Amiga Is a registered trademark of Commodore-Amiga, Inc.

Not surprisingly, the late-winter event was also the largest DevCon to date. More than 400 industry insiders from the US, Canada, and 11 European countries gathered to attend seminars conducted by Commodore’s Engineering, CATS (Commodore Applications and Technical Support), and Sales divisions. Fueled by the recent release of the AGA-based A4000 and A1200, the mood was optimistic. The first of the 40 sessions outlined Commodore's technical development and marketing philosophies, directions, and strategies. The bulk, however, focused on specific issues “AW Right! ” Said Fred PETERBOROUGH, NH Drivers, divers, doves, and dynamite. These are just some of the subjects depicted in Amigamations the video containing the 20 winningest entries from AmigaWor d's Third Annual Animation Contest. When 17 AmigaWor c and Desktop Video World staffers gathered to judge each of the 20 finalists in four areas (sound, graphics, storyline, and originality), fellow New Hampshirite Mark Thompson handily floated away with first place and a grand prize of over S12.000 in Amiga gear for his 4 1 2-month exercise in subtle 3-D rendering of One Stormy Night With Fred Floaty. Resplendent in his LightWave 2.0-cured polymers, Fred, a cheap inflatable toy, experiences a daydream so exciting it nearly bursts his Latex lining. Noted animator Dr. Eric Fleisher gave Fred tough competition with Commuter Chip, the second-place winner. The good doctor's animation depicts a society in which 3-D computers reign supreme. See such as digital-signal processing, retar- gettable graphics, and, yes, future chip sets. Although attendees are under nondisclosure concerning specifics, we can assure you that Commodore is planning big for the future of Amiga. While the amount of material presented was immense backed by 700 pages and four disks of documentation attendees still found time for socializing and showing off. As always, the computer room was crowded well into the wee hours of the following morning on Developers* Showcase evening. The annual “I'll show you mine if you show me yours” session 4 4 J was further enlivened by a number of interesting European products, from graphics boards to shareware.

Educating Amiga Artists HOW 1)0 YOU become a successful computer graphics artist? It’s a question on the minds of many Amiga World readers considering an education and career in computer art and animation. More than a few interested readers have asked me which courses of study and which
• schools are best, what careers are available, and how to go about securing a position in the computer an field. Lacking answers, I turned to the experts successful professionals who use the Amiga who provided useful insights and valuable advice. Recommended Study Many schools offer a variety of high- quality computer programs, as well as degrees in computer visual arts, for aspiring computer artists. It wasn't always the case. Bruce Elliott, art dept, head at Germantown Academy (Eon Washington, PA), notes that when lie started using his Amiga six years ago "it was impossible to find college programs that offered a sound foundation of courses for the computer artist or art teacher. All I could do at that time was teach myself.. Many college programs now exist that teach basic drawing, painting and design. As well as computing applications, computer graphics and animation, and video TV production. This is due, in part, to an increased realization of the computer’s role as a critical tool for image creation and manipulation. The experts I contacted unanimously recommended that college students become well-grounded in traditional art skills and design basics, as well as general computer ability. “Get a solid foundation in traditional art skills while you pursue computers as a medium,” suggests Joel Hagen, A H A long-standing graphics columnist and college arts and animation instructor in California. But also, it is important to develop other skills from basic math and science to creative writing to drafting- that could be applied to your career. An interdisciplinary approach, allowing you to combine your study of computer graphics with other courses, is best. Phil Fitzpatrick, associate professor of art at Lamar University (Beaumont, IX), advises, “Take a broaci base of subjects; [don’t] focus entirely on computers or computer graphics. ” He recommends complementing your study of computer art with “courses that teach thinking, creativity, and communications, which are fundamental to any type of visual imaging or communications.” In the world of computer art, it’s best to maintain an open and creative mind and he prepared for anything, warns Fitzpatrick. “People will ask you to do the strangest sorts of things and assume that vou know how!" Rick Manasa, who serves as an Amiga consultant in audio-video and educational applications in Michigan, proposes that artists also develop some business, accounting, and communication skills. “All people in graphics and animation need good communication skills to he able to translate producer and client desires into reality.” j Which System to Buy? It should come as no surprise that the folks I queried overwhelmingly cited the Amiga as the most affordable, and easiest computer to use for animation and desktop video. In addition, however, students should become familiar with other platforms (e.g., Pcs, Macs, and Silicon Graphics workstations). Each platform has its merits. Jeff James, a student at Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO), urges: “It never pays to criticize someone for his or her choice of computing machinery'. Starting an argument with a potential employer over which computer is better is a sure way to be taken out of consideration for the job." In the pursuit of a computer art degree, your focus should be on art, not computer, according to Michael Han- ish, an instructor for the Arts Institute of Vermont. “The hard part.. .will be in figuring out what to do rather than how to do it. I strongly feel that form and technique must be a servant to content. Computers are tools with a purpose whether it he aesthetic, educational, or practical.” Jobs If you have the education and or the experience, how will you parlay your skills into a job? There’s no easy answer, hut the experts agree that talented artists are in high demand in the traditional fields of film, advertising, publishing, and television, and these opportunities will continue to expand. Designers are well-suited for CAD applications in drafting, architecture, industrial design, mechanical engineering, and textile design. Multimedia production for training, education, and business is also a growing field, “Today, the opportunities are almost endless... from designing artwork for computer games to rendering special effects for sci-fi films. Many of the nation's largest traditional animation houses such as Disney, whose latest film. Aladdin, features computer-generated imagery- are using increased amounts of computer animation in their productions,” states Jeff James. Ingenuity, timing and perseverance are key. Computer artists are needed in manj- fields, including advertising, communications, and education, hut ultimately, as the computer animation market evolves, you could find yourself creating and defining your own position. “There are new opportunities in areas that have only recently developed an acute awareness of the computer as an image-making device (e.g., law, medicine, education and industrial training services),” adds Fitzpatrick.

Not surprisingly, the late-winter event was also the largest DevCon to date. More than 400 industry insiders from the US, Canada, and 11 European countries gathered to attend seminars conducted by Commodore’s Engineering, CATS (Commodore Applications and Technical Support), and Sales divisions. Fueled by the recent release of the AGA-based A4000 and A1200, the mood was optimistic. The first of the 40 sessions outlined Commodore's technical development and marketing philosophies, directions, and strategies. The bulk, however, focused on specific issues “AW Right! ” Said Fred PETERBOROUGH, NH Drivers, divers, doves, and dynamite. These are just some of the subjects depicted in Amigamations the video containing the 20 winningest entries from AmigaWor d's Third Annual Animation Contest. When 17 AmigaWor c and Desktop Video World staffers gathered to judge each of the 20 finalists in four areas (sound, graphics, storyline, and originality), fellow New Hampshirite Mark Thompson handily floated away with first place and a grand prize of over S12.000 in Amiga gear for his 4 1 2-month exercise in subtle 3-D rendering of One Stormy Night With Fred Floaty. Resplendent in his LightWave 2.0-cured polymers, Fred, a cheap inflatable toy, experiences a daydream so exciting it nearly bursts his Latex lining. Noted animator Dr. Eric Fleisher gave Fred tough competition with Commuter Chip, the second-place winner. The good doctor's animation depicts a society in which 3-D computers reign supreme. See such as digital-signal processing, retar- gettable graphics, and, yes, future chip sets. Although attendees are under nondisclosure concerning specifics, we can assure you that Commodore is planning big for the future of Amiga. While the amount of material presented was immense backed by 700 pages and four disks of documentation attendees still found time for socializing and showing off. As always, the computer room was crowded well into the wee hours of the following morning on Developers* Showcase evening. The annual “I'll show you mine if you show me yours” session 4 4 J was further enlivened by a number of interesting European products, from graphics boards to shareware. The five-day program was capped off by the 1992 Developers’ Choice Awards computer chips commute to work. See them master manufacturing processes. Will their efficiency improve their quality of life? Who cares? After all, they're just computer, er, commuter chips. Bob Eaton captured third place honors with The Sculptor, in which a strange 3-D creature begins sculpting with traditional manual tools but soon switches to high explosives. When the dust settles, a resulting Luncheon. Enthusiasm for the A4000 was clear here, as the machine itself picked up the Best Hardware award, and its AmigaDOS Release 3 operating system received Best User Interface honors. Other winners included SAS Institute’s SAS C6.0 (Best Professional Productivity Software), Electronic Arts’ DeluxePaint IV (Best Consumer Productivity Software), Software T oolworks’ Miracle Piano Teaching System (Best Education Software), and 21st Century Entertainment's Pinball Fantasies (Best Entertainment Software).

Amiga artists have always made an impressive showing in the Italian Bit Movie computer graphics and animation com- AtHonio De (.nrenzo Antonio De Lorenzo’s 3*D work won the hearts of BitMovie ’92 judges. A1200 or Bust Where's an Amiga 1200 owner to go for machine-specific information and products? Right here! GVP's new A1230 Turbo is a 40 Mhz 68030 accelerator that fits inside the expansion bay on the bottom of the computer. Two SIMM sockets allow you to add RAM to suit your needs: Use 4MB SIMMs for up to SMB of 32-bit wide 60ns DRAM, or use 16MB chips for up to 32MB. A Floating Point Unit (FPU) socket lets you add a coprocessor to speed math-intensive operations. Populated with 1MB RAM, the board sells for S499. (RS 132.) MicroBotics offers some of the same op- petitions. The latest was no exception. While Italian-language fluency is required to discern the finer points of the new brochure announcing BitMovie ’92 winners, no special skills are needed to see that 17 of the 18 top 2-D animations and 21 of the top 25 3-D animations are Amiga generated. The still-image category winners list spans several pages, but just one of those listed on the first two pages is a Mac creation; the other nine are Amiga works. Among the LIS Amiga artists on the winners roster are Mary Mcjohnson, Eric Schwartz, and Bill Graham. BitMovie ’93 will take place April 8-12 in Riccione, Italy.

The board provides an FPU and a real-time clock calendar, and accepts one 32-bit SIMM chip of one, two, four, or eight megabytes of RAM. The board comes with diagnostic software and costs S189 without memory. (RS 133.) Beginners might benefit from the A1200 Insider Guide, which goes for £14.95 from British publisher Bruce Smith Books (ISBN 1-873308*15-9). In 24 chapters, the book touches on Workbench 3.0, utilities, Preferences, and AmigaDOS via tutorials. (RS 134.) Improving Toaster Character "Your Toaster will never be the same!" Says fnnovision Technology. The firm's new Montage ($ 499.95) promises professional- quality text display, DVE transition sequencing, and 16-million color graphics output plus the ability to integrate smoothly into the Toaster environment. Innovative character-generation is at the heart of Montage. The program's typefaces offer real-time click-and-drag font scaling, and high-level antialiasing for an effective one-nanosecond resolution. Montage's eight master character sets include symbols and international characters, and for increased flexibility, the program loads Toaster, Chroma, and Amiga font formats. Montage also imports and exports image files in IFF and framestore formats, and its ability to display 24-bit graphics on the Toaster's framebuffers allows for such applications as compositing multiple images with variable translucency blending. The program can generate full-color gradient spreads, instant beveled boxes, and embossed wallpaper patterns. Its sequencing capabilities let you automate Toaster Switcher functions for multiple event playback, and you can apply any Toaster DVE to Montage titles, framestores, or video sources. Montage can calculate directly in D2 framestore format for improved signal quality and display speed. What's more, its drivers can improve the quality of the Toaster encoder's video output, and an optional NTSC can reduce dot crawl and ringing artifacts. (RS 128.)

AmigaVision Professional Commodore Business Machines, S399 (S99 upgrade for AmigaVision owners). Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected (freely- distributable player included).
2. 0 3.0 compatible. Accelerator compatible. Minimum system: 2MB of RAM. Recommended system: 4MB of RAM and hard drive. I’ve used AmigaVision for many projects, and while it has its limitations, it is still a powerful tool for creating interact ive multimedia. For professional-level development, where you need sophisticated capabilities such as a wide variety of math functions, database capability, and free-form buttons, “AV” is by far the easiest program for creating presentations. It is simply one of the most powerful multimedia development systems available anywhere. Now, Commodore has done one better: AmigaVision Professional solves most of the original version's shortcomings. New and Improved One of AV's biggest problems has been its lack of a distributable player, li has also needed an easy way to launch an AY script upon bootup essential in kiosk applications. To launch a script, you’ve bad to double-click on its icon. AV Pro solves these problems by including a distributable player that you can use to launch a script from a startup sequence or
CLI. You also can launch the editor so that it comes up with a playing script. Display capabilities have been greatly improved. Support for AGA graphics (A1200 and A4000 display modes of 256 colors and 256,000 color HAM mode) has been added, with some current limitations: You can’t color-cycle or modify AGA images from within AmigaVision (such as changing the palette); and when using the Object Editor to create an object to place on an AGA picture, you can use only the first 32 colors in its palette. You can, however, place full-color brushes on them. More picture transitions are now available 34 in all. The requester separates them into two groups: Half of them work with transitions between pictures To locate the vendors of the products reviewed, see the "Manufacturers' Distributors’ Addresses" list on p. 92. With differing palettes and resolutions; the other half are lor pictures that have identical palettes and resolutions. Not all transitions work well with AGA graphics, but plenty are available. The ability to call a random transition, which formerly required extra programming, is another welcome addition. In interactive presentations, flexibility in the creation of buttons is very important. Even powerful programs such as Scala Multimedia 200 have limited button capability, and you are restricted to creating only rectangular buttons. In AV Pro, even an an- imbrush can be a button. And you can import a brush for this purpose, or use the improved drawing tools in the object editor to create one. Flying Objects With the new path creator, you can create and edit paths for buttons and objects to follow, with control over speed and movement along the path. For example, an interactive button could take the form of a bird flapping its wings and flying back and forth across the screen. You also now have control of object depth, so vour bird could fly behind one button or object and in front of another. As a simple test, I created three AnimFonts (animated brushes of letters) moving around the screen, on circular paths. Each was a separate button. T he arrangement worked perfectly, and was impressive. Often, large animations can take a few seconds to load. To speed things up, ANIM streaming which plays the ANIM as it is loaded, saving both memory and time has been added. You can set the size of the buffer for streaming ANIMs. Besides the standard Amiga graphics, AV Pro now supports the CDXL animation format for CDTV. You can even play a CDXL file within a window moving along a path. In fact, AY Pro is a powerful CDTV development system, with full support of CmY functions such as automatic highlighting and support for the B button on the con- AnigaVision Professional fluthori n mac on Icon Nane P>ay walk anm heno nan walks to counter Filenane AmigaVision Pro’s main screen gives you access to many new features. Troller as a “back” button. You can even play tracks from audio Cds and audio sections from a CD-ROM. Audio has been significantly improved: MIDI, which was limited to four channels'in the original, now supports up to 20 channels; sound now supports Editor has been spruced up too, with a new paint-program-style menu bar, rather than a pull-down type. It is easier to use, and includes a button for dropping the menu out of the way to reveal more of die screen. One of AV Pro’s big changes is in object handling. Objects (anything you create in the Object Editor, or load in) can be named, are addressable by name, and can be manipulated from anywhere within the script, can be addressed through the Expression , and functions can be used to determine when an object moves it) a specific position. You can add, load, clone, or delete objects, and their attributes can be directly manipulated with variables for sophisticated interactive applications. Referencing requesters, which let you refer to another icon elsewhere in the script, have been changed. You can now reference an icon directly, or use a computed reference based on an expression. Developers creating presentations for distribution or kiosks now have the option of limiting an application’s memory use. If the kiosk system has 5MB but you have 12MB on your development machine, you can limit the system to 5MB (or any preset amount), or default to CDTV memory limits. Other additions include conditional interrupts, variable-defmition checking, external port communications without using Arexx, available memory checking, a customizable pointer, and manual location of animations, screens, and brushes. My Wish List I’d like to see a few more things: Arexx control over objects and attributes would be useful; the Animation requester should include the option of playing an ANIM and holding the last frame; complete support of AG A all resolutions; better support of new synthesized-speech capabilities. Overall, though. 1 am impressed with the new features. While a number of other interactive-development tools are available (and I have them all), Amiga Vision Professional will he my primary tool. Besides being very powerful, it is also very easy to use and has the best interface of any available multimedia package. If interactive multimedia is an area of interest to you, you can’t afford to be without AV Pro. Geoffrey Williams One-Stop Music Shop Blue Ribbon Soundworks, $ 649. A2000, A3000, A4000.

