It is no small wonder that the winner of the Amiga has a home page of their own. (See this and other home pages for the Amiga in the AndFurthermore . article on page 48 of this issue.) Escom's home page is a good indication of how the entire company looks at their current position in the computer market. While there are press releases, text from speeches, and more (some are in both English and German) for the Amiga, the site contains as much or more information on their Commodore PC campaign. Escom is an entire company and Amiga Technologies

The Amiga Community continues to grow in very unusual ways. It is no wonder that the Amiga has its share of places on the World Wide Web. Since its introduction, the Amiga has been used by people who were doing more in communications than in other platforms. The Amiga was the first to incorporate color graphics, video, and sound in its documents. What could be better for multimedia or home pages?
When the Amiga community was left wondering who would eventually purchase the Amiga, ardent Amiga fans spent hours on the internet firing rumors and ideas back and forth. Even the front running Amiga bidders used the net to announce their plans and ask for comments and questions from the? Amiga community. It is no small wonder that the winner of the Amiga has a home page of their own. (See this and other home pages for tire Amiga in the AndFurthermore... article on page 48 of this issue.)

• E&A'M.ppjtisilct.* EaauaeMfcrACE
i. mi:nainlama maim vit Veftautflt mpdwiaBJ.es. All Escom's home
page is a good indication of how the entire company looks at
their current position in the computer market. While there are
press releases, text from speeches, and nrore (some are in
both English and German) for the Amiga, the site contains as
much or more information on their Commodore FC campaign. Escom
is an entire company and Amiga Technologies is only one part
of the operation. As much as this frustrates most Amiga fans,
it is a fact and one with which we must learn to accept.
As of this writing, Amiga Technologies has yet to announce who will market the Amiga or how it will be distributed in North America. They are still talking with a number of groups, but their insistence on finding a partner who will be a partner and provide all the funding necessary- for marketing, makes it extremely difficult for most organizations.
To Market Marketing in North America is an expensive business. With over two hundred million people spread across an entire continent, it requires a great deal of marketing muscle to reach into all of tire important areas. Even if the marketing is restricted to specific geographical regions, the cost of preparing and delivering a marketing nressage is extraordinary. So, if Amiga Technologies is serious about their demands of a marketing partner in North America, than the new partner will need all the help they can get in being as innovative as possible.
One of the new reasonably priced methods of getting a company's specific message to the public has been discussed here before, the infomercial. Now Apple Computer has joined in this rapidly- developing art form. In an attempt to counter the recent media blitz created by Microsoft and their introduction of Windows '95, Apple rereleased their Performa infomercial.
_____ The half hour spot follows the changes in a family as they introduce an Apple Macintosh into their everyday lives.
This story is interrupted at specific spots with general and focused commercials for the Performa scries of Macintosh computers. By the end of the half hour, the Mac had brought the family financial rewards, increased grade averages, and even a new love interest. I expected to see the Mac making breakfast or, at the least, ordering dinner for the family by the close.
No, I am not being cynical, just jealous. If Apple Computer can see that this is a viable way to reach their potential customers, it probably is. The only problem is that the Amiga could do a much better job of the whole thing.
Imagine an Amiga infomercial with user comments from people who use the Amiga on some of the major Hollywood movies and television shows. Consider the Amiga's use in music, engineering, performing arts, and more. Granted, demonstrating the Amiga as a business machine would be a S’ retch, but it could be shown as an alternative use with specific software.
Infomercials are just one possible way to get the Amiga into the public eye while Amiga home pages are another.
The hope is to rationally demonstrate the Amiga's abilities in as many formats and manners as possible.
Win Big Money OK, maybe not b g money, but you could win one monetary prize not to mention the acclaim a id respect of your friends and fellow Arr iga supporters.
Don't forget to check out the Bit Movie '95 article on page 26 of this issue. Then see the information on page 28 that explains the contest ard deadlines for Bit Movie '96.
In the past, this contest has been won by a large number of Amiga users.
This year, the contest 1 ommittee did not bother to note on whic h platforms the artwork was created, i believe they did this to encourage non-Amiga magazines to cover the contest more fully. Whatever the case, taking h ime even an honorable mention frcm this international event is a uniqu 2 pleasure and i want to encourage all if the talented Amiga artists to take advantage of this opportunity.

Figure 1. Here is what you can expect in Final Writer 4’s Preferences settings. Each Preferences module has a number of resident folders dedicated to your customization of the software, FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS, the same number of years that I have been involved with the Amiga it so happens, 1 have been enmeshed in a career as a technical writer. All of my writing, no matter what computer platform I may be writing about, is done on my Amiga 2000.1 went through all of the word-processing software available for the Amiga over the years, from Excellence and Scribble to ProWrite to others you have
never even heard of. It was a maddening chase, one that Final Writer - Release 4 D I Untitled - Main (Body) Project Preferences Line: 0.5 in.
General coincided with the writing of my doctoral thesis.
Ah yes, my thesis. I remember it well. I was using a Commodore 64 at the time, in addition to my new Amiga
1000. All 1 had for a printer was a 9-pin dot matrix, and since
there were no decent word-processors out lor the Amiga at
that early date (or at least 1 didn't know about them), 1
did the first draft of the thesis on tire C-64 and output
it to the 9-pin. I can hear the excited comments of the
professors on Isis am slap my review panel to this day as I
handed them 600 pages of research and conjecture, all held
within the jaggy alpha-numeric confines of a dotmatrix
They threatened to take severe action unless I agreed to do the whole thing again in a more readable and kinder-to-the-committee format. They were not impressed by the technology, and suggested strongly that my next draft be tvped on a typewriter so they would not be forced to suffer through potential blindness as a result of my technological toys.
I thought I had it nailed when I purchased a copy of WordPerfect for the Amiga (remember that version?).
After all, here was one of the most prestigious companies in the computer industry addressing my wondrous platform. I got the software home, unwrapped it, and began a month long journey into terror, reinforced by bad documentation and loads of the most arcane convoluted command sequences I have ever run across then or since. That WordPerfect bundle now sits with the spiders somewhere in my basement.
I came to realize then that feature laden word processing software often comes at the price of inputting long Over the years I have been especially pleased with Softwood's service as well as their products, Softwood has also stuck by the Amiga through thin times and thinner Final Writer - Release J a | Untitled - Moln (Body) jfklEjFzJzkJd JQ laiB jjir BpgJ rjj4.1j|[Fsi julfT k|LrdVlD|Q|B|®k ¦f* or -p TT Zoom

