I know that you like us are playing the waiting game. (And il you haven’t, the hotline to A W is 1-800-44 1-440-5 and ask Li for the Commodore update message.) It’s not that the waiting is uneventful. As we were going to press, the Commodore hearings resumed in the Bahamas and a few more pieces of the puzzle began to fall into place (see “Overscan,” p. 8, for the latest info reported directly from Nassau by .4II ). It's a shame, though, that this legal circus, up to this point, hasn't been taking place in the US. At least we could be entertained while we wait for results. 1 liink of it: live court-side proceedings airecl on the networks each day from 10 am to 2 pm, followed by commentary on PhilMauryOprah in the afternoon, capped off with Ted baiting the principals on Nightline and some final late-night jokes from Dave and Jay. (“Hey, what do Commodore Peary and Commodore Business Machines have in common? One discovered the North Pole and the oilier ran its marketing operations there.”) Okay, enough of that. I know at times this summer it seemed that we were the audience in a Samuel Beckett play waiting for Godot or Garbo or Groucho or somebody to walk on and resolve things. But the waiting should be over with soon. As we learned from our trip to Nassau last week, bids from at least a half-dozen players to acquire Commodore were on the table. Obviously, there's something of value licit* in the Amiga line and the dedicated Ami ora user base. And from even' indication we could track, a resolution to Commodore's mess is forthcoming. So. Let’s get ready to welcome the new force in the j Amiga community whomever it turns out to be and n encourage these folks to ramp up production of more AGA machines, more CD32s, and anything else they can get into the pipeline. And that’ll be the best incentive to spur the third-party developers to keep cranking out new software and peripherals. Despite being frustrated about delays and legal wrangling. I'm really delighted that multiple bids to acquire Commodore were on the table as this issue was going to press. My main advice to all these folks, however, is this: Dike this thing seriously, and if you don’t, then don’t get in the way. You’re a part of the solution (great) or a part of the problem (zip up your wallet and walk). This waiting period will soon be over. We’ve got work to do, damage to repair, and (as another resident of New Hampshire might have said) the Amiga still has plenty of miles to go before it sleeps.

By Denny Atkin isks are the Rosetta stone of computing. Without permanent clisk storage, all your hard work would disappear even* time you hit the Off switch. Computer novices often confuse the amount of disk storage with the amount of RAM in their system an easv mis- i * take to make, for both are measured in kilobytes (1024 bytes) or megabytes (1024 kilobytes, or over a million characters). Let’s look at some Amiga disk-form at basics to see how you can maximize operations on your system. FuiN with Formats The Amiga uses a very reliable and space-efficient method of storing data on disks; the disk format allows storage of 880K (or 1700K) on floppy disks, versus the 720K (or 1440k) allowed by MS-DOS computers. Unfortunately, the original version of this format traded speed for safety and storage. Reading a lloppy-disk directory was unbearably slow under earlv versions of AmigaDOS, and when the first hard drives were released, they weren’t dramatically faster than the floppies that they supplemented. AmigaDOS 1.2 sped things up a little, but it was the Fast FileSvstem (FFS) added in DOS 1.3 that gave hard drives a real speedup; Amiga-
I) OS 2.04 gave us the ability O J to use the FFS for floppies. As an added bonus. FFS uses all 512 bytes of a data block to store data, which gives a full SSOKon a floppy, versus the 837K available in the original file system. AmigaDOS 2.1 added the International format, which propcrlv sorts filenames even when they contain special characters. Then AmigaDOS
3. 0 brought more improvement by adding to the file system the new DirCache option, which directly addressed the slow directory- reads associated with Amiga floppies by caching directory information for quick access. (Note that selecting DirCache auto- matically selects the International mode as well.) Quick Tip If you install your own hard disk in an A1200 or A4000. You may find that some programs won’t work on FFS disks. This is due to a bug in the firmware of many IDE hard drives that causes problems when the Amiga tries to transfer large files. To fix this, load HDToolBox and select Partition Drive, followed by Advanced Options. Click the Change gadget and then change the value in the MaxTransfer gadget to 0x1ffe0. Select OK twice and exit HDToolBox. Now you can reinstall the problem programs and they'll work fine. If you’re running AmigaDOS 2.1 or later, vou have j an additional option: the Cross DOS file format, which is identical to that used by MS-DOS computers. 1 his formal should be used only for data that you intend to transfer to a PC or Macintosh, as it has a number of limitations -not the least of which is a filename limit of eight characters plus a three-character extension. We’ll take a look at Cross- DOS in depth in an upcoming column. Formatting for Compatibility So which disk format should you use? In almost all cases, you II want to use the Fast- FileSystem for hard drives, as it dramatically increases performance. Choose the International option if you want to use foreign characters in your filenames, hut J you'll maintain compatibility with older disk utilities if you forgo it. I wouldn't suggest using the DirCache DO O option on your hard drive, as director)’ scans are plenty fast on hard disks anyway, and DirCache can actually slow down some hard-disk operations. What about floppies? If you're creating a disk for wide distribution, such as for copying at a users’ group, you'll want to choose the original file system, which n «¦ can he read by any Amiga running anv version ol the n ; operating system. But if the disk is for use only by you or folks using the same (or later) version of the operating system, go ahead and choose i he FFS and DirCache options if they’re available under the version of the operating system you're using. For recoverable RAM disks like RAD:, using FFS will buy you only a small speed increase, but it's worth using because of the 5% increase in storage over the original file system. Command Syntax To see which file-system options are available on your Amiga, type FORMAT? And hit Return. Under Aini- gaDOS 3.0, which has the most options, you'll see DEVICE=DRIVE K A,NAME K A, OFS S,FFS SJNTL=INTERNATIONAL S,NOIIMTL= NON- ITERNATIONAL S,DIRCACHE Sf NODIRCACHE S,NOICONS S, QUICKS S: To abort die formal, simply press Enter. The minimum syntax for the command is FORMAT DRIVE dfO: NAME "Diskname" This will formal a disk using the default OKS (Original File System). All you need do is add the FFS, IN I L, and DIRCACHE options lo the end of the command lo specify a different format. Moreover, NOICONS causes the disk to be formatted without a Trashcan icon and director)'. For example, to format a drive using the FES and DirCache options, with no Trashcan drawer, type FORMAT DRIVE DFO: NAME "Diskname" FFS DIRCACHE NOICONS You can use a final option, Quick, when you're reformat- ting a previously formatted disk. In addition to being much lastcr, it’s a bit safer to use, as you can recover data from an accidentally quick- formatted disk bv using disk O utilities such as DiskSalv or Ami-Back l ools. ¦ Denny Atkin is an tali tor at OMNI Magazine and the author oj Denny Atkin's Best Amiga Tips and Secrets.

If nothing else, the turmoil at CBM has succeeded in bringing the Amiga community closer together unit)’ in adversity. While much of the Amiga- specific dialog consisted of rumor and speculationf the experience of sharing it has served an important purpose. The many sy sops who maintain the Amiga areas on the nets, however, deserve praise for generally keeping items of substance isolated from rumors not an easv task. Hard facts con- cerning the fate of the com- puter are as rare as a tasty meal at a burger joint. (See
p. 8 for the latest information A W has gathered at press time.) Many messages have been posted by companies committed to supporting the market a useful and positive gesture. One tiling's for certain: Whether rumor or fact, all these messages make for great reading, and there has probably never been a better time for using your Amiga to access a net. All (Not) Quiet on the Amiga Front We all may know more about the CBM situation bv the time j you read this; meanwhile, I’ll list specific gathering points on the nets where you can soothe your anxieties. The developer s long-time favorite, BIX, provides an interesting series of Amiga areas. A quick visit to a number of the developer areas such as amiga.dev, amiga.cert, and amiga.com reveal information not readily available elsewhere. Some of the messages found in these areas are from former Commodore insiders and commercial developers, and are certainly worth reading. C lompuSene’s gat 1 tcring point of choice has been the AmigaLser forum, under menu selection ‘5, entitled “Hot News and Rumors,” The many sysops in the User forum ensure that when an official announcement is made. You’re most likely to see it there first. Most of the I oiks who frequent the forum know that, and I’m no exception to die rule, since it's where I check in when someone asks me for the latest Amiga news scoop. It’s clear why AmigaL ser ranks as the most popular of the (bur Amiga-specific forums on CIS. I ViVthBC* Sct-mw [- bavut S* *u*nt a at £l

* tART Delphi’s Amiga areas are not nearly as lively (or as aggressively maintained) as Do 4 * those of most other networks, but its access to the Internet’s Ami net site affords it a goodly portion of the Commodore chitchat. With few exceptions, however, the information that's posted there is previously published news gathered from other sources such as CompuServe. Next on the list. Portal gathers all the timely information from the Comp. Sys.Amiga area on the y O Usenet and posts it for all to read. It’s an effective system, broken down into 18 directories for quick reference, and has worked well for quite some time. Elsewhere on Portal, there’s an Amiga- specific general Q&A area with a subarea entitled “Pssst...Rumors" that posts some factual information, but most of what you hncl there concerning the Commodore situation originates elsewhere. No discussion ol Amiga gathering places would he complete without a mention of Genie’s efforts to keep Amiga users united and informed in their time of need. You may, however, want to brace vourself for a 4 wild ride, as there are long commentaries from many commercial developers and writers of stature in Genie’s Bulletin Board Category 15. N j A visit to this corner of cyberspace reveals daily postings from former Commodore employees (including Genie’s own Amiga Roundtable sysop), industry notables, and an occasional magazine editor. The dialog luns rampant here, but it's the interactive, personally involved nature of these “assorted rani- hlings" that distinguishes this Amiga area from the pretenders. There are so many long message files, in fact, that chief sysop Deb Christensen had to perform several excisions to remove overstulted topics and replace them with clean ones. Whether you choose BIX, CompuServe, Delphi, Genie, or Portal as your resource of Amiga news, you really can’t go wrong. Each serves as a users’ group of sorts, a place that'll make von feel better V to know you’re not alone. Room For One Let’s see if I can squeeze in an online lile tidbit in the remaining space. Most Amiga users turn to that old standby, DiskSpeed, when they need to measure storage device performance. An alternative program worthy of consideration has been out for quite some time: SeckSpeed V37.12 by Richard Waspc, Unlike data- transfer programs such as DiskSpeed, SeekSpeed measures the seek and read times of most storage devices by performing a series of tests. It opens an attractive interface on the- Workbench and makes a nice complement to any collection of disk utilities, including DiskSpeed.

Legal constraints concerning the proceedings at the current time prevented our sources from revealing the identity of anv of the bidders. J Amiga World, however, was able to speak with the trustee appointed by the Bahamian Supreme Court to administer Commodore’s liquidation, as well as with representatives of several "interested parties” in the proceedings. Indications seem very clear that liquidation will now proceed “at full speed” and a resolution is imminent. Amiga World expects that a decision in the matter announced in the US, not the Bahamas will likely be made by the lime you read this.

NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS In a closed-door session of the Bahamian Supreme Court, proceedings for the liquidation of at least parts of the Commodore operation resumed on Thursday, June 9. While the press was barred from these hearings, an Amiga World reporter present in Nassau, Tim Walsh, was able to gather the findings presented below. .As further details become available, TIT will report them in next month's issue and post them both online and to our special telephone hotline (1-800-441-4403). During the last week of May, it was reported that negotiations were under way between Commodore and the Korean electronics giant, Samsung, about the acquisition of Commodore as part of the liquidation settlement. A temporary postponement in those proceedings was announced several days later. New hearings were convened on June 9, at which time a number of bids (perhaps a half dozen or more) regarding the acquisition of Commodore reportparty-devclopers also revealed that most companies were willing to “sit tight” while the situation was being resolved. Again, as further developments in the situation may have taken place after this issue went to press, please check with our hotline number (1-800-441-4403 ask for extension 365 or the “Commodore update line” for new information).

Caution: Mac Crossing Perfect Presentations Just as our Mac emulation article, "The Amiga User's Mac Survival Kit," (see p. 22) was going to press, we received word of a new software link, CrossMAC (S149.95) from Consu tron. If you have an Amiga hiyh-density drive, you can access 1.44MB Mac high-density floppies with CrossMAC. You can also access A-Max- and Emp!ant-formatted disks (with no additional hardware) and 800K low- density Mac disks with an emulation card. CrossMAC can be configured to access virtually any Mac storage device that can plug into the Amiga (SyQuest or Bernoulli drives, Mac CD-ROM drives, and A-Max partitions). It requires AmigaDOS 2.0 or later. (RS 131.) Get in the right “frame of mind.” With the image-compositing program, you can take control ofToasterPaint or Opal- Paint to combine, resize, and arrange Framestores and RGB frames into an attractive presentation. Its Power Templates function lets you select from about 40 pre-defined templates, which you can tailor to your needs (or use to generate new ones). You can also create custom elements such as beveled bars or lower- tbirds. Choose from about 20 different styles (including antique, marble, silver, or wood) to frame your images. Ten textures and fills are included to add to the background, foreground, or custom-designed elements. (RS 128.)

News and New Pro d u cts Designer Home You can build your dream house with help from Amprodex's new 3-D object collections for LightWave: Homes (S99.95) and Interior Design III (S49.95). Homes consists of four models of houses, each of a different style (one-story, traditional, lakeside, and ranch), complete with exteriors, interiors, and movable doors and windows. But, what's a house without furnishings? Interior Design III can outfit your model homes' offices with more than 50 furniture objects including, shelves, computers, bookshelves, desks, file cabinets, and more. Earlier sets in the Interior Design series offer objects for living rooms, bedrooms, dining rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. In addition, the Interior Construction collection features light fixtures, doors, windows, stairs, and more. (RS 130.) LightWave Stands Alone For animation bulls who like their software plain white rather than toasted, LightWave 3D (formerly only available bundled with NewTek's Video Toaster) now comes in a stand-alone version ($ 695). The new package (incorporating the LightWave Modeler module) offers users a complete 3-D modeling, rendering, and animation system without the Toaster “dongle.” (RS 120.) 0 E R II E A R I) UPDATE SCAN If it's time to retire your Mega-Midget Racer accelerator from CSA, don't throw it away! CSA is honoring trade-ins of the older boards for discounts on some of its faster accelerators, such as the 40 4 Magnum, Twelve Gauge, and Derringer 030. MacroSystemUS (RS 127} has discontinued the distribution of products from MacroSystem GmbH in Germany, including the Retina, Vlab, Toccata, and Wolf Faust's Studio printer drivers.

