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: This animation of the Juggler is well known and it is located on a disk called "Raytracer v1.0 (1987)(Graham, Eric).adf" and one would start the animation with "movie", which loaded "movie.data" and played the exact animation.



Screenshot of the actual Juggler animation as I found on "Raytracer v1.0 (1987)(Graham, Eric).adf", where I executed "movie" which then loaded "movie.dat" and started playing (with sound).




Sreenshot I made from the introduction/loading screen prior to "Juggler" movie located on "Raytracer v1.0 (1987)(Graham, Eric).adf"



Screenshot I made of the file called "movie2" which loaded "movie2.dat" which shows an alternative Juggler animation :-)

File is located on "Raytracer v1.0 (1987)(Graham, Eric).adf".

There was also some other rendered pictures on the disk which can be started with:

"ss dragon"
"ss ele"




From video: The gorilla image is quite known for many :-)



Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Gorilla" image as used in the video.

Found in many locations, but here's one:
"Back2Roots_Compilation\cam\lha\00xx\cam-0001.lha"
in the "Lo-Res" directory named as "GORILLA".



From video: Deluxe Paint by Electronic Arts
Editing "lores/KingTut" image that appeared on
"Deluxe Paint I (1986)(Electronic Arts).adf"




Recreation of screenshot done by Stone Oakvalley using WinUAE.



From video: This is just a pre-rendered animation and does NOT come from any software :-)

This animation was found on a disk called "AFL-UntitledPack1987.adf", and the "ElGato_Anim/ElGato.anim" file.

The credits for this animation is as follows:
Created by Kevin Sullivan............Deluxe Paint II... Electronic Arts
Digi-View..........NewTek
".Anim" file produced courtesy of....Aegis/Spartafilm.

Blair-Sullivan Computer Graphics & Animation



Screenshot I made of the actual animation file called "ElGato.anim" in WinUAE.

Disk used was: "AFL-UntitledPack1987.adf" and file located in "ElGato_anim/ElGato.anim"




From video: An animation of a jet shooting a rocket. This animation was a script in Aegis Animator v1.20.

They simply loaded the script called "lockon.script" from typically disk named "Animator.dms".



Screenshot I made from the "lockon.script" from a disk named "Animator.DMS". The version of Aegis Animator was v1.20, to produce the same screenshot as seen in the video.



From video: An still image from 1987, called "Decoy". Its actually an rendered image done in SCULPT-3D.




Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Decoy" image.

It appears in my searches of 31 million files, only 1 place!
Talk about a needle in the haystack.

Found on:
"Panorama - Disk 20D (1987-08-26)(Pacific North-West Amigas Club)[WB].adf"

inside folder "Pictures/".



From video: Unknown image.



From video: Unknown image.



From video: This image is named "apple.pic" / "Chrome_Apple.pic".



Image of the exact same "apple.pic" / "Chrome Apple.pic" image as used in the video.

Probably found in a bunch of places, but here's one:
"bird.thecompany bbs\33. games & utils [dms, lha]\users\thekaracollection\pictures.lha"

and inside "tkc_pictures" directory named "Chrome_Apple.pic"



From video: "Humming Bird" ILBM/IFF still image.



Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Humming Bird" image.

It appears in my searches of 31 million files, only 1 place!
Talk about a needle in the haystack.

Found in ISO image:
"grandis.nu\cd\amigacd\compilation\accug archive c64-c128-amiga - 1997 - amiga-pc.bin"

Inside directory and LHA archive:
"archive\amiga_archive\pictures\animals.lha"



From video: Image is called "SexyRobot".

Note: Possibly the background was added just for the video, as all traces of the original shows only with a single colored background, see picture to the right.



Converted from .iff to .png of the more or less same "SexyRobot" image as used in the video. Allthough this one has only a single color background color as all the other places I found it.

Found in many locations, but here's one:
"gigantic_collection_9_dvd\amiga - demos - slideshows\17-bit artwork 2 (1988-04)(17-bit software).adf"

named as "SexyRobot".



From video: Digi-Paint by Newtek
Editing "Lady" from "Pictures.400" folder (after some paintbrush was applied, image is originally greyscale) image appeared on
"Digi-Paint (1987)(NewTek)[cr BS1 - TKT].adf"





Recreation of screenshot done by Stone Oakvalley using WinUAE.



From video: An image loaded into Digi-Paint.

The actual image file is not located on Digi-Paint disks, but rather loaded from "Demo Reel (1987)(Newtek)(Disk 2 of 2).dms" and the file called "bwlady.16" (black and white photo) before they randomly started painting on it.