Strings of logically meaningless commands, taking more away from the creative moment than is invited.
What I was looking for was software that would allow me to write as the ideas came without too much preparatory hassle. 1 also came to know that I wanted the extras to be embedded in logical easy-to-remember order, so that when 1 wanted to call on a needed feature, I could do so without taking my mind off of the writing task at hand, i also wanted something affordable, and a package that came from a developer who hopefully would be around for a while, so that support services could be expected when needed. That seemed to be a lot to ask, and I wasn't sure if I was hoping for too much. Then 1
discovered Final Copy.
Final Copy was SoftWood's first level word processor. It entered the fray when there were quite a few contenders. The difference it offered, from the very start, was that it seemed to be very full featured at a good price (1 think it was around $ 100.00 at the time), and its interface looked clean and well structured (even in its ads).
So, looking with heavy heart at the thick wad of word processing disks I had accumulated over the years, I decided to take the plunge again,., an older Sancho Paza in search of a dreamed windmill.

1 Figure 4. Dozens of icons can be integrated into the FW4 interface to make your work visibly interactive.
SoftWood has accomplished a major number of alterations both to the interface and the underlying structure of the program.
About the time it arrived, I was knee deep in writing a contracted book about Amiga multimedia topics (I'll bet there are at least twenty copies still in existence). I scrubbed my hard drive free from other contaminating word processor influences, installed it, and have been a SoftWood fan ever since.
SoftWood's move to FinalWriter, though I think FinalCopy is still marketed, took advantage of tire then new Amiga 4000s and their AGA 256 color capacities. FW (FinalWriter) also added graphics capabilities, moving it more towards desktop publishing environs.
Over the years I have been especially pleased with SoftWood's service as well as their products, SoftWood has also stuck by the Amiga through thin times and thinner, and the rebirth of the system under the aegis of ESCOM is due in large part to similar brave attitudes from developers all around.
So, before we get enmeshed in looking at the new features of FinalWriter 4, the latest SoftWood release of their flagship product, let's all stand and give a loud thankful cheer of recognition to a company that represents a value added Amiga asset.
Thanks SoftWood! Now, to tire details of FW4, What’s New?
In version 4, SoftWood has accomplished a major number of alterations both to the interface and the underlying structure of the program.
The least attractive aspect of this is that vintage users (like myself) have to learn how to perfornr old tricks with new tools. There is, thankfully, a minimum of re-leaming required for experienced users, but it will take a couple of days to get used to the new and altered possibilities.
As for new users, there paradoxically might be less of a learning curve.
This is because the manual is so clearly laid out that initial learning and use is made intuitive quickly. This is more than a theory. It's something I tested out with a friend who just received the software, and commented upon how surprisingly easy it was to be up and running with FW4.
Grammar correction is one of the hottest items in word processing these days, no matter what the platform.
Some of us need it, some of us like it, and some of us (I must confess) disdain it even though it may be needed and useful. Wherever your opinion falls, FW4 has it, and it has it in spades. There are over forty' choices that can interrupt your writing if you use "sexist"expressions, gender specific expressions, archaic words, formatting errors, and lots more.
As for me, my writing is full of archaic expressions, and 1 am quite able to stay away from sexist statements on my own. I am trying to be open to the fact that others, especially students, may need all the help they can get to succeed in the paper chase.
Luckily, FW4 allows you to toggle any or all of these on or off, so older recalcitrant dudes like me may have only "Spelling", "Capitalization", and "Double Words" toggled on. On the aesthetic side of it all, many authors consider some of their idiosyncrasies as one with their style, something schools fail to realize in the quest for the perfect paper.
There is another similar feature that you may find instructive if not useful, but one which I wish I could remove. In the "Statistics" module, the item that tells you how many words you have used thus far and other quantitative information, there are now listings of what grade levels the software thinks you're writing for.
This has been determined by something called the Flesch, Coleman, and Bormuth scoring systems.
I don't object to this addition (especially when an editor, but not the editor of Amazing,., tells me to use simpler words so the audience that is at a tenth grade reading level can understand). What I do object to is that this requester, which 1 use often to check word count and which in the past came up in seconds, now takes about a minute to appear.
This is not acceptable, and should be corrected as soon as possible. 1 would suggest a toggle that allows the user to choose whether or not all of the extra data is needed. Just in case you think the time delay is based on the slowness of my system, let me tell you that I'm running FW4 on an A2000 with an '040 board and forty megs of RAM. By the way, my writing usually lists out as "fairly difficult" and "college level". Is that bad?
An added attribute that I really enjoy in FW4 is the way that preferences are now addressed and set. In FW3, and also in most other competing software, there is one main preferences panel (not counting the separate ones for importing graphics).
Now, there are preferences in many of the pull down menus: Project, View, Graphics, Tools, and User. Each of these is arranged so that specific areas can be set one at a time.
Let's take the example of the Tools Preferences, since it contains the "Grammar" field mentioned above.
Preferences folders are segmented into interactive folders which bring items to the foreground when the folder's name is clicked on. In the Tools Preferences are three folders. Speller, Hyphenation, and Grammar. Each allows you to customize these attributes to create the word processing world you feel most comfortable with.
And that's the real story behind this article. When I say "FW5" I'm not speaking facetiously. I am about as certain as ice in Vermont in January that there will indeed be a FW5, because SoftWood has not only stood by the Amiga, it has continued to provide writers of every persuasion with what 1 consider the best, most intuitive word processor around today,., bar none.
When I think of the Amiga, 1 think of personal customization, a different attitude than that evidenced by other platform communities that think more of homogeneity and sameness as the way to go. As evidenced by the new Preferences folders in FVV4, this same obsession with personalization is enhanced. FVV4 is part of the Amiga mentality in this regard.