2. 0 (and up) compatible. Accelerator compatible. Minimum system: 1MB of RAM Recommended system: 1+MB of RAM. Hard drive. Sample player and MIDI interface for multimedia producers and composers. Electronic musicians will note well the introduction. A few years back, of the easy-to-use Proteus, a single-rack space MIDI sound module featuring 32-note polyphony and great ROM sounds. Now, with Blue Ribbon SoundWorks' One-Stop Music Shop, Amiga owners can have a Proteus built in to their computer. At its heart is the actual sound engine from the Proteus, piggybacked onto an expansion card usable in an A2000, 3000, or 4000 card slot. Also onboard is a MIDI interface with MIDI in and out ports separate from the serial port. Other Features Software includes a full-blown editor for the sound engine, an Arexx-controllable MIDI (ilc player with several demo MIDI files, tools that allow One-Stop ? To be used with Bars and Pipes Pro and as a stand-alone source, a PatchMeister driver, and a demo of Super Jam 1.1. The sound engine is essentially a ROM- based sample player with 213 sampled waveforms, which are used as sound sources and manipulated in a basic synthesizer-like architecture. The resulting sound is defined as a preset, which can be saved to disk. Output is via a pair of RCA jacks on the back panel of the card. A preset is made up of two waveforms the “primary” and “secondary” instruments, which can be modulated separately by two low-frequency oscillators (LFOs) and an envelope generator. Each instrument can then be shaped bv its own dedicated envelope generator. The sound engine packs some unusual features: Crossfade, rather than playing primary and secondary instruments simultaneously, gradually fades from one to the other; Sound Start lets you start a sound from any point in the sample; Reverse plays the sample backwards. The sound engine’s architecture be- comes clear once you begin working with the editor. The signal path is displayed in the main window with buttons representing modules with editable parameters. Fhe three basic modulation sources (LFOs 1&2, and the auxiliary Envelope Generator) are at the left of this screen. Each Ll () offers five waveshapes (sine, sawtooth, triangle, square, and random), with the typical amount, rate, and delay controls not so typical is a variation control. I hree buttons (Kev Velocitv Control, Realtime Control, and Miscellaneous) let you define modulation sources and destinations. Click either the primary or secondary instrument buttons and a window containing these parameters appears. Click Intfi«9i lev »ott

Below are sliders to set instrument range along with volume, panning, tuning, start point, and delay (up to 13 seconds). At right is a graphic envelope to set the instrument’s dynamic shape. A “(’.horns” button uses MIDI doubling to double the number of voices for a chorus effect. The Link button lets you combine up to four presets in either layers or zones across the keyboard range. A small keyboard representation lets you audition the sound. Making Music: One very attractive feature is the fine integration with other Blue Ribbon products. Aside from the stand-alone One- Slop editor, there is an accessory version for Bars and Pipes Pro that, once loaded, runs from inside the program. Sound engine in and out tools are placed in the pipeline to access the sound engine sounds, and a separate set of MIDI in and out tools is used to address the MIDI interface resident on the One-Stop card. A General MIDI tool can also be placed in die pipeline to send program changes to the sound engine. This tool sends patch numbers 0-127 while displaying a corresponding General MIDI Standard patch name. The stock sounds in the sound engine also conform to the GM spec. The sound engine is also supported by Blue Ribbon’s universal patch librarian, the PatchMeister, which lets you organize and manipulate sound engine patch banks, and can also be run as an accessory in Bars and Pipes Pro. Using the Loop Back tool, the sound engine can also be used with other sequencers or as a stand-alone sound source. This entails routing the MIDI out from the Amiga MIDI interface or from your master controller to the MIDI in on the One-Stop interface. Super Jam (version 1.1 and higher) works very nicely with One-Stop. When SupeiJam senses One-Stop, it automatically replaces the turbo sound option with the sound engine and redirects MIDI communication through the One- Stop interface, freeing the serial port. Conclusion I have only one small complaint: You can't disable an incoming MIDI channel; every channel is assigned a sound. Though this should be a problem only for non-Bars and Pipes users with multifile sound sources and controllers I could suggest a work-around such as ere-
o o ating a “zero” patch a channel-specific data filter would he a helpful addition. Nevertheless, this is an excellent product. It’s especially useful for multimedia applications, but anyone making music with an Amiga could make good use of One-Stop. This is definitely one of the best Amiga music products that I have seen so Far. Steve Qtiinzi ImageFX Great Valley Products, S399. Hard-drive installable. Not copy protected.

T he alpha channel is a 256-shade grayscale image you can use to control effects on the 24-bit image, without necessarily altering color values of the image. Areas that are closer to white in the alpha channel have a greater effect than those that are closer to black. While this may sound confusing, the Cl1 quality of the effects can be remarkable. I he water-drop effect in the accompanying photo, created with an lmageFX special effect, was accomplished using the alpha channel to generate the alteration. Other tools provide control over the image, as well, including color balancing, contrast, antialiasing, color limits, scaling, sharpening, and edge detection. There are also special elfects for distortion (based on the alpha-channel image), waves, oil transfer, and others. ImagcFX fully supports Arexx and has adcl-on modules called Hook programs, which you can use in conjunction with image processing to add even more special effects, such as Black Hole, Spiral, and Explode. The Hook approach lets you add new modules without upgrading to a completely new program. Morph Magic One of ImageFX’s Hook programs is CineMorph. Briefly, morphing is the ability to create transitional frames by controlling the movement of specific points of the start image to match those of the end image. The beginning and ending could be the same image, two different images, or a series of images as required for a full-motion morph. The single-image morph is easiest to explain: Think of a picture on a sheet of thin rubber. When you poke your finger at the back side of the rubber, the picture stretches and distorts. You can create this same effect by moving the end points of the morphed image outward in a circular pattern that is about the si .e of your finger. This example can be much more detailed and can be utilized over a series of images. LmageFX uses a grid pattern of points to control the begin and end points of your images.

Point movement can be linear or by spline curve, and you can control point-movemenl acceleration and dissolve speeds both globally or on a local point-grouping basis. Perhaps the best feature is that the morphing calculations are quite quick, 1 In! 1 I L..... rt-- although speed is, of course, dependent on your system, the image complexity, and the number of control points. In addition, this version of CineMorph lets you call another processing function and save the results in any of the supported file formats. Another major feature in ImageFX is the use of virtual memory. If you don't have enough RAM to handle the processing for a large image, ImageFX uses your hard disk as virtual RAM. While this is slower, you can still complete your project. 2 MB Chip RAM Expansion I manipulated an 8MB image on my 9MB machine with only a small difference in processing time from smaller images. Pros and Cons I was quite impressed with ImageFX; it has a better user interface, wider file support, and more features than its competition. The documentation, while well written and well indexed, is unfortunately incomplete. It does not explain many of the parameters used for special effects, and the tutorials refer to pictures and projects not included on the disks. If you are looking for flexible image- processing and morphing capabilities, von will want to consider adding this one to your disk of tools.

Old- timers shunned point and click; novices couldn’t get past the word syntax. So, both camps stubbornly clung to their favorite interface. Fortunately, a few advanced thinkers envisioned a marriage of the two interfaces that promised to provide both Workbench friendliness and CLI power. Thus the directory utility was born. What began as a simple matrix of buttons and one single window, today has evolved into a dynamic and versatile interface in its own right.

Circle 16 on Reader Service card MVH-J MVP > From j).22 sion 4.0 is an arm long, but here are the hot ones: unlimited user-configurable buttons, user-definable menus, and device buttons; graphic support for all A( iA chip-set capabilities; display of all ILBM formats; and playback of ANIMS and animbrushes. Audio playback now supports more sound module programs. 4 he internal Diskcopy, Format, and Print functions are now stand-alone modules like the Configuration program and offer a plethora of options and functions. All DirectoryOpus menus, requesters, and configuration edit screens greatly benefit from an AmigaDOS 2.0-style facelift. However, INOVAtronics has added JMJi _ I_L_J_I w SI i i I 1 DirectoryOpus 4.0’s flexibility and AGA support make ft a powerful utility. One special icon of its own design that puts the icing on the cake. Whenever a field has a list of commands, options, or liles to select, a small magnifying-glass icon appears next to the field’s status line. Clicking i be icon calls up a new requester that lets you select the desired item. Upon opening the package, you'll notice that the manual has grown right along with the program. Its 272 pages are logically organized, and all major sections are now numbered, allowing easier reference. The first 174 pages are devoted to a detailed explanation of DirectoryOpus operation and capabilities, including an improved, expanded look at even- command and function. The combination of new requester interface and better manual guarantees you’ll get more out of this version of DirectoryOpus, While the program can he run from disk, it is designed to he integrated into c* o your hoot configuration. Commodore’s standard installation utility is used to in- J stall the program and its files, so first- time users, as well as current DirectoryOpus owners, should find the process simple and straightforward. If you convert from a version later than 3.22, all modifications and customizing yon may have incorporated into DirectoryOpus will he retained. When 4.0 is started it will look and act just like your previous version. (Please note: If you are using DirectoryOpus Version 3.22, you must delete the DirectoryOpus.CFG file normally found in the S directory before installing version 4.0.) Working with Opus Examining the Project menu reveals the first new option Button Iconify, which will transform your DirectoryOpus screen into a hank of buttons. The number of bank-rows displayed is selectable from within the configuration program. Now you can access DirectoryOpus’s action buttons directly from the Workbench screen, A quick look around the DirectoryOpus window reveals the same friendly layout as in previous versions. Upon closer examination, you'll discover that some buttons have dog-eared folds, indicating dual-action buttons. This seemingly small change greatly improves program use. Many similar little tweaks in the program set DirectoryOpus above other directory utilities and make it a real powerhouse. To accommodate the increased number of drive and control buttons, sliders appear alongside each group of buttons, providing a quick way to page through them. You can now resize the source and destination windows horizontally within the confines of the DirectoryOpus window. The directory-tree function has been graphically enhanced, making it much easier to read. A Show of Strength The real power of version 4.0 lies in the new edit windows and the greatly improved user manual. Together they make it so much easier to modify Direc- lory Opus and capitalize on its built-in strengths. I normally configure the Show func- tion to display an image for just one second. But there are times I’d like to study an image. In the past I’d either modify the command via the Configure program or start a different viewer. The following modification illustrates how easy it is to create a dual-action button and reprogram the existing Show command for my needs. From the Button Edit Screen in the Configure program make these changes. First select the Show button and add the following new entries: Command Modify ShowDelay 1 Command Show Now from the other bank select the button that corresponds to Show and name this button View. From the Button Edit Screen add these new entries: Command Modify ShowDelay 0 Command Show Now left-clicking the Show button displays images in one-second intervals as before. But right-clicking Show activates View, which displays and holds the image on screen as long as you like. This simple example demonstrates the power and flexibility of even- DirectoryOpus command and DirectoryOpus itself. From its outset, Workbench should have had the form, function, and power offered by this new version of DirectoryOpus. At least we can have it today. -Joe DiCara Address-It!

Both derive from the photo (lower left). At top, ADPro's Line Art effect brings out subtle outlines; at right, the program's Swirl function puts a whole new spin on things. Manipulators BY DEREK GRIME Amiga image-processing software is continually evolving, allowing you to alter more images more skillfully. ODAY’S COMPUTER ARTIST has a freedom the tra- ditional artist cannot even imagine. Traditional media are permanent, but computer pictures can be mixed, blurred, sharpened, converted, and enhanced. Furthermore, computer artists need not start from scratch with each work. With image-processing software, you can instantly apply effects to any images, including digitized photos. Lately, much has happened in the realm of Amiga image processing. Before you put cursor to screen image, you should know how the available tools stack up. What are the programs’ strengths and weaknesses? Which package gives the best dollar value? Which offers the most features? And most importantly, what is the right choice for you? In seeking the answers to those questions, I reviewed what were, at press time, the latest releases of the Amiga’s three main image-processing programs: Art Department Professional 2.2 ($ 299, ASDG), (Imagemaster 9.23 ($ 199.95, Black Belt Systems), and ImageFX 1.03 (S249.95, GVP). [To locale the vendors of products mentioned in this article, see the Manufacturers' Distributors’ list on p. 92.) AS DCFs The Art Department followed the Amiga’s first wave of image processors PIXmate (now out of' production) and Butcher (now part of Eagle Tree Software’s authoring program Helm). Since upgraded to Art Department Professional, AD Pro introduced the new wave of image processing. It has earned its good reputation, and ASDG continues to improve it; version
2. 3 may be out by the time you read this. AD Pro’s first challenger was Imagemaster. The program has an incredible range of features, and Black Belt constantly releases upgrades. In fact, Black Belt ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH BY ANN DILLON AmigaWorld 31 was promising imminent release of Imagemaster 9.24 as we went to press. The new kid on the block, GVP’s ImageFX, was released in late ‘92. ImageFX is far more than just a picture manipulator. GYP has packed in so much value that ImageFX must be considered by any serious user. Let's start our exploration of the programs' differences by comparing their file-format Finesse. Graphics In, Graphics Out Before processing an image, you must load it into your software. W hile Amiga users are lucky to have just one major file format with IFF, the rest of the world is dogged by a maze of differing formats. On a DOS machine you may run into TIFF, GIF, Targa, and BMP, to name just a few. To make matters worse, formats often come in different versions. A TIFF file saved from a paint program may not load into a desktop-publishing program, and vice versa. Why does this matter to Amiga users? Because you want to be able to draw from as many sources as possible. We’ve included a matrix (see the sidebar “Reading, Writing, and... ”) which shows how the trio fares in terms of loading and saving various picture Files. Keep in mind that support for dozens of formats looks impressive on paper but unless the software supports all the format’s variations, results can he disappointing. For these tests. I used two different programs on an SGI workstation to generate 24-bit files in four formats each: Targa, GIF, TIFF, and Alias. I then attempted to load the eight files into each of the three Amiga programs. I used the auto-load features of both ADPro and ImageFX, which automatically try to decipher the format of the file; Imagemaster has no such feature and requires you to specify the file format before loading. ADPro performed like a pro; while it does not support Alias, its universal-loacl feature recognized each of the three other formats automatically. ImageFX supports all four of these formats but could read only the GIF and TIFF files automatically. It recognized and loaded the other pictures only after I specified their formats. Of the four formats I tested, Imagemaster supports only Targa. It could not, however, read any of the test Targa files correctly. While it did attempt to load the files, the results were nothing like the originals. All three of the programs performed well when writing files. The workstation software could read all the pictures the Amiga programs generated, although Imagemaster’s Targa output was marred by vertical lines. ASDG claims that ADPro is “image processing’s common ground.” It certainly comes close. Not only does ADPro support more image formats than its two competitors, but t he program makes an effort to support all the formats’ many permutations. ASDG should be applauded for a job well done. There is a cost for such flexibility, however. Support for Targa, TIFF. Sun Raster, and other higher-end formats is not standard, but requires the purchase of ASDG’s Professional Conversion Pack ($ 90). The Learning Curve If you’re the type of person who hates to read manuals, then either ADPro or ImageFX is your best choice. While ImageFX employs simple icons for many of its functions and ADPro goes for a push-button approach, both programs provide easy-to-use, intuitive interfaces. Imagemaster is not so straightforward. It requires you to dig for the functions you want to use. For example, to solarize a picture you must go from the main panel to the process panel and then to the spec- ial-effects panel where you click on the solarize option and then flip back to another panel to define the area to be processed. The program gives you access to lots of power, but makes wielding it trickier than it has to. Manuals are important and ASDG has provided the best of the group. At more than 300 illustrated pages, it is well written and comprehensive. ImageFX comes close with more than 200 pages, including an immense Arexx reference section. Imagemaster’s manual is adequate, though it does not explain every aspect of the program. A ReadMe tile on the program disk contains more than 250K ol information. That’s 1 10 pages! You are supposed to print this monster and add it to the manual. (Apparently, a lot has changed since the initial release.) Black Belt knows this is a problem and is working on a new manual, but it’s colcl comfort to a new user faced with hours of printing. Despite this weakness, Imagemaster’s is the only manual that includes examples of processed pictures so you know what your results should look like. Convolutions and Transformations Once a picture is loaded, all three programs can work miracles, yet each approaches the same process with a different attitude. AD Pro offers a full-screen control panel and does ail its magic out of sight on a background screen. ImageFX and Imagemaster provide half-screen panels that allow you to see the processing as it happens. There is much overlap in functionality among the three. One program may refer to a feature by the name “collapse” while another calls a similar feature “the black hole.” ADPro has a large range of tools and lets you choose IMAGE FORMATS?