Seven Seas Software's new image processor and spe- cial-effecis generator lets you produce frames for animations and provides a storyboard-preview mode. It also offers background textures; montage and collage capabilities; bi-res zooms, lades, and dissolves; plus chroma keying and a whole range of manipulation effects, including Mandlebrot distortions, flips, Stereoscopic Software MegageM has developed the ideal match for its AmiVRPro headset SPX- Pro SPXSync. The software lets you use two Amigas to drive a 3-D display like the VRPro. Any two Amigas will do connected via their joystick ports they don't even have to be the same model or CPU speed. One Amiga creates the right-eye view, while the other generates the left-eye view. The SPXSync interface ensures that as a slideshow or animation is displayed, both machines stay in sync and display the proper frames to maintain the 3-D image.

Sync is essentially an inexpensive parallel- processing solution to the problem of creating fast, fluid 3-D animation and it's the first of its kind that I've seen. SPXPro is the dual-Amiga version of AmiVR's SPX software. AGA-enhanced with about 60 additional commands, SPXPro can run a slideshow of IFF images, load color palettes, and rotate 3-D objects, in addtion to providing all the features of the existing SPX language that ships with AmiVR and Stereo- Pro systems (see review on p. 12).

Power Networking Joining the ranks ol the computer professional? Remember this bit of career advice: Networking is lhe key. CSANET ($ 199) is CSA’s inexpensive Arenet networking solution, which claims to operate ten times faster than ParNKT or AppleTalk. It was developed in conjunction with Interworks, (maker of KIAN-DFS Ethernet software), which will provide any software upgrades. CSA’s Twelve Gauge or 40 4 Magnum accelerators can be upgraded to use the package. In addition, A2000, A3000, and A4000 users who don’t own the accelerator boards can access CSANLT with a Zorro slot hoard from CSA. (RS 121.) R EVE A-Max IV Multitasking Macintosh- emulation system.

Von can access peripherals on the Amiga serial and parallel ports, as well, so you can use your Amiga printer and modem on the Mac side and still leave the A-Max serial ports free for MIDI. Keep in mind that AppleTalk Remote Access requires you to connect the modem though the A- Max side and not the Amiga side. Printers still require printer drivers, but the Mac offers a full range of commercial and PD drivers. Amigas equipped with SANA-II-compatible networking cards should work line with Mac LocalTalk or EtherTalk. 11 you upgrade from A-Max 11H-, the setup involves pulling and replacing a chip no easy matter. After several hours of tweaking and one reinstallation, I got the emulation running properly, with flawless multitasking. The Amiga side is only a hotkey click away, and many processes run faster than on an equivalent Mac. Using System 7.0 and 7.1, I tested Mac productivity software, including QuarkXpress, PhotoShop
2. 0 (2.5 didn't work), Quick Time, and about two dozen others, and they all ran without a hitch. Games and programs that flagrantly break Apple’s programming rules may not work, though a surprising number of them did run with the aid of the optional video modes called Optimized and Paranoid. Graphics also work well, with a stock non-AGA Amiga displaying the Mac emulation in 16 colors, an AGA Amiga in 256 colors, and a 24-bit graphics board in 256 to 16 million colors. Graphics emulation is noticeably slower than on a Mac, and you can set the display to monochrome. A 24-bit graphics board speeds up the graphics considerably, but the display is still slower than on a fast Mac.

Fortunately, it still accesses low- density Mac disks through an included program that reads low-density disks to a special hard-drivc File that is normally accessed from the Mac desktop. While not as simple as just inserting a disk, it’s easy to adjust, and far better than not being able to read the disks at all. A-Max IV reads high-den si tv Mac
o disks, and virtually all current Mac software ships on such disks. Amiga high- density drives are now widely available, and are standard equipment on A4000s. As long as you have CrossDOS mounted, the high-density drive determines the type of disk inserted. A new feature allows transfers from the Amiga clipboard to the Mac clipboard. For disk transfers, a custom Mac program lets you select from file-translation options such as text, MacPaint, MacBinary, and PostScript, and then transfer the files hack and for th between any devices available to the two platforms. Both Mac and Amiga sides can read PC disks, which can then serve as an intermediary disk format. A-Max IV can also create bootable Mac harcl- drive partitions on Amiga drives, and can read Mac- formatled partitions created by both A-Max 1I-F and Emplant (Utilities Unlimited). It can make Mac-for matted hard files within Amiga-formatted hard- drive partitions, but these are slow and useful only as backups. External Mac hard dr ives and other SCSI devices like CD-ROM drives, scanners and primers can be accessed directly through the Amiga’s SCSI port. (A4000 owners will have to add a SCSI card.) M*eHD2 A-Max IV running Microsoft Vford with an inserted color picture Michael Drinks' Microleague Plush Apartment Mac* sound works properly through hooked to the Amiga, although some audio paused a few times, and the sound in some games that break Mac rules doesn't always behave properly. The Mac side reads the Amiga clock for time and date. Memory handling is excellent, freeing up as much memory as possible for the emulation. For all this power, A-Max IV makes very modest demands on the .Amiga. It has low system requirements, needing only a 68020 or faster CPU with at least 4MB of memory, a Zorro slot, a hard drive, and AmigaDos 2.1 or later. No FPU or MMU is necessary. On the Mac side, you'll need System 7.0 or higher and a pair of 128K Mac ROMs the least expensive and most widely available form of Mac ROMs. The manual is comprehensive and well written, but rather technical.

2. 0 3.0 compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Accelerator compatible. Installation: Easy. Minimum system: Composite display (Amiga monitor or television). AmiVR requires an Amiga with composite output or encoder genlock. Recommended system: 2 +MB. 3-D liquid-crystal shutter glasses. If the number of films, books and games with the word “virtual” in the title is any indication, virtual reality is here in a big way. The easiest way to get a piece of the VR action for voursell is to add a pair of 3-D glasses to your Amiga, and I don't mean the old red blue O 7 glasses worn to view “3-D" movies in days of yore. Instead. MegageM now offers you liq- uid-crvstal shutter glasses that generate a realistic 3-D image when used to watch an Amiga interlaced display, having a left-eye view on odd lines and a right-eye view on even lines. The shutters toggle on and off 30 times per second, so that die left eye sees only the odd lines and the right eve sees only the even. The re- O J 4 suit is breathtaking. As my four-year-old Composite or RGB: Take Your Pick MegageM currently markets two varieties of 3-D glasses: AmiVR and StereoPro. AmiVR is designed as a video-oriented system; it plugs directly into the composite output of your video source, be it an Amiga or VCR. The composite signal tells the glasses how to synchronize to the 3-D imagery. Though StereoPro uses the same glasses, it plugs directly into the Amiga’s joystick port. Your choice depends on your needs. If you have an A30Q0 or A4000 (which lack composite video output), choose the StereoPro. On the other hand, if you plan to watch 3-D movies on your IV or dump Amiga 3-D images to videotape, then go with the more flexible AmiVR system. AmiVR comes in a lunch-hox sized case with a pair of glasses, an interface box, one disk, a single page of instructions,and a 3-D videotape. The interface supports up to eight sets of glasses, so this doesn't have to be a solo experience. The terse page of instructions tells you everything you need to know about configuring the system, with hints for optimum viewing. The disk contains a hodgepodge of utilities, games, and pictures a good starter set of 3-D tools. The glasses wcigli but a few ounces easy to wear without fatigue. Depending on the material viewed, the 3-D effect is quite good, and one’s ability to experience the 3-D seems to improve over time. I recommend a dark viewing room for best effect. More Than Just Fun? I recently completed a project in which I had to render several hundred frames in Vista Pro 3 and create a 3-D fly- through. The result was exhilarating. YistaPro, which can build separate eye views automatically, begs to be used in full 3-D. Both AD Pro and Imagemaster R t are capable of converting these left and right pictures into interleaved stereo images, making at least one of these image processors a necessity lor serious work with AmiVR. Included on the utility disk isSPX, a 3- D rendering language that provides rudimentary commands for moving wireframe objects about a 3-D environment. While you can use SPX to visualize simple scenes in vibrant 3-D, it is strictly an Arcxx scripting language; you’ll find no graphic interface here. If Arexx doesn’t intimidate you. You can cook up some impressive animations in SPX. If, on the other hand, you never mastered Basic, this tool won’t do you much good. AmiVR and its joystick-ported cousin, StereoPro, are good values if you are interested in experimenting with the virtual world of 3-1). Put on a pair and dive into the world of cybersight.

2. 0 3.0 compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Minimum system: SunRize AD 1012 or AD516 sound card, 68030 or faster accelerator, hard drive. Recommended system: Same as minimum. Upgraded software for the SunRize AD516 and AD1012 sound cards. The Amiga audio market remains alive and relatively healthy, as demonstrat- j f ed by SunRize’s update of the StudiolG software for its popular sound and music samplers. Originally released for the 16- hit AD516 board. Studio 16 in its latest version now also supports the AD 1012, SunRize’s 12-bit mono audio board. Sound Investments This Studio 16 3.0 software upgrade may seem expensive, but the improvements are well worth the price. (For a full description of the Studio 1(5 system, see "Reviews,” Jan, '93, p. 18.)The most notable addition is a lime-line-based Cue List Editor. This module, containing transport controls for recording and playback, provides virtual tracks into which you can drop samples for editing and cued playback. This replaces both the Transport and CueList modules from previous versions. Imum of a 68030 accelerator, as much system RAM as possible, and a large dedicated hard drive or partition. Each track minute of 16-bit audio at CD-qual- ity rate (44.1 Khz) requires 5MB. The faster the access time of the hard drive, the more tracks of simultaneous playback are possible. To the end of optimizing hard-disk performance, SunRiz.e has begun including the BigBlocks utility. This reformats each partition allocated for storing digital audio, increasing its logical block size Kach track can contain samples or Arexx commands cued to a precise SMPTE (L IT) time-cocle location (both hoards boast time-cocle input ports), allowing you to use Studio 16 3.0 in a video post-production environment. You can move and place tracks and commands in time, using a drag-and- drop style that makes precise positioning easy. Fades and cross-fades (with full control over rate, level, and volume curve) of individual samples are easily adjustable with either the mouse or keyboard. Panning control is available for the stereo board, the AD516. You can play back and rerecord (ping- pong) any or all of the individual tracks onto two new tracks: integral and nondestructive mixdown. The .ARexx commands can operate on samples and more importantly control external programs, with the short list including such heavy hitters as the Video Toaster, Scala, Bars&Pipes Professional, T-Rexx Professional, and the Personal Animation Recorder. Studio 16 can thus become the control center for an integrated multimedia extravaganza, as well as being able to respond to external control through its Arexx port. The CueList, useful in all sorts of applications, is quite easy to operate, having clear documentation and an excellent tutorial. Worthy Improvements Other new features include external Mil>I-controlled mixer support (JL Cooper Fader Master or Peavey PC 1600, for example), automated Punch In and Out and mixing, and multiple- card support. Hardware requirements are stringent for best performance of the Studio 16 system: It demands a minand thereby reducing seek times. Stu- diol6 is vciy hard-disk-intensive software; frequent backups and regular disk maintenance are necessary to ensure trouble- free use. Also included in the Studio 16 software package are the latest versions of Commodore’s HDToolbox (v40.4) and FastFileSystem (v40.1), which streamline and boost hard-clisk performance.

The new Cue List makes it possible to lay out all the sound effects for a video piece to precise time-code positions and cue them to video in one pass. The new version also greatly simplifies and facilitates the task of using Studio 16 as a digital multitrack recorder for professional applications. With the release of SunRi .e’s Stereo Digital I O board the DD524 a totally digital-audio signal path is now possible on your desktop.

2. 0 3.0 compatible. Hard drive required. Not copy protected. Accelerator compatible. Minimum system: 1MB, hard drive, fax modem. Recommended system: Same as minimum. Fax-modem software. It s no surprise that your Amiga is capable of outperforming many dedicated fax machines. You can lay out a fax form in your favorite word-processing or page-layout software. You can schedule late-night faxing, when phone rates are cheaper. And you can view the faxes beforehand, saving paper costs by sending only those you select. These advantages and more are provided by TrapFax, a software program with which you can send and receive faxes using your Amiga and any compatible Class-2 fax modem. Faxing via Amiga TrapFax uses a modular approach to creating, sending and receiving, managing, and priming your faxes. After you install the program, it must be configured, which consists of entering
o o the phone number and name associated with your fax modem, as well as the directories for storing the incoming and outgoing faxes. With default options already in place, the setup takes little time. You create faxes in the program of your choice. When you select (via an icon) the print option of the program, the document is sent to the TrapFax printer driver instead of your printer device. Once the fax is created, a requester appears asking for the recipient’s name and phone number. You can send the fax immediately, or at a specified later time. If these fields are used, TrapFax attempts to send the fax each day at the selected time until it is successful. That’s the F.ax, Jack You can manually enter the fax-recipient data or select it from the phone book, which lists the names and phone numbers of people lo whom you regularly send faxes. You can add or delete entries at any time. TrapFax also allows you to send a fax to multiple numbers, selected either from the phone book or by entering them manually in the To field. You can either delete your faxes after transmission or save them in the Sent drawer for later retrieval. The program contains a module, the Fax Queue, that manages matters by displaying the Faxes received, previously sent, and to be sent. The current status of any call is shown here, and you can add new faxes to the queue and edit the destinations, ATFaxView option allows you lo view faxes by zooming in and out and scrolling around the page. You can also view multiple-page faxes and convert faxes to IFF format for importing into paint programs. Moreover, you can direct a fax to your printer, using options that adjust the scaling, print density and aspect ratio, center the fax on the page, and tailor it to lit. Send Again TrapFax comes with a well-written manual explaining all the functions of the program and including a fair number of screenshots for reference. I he manual further tells you how to use TrapFax with TrapDoor, a FidoNet mailer also from TrapDoor Development. In addition, you will find information on using the program with Arexx, as well as lips on creating good-looking (axes from a variety of Amiga software. A few minor problems haunt the program. At first, accustomed as 1 was lo other fax programs that use solitary interfaces, 1 found the modular approach a bit confusing. Also, some of the labels on the various parameters in the program seem somewhat obscure until you get used to them. Overall, however, TrapFax does a good job in letting your Amiga outperform a stand-alone fax machine. Dave Thomas Swipes! Byrd's Eye Software, $ 149 A4000 only.