The cursors position and to the top of a document. There is also a neat time date area just in case you forget how long you have been sitting there. This feature is really a part of the new interface customizing attitude evidenced by the software globally.
Not only does FW4 allow you to decide what you want the software to do, hut also how it looks when it does it. You can toggle and or move just about every item on the interface, moving lists of buttons to the side or top of the screen, or toggling them off for a simpler approach. No more pull down menus for bold and italic settings either. They are addressable with visual buttons on-screen.
Most of the FW3 features have been left intact, except for one of my favorites that I am lobbying to get put back. I loved assigning fonts to the function keys, but in FW4 that has become a more convoluted process. Oh well, maybe in FW5.

StereoLithography: Teaching Your Old Amiga New Tricks Alliant Techsystems has created a process that gives solid form to ideas.
As we all know, the high-profile use of the Amiga has not changed much over the years except with the unveiling of the New Tek Toaster Flyer, and its most powerful tool to date, Lightwave 3D. Almost everyone has channel surfed their way tlrrough episodes of Sea Quest, Star Trek, Babylon 5, and even the PBS kiddie thriller Barney. All of these encompass the Amiga technology. It seems that any new uses or discoveries for the Amiga lately are either graphic or video oriented.
Kind of a laser gun into a bucket of polymer surfboard resin and, cowabunga, you have an exact, detailed model of your creation. This is StereoLithography, in a process developed by Alliant Techsystems.
This new technology opens the doors for an inexpensive way to make movie props, prototype parts for mold casting and manufacturing, and countless other projects including paper weights and ashtrays for your favorite coffee table.
Ken Van Brocklin of Alliant Techsystems explained that the StereoLithography Apparatus (SLA) is a computer controlled, high precision laser system which produces three The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of Imagine if there were a way to take the 3D object you have created and shoot your image through some St. Basil’s Cathedral as created in solid form from a virtual computer model by means of StereoLithography™.
Dimensional objects from a liquid polymer resin. The computer that prepares the files for building on the SLA is referred to as the workstation. The SLA itself is called the buildstation.
The SLA produces three dimensional objects by directing a laser beam onto the surface of a 10 inch by 10 inch vat of photosensitive liquid resin. A surface layer of the liquid becomes solid as it is exposed lo the laser beam. A vertical elevator system lowers each newly formatted layer into the vat where it is covered by a new layer of photo-sensitive liquid resin. Thin cross-sectional layers of the object, each adhering to the layer below it, are produced one at a time to form the resulting solid object from tire bottom up.
The Basic Steps The four major steps of the StereoLithography process are the CAD process, part preparation, setup and build, and post processing. StereoLithography was created by f D Systems of Valencia, California. Alliant Techsystems developed the process of preparing and verifying the model for use with the Syndesis Corporation's STL Converter.
"The idea of converting Lightwave objects into files that could be read by our StereoLithography apparatus (SLA) came about when we had a project that required us lo use 3D models that were created in Pro Engineer.

The Lightwave 3D program, and a gun modeled for some top military secret project or something. The likenesses were exact and lifelike.
The critical part of this process is finishing touches on the STL. Converter, John Foust from Syndesis Corp. heard what they were doing, and called offering to write an STL.converter that would be solid modeling program that is used to design parts for use in manufacturing and rapid prototyping. The models were to be used in an animation sequence for a marketing video."
"The idea of converting Lightwave objects into files that could be read by our stereoiithography apparatus (SLA) came about when we had a project that required us to use 3D models that were created in Pro Engineer."
One of Alliant Techsystems' engineers wrote a converter that allowed them to move the Pro Engineer 3D model into a format Lighwave could read via the SLA interface. This would not only allow them to visualize the prototype part in action through animation using Lightwave, it would also give the marketing rep a physical model to show the customer.
About the time they were putting compatible with Interchange Plus.
They did Beta testing using his STL.converter, and having access to Interchange Pius as the front end of the process, allowed access to many other 3D programs besides Lightwave for conversion to StereoLithography.
The Solid Evidence I have held and played with images created in the form of the Starship Enterprise, a Triceratops from to include as many polygons as possible to insure accurate detail in the resin cast. So as long as there is an Amiga, I am sure there will be ways to teach this old dog new tricks.

¦AO AsimCDFS 3.0 by R. Sham ms Morticr Enlighten your CD-ROM with AsimCDFS , a compilation of useful modules that allow your Amiga to speak to your CD-ROM, My Amiga network consists of four systems. Though they are all tied together for access to each other's hardware and software when needed, there are times when my work requires that only one be operating.
This is why each Amiga has its own dedicated CD-ROM unit. The Amiga doesn't recognize CD-ROM players (or CD-R's, CD-Recorders) automatically, but must be informed of their presence. For that reason, and others that I will share with vou in this article, I have found that a vital part of my setup is the software that makes the CD-ROMs smart, AsimCDFS.
AsimCDFS (CDFS stands for CD File System) is a compilation of useful modules that allow your Amiga to speak to your CD-ROM. All of the standard read calls to your hard drive (CD CDO, Dir CDO, Copy, List,..) can be used to access the CD-ROM once the software is installed. File transfer programs like Directory Opus and others can also be used to read and transfer files from the CD. AsimCDFS is really an alternative file system that interposes itself between the targeted media (the CD) and Amiga DOS.
AsimCDFS works on any Amiga with a CD-ROM drive, CDTV systems, and CD-32 modules, as long as a floppy drive and a keyboard are included.
AsimCDFS supports most major CD-ROM drives with a listing included in the documentation. If you think your CD-ROM drive may be unsupported by the software, give AsimWare a call before purchasing the AsimCDFS package. The media supported include all ISO %60, High Sierra or 11FS (MAC Cds with incorporated data forks) formatted CD's.
Installation is simple, deftly guided through a standard installation procedure. By the way, SCSI and IDE CD-ROM units are supported, as are hard drives that write to CD-R units (allowing the specific hard drive to he identified as a CD unit for ease in the writing process), and even DOS files that masquerade as a CD-ROM device.
In the 3.0 version of the software, all options can be set in a special Preferences Editor included with the software. Some of the options include the AutoStart DiskChanger, which can be set to always, never, or targeted to start when either two-plus or three- plus partitions are encountered on the media (for Mac disk access and Kodak Photo Cds).
A "ChangerPath" option allows you to teli your system exactly where the DiskChanger program can be flsihTunes 2.2 - HotKey = aIt esc: 3 Exclude?