These panels allow for precise adjustments and make ADPro a natural when doing fine-tuning for print or video. Operators include blur, collapse, line art, tile, and twirl. ASDC’s MorphPlus ($ 295) works with ADPro to give you several additional operators. Incidentally, MorphPlus is ADPro’s ticket to full-mo- tion morphing, which is standard with Imagemaster and ImageFX. ADPro is fast, often much quicker than its competition. ImageFX has many similar operators and makes them somewhat less involved by giving you limited control over each operation. If you don’t want to operate on the whole picture, ImageFX makes it easy to choose a portion of the picture to work on. GYP also adds some standard paint tools (such as magnify) and sports an undo button. In addition to providing such basic operators as blur and sharpen, ImageFX offers extra features via the Hook tool. Through “hooks” you can measure pixels and produce histograms, counting the red, green, and blue content of the image. Imagemaster ups the ante considerably by adding more functions and filters than the other two combined. This is Imagemaster’s true strength: dazzling effects that the competition hasn’t even dreamed of. No where else can you find droop, contour, caricature, thicken, zig-zag, shine, blueprint, melt, and dome options. And there are many, many more. You can even add fake geographic elevations to an image or use a picture to create a real elevation map that can be loaded into VistaPro (Virtual Reality Labs) and rendered as a landscape. Everything you can do with AD- Pro and ImageFX you can presumably do with Imagemaster by combining its numerous special effects. Keep in mind that some of these nifty tools take a long time to process the picture. All in all, though, Image- master has the best bag of tricks. A nice touch is each program’s provision of batch processors that let you alter entire groups of images any way you wish. J J If You Act Now. .. There is more to this group than just image processing. For instance, all three programs include full Arexx ports that allow you to create new functions and modify existing ones. The troika works with the entire range of Amiga displays. Oddball formats like SHAM (high-res HAM) are here, as well as the new AGA and HAMS modes offered by the A1200 and A4000. T here is good support for third-party display cards such as Impulse’s Firecracker 24, GVP’s IV24, and Digital Micronics’ Resolver, and all work with DCTV (Digital Creations) ancl HAM-E (Black Belt) as well. The three programs let you print directly; ImageFX and ADPro can even save in PostScript and En- capsulated PostScript formats. Furthermore, each one creates text slides that you can save as IFF files. If you need to create images from scratch or just do touch-ups, Imagemaster and ImageFX include full paint programs that are well integrated with the rest of the functions. Imagemaster s paint module has the most features, but the ImageFX offering most resembles a standard Amiga paint program and is simpler to use. Of the program versions I reviewed, only ImageFX had built-in drivers lor scanners. (Imagemasier’s upgrade, which is due out by the time you read this, promises support for Epson’s ES300, 600. And 800 units.) ImageFX’s Sharp JX 100 and Epson ES300C support is a generous bonus; in my tests the JX100 driver performed flawlessly. ASDG offers support for a much wider range of scanners, but at a higher cost. An ADPro driver module for Epson scanners is $ 200, and one for HP’s ScanJet lie is in the works. ASDG’s Professional Scan Lab II, which drives Sharp units, is S499. Only ASDG offers separate products that support professional film recorders like Polaroid’s CI-5000 and Lasergraphics* LFR. ASDG even sells ADPro modules that drive dye-sublimation printers and control Abekas digital-videotape recorders directly from the Amiga. Support for the Abekas is sure to be a crucial element in getting the Amiga into even more high-profile video post-production houses. Standard equipment on ADPro are the programs Splitz and Joinz. If an image is too big to fit on a disk, you can use Splitz to break it into disk-size parts and Joinz to reassemble them. ADPro also includes IBM (DOS and Windows) and Mac versions of these two utilities so you can swap images with your friends on other platforms. Finally, all three companies offer on-line technical support (via modem) to registered users. What’s Right? There are good raisons d'etre for all three programs. Each is stronger in some way than its competitors, and each suits a different type of user. For the experimenter, the avant-garde artist who craves wilder and stranger special effects, I recommend Imagemaster. If you run a video boutique or post house you must buy this program. It excels when creating outrageous images, the type you see in music videos. Imagemaster does demand more from its users, but if you persevere it can outperform anything else. The exterior is an ugly duckling but the soul is solid gold. II you run a small studio and want an all-in-one solution with good value, then purchase ImageFX. I feel the program’s Cinemorph module represents the most elegant morph solution of the three, and it’s included here for free. Plus, you get a powerful 24-bit paint program, lots of effects, and built-in scanner support. It's easy to use and you can be up and running in minutes. It also offers the most natural interface. When I use ImageFX, I feel as though I am transforming the image, not just sitting back and letting the software do all the work. If a quick solution is what you need, you can’t go wrong with ImageFX. Despite the strengths of the other two programs, Art Department Professional is the strongest of the three. It gets the nod because it does what it claims to do. To its credit, ASDG has done the job right, supporting formats correctly and adhering to standards the others have only touched on. If you ever transfer files back and forth to other systems, you must have ADPro or risk ending up with egg on your face. ADPro is much more expensive when you factor in Morph Plus and the Professional Conversion Pack, but you do get what you pay for. It’s a solid value, despite its premium price. You will find uses for all three programs, but ADPro is the one you will turn to in a pinch. And hey, if vour bank account can take the strain, I 7 i get all three. Imagemaster has the flash, ImageFX has the range, and ADPro has the precision. As a trio they cover all the bases and then some. ¦ Derek Grime is president oj Beyond Graphics, a Toronto- based animation studio that recently finished work for Fox, Frooi Loops, 7UF, and Commodore.

* m * If you’re looking for some slick, snappy-looking tricks to liven up plain-vanilla graphics, check out these image-processing techniques for creating outlined posterized graphics. By Fred Hurteau LIKE EVERY MAGICIAN, a computer artist needs a few tricks up his sleeve. Image processing offers some excellent opportunities for conjuring up such magic. The techniques presented in this article will show you how to perform some digital prestidigitation on an ordinary grabbed or digitized image and transform it into an outlined posterized graphic with artistic flair. You’ve got a wide array of choices when it comes to finding the necessary tools to perform your magic. Any one of the following seven popular graphics and image-processing programs will do the trick: PIXmate (Progressive Peripherals), DeluxePaint (Electronic Arts), NewTek’s Digi-View or Transfer 24 (provided with Digt-Paint 3), Art Department Professional (ASI)G), ImageFX (GVP), and Imagemaster (Black Belt). Our tutorial will take you through all seven programs, step by step, to demonstrate how each one produces its effects in different ways. So, no matter which one you choose to use, you’ll know the trick to making it perform your bidding. Before we begin, though, keep this in mind: Selecting a suitable subject for your magic is extremely important. Outline posterization works best on an image with large elements. Too many small details will confuse the issue. A close-up of one or two I lowers works far better than a picture of the whole flower garden. Image sources might include a digitized photo or slide, a grabbed frame of videotape, or an image from a graphicsdibrary disk. The technique wor ks with images in any format from 16-color to 24-hit so the only limiting factor is whether your software is capable of ? Handling that particular format. (The chart in “The Great Manipulators” on p. 33 in this issue, lists all compatible image formats for ADPro, Imagemaster, and ImageFX.) Ojfei'izlncj Po I HE MRS 1 S I EP is posterizing the image into fewer colors, introducing flat color areas with no dithering. HAM or 24-bit images should first be converted to Hi colors. Your completed image can later be used in a 24-bit program and still retain the posterized look. AD Pro, ImageFX, Imagemaster, DeluxePaint IV AGA, and Digi-View 4.0 will load and convert 24-bit or HAM images, while DeluxePaint IV, PIXmate, Transfer 24, and earlier versions of Digi-View will convert HAM images only. Digi-View or Transfer 24 users should open the program in the screen size of the finished graphic. In the Control requester select the 16-color button and set Dithering to Off to enhance the posterizing effect of reducing colors. (The technique of not using dithering is one we will employ with all programs covered in this article see Figure 1 for more details.) Load your 24- bit, HAM, 16- or 32-color image. For 24-bit images, start with contrast and brightness sliders set about -20. Click Display to see the effect. Adjust brightness and contrast as necessary for a good image. You can further reduce colors by using the slider in the Palette requester and then clicking Display. Save your posterized image to disk when done. To use ADPro, load your image and set the Screen Controls buttons to the desired screen resolution and 16 colors. Set Dither to Off and render with the Execute button. Now save the 16-color image to disk. With Imagemaster, this project becomes a mulii- ple-choice test. To scale HAM images up to hi-res, choose Scale To New Size and then make the appropriate selection for hi-res under Set Render Size. (Be sure to select No Dither for Set Dither Type.) To posterize your image, go to the Process Panel, select Special Effects, and then dick Posterize and Entire Image. Set the Poster Levels slider for 16 colors or less and click Done. You can achieve a similar pos- terization using Contour under Filters. Set the Contour Interval slider to about 125-150 and dick Done. To save the image, dick on File I O and then on Render to File. For ImageFX, load your image and resize it if necessary using the Size Scale option, hi the Render menu, set the left Dither Options button to None and the Display Options color button to 16. Render and save the “Rendered Image” to disk. You can further reduce colors by selecting Posterize from the Color menu, setting the slider to less than 16 colors. Render as before, making sure the Dither button is set to None, and save this “Rendered Image.” With PIXmate. Load your HAM image and choose HAM I o 32 from the Color menu. Then select Reformat As [640x400] under the Effects menu to obtain the desired posterized image. You can posterize any image using Less Colors in the Color menu. Be sure to save your image. If you use DeluxePaint, open the program in the screen format of your image. Then load your image and select Screen Format from the Picture menu. Choose Hi-Res and 16 colors and click Okay. When the requester asks if you want the image stretched or shrunk to fit the page, select Yes. Now save this converted image. Out fin ina AFTER POSTERIZATION, YOU need to make an outline version of the image, which may require gray- scaling first. Except for PIXmate and DeluxePaint, using the same program for gray-scaling and outlining after posterization requires saving and reloading the posterized image before continuing. If you don't, your program will use the original data still in memory, and you will lose your posterization effect. Because outlining in DeluxePaint is not automated, we’ll cover that program last. With the exception of Imagemaster’s "Edge Line" option (which requires no compositing), after you create your outline version you must combine the posterized image and the outline image into the finished graphic. Some programs ImageFX, ADPro, and the “Line Art” function in Imagemaster provide for such compositing within the program, so we will examine their compositing methods as we discuss the outlining procedures for each of those programs. For the other programs (or if you decide you do not want to use the more complex compositing functions in ImageFX and ADPro), you will need to use the compositing procedure that is described in the section on DeluxePaint. Before we move on to the specific procedures for outlining with each program, however, be aware that each one handles outlining in its own unique way and therefore each is capable of producing veiy different kinds of outline effects. Figure 2, a composite of three different outline images of the same original, provides a graphic representation of this point. PIXmate: Edge Detection Load your posteri .ed image and convert it to grayscale using Color Bias in the Color menu. Bull the S slider (saturation) all the way down and click Use. Then adjust the C (contrast) and I (intensity or brightness) sliders for a good image. Click Use after each adjustment. Don’t over-adjust because you may lose the very' parts of the picture you want outlined. Save this grayscale image to disk in case you mess up in the next step. Do not overwrite the original posterized color image. Next convert this gray scale to line art by selecting Image Process under Effects. Practically every button here will alter the edging process, allowing for an infinite variety of looks. For this project, set the Threshold slider to 0, the Limit slider to 16, and the Hits slider to 100%. The NOP (No Operation) box should be highlighted in the Logic section. Under the word "KERNAL” there are seven characters, ranging from an asterisk to a slash mark. All of these effect edging, but use -f (plus sign) as a starting point. Click the EDG box (edge detection) and PIXmate goes to work. When the light show is over von will have a black image with white outlines. For black outlines and white background select Compliment in the Color menu for a negative image. (Note: All the programs covered here provide in one fashion or another for a choice of outline color black on white or vice versa- see Figure 3 for an example of both.) The Color Bias adjustments will increase contrast and darken grayed lines to black if desired before you save the outline image to disk. It's okay to leave some grays in the image; you can adjust them later with DeluxePaint when you assemble the posterized and outline images into a finished graphic. ImageFX: Edge Detection Load your posterized image* In the Toolbox menu click Color and select Color To Gray, choosing the weighting you desire. Then click Okay. Once ihe image has been processed, render it with dithering set to None as before, and save the “Rendered Image." Now select Convolve and click Edge Detect. Try a setting of 30 on the Threshold slider and click Okay. If you don’t like the results, the Undo button will restore your image. The Balance button allows adjustment of contrast (the Co slider) and brightness (the V slider). Using these and various Threshold settings will provide full control. You can try adjusting contrast and brightness after the edge detection is done to thicken faint gray lines into good black outlines. If you want white outlines, selecting Color and then Negative will reverse colors. Render and save the “Rendered Image.” Compositing this image with ImageFX can be a complex process, and less experienced users may wish to defer to DeluxePaint. If you do want to proceed, follow these steps: With the outline image still visible, go to Palette, click on Pick, and then click on the white background in the image. If the RGB sliders show R=255, G=255, and B=255, you’re okay. If not, reprocess the image with more contrast until the background is pure white. When this is accomplished, click Color and then Cray To Color. If you don’t do this, the compositing will not work properly. Now copy the image to the swap buffer and load the color posterized image. Selecting Swap Buffers will allow you to view the outlined image again. Now go to Palette, click on the whitest white in the palette, select Pick, and click on the image’s white background. The RGB sliders for this color should read R=255, G=255. And B=255. Click the ranges or the All button until it reads Rl. Make this white color in the palette a one-color range for Rl. If this is done ? Properly, the white palette color will have a dash across it. If you have white outlines, substitute the black background color for the above operations and adjust values accordingly (R=0, G=0, 11=0). C»o back to the Toolbox, click Composite, and select Matte. Using the Transparency controls, set the Include button for Rl, the Exclude button for None, the Closeness slider for about 200 to 230, and then click Merge. Set the Merge Percentage slider for 100% and click Okay. W hen the merge is done, render the image in 16 colors with dithering set to None. Save the “Rendered Image" and you’re done. O j Imagemaster: Line-Art Conversion Imagemaster again offers multiple choices, providing both a Line Art function that does gray scale and line art at the same time, and an Edge Line function that avoids gray scale and compositing. Figure 4 shows an example of the results of each of these two methods. Following the first approach, load the posterized image, go to the Process Panel and click Special Effects, and then select Line Art and Entire Image. Set the Threshold slider to about 50 and click the B&W button. For a black outline click the Black Line button; for a white outline leave this button off. Now click Done to commence rendering. Before saving (Render To File) the image, choose Set Render Palette, select Generate New Palette, and then set the Number Of Registers slider to 2 for a two-color black-and-white file. Edge Line, also found under Special Effects, will perform an outline directly on the color image. With the posterized image loaded and Edge Line selected, click B&W and try slider settings of Edge Line at 75% and threshold at 20. The Black Line button functions the same as above. Click Done to render and save your image. That’s all: No further compositing is required. If you used the Line Art function above, Imagemaster can composite the images. Load the posterized im- age first, and then load the outline image selecting New As Secondary when the requester pops up. In the Compose Panel, choose Color Keyed Compositions and then Keyed Sec Max Rub Thru. Set the Red, Green, and Blue sliders all at 255 for a white background (black outlines), or all at 0 for a black background (white outlines). Set the Var slider at 20. Click Done and Entire Image. Be sure to choose Generate New Palette under Set Rentier Palette before rendering to disk (saving) the composited image. ADPro: Line-Art Operations Load your posterized image and set the Dither button to Off. Execute the CoIor_To_Gray operator for grayscale conversion. Set the Screen Controls to the screen format of your finished picture, and the Color button to 16. Click on Execute to render the image to screen. 11 you need contrast or brightness adjustments, use the Balancing controls. Don’t forget to use the Apply Map operator afterwards to make the new settings take effect. Render and save the color image (not the 24- bit image) to disk, and then reload it. This forces ADPro to work from the processed image, not the original image data. Now select the Line Art operator and Execute Op. Render the outline image to screen. Again, you may want to adjust contrast or brightness to eliminate gray lines or make them darker. An optional way to eliminate grays is to set the Screen Controls Color box for two colors and rerender as a two-color image. Save your color image to disk for compositing next. Be aware that ADPro’s Line Art operator makes the image two pixels smaller vertically and horizontally, so care must be taken to properly align the images in the combining step. As with ImageFX, less experienced users will find that this type of compositing is simpler with DeluxePaint. For ADPro to properly composite this project at all, you must load and resave the outline image through DeluxePaint. While in DeluxePaint, check the palette and set the background to pure white (all RGB sliders at 15) and the outline to pure black (RGB = 0), or vice versa. Now save this image over the original outline file. Return to ADPro and load the color posterized image first. Then click the Replc (replace) button, changing it to Comp (compositing), and load the outline image. 1 he Composition Control requester will appear. You must adjust the Offset X and Offset Y boxes to properly align the images. The amount of adjustment can vary depending on original image size and the available sizes within DeluxePaint. Usually an offset of 2 for both X and Y is correct. Set the Mix box to 100. At this point, the R, G, and B boxes will probably r ead
- I. Delete these and type 255 in all three boxes, making the pure white background transparent during compositing. If you are using white outlines and black background, set the R, G. and B boxes to 0 and click on OK. L he outline image will be loaded and composited with the color image. Render this composited image to screen. If the outline and color areas are noi properly aligned, recomposite the two images with the Offset X and Offset Y adjusted to compensate for the shift von now see. When done, save the color image.