That software never materialized, and the Toaster’s canned effects became quite commonplace. Since then, each new release has brought new ef- feels and more banks into which you 4 can load them. W hen the wow factor wears off, however, you're saddled with a limited number of canned effects, most of which are of limited use to videographers. Swipes! Where there’s a market, enterprising developers like Bvrd’s Eye Software jump in to fill the niche. Its latest offering. Swipes!, does not allow you to create your own effects, but instead adds to the arsenal of available DVE choices. Unlike most Toaster DVE expansion kits, Swipes! Makes extensive use of both full- color animation and transparency in its DVEs. Doing so requires an Amiga 4000- based Toaster setup, but serious users of the Toaster Switcher are already using A4000s anyway. R E V I E W S Swipes! Arrives on five high-density disks with a custom installer program. Installation requires 20MB of free hard-disk space to accommodate the (54 effects. Once installed, loading project number 148 into the Switcher fills both banks A and B with the new effects. The majority are transitions of various kinds. Some examples include soft edge swirls, sweeping stone, metallic, and translucent colored bars. You’ll also Find a couple of blobby organic transitions and a wall of flames. Some effects even include cued audio effects. Although a few border on gimmickry', they match the quality of the D Ts supplied with the Toaster 4000. Byrd’s Eye has clearly taken advantage of LightWave and the Switcher’s alpha support. However, one effect in which a passenger jet flies at and over the camera as the other channel is wiped in suffers from some aliasing on the wings, making it a hit less desirable to use. A particular favorite of mine is a 30-second countdown timer (displayed in the lower-right corner of the screen) that can adjust its start time by pulling on the T-bar. While I’m still waiting for a full-featured DVT editor creator for the Toaster Switcher, I'll settle for this large library of canned effects. Those provided in the Swipes! Collection do a great job, and I’ll be interested to see the next batch of DVEs from Byrd’s Eye. ToasterFX Great Valley Products’ ImageFX continues to be one of the most versatile and functional image-manipulation packages available for the Amiga. Its built-in support for other devices and image formats has been outstanding. But until recently, Toaster users have been somewhat neglected. While ImageFX could read and write Toaster Framestore-format files, with it you could not take advantage of the 1 caster’s framebuffers. Enter ToasterFX. This software package allows ImageFX to use those framebuffers for both preview and render operations, For those not familiar with FX, its interface to the artist is the screen where all dynamic operations take place. At any point after an operation is complete, you may render the contents of the preview to any supported image format or display device. FX For Images With ToasterFX, running ImageFX on a Toaster framebuffer is simply a matter of selecting VideoToaster from the preview prefs. Note that 2MB of chip RAM is required to use the Toaster preview, so A2000 owners will need a DKB MegaChip or similar product. .All standard ImageFX operations are performed dynAMIGAlly on that buffer (DV1). However, ImageFX performs its operations in a two-pass manner. For example, the program uses a rough representation of the brush while drawing, but updates the DV1 with the actual result only when the stroke is complete. This is not unique to the Toaster preview, and the updates are pretty quick and generally do not hinder the creative process, hut I would not rely on it heavily as a frill-color paintbox. While using ToasterFX, the Switcher remains active and performs most normal transitions. But certain digital cf- Continned on p. 48. Vlab Motion Let the Nonlinear jjtton Begin!?

Learn what makes these programs cutting edge and compare features of six of the leading packages. BY GEOFFREY WILLIAMS A f I s the pioneer platform lor multimedia, the Amiga enabled developers of multimedia software to produce the best and most sophisticated programs in the field. While improvements to more recent PC and Mac systems have allowed developers on those platforms to play considerable catch-up, Amiga multimedia still maintains a leading position. (Even IBM itself has used the Amiga in recent major multimedia presentations.) We’ll take a look in this survey at the state-of-the-art features that make the Amiga so attractive for multimedia, and at the programs that make it all possible. S T A T E - 0 F - T H E - A R T F E A T U R E S IN VOL R OWN search for the right multimedia package, there are a number of state-of-the-art features to keep an eye out for. I have broken them down by category lor discussion. Because the various programs support different features, you II want to check out the comparison chart (p. 18) to see which programs do what. The chart follows the same basic breakdown as the text. Character Generation While any program can load bitmapped fonts, most programs now support ColorEonts and scalable CG fonts. For both bitmapped and scalable fonts, you need the program to antialias the text as it is displayed. This makes the text look much smoother and eliminates jaggies. The more levels of antialiasing (the number of colors used between the font color and the background color), the smoother the text will appear. There are several text attributes that determine how text will look. Besides bold, underline, and italics, some programs let you add such attributes as 3-1) extrusion, outline, embossing, ghosting (transparent interior), or drop shadow. These can be adjustable, allowing you to set the shadow depth, the size of the outline, or even the angle of the italic. Some programs restrict you ? To changing the attributes of an entire line, while others oiler character-by-character adjustment. Some even allow von to scroll text for titles or to crawl a line of text across the screen. Graphics Import and Drawing There are two basic types of graphics: bitmapped and object-oriented. Bitmaps are in the IFF format on the Amiga and in numerous formats on other platforms. Some programs let you load a variety of formats from other computers. Object-oriented graphics, on the other hand, are typically found in EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) format. You can scale such drawings without losing any resolution, as they are mathematical representations rather than made tip of specific pixels. You can also create them from within a program.

A powerful feature of some programs is the ability to load bitmapped graphics, scale them to the size you want, and use a remapping and dithering algorithm to make that image match the current palette you are working in. This enables you to make veiy efficient use of even veiy limited palettes which is veiy important because even on 256-coior screens, some programs limit you to 12b colors for belter transitions or special effects. 1 find color cycling to be a powerful animation technique, requiring little eflbrt and using almost no system resources. It is especially elfective on still screens where you want to add a little movement or flash. There are two types of color cycling: Dpainr III cycling, the most commonly supported, and Dpaint IV cycling, a much more powerful type with more cycling ranges that can overlap without having to be sequential. Few programs, however, support it. Background creation is another factor to consider. A great way to make backgrounds is to use tiling brushes, as popularized by JFK Graphics’ excellent ProFills. Basically, this involves taking a small, specially designed brush and stamping it down repeatedly to lill up the background. Thus, programs that can use tilable brushes make it possible to store entire backgrounds in only the amount of space required by a single brush. Also, il you are creating a multimedia program for transfer to video, then you need to be able to eliminate colors that bleed or break up on video. Some programs have an NISC color Filter, which filters the colors on the screen so that they will still look good on video. Some packages even have complete built-in paint programs, allowing you to create graphics from within the application. Some even include draw programs, which differ from paint programs in that they let you draw object-oriented graphics on the screen, scale them, and easily move them around. A draw program is very handy for creating everything from buttons to text bullets; also, they usually include a number of predrawn objects, such as stars and other simple shapes. Animation With the Amiga's impressive reputation for animation, it’s natural that Amiga multimedia programs would excel in this area. Although we lack a format like Quick l ime that synchronizes animation and video to sound, most Amiga multimedia programs provide some way to achieve audio synchronization. Most Amiga multimedia programs make lull use of the computer’s powerful coprocessor chips for moving screens around and doing transitions. They also, however. Can take advantage of six basic animation formats that incorporate compression schemes and other space- saving routines to help with the process. ANIM-5, the original animation format, has been superseded by the speedy ANIM-8 format, designed to take advantage of the faster processors. While not an official standard, ANIM-7 can, in some cases, provide even faster animation. (Completing the range of animation formats are CDXL, designed for Cl) l Y; MPEG (Moving Pictures Experts’ Group), a universal cross-platform format for video; and, finally (and of most significance to multimedia), the Amiga’s own animbrush standard. An animbrush can be displayed anywhere on the screen, and some progiams can even move it along a path. Just like the ability to create tiled backgrounds, using animbrushes is also a tremendous space saver. The same little animated character can be saved as an animbrush and used over many different backgrounds. With the ability to move it along a path, you can even have the character walk around in different environments or move according to user input. Imagine how much space and memory you could save when you don’t have to create a complete animation for each instance. In addii ion, the ability of many Amiga programs to play an animation directly from hard disk makes it possible to display animations larger than memory. It also makes for easier synchronization of large animations because there is no load time. Sound and Music Any multimedia program can play sound samples, but one of the more powerful features of some progiams is the ability to play digitized samples of any length directly from hard disk again, as with animation, allowing you to play samples larger than memory. Similarly. When very large samples can he played instantly, it makes il easier to synchronize them with other events in i he presentation rather than having to wait for them to load or using up a lot of memory with a preload. I doubt that anyone has been very satisfied with the quality of SMUS (Simple Music Score) format, although most multimedia programs support it. Much more popular are MOD (Music Module) files. These files use sampled instruments of fairly high quality, and they tend to sound much better than does SMUS music when it is not played through a MIDI instrument. Multimedia programs support a wide variety of these kinds of formats, including SoundTracker, DSS, FuiureComposer,JamCracker, MarkII, NoiseTracker, Pro I l acker, and SoimclMonitor. Buttons Programs that lack draw or paint tools usually have at least a special button creator to generate threc-dimen- sional-looking square buttons. A few programs let you make anything (brush, line of text, and so forth) into a button, while the others restrict you to rectangular n shapes. The latter is a significant limitation in cases where you want to make free-form buttons of any shape available in your presentation. (For example, you might want to create a representation of the parts oi an engine and have each pan function as a button.) Also, it is not always clear in a presentation what objects or shapes are buttons, but some programs provide a very helpful feature to overcome this problem: ? Pointer highlighting. A button can be highlighted simply by passing the [jointer over it allowing the user to know immediately that the object is an interactive button. Sequence Control In addition to using interactive buttons, you can also control presentations through absolute riming (each event happens at a specific time alter the start of the presentation), or by scheduling events to happen at a certain date and time. Arexx capability is important as a means of providing such control, although some programs offer only Arexx-out, meaning that the multimedia program can control other applications hut not be controlled by them. Another useful feature provided by some programs is recorded timing tlie ability to trigger events manually and have that timing recorded for use in the actual presentation. For video, the ability to synchronize to SMFFE time code is also useful, as events on a video can trigger overlays and sound from the multimedia program. MediaPoint is chock-full of impressive features and effects. VideoStage Pro offers more than 60 screen and 50 object transitions effects. T II E P L A V E R S SIX AMIGA PROGRAMS possess many of the state-of- the-art multimedia features we have discussed. A seventh. Commodore’s AmigaVision Professional, had a lot going Ibr it, but began to fall behind in its display capabilities. Its current status is in doubt, though it can still create impressive presentations. We’ll omit it here, however, and concentrate on the features ol the other six. Scala MM300 File leading Amiga display program is Scala MM300 (5399, Scala Inc.) (Scala also markets that program’s more high-powered sibling, InfoChannel, priced at $ 2500 per master station and $ 800 per player station.) Its interface is very easy to master, allowing you to edit either a text-based event Fist or one with miniature images of the pictures in the show, and it has many impressive features. It comes with a simple, limited audio editor (basically just for trimming sounds) and an animation editor (AnimLab) that allows you to make, split, resize, add superimposed text to, and convert ANIM-5 to ANIM-8 animations. It will also convert animations to a format that plays back faster from hard disk. MM300’s 100-plns screen and object transitions are the best around. Using a process called color fading with two pictures that each use hall the available colors, the palettes are split between the two Ibr seamless transitions. Scala uses an extensible format called FX (pronounced “ee-ex”) to add external support. Included are FX modules for the Canon Xapshot, Avideo Colonnasier, Scala and GVP genlocks, GVFs IV-24, MIDI, CDTV, and the Sony and Pioneer laserdiscs. There arc also many optional modules available for such things as format conversion and control ofSunRize’s Studio lb. The new InfoChannel 500 provides numerous additional features: almost twice as many wipes, invoicing capabilities for insert advertising, MPEG encoding and support for Sea la’s low-cost MPEG player, remote updating over a network or phone line, and support for many more external devices (including a range ol video decks, switchers, and NewTck’s Video Toaster). It also adds File support for GIF, TIFF, BMP, FLG, PCX, VLA N, PhotoCD, and Workbench 3.0 Datatypes. MediaPoint MediaPoint 127 ($ 299.95, MediaPoint International). MM300‘s leading competitor, spoils impressive features of its own. It also comes with a freely distributable player, while MM300 does not. By connecting two Amigas with a null modem cable, you can achieve synchronized presentations or have one Amiga control the other. Ilie pic- ture-iile requester displays thumbnails of all the images in a drawer. MediaPoint’s41 screen and object transitions include some unique swooping dlccts along curved paths. MediaPoint offers extensible support for MIDI, CDTV, Canon’s Xapshot, SunRize’s AD516, Noahji’s Toccata. GVFs IV-24, NEC’s PC-VCR, and the Sony, j Pioneer, and Philips laserdiscs. VideoStage Pro VideoStage Pro ($ I 79, Oxxi) is the latest entry into the multimedia arena. Billed as a tiding program, it is quite a powerful multimedia program, as well, with many features adapted from the same developer's Presentation Master. It can generate algorithmic gradations for backgrounds and text fills. Among its more than 60 screen and 50 object transitions are effects that allow you to cross-fade between two 16-color images on AGA machines, and to perform fly-ins of the individual letters in a word. Many of the fly-ins of objects are also quite impressive, with control provided over multiple objects. 1 he transition requester also gives you a visual animation icon that shows what each transition type looks like. It offers external support for Digital Creations’ SuperGen and GVP s G-Lock genlocks, and for AudioMaster (Oxxi) sound sequences. VideoStage Pro Plus ($ 499) provides the same features, but also includes remote updating of presentations via modem, event logging, and text conversion to Bezier objects for warping and 3-D effects. -And, it is the only program here with the important KPS file-import feature. Can Do CanDo 2.51 (S 199.95, INOVAtronics) takes a very different approach to multimedia presentations. It allows you to create complete programs that use all of the Intuition features. Earlier versions were somewhat lacking in multimedia capability, but the current one greatly improves your ability to move between images. (An animated transition requester similar to VideoStage Pro's is included.) There are several unique transitions, many that use palette manipulation. CanDo has the most powerful math and variable features by far. Along with improved animation support. CanDo is more reliant on an understanding of scripting than the other programs (although a front-end actually generates the script), but it also provides far more flexibility and power. There used to be a liberal distribution policy regarding CanDo presentations, but now only noncommercial presentations are freely distributable. Commercial developers must pay a licensing fee of between $ 50 and $ 200 per year, wh ich is quite cheap compared to such fees in the PC world. Helm Helm 1.55 (SI29, Eagle Tree Software) is the low-cost alternative in the multimedia field. While not as powerful as the other programs, it si ill provides enough features to create impressive presentations; you might consider it a cross between CanDo’s programming power and a full-blown multimedia application. It generates charts, sports several image- processing functions, provides strong math and variable handling, and allows you to generate many Intuition-like control panels with a great deal of flexibility. It offers 15 basic transitions, each with multiple directions, but they all tend to be more of the traditional variety. Helm conies with a freely distributable player. Bars&Pipes Professional While Bars&Pipes Professional 2.0 ($ 429, The Blue Ribbon SoundWorks) is the leading MIDI sequencer in the Amiga market, it also includes a number of multimedia capabilities (this is especiallv true with the latest version 2.5 which also retails for S429 and is available to registered 2.0 users for $ 69.95). While not designed with interactive features such as buttons and variables, it triggers multimedia events at specific points in the music, making for very accurate synchronization. It allows control over GVP’s G-Lock and IV-24 (controls FreezcFrame in PIP), Interactive MicroSystem’s MediaPhile video-editing system. Panasonic laserdisc players, SunRize’s Studio 16, Digital Creations* SuperGen. And NewTek’s Video Toaster. It can even control a Scala presentation. Bars&Pipes Pro includes a freely distributable player. .All six programs offer you an impressive suite of useful features for creating multimedia presentations. I he table on p. 18 can help you determine which one has the specifics that best meet your needs. ¦ Geoffrey Williams, director of Creative Business Presentations, is a frequent contributor to computer-video publications.

