Software titles mentioned / re-creation of screenshots


Further, I want to dig into all the software and games titles they showcased, sometimes with a couple of seconds with captions, other times only mentioned in the speech, but also sometimes not even mentioned by captions or spoken word.

I will to the best of my abilities and know-how produce new screenshots and links to all the software and games mentioned/visible in the entire Amiga Promo video in the order it was seen (more or less).

I also noticed during the research that even if the caption said a particular software name, often the sequences before or right after would appear to be from other software, so back then, one "could" get confused what animation or graphics actually came from the titles mentioned in speech or in caption. But, it does not matter, Amiga ruled everything no matter what anyway.

From video: VideoTitler v1.0 by Aegis.

Software and its interface is never shown and in the video I'm not sure if any of the material was available on the disks. I searched through a list of disks, but did not find any graphics or assets as used in the video.

Typically:
Aegis VideoTitler v1.0 (1987)(Aegis)(Disk 1 of 2)(Program).adf
Aegis VideoTitler v1.0 (1987)(Aegis)(Disk 2 of 2)(Data).adf
Aegis Videotitler v1.08b.adf
Aegis VideoTitler v1.1 (1988)(Aegis)(Disk 1 of 2)(Program).adf
Aegis VideoTitler v1.1 (1988)(Aegis)(Disk 2 of 2)(Data).adf
VideoTitlerDataDisk.adf



Screenshot of the actual Aegis VideoTitler v1.1 and 1 of the menus. There was only a sample script one could load, and some other graphical elements, but none of these was used or was from the video.



From video: TV*Text v1.x by Zuma Group.

Interface from the software was never shown in the video, but several samples of the graphical type fonts used instead and was probably "made on the fly".

I searched through disks, but could not find the same examples or graphics as seen in the video.

Typically:
TV Text v1.0 (1987)(Zuma Group).adf
TV Text v1.11 (1987)(Zuma Group)[h New Age].adf
tvtext.adf




Screenshot from the actual TV*Text v1.0 software where I show the only picture found on the disks "Pix/Title" and shows part of the menu system.





From video: ProVideo CG1 by JDK Images

Trivia: In the video its named "CG1" as "CG ONE", but I have also seen magazines write "CGI", with the letter I instead. So, who knows what the original title really was.

Anyway, I was unable to find ProVideo CG1, but found "Pro Video Plus" from 1988.



Screenshot of the Pro Video Plus software by JDK Images.

I simply booted the program and started typing, one could access a wealth of menu by pressing at least F1-F9 and also in combination with SHIFT key.

I was unable to find any of the samples shown in the video on the following disks I had available:
Pro Video Plus (1988)(JDK Images)(PAL)(Disk 1 of 3).adf
Pro Video Plus (1988)(JDK Images)(PAL)(Disk 2 of 3).adf
Pro Video Plus (1988)(JDK Images)(PAL)(Disk 3 of 3).adf



From video: This image was animated to indicate one could use a VHS machine and control the pause, still, forward and backwards to create videos.

Infact, that sequence in much lower resolution was found on Newtek Demo Reel #1, typically "Demo Reel (1987)(Newtek)(Disk 1 of 2).dms" and the files "z/maxine1" and "z/maxine2".



Screenshot converted from "z/maxine2.iff" into PNG. This "sprite-sheet" was used in the Demo Reel #1 by Newtek, and is the same sequence used in the video as explained in previous image.



From video: Music Mouse - An Intelligent Instrument v1.00 by David Silver & Laurie Spiegel.

There was no songs to load, only instrument and they basically just showed some kind of movement with the mouse while playing an instrument. It does support MIDI.




Screenshot of the actual Music Mouse software. I was unable to produce the same effect as in the video.

Disk loaded was:
Music Mouse v1.0 (1987)(Opcode Systems)[h Movers].adf



From video: Deluxe Music Construction Set by Electronic Arts.

In the video, they loaded "Music/Cleopha", from typically disk like:
Deluxe Music Construction Set (1986)(Electronic Arts).adf




Screenshot from actual Deluxe Music Construction Set where I loaded the same song "DF0:Music/Cleopha" into view.




From video: Instant Music by Electronic Arts.

In the video, they simply started Instant Music software, and it would load a default music from "Music/Instant Music".

Typically:
Instant Music (1986)(Electronic Arts).adf
Instant Music (1986)(Electronic Arts)[a].adf
Instant Music (1986)(Electronic Arts)[a2].adf
Instant Music (1986)(Electronic Arts)[h AleSoft].adf



Screenshot from the actual Instant Music where I simply started it, default loading "Music/Instant Music" and started playing automatically.



From video: Sonix V2.0 by Aegis.

In the video they simply started Sonix and nothing was loaded.

Typically:
SONIX_2_0_datadisk.adf
SONIX_2_0_maindisk.adf



Screenshot from the actual Sonix v2.0 software, simply started it and nothing more, just like in the video.



From video: Music Studio by Activision.

In the video they loaded the "branden.song" from root of typically "Music Studio, The (1986)(Activision).adf" disk.

Specifically named "Brandenburg Concerto 2 by Bach".



Screenshot from the actual "The Music Studio" software, where I loaded "branden.song".



From video: Music-X v1.0 by MicroIllusions.

Fun trivia #1: Music-X v1.0 was released in 1989, so how the software ended up in the video that was focusing on 1985-1988 (more or less) is quite amazing. If the video was released in 1987, it would take another 2 years almost before the software "hit the streets".

Fun trivia #2: Notice the title bar says "Music-X Song:Mars". In V1.0 of the software, it never says song, only "Perf:" and "Sequence: ", never "Song:". Further, the song or file Mars is not present on any music software diskset that I could find.

Typically:
Music-X v1.0 (1989)(MicroIllusions)(Disk 1 of 3)(Program).adf
Music-X v1.0 (1989)(MicroIllusions)(Disk 2 of 3)(Utilities).adf
Music-X v1.0 (1989)(MicroIllusions)(Disk 3 of 3)(Examples).adf



Screenshot of the actual Music-X v1.0 software, showing the "Bar Editing" screen of the software.

I was unable to replicate the exact view as in the video, probably the final V1.0 differs from the version used in the video.



From video: SoundScape Pro MIDI Studio by Mimetics Corporation

In the video, they seem to show some footage that was presented in "MIDI Music Atari ST, Apple, Amiga, Casio, Ensoniq The Computer Chronicles Oct. 3, 1986"



Screenshot of the actual SoundScape Pro MIDI Studio by Mimetics Corporation.

I loaded up the "SoundScape" disk and clicked a couple of windows to mimic the same stuff as seen in the video.

Disk used:
"Promidi v1.4.adf"



From video: This image file is called "PictureI" and came off
"Amiga Library Disk #0017 (1986)(Fred Fish)(PD)[WB].adf"



Screenshot from the actual "Digiviewer" software and one of the images in that slideshow found on "Amiga Library Disk #0017 (1986)(Fred Fish)(PD)[WB].adf"



From video: This image file is called "PictureJ" and came off
"Amiga Library Disk #0017 (1986)(Fred Fish)(PD)[WB].adf"



Screenshot from the actual "Digiviewer" software and one of the images in that slideshow found on "Amiga Library Disk #0017 (1986)(Fred Fish)(PD)[WB].adf"



From video: This image file is called "PictureA" and came off
"Amiga Library Disk #0017 (1986)(Fred Fish)(PD)[WB].adf"