Experienced DeluxePaint users can find two or three wavs to J accomplish every step in this assembly process. Because some users may not have a one-meg Agnus chip, we'll use the most memory-efficient method. Open DeluxePaint in the screen format of your color image. Load the black-and-white outline image first. If the message “Do you want to change format to that of filer" appears, click No. If the image contains grays, go to the the Stencil requester, click on the darker gray shades you wish to keep, and click Make Stencil. Select the brightest white (R= 15, G= 15, B= 15) in the palette below your Tools menu as the current background color by clicking on it with the right mouse button. Now dear the screen. The light grays will be cleared to white, but the dark grays and black locked with the Stencil remain. If too many lines disappear, select Undo, lock some additional lighter grays in the Stencil requester, and try it again. When the desired light shades have all been changed to white, go to the Stencil requester, click Invert, and then dick Make Stencil. This will lock the light shades. Select pure black (R=0, G=(), B = 0) as the current background color and dear the screen again. You now have a ptire black-and-white outline image. Be sure to turn off Stencil when done. To combine the images, go to the spare screen and load the color posterized image. Go back to the main screen and check the outline image. If the outline color has changed, you should apply Stencil to all colors except the outline color. Select black (or white as desired) from the palette and draw a solid rectangle over the entire screen. This will paint the outlines and not affect any other color on the screen. Again, turn off Stencil. If the background has changed to some other color, it's okay. Simply make white, or whatever color it changed to, your current background color by clicking the right mouse button on it as before. While still looking at the outline image screen, go to the Picture menu and select the Spare Merge In Back submenu. The color image on the spare screen will merge in place of the background color, leaving the outlines over the image. Now you have the completed graphic. But Dpaint Does It, Too! .As you can see. Compositing with DeluxePaint is easv. Earlier we converted and posterized the image with DeluxePaint, but that’s not all the program can do. Although we've used several relatively complex image- processing programs to perform edge detection or outlining, DeluxePaint III, IV, or AGAwill give you the same outline effects. Mere's how. Once the image has been posterized with DeluxePaint, carefully choose a few colors in the image that cover areas you want outlined (five to eight colors will do nicely). Now Stencil all colors except one of your chosen colors and pick up the whole screen as a rectangular brush. Turn off’ the Stencil, select black or white as the current brush color, and press the o key twice. This puts a two-pixel-wide outline around the brush image. Now stamp the outlined brush exactly back where it came from. If you do this for each of your chosen colors, you will have a complete posterized, outlined graphic without having to do gray-scaling or compositing. The only drawback to this method is that picking up a whole screen as a brush eats up a lot of chip RAM, One important caveat here for v ideo buffs: Never use this technique for video if you have outlines one- pixel thick. The image will flicker like crazy on a composite monitor and look extremely unprofessional, fake time to thicken the outlines before (or after) merging them with the color image. Using DeluxePaint, either pick up the lines as a brush without background or use Stencil to exclude the other tools. Use the o key or stamp the outlines back down shifted one pixel vertically, horizontally, or both. Following the steps outlined here (no pun intended), you can produce this technique both with a variety of trusty- old standbys or with some less familiar but high-powered new image-processing programs. The only real expertise required lies in selecting a good image to work with. The rest is simply taking advantage of the wonderful graphics software available for the Amiga. And we haven’t used up all the magic by any means. There are many more interesting, striking effects you can try with these programs. It just requires experimentation. 1 hope this article has given you tlie courage to delve deeper into the graphics magic of the Amiga. ¦ Fred Hurteau spent 12 years as a commercial artist prior to opening an Amiga-based video and graphics studio where he produces corporate, educational. And commercial materials, including training-videos for Amiga products and techniques. He teaches Amiga graphics and animation classes at Pembroke State University in North Carolina, Guide PART 1 . WHILE THE AMIGA is recognized as the leading video multimedia platform in the desktop field, its capabilities for producing text and graphics for high-quality printed documents are much less well known. .Although it still does not enjoy the reputation of the Mac and MS-DOS platforms, the Amiga has recently been making significant headway as a serious desktop-publishing (DTP) tool. Some of this new-found publishing strength stems from improved font-handling routines in the new releases (2.0, 2.1, and 3.0) of AmigaDOS, as well as from improvements and new additions to the stable of Amiga DT P software. But a lion’s share of the credit must go the tremendous growth in the number of high-quality fonts now available for use with the Amiga. One of the essential components in a finished document is the quality of the typesetting. Printed text is much less forgiving than video titling, requiring much higher resolution, better quality letterform design, more graceful letter and word spacing, and careful design and placement of the text and graphic elements on the page. In the early days, the Amiga was equipped with only fairly coarse bitmapped fonts, which were not suitable for quality typesetting. Things have changed dramatically, however, and today’s Amiga users enjoy a wide range of options for creating pro- fessional-quality typeset documents. In Part 1 of our buyer’s guide, we will focus on so- called “structured” (or “outline”) fonts, which have been specifically designed to give smooth, j aggie-free output. Bitmapped fonts, so useful for video production, will be covered next month in Part 2. A Word About Standards Someone once said, “The nice thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from!” Whether you’re using an Amiga, a Mac, or an MS-DOS-com- patible computer, one thing that becomes clear very quickly is that there are a lot of nonstandard “standards” among outline fonts. All outline fonts are similar in that they consist of letter shapes made from mathematically defined lines and curves, but different 7 developers have attempted to establish competing, proprietary (and often incompatible) formats. All of these outline fonts, however, are a bit like electronic rubber: The basic letter form can be stretched to a variety of sizes and still print out smoothly, and depending on the program with which it is used, structured text can be rotated, squeezed, twisted, and manipulated in a wide variety of ways. Bsaa m There are two main kinds of outline Touts, originally developed for MS-DOS and Mac systems and now available on the Amiga. T hese are Agfa Compugraphic Intellifonts and Adobe Type 1 PostScript fonts. In addition, three very good and very popular Amiga programs, Final Copy (Softwood), Saxon Publisher (Saxon Industries), and PageStream (Soft-Logik), each offer their own proprietary structured-font formats. There are a number of other structured font formats
* r.:i.' BY JEFF EVANS wm wm . Amiga World A3 A Vi I G A 1) T P r 0 T S available on other computer platforms (including Type 3 PostScript, Bitstream, and True’Type). While some of these can be converted into an Amiga-usable form (see “The ABCs of Amiga Fonts,” p. 51, in last month’s issue), they are not used all that often on the Amiga, For now, we’ll concentrate on the two major and three minor structured-font formats with which virtually all se- rious Amiga DTP is currently being done. What follows in the remainder of this article is designed to help you in two ways: The rest of the main text will explain the different approaches taken by each of the developers of the various structured-font formats with an eye towards showing you what each has to offer (or not offer) for your type and printing needs. The “Mini-Buyer’s Guide” sidebar will present specific type collections available in these formats plus several fom-conversion utilities you may find useful. Until now, most Amiga DTP fonts have been created on other computer platforms and then converted into an Amiga-usable format. When Gold Dish introduced the Professional Page (current version 4.(1, $ 295) DTP program in 1987, Pro Page used only bitmapped screen fonts and metric tables that it bad licensed from Adobe, the creator of the PostScript page-descriplion language. Without actual .Amiga-formal versions of the fonts, Pro Page users were limited to creating a rough approximation of the text on their Amiga monitor screens, and then getting a printout by sending instructions f rom the Amiga to the output device (a PostScript-compatible laser printer or Linotron typesetting machine). The actual structured Adobe fonts were resident on the printer, not the Amiga. This was okay if you were satisfied with the 35 PostScript fonts that were installed on ROM chips on most Gold Disk’s Pro Page allows users to take dozens of Compugraphic Intellifont faces and convert them to Pro Draw, downloadable PostScript, or Amiga Bitmap formats. PostScript laster printers. Ifyou wanted to use any other fonts, however, you had to buy them in Mac- or MS- DOS-clisk format, download them from a Mac or an MS-DOS computer to the printer’s memory, and then print your Amiga document in effect, requiring you to have a second computer hooked up to the printer. Gold Disk got around this problem in late 1988 by licensing Agfa Coinpugraphic’s “Intellifont” technology, which offered any number of advantages. First, because the fonts were actually converted to Amiga-disk format, they could be loaded onto the Amiga and then downloaded to the printer along with the document. That meant you no longer needed a Mac or an MS- DOS computer (or bridgeboard). Also, rather than using an inaccurate, coarse bitmapped version of the font, Intellitype fonts actually “printed” the letlerform to the Amiga monitor screen, as well as to the printer, giving you a much more accurate WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) display, than the older style Adobe screen fonts. In addition, Gold Disk developed a font-conversion utility that allowed users of Amiga Intellitype fonts to convert the basic typesetting fonts into Professional Draw (current version 3.0, $ 199.95) format (to allow users to do such sophisticated text effects as bending and warping), as well as to convert the structured fonts into Amiga bitmapped format lor use in video or paint programs. Not only (bat, the Intellifont structured fonts could also be output to dot-matrix or inkjet printers to the maximum resolution of those devices. This meant that cheap non-PostScript printers could be used for proofing, or even for final output if quality requirements were modest. One limitation of the original Ciold Disk Intellifont offering was the limited number of fonts in Amiga format. Gold Disk has continued to license additional fonts, so that it now provides a reasonably good basic assortment of more than 180 fonts; the company states that it will add additional typefaces to its library “as demand warrants.” Commodore picked up on the benefits of the Com- pugrapbic Intellifont technolog)' and included it as a part of the Amiga DOS 2.0 operating system. Most 2.0- compatible programs, such as the current version of Electronic Arts’ DeluxePaint, support bitmapped versions of Intellifonts. With 2.O s Fountain program, you can make bitmapped versions of any Gompugraphic font in user-selectable sizes. AmigaDC )S supports PostScript output directly through the PrinterPS program in AmigaDOS 2.1 and above. PrinterPS offers a fairly wide range of output options, although there have been some incompatibility problems, especially with older Amiga programs, as well as bugs with the PrinterPS program itself. (For more on the new font-handling improvements to release 2 of AmigaDOS. See Parts 4 and 5 of the series “Digging in to DOS,” Feb. ’93. P. 55, and Mar. *93, p. 65, respectively.) Soft-Logik: PostScript... and a Whole Lot More Soft-Logik. The publishers of PageStream (current version 2.2, $ 299.95), initially bad some problems with the bugginess of early Amiga versions of its software. This limited PageSiream’s acceptance among professional Amiga desktop publishers for a while, in spite of its extensive list of high-end typesetting features. However, in the course ol making PageStream more robust, Soft- Logik also included even more extensive font options than are to be found in Gold Disk's Professional Page program. Currently, PageStream offers its own proprietary structured-font format, plus compatibility with Adobe Type I and Type 3 PostScript fonts, as well as with Compugraphic fonts. In addition, Soft-Logik provides a vast assortment of PostScript fonts in Amiga-disk formal. In terms of font selection and typographic control options, PageStream is unquestionably the leading Amiga DTP program, and it compares quite favorably with publishing software on other platforms. Recently, Soft-Logik released Art Expression ($ 249), a direct competitor to Gold Disk's Professional Draw smictured-illustration and text-manipulation program. It is compatible with Type 1 PostScript fonts (MS-DOS format only), which means that thousands of fonts arc available for use with it. (For a complete review ol Art Expression, see Apr. ’93, p. 28.) Even more recently, Soft-Logik has done a great favor to the Amiga desktop-publishing community by announcing the imminent release of t he first lull-fea- Soft-Logik’s forthcomimg TypeSmith program allows users to create till ed professional Amiga outlinc-font editor. New outline fonts from scratch or [as pictured above] to modify TypeSmith ($ 199.95) will allow users to create outline existing ones. Mini-Buyer’s Guide to Amiga DTP Fonts and Font Utilities IW HILETHE FOLLOWING is not a complete list of what’s available in the way of structured fonts and font utilities for Amiga DTP, il does include most or the more commonly available commercial products. In addition to the fonts already available in Amiga-disk format, the fom-conversion utilities listed at the end of the guide will enable you to convert many of the more than 27,000 PostScript fonts available on Mac and MS- DOS platforms into Amiga format. FONT COLLECTIONS Gold Disk Type CG Outline Fonts Gold Disk Gold Disk supplies several font libraries in Agfa Compugraphic Imellifont format. As well as the approximately 60 fonts that are available in these sets from your Amiga dealer, Gold Disk sells directly several dozen other typefaces "on request." Using the included CreateFont utility, you can take the basic Intellifont formal and convert it to Professional Draw, downloadable PostScript. And Amiga Bitmap formats. The Agfa fonts install easily and provide for outline louts (effectively, Adobe Type 1 is the closest tiling to a standard there is). There are only a couple of hundred fonts available in Agfa format, and while the offerings are of excellent technical quality and cover the most commonly used typefaces, the selection is not increasing rapidly. ? Very accurate and detailed screen displays, generally good dot-matrix printer output, and excellent high-resolution PostScript output. The Intellifont format is also supported directly by AmigaDOS 2.0 and higher. The only drawback to the Intellifont format is that it isn’t the industry “standard” TYPE: CG Century Schoolbook CG: Futura Bold CG TIMES ROMAN Examples of some standard Agfa Compugraphic Intellifonts from Gold Disk, developer of Pro Page DTP software. Fonts from scratch or modify existing ones. (See the “Mini-Buyer’s Guide” for more on TypeSmith.) Saxon and Softwood: Strong Supporting Roles Saxon Publisher (current version 1.2, $ 299), an unfairly obscure DTP program from Saxon Industries, has its own structured-font format, as well as being compatible with Adobe Type 1 PostScript fonts. In addition, Saxon Industries has recently released a unique program, SaxonScripl Professional, which is a powerful PostScript interpreter that lets you use non- PostScript devices such as dot-matrix printers and non-PostScript laser printers as though they were full- fledged PostScript printers. The company also claims that the program supports a wide range of PostScript fonts, and offers a sizable array of font-convcrsion options. (See the “Mini-Buyer's Guide” for more on Sax- onScript.) SoftWood’s Final Copy II ($ 99.95) word-processing software provides the last and perhaps the most independent-minded of all the font offerings described here. Final Copy II has its own structured-font format, with Softwood including a decent range of Fonts with the program, as well as selling additional packages of fonts on request. One of the principal advantages of Mini-Buyer’s Guide (continued) Psl: Nuevarese Bold Italic PS1: P05TCRYPT 1: PARIS fflETRO “PSl: Sparkle Swash A wide variety of Adobe Type 1 PostScript fonts are now available to Amiga desktop publishers. [From Allied Studios’ Pro Stream Plus collection.] It would have been better for Amiga DTP users if Gold Disk (and Commodore) had settled on Adobe Type 1 fonts as the standard, but for various historical reasons, this opportunity was passed up in 1985, when, unlike Apple, Commodore declined to invest in Adobe technology. One serious weakness of Gold Disk's handling of the whole font issue is that its Font Manager conversion utility (which is provided as part of Professional Page 4.0, Page- Setter 3, and Professional Draw 3.0, and is supposed to be able to convert Adobe Type 1 fonts into formats usable in the various Gold Disk DTP programs) simply doesn’t work very well either simply refusing to work or hanging up and “Zzzz-ing” indefinitely. It failed to convert most Adobe Type I fonts that I tried it with. Gold Disk tech support simply suggested that the fonts I was trying to convert "weren’t standard Type I format." These same fonts, however, all worked fine with PageStreani. Prices for Gold Disk font packages range fi oin $ 36 for a single family, to $ 60 for a set of three decorative display fonts, to $ 199 for a set of the basic 35 fonts commonly found on PostScript laser printers. Newsletter Font Pack Starter Font Pack Classic Font Pack Designer Font Pack Soft-Logik Through an arrangement with Image Club, a major vendor of PostScript fonts, Soft- Logik sells a vast assortment of good quality PostScript fonts (more than 200 currently listed) and structured clip-art in Amiga-disk format. These fonts work very well with the company’s PageStream and Art Expression programs. They can also be imported into Soft-Logik’s new TypeSmith font editing design program for specialized modification. In addition, they can be converted into Pro Page or Pro Draw formats using Minor Image’s MIFont and MlOut- iine utilities, respectively (see “Font Utilities" below). Prices lor the Soft-Logik Library collections are: Starter Fonts and Newsletter Fonts, $ 99.95 each (eight fonts per set); Classic Fonts and Designer Fonts, 5199.95 each (16 fonts per set). ProStream Plus Western Fonts Fancy Fonts Condensed Fonts Allied Studios 1 he ProStream Plus collection of 70 Type 1 PostScript fonts is the class act of third- party DTP font offerings for the Amiga. A labor of love, these fonts show obvious evidence of great care and hard work in every aspect. They were also a breeze to install (ProStream Plus was the only piece of software reviewed for this article that was entirely idiot-proof- an extremely important feature for anv software this reviewer has to J learn) and the fonts worked perfectly. The package includes two separate versions of all fonts: one for Professional Page and one for PageStream. T his overcomes the usual problem of Pro Page’s notorious fmickyness about non-Intellifont typefaces. Numbered among the 70 fonts included are some of the best of the publk-do- main shareware display typefaces available, Final Copy Ifs font system is that it seems very fast, especially on Amigas with slower processors. For a word processor. Final Copy II has very powerful page-layout and graphics-handling features, and fairly comprehensive PostScript output capabilities. For many users whose needs fall short of high-end commercial typesetting requirements, Final Copy II offers all the DT P power you will likely need. (For a complete review of Final Copy II, see Feb. ’93, p.74.) The rapid progress in the development of Amiga fonts has meant that Amiga DTP users now enjoy font options comparable to those available on any other computer platform. Ranging from the sophistication of PageStream and Professional Page (and their associated illustration programs) to the simplicity, speed, and economy of Final Copy II, there is a comprehensive array of fonts and page-makeup tools that can handle the full range of professional typesetting and illustration needs. ¦ Jeff Evans ca-founded Canada's first microcomputer-based typesetting company in 1984, and has used the Amiga for animation and design since 1985. He teaches in Toronto, edits Liquid Image Multimedia magazine, and is a writer for TV Ontario’s Prisoners of Gravity sci-fi series. And publisher Lion Kuntz includes acknowledgements of the creators of each of the faces. Kuntz, one of the pioneer Amiga type designers, did some of the first decent Amiga bitmapped fonts hack around 1985-1987, and he continues to render a great serv ice to Amiga users. While the program’s excellent install routine is installing your fonts for you, you can sit back and peruse the included ReadMe file in which Kuntz makes some very pertinent editorial comments on current issues and problems relating to Amiga font technolog)- and DTP generally. With a retail price of $ 70, ProSlream Plus is a definite bargain. Kuntz also publishes Western Fonts, Fancy Fonts, and Condensed Fonts PostScript packages containing 16, 14, and 19 fonts, respectively. Hie Condensed set was not available for review at the time of this writing, but should be shipping by publication time. Western and Fancy Fonts ($ 30 each) both feature attractive display louts that are fun to use, II’ you need high-quality decorative faces at a low cost, these packages are a good choice. Kuntz will also convert any of the 27,000 available PostScript and TrueType fonts into Amiga format on an “as requested" custom basis, and, if you wish, he will also add custom logos to your fonts for a fee. Fontmania 80 Track Software distributed by In Sync Digital Corp. The largest collection of Amiga Adobe Type I fonts (300 in all), Fontmania is a vast 15- disk set of public-domain offerings. The fonts are not as easy to install on Professional Page as Allied Studios’ ProStream are, but they do install quite nicely on PageStream and Saxon Publisher. At $ 84.95, Fontmania represents an excellent value and should also silence anyone who still claims that “there aren’t any PostScript fonts for the Amiga.” PageStream Fonts Dennis Palumbo Type designer Dennis Palumbo has created an excellent series of high-quality outline fonts compatible with PageStream’s proprietary font format. (Please note that only Disks I and 2 of this five-disk set were evaluated for this article.) They installed easily and worked perfectly. The fonts provided excellent dot-matrix, as well as PostScipt, output. With the release of Disk 5, Palumbo intends to convert all the fonts to Adobe Type 1 formal, which would make them easily convertible via utilities such as MI Font and MIOutline to Pro Page and Pro Draw formats, respectively. Priced at $ 34.95 each, all disks come with three fonts, and there is a discount of 30% if you purchase the complete five-disk set. FONT UTILITIES MIFont MIOutline Mirror Image Productions MIFont and MIOutline comprise a set of excellent utilities for converting PostScript fonts into formats usable with Professional Page and Professional Draw, respectively. Unlike Gold Disk’s Font Manager, which is supposed to do the same thing, these utilities are robust anti reliable. I found the MIOutline program indispensable for adding to my library of available fonts for Pro Draw. Installing and using both programs are easy, and each performed exactly as billed. Prices: MIFont $ 105; MIOutline SI25. Released just recently, this utility should prove very valuable as a handy PostScript interpreter and conversion program (although the early version that I used was somewhat difficult to install). Supporting virtually every imaginable file format and output device, SaxonScript Professional ($ 130) may become an essential tool for the serious Amiga desktop publisher. For instance, Saxon Industries reports that the program supports all PostScript downloadable fonts (outline fonts that you can download from the Amiga into the printer’s RAM) that are compatible with PageStream, Pro Page, or Saxon Publisher. The program also converts outline fonts into Amiga bitmapped, Saxon Publisher, and Adobe Type I PostScript formats, and “prints’’ PostScript files to the Amiga screen for a “soft” preview. TypeSmith Soft-Logik TypeSmith is a full-featured outline-font editing design program the first of its kind on the Amiga. It is intended to let users create new PostScript, Compugraphic, or Soft-Logik outline fonts from scratch, or to edit existing fonts in these formats. Structured objects from Soft-Logik's Art Expression can also be imported to be used as characters. Prior to the release of TypeSmith, an .Amiga designer’s only option was to autotrace a scanned bitmap of a letter or logo, or to use the font editor in Dyna-CADD, a 3-D CAD program from Ditek Int’l with some good text-handling features. If the program lives up to its advance billing, it could fill a very annoying gap in the line-up of .Amiga DTP programs, and stimulate a wave of Amiga-based font creation. ? ~JE MakeYour Productions Look Like AmrDion Bucks For Only $ 99 4 ., Upgrade your AmigaVisiori" to the new AmigaVision Professional V riv for only $ 99 AmigaVision Professional is ideal for interactive courseware designers, multimedia developers, point-of-information displays, and business, government, and educational presentations.