Mac Cross-platform Computing Part 2: Macintosh Survival Kit This month AW wraps up its two-part feature on cross-platform computing issues by taking a look at how to make the Amiga and the Macintosh work together. In many ways, the Amiga and Macintosh are spiritual cousins. Both are based on Motorola microprocessors; both rely primarily on a mouse-based, graphical operating system; and both excel at graphics-oriented applications. But there are many differences as well: The Mac's multitasking makes the much-maligned multitasking in Windows seem smooth; the Mac has no built-in command-line interface like the Amiga; and the Mac is a fairly isolationist machine that works best with peripherals designed specifically for it, whereas the Amiga can easily share printers, modems, and even monitors with most Pcs. Who needs a Mac? Although the PC has entrenched itself as the “industry-standard" generic computer and the first choice of most businesses, the Mac lias grabbed a firm hold on the graphic arts and publishing segments of the market. Telling the average art director that she will have to trade the Mac on her desk for a PC would he like telling a NewTek ? O BY DENNY ATKIN
• I miga 11 arid 2 3 R V I V A L S J A M I (J A M C Video Toaster user that lie’s going to have to go hack to an old-fashioned character generator it’s likely to elicit a very emotional reaction. Because of this, you’ll find that most printing-service bureaus concentrate on Mac equipment. If you want to get high-quality printouts of your Amiga graphics or desktop-publishing documents, your life will he a lot easier if you and your .Amiga can talk to Macs. Another reason to he interested in the Mac is that the Amiga can emulate it very easily. Because all pre- PowerMac machines use the same 680x0 microprocessors as the Amiga, all that is required to let the Amiga run Mac programs are a few translations that let the Mac operating system talk to the Amiga’s screen, sound chips, disk drives, and other peripherals. Because the microprocessor is the same, the emulation cards are much less expensive than PC’, emulators that must contain most of the guts of a PC on the card, and much faster than the cheaper, software-based PC emulators, which must translate every Intel 80x86 instruction into Motorola 680x0 code. Having a Mac built into your Amiga gives you access to programs that can fill in the few gaps in the Amiga’s software library, such as the home-fmance organizer Quicken, or top-notch word processors such as Microsoft Word or WordPerfect 3.0. Finally, you may need a portable computing solution to complement your Amiga, Many Amiga owners prefer the Macintosh PowerBook to MS-DOS laptops, as it works much more like the Amigas they are accustomed to. Software Solutions Some of us don’t really need lo run Mac software, but we do need to exchange documents and pictures with Macintoshes at work or at service bureaus. With the right tools, you can easily exchange data with a Mac using either (loppy disks or serial communications. Like the Amiga. Macintosh computers use a custom disk format that's not compatible with formats used by other computers. There are no Amiga programs available that will read and write directly to Mac disks you’ll need additional hardware, such as the A-Max II ($ 249.95), A-Max IV ($ 495.95, ReadySoft), or Emplant ($ 279.95 and up. Utilities Unlimited) emulators, or the now-discontinued Mac-2-DOS conversion software plus Mac drive if you need to access Mac disks direct Iv. However, there’s an easier solution: All Macintoshes that use the 1.41MB SuperDrive support a utility called Apple File Exchange (AFE), which lets them transfer files to and from 720Kand 1.44MB MS-DOS-formal disks. The Amiga has a similar utility, CrossDOS, included with AmigaDOS 2.1 and 3.0 or available separately from Consultron (as CrossDOS 5.0 Plus, $ 59.95). With CrossDOS and AFE, you can use MS-DOS floppies as an intermediate format for exchanging data. Hie only problem with this method is that you’re limited to the MS-DOS filename style of a maximum of eight characters plus a three-character extension: you can work around this by using Insignia Solutions’ AccessPC package on the Mac. Which stores the full filenames on the disk, and Rainer Koppler’s freeware APCNames utility to read and write the files from the Amiga. You may find that an even better solution is MacDOS ($ 124.95, Media4 Productions), a newly released software-only system that gives Amiga users easy and transparent access to Mac-formatted hard drives and high-density floppies. A marked advantage of this product is that it eliminates the necessity of using MS-DOS floppies as an intermediate format. Another solution is to use a serial connection with a stand-alone Macintosh (such as a PowerRook), either direct or by modem. You can simply use terminal programs to exchange the data. There is one problem, though: Files created on the Mac contain Resource and Data Forks. The Resource Fork contains the icon, creator data, and other information needed by the Mac operating system. Mac terminal programs support Mac Binary, a format that attaches the Resource Fork to the file so that it can be rebuilt when the file is downloaded on another Mac. But when this MacBinary data is added in front of a file such as a Gil* or JPEG graphic, it confuses the Amiga applications trying to read it. Ail easy solution is simply to strip this data using a utility such as Steve Plegge’s freeware DEMAC. Most Mac applications are intelligent enough to recognize lile formats despite the missing Resource Fork, so von don’t have to concern yourself with this when transferring most data liles back to the Mac. For very lame files, you’ll want to use a Bernoulli or o 7 * SyQuest removable hard disk to do the transfer: more on this later. Enhancing Emulators If you’re doing a lot of Mac work, you'll want to pick up one of the excellent Mac emulators available for the Amiga. If your Amiga has Zorro slots, you have the choice of A-Max IV or Emplant, both of which emulate color Macintoshes at full speed. 11 you have an A500, A600, A1000, or A1200. A-Max II lets you emulate a black-and-white Mac. Your best bet is one of the Zorro cards, as they allow von to adtl accessories that enhance the performance of your emulated Mac. (Watch for a comparison of the Emplant and A-Max IV Mac emulators in October in *TIead2Hcad.”) When you want to improve the graphics of a PG emulator, von must buv a video card that helps only the PC side of your Amiga. Because the Mac emulators use the same microprocessor and tints the same bus as the Amiga, you can enhance them by adding a card to the Amiga side ol the machine, improving the computer’s capabilities no matter which side of the machine you’re using. Although it's not essential, a O o graphics card will help even A( iA Amigas by speeding performance in 256 colors, as well as adding support for 24-bit displays and higher resolutions.

Which card offers the best performance depends on which emulator you choose. I’m fond of the Picasso II ($ 549 and up, Expert Services); although it’s not the fastest card out there, it works very transparently in both Mac and Amiga modes. You have a number of options for data storage. You can dedicate a partition on one of your Amiga hard disks to storing Mac data. Chances are, however, that your Amiga hard drive is already nearly full, so you 7 * might consider adding a dedicated drive for Mac data. An additional internal hard drive is one solution, but a better option is to attach an external SCSI drive. If you need to move large I lies from your emulated Macintosh to a real Mac, you can simply unplug the drive from the back of your Amiga and attach it to the SCSI port on the Mac. If you’d rather not haul your hard disk across town, though, you might consider a Bernoulli or SyQuest removable disk drive. T his gives Mac disk that can be carried or even to service bureaus equipped with similar drives. And when you’re not running the Mac emulation, you can replace the Mac cartridge with one formatted for AmigaDOS, thus increasing your Amiga-side storage. Whatever Mac storage solution you choose, you should purchase a copy of Symantec’s SuperDoubler, a Mac utility that can nearly double your available J * • storage by compressing your files in the background. If your emulator-equipped Amiga is near a group of networked Macintoshes, you can increase your storage by plugging into the net. A-Max IV and Emplant are both equipped with AppleTalk-compatible serial ports, and both support some Zorro II Ethernet cards as well. Printing Panaceas If you’re adding an emulator or a PowerBook to your existing Amiga setup, you’re likely to run into trouble when it comes time to print. Most Mac owners use either Apple printers or one of a few printer models designed specifically for their machines, such as the HP Desk,Writer. Apple’s System 7 operating system doesn’t include support for the third-party printer you probably have attached to your Amiga. You can peruse online services for PD or shareware primer drivers a few are available for printers such as the DeskJet but they’re generally not very reliable in the 32-bit operating mode used by the Amiga emulators, and they usually don’t support color. GDT Softworks offers an excellent solution with its PovverPrim package. The latest version supports 32-bit color output on printers such as the HP DeskJet, and ii includes a scrial-to-parallel converter to speed output from Mac serial ports. Most public-domain printer drivers do not support advanced Mac printing features such as page flipping, precision bitmap alignment, and inversion, but PowerPrim does. With support for literally hundreds of printers from manufacturers such as Citizen, Epson, HP, Panasonic, and Toshiba, this is the cure-all solution for your Mac printing woes. Color output from Adobe PhotoShop to my HP DeskJet 500C was superb. Another solution available if you have access to a PostScript printer or service bureau is to capture your PostScript printer output to a file, save it on a floppy, and then take it to another computer to print it. You'll need a special version of the LaserWriter driver that’s patched so as not to require AppleTalk; you should be able to find this on online networks under a name such as LWNC>APPLE PAL.K.sea. A Multimedia Mac Although most Macs don’t have the animation horsepower to rival an Amiga, the machine has nevertheless been the development platform of choice for many multimedia programmers (largely due to the availability of Director, one of the better multimedia development packages on the Mac market). If you want to use your Amiga and emulator to access the abundance of Mac CD-ROM software out there, you'll need some high- performance peripherals. First of all, your Amiga should have at least a 25-MHz, 68030 microprocessor; most Mac multimedia titles work best on a 68040 system. Second, an add-on video card such as GVP's EGS Spectrum ($ 499 and up) or the Picasso II is practically a must, as video emulations that use (lie Amiga’s graphics hardware can’t keep up with the 15-frames-per-second screen-update rates required by some multimedia titles. Finally, you’ll need a SCSI CD-ROM drive (and a SCSI port if your system doesn’t already have one). Make sure you get a double-speed drive with 300K second transfer capability. Apple’s CD-300 drive is a good choice. It’s fast and reasonably priced, and you can also use it with packages such as Asimware’s AsimCDFS file software to access CD-ROMs on the Amiga side. Apple Answers For more suggestions on smooth emulation, you should look to resources such as local users’ groups or the Amiga Crossings newsletter mentioned last month. N o The fastest support, though, comes from online services. Utilities Unlimited provides support on all the major Amiga networks, as well as on the Internet. Although ReadySoft is not online, you can find many A-Max owners who are always happy lo share their experiences with you. If you’re traveling the information superhighway, you can subscribe to the Emplant mailing list for emulation hints and tips. Just send a letter to sub- scribe@xamiga.linet.org containing the line " emplant yourname@youi domain.” Even better, check out the newsgroup conip.sys.amiga.cmulations, which daily posts dozens of new messages covering emulations of computers ranging from die Apple Mac to the VIC-20. ¦ Denny At kin is on associate editor for OMNI Magazine and author oj the book Denny Atkin's Best Amiga Tips and Secrets.

- EudiOHK (ilHiU Part Two It slices. It dices. The amazing Arexx does it all. Our two-part series demonstrates, through descriptions and examples, that this versatile language can deliver a million-and-one customized cuts. “HAS FULL AREXX support!” “Offers more than 275 Arexx commands!” “Provides an Arexx port!”1 Advertisements lor Amiga software often make such claims, and advertisers obviously believe that they increase their products' value. Consumers, however, may he more puzzled than tempted by them. You may not be sure what these claims mean. How could a programming language possibly make your other programs more powerful or easier to use? What’s more, your main concern is probably what Arexx can do for you and how much effort it will cost. As we saw in the previous installment, Arexx is no ordinary programming language. What makes it so different is its ability to expand its range of functions by incorporating commands from other programs. An Arexx program can execute Arexx commands, AmigaDOS commands, commands from special Arexx function libraries, and commands from anv program that supports Arexx. 1 his last feature, the ability to command applications, deserves a closer look. Easier By The Dozen Every application, whether it is a word processing program, a spreadsheet, or a paint program, performs certain functions in response to the user’s actions. If you enter text, the word processing program adds that text to the current document. If you select the Save item from the Project menu, the paint program saves a picture file. An application that supports Arexx simply provides another way to select these same functions. Sending the message “SAVE my file” from an Arexx program does exactly the same thing as selecting the Save menu item and ty ping “myfile” in the requester. At first glance, this may seem like a giant leap backwards. It is generally considered easier to use the mouse and menus than to type commands. Easier, that is, until you have to perform I lie same series of a dozen steps 50 or 100 times. Then, you will find it much more convenient to write an Arexx script once, and have it save you several minutes each time you need to 4 perform the same series of commands. Let’s take a real-world example. Say you are a NewTek Video Toaster owner who produces a weekly real-estate show on cable television. Each show requires a number ol slides in which a picture of a house or broker is reduced to a small rectangle and superimposed over another picture. You use Art Department Professional (Elastic Reality, formerly ASDG) for the image processing, and perform seven operations on each still frame:
1. You load the framestore directly from the Toaster using the _VT_Grab loader.
2. Shrink the picture to 30% of its original size, using the Scale operator.
3. Make the picture more suitable for keying using the Dynamic Range operator to raise the black level.
4. Pul the image in the Temp buffer with the Temp saver. ?
- Bu tuuDON UtmoN I* A R T 2 A R E X
5. Create a solid black background 752x480 in size, using the Backdrop loader.
6. Load the small image from theTemp buffer on top of the black backdrop at a horizontal offset of 450, and a vertical offset of 40, using the Temp loader and the Compose option.
7. Send the altered image back to the Toaster using the T Display saver. Each of these steps is easy to perform. Indeed, many of them require only a single mouse click. But when von have to perform all seven steps in exactly the right order on 20 or 30 pictures, you may Find yourself muttering at the monitor after a while. Fortunately, ADPro allows you to use Arexx as a macro language. A one- line command in an Arexx script can perform any AD Pro operation, just as if you had used the mouse or keyboard. Listing 1 (below) performs the series of seven operations outlined. I created this Arexx program by loading one of the sample Arexx programs that come with AD Pro into my text editor, and used it as a model (a procedure that I highly recommend for beginners). One of the most interesting things about this program is that only the first three commands are really Arexx commands. The Address line is used to send any non- Arcxx commands to AD Pro’s Arexx port, which is called “ADPro” (watch out, these names are case-sensitive). The Remlib line is required because of an obscure idiosyncrasy of the 1 caster’s Arexx port that intercepts Call commands and returns an error. Listing 1 *
* * F5.adpro ** Finally, Call is necessary because _ T_Grab isn t really a loader, but another Arexx script. All of the other commands in this program, Irom PctScale to Saver, are ADPro commands. These commands are well documented in the reference section of the ADPro manual. If you look closely, you can see that they clearly correspond to the operations you perform manually with ADPro. So. You really don't have to be an Arexx expert to write one of these macros. A working knowledge of ADPro and a few minutes of experimentation are all it takes. One way to execute your script from ADPro is to select the Execute Arexx Script item from the User menu. A far easier way, however, is to assign the script to a hotkey. If you save this script in the REXX: directory with the name “Fo.adpro,” for example, ADPro will run the script whenever you press the F5 function key. You’ll really appreciate the convenience of this feature if you have many pictures to process in a row. A Little Dab’ll Do Ya While it is technically possible to write a macro file without knowing anything about the Arexx language, a little programming knowledge can really enhance the power of your scripts. A recent experience I had illustrates this fact. As manager of the Amiga forum on National Videotex Network, it is my job to activate files that are uploaded to the data libraries. This lask isn’t very hard, but it does require a few steps for each file. After logging on and entering the file preview area, I enter the number of the file to activate, type an “a” to activate the file, enter a “y” to confirm activation, and then go back to the menu for the next file. A lew weeks ago, I asked die staff to upload several hundred files to the forum from a CD-ROM. T his left me with the problem of activating all of them. I really couldn’t see sitting there and typing the same series of keystrokes, over and over, for an hour or more. Fortunately, I use the BaudBandit terminal program, which includes Arexx support. After consulting the Arexx documentation file, it took me only a few minutes to come up with this program: r This script requires ADPro 2.3.0 (or higher).