Found. This is especially helpful if you change the software's location after it is installed.
A very unique feature actually allows you to bool from a CD-ROM itself. This is verv useful if you are going to run from a CDTV or CD-32 system. Some other commands are LUN specific: Ignore LUN.s on open, Combine multiple LUNs, and Maxi- mum LUN. These commands are needed if you have a Pioneer DRM- 60X and a few other drives, so they can be incorporated into the system seamlessly.
AsimCDFS is really an alternative file system that interposes itself between the targeted media (the CD) and Amiga DOS.
Buffer and Photo CD Options The important thing to realize about this software is that it is much more than just a bridge to your CD- ROM player, it brings your CD-ROM to interactive realms that wake it up to its full potential. The options tell the story.
You can, for instance, use another CDFS utility to pre-determine the FileHandler Pool Size. Sounds esoteric doesn't it? Actually, this allows users with limited memory on the one hand, and large BBS operators on tire other, to configure their systems for best possible use and speed.
CDFS offers the same kind of customization for FileLock Pools, File Buffers and sizes, and Directory Buffers and sizes. You can even specify what type of memory (Fast or Chip) will be used for buffers. All of the terms and operations are discussed thoroughly in the manual.
If you've ever accessed graphics from a Kodak PhotoCD, you quickly realize that this is a very different animal from a standard graphic file.
Each PhotoCD image comes in a proprietary format that includes many different image sizes and resolutions for eacli image, so that both desktop publishing (higher resolution) and video (lower resolution) uses are supported. Both Kodak and Corel Corporation produce PhotoCDs.
Special translation is needed for software to incorporate PhotoCD access, and AsimCDFS includes this potential. You can set PhotoCD parameters for your system by configuring the AsimCDFS PhotoCD Options requester. This allows for PhotoCD detection, the buffering choices for PhotoCD thumbnail icons, and PhotoCD icon parameter settings.
Playing Your Tunes AsimCDFS contains a special module that allows you to play audio Cds (digital audio disks) from your CD-ROM device hooked to the computer. To hear the music, you will need to plug earphones into the CD- ROM reader or have if hooked up to speakers.
When activated, either from a Cli argument or a configured macro-key AsimCDFS allows you to run CDTV and CD-32 titles on your Amiga, but the configuration of your system must match that of the emulated system as closely as possible for many of the titles to run.
(POPKEY), you are greeted with a special AsimTunes interface module that looks like a standard audio CD controller. It has a digital time display window, and buttons that control track searches and playback. You can set up a playback script that plays anything on the audio CD in any order you desire.
The editing of names and tunes is also possible, though obviously you can't write to the CD, but instead store the info on the computer. As an added feature, you can also set up a library of all of the audio Cds in your collection, listing any or all of the tunes contained therein.
A smaller yet full-featured AsimTunes interface may be set up on your WorkBench screen, allowing you to swing and sway while you're entering that vital spreadsheet data.
AsimCDFS is fully Arexx compatible, and a full listing of Arexx scripting commands is included in the manual.
And what about your own music, those special sound samples that you need to plug into that Deluxe Music composition? CDFS supports the CDDA (CD Digital Audio) technology for transferring 16 bit sound data over the SCSI and IDE bus. As with the other AsimCDFS modules, a host of options for transferring CDDA data to vour computer are supported.
AsimCDFS includes a special audio streaming mode of operation that allows it to access audio disks so that unwanted pops or clicks don't result from the way the audio disk sectors are formatted. In addition to being able to access an entire CDDA audio track, AsimCDFS allows you to access only a selected part of it, just the thing for utilizing selected samples.
CDTV and CD-32 Emulation on your Amiga AsimCDFS allows you to run CDTV and CD-32 titles on your Amiga, but the configuration of your system must match that of the emulated system as closely as possible for many of the titles to run.
CDTV, for instance, requires WorkBench 1.3 and a single speed CD-ROM drive, as compared to CD- 32's expectation that you have a WorkBench 3.1 ACA system.
The AsimCDFS interface has its own Preferences screen, giving you complete control of search engines and other important CD-ROM parameters.
AsimCDFS tries to generate some work-arounds for these requirements, and includes a listing of the most accessible titles you can try. The CDTV and CD-32 keypads have Amiga keyboard equivalents outlined in the manual.
The manual also lists conceivable conflicts that you might experience with certain controller cards and CD-ROM drives, as well as other problem tracking hints. As I said previously, if you possess some hardware you are not sure AsimCDFS will work with, give AsimWare a call first before purchasing an}' software. They exhibit excellent skills when it comes to service with a smile. As for me, I can hear my Amigas singing in the dark when I'm in another room pretending not to listen. I can't quite make out the words, but it sounds like a CD anthem.