I.k Orcle 184 on Reader Service card Digging in to DOS A SERIES THAT EXPLORES THE AMIGA’S RELEASE 2 OPERATING SYSTEM Our series’final installment, explains why AmigaDOS 2’s Commodities programs have nothing Before Workbench
2. 0 came along, to do with ivheat futures, but lots to Amiga owners used a hodge-podge of utility programs to perform specialized functions involving the mouse and keyboard. Different utilities would activate a window as the mouse pointer passed over it, assign text strings to function keys, or launch programs with a series of keystrokes. The problem was that these background programs would often interfere with applications such as word processors that relied on the function keys for their own purposes. Moreover, there was no guarantee that two such programs wouldn’t both require the Alt-Fl key combination, for instance, for different purposes. Do with easy customization of your system. Workbench 2,0 addresses this problem, providing an officially sanctioned method for creating utility programs that manipulate mouse and keyboard input. This new facility makes it easier to create such programs and minimizes the risk that they will interfere either with applications programs or with each other. The system software at the heart of this scheme is the Commodities library, and programs that make use of it are called commodities. The standard commodities that Commodore supplies are found in the Commodities drawer in the Tools directory of your Workbench partition (if you have a hard drive), or of the Extras floppy disk. Shared Values While Commodities programs perform a wide range of functions, they have certain features in common. Each commodity is assigned a priority that determines which gets first crack at the input information. This priority value usually defaults to zero, but you can change il by editing the ToolTypes in the commodity’s icon. You do this by clicking once on the icon, and selecting Information from the Icons menu on the Workbench. This brings up a window in which you can edit the lines of text in the ToolTypes list. The relevant line reads CX_PRIORITY=x, where x is the priority number. ? BY SHELDON LEEMON DOS 2.0 1* A R T 7 Another feature many commodities share is a control window from which you can alter the programs' settings. The CXPOPUP ToolType determines whether or not this window appears when you first run the program. If the ToolType reads CX_POPUP=NO, the program will run without opening its window. Even if the window does not open automatically, however, each commodity with a settings window also has a corresponding key combination, designated in its CX POP- KEY ToolType, that can be used to make this window appear. Because the descriptions of the key combinations are relatively straight forward (the phrase “CTRL ALT B” describes the three keys you must press to bring uj) the Blanker screen, for example), you can easilv change them, or just read them from the Information window if you forget what they are. You can also bring up a Commodities Settings window by using the Exchange program. This program, aiso located in the Commodities drawer, acts as a control center for all of your Commodities programs. When you run Exchange, it displays a list of all of the commodities that are currently running. Its gadgets allow you to show or hide the settings window for a particular program, deactivate or reactivate the program, or remove the program from the list by sending it a message to quit. Choice Picks Several standard Commodities programs come with Workbench versions 2.0 and higher. One of the simplest is AutoPoint, a program that activates any window over which the mouse pointer passes. This program does not have a control window you just double-click on its icon to start it and double-click again to turn it olf. The NoCapsLock program works much the same way, but serves to disable the Caps Lock key. You can still use the Shift keys, but with NoCapsLock running, accidentally pressing the Caps Lock key won’t suddenly shift you to ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. Screen blanket s arc programs that put up a blank screen if you don’t use the mouse or keyboard for a certain period of time.