Using this script, I was able to activate the 200 files in just over 20 minutes. Best of all. Once 1 started the process, 1 was free to do other things (like write this article) while the computer did all ol the work. As with AD Pro, you can launch a Baud- Bandil script either from a menu, or assign it to a function key using the program’s keyboard macro feature. The Mori: The Merrier As powerful as Arexx macros are for controlling one program, they have even more muscle when you use them to combine the talents of two or more programs. Making software work together this way turns standard off-the-shelf programs into custom applications. With the power of Arexx, for example, vou can turn a standard terminal program and spreadsheet into ail automated stock-update service comparable to the expensive custom systems that track stock portfolios. (Such systems use a modem to automatically call an information service, download stock prices, and then enter the prices into a database or spreadsheet.) 1 used Gold Dish's ProCalc as the spreadsheet for this project because it has excellent Arexx support. First, I created a spreadsheet containing columns for the ticker symbol for each stock, quantity purchased, purchase price, most recent price, and gain or loss (see Figure B). The rest of the columns are blank that’s where the downloaded daily or weekly closing price information will go. (One caveat: In operating Pro- Calc from Arexx, an A4000 or A1200 will crash once the Arexx script closes; my solution has been to leave it running.) 1 used BaudBandit once again as my terminal program, this time to obtain the stock-price information from National Videotex Network. The stock-quote area presents this data in the format shown in Figure A (above). Last month. I showed how to use Arexx to extract just the information you want (in this case, the price in the last column). So, it really shouldn’t he hard to read the ticker symbols from the spreadsheet, request the price information with the terminal, extract the prices, and enter them into the spreadsheet (Figure B). The program shown in Listing 2 (next page) does just that. File program starts with the Options Results command. This command allows BaudBandit and Pro- Calc commands to pass information back to the program in the special variables RG (return codes) and Result (numbers and text). Next, it checks to sec if ProCalc is running. If ProCalc’s Arexx port isn’t there, the script runs Pro(laic and loops until it finds the PCALC Arexx port. The Address PCAI.C section directs all commands that Arexx doesn't recognize to ProCalc. The specified text string from the modem, and the Send command sends text to the modem as if you had typed it in. Arexx's Do command does the real work, repeating the same series of actions two hundred times, changing die + % Figure B. Layout for the spreadsheet. 1 lie first ProCalc command loads the Stock spreadsheet. Then, the GetLastCol function finds the first empty column, and returns its column number in Result. Since ProCalc uses letters to identify cell columns, we must convert this number to one or two letters. We do this with the integer division and modulus operators, and the D2C function (which turns numbers into their letter equivalents). If this seems too confusing, you can use the MakeCell function included in the sample macros that come with ProCalc. The next task is to place today's data in the As Of column in the spreadsheet (cell 1)2), so we’ll know the date of the most recent quote. We use the PutCell command to enter the date from Arexx’s l)ate() function. Next, we copy the date to the top of the empty column using the Copy and Paste operations. We copy the cell instead of just putting the information in the new cell, because the Copy operation duplicates the formatting and font information for the cell in addition to the contents. This ensures that the new cell is formatted as a date cell. The next block of commands go to the BaudBandit program (its Arexx port is namecl BAUD). These commands are similar to the ones in the Act File program (opposite). They send the text that is required to navigate the NYN menu, and arrive at the stock-quote area. Once there, we enter the program’s main loop, the one that gets the stock prices and puts them in the spreadsheet. The first step is to ask ProCalc to read each ticker symbol. These symbols are located in column A of the spreadsheet, in cells A3-A16.

We have BaudBandit wait until the prompt reappears, so we know that the whole price quote has been given, then we ask it to search its review buffer for the last line that contains the ticker symbol. That’s the line with the price-quote information. We copy that line of text into a variable called line bub and use the Arexx parsing commands (discussed in Ban One last month) to extract the information in the Last Price column. This appears as a mixed number (57%, for example) which we must convert to a decimal number (in this case, 57.375). Once we have the price information, we go back to ProCalc. If the price is a valid number, we enter it into the As Of column, and then copy and paste iL to die same row in the first empty column. We repeat the process until all 14 stocks are updated. If you switch to the ProCalc screen while this program is executing, you can watch as each price is entered as if by some ghostly hand! While this script is fully functional, it is somewhat simplified for purposes of illustration. For example, it does not save the spreadsheet data after updating it, nor does it dial up NVN and log on. (Adding these features, however, would require only a couple more lines.) A more serious matter is the lack of error checking. The script does not check (dr accidental disconnects from the information service, or for other error conditions that can creep in from time to time. It is a good practice to check the return code for every command that has one, to make sure that the command was executed without a problem. We did not include this step because to do so would double the length of the program and make ii harder to read. You will no doubt want to be more thorough when you create your own Arexx scripts. In our defense, we can only say that this version will work almost all of the time, and if an error does occur, the worst that happens is that one clay’s prices arc not updated correctly. Cuts Through This Aluminum Can! The applications outlined above should give you some idea of how beneficial it can he to "program programs,” They hardly cover the full range of’ possibilities, however. Once you start running your programs by “remote control,” you will look at those programs in a whole new light. I got a lot of new ideas in the course of writing this article, and I’ll bet that you can dream up many ways to simplify repetitive tasks, or even to perform whole new applications you hadn’t thought of previously. Once you start wielding your Arexx, you’ll find that, like the amazing ginsu, it has “a million-and-one uses!” ¦ Sheldon Leemon, a computer video consul font and instructor, is the author of two hooks and scores of articles covering the Amiga.

I [you're at the point of juicing up your multimedia masterpiece with music and sound, you ’d better become a legal to avoid the discords and dissonances °f copyright infringement. „,,orate botli sound and mus1*-'-Because Effective multimedia presentations inco | understand both of these elements are typically created b ot . Nfi;nirs i . Iiv ,.«> ihem. Misiindersianctmgs the circumstances under which you can leg . About this area abound, so it is important that you know the basics ol 1 taining to copyright and intellectual property tights. Adding a Dash of Sound The simplest area to grasp concerns sound effects, 'i on can buy sound eflec ts that conic with a license allowing their use in perpetuity for any purpose except selling them as collections. They typically come on CD and range in cost from very expensive to quite cheap. These are the only sound effects you can use legally, other than sounds you create and digitize yourself. You may not use sounds from a video, a TV program, or anv other medium unless their use is specifically licensed to you. Note especially that the c heap collections of sound effects sold m record stores are specifically licensed for non-commercial home use; you cannot use them legally lor multimedia purposes without licensing that use from the producer and paying an additional fee. A Touch of Music Music is much more complicated. Any unauthorized use nl pterecorded music is against Geoffrey l i||iams ILLUSTRATION BY SI DM A COLLINS the law, and disregarding this can get yon in a lot of trouble. You may not use just a few bars of music, or use just the music without the lyrics, or change the lyrics. You may not even use prerecorded public- doniain songs without securing specific permission and paying a fee. There are large organizations that seek out unauthorized use and go after the ofienders to make an example of them. It is not a pretty picture, and violations could put you out ol business. So how do you get music you can legally use? There are five basic ways: Hire a composer, use licensed production music, create your own with a computer, use licensed commercial music, or find music that’s in the public domain. These options may seem straightforward, but the details can be tricky. Hiring a Composer Hiring a composer may seem like an expense that is out of the question, but it can be a very cost-effective solution under some circumstances. It is especially helpful if you are not an expert at choosing appropriate music (a task that takes time, even for experts). A good composer can write something that will fit your needs. Of course, vou still need to have that music recorded, but as many composers use MIDI systems that allow them also to play the score, this may not be a problem. If you want a lush orchestral sound, however, hiring an orchestra can be quite expensive. Tor most projects, a MIDI studio will be more than adequate. It is necessaiy to clraw up a contract with the composer that exactly defines your intentions for the music. If you are buying the rights for your exclusive use, expect to pay a lot more. II the composer retains the rights, you must specify how yon warn to use the music. Are you paying only for one-time use in a live presentation? If that is all you have agreed to, then the use of that music on a tape you distribute later may be a copyright violation. If you license it lor use in a specific multimedia project and then reuse it on another jV usic Collections ESO URCES project, that could also be a violation. Your rights to use the music must be specifically spelled out you have no rights other than those agreed upon. Production Music Using production music is possibly the easiest way to go. Such music is recorded especially for use in video and other productions, and you purchase a license to use it in your projects. There are two types of production music: needle-drop and buy-out. With needle- drop, vou pay a set fee based on how much music you use in each production. A variation on needle-drop, called a blanket license, bases the fee on the overall length of your production rather than on the number ol pieces and their length. Both types of agreement are used typically with top-of-the-line-production music libraries, where you will find a huge variety of fully orchestrated music. With buy-out music, you pay a one-time fee to purchase the library, which you can then use in perpetuity. There may be some restrictions, however, such as not being able to use it for broadcast television or film production. Buy-out music can be good or mediocre, and in general the libraries tend to be smaller, with less variety. If you prefer not to track each use ol the music and still want top-of-t lie-line quality, many of the better collections issue an annual license that lets you use the music as much as you want for a year. Computer Assistance If you are a composer, you can use a computer to write and perform vour own music, but there are ways a computer can also help the rest of us. Be carelul, however: One thing you may not do is to sample commercial music and digitally rearrange it or use bits and pieces. There have been test cases involving rap music that have pretty much settled this issue. Typically, music libraries are available on Cds, and each song usually comes in several different lengths, Most companies will provide you with a demo CD or samples over the phone. The typical price per CD for buy-out music is around $ 50. The best way to find out what the companies oiler is to call them. Airworks. Developers of TimeBuilcler. 313 645-5730.

A new product called TuncBuilder (Air- works Media) works with specially digitized music libraries and can algorithmically recompose a song sample into any length you waul, while preserving its musical integrity. This type of technology may soon be available lor the Amiga (it also works under Windows and on the Mac). Currently, it comes with Air- works Media’s music library. (The 12-disc collection is $ 1295 for in-house use and $ 5499 lor broadcast buyout; in-house use of a single CD costs as little as S199). Killer Tracks plans to release a version of its outstanding library with TuneBuilder, and other music- library providers also intend to make compatible versions of their libraries. The Blue Ribbon SoundWorks, the leading developer of MIDI sequencing software for the Amiga, is also the creator of Superjam ($ 149), a product that lets you create music even if you know nothing about composition. It won’t create a Grammy-award-wi lining song, but it has a lot of built-in artificial intelligence that allows you to play along with predefined rhythms and styles, and it automatically converts your noodling into something that makes sense musically. For those with a little more musical knowledge, Superjam is jam-packed with a lot of sophisticated features that give you an endless amount of control. Using BltteRibboifs I urbo technology, you can play 12 simultaneous voices directly out of the Amiga’s sound chips, although the sound quality would be much better if you use MIDI or Blue Ribbon's One-Stop Music Shop sound card. Superjam has enough powerful features so that you can use it to create very accurately timed music for multimedia and video. Commercial Music If you want to use commercial music from a favorite album in your latest multimedia project, 1 suggest you forget it. If you are creating a project for distribution, a lot ol record companies are not even set up for this type of license agreement. Even for a production that will be shown live only once, you must pay a license fee to the composer, another to the record company or whoever owns the rights to the recording, and still another public-performance fee to ASGAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) or BM1 (Broadcast Music Incorporated). (I( the music is played as background and not used with video or other visuals, you might have to pay only the ASCAP BMI performance fee.) You may expect to pay about $ 5000 to SOOOO for a single performance. Also, it can take weeks to secure permission, and you may have to pay a service to hunt down all of the proper copyright holders. If you must use commercial music, 1 suggest you invest $ 75 for a copy of the Multimedia Law Handbook. By J. Dianne Brinson and Mark F. Radcliffe (Ladera Press. 1994). It explains the many complexities ol using commercial music and other copyrighted materials in multimedia productions, and it offers a lot of other useful legal information. Public-Domain Music A lot of music is available in the public domain, which embraces anything written before 1918 or anything specifically placed in the public domain since then. Just because a song is PD does not mean that you can freely use a recording of it, although securing the rights is a lot easier and significantly cheaper than in the case of popular commercial music. You can hire someone with a music studio to record the piece for you. But make sure that you reach an agreement allowing you to use the recording in any projects you want for an unlimited amount of time. The Blue Ribbon SoundWorks’ SuperJam can help even wooden>eared multimedia producers create music for their presentations. The best source for finding what music is in the public domain is a $ 299 guide, The Mini-Encyclopedia of Public-Domain Songs, available directly from BZ Rights and Permissions Stuff (212 580-0615). It lists 650 titles of popular music alphabetically and by category, along with other information about the songs (such as whether there are contemporary arrangements that are not in the public domain). W hile sheet music for most of these songs is readily available, you can also get it directly from BZ Rights. You can find another source of PD music, called MOD files, through CD-ROM collections and online services. MOD (Music Modules) is a popular music format on Amigas and Pcs that uses digitized samples to create good-quality music in a relatively small file size. There are thousands of MOD files floating around, but that does not necessarily mean that you can freely employ them in a project, even if the author puts no restrictions on i heir use. In order for you to use a MOD file, the person who created it must have both written the music and given permission for its use. Many MOD files are versions of commercial songs, and using them may violate the original composer’s copyright. There is nothing like music and sound ell’ects to enhance a multimedia project. Just make sure that you are on sound legal ground when you use them. ¦ Geoffrey Williams, director of Creative Business Presentations, is a frequent contributor to computer-video publications.

