) BBSdb (Phalanx Software) CynusEd Professional 2 (ASDG) gram works! .And the demonstration songs are great the developers obviously know something about music and programming. This is frustrating, because if the programmers had designed a usable interface and cleaned up the innumerable bugs, this would be a useful package that I could heartily recommend. As it is, 1 can recommend it only with serious reservations to the most stalwart and desperate of programmers, stuck under a tight project deadline, whose only other choice would be to write a player from scratch. One last gripe is that the program comes with a copy-protect dongle that you must insert into the second joystick port before booting the program. While 1 find this annoying, I also think it’s DataLink 2000 (Applied Engineering) Dinosaur Discovery Kit (First Byte) DigiScape (Digital Landscape) FLO (Gramma Software) MicroTrader (MicroActive) McGee (Lawrence Productions) Pixel 3D (Axiom Software) SAS C 5.10 Development System (SAS Lattice) Scene Generator (Natural Graphics) Synthia II (The Other Guys) amusing, as 1 judge the likelihood of anyone wanting to pirate copies of this program as very small. If TFMX were a public-domain offering, I might have more generous things to say about it. Because Demon ware charges for this program, however, the company has a responsibility to provide quality. To sum up my feelings about TFMX, I'd trigger an IFF sample of a Bronx cheer. TFMX Soundtool Demonurare Irntronics Inc. 12301 SAV. 132 Court Miami, FL 305-255-9302 $ 79.50 No special requirements.

The PD Prospector Follow Nevada Tim ’s electronic excavations on the Amiga networks for the latest gems in public-domain software. Compiled by Tim Walsh Following are the recent programs of greatest popularity according representing the major telecommunication networks. File numbers to the number of downloads as well as correspondence with sysops and library locations are included for quick reference. People Link FMSDISK2.LZH (AmigaZone file 23448) Simulates floppy disk on an Amiga equipped with a hard disk without the need for making a new partition. ROADROUTE15.LZH (AmigaZone file 23636) Jim Butterfield’s trip planner, known as RoadRoute, version 1.5. The file comes complete with roads, mileage and driving times. TEXTPLUS.LZH (.AmigaZone file 23637) Version 2.0 of Text Plus, an Amiga word processor. Locate a copy of Fred Fish Disk 359 if you’d like a German version. 24-BITCONF.LZH (AmigaZone file 23880) Edited transcript of a 24-bit graphics conference held on People Link 7 11 90. Harv Laser, Senior Chairman of American People Link’s AmigaZone states that the file on 24-bit graphics technolog)- (24-BIT- CONF.LZH) is a favorite download, because the information it contains “comes from the people who are developing 24- bit Amiga graphics.” CompuServe LZ081.LZH (Library 4, Amiga'Tech) Probably the fastest of all versions of LHARC, a file-compression and archiving utility. FASTBL.LZH (Library 13, Amiga l ech) Enables the Amiga’s blitter to work faster. TRKS13.LZH (Library 14, AmigaTech) TrackSalve 13 both saves unreadable tracks and salvages tracks that DISKSALV cannot read. SETCPU.LZH (Library 14, AmigaTech) Version 1.6 of Dave Haynie’s SetCPU utility performs useful functions on accelerated Amigas. Allows KickStart to take advantage of fast 32-bit memory in 68020 030 accelerator boards. According to Amiga Forum assistant sysop Betty Clay, two popular recent uploads in addition to those listed above are CDTV. LZH and VIEW30.TXT. The first contains press releases of Commodore’s still-unreleased CDTV. The second file is a report by an Amiga 3000 owner, telling his tale of woe on software compatibility. Genie FV201.LZH (File 8709) Version 2.01 of Jonathan Potter’s Full View text and IFF viewer program. Gadgets at the bottom of the screen make for added convenience, SPRINT20.LZH (File 8756) Sprint version 2.0 creates a Workbench-based control panel for selecting multiple print options, such as italics and underlining. A3000 COMMENTS.LZH (File 8767) A compressed text file stating views, questions and general comments on the Amiga
3000. V1RUSX401 .LZH (File 8778) Latest version (4.01) of Steve Tibbefs VirusX anti-virus utility. This new version prevents crashes on A2091-equipped systems. When it comes to recent uploads on Genie, my personal favorite is the FullView program (FV201.LZH, file 8709), which makes viewing documentation a breeze. It's packed with gadgets for loading, then scrolling through and printing documents. Provisions for viewing graphic screens, including HAM images, are also included. Prospector’s Perch: Navigating the Nets In the Interest of minimizing redundancy In the above list of files, I didn’t repeat any that are available on more than one of the networks. For instance, SetCPU is also available on People Unk as SETCPU.LZH, AmigaZone file 23547, and also on Genie as SETCPU 1.6.LZH, file 8631. Likewise, you'll find TrackSalve 13 listed on both Plink and Genie as TRACK- SALVE13.LZH, with the file numbers 23629 and 8560, respectively. Newcomers to the world of Amiga telecommunications might wonder why the “.LZH” extension appears on most of the above filenames. It simply Indicates a file compressed In Paolo Zibettl's LHARC format. Such files usually contain program, documentation, and ancillary files, and require that you have a copy of LHARC to uncompress them. Don't fret if you see a file listed here on, say, Genie, and you only possess a CompuServe account. Rather than needlessly pondering its availability on your network, use keywords for searching the recent upload directories. For example, If you're looking for a file or disk-arcing utility, try searching on the keyword ''ARC”. Most of the time you'll be able to find the right file in a matter of minutes. If you're Interested In establishing an account on any of these networks, here are the voice numbers to call to get under way: CompuServe: 800 848-8199 614 457-8650 In Ohio American People Link: 800 524-0100 Genie : 800 638-9636 The modem-less can send a SASE and $ 1 to Fred Fish to find out the availability of the above Amiga public domain programs on disk.