Monitor. Commodore’s Commodities version is called Blanker, and in its simplest form, it pops up a control window into which you enter the number of seconds of inactivity that you want to elapse before the screen turns black. The 2.1 version adds a couple of options to create screen activity so that you won’t forget about the blanker and think that your computer has suddenly gone dead. The Cycle Colors option causes the screen color to cycle through various shades, while the Animation option creates a moving pattern of lines that whirl around the screen. If both options are selected, the lines change color as they move. .As with most commodities, the options are saved in the program icon, using the TboITypes CYCLECOLORS=YES (or NO), AN I'm ATI ON=YES (or NO), and SEC()NDS = x, where x represents the number of seconds of inactivity before Blanker activates. Programs that add more keyboard shortcuts have always been popular, so it is no surprise that a couple of these types of commodities are included. The Ihelp (short for Intuition Helper) program lets you use the keyboard to perform a number of window-sizing and - activation functions that normally would require the mouse. By default, the El key invokes the Cycle Windows function, which brings the rearmost application window on the Workbench screen to the front and activates it. The F2 key enlarges the active window to its maximum size, while F3 shrinks it to its minimum; E4 cycles through possible sizes, as does clicking the Zoom gadget. The E5 key cycles through screens, bringing the rear screen to the front, as does the Left-Amiga-M combination. You can change any of these defaults by editing the IoolTvpes in the program’s icon. These default to CYCLE=F1, MAKEBIG=E2, MAKESMALL = F3, CYCLESCREEN = F4, and ZIPWINl)OW=Ef>. Functionally Literate The Fkey commodity is the program that finally answers the question “What do I do with those function keys, anyway?” Fkey allows you to assign text to function keys (F1-F10) and shifted function keys. For example, if you assign “Dir n” to the FI key. When you press FI at a Shell prompt, the function key will type in the Dir command and hit Return (the n is the new line command that automatically presses the Return key at the end of the line). Abu can also assign special keystrokes such as the zero on the numeric r keypad to a function key. 'Ehis allows you to emulate the numeric pad even on the Amiga 600, which does not have these keys. The 2.1 version of Fkey carries this idea much further. In this version, you can assign functions to virtually any key or combination of keys oil the keyboard; such functions are not restricted merely to inserting a string of text characters, either. For example, you can assign any of the Ihelp functions (Cycle Windows, Cycle Screens, Enlarge Window, Shrink Window, Toggle Window Size) to any key, thus eliminating the need for a separate 11 lelp program. Like the popular public-do- main program PopCLI, 2.1’s Fkey also allows you to run a program or Arexx script just by pressing one or more keys. Hie ClickToFranl program allows you to bring a window to t he front of the screen by double-clicking anywhere inside it, which can be very handy if the depth gadget is not visible. By default, you must also press the Left Alt key while double-clicking in order to move the window. You can change this qualifier key, or eliminate it entirely, by changing the QUALIFIER = ToolType. Possible choices include Lalt, Halt, Control, and None. With the addition of the Cross DOS file-exchange program to Workbench 2.1 came a new CrossDOS commodity. This program allows you to specify text filtering of files read from an MS-DOS disk, such as changing the carriage-return and line-feed combination used in MS-DOS text files to the simple line iced used in .Amiga text files. A translation button also allows you to do character translations, such as eliminating MS-DOS line-drawing characters that do not have Amiga equivalents. One new commodity made its debut in Workbench
3. 0. MouseBlanker makes the mouse pointer invisible whenever you are typing on the keyboard. This eliminates the annoying situation in which the mouse pointer hides what you are typing. Commodities Futures Although the Commodities scheme makes things easier for both the programmer and the user, it does exact a cost in the form of increased overhead. 1 laving a number'of Commodities programs running at the same time means that the system may have to check with each one every time you press a key or click the mouse. While this should not cause a noticeable slowdown under ordinary circumstances, it may if you run lots of commodities on an unacce I crated machine. Ib prevent this problem, Commodore software engineers have indicated that they may integrate the functions of some small Commodities programs, such as Click- ToFront, directly into a future Kickstart version. Even if Commodore reduces the number of standard commodities that it includes with Workbench, however, there will still be an enormous number ol public-do- main and shareware Commodities programs. These include screen blanket s, clocks, print spoolers, window manipulators, text cut-ancl-paste utilities, and programs that add items to the Workbench Tools menu. 11 the idea of performing complex tasks with a single keystroke appeals to you, you'll find it worthwhile to track down some of these programs, m Sheldon Leemon is a frequent contributor to Amiga World and writes for several other computer publications. He also wrote the fourth edition of the AmigaDOS Reference Guide (COMPUTE Books), a guide to using the CIJ under operating-system releases 2 and 3. When he's not writing, you can often find him at Slipped Disk, a Detroit- area Amiga dealership. This article concludes our seven-part look at using the new features of Workbench 2.0.

- Oh 1 GRAPHICS 51 A continuing scries of tips, techniques. And tricks for creating more imaginative Amiga graphics. By Joel Hagen MANY AMIGA ARTISTS have never really explored the world of desktop publishing. I have fallen completely in love with it, although 1 confess I use it primarily for gags, fun, and hoaxes. (A few of my 44SAND FIRE WARNING” signs can still be seen on bulletin boards in Death Valley.) If you are new to DTP, perhaps this column will give you an overview of some fun ways you 4 can get involved. Desktop-publishing software lets you create professional-looking page layouts on your home computer. You can combine text, images, and other graphic elements with powerful control over size, composition, type style, and so forth. You can then print your page at any resolution your printer supports. This means that you can bypass the layout serv ices of a print shop and produce high-quality ads, newsletters, reports, and so on at your computer. If you own a laser printer, you can print fairly nice versions of these at 300 dpi. A service bureau, of course, can print them at much higher resolutions for truly professional results. Most desktop-publishing programs share similar features. The accompanying illustration shows the interface of Soft-Logik's PageStream 2.21. That particular version has been attractively updated and streamlined. It is smooth to work with and easy to learn. The illustration shows a magnified area of the page; the tools on the right and menu bar above contain a multitude of convenient features vou can utilize to create and modify clean page layouts. Shown here are two examples of mixed text and graphics such as you might use in a letterhead or business logo. PageStream. Professional Page (Gold Disk), and other DTP programs come with several basic fonts included. More exotic display fonts such as the ones shown here are available from other sources and can be great fun to play with. Fonts are available in public- domain collections, online via modem downloads, and in commercial packages. One particularly good source of display fonts is Allied Studios (sec p. 92 for address and phone number), which supplies bundles of fonts for both PageStream and Pro Page at reasonable prices. The variety should be enough to keep any font-hungry desktop designer satisfied for some time. (Editor’s Note: AW is presenting a comprehensive, two-part Buyer's Guide to Amiga Fonts, beginning with DTP fonts in this issue, p. 43.) If you use a lot of these complex display fonts, however, you may fincl that your printer refuses to process the page. This can usually be remedied. In PageStream, for example, you can bring up the Configure Printer requester from the Global menu. Enter “auto-unload” under Special and select the Save Default button. Each font will be dumped from the printer memory when a new font loads. “Zing Went the Strings of My Art .. Typefaces are not always letters of the alphabet. Fonts such as Zingers, Dingbats, Ornaments, and other special sets have ornate pictures, symbols, and border designs in place of letters. The Viking ship in the illustration, for example, is typed to the screen when you press the u key in one of Allied’s Zinger fonts. Having a selection of these clean little graphic spots available as fonts is often handier than sorting through disks of clip art. The sun image in the Planet Productions logo was created using techniques discussed at greater length in Accent 13 (see Sept. ’92, p. 44). The sun was drawn in DcluxePaint’s (Electronic Arts) high-resolution mode, then converted to a scalable PostScript object using the Trace program included with Gold Disk's Professional Draw. This gives an interesting “woodcut” character to the printed image that is difficult 62 May 1993 * Whether for serious business purposes or just for a little light-hearted diversion, specialized desktop-publishing projects can be a lot of fun. To achieve with standard drawing software. The ability to convert painted or scanned line art into clean, liigh-reso- lution printed graphics is a powerful feature of desktop-publishing operations that can become addictive to any computer artist. I5E* AT p 11 i 1 o o e & 6
0. 188* I There are also many materials avail- able now to DTP artists that expand the options at the printout stage. Paper companies are paying attention to the growing phenomenon of desktop publishing and are producing preprinted ancl clie-cut stock suitable for laser printers. Von can even buy packs of paper printed with marble texture, color gradients, headlines, and a variety of colorful designs ready to run J o through your laser printer or copier. You can buy laser-ready adhesive backed labels in a variety of sizes and shapes. Also available at paper supply outlets are clie-cut laser sheets of Rolodex cards, doorknob hanger signs, badge making kits, ancl other specialty items. An even more unique option you might want to try is the hoi-foil effect. Allied Studios and other sources sell packs of a special foil designed to be used with laser printers and most copiers. A piece of the special foil can be fastened to a laser printout and run through the machine a second time. The heat and pressure of the rollers slipped back onto the shelf. The ultimate satisfaction is hearing a checker’s voice over the loudspeaker asking, “Price check on Anteater Surprise? ’ ¦ Joel Hagen's credits include work in art, astronomy, science, fiction, and software development. Write to him at 10512 Sawyer, Oakdale, CA 95361. Please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope causes the foil to adhere only to the printed areas. The unused foil is simply peeled off. You have to see this effect to believe it. Mv Favorite varia* tion is the hologram diffraction foil. For either business or Fine-art experiments, this is an amazing trick. Be aware, however, that while using foil is a proven technology, it is not what laser primers were intended to do so he cautious. If you put your imagination to work, there really are no limits to the kinds of fun projects possible with an Amiga, DTP software, and a laser printer (even hiis screen from PageStream shows a magnified area rad the Vikinq ship are from Allied Studios colic page layout. Display fonts sun Image was painted in
• caiable object witl t and then converted to dot-matrix results looks pretty good.) Anything you do looks official. You can j O J crank out fortune-cookie messages, signs for your kid’s door, personalized jam and pickle labels, KGB letterheads, bumper stickers, Foreign Legion draft notifications . . . The mind boggles. Even- now and then I attend a conference where 1 want to hav e a business card containing information relevant to that particular situation. In an hour on my Amiga I can whip out a few sheets of unique cards or letterheads for the occasion. Tricks like the hot-foil eff ect are perfect for these limited special inns. Back in the gag department, you could try using the ideas mentioned here to print fake can labels of Klingon Chile (or whatever) and glue them over real cans from the supermarket. I have spent some fine afternoons hanging around the gencric-food aisle watching people’s reaction to a stack of corn cans I bought, relabeled, and then Adding Sound Simply At last, desktop-video production embraces audio- without requiring acrobatics. IS LITE By Steve Gillmor AMIGA DEVELOPMENT HAS often overlooked the fact that desktop video includes sound as well as visuals. Now, new tools allow Toaster users to integrate video and audio in an automated post-production environment. The Blue Ribbon SoundWorks has just released Bars&Pipes Professional
2. 0, which adds powerful multimedia extensions to the original MI Di-sequencing software. Video producers will appreciate the new Media Madness module, which lets you control multimedia devices on unlimited, simultaneous tracks alongside the music. Add Blue Ribbon’s One-Stop Music Shop 16-bit E-Mu sampler-on- a-card ($ 649) and SunRize Industries’ Studio 16 AD516 stereo cligital-audio system ($ 1495) and you have all the elements under Bars & Pipes’ timeline control. Media Madness supports many devices and formats directly (see “A Show of Strength,” Apr. ’93, p. 30, for details), and its Command Performance tool can control others via Arexx and the serial port. We’ll limit this discussion to the Toasty tool, which controls Toaster transitions, and the SunRize Virtual Track tool. On Top of Ol’ Toaster The Media Madness window integrates multimedia tools into Bars&Pipes, displaying each track horizontally as a timeline with vertical SMPTE (hours, minutes, seconds, frames) or music time reference marks. Unlike Bars&Pipes’ main Track window where you can place multiple tools, each Media Madness track holds just one tool. After installing the tools you need in the Toolbox, you add one to a track by dragging it from the Toolbox over the default Output icon. Then you open its Control window to customize the tool. The Toasty tool’s Control window displays much of the familiar Toaster Switcher interface along the top of the window, with names replacing icons for the banks of Switcher commands. Media Madness Control windows translate each tool’s commands into the common musical Bars&Pipes language by assigning each event to a specific MIDI note. The Hit List Translation mechanism gives a textual description to each note; in the Toasty tool’s case, Cf> becomes Shatter or Sheep, C 5 is Smooth Fade or Tear Page, and so on. Each note can have up to six Toaster commands, so you can bunch related commands to set up your Program and Preview video inputs, for example, or choose a transition and activate it with the Auto command. It’s a good idea to assign multiple transition sequences to individual notes in the Control window, and then save each group of effects in a catalogue by copying the Toasty icon to one of eight Tooltrays. This way, you can skip the setup next time, and simply drag a prepared Toasty icon from a Tooltrav to a new track. You can lest your transitions while in the Control window via the Test button. When you are satisfied, close the Control window and click on the Pencil icon in the Media Madness window. Now, simply click to add events on the timeline of your Toasty track. You can change to a Hand icon to move existing events, an Eraser icon to remove them, and so on. All the Bars&Pipes Transport controls are active, so you can move to the main Track window and play the events by clicking on the VCR-1 ike Play, Fast Forward, Rewind, and Stop buttons. More convenient is the Mini- Transport window, which you can summon with the m key. Because you can synchronize Bars&Pipes with external devices via SMPTE time code, you can also start and slop Media Madness tracks externally. Set For Sound SunRize’s AD516 digital-audio board with companion Studio 16 2.0 software is one source for SMP TE time code. The AD516 is a 16-bit stereo card allowing up to eight channels ol simultaneous playback. Its internal SMPTE time-code reader allows it to create extensive Cue Lists of samples to trigger to a videotape. The Studio 16 software lets you record, edit, and play back CD-quality stereo sound. SunRize and The Blue Ribbon SoundWorks have collaborated to allow complete control of the AD516 from within Bars&Pipes. Arexx commands can also be sent to initiate recording, load and play samples, and set volume and panning levels. We’ll use the Media Madness SunRize Virtual Track tool to integrate the AD516, in conjunction with Bars&Pipes’ Mix Maestro automated mix-down feature. Mix Maestro gives you real-time control over volume and stereo-panning levels by recording MIDI-control changes on a track. You can go through each track in your song, setting the various levels and stereo posit ioning of your instruments to ? Optimum levels; the same holds true for AD516 samples. With the Virtual Track tool, you can add tracks for a lead vocal, voice-over, or mult it rack mix down of audio dubbed from videotape all synchronized with MIDI musical events and Toaster transitions. To illustrate, I'll detail the steps necessary to coordinate an audio video transition between two sequences a procedure you might use several times for a typical production. V I I) i; 0 s L l T E Team Effort Because the Toaster disables multitasking while performing Switcher effects, the rest of your Bars&Pipes performance halts during Toaster transitions. A remedy for this is Sun- Rize’s Toaster Handler, which replaces your existing AD516 device driver and allows you to play one or two tracks while performing a Toaster effect. A more powerful approach is to assemble your final video in two passes, first with Toaster visual transitions and then with the audio mix. Better still, you can coordinate two Ami gas, which I’ll return to later. For now, let’s assume you have a video-editing setup that allows you to record video on one pass and audio on a second. I use Sony Hi8 Vdecks that I can control using serial commands sent by the Command Performance tool. Blue Ribbon’s One-Stop Music Shop not only gives vou 16 channels of 16- J O bit multitimbral stereo sound, but also a MIDI interface for attaching a synthesizer keyboard. This frees up the serial port for triggering the Vdecks or another .Amiga. A word about SMPTE: There are nianv ways to record and synchronize consumer, prosumer, and professional VCRs. Some machines have an additional third linear track just for time code. Others allow you to overdub on hi-fi tracks without erasing the original video, while a common low-end solution is to use one channel for time code and the other for a mono mix down. In all cases the outcome is the same: SMPTE time code recorded on a track that triggers Bars&Pipes. I use the Studio 16 expansion module SMPTE Output, which employs your Amiga to generate time code for recording on your VCR audio track. Connect the VCR SMPTE audio output to the AD516 SMFTE-In jack, which passes the time code on to Bars&Pipes via the SMPTE accessory module. Bars&Pipes then performs the song under SMPTE control, in turn triggering MIDI music, Toasty transitions, and SunRize audio events when the time code reaches the appropriate points on the timeline. First, preview and lay down the visual transition between your two scenes: a smooth, three-second fade from source A to source B. Next, add a Vir tual Track tool, designating the recording start time at the same point the Toasty effect begins. Just as in a regular MIDI track for Bars&Pipes Pro, the Virtual T rack tool's track must be in Record mode and the Record button in the Transport Controls must be set for recording to occur. Click the Play or Play From Beginning buttons and record source A's audio for the three seconds, pressing Stop to end recording. Repeat the same tasks with a second Virtual Track to record the source B audio. If you select both L and R buttons on the set-up panel, stereo samples are recorded with the Left sample panned full left and the Right at full right. Set both Virtual Tracks for playback and use Studio 16 editing tools to clean up the samples if needed. Finally, bring up the Mix Maestro window, which displays level faders equal to the total number of tracks in the performance. Since you can perform a mix down on only one track at a time, yon should first set the source B volume to 0 and use the Mix Maestro menu’s Snapshot selection to set initial values for the track. Now well begin playing back the tracks, first fading down the source A audio where the transition occurs. When you play it back, you will see that the fade has been recorded and is automatically performed each time. Next, fade in source B to complete the audio dissolve. If you like, add a third Virtual T rack, and record a digital bounce-down of the mix if you need to save RAM, or just let Mix Maestro replay the mix as you insert the new audio on your VCR's audio track(s). On Automatic Other Bars&Pipes features let you configure and store sets of tracks to automate this procedure. To demonstrate this, first let's store a Smooth Fade transition on the C5 note in the Toasty track, and add a Branch Out tool on the same track (1) in the main Track window. (Both the Media Madness and Track windows are active at the same time; actions taken in one are mirrored in the other.) The Branch Out tool sends a duplicate of each event that enters it dawn a connecting pipe to another pipeline, in this case our first Virtual Track on track 2. Add a Merge tool on track 2 to receive the duplicate events, then double-click on track 2 to enter the editor. Select Control Change from the Show menu, choose Control Change ... in the Display menu and set the requester to Controller 7, use the Pencil to draw a fade-in from zero to full volume, and cut the results to the Clipboard. Drag a Loop tool from the I oolbox to track 2, placing it after the Merge tool, and open the Loop Control window. Select Paste From Clipboard from the Tool menu to paste the fade- in changes, and choose Trigger from the Performance menu. In the Loop Control window, set the Root note to C5 (same as the Toasty event). Finally, add a Branch Out icon after the Loop tool on track 2, and another Merge tool on your second Virtual I rack on track 3. Place a Controllnvertcr tool after the Merge tool (this turns a 0 volume Control Change into a 127, and so on, with a lade out as the result). Holding the Shift key, dick once on each track to select them, then choose Save Group from the Group menu. Now you have your dissolve j j sequence available at any time: Simply load the grouped tracks, establish the SMPTE time where the transition begins in your Toasty track, and set your Virtual T racks to play the samples at the appointed time. Vou can record new samples in this configuration; the volume control changes are in effect only during playback. If you have a second Amiga, you can install the One-Stop Music Shop and the SunRize AD516 with Bars&Pipes and communicate with your Toaster-equipped machine through the serial ports via a null- modern cable. Run the Toaster Receive utility on the Toaster machine and set the Local Remote button to Remote in the Toasty tool's Control window. Now you can preview and perform Toaster transitions, SunRize sample sequencing, and One-Stop Music Shop MIDI performances simultaneously, mixing in one pass to tape. You can take advantage of repeatable NB roll editing to construct your productions with second-generation “work prints,” then go back when you've got everything just right and work from your original tapes, fl Steve Gillmor has produced and directed films, audio recordings, and radio and television programs. He enjoys bringing professional-level technology to his Amiga. Since 1982 800-554-9980 .omputAbilitv Consumer Electronics HARD DRIVES Quantum' 2 year warranty!