GRAPHICS 66 A continuing series of lips, techniques, and tricks for creating more imaginative Amiga graphics. By Joel Hagen AS ELEGANT AND popular as today’s 3-D programs are, they remain one of the most difficult categories of software to master. With a paint program, a beginner can see results after the first few strokes of the mouse. With 3-D software, quite a bit of manipulation, button pushing, and rendering time is required before an image actually appears on the screen. Beginners are often at a loss for what to do after they have rendered a floating ball. This column will draw ideas from traditional sculpture to suggest a line of experiments beginners might try in getting stalled with Amiga 3-1). When we think ol 3-D computer graphics, what often comes to mind are elaborate images of cities, dinosaurs, spaceships, and so forth. For a beginning 3-D artist to attempt a triceratops as a first project is to invite frustration. That artist will be lighting multiple battles not only learning challenging software, but also trying to model complex shapes that have a “correctness” and an "incorrectness” associated with them simply because we know what they should look like. For a first series of 3-D projects, I suggest that instead of representational objects you tty abstract sculpture. There is no inherent “correctness” to the form of an abstract shape. This frees an artist to focus on the features and rituals of the software. For the moment, forget about texture maps and animation and just sculpt. Digital Clay T here is probably nothing more basic to the concept of sculpturing than to take a lump of clay and begin shaping it. You can squeeze that lump, stretch it, bend it, flatten it, and twist it. As you do, you begin to notice pleasing shapes. You preserve and perfect these shapes. This activity is art. Let’s use the computer to try the same basic approach. For this exercise, 1 used Galigari (Caligari Corp.) for its clean, perspec- tive-view interface. The terminology will use is specific to Caligari, but the w concepts are general, and you can do the same experiments in any good 3-D program. Begin in the perspective view and load a sphere from the list of “primitives.” In 3-D modeling, a primitive is a basic form such as a sphere, cube, or cylinder from which more complex objects can be assembled. For our purposes, look on the primitive as a lump of clay. Everything you make in this abstract-sculptuie project will begin as a simple sphere primitive like the one shown in the illustration. T o follow the example illustration accompanying this article, enlarge the sphere a bit by selecting Scale and Obj and dragging the mouse with both buttons depressed. Next, flatten and stretch the sphere into a blade shape by experimenting with constraining the scaling to one axis at a time. In Caligari, do this with different combinations of the X, Y, and Z buttons as you move the mouse. When you have stretched out an interestingly proportioned blade shape, bencl and twist it to give it more dynamic character. Each program has its own method for organically reshaping objects. In Caligari this is accomplished with the Deform feature found in the Point Edit tools. When you select the Deform button, a box appears around your object. Drag the mouse in the work area to subdivide the box for finer control, and then use the cursor to select all vertices on one end of that box. Selecting the Obj and Move buttons, experiment with constraining the X, Y, and Z buttons while you drag the mouse in the workspace. The box will move according to the axis settings, and the blade object within will be pulled along with it. When you release the mouse button, the surface of the blade will smooth out along its length. Switch to the Obj and Rot buttons, and rotate the end of the box a little. When you are satisfied, hit the Erase button twice to clear the Deform box. The blade should now have a graceful bend and twist. Save the object. Instead of trying familiar representational objects, novice 3-D artists might do better with abstract sculptures first and here’s how to get started. Sculpting Calisthenics In traditional sculpture, it can lie interesting to use multiple similar elements to compose a finished work. For example, several different lengths of pipe might be welded together to create an interesting composition. In a way, this is like drawing in three dimensions, where the composition is as much about lines in space as it is about volume and shape. To continue your computer sculpture, select the Tools button and use Copy to duplicate your bent blade. Use Scale, Move, and Rot Obj to stretch, move, and rotate the new blade into an appealing visual relationship with the original. Repeat this to duplicate, stretch, and rotate a third blade, then a fourth and fifth. The button tools make it easy to quickly produce many blades, each unique and positioned where you decide. For contrast, you might add another sphere deformed differently than the blades for a visual accent. When you like the arrange- J o ment, “Glue” the pieces together so they are thereafter treated as a single object. At this point you might want to create a backdrop for the scene before rendering it. In the illustration, two rectangles are positioned upright at right angles to each other and saved as walls to be placed behind the sculpture in the rendering. Typically, 3-D software allows you to design objects as wireframes, and then to render the actual illustration in a separate operation. In Caligari, switch to Scene and Add Objects to compose a “snapshot” of your sculpture. Position the walls behind the sculpture and rotate it to a pleasing orientation. Save this scene, and vou can alwavs return to that view j of the object group. For the final rendering, specifying object attributes and lighting can make or break the image. No matter how interesting your object may be, ineffective lighting can ruin its appearance. Set up at least three lights. Use two on the sculpture one high and one low. Place an additional light to illuminate the back walls so the sculpture stands out in contrast. (Refer to “Accent” 61, Mar. 94, p. 70. For more hints on lighting.) Specifying object attributes lets you have fun with the unique power of the computer. Here you can change the transparency of the object, its shininess or dullness, and its color. Combined with the shading method you select, these attributes determine whether your sculpture appears to be made of glass, bronze, or plaster. In the illustration. The sculpture’s transparency is set at about 209c to allow all elements to show through. The angled walls add to
o o the visual dynamics of the scene, and Local Lights combined with Phong shading create a varied illumination. I ligh shininess and specular reflections help the light delineate edges. I rendered the illustration in Caligari24’s Broadcast Render mode to GVP’s IY24 framebuffer. Abstract sculpture projects like this one allow you to focus on mastering the features of your 3-D software without the additional burden of creating representational objects. Once you are comfortable with modeling and rendering principles, explore representational objects and apply the same concepts of scene composition and lighting. ¦ Joel Hagens credits include work in art, astronomy, science fiction, and software development.

Do you fear that an inability to afford all those products will render vour services uncompetiliver 1 hat s just not so! Recently, I coproduced a couple of television commercials targeted at kids. Our goal was to keep these commercials very dynamic, so I did not want to have boring Cgs slow down the pace. Color-cycling the text seemed the perfect solution. Having several expensive tools at my disposal, I began to search for the best one to do this task. After a lot of frustrating experi11 ientati(m, 1 turned to the program that had been one of my most used tools for several vears DeluxePaim. In verv 4 Z little time I had the titles I wanted, cycling colors in real time, overlaid on the desired video sequences via a simple genlock. Had T used the more expensive tools, it would have taken me a lor longer to achieve the same results. Making Money When 1 bought my first Amiga 500, 1 used to earn' it from one post house to another. I made quite a bit of money by making realtime animations and nice Cgs available instantly to several producers. You can do the same thing today. You can help spice up other people's presentations and, if you are suHiciently talented, even do work good enough for broadcast. And vou can do it with a very j j basic system. An A500 with one megabyte of RAM and a genlock such as GYT’s G- Lock or Digital Creation’s Supergen will sullice. A genlock serves several purposes. It encodes the Amiga's RGB signal into composite NTSC video (or component Y C) so that you can record it on videotape. It also syncs your Amiga with other video equipment and lets you superimpose Amiga graphics over live video a feature essential for character generation. If vou don’t think you will ever use vour Amiga as a character generator, then you can substitute Digital Creations’ DC 1A for the genlock. This unit allows you to play back animations with millions of colors in real rime, surpassing the Amiga’s native color modes. It will not, however, let you superimpose Amiga graphics over video. You can also make some money bv manipulating images on the computer. DCIY acts as a slow-scan digitizer, too, letting you grab images from videotape or a camera. Other low-cost digitizers do the same. Selling Your Services When you are working with a basic Amiga system, vou O * should know what your limits are. Be realistic. Trying to sell services you are not capable of delivering can totally ruin your chances for success. II a client needs a fancy 3-D animation for a national television campaign. You know you won't be able to deliver it with such a system. So be sincere. But take the opportunity to explain and show what else you can do. (lorporate presentations and training tapes use lots of graphics, charts, and text pages. This kind of work is ideal for your basic Amiga system. With inexpensive software, you can go beyond the ordinary and oiler your clients animated chans and graphics and sophisticated CG pages, with fancy transitions. Believe it or not. Even some of the most advanced post-production houses cannot deliver this type of service as easily as you can. And consequently, they must charge a lot more for the extra time they must spend. If you can create some slick demo presentations, you can bet many people will be interested. Small production facilities, videographers, and cable stations are ideal targets for vour services. J hev
o often lack more sophisticated equipment and may find vour Amiga system very u J useful. The real-estate company down the road may well benefit from a local IV or cable show that displays their properties. You can easily incorporate digitized images ol houses on CG pages, and llip through them with slick transitions. Add professional narration, and you have a finished product that is both effective and affordable to produce. Add animation, and you have a product that is much more interesting and certainly above average. Be Professional The high price tag of some systems does not necessarily guarantee great results. But with a low-cost system, vou’ll 4 4 want to be very professional to compensate lor any equipment handicaps. Trv alwavs to use high i O resolution to avoid jaggies and artifacts. Make sure your genlock or encoder is properly adjusted so it can deliver good-qualiiy, distortionless video. And avoid NTSC color problems by using no more than 85 percent of possible color levels. This ensures t hat your colors remain legal and don’t cause excessive bleeding or crawl. Now as Then Eight years ago, when even the simplest dedicated character generators cost several thousand dollars, you could buy an Amiga 1000 with built-in composite output (not the best, but it was there) and nice character- generation software for a fraction of the price of a traditional CG. Today you can do many video tasks much belter and more easily still at the same low price! While video has arrived on other per- sonal-compuler platforms, it is easier and less costly to get high-quality results from Amiga genlocks. O o There are many possibilities to explore with a low- cost Amiga system. And if you are successful, you may ft end up with enough money for new add-ons! ¦ Paulo de Andrade is president of Digital Reality, an Amiga- based broadens (-video and 3-D animation company in Seattle.

The spherical warps are an example of digital effects that can cause problems easily remedied, however, by reloading the project file. The ToasterFX preview is limited to using only DV1, so if you're working on DVI and then perform a Switcher transition with I)V2, ToasterFX internally continues to work with a copy of DVI. Bring ImageFX to your Toaster with ToasterFX. Any operation updates only the area affected and causes the internal copy of DVI to merge with what were the contents of DV2. The preview cannot be switched to or swapped with DV2. Also, you cannot load the contents of DV2 (or DVI when not in Toaster preview mode) into ImageFX. Byrd's Eye does provide, however, a ’‘beta" scanner module for retrieving the contents of either buffer. You use it only at your own risk, but it functioned well for me. Noteworthy Performance The other mode of operation with ToasterFX is to use ImageFX with one of the other standard preview' modules (such as HAMS) and employ the Toaster framebuffers for rendered output. You cannot use the Toaster for both preview and render at the same time, because preview is already rendering directly to DVI. ToasterFX performed flawlessly, and mv onlv disappointment was the limitation of its use to DVI. I did find the ImageFX interface tiring to view on an NTSC video display, as I was running it in interlace mode to take up less screen space. The manual recommends noninterlace as easier on the eyes. ToasterFX may seem a bit expensive, but it’s much cheaper than any of the other 24-bit cards that accommodate ImageFX. Mi a rk Th o m pso n Sample Wrench 2.1 dissidents, S299.00 All Amigas.
1. 3 2.0 3.0 compatible. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected. Accelerator recommended. Minimum system: 1MB, hard drive. Recommended system: 2MB, supported MIDI sampler, accelerator. Powerful 16-bit sample editor. The Sample Wrench (Wrench for short) is designed for musicians with 12- or 16-bit MIDI samplers and multimedia producers wanting to get the most out of the Amiga’s internal audio. It’s a solid 16-bit audio editor that oilers a wide range of file and transfer protocols. MIDI-In SCSI-Out Commodore’s Installer painlessly moves the Wrench setup (including scaled- down and accelerator-only versions) to your hard disk. (Surprisingly, the program even runs under Amiga DOS 1.3.) u _ ti The 3-D-style user interface is easy to comprehend. A click-to-from option allows a window to automatically pop to the top when selected, which is handy when several editors are open simultaneously. For time-intensive operations, a "percent done” display tells you whether to slick around or take a walk. In addition to supporting the MIDI- sample-dump standard, Wrench has dedicated drivers for Akai S612 S700 S900 S 1000 S 1100, Casio FZ-1, Roland S-50 S-70 770, Ensoniq EPS and 16+, Yamaha TX16W, Emu Fmax, Korg DSS-1, and Sequential Prophet 2000. Fearer's DMP SX, SXII, and SP are supported via the SMDl standard to interlace via SCSI, which is some 50 times faster than the agonizingly slow MIDI transfer rate. I wish that the SCSI interface of the EPS 16 + , my main sampler, had also been given SMDl support to give a similar performance boost. T was also disappointed that I could not load or save tmiltisamplcd layers and wave names or issue advanced commands to the EPS. On the other hand, owners of SimRize Al>516 boards get 16-bit audio playback right on the Amiga. Wrench reads and writes AIFF and Sound Designer Type 1 (popular Mac formats), single-octave SSYX, SMPI, (dissidents' nonproprieiarv format), and MSW1, an almost “raw” bit format with minimal header information. Most noticeably lacking is Windows’ .WAY sound J o format. In addition to the Amiga's internal serial port, Wrench can use the MIDI ports in The blue Ribbon SonndWorks’ Triple Play and One-Stop products, but only some drivers currently support this option. Waveform Editing Wrench's flexibility is evident in its design. You may edit up to eight different waves in separate windows and with cut, copy, and paste move data between them and six clipboard regions. Resizable windows allow for horizontal and vertical scrolling and zooming. A time axis shows seconds, minutes and seconds, words, SMPTE frames or time (all rates), and the amplitude scale is displayed in percent, absolute value, or decibels. The customizing doesn’t end there: Yon can also view Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT). Which aid in visualizing timbral changes over time. Moreover, you can plot a graph in its own window, depicting amplitude as a function of time for a number of frequencies, and if you pick your options well you can produce a tight web with a 3-
1) appearance. Window-border gadgets give quick access to sending, receiving, and triggering samples. You can perform the triggering with precision using the piano keyboard in a separate window (127 pitches) that also provides for the editing and display of note ranges, rool-kev definition, and O ’ sample fine tuning. A third option the Amiga's keyboard lets you play up to two samples at a time. The 18 items in the Functions menu provide access to the digital-signal-pro- ccssing (DSP) sound-editing features. Powerful options include fully parametric equalization, amplitude and time compression, pitchshift, and an arbitrary transfer-function generator. An enve- lope generator offers a trace function and allows freehand drawing. I found the enveloper and FQ to be effective tools for most of mv needs. The Wrench also provides advanced ?