The Ultimate in Computer Art?
The yearly Bit Movie Festival contest in computer art has become one of the largest competitions of its type. Contestants from all around the world submit examples of their best work. This year the contest attracted 783 works from 333 authors.
Tlte entries in each category were 23M for 2D Image, 345 for 3D Image, 20 for 2D Real Time Animation, 46 for 3D Real Time Animation, 50 for Video Personal Computer, and 56 for Video Graphic Workstation.
The true international spirit of the contest is shown in the artists who submitted their work. Italians number 208 with the USA following with 52 authors. France artists numbered 24 while additional submissions were received by artists from Austria, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Greece, Holland, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and Japan.
Bit Movie is outstanding not only for its international focus, but also for its wide range of entries and its unique voting structure. Not only are the pieces judged bv a collection of professionals, but the artwork is also seen and judged by a public vote.
Amazing has sponsored this work bv providing examples of the winners in past issues. In the past, the computer platform used in the creation of the work was clearly mentioned by the contest. Unfortunately, this year, we can only be certain of Marc Hoffman's entry (above) as an example of Amiga work. We have included the additional pieces to challenge the Amiga community to continue to submit to this fine contest and to inspire Amiga artists with the work of others.
Carlo Mainardi, Chairman of the Bit.Movie program, stated, "For the last years BIT MOVIH's task has been that of giving animators and designers the opportunity to confront the creative tendencies, the ideas, the innovating techniques, the new narrative forms born out of those digital images created thanks to personal computers.” Special Contest Each year the Bit Movie committee hold a contest early to pick an outstanding example of art to be used bv the contest in posters and other artwork to promote the event. All artists are invited to submit one image which, if it is selected, will be the
poster image of BIT MOVIE '96. The deadline is November 15, 1995 and the image must be in electronic format. You can send it on diskettes (as a backup of hard disk), on a Syquest cartridge in either 44Mb or 88Mb format, on magneto optical diskat 230Mb, or on CD ROM optical disk. The image should be in either TGA, TIFF, or IFF format in a minimal resolution of 1240 x 1771 pixels, 24-bit. The final image will be developed in 2480 x 3543 pixel format. Your submission must be in its final version and it must not have any inscriptions (such as the title of the festival) nor the author's signature,
because these will be added later.
Only one will be chosen, which, "will have to be of particular beauty and impressiveness, and will have to give the idea of what BIT MOVIE represents or be about the themes of the Festival." If your image is chosen , you will receive a prize of Lire 1.000.000, and your name will be on all the reviews using your image. If your image is not chosen, it can participate in Bit Movie '96 Still Image Section competition. In that case vou will only need to send a completed entry form.
Foreign artists should plan their submission carefully to ensure that it will arrive on time. Customs delays of two weeks can occur. When time is short, consider using a private courier. Customs labels should bear the words: "Educational material with no commercial value." Bit.Movie 96 will not pay any customs fees, duties, or tariffs incurred by your submission.
To submit your work for the main contest, alt work should be delivered no later than January 15,1996. For submissions or additional information you can contact the contest by mail at Bit.Movie ’96, Via Bergamo, 2,47036 Riccione (ITALY), Phone Fax +39-541-643016 or email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Y Aladdin 4D: Tutorial 15 Eden City: The First Block Eden City: Different camera views of the basic structures in the Eden City rendering. It is the author's intention to add enhanced features in following tutorials. Texture maps, roadways and bridges, animated vehicles, optional backgrounds, and more will be added to bring this 3D to life.
Create a 3D cityscape with Aladdin 4D by starting with a simple cube.
Bij R. Shamms Mortier The Eden Cube I thought it might be an interesting idea this time around to experiment with a simple form, a cube, and see how many variations wc can derive from it in Aladdin 4D. Then to take all of the variations to build a 3D cityscape. 1 don't think I can really exhaust all of the possibilities, but I'll bet that as we go along you will he pleasantly surprised by how much we can do by accessing various A4D tools.
If you have been following these tutorials in the past two years of Amazing Computing, you should find this article an enjoyable addition.
Obviously, you need ADSPEC Programming's Aladdin 4D (4.0) as a component in this exploratory process.
If you're an Amiga obsessive and you don't own Aladdin 4D yet, I might strongly suggest that you get a copy of your very own. You'll he thankful you did.
How to begin First things first. We will start with a cube, one that has its faces segmented into triangulated polygons so that their "normals” (reference data lines that can't be seen and rise perpendicular to the plane of the polygon) remain intact.
°i TL 108 XJ ffH & A , I 7?r1 -r A ¦¦ I V Go to the Aladdin Tools menu and access "Make a Rectangle". A requester will pop up in which there are several input fields. Make length of X, Y, and Z equal to 10,000 units, Centers equal to zero (the default), and with "Grid” toggled to "On" set each of the X, Y, and Z segments to 8. Select Accept, This will give us a cube with 64 rectangular polys per face.

These barrel-like shapes were created by accessing the Radial operation ON in the Scale settings requester.
Figure 4. The Wirebend Tool is awesome when it comes to bending large or smaller shapes as easily as you can bend soft metal.
Now select the entire cube object and group all of its faces, and go to the Tools menu again and select "Triangles". Now you should see all of the rectangular poly separated into two triangular polys each. I would suggest that after making this cube, you save it as "MyCube.4D" so that you can always go back to manipulate another shape without having to generate the cube all over again. Now we have our basic shape, so let the manipulation begin!
Our first simple experiment will consist of cloning this shape a number of times and resizing the results. You can experiment with different sizes here, perhaps resizing the cubes in just one directional axis.
Look in the A4D manual for the right tools to accomplish these tasks. 1 would suggest winding up with at least ten cubic sizes as a result, though your RAM memory will let you know if you have exceeded the limit for objects, lust as a reminder, the "Cloning" tool is listed in the External Tools requester as is the resizing tool (called "Scale").
Hold down the ALT key to move objects that have been cloned. When stacking the blocks, it's best to work in Isometric mode in order to see what you are doing. After stacking the cubes to your liking, group each of the buildings you have created as one unit. Realize that if you create only one such structure, it can be cloned, resized and manipulated as a whole, giving you infinite possibilities. Save this creation as a separate A4I) drawing. Do as many as you like, saving each one (we’ll deal with textures later).
Start with your original Eden Cube again on a new drawing, This time we will experiment with one of the settings in the Scale Tool that creates interesting variations. Access the settings with your right mouse button. Turn "Radial" on, and set the Radial Dpcnt to 3.0 for a start (explore different numeric settings after you get the hang of it). Make sure Scale Deforms is ON, and Accept the settings.
Select your Eden Cube and set it spinning on the Z axis by "1" key on Figure 6 (middle). The Slant Tool does much more than you would expect from such an innocent name.
Figure 7 (bottom). Yes, ladies and gents, we started off with a cube, and using the Twist Tool, achieved this result.

The numeric keypad. While it's spinning go to the External Tools menu and click on "Scale". Move the mouse while holding down the left button, moving closer to and farther from the spinning cube to see the results. When you get something you like, stop the spinning ("2" key on the keypad) and save the shape.
Our third building primitive (a "primitive" in computer graphics jargon is anything that is expected to act as the basis for more manipulation after it is imported) will access yet another A4DTool. Import your Eden Cube again into a new drawing. We are going to use one of the newest A4D Tools that came with the A4D Newsletter (if you're not getting the newsletter and you have A4D, you're losing out big time). This tool is called "Wirebend", and it's absolutely great for bending objects. It can be used as an animation too! To make appendages (arms, legs, and stuff) bend in the most organic
We are going to experiment with it as a sculpting tool for our cubic Eden City, however.
When you right-click on the Wirebend Tool, you get its settings requester. I would suggest that you experiment thoroughly with the settings as opposed to taking the logical approach. Read the manual after you have played around a bit.

