Nostalgia - WOW the Amiga Days

For this that don't know the Amiga was THE computer back in the day for graphics...as I posted in a previous story, it was the launching point for the Video Toaster.  Here are a few examples of what is was able to do back then.

First, a demo reel from the same company that eventually revolutionized the Desktop video revolution..

Demo Reel 1..



Demo Reel 3..



then the Video Toaster 2.0 Demo...




Another Toaster Promo..



The computer Chronicles interview with Newtek about the Video Toaster..



One of my favorite Amiga games - Shadow of the Beast, one of the first games to feature Paralax scrolling give the illusion of depth to the background...



Here is a part 1 of a multipart history of the Amiga...



And a quick European Graphics Movie Demo with unheard of graphics/sound from a home computer..(not the best quality recording)



Check out Youtube for many many more trips down Amiga lane.....