• Call for Free Catalog & Items Not Listed r The n bame r reserve Epic Wing Commander By Peter Olafson BREAK OU 1 11 IE champagne: We’ve been waiting for these two flyboys to buzz the Amiga for some time now. The space- combat games Wing Commander (an import from the UK's Mindscape Internationa], $ 39.95) and Epic (Ocean, $ 49.95), each in development in Europe for around two years, have finally turned up in US air space. Both games are solid and engrossing, each in its own very different way. But I have to Tess up: Anyone who plays Wing Commander on a speedy machine first isn't likely to be bowled over by Epic afterward. Wing Commander will, quite simply, blow you away. Wing Commander WC is a superb translation of Chris “Times of Lore” Robert’s Origin game lor the IBM. You’re a lighter pilot newly assigned to the Tiger’s Claw a spaceward version of an aircraft carrier that’s about to take on an aggressive race of sentient felines called the Kilrathi. You'll fly a range of fighters, each with its own gifts of destruction, cockpit layout, and lovely array of options (two types of missiles and guns, afterburners, ejector seat the works). You can issue an array of taunts to the enemy (“Die, furbalU”) and commands to your wingmen (“Break and attack") actually, there are a number of wingwomen as well who'll respond on a green-screen monitor. Once you've fried the last of the “kitties” or cleared a belt of obstacles, you It’s you against the Kilrathi in Wing Commander. Can kick in die autopilot to jump to your next encounter with a neat side-view cut scene. Obstacles? You’ll play imergalactic dodgehall and 3-D asteroids with the Kilrathi proximity mines and asteroid fields. And watch out for swarms of enemy craft, ranging from pesky gnat sized lighters to giant ships of the line. The ships aren’t the polygon constructs used in games like Elite, Starglider, Federation, or Xiphos, either. They look like real ships multicolored and odd-shaped and once they’ve taken a couple of hits against weak shields, they’ll begin to disintegrate like real ships. A capital ship looks like a great slab of metal hanging in space, and nothing blows up as gorgeously as a Kilrathi destroyer. The ex- Con tinned on p. 72 We left off last time about two- thirds of the way through Lure of the Temptress = Konami, S49.95) with Mallin offering Diermot a job. Take it a job's a job, after atl and he'll turn over the book he wants you to take to Morkus. That name should ring a bell. = Didn't the Skorl teli you something nasty about him when you chatted them up as Selena?) CRIB NOTES By Peter Olafson So this time, don't do as you're told. Instead, take the book to the monks Toby in particular. (Bet you were wondering when we'd get to them.) They'll reward you and bring you up to date on a particular dragon namely, on the recipe to bring him under your control. Off to Goewin's herb shop. Then, to put it together. Oops. Seems Goewin doesn't have any cowbane. Ain't it always this way with recipes in adventure games? You can find it two ways. The honest way is to have a talk with Luthern's voluble old mother or to send Ratpouch (who's still hanging around) to do it for you. The dishonest way is to make a beeline for the flower bed in front of the forge. Either way, take the herb back to Goewin, and she'll make you a nice herbal milkshake. You don't know where the dragon is, but someone else does. The subject's come up before in conversation with Grubb (the fellow lounging around in front of the Magpie). He'll send you off to the Weregate which is closed. Great, Thanks for the sour persimmons, cousin. However, Ultar at the Severed Arms is now prepared to mutter something more useful than his usual nonsense. He'll name the gargoyles who flank the gate, and Fen- gael and Hammawen will tell you that they're supposed to let only women through. (Ultar himself evidently went in drag lots of cross- dressing in this game!) You know a woman Goewin and while this doesn't sound like one of her favorite things, she'll go for it. You rescued her, after all. Open sez me! Hey, new areas! And new puzzles. In the first cave beyond the gate, you'll find two skulls. The right-hand one opens the way to the green cave. Look at both skulls before you move ahead, so Goewin will know what you’re talking about when you give her this next set of orders. Instruct her to return to the first cave, pull the left and then the right skulls, and return. On into the blue cave. Pulling the left skull brings Goewin through, and once again, you bossy little misogynist, you'll want to send her back to the green cave to do the the left-right number with the skulls again to open Continued on p. 72 To locate vendors of the games reviewed, see the "Manufacturers' Distributors' Addresses" list on p. 92.

T he missions start at a modest dilficnlty but quickly reach a level at which you’re unlikely to complete them in one go. Unlike in Epic, however, here you’re not simply booted back to the beginning to try again. (You can repeat the encounter if you thought to save your progress.) Wing Commander uses a “tree” structure that plots the story along different tracks according to your success against the Kilralhi. (If you fail too often, human forces fall hack.) You should play once just to play and damn the consequences and then play again to win. Some folks will grouse that it displays only 32 colors compared to the IBM’s 256, but we’re not getting short shrift. T hey’re the right 32 colors. The difference is noticeable only in the bar and preflight scenes and the effect hardlv unpleas- ing at that. The music, by contrast, has a real John-Williams-slyle flair and easily surpasses the synthetic version that accompanied the IBM original. I also found the joystick control significantly lighter and the craft generally more responsive. On the intermission screens, however, the cursor's speed is appalling and the fire button has to be double-clicked for an option to take effect. (They’ve taken out mouse support, but failed to kick the pointer into the background, so it sits in the playfield, immobile and semi-visible.) The major issue here, however, is speed. Bitmaps move more slowly than polygons. Wing Commander runs brilliantly tin a machine equipped with a 68030 or '040, and an ‘020 is more than adequate. On an unaccelerated A500, however, it's decidedly slow; gainers using this machine may want to consider Epic instead. Epic T he Epic lighter (lies incredibly smoothly on a basic Amiga; ii has the same greased-wheels sensation as Ocean’s earlier E-29 Retalialor (which is from the same programming team). It’s a sort of super Starglider. They’ve kept the palette basic and the polygons warm and running, and on missions with land targets and a fixed surface to reckon the speed against, the game achieves the sort of reckless velocity more com- monly associated with Euro-demos. And that’s not the least of it. Epic has a glorious intro and cut scenes, music straight out of Robocop 3D, and shattering explosions that will make you blink. (I ley, explosions make a difference; they’re a sort of interim reward.) But, Epic just isn’t in the same league as WC. In space, it flies like an arcade game, with veiy little vertical range. You’d have better luck doing loop-the-loops in a tethered plane at an amusement park. It’s also small just nine missions compared to WC’s -10 or so. While they’ll probably take you longer to complete successfully than the average WC mission (they’ve been customized in loving detail), they’re always the same, giving you little incentive to replay the game. It also doesn’t go on hard disk. (Unlike the initial European version, the US version does recognize fast processors.) And I wish the story was more original. This saga of a refugee armada’s trek across dangerous space appears to have been borrowed from Batt estar Galactica. Can anything inspired by Lome Greene and Dirk Benedict be good? Actually, yes. And Epic is just not as good as Wing Commander. „ Continued on p, 6. CRIB NOTES From p. 68 the door into the last cave. No skulls here, but there is one mean critter in waiting. Save your game (this may take a couple of tries), grab that axe and have at his midsection. He's about a head taller than you, but he's slow. Use it to your advantage and be aggressive. (I've also seen reports that the overhead chop method is effective.) Once the baddie is history, head into the dragon's lair. Don't muck about here or your goose will be cooked, dragon-style. Use your potion immediately, and Diermot's wish is the big lizard's command. He'll tel! That Selena has been possessed by a demon and then surrender the magical Eye of Gethryn, which is going to prove very useful one of these screens. But now it's sleepy-time for this boy, so take your leave, using the left skull on your way out. You may feel a bit at loose ends wandering around Turnvale at this point. I suggest just talking to your allies. It seems Luthern's plot isn't the only one afoot; the Skorl have a score to settle with Selena as well. Mallin can put you on to it. Wait outside the shop in the marketplace until one of these goblin relatives comes calling. After he enters, peer in the window I love this feature. You'll overhear him moaning to proprietor Ewan about the lack of food and urging him into a barrel bound for the castle. Once the Skorl's gone, offer to take Ewan's place. Voi a: You're in the castle basement and into the endgame. Note the wine barrel in the left corner. You can't actually do much here at the moment, so visit the kitchen. Here you'll find some fat (in the carcass), some tongs (close by), and a malleable young 'un named Minnow. Back in the cellar, use the tongs to pull the bung from the barrel, and now have Minnow tell his boss that there's someone in the cellar. This has the benefit of being true. The Skorl are all drunken louts at heart, however, and this one will slurp up the wine and fall asleep. (Naturally, you'll want to be as inconspicuous as possible while this is going on. The cellar's right corner should do nicely.) Don't throw Minnow back just yet. Now you just have to find Selena, and you'll need his help again. Across the dining room, you'll find a gatehouse with some rusty machinery. The fat should prove a good lubricant for that lever; have Minnow pull it as you turn the winch. This lowers the drawbridge and opens the path to Selena. Oh, dear. There's one more thing. There's this other critter on the bridge, so save your game and have at it again, using the same basic moves as in the caves. Then press on to the left and let nature (and the end animation) take its course. It's a rather neat bit. I guess the title had a point after all, eh? That's it for this issue. Next time, as promised, we'll visit one of the shadow lands. I just haven't decided which; Shadowlands itself or Shadow of the Beast III. Looking for More Power From Your A500, A1000 or A2000?

SHORT TAKES By Peter Olafson ZOOL Uchess Giger-Tetris The first AGA games have started to trickle in, and as you might expect, they're a rather mixed lot. The first commercial offering is an enhanced version of Gremlin's Zool = about S35). He's the ninja ant who runs around zapping blobs and picking up sweets. (He's an ant, after all.) It's a grand old platform game of the sort practiced by Mario and Sonic, with sticky fingers in lieu of the former's inveterate cuteness and the latter's demonic speed. The graphics, while good, are a little too childish for my taste the poster and stickers enclosed with the game give away the intended audience but it's also a bit tougher than standard platform fare. If you already have the original Zool, I wouldn't bust a gut racing to feed this to your A1200. The changes seem to be only cosmetic: elabor-ate backdrops where none existed before (which have the effect of better camouflaging the game's critters), more music, and the same play as the original. Roger Uzun's freeware Uchess (widely available) is very pretty, keeps getting better (the latest is version 2.25), and boasts a creditable record against reputable, commercial chess games. Trouble is, its system requirements are a bit on the video workstation side 10 megs for the fullblown "L" version and four for the standard version. How about a two-meg version for us Idiot's Mate specialists, Rog? Finally, there's Giger-Tetris, which I've found (as TETRIS.DMS) only on The Forge, an excellent BBS in the Kingston, Ontario area. It's from a Danish shareware outfit called Panic Productions and is a glossy version of the classic falling-block game with one of the Swiss artist's alien-woman-in- black-scuba-gear paintings as the playfield backdrop. Just the thing to play during a break from Darkseed. And stylish, too. The Addams Family It's showtime! Look out behind you, Mario. Gomez is creeping up. The leader of this odd brood wears the same crazy, devil-may-care grin throughout the game. It's as though he's having fun, and well he should. This Ocean production (S49.95) inspired by, but not truly based on, the inane movie is light, frothy stuff: huge levels, tons of secret areas, interesting challenges in jumping and swimming, and immediate access to many regions via the central stairway of this ramshackle house. At the same time, it's all a bit spartan and broadly drawn for this sort of game, and I suspect more could have been done with backgrounds and sprites. Populous II: The Challenge Games Were this data disk from Electronic Arts simply a bunch of extra worlds to take over in Populous II, this review would begin and end with one sentence: More of Populous It.