Screenshot of the converted IFF image to JPG for my research that shows the same image as the video.

File was converted from "Demo Reel (1987)(Newtek)(Disk 2 of 2).dms" and the file called "bwlady.16".





From video: This was just one of the random images they showed, in fact it was loaded from "Demo Reel (1987)(Newtek)(Disk 2 of 2).dms" and the file called "newteks".




Screenshot of converted IFF to JPG file. This file was the same as shown in the video, and was located on "Demo Reel (1987)(Newtek)(Disk 2 of 2).dms" and the file "newteks".



From video: Image shown is called "Hawk.pic".



Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Hawk.pic" image.

Found on:
"jaxx21_collection\dms-lha\dms-lha_15_-_bbs_-_2002_-_amiga\utilities02\dpaint4help04.adf"




From video: A scan of an painting called "Skiffs on the Yerres"
Painting by Gustave Caillebotte.



Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Skiffs on the Yerres" image.

Found in for example:
"back2roots_compilation\cam\lha\00xx\cam-0012.lha"
as file "Sculls_Caillebotte"




From video: A scan of an painting called "Paris Street; Rainy Day"
Painting by Gustave Caillebotte.



Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Paris Street; Rainy Day" image.

Found in for example:
"back2roots_compilation\cam\lha\00xx\cam-0012.lha"
as file "ParisSt"




From video: A randomly selected still image where used several places throughout the video, this particular one is called "Checker" and was created by David B. Wecker.




Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Checker" image created by David B. Wecker in 1986.

It appears on many Amiga PD disks, but most precisely from the actual software that rendered it:
"DBW Render (1987)(Wecker, David)[WB].adf"



From video: A randomly selected still image where used several places throughout the video, this particular one is called "Glass" and was created by David B. Wecker.




Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Glass" image created by David B. Wecker in 1986.

It appears on many Amiga PD disks, but most precisely from the actual software that rendered it:
"DBW Render (1987)(Wecker, David)[WB].adf"



From video: Easyl by Anakin Research

The promo video does not really show the software of Easyl, but rather its hardware (drawing / digitizing tablet and interface + stylus pen apparantly).



Screenshot by Stone Oakvalley of the actual Easyl software.



From video: During the Easyl sequence there was an image of a rainbow hot air ballon.

This file I found traces of from "Demo Reel (1987)(Newtek)(Disk 2 of 2).dms" and "4PIC1" image (one of 4 on that file).



Converted from IFF image converted to PNG of the same exact Ballon picture used in the video.

This particular file was located on "TOSEC\Update 20140731\Commodore Amiga - Collections - Auge 4000 (20140714_CM)\Auge 4000 #01 (1987)(Amiga User Gruppe Einzugsgebiet 4000).adf"

inside directory "Bilder/Ballon".



From video: A still image called "Sugar.iff".



Converted from "Sugar.iff" to PNG, the same image as used in the video.

This particular image was on many PD disks, but one of them was
"Amiga Library Disk #0072 (1987)(Fred Fish)(PD)[h CTACS][WB].adf" inside the "HAM" directory.




From video: Digi-View v3.0 by Newtek
In the movie, there is basically no screenshot of the actual software, but rather images viewed with Digi-View.



Screenshot by Stone Oakvalley of the introduction screen of Digi-View, after this the screen goes blank with only mouse pointer when running in WinUAE.



From video: An recreation of an painting called "Girl with a Pearl Earring" by Johannes Vermeer.

I do believe this in not an scan, but an actual repaint done on Deluxe Paint, possible rotoscoping involved.



Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "VermeerGirl" image.

Found in:
"Graphicraft v1.1 (1985)(Commodore)[WB].adf"
inside the directory called "Bilder", as "VermeerGirl".



From video: Algerian Iris image.



Converted from IFF to PNG, the same image as used in the video.

Found in:
"Deluxe Paint II (1986)(Electronic Arts)(Disk 2 of 2)(Art).adf"
inside the "Lo-Res/Potpourri" directory, named "Iris"



From video: This image is called "KingTut" and is quite known by many as a famous Deluxe Paint I image, located on typically "Deluxe Paint (1985)(Electronic Arts).adf"



Converted from iff to png, the same "KingTut.iff" image as seen in the video.



From video: Sculpt 3-D by Eric Graham
This image from the movie is only available on the disk image as "excalibur.image" without any ".scene" file for some reason?!