Not copy protected. Accelerator recommended. Minimum system: 4MB, 68020. Recommended system: 4MB, hard drive, accelerator. Other formats are limited to 256 colors. When the program gets down to business, it uses two temporary Files that require about 2MB, depending upon the process. The image is converted into a PBM file; then additional processing creates a second PBM File, and that is converted into the destination format. 1 his is a time-consuming process; converting a JPEG 640x480 image to 16 colors took over Five minutes on a 68030-based Amiga, with no option for viewing the image before it is automatically written direct- ly to disk. By contrast, the same opera- sound libraries from one format to another. Arexx greatly enhances Wrench and distinguishes it from similar products on other platforms. Complaints in a Minor Key My gripe list is short. Some parameters, such as the manually entered frequency in the EQ, are not easy to handle, and changes in one window don’t automatically update related windows the key range, for instance. Furthermore, the custom requesters can be obscured and trashed when their parent window is sized too small. The full-size manual well organized, informative, and sprinkled with humor includes a tutorial, a glossary, and an index. It is not updated with the 2.1 enhancements, but these are detailed in a separate section. The online manual is simply a set of plain ascii files identical to the printed version; no browsing utility is included. There are a lot of reasons to consider Sample Wrench, not the least of which is its support for the SM1)I standard that allows sample transfers through SCSI ports. If your current sampler's tiny LC1> display or limited editing features are driving vou nutty, or if you’re ready to O i * t * perform sample format conversions, this is one Wrench to keep within reach. Darius Taghavy DarkSoftware’s Transition is designed for Amiga users interested in a batch cross-platform image converter who don’t need the speed, the options, or the pricetag of a full-blown image-processing package. The program’s limited image-processing capabilities include scaling, gamma, brightness, and the ability to turn an image into an emboss. Generic Appeal Don’t get me wrong I like the idea of having a “clebabelizer” type of program for the Amiga. Unfortunately, the number of formats that Transition converts is limited and hardly surpasses most public-domain conversion programs. The only unusual format it handles is PBMPlus a cross-platform format available on the Amiga in an extensive set of CLI commands. A look at the code in Transition's loaders and savers shows reference to utilities in the PBM suite, which confirmed the program’s claim as a front-end for PBM- derived code. In addition to PBM, Transition supports GIF, JPEG, PCX (ZSoft’s PC Paintbrush program format), and BMP (both Windows and OS 2 versions). 'Fhe fact that it supports so Few formats is perplexing, especially as it neglects so many obvious ones. Assuming that the PBM-compatible source code for formal conversions is available in the public domain, 1 question the logic for not including MacPaint, Taiga, or PICT formats. Put to the Test I First tried Transition on Texture Citv’s CD-ROM because I knew it contained several different formats. The only one Transition supported was PCX, and even that would not work. A quick look at the manual made it clear that Transition handles only 24-bit JPEG files; all TransitiotTs intuitive interface, tion in Art Department Professional (which displayed the image and required saving it to disk manually) took less than a minute. Alter each conversion process, or il an error occurs, all parameters are reset to their default values. If you forget to set the output file, or if you are trying brightness adjustments, you have to devote a goodly portion of time entering all the settings again. Furthermore, the height and width boxes display erroneous dimensions for JPEG images, the batch-processing option gives no indication of progress (though it seemed to work), and the program sporadically created corrupted Files. An Intuitionized front-end to the PBM utilities is a great idea, but tins product barely lakes advantage of its PBM capabilities. There’s plenty of room for growth in nearly every area. Q j t In the sparse but adequate nine-page manual, the developer states that more formats are planned for the future. Fd like to see support for more formats in the areas of loaders and savers. At this writing, it’s clear Transition is no match for the heavyweights, such as AD Pro and Imagemasler. Given time and some Fine-tuning, this low-cost alternative might show some promise in its next revision.

3. 0 ? Hard-drive installable. Off-disk copyprotection. BENEATI1 A STEEL Sky (Vir- gin UK. About $ 40) is heavy. Physically heavy. This masterful graphics adventure from Revolution. Coders of Lure of the 'Temptress and the Amiga version of Kings Quest VI, weighs in at a record fifteen disks (three more than The Adventures oi Willie beamish), and is fully six times the size of Lure. OK, so I sound like the back of an old Psygnosis manual. And, of course, size is meaningless if there’s no substance. But Steel Sky, designed with comic-book author Dave Gibbons (The Watchman), is also heavy in atmosphere. The subject matter is distinctly dark (though it is handled with a charming light touch). You play an unassuming fellow named Robert Foster, who is kidnapped from his home in a wasteland called The Gap whose residents adopted him as a child after the ’copter crash that killed his mother by security forces from the city. On the way out, they decimate the desert community. Something very strange is going on here. But again you prove lucky with ’copters. The security craft crashes while landing, and you’re free. But you’re in an unfamiliar place a dead-end walkway atop the city’s recycling plant, with one exit guarded, another leading to a plat- Robert Foster laces an oppressive futuristic world in “Sky.” form high in the air and a third, inaccessible, appearing to lead to the furnace. Your robot companion. Joey, has been reduced to a circuit board by the attack on The Gap. And you’re being sought by unpleasant men with guns for reasons you don’t understand. At this point, you’re not even sure who you are. But. As you will learn after completing the First sequence, you do have an ally somewhere. Thaf s a classical adventure-game structure, and it’s handled Lion heart That's a better name than its creators may have known. When released in Europe a couple of years back, this German-born arcade adventure |Thaiion USA, S39.95) represented the pinnacle of the form. In mid-1994, following its release here, it's still there. Lionheart indeed. The game itself is more or less a traditional arcade adventure "single white male with sword seeks long sideways walk; no smokers" but the presentation is extraordinary. The three difficulty levels don't simply pump in different numbers of the same enemies, but reinvent the game in significant ways. The "secret" areas are agreeably difficult to find, often requiring leaps of faith = or foolhardiness}. And the game has a wonderful leathery look: The foreground graphics are a glossy gray-green, which manages to suggest an ages-old accumulation of dead things, with parallax-scrolling clouds above, rising and falling (and refracting) water below, and purplish mountains to the rear. You'd swear it was AGA. Amberstar Before Ambermoon (previewed in March), there was Amberstar (Tha ion USA, $ 24.95). The notable difference between this German-built role-playing game (just recently released in the US) and the followup is that the sequel made extensive use of Legends of Valour-style free-scrolling. This one, which dates back a couple of years, uses the square-by-square shuffle that predated it. Which is not to say Amberstar seems old. The strengths of the sequel are in many cases strengths of the original among them shifting points- of-view, intelligent automapping, point-and-click conversations, intuitive inventory, nice graphics, and a pleasant mixture of tidiness and bigness to its dimensions. At the same time, combat can be stupefyingly dull, the perspective sometimes disjointed the characters you meet in the 3-D bits all seem child-size and the game's a mite too fast on an ’030-based machine to control easily. ? A Wow! Exquisite. A must for your games library. C Meets expectations. Good, solid performer. B Great fun. Plenty of entertainment value here. D Disappointing. Lots of room for Improvement. F A real stinker. Don’t waste your time. $ You may encounter some problems under this operating system and or require a PAL NTSC adapter.

• All orders are subject to credit card venlicatcn • Our Policies p r i; s ti r v K ; a m i; under a classical adventure-game engine. Revolution lias upgraded the ‘"Virtual Theater" system used in Lure to superb elVect. It is a model of intuition. (Hmmm, dial sounds familiar.) Ifyou want a description, you point at an object and click the left mouse button. To try to use it, point and click the right one. Ifyou want to have a peek at something in your possession, you skate the mouse up to top of the screen and a graphic inventory appears. Il vou want to move to a new location, vou have only to point at the exit and click. And so on and so forth. That neat, that simple. That elegant. And if that interface sounds svelte, it's also perfectly matched to the graphics. This is quite simply the best-looking graphics adventure ever done on a standard Amiga. (Steel Sky runs on the A1200 as is, but AGA versions are planned.) It doesn't have Litre’s hot and lurid glow, but then, this isn t a fantasy game. It’s set in an ugly, oppressive funiristic world; the city's a place of dust browns and concrete grays a 1984- isli city that looks as though it is wearing itself down with its own weight. However, the game’s never heavy-handed. The tone of the conversations (lots of them with lots of options and responses that seem sensitive to what you’ve seen and done elsewhere in the game) is closer to, say, LucasArts' Indiana Jones Sc the Kate of Atlantis. Vou only live once (unless you save) so why not enjoy yourself while you're alive? Joey is as whiny a cyborg as has kicked up his treads since C3LO (though he'll gel you out of many a tight spot). Your first exchange with security police over a matter of an ID card allegedly ch opped in porridge sounds like something old Guybrush Threcpwood would say. Can you imagine anything better?

Assassin: Special Edition Team 17 here continues its practice of updating earlier classics that started with the release of Alien Breed and Project-X. However, this remix of 1992's Assassin (about $ 20} is the first game that really needed to be reissued. This superb Strider variant didn't do as well as the publisher hoped, largely (to my thinking) on account of the difficulty of the opening levels. This version reshuffles the deck a bit it appears to start with you already inside the enemy base while preserving your character's range of abilities and freedom of movement through the enormous play areas. Not to mention the impeccable graphics, which extend to routine gameplay (the way darkness is conveyed) as much as special effects (the little puffs of smoke when the character squeals to a halt). A well-chosen update, and you can't beat the price. Here's a would-be console-beater that preserves the mechanics but neglects the fun. Wonderdog (Core Design, about $ 35) featuring a cute little hound who glides with his ears zips along through many a platformed, lollipop sub-level at super-Sonic speeds, with lots of bonus sections and not-unpleasant backdrops. You know the routine. But for its challenges, the game relies far too heavily on distribution and number of enemies who can be sent into the usual platform-game cannonball dive by simply zapping them with stars and not nearly enough on level design. It's ordinary, and in this very competitive field, that's the kiss of death. Sigh: Another well-meaning but incomplete design from Core. (They seemed to have a lot of these over the winter.) Pity, too, as Cyberpunks (about $ 35) is otherwise a well-put-together angled-down maze game. Moreover, Amberstar seems to have problems with certain instructions used by '020-and-up processors not to mention AmigaDOS 2.0, period and it crashed whenever a torch was ignited. (It worked after I ran Degrader
1. 3 with the "privilege" gadget enabled.) WONDERDOG Cyberpunks
1. 3 D'oh! I love The Simpsons like family, but don't much like what's been done to them on the Amiga, and the two most recent offerings (each from Virgin UK and about $ 35) don't change my mind much. These conversions of Acclaim arcade games don't even begin to do justice to the potential of Matt Groening's mustard-colored, four-fingered family. If you've seen the Fox TV show, you know "The Simpsons" thrives on a combustible chemistry of the domestic and the twisted. But if you played Bart Versus the World knowing nothing about the Simps, you'd think it was a not-too-good Saturday-morning cartoon. It's a good conversion of a mediocre game. Yes, it's pleasantly lighthearted, and, yes, the settings and challenges are varied here Bart's scaling the sails of a Chinese junk, here he's skateboarding along the Great Wall and, no, I can't complain about the barely-above-C64 graphics. (A Simpsons game that's a graphical tour-de-force wouldn't make sense.) But there's little clue as to what makes the show special (apart from the ending, if you lose); the box art has more character than this game. They didn't even get Krusty the Clown's hair color right. Quoth the Bart: Eat my shorts. Well, on second thought, Acclaim Virgin, just eat the waistband of the shorts. For while Krusty isn't much better than BvtW on the character issue, it is a polished, clever, and creative platformer puzzler a sort of Lem* mings-in-reverse that would be enjoyable (albeit a bit strange) if the Simpsons had never existed. ? You're running a sort of sci-fi baby patrol: Three gap-toothed gunsels roam largeish levels, teleporting into inaccessible areas, logging into computers, and collecting key cards that lead to other keycards that lead to still more keycards. The trouble is that the game is ultimately far too simple and not sufficiently interactive; it's more like a multidirectional arcade-adventure in camouflage. Items you collect automatically by passing over them are also used automatically in the appropriate spots, and when you don't have the right keycard, you're told which one you need. The three little fellows are welded together they walk only in single file and don't have any special abilities as individuals, a la The Lost Vikings. The only real challenge here is inventory management. T'ain't enough. ©1.3 ?

Not responsible for tvoooraphical errors. Extended Warranty Available U.S and Canada. The amoral TV clown is trying to coax the rats infesting his 60-level fun house into traps. However, the rodents are an uncomplicated lot they can't climb more than one block and are liable to fall victim to the fun house's built-in pitfalls before they find Krusty's, and so the clown has to steer them down the crooked path to doom using objects found around the maze. It all falls together nicely, and the manual's a scream as well. Go for it, man! Nothing is explosively wrong with the game itself and I suppose it's nice that the dino wields a camera in lieu of club but there's also nothing particularly right with it: ugly enemies, routine scenery, a heretofore- unknown Jurassic talent for vertical tunneling, and a mundane name. Whether or not there's anything prehistoric in Loch Ness, I could wish there was one more. Dinosaur Detective Agency There's no really persuasive reason for this banal arcade game [Alternative, about $ 35] to exist. That is, there's no reason for it to involve dinosaurs, save for the popularity of a little item called Jurassic Park. And there's no reason for it to involve a detective agency, save someone's need to call the lead character Sher- loch Ness. Suburban Commando ©1.3

This amalgam of arcade styles = Afternative, about $ 35), based on a three-year-old Hulk Hogan movie, tries to be many things to many people and doesn't handle any of them sufficiently well to nail the pin. The horizontal shoot-'em- up level, three platform levels (the cleverest parts of the game), and three Streetfighter-ish "boss" levels are original but haunted by the spectre of banality.

Ami Board (Internet) Don’t be fooled. This 3.0-only chess game displays only eight colors, but it plays an exceptionally solid game if not quite at Uchess level and is highly configurable. The pieces are loaded from an IFF brush, so you can create your own, and its support for PGN (Portable Game Notation) files allows use of thousands of chess games available by anonymous FTP. BombPac32 (Internet and CIS) Well, look who’s here, BombPae is from one Oliver Wagner, who’s best known for his quintet of Qix clones (the Bally series) and Escape from Jovi from the late ’80s. This puzzle game the sort that was all the rage three years ago on the IBM arms the yellow dot-eater with wall-destroying bombs and sets him down in search ofkevs in some wicked mazes. One of the best of its kind. Hoi (Internet and CIS) The original version of this plat former was a commercial game planned for release by Innerprisc and finally issued by Holly- ware- bur the AGA version has somehow wound up as PD. It's not a full treatment only the gradient backdrop is AGA but it’s still a tough little number, and Hoi (a little dinosaur) is cute as the dickens. .And while we’re on the subject of commercial games released in freely distributable form, you’ll be interested to learn that Uchess author Roger Uzttn’s International Championship Wrestling remember Avatar Consulting? -lias turned up on the Internet.