Your cube and "Perform" the operations while inside the requester. Note the results. When you achieve a shape that you like, save out the drawing as another primitive. If you want to risk this tool's parameters even more, bend a shape in another group of settings a second or more times.
The "Taper" tool is our next target. Import your Eden Cube, and bring up the taper settings. Experiment with different numbers in the XYZ Scale settings. Notice that when Radial is toggled ON, the overall results will be curve enhanced. With Radial OFF, you get more squarish constructs. As usual, save the results as a separate drawing.
Next we will use the Slant Tool in the External Tools. Notice that with Slant, you can set to either "Mirror" or "Linear". Mirror operates by accentuating symmetry, while linear gives you more rhomboid structures. These controls are interactive and notoperated from within tire requester, so you have to close the requester and select the object before manipulating the extent of the deformations with the mouse's left button down. For more bizarre structures, try operating this tool in Linear mode with the object set in rotation on its Z axis (or any axis for that matter). As always, save out
your finished creations.
The Twist Tool is our next stop. Be careful with this one, because it's powerful enough to bend your poly's normals way out of whack. Best to move slowly in your experiments here, noting the results with each move and setting. This tool is really super when it comes to animation deforms in A4D, and using it to sculpt objects is not normally done. But hey!,., we live by risk,., right? Save the results if you dare.
If you have a problem having enough memory in your system to handle the examples in this article, just create your structures with less polygons. They will behave a little differently when you address them with the tools, but you will still learn the processes.
In a future tutorial, we will look at A4D's astounding texture capabilities in detail. For the moment, however, use either solid colors or perhaps a procedural texture or two when you lay out your Eden City groundplan.
You can even map a procedural texture on the ground (Z Projection).
See my graphics as an example of this.
The next tutorial ( 16) will add moving vehicles in an animation of Eden City. If you desire an animation experience, set your own paths through your city and fly to your heart's content. Until next time, Enjoy!!! And I'll no doubt see you in ROMulan space.

(216) 223-2255 *AC 1 have a collection of dozens of tapes and a
few books on the subject of learning to use LightWave. Some
of the videos are produced with a higher quality than
others, and some of the books are produced with more
clarity than the others, but neither the videos that 1 have
nor the books are adequate for learning what is needed in
Some of this teaching media is more complete than the rest. In the case of teaching by video, I find tapes useful as an addendum to printed documentation, but not a substitute.
Perhaps it's my old world education, but I still find the written word in tangible book style format to be a better teaching learning device than either video or interactive CD-ROMs, and see this alternative media as a support mechanism in the learning process rather than a replacement for books or manuals. Because of all of this, I was anticipating getting my hands on the new book "Exploring LightWave 3D 4.0" by Todd Payne and distributed by New Era Press.
Explaining LightWave 3D 4.0 comes with a disk full of the LightWave Scenes, Objects, and Surfaces that the book's tutorials walk you through as essential learning components. Most of you realize, at least those of you in the Amiga LightWave community, that LightWave has been ported to the PC, and most of you are no doubt also aware that many Amiga LightWave users are using alternative rendering platforms, like the DEC Alpha, for rendering speed.
This is important in terms of the book, because all of these alternative platforms or bridges to other platforms is targeted for learning.
The neat thing about the port from the Amiga to the PC is that it was handled so seamlessly as to make the 4.0 software look virtually the same on both systems, at least in terms of moving around the interfaces of both LightWave and the LightWave Modeler screens. The book is therefore useful as a learning device to individuals in both platform camps.
I also found that 3.x owners users of LightWave can also receive an upgraded education from Explaining LightWave 3D 4.0. There are some different tools in 4.0 as compared to
3. x, but the overall operation and theory is the same. I
installed the disks contents, for instance, on both the PC
version of LightWave 4.0 as well as on the Amiga Version of
3.5. The only difference was that in the Surfaces drawer, the
images were in Targa format, so I used Nova Design's ImageFX
to translate them to 24-bit IFF's after I installed them on
the Amiga version. The LightWave object format and Scene files
are proprietary to NewTek, and as such, work the same on any
platform LightWave works on.
The Book is a Must And Explaining LightWave 3D
4. 0's part in all of this? It's an absolute must for anyone who
has not already mastered the LightWave and LightWave modeling
process, which probably references the bulk of users.
This is most especially true for 4.0 users, whether on the Amiga or PC side Alpha of things or both.
Explaining LightWave begins by guiding you through the steps of the LightWave installation process on various platforms, and ends with a discussion and examples of post- production concerns rotoscoping, keying, actors, and more). In between are tutorials that demonstrate one or more LightWave capabilities, like modeling organic forms, positioning lights, morphing and deforming objects, using displacement maps, creating and altering procedural surfaces, planning and creating animations, and rendering.
Exploring Lightwave 3D 4,0: The Book by R. Shamms Mortier The tutorials are separated into beginning and advanced topics, and there are more than a handful of LightWave users, who consider themselves as experienced, that can learn a thing or two from the advanced section. Added appendices take you through the LightWave and Modeler configuration files and import export issues among other concerns. The last section is a complete index of everything in the book.
It should also be noted that Explaining LightWave 3D 4.0 has been produced with an extra heavy cover stock and a reinforced binding, both added so that it can be laid open on a flat surface like the study manual that it is. The included graphics are sharp and well placed, and an added eight page color section in the middle references the tutorials in a very attractive way. All around, this book- disk combination is a first class production that should allow new and semi-experienced LightWave users to smooth out the LightWave and LightWave Modeler learning curve.