Found on:
"Sculpt 3D v1.100.adf"



Excalibur.image converted from .iff to .png by Stone Oakvalley.



From video: Sculpt 3-D by Eric Graham
There are several rendered images presented, this rocking chair is only 1 of them. The actual software is never seen, just what it produces.

This particular 3D model and its rendered image are found in
"1Meg/rocker.scene" on typically disk images
Sculpt 3D v1.100.adf



Screenshot by Stone Oakvalley running Sculpt 3-D actual software with the "rocker.scene" loaded and rendered at least tried in "Snapshot" mode only.



From video: Draw Plus v2.0 by Aegis

There are several drawings loaded and shown in the movie, this particular one is called "SR71 Complete".

Trivia:
The file is located in "Drawings/SR71" (only lower half of the drawings) and "Drawings/SR71 Complete" appear on typically "AEGIS draw pro plus v2.0.adf" released in 1988.

but does not appear on the non-pro version, such as:
"Aegis DRAW Plus v2.0 (1985)(Aegis).adf"

Since the movie was most likely made in 1987, the appearance of models in the video is actually not from "Draw Plus", but rather the "Draw Pro (plus)" version that came out later, or even the "DRAW 2000" also by Aegis many years later.




Screenshot by Stone Oakvalley 2020 running Draw Plus and loaded "Drawings/SR71", which only shows half of the drawing.

For some reason the "Drawings/SR71 Complete" did not load and seems to be of the wrong fileformat. Actually, the file "SR71" was not found on any Draw Plus v2.0 I had and therefore had to load it from the "Draw Plus Pro" version (from 1988) instead in order to create the screenshot and test the software.



From video: Draw Plus v2.0 by Aegis.

This particular drawing is called "Drawings/stealth", and was found NOT on the Draw Plus disks, but rather "Aegis Draw Pro".




Screenshot made of "Drawings/stealth" on Aegis Draw Pro Plus by Stone Oakvalley



From video: PCLO -- Amiga/CAD by SoftCircuits

The software is shown only briefly and is not mentioned or captioned during the sequence.

The actual file they loaded in the movie was "BoardLib/CMJ-IFf" located on typically "PCLO Amiga CAD v3.0r (1985)(SoftCircuits).adf"






Screenshot of the actual "PCLO -- Amiga/CAD" software and "BoardLib/CMJ-IF" loaded, done by Stone Oakvalley.




From video: DynamicCad by MicroIllusions.

I was unable to find this particular file on the disks I had available,
DynamicCAD Rev 2.1 (1986)(Drafting Dynamics)(Disk 1 of 2).adf
DynamicCAD Rev 2.1 (1986)(Drafting Dynamics)(Disk 2 of 2).adf



Screenshot from actual "DynamicCad" software, I did not find the same drawing as used in the video, but something close to it at least. Drawing loaded was "Samples/mech".

I'm note sure if I have the same version as they used, and I was also unable to match the background color they used.



From video: DynamicCad by MicroIllusions.

File loaded and shown in video was "DF1:Samples/arich"
from typically:
DynamicCAD Rev 2.1 (1986)(Drafting Dynamics)(Disk 1 of 2).adf
DynamicCAD Rev 2.1 (1986)(Drafting Dynamics)(Disk 2 of 2).adf



Screenshot made from actual "DynamicCad" software, where I loaded "Samples/arich" and zoomed up to match that of the video.

I'm note sure if I have the same version as they used, and I was also unable to match the background color, there seems to be missing some text also in the "arich" file compared to the video.




From video: LogicWorks (TM) v1.1 by Capilano Computing.

In the very short clip in the video, they loaded the "Demo Circuit" file from disk and it just played by itself.

Fun trivia: Software is never mentioned in speech or got any caption so how could we all know what software they showcased ? :-)




Screenshot from actual LogicWorks (TM) v1.1 software.

File loaded was "Demo Circuit" from typically "LogicWorks v1.1 (1987)(Capilano Computing)[cr TKT].adf"

I found this by accident by searching for "Analyze!" software and came over a combo disk that had "Logic" on it. And voila, it was found by random accident. This disk was named "Logix works v0.9.adf"




From video: Animator v1.10 by Aegis.

Script loaded and shown was "knight.script" from typically:
Aegis Animator v1.10 (1986)(Aegis).adf

Software is never seen, just the animations it produces and used several places in the movie.



Screenshot from "Animator" software, where I loaded the "knight.script" script and also shows the menu from the actual software.




From video: An raytraced animation called "kahnankas" created by Ken Offer.