There's no substitute for EXPERIENCE SOUTH FLORIDA'S 111 CHOICE - Se Habla Espano! (i A M E I* H E S E K V E MORE SHORT TAKES included, along with a new Japanese graphic set, and an additional (and particularly annihilatory) God command. But that's only half of The Challenge Games ($ 29.95). Also provided are 42 problem-solving "challenges" keyed to survival of your itty-bitty people rather than simple demolition of The Other Side. This is a wonderful twist, making for almost a whole new game. (It does require Populous II, however.) Highly recommended. Multiple Wessonality The folks at Wesson International apparently don't do things halfway. I was expecting a couple of data disks for their Tracon II air-traffic-controller sim when a bulky parcel turned up and no fewer than 15 of them spilled out ($ 19.95 each). They cover a very healthy portion of the globe, with three for Australia alone. This is sort of akin to subLOGIC releasing scenery disks for the whole earth, plus bits of the moon and Mars, in one bash. An act of dedication if I ever saw one. Bravo. Recantation Dept.: Apparently the voices in the parent game don't use the Say utility, as I claimed in the review a few issues back. They just sound as though they do. Ashes of Empire Mike Singleton strikes again and, once again, hits home. Ashes of Em pire (distributed by Electronic Innovative Design; about $ 50) a vast mix ture of strategy, arcade, and resource management is basically Midwinter
III. You've been enlisted to stabilize, province by province, a none-too-well- disguised version of the post-Cold-War USSR. That means 3-D travel and combat in scads of different vehicles, negotiating, and stockpiling supplies. That task is dizzyingly complicated even compared to the already complex Flames of Freedom and could have used a proper keyboard overlay or just a quick-reference card instead of the punch-out cardboard counters that we're supposed to place over the relevant keys. ("Lose me!" They scream at me.) But you'll appreciate the introductory NTSC video that leads you through the pacification of a sample province. Thanks a bunch, Mike. You just used up my spare time. Megatraveller II: Quest for the Ancients The second part of Paragons's Megatraveller series is enormous it has around 100 planets and sometimes size itself is a blessing. In Quest for the Ancients (S59.95) it's a mite dull. A lot of detail has been lavished on this game like an on-line encyclopedia but the myriad cities just seem too much alike, and it's hard to stay involved when the game creeps along at this speed. The nicest thing about the game is the "PAL" system, which, when enabled, allows each character to assume the role to which he or she is best suited in a given situation. It made me feel as though I was playing with other people not just subroutines and that feeling is priceless. Alas, the game's also a bit buggy. More than once I found myself trapped in conversations I couldn't escape except by rebooting. ¦ No« avaUff VttS *ot Recorded in Full Stereo!

Also, CD-ROMs... and Fish. By Tim Walsh The A500: Still Fierce, or Fading Fast?
Q. As' an A500 owner, I am concerned with its future, given the recent releases of (he A600 and A1200. Will the A 500Jade into oblivion, much as the A 1000? Should I get one of the new machinest Joseph Isaia III Carpentersville, 11..
A. Last month, I fielded common questions I’ve received from A2000 and A3000 owners who s e wondered if ihe A4000 meant the demise of their machines. A500 owners who, incidentally, constitute the bulk of our readership share these concerns, especially in regard to the A1200. Reliable sources indicate that Commodore is no longer producing the A500 no big deal, really, thanks to third-part)* hardware companies whose economic well-being hinges on the A500 market. In short, third-party companies are ensuring a long-term future for the machine. Additionally, classified computer ads bloom throughout the year with A500 listings, providing sources for parts. I never tire of telling A500 owners that thev have the basic framework for not only a fiercely fast computer, but also one nothing else can touch at near the price. My well-documented opinion (see our cover story in June ’92) heavily favors excavating the A500 s stork 68000 internals in favor of something of the 68030 persuasion. While the following hardly constitutes a comprehensive list of upgrade products, here are some proven ideas: For around $ 500, you can breathe new life into your existing A500 system with a Cev Design Xpander Chassis (SI29) and add Zorro II slots to it in the process, or choose ICD’s Trifecta 500 EC ($ 299) and add a low-cost IDE-type hard-drive controller. Loosen the wallet a bit more ancl opt for ICD’s 5001.X (.$ 349) to give your A500 SCSI drive compatibility. Whichever combo you order, an AmigaDOS 2.1 upgrade kit ($ 99 with ROMs, $ 49 without) is a must. You could round out a sensible upgrade with either a low-cost ($ 199) Supra Turbo 28 68HC000 or Preferred Technologies’ Blizzard Board ($ 259), for roughly a two-fold increase in processing speed. For less than $ 1000, you can upgrade big-time, and turn your A500 into a barn-burner with a Commodore A570 CD-ROM ($ 499) coupled with a CSA Derringer 030 ($ 249), or a GVP 530 Turbo 40 Mhz ’030 accelerator equipped with a 120MB hard drive ($ 949). For Si 295, you could pull out all the stops and install a 28 Mhz 68040, as in tiie 040 500 from Progressive Peripherals. Upgrading to the A1200 as an alternative to hopping up the A500 is purely a personal decision. By the time you read this, Commodore may have ended their Power Up program for the A1200 (termination date: March 31, ’93). There’s no official decision (yet) to extend this program, which, for $ 599, got you the A1200 with a copy of
F. A’s Dpaint IV and Softwood’s Final Copy word processor. It's not the 68020-based performance of the A1200 that sets it apart from the A500, since the older machine can be made to outperform the newer one by leaps and bounds. Rather, the AGA graphics and Workbench 3.0 combination on the A1200 make it the most attractive, low-cost computer currently available. 1 lowever, if someone builds an AGA chip-set adapter for the A500... Fishing For CD-ROMs Q, List year, a company advertised the entire Fred Fish collection of freely distributable files on one CD-ROM for S 50. What is the name oj the company ? A ow that more Amiga CD-ROMs are available. I'm ready O to make the leap. Donald Liptnan Highland Park, IF A, The company is HyperMedia Concepts (5200 Washington Ave., Suite 226, Racine, WI 53406, 414 632-3766). For those unfamiliar, the Fred Fish collection has been around since, well, since forever, and now numbers over 800 disks. With the whole collection on one CD-ROM, it sure sounds like a cost-effective media investment to me. If you have a modem and a network account, however, you can also access the entire Fred Fish collection on line, since the series' disks are available through both Portal and Genie. There are two reasons why it’s preferable to access it on line: First, it requires only a few moments to search for a disk (they’re sequentially numbered) that contains a particular file or subject matter that you're seeking. The second reason is, while a CD-ROM can't be updated (you have to buy new ones as they’re released), on line offerings are updated frequently. Almost as soon as a new disk is added to the collection, it becomes available on line. The on-line way seems like an attractive alternative to buying the collection on CD-ROM. Finally, I’d like to pass along an inexpensive way to add a CD-ROM to any Amiga system: Cl) IY. While 1 haven’t tried it, I’ve been told the Commodore CDTV units, which are easy to acquire through authorized dealers and are now being sold at drastically reduced prices, double well as CD-ROM players. Connect the CDTV to your Amiga via each machine’s parallel port and use Software Distillery's freely distributable Parnet networking software and your Amiga to access the data on CD-ROMs in the CD IV device. (And, when you’re done computing, if the CDTV is connected to your sound system, you can slip in a music CD and sit back and enjoy your favorite tunes!) ¦ Got a question an Amiga computing that you just can't seem to unlockt Write to Tim Walsh at Help Key, A m iga World, 80 Elm St., Peterborough,'Mil 03d58.

Brian Ben* who runs the multimedia O lab at Arizona State University, has good advice for the Amiga artist wannabe: “Prepare a strong portfolio of slides, prints, and videos. Devote the time during your education to this task before actually entering the job market." A college atmosphere may not be for everyone. As Mike Hanish observes, oftentimes, life experience and a unique point of view may serve you better than a decree. Other informational and learning opportunities exist outside of the academic environment:
• check out your local Amiga users club to see if it contains a special-inter- est group dedicated to graphics and animation
• contact your nearby Amiga dealer for computer courses being offered
• attend computer shows, where professionals may be teaching seminars and workshops on computer art
• stav informed about the constantly j * changing computer art industry
• frequent the on-line electronic networks, which oiler areas for Amiga users, as well as for artists
• become a member in a professional (computer art) organization Finally, Hanish advocates that aspiring artists should “find people whose work you admire and study or connect with them.” Above all, stay timed to what’s happening in the world around you. “To design effective computer graphics, you need the intuitive ability-' to perceive what is eye-appealing. Try to recognize the techniques used to create the commercials, print ads, and demo reels you view,” comments Berg. Rick Manasa has some advice for those who might consider themselves “out there” and who find traditional vehicles too limiting: “Watch the credits at the end of movies that display dazzling graphics (or the kind of graphics you like). Sometimes listed are ‘cowboy animators’ who set up shop on their own, because they didn’t (it in the mainstream. Contact them for advice.” Colorado student James asserts that while we should learn from the work of others (classic cartoons and animations, for example), it is best to “try to have vour own sense of style and use of color it may help you stand out from the pack and get the career you want.” Also, he adds that it doesn’t hurt if your work reflects an appropriate sense of humor. Dennis Brisson Editor-in-Ch ief But most of all, declares Bruce Elliot, “Don't wait. Buy an Amiga and some basic software and trv out your talents. X ? Most software programs are easy to master and allow you to do things impossible to do in I he more traditional materials.” Computer use is not only an inventive way to accomplish tasks, but computer skills are fast becoming requirements for success in today’s high-tech society, both in the classroom and the workplace, where companies are actively seeking computer-literate employees. No matter what direction von take, computer knowledge is essential. As one of our Amiga artists says, “computers are steadily making inroads into nearly every aspect of the art and animation culture, making a solid knowledge of computer animation and art essential to obtaining a career as an artist.” Commodore A1200 -- $ 559 The Amiga 1200 boasts a full 32-bit architecture, 68020 processor, Workbench 3.0, the new AGA graphics chip set, 2MB Chip RAM, and an internal IDE hard drive controller.

(308) 745-1243 Voice
(308) 745-1246FAX THE LAST WORD Kudos, complaints, comments, concerns, and contributions from our readers. Slightly Off Key I was distressed to lind that Gene I Jamin’s “Music of the Spheres” (Mar. ’93, p. 53) was slightly tarnished. Although his circle of fifths fit me like a glove, a technical error in the diagram left me composing some highly unusual chords. A few days after reading the article, I showed my choral director Hamm’s article. She thumbed through the pages, tried a few chords on the circle and shook her head, saying, “This is wrong.” I was crestfallen. As it turns out. The diagrams of the circle of fifths were misdrawn. The positions of B flat and E flat in the major chord progression in the outer rings of the diagrams should have been reversed. They should read C, F, B Hat, E fiat, A flat, and so 011. Having made rhis switch, Mr. Hamm’s theory once again fit like a glove. Brian Metcalf Sandy Hook, Connecticut We’ve received a bunch oj letters about this problem. Several professional musicians also expressed dismay that the article seemed to suggest that the Amiga could make you a composer "whetheryon know anything (dtout music or not. ” While we slated upfront that it was far 1people who want lo create music on the Amiga, but know little about music compositionwhether you’re a novice or a professional, B flat isn’t Eflat, and vice versa. Our apologies. Eds Losing Some Zip In the March On-Line Scan section, Tim Walsh referred to several archival programs, one of which was PKAZip. HIT readers should know that P.K.Ware will no longer be supporting the Amiga. Yep, PKAZip 1.0 is the first and last version of the program for the Amiga, according to the message I got through
P. K.Ware’s BBS. It’s too bad. Too, because PKAZip is one of the best archival programs ever written for the Amiga. I hope revisions will come from other programmers so Amiga users such as myself can continue to take advantage of the thousands of “ZIPped” programs available on BBSs. Mark A. Toni any Minooha, Illinois Keep Carving, CBM While some see the introduction of a new line of Amigas as creating a confusing list of options, 1 see the new machines as welcome additions from a company determined to carve out a sizable niche in the marketplace. Even the bookstore in my town now shelves The A 4000 is well suited for use in scientific laboratories as an instrument controller and m ultimedia workstation. Two Amiga-specific magazines (Amiga- World and Amazing Computing), which 1 consider a step -no matter how small in the right direction. Jim Heffernan I la rrisonbu rg, Virgin in We think it's a giant step! (But gee, Jim, did you have to go and mention that other magazine by name?) Eds Great at Science Too Recently I read an interesting survey in Personal Engineering and Instrumentation News in which the Amiga was mentioned. Apparently, 4cfc of the scientists and engineers who responded claimed the Amiga as their computer of choice. (I was one of them, incidentally.) The A4000 is well suited for use in scientific laboratories as an instrument controller and multimedia workstation. This is important in an area where technical, abstract information needs to be gathered, analyzed, and finally presented in an easily understandable way. Especially to a potential client. We need AIIA continued support to raise the scientific community’s aware- ness of the Amiga’s high potential. James J. Yuzwalk Livonia. Michigan Still the One In your February Overscan piece 011 the Cyber Arts conference, Patric I Iedlund claims that most multimedia development and applications are for the Mac. I've been selling multimedia products to studios, including Disney and Warner Bros., for quite awhile (all the major platforms), and I can tell you that the Amiga is still easily the leader in multimedia. QuickTime for the Mac doesn’t even come close to the professional quality of the Amiga, Adam Strange Valley Village, California What Mr. I Iedlund said was that most American multimedia developers use a Silicon Graphics workstation or a Macintosh, but be preceded the statement with John Donovan’s point that the Amiga, because of its “inherent architectural advantages, ” among other things, made it “the power platform for the future of multimedia. ” Is It in the Cards? Your February editorial, “Commodore Users at the Crossroads,” forecasts what I think most high-end Amiga owners want: AGA for the A2000 and A3000. An AGA card would be a total winner. For Amiga owners who can’t afford to upgrade to an A4000 ii would seem to be the logical next step.

C' Commodore AMIGA VIDEO TOASTER Because professional results demand professional tuols Joe Conti chose the Video Toaster. In Hollywood, time is money. And results matter. My job is to solve problems. I'm always tasked with finding cheaper, better and faster ways to produce elements...the Video Toaster fills all of those necessities." For Joe Conti, professional freelance animator, the Video Toaster is an all-in-one special effects tool: digital video effects, character generator, paint and 3D. It's all there. “With the availability of the Video Toaster, my clientele totally changed. I went from a mid-level, industrial market to a full high-end, broadcast and motion picture, film quality environment.” Joe uses the Video Toaster for a weekly network television series. The client was so impressed with the money saved on the first segment Joe created, that they gave him a contract for several more. “Owning a Video Toaster is like driving a Stealth bomber...ifs the most incredible experience. It produces incredibly high-end results for very little investment. The Toaster puts everything you want at your fingertips and at a price that's affordable." Joio the REVOLUTION!