CQNSU IRON Hop 'n Bop A comparative review of several Amiga and CD32 games in the Hop 'n Bop platformer style.
Bif Jason D'Aprils The CD-32 has a way of keeping older genres alive and well with some great old style shooters (like Soper Stardust, Banshee, Alien Breed Tower Assault and The Chaos Engine) and with platformers as well. Hop 'n Bop style platformers are an nrtform of their own. To ease some of the confusion, I have provided comparative reviews for twelve different titles available for both the CD-32 and the Amiga.
First up are Zool and Zool 2 (PAL and NTSC, though the NTSC versions may no longer be available). Zool was one of the best selling Amiga games ever a fact that leaves many American gamers scratching their heads, wondering why. With their too bizarre backgrounds, too cutesy characters, propensity for enemies which keep coming back, and the absolute lack of a save feature (and these are long games, made longer on CD by extra levels), the Zool games just don't have enough to hold a gamer's attention for long. Control is decent and the games are fairly fast (Zool was supposed to compete with
Sonic, but doesn't come close). There is some slowdown and flickering, especially in the first Zool. Zool is mildly entertaining, with the sequel only marginally improved, but very average stuff overall.
Note that for space considerations and simplicity, I have listed the screen mode after the title (either PAL or NTSC) and also, where applicable, I have listed whether or not a PAL game needs screen adjustment some of the titles are extremely bordered or letterboxed and adjusting the screen makes the game seem too undersized (Core games, in particular suiter from this).
The Best? Is Brian The Lion the best example of a Hop ’n Pop platform game on the Amiga?
Core's Chuck Rock (NTSC) and Chuck 2: Son of Chuck (PAL, no screen adj.) Are much more entertaining. Chuck Rock CD is the same as Virgin's now ancient floppy release and still entertaining with its hilariously bizarre prehistoric world. Chuck 2 has you taking the part of Chuck Jr., a toddler with n VERY big club.
The game uses some very innovative graphic techniques and is quite entertaining, with lots of neat bosses and wacky enemies. Neither game, unfortunately, has a save feature. Both games have good graphics and sound (Chuck 1 still makes you choose between sound and music, however, which is pathetic) and both games have solid playability. Also, both games (Chuck 2 especially) have very good introduction sequences.
Bubba ‘n Stix (PAL, no screen adj.), also by Core, is a winner, pure and simple.
It is a puzzle platformer game that requires you to help a hick from the sticks (Bubba) free himself from a strange alien world with the help of Stix, an intelligent alien twig.
Bubba 'n Stix uses passwords as a save feature. Control is good and the puzzles are quite challenging. Also, the cartoon-like graphics are outstanding and very humorous.
On a similar note is Sleepwalker (NTSC), an old game that came with my CD-32 and drove me to distraction. Sort of a sadistic cross between Sonic and Lemmings, you have to guide a sleeping boy through the city and make him avoid all manner of hazards. Great CD soundtrack, good control, and nice graphics, but still one of the few games that 1 grew to actually despise because of its frustrating nature and propensity' to lock up every time 1 completed a level.
Small note should go to another oldie Oscar (NTSC). Oscar was one of the best looking platformers, but it had a total lack of playability due to the unbelievably incompetent controls as well as no save feature. Monsters continued to reappear at an obnoxious rate in the game, which further drove down the fun factor. It also lacked bosses and any sort of CD enhancement, except extra levels which only made it way too long to finish in one sitting.
James Pond 2 (NTSC) and James Pond 3 (PAL) are quite different in structure from each other. James Pond 2 is a good looking game with decent playability, long game time (again, no save feature) and some innovative features like the stretching robot suit. It also has backgrounds that must have come out of the nursery from hell. While both games are hop 'n bop style games with the same kind of cartoon-like, too cutesy graphics, JP3 is the closest thing on the Amiga to a true Mario-style ptatformer. JP3 has over a hundred levels, good playability and countless secrets to discover. It even saves
to the CD-32's saveRAM. It’s slightly marred bv the rather utilitarian graphics and the repetitive scenery in many of the levels. Still, as James might say, it's quite smashing overall.
Teaml7's Superfrog (PAL) is also a very Mario-ish game, placing you as a prince-turned-frog in search of his kidnapped lady fair. Simplistic gameplay, charming graphics and fun levels highlight the now dated game. The CD version is exactly the same as the floppy version and pressing up on the D pod still, unfortunately, makes Superfrog jump. Ironically, the game does hand out passwords, but you have to win them in the bonus round, which may not happen very often. This is good, classic stuff from one of my favorite companies.
Kid Chaos (PAL autoboots) is an oddly disappointing game. Technically done right, the game has a sterile, uninspired look and feel to it. It is a Sonic clone, but without any of the spunk or originality.
The game casts you as a caveman punker stuck in a huge virtual reality world. If you have played Sonic (or most other platformers) you know what to expect here fast paced action, breakable walls, secret bonuses and pinpoint jumps, but it all feels so overworked and utilitarian here.
Overall, Kid Chaos suffers from too much "Been there, done that," But still, plenty of long and treacherous levels, very challenging and responsive gameplay, and Bitmap Brothers' style look and passwords make the game, to say the least, competent and better then many others. It is just disappointing that there was trot more effort put toward style and panache, if not originality.
SuperFrog (lop) and Zoo! (bottom) offer Amiga gamers a variety of gameplay similar to games on other platforms.
Jillf rn¥MM Saving the very best for last, is Psvgnosis' own blatant attempt at a "console style ptatformer" in the form of Brian the Lion (PAL, no screen adj.). It is easily the best of the bunch and coded by Reflections (of the Beast series fame). It has beautifully drawn world maps, saves to the saveRAM (or passwords on the floppy version), and has graphics so spectacular that the only way the game could look better is if it were 3D rendered like Donkey Kong Country. Brian also has loads of challenging diverse levels, good control and plenty of interesting features. It also has one grave
flaw bonus items disappear and are never replenished once you leave a level, even if you didn't find them. This severely undermines the game's replay value, since finding the bonus treasure is one of the main attractions of a good ptatformer. It is a frustratingly stupid oversight on the part of the designers that prevents the game from reaching as much greatness as it otherwise could have. Still, the beautiful graphics and the game's many other virtues make it one of the best platformers I have seen and give it the ability to compete with the other greats of the genre on other platforms such
as Donkey Kong, Gex, Sonic and Earthworm Jim.