It’s the old ball & paddle, sure, ancl I do wish the explosion of the bat was properly animated, but it’s the best-looking ball & paddle since Arkanoid first hit the bricks, and if you register, you'll get a board editor and the ability to play the hundreds of user-created boards that have already been uploaded to BBSs around the world. New World (Widely available) The most complex and least conventional of this bunch, and also, alas, the most problematic. I he good news is that we finally have an Amiga version of Seven Cities of Gold that doesn’t require Kickstart 1.1, and with nice Amiga amenities and an AGA-specific executable (along with one tor 2.0 ECS machines) to boot. It’s the classic game of exploration and exploitation. The trouble is getting it to run. F niortimately, N wasn't fully tested before release (the author only has an A3000), and versions through 1.31 have significant problems namely, lockups and the inability to recognize game maps. However, author Kevin Roll has made a good-faith effort to squash the bugs, and I was able to wrap up this review with one quick fix that appeared to work perfectly. Get yourself some playtesiers, Kevin, and keep at it. You’re onto something good here. Solitaire (Portal) No cute little pics adorn this relatively obscure and sedate AGA version of Canfield the default-card set displays the CBM logo but that leaves you free to focus on the game. And despite the absence of some basic features, that game (evidently based on a Windows version) is quite well done, with a creamy display that's ample reply to the VGA solitaire games so common on the IBM. Tetris Duel AGA (Internet and CIS) Please. Not another falling-blocks game. Almost everything von need to know about this one is in the title: It’s Tetris, it i has a two-player mode (and some cute tricks therein), and it has 256 colors. Thank vou. Don’t call us. Updates: The first AGA PD game, Uchess, is still being relentlessly upgraded and is now up to version 2.83. It continues to decimate the commercial competition, and it now complements the ‘‘large” version (which requires at least 10 megs of fast RAM) with a “tiny” one lor machines with two to four megs. Planned: An AGA version of the killer artillery duel Scorched Tanks( now up to 1.77 in shareware, 1.8 registered) is being contemplated. Author Mike W elch is waiting for the AGA version of AMOS Professional. (I Ie s currently working on a version of the Atari classic, Joust.) ¦ 400% INCREASE IN SPEED ON AN AMIGA 4000 68040 25MHZ!

- Full Two Year warranty The Warp Engine Series of Accelerators is a break-through in Amiga Expansion design. The Warp Engine comes in titree versions for the Amiga Toaster 4000 and three for the Amiga 3000.; % All Warp Engines are fully upgradable to 40!vftlz by just changing the CPU and the Clock Oscillator! The Warp Engine uses standard 72 Pin STOMs = NO CUSTOM SIMMS )and allows the use of up to four different sizes of SIMMs (4,8,16 and 32MB) at the same time, jgy.. j YlHEf Jo V jfJt Unlike other companare only available from them, and or they only allow the same size SIMMs to be Installed making St necessary to remove your old SIMMs before you can add larger SIMMs. The NCR53C710-1 SCSI-1! Fast 32BHJ3MA Bus Master Processor Wra it the Fastest available with its direct cpilb tipn to the 040 chip-t provides up to IGMB s Transfers anil allow sTlk O to reiMi90% to 98% of its processing power! Zorro III Memory boares cannot wgach 70% of the speed of the Motherboard Memory while Warp Engtnesroeal 040 Burst Memory is many times fa?tfrr than the Motherboard Memory! The 4000 Series The 28MHz Warp Engine comes with an 040 socket, four SIMM sockets and the NCR SCSL2 Controller. This is a very cost effective entry because the A4000 already has an 040 chip installed and 4 to 16MB of Fast Ram on the Motherboard. You simply remove the CBM CPU fcard and then remove the 040 chip and initaH this onto the Warp Engine. You can also remove the Memory from the Matlierbbard and instalHt ontd tfTe Warp Engine. ThU produces a 25MHz 040 Accelerator with 4 to 16MB of High Speed Local 040 32Btt Burst Rim and;the fastest SCSI-2 Hard Disk Controller available for the Amiga. You do not need to purchase more FastRam immediately. The Warp Engine provides all of this expansion without using a single Zorro Slot! The 33MHz the 40MHz versions include the 040 Processors. The 33MHz board requires 70ns Ram to work at % highest speed and the 40IVpiz board requires 60ns Ram although you can insert wait states to use slower Ram. | The 3000 Series: There are three versions available for the A300Q which in all aspects are the same as the 4000 except that the Ram expansion is 64MB. | How Fast Is The Warp Engine?

Q. recently purchased an Amiga 12(H) and f)lan to use an .STTM monitor with it. The monitor supports 30-38 Khz and 47- 50 Hz modes, which I presume mentis that it can use only certain display drivers, such as Eu ro 72. My first question: Are there any monitor drivers in the public domain that allow the display of lower resolutions on my monitort Second, is there any software normally opening and operating in the lower screen resolutions that can he forced into higher resolutions of Multi Scan and Euro72? Fred E. Schnarre Alexandria, I 'irginia
A. In the case of the AGA-equipped A1200, it’s the monitor, not the OS. That determines display limitations. The PD program MONED, by Raul A. Sobon, is just what von need. It allows you to edit and customize the monitor drivers bundled in AmigaDOS 2.0 3.0 to match the signals of older VGA-type monitors. Upgraded in recent months, the program now offers an Intnitionized interface that makes it easier to use than earlier versions. You’ll fmd it on BBSs and networks, with a recommended shareware donation of $ f>. For $ 20, Sobon will send you the source code. Your second question is a tough one, as a number of variables determine which programs can be set to new screen inodes and which cannot. A good rule of thumb is that if a program opens on an AmigaDOS 2.0 or higher Intuition or public screen, it might be configurable to the same resolution of your Workbench. It’s safe to say that most programs = games, for example) that employ custom screens are usually locked into whatever screen mode is hard-coded into them. Dpaint and Picasso II?
Q. have a 68030-equipped Amiga 2000 and want to purchase a 24-hit display card that would let me run Deluxe Paint I'm A (iA modes. 117 He A la no System I S 's Retina apparently works with Dpaint, albeit slowly, I'm confused about the Picasso II 24-lht display card, hi your review (Jan. '94) you said the card was not compatible with Dpaint. However; in the article entitled lt24-l)i( Graphics hoards Revisited" (May '94), you said it does work with Dpaint IV. Which statement is correctt Jimmy Matthews Miami Beach, Florida
A. According to Noahji’s, the exclusive US distributor of the Retina, the display card will indeed work with DeluxePaint IV. 'flte software for the board has been upgraded and performs better than earlier versions, bin still works rather slowly. Although fve had plenty of experience with our long-term Picasso II board, I turned to Expert Services, the board’s manufacturer. I hey claim that you’re bound to experience some problems in trying lo use Dpaint on a Picasso 11-equipped Amiga. The May '94 article simply states that Dpaint works best with the Picasso II, in comparison to other display cards. On a bright note, Expert Services is working with Electronic Arts to develop a version of Dpaint that will address and correct those problems. Trial tests with a beta version of the software have been positive, so stay tuned to find out when the new Dpaint is ready. Laser Printer Woes
Q. After experiencing Toaster Paint problems with my Fargo Prim era and offset problems with my TIP PaintJet printer; I've narrowed my choices for a new laser printer to either the I IP-4 or the I P-4M. Do I need to get custom printer drivers for either of these, or will the drivers included with my AmigaDOS 2.1 software sufficef Tony Goulas Fort St. James, British Columbia, Canada
A. For the most part, the printer drivers bundled with 2.1 work line with HP printers. The Amiga Roundtable on Genie lists file 22414, an expanded I IP-4 printer driver. There are many others in the public domain, and a great commercial package called Studio Printer (available through Noabji’s for $ 89) offers a complete collection of popular printer drivers. As you’re also a Primera user, you may be interested in Studio Printer DS ($ 159), a package that contains all the Studio Printer drivers, plus others for the Primera. Download Distress
Q. I'm on a VMS system that's connected to the Internet. I retrieve files from an FTP site, then download them using the Kermit- 32 protocol (neither Xmodem nor .modem seem to work properly) to PC-formatted floppy disks. I later use Cross DOS to copy them to my Amiga, Problems arise with DMS-compressed files. When I decompress them, the trackdisk demos and games work fine, but those that create bool blocks for floppies cause system crashes when I tty to run them. During downloads, I've tried Fixed, ASCII, and Binary modes to no avail. Do you have any suggestions ? Sean Courtney Joliet, Illinois
A. Your best bet is to get a faster modem for the Amiga and use that to download your Amiga DMS files. Kermit is a popular transfer protocol on the CompuServe network, but it does “pad” downloaded files with additional bytes of data. I've had the same problem downloading executable Mac files with the Amiga. Regardless of the protocol used, the}' become corrupted either in the conversion or transfer process and won’t execute on the Mac. ¦ Send your questions to Help Key, do Amiga Wo rid Editorial, 80 Elm St., PO Box 802, Peterborough, NH 03458.

I was shocked when 1 heard the news about Commodore dosing its doors and ending production of the linest computers the world lias ever seen. But ( must say that after reading ilie June issue of Amiga World, 1 find it hard to believe that a computer that has so much going for it would he snuffed out so easily. I feel something good will come out of'this. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would appreciate a clear, level-headed view of what this means to the Amiga Toaster enthusiast. W hat do you say, guvs? It is crucial that we continue to support Amiga vendors and magazines such as yours to keep the product development alive for the forsce- able future. Folks, there is absolutely no reason lo ditch your Amiga system in favor of a PC or Mac just yet. Personally, 1 plan to keep my Amiga until the silicon breaks down into dust! Commodore may be gone, but the Amiga will live on. Russell P. Jones Address a navailable Well, it has finally happened Commodore has gone belly up. The big question now is whither Amiga? 1 took a big leap Iasi December, when I sold my trusty of A500 and bought a shiny new A1200. The dealer promised me that Emplant would he out for the 1200 within a month. But will it ever come nowr Can we expect any new software? Are OS upgrades a thing of the past? Some folks have opined that the only future for the Amiga is for Toaster users. But what about us devoted Ami- gans who don't want to do video? Most important, will some forward- thinking company buy up the Amiga line? Are the rumors of Sony’s interest true? At least. Sony knows how to market its products. Let’s hope someone can keep the Amiga afloat! Tom Knapp La ramier, Pen nsyh>a n ia So Commodore is dead. But what about all those devoted Amigans? And all those committed third-party developers? It’s not like one of those computer markets where interest has just died out. There are still plenty of people actively involved. So how about this: fhe Macs and IBMs are going to the PowerPC chip. Commodore was going to go that way, too, hut didn’t get that Personally, 1 plan to keep my Amiga until I lie silicon breaks down into dust! Far. But what if we just forget about the machines? A PowerPC machine can run on both Mac and DOS Windows because it doesn’t matter what OS. It uses. Why not rewrite the Amiga OS for PowerPC? Then vou could buy wliat- d J ever PowerPC machine you want, get the Amiga OS, and you’d have an Amiga with the latest hardware technology. I’m sure NewTek and others would cooperate with any such endeavor. Derek Veit Aberdeen, Scotland I am an Amiga owner concerned about its future in view of Commodore’s recent bankruptcy. CBM was in debt to several major companies, one of which might continue to produce the Amiga (there is a strong chance that Hewlett- Packard may he ibis company). 1 am interested in starling a movement to influence those companies that depend on the Amiga for a portion of their revenues to advertise, perhaps via an Amiga logo image, in products the Amiga has been instrumental in producing, e.g., Prcvue Guide channel, Babylon 5, SeaQuest, RoboCop, and other TV programs, as well as advertisements the Amiga has produced or displayed. If the media were lo he blasted with all the places the Amiga impacts the 'IV, movie, and video industries, it might just give confidence to some company to arrange to continue production of the Amiga. LeEric Marvin Atwater, California New Columns 1 have read AmigalVorld since 1987, and I must say that the latest additions, Denny on DOS, Prime-Time PD, Video 7 in Locus, and CD32 Games are the most refreshing changes I have seen you make. Although 1 have a stack of AmigaDOS reference guides, 1 was surprised to learn several shortcuts 1 did not know. The Denny on DOS column has rekindled mv interest and j has got me cracking those books once O Q again.
C. Dale Chitwood Jr. Dededo, Guam An Open Letter to CD32 Developers 1 think you are ignoring a large segment of the Amiga gaming market: Amiga owners like me who have CD- ROM drives for their machines. As the owner of an A4000 equipped with a NEC 3Xp drive, I have no incentive to buy a CD32. Why don’t you make games that are compatible with other CD-ROM-equipped AGA machines? If you did, I am sure your games would appeal to a far wider audience and make you lots more ’ money. Leslie S.

Speedometer v3.23" speed comparison (68040 CPUs’) 33Mhz A4000 vs. 40Mhz 840AV - Hey That’s not fairt EMPLANT is a hardware device that is designed to allow the emulation of virtually any computer using the Amiga. A simple software driver and ROM s) from the computer to emulated are all that is required! The hardware holds the key to emulation speed. Custom programmable logic allows the EMPLANT hardware to actually become the exact hardware of the computer it is emulating. Multiple emulations of different computers can be ran at the same time using a single EMPLANT board! Macintosh® Emulation Module The Macintosh emulation module is a 'generic' Macintosh with the speed of the emulation depending on the processor your Amiga is using. An A3000
- is equivalent to a MAC llci. An A4000 is equivalent to a Quadra 900. Using a 33Mhz 68040 accelerator (such as the RCS Excallber board), emulation speed can be greater than an 840AV Macintosh! (See speed comparison above) Support for up to 16 colors is provided for non-AGA machines. A4000 owners can use a full 256 colors! Up to 24 bit (16 m tion+) colors is supported using 3rd party video boards such as: Picasso II, EGS-Spectrum, Vivid-24. Rainbow II, Rainbow HI, Visiona Paint, Merlin, Retina, Retina Z3, Piccolo EGS110 24, and OpalVision! ...and we'll support any future video boards that are suitable for use with the emulation! , Like ALL of the emulation modules that will be released for use with the EMPLANT hardware, the Macintosh emulation module MULTITASKS with the Amiga's operating system! You can simply pull down or flip screens and get back to the Amiga side! ...and the emulation stays running at full speed! Future Emulation Modules Since the EMPLANT's hardware is so versatile, a completely new and different computer can be emulated by ust changing the emulation softwar patch and the ROM(s). IBM 486DX, Atari 400 800, and Apple lle c emulations are in beta testing now! Atari ST, and C64I128 emulations are plannt for the future! You need no additional hardware for future emulation modules. All necessary hardware is already built into the EMPLANT board! Four different versions of EMPLANT are available, ranging in price from $ 279.95 to $ 399.95.

AmigaYision, for instance, has an Arexx port, but the program allows Arexx to control it iu only a couple ol ways. By contrast, ADPro allows Arexx to control its full spectrum of features (“full support”) and Arexx commands can even add functionality to the program.