The ABC's of FTP FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and enables you to copy files from far off computer systems to your local Internet provider. From there you use a standard tile transfer method, such as Zmodem, to download the files to your home computer.
There are even ways to skip this last step, and FTP the files directly to your Amiga from that far off system, which we will be discussing at a later time.
Like many Unix command structures, the commands used during a FTP session will be familiar to users of the AmigaDos Shell. To change directories use the cd command, and dir works just as you would expect. You can also substitute the Unix command Is to obtain a directory listing.
Unlike AmigaDos, you can move up one level in the directory structure with the command cdup.
Ordinarily, you would expect to be refused access to computer systems that you do not own or belong to. Thankfully, many systems on the Internet allow what is knov Ti as anonymous FrP. This means that anyone that can connect to the system is allowed to download or upload files. When prompted for a username, just enter anonymous, and when asked for a password, enter your actual e-mail address for the system you are FTP'ing from.
The FTP process is fairly straightforward, but does contain a few pitfalls for the unwary. The best way to illustrate this is through an actual FTP session. For a first taste, probably the best thing to get is found at a site called ftp.eff.org, and here is some of what you will see as the process unfolds.
To get started, you will need to go to the area of your Internet provider that allows access to the FTP, and open a connection to the site.
Ftp open ftp.eff.org Connected to ftp.eff.org. 220 ftp.eff.org FTP server (Version wu-2.4(16) Name (ftp.eff.org:rhayB): anonymous Password (ftp.eff.org:anonymous): rhays(?ansel. Intersource. Com 331 Guest logLn ok, send your complete e-mail addreBS as password.

Looks pretty imposing doesn't it? Each line is a directory or a file, with the group of letters on the left indicating who is allowed various privileges. The number to the left of the date is file size in bytes, with the file name on the far right. The fourth line down indicates a short-cut route to the subdirectory pub EFF is available by typing cd EFF. Because Unix commands are for the most part case sensitive, the sysop of this system has kindly duplicated this short-cut in the ninth entry for anyone who types cd eff.
When working your way through a FTP site looking for interesting files, one of the first places to examine is the pub directory. So, we will type cd pub, then either Is or dir for a directory listing.
Among the files and subdirectories listed is: drvxrwxr-x 10 brown doc 1024 Aug 11 14:09 Net_info Change directories again to this one, get another listing, and you will find: drwxrwxr-x 6 brown doc 512 Aug 17 00:40 eff Net Guide Go into this directory, and you will find: drwxrwxr-x B brown doc 1024 Aug 17 00:40 0rher_versions Inside this final directory (and you thought your directory structure was convoluted!) You find this unassuming- looking prize:
- rw-rw-r- 1 brown doc 312813 Feb 17 00:28 eegtti-2.3.amiga.lha
Now comes one of those pitfalls. Up to this point, we have been
dealing with ASCII text. In order to actually transfer this
file, we have to tell the FTP system to switch to binary mode,
like so: ftp bin 200 Type set to I. To initiate the actual
transfer, type get, followed by the file none exactly as it
appears in the directory listing. You will get a message like
this: £tp get eegtti-2,3.amiga.lha 200 PORT command
150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for eegtti-2.3.aaiga,lha 312813 bytes).
226 Transfer complete.
312813 bytes received in 10.5 sees 29 Kbytes sec) The file we wanted is now in your home directory on your Internet provider, and we can leave here. Type: ftp bye 221 Goodbye.
You should now be back to your provider with everything looking like it did before you opened the FTP connection.
After downloading the file to your Amiga, and unarchiving it with Lha, what you have is the AmigaGuide version of EPF's (Extended) Guide to the Internet. This is the electronic version of what used to he known as The Big Dummy's Guide to the Internet.
Assuming you have AmigaGuide, or Multiview, you are now armed with a document touching on everything from the history of the Internet, to a Smiley dictionary. Studying this document will give you an excellent basic understanding of the community of users that calls the Internet home.
If you want the ASCII text version instead of the AmigaGuide version, once you are logged onto the FTP site, type: cd pub Net„lnfo EFF Net_Guide Make sure the system is in ASCII mode by typing: ascii Then grab the ASCII version: get netguide.eff Which Way to the Aminet?
Aminet is a vast collection of Amiga files of every' conceivable type. Currently it is approaching two gigabytes in size, and like the Internet itself, it is growing larger daily as authors upload new programs, and new versions of old favorites.
The main Aminet site is available as ftp.wustl.edu. Because it is a favorite site of many people, when you log on, you will often see this message: ftp o fcp.wustl.edu Connected to wuarchive.wustl.edu. 220 wuarchive.wustl.edu ftp server Version wu-
Name (ftp.wustl.edu:rhays): anonymous Password (f tp.wustl .edu: anonymous): rhays@ansel. Intersource -can 530-Sorry, there are too many anonymous FTP users using the system at this 530-time. Please try again in a few minutes.
530- 530-There is currently a limit of 300 anonymous Ubers. Yes, there REALLY are 530-that many users on wuarchive - this message is not the result of a bug.
530 User anonymous access denied.
421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection At this point you can either wait and hope for better luck later, or try one of the Aminet mirrors. Mirrors are alternate sites that maintain copies of the Aminet file.
Quite often these sites are less busy than wustl.edu and you can get right in. While most mirror sites will delete older files to make room, there are several that maintain complete copies, updated three times a day.
Some of these are, ftp.netnet.net, ftp.livewire.com.au, ftp.luth.se, ftp.eunet.ch, ketly.uni- opaderborn.de, ftp.uni-paderborn.de, and ftp.doc.iC.ac.uk. qVORF Q Although distance is mostly irrelevent with the Internet, it is best to try the sites closest to you first. You will save a little time, and more importantly, save a distant connection for someone who perhaps needs one.

HARDWARE * ProVector9 3 Face it, with its reputation for
performance and reliability, there never really was any choice,
but ProVector 2 for structured drawing on the Amiga'. Now the
choice is even clearer! ProVector 3 features new object effects
such as blending, warping and perspective; enhanced text
support; LightWave™ support, and an improved interface. It
taxes full advantage of the AGAIU chip set, and OS 2.1 plus.
Together with original features the competition still can't
match such as Multiple Undos, Layers, and Reliability; plus
support products such as PSImport1'1 (for importing and editing
PostScript*) and StylusTracer ! (for auto-tracing), ProVector3
is 'The Illustration Solution."
From design to color separations, I hi* ad was produced entirely with ProVector 3. Copyright © 1995 by Stylus, hie.