Found on "upd-anim-classic-0060.adf"



Screenshot of the actual "kahnankas" video found on "upd-anim-classic-0060.adf".



From Video: VideoScape 3D from Aegis.

File loaded was "geo/city" with an unknown motion path (not found on any disks, so probably cooked up randomly for the video only).

Typically:
Aegis VideoScape 3D v1.0 (1987)(Aegis).adf
Aegis Videoscape 3D v2.01 (1987)(Aegis)(Disk 1 of 3).adf
Aegis Videoscape 3D v2.01 (1987)(Aegis)(Disk 2 of 3)[objects].adf
Aegis Videoscape 3D v2.01 (1987)(Aegis)(Disk 3 of 3)[pictures].adf
VideoScape-Disk1_cu44.DMS
VideoScape-Disk2_cu44.DMS




Screenshot from the actual Aegis VideoScape 3D software where I loaded the file "geo/city" and somewhat tried to manipulate the views, zoom etc. to regenerate at least a still shot of the same as the video.




From video: The famous Red Lotus from Aegis VideoScape 3D.

File loaded in their video was "geo/RedLotus" then rotated as an animation. I could not find the actual motion file.




Screenshot from the actual Aegis VideoScape 3D where I loaded the "geo/RedLotus" and mainpulated sky, ground and views to match that of the video :-)



From video: Aegis VideoScape 3D with the "geo/redlotus" loaded and viewed/animated as wireframe.



Screenshot I made with the same "geo/RedLotus" model angled and viewed in wireframe to match that of the video.




Screenshot from the GUI interface of Aegis VideoScape 3D. This was never shown in the video, so I produced one :-)



Screenshot from the actual Aegis VideoScape 3D software and a GUI popup that can occur on demand during the 3d viewing.



From video: Aegis VideoScape 3D with 2 or 3 instances of "geo/FractalCanyon" model loaded, where they also most likely loaded in "geo/City" to produce this breathtaking fly through sequence.

Additionally, they probably loaded "geo/GreenHill", "geo/MountainRing" and other models.



Screenshot I made from Aegis VideoScape 3D with just 1 instance of "geo/FractalCanyon" loaded to try an mimic at least the view as seen in the video.

I did not bother to load either the "geo/City" or the "geo/RedLotus" in this screenshot, but you get the idea.



From video: Aegis VideoScape 3D sequence with at least the "geo/City" loaded including the "geo/InfLoopShip" model creating again a breathtaking high-speed action sequence of the ship flying past camera towards the town in distance.



Screenshot from actual Aegis VideoScape 3D software where I loaded the "geo/InfLoopShip" and angled it kind-of like in the movie, mine is much closer just so we can see the details of this nice model :-)



From video: Again showing off skills of Aegis VideoScape 3D, with several models loaded, "geo/RedLotus", "geo/Runaway", "geo/city" and so fourth.

All models are found on the VideoScape 3D disks (1,2 or 3 disk sets).



From video: Aegis VideoScape 3D in action again, this time they loaded the "geo/OpenBoing" and animated some random stuff, looked very impressive back then.



From video: Deluxe Video from Electronic Arts.

I don't know what "video" they have loaded here, as this artwork presented or any of the Deluxe Video captures never shows the actual GUI of the program, nor did I find these videos in any of the Deluxe Video 1.x or Deluxe Video 3.x disks.

Typically:
Deluxe Video v1.0 (1986)(Electronic Arts)(Disk 1 of 3)[v Byte Bandit].adf
Deluxe Video v1.0 (1986)(Electronic Arts)(Disk 2 of 3).adf
Deluxe Video v1.0 (1986)(Electronic Arts)(Disk 3 of 3)[v Byte Bandit].adf



Screenshot made from Deluxe Video and a video loaded from
"Deluxe Video Advanced Users Videos (19xx)(-)[h Defjam].adf", located inside the "Videos/Frame Grabber" example file.

Here you can see at least 1 face that was used in the original Deluxe Video caption from the video.



Screenshot made from a file found on GraphicCraft v1.1 by Commodore on a disk called "graphicraft v1.1 (1985)(commodore)[v byte bandit][wb].adf"

The file in question was "Champagne". As we can see this is part of the assets they used to compile that picture above, allthough in different color scheme, but for sure the same graphics base and we can only see tiny differences.




Screenshot of the actual Deluxe Video v1.0 software, this was never shown in the video.



From video: Unknown script or movie.

Its not from any Aegis Animator disk that I am aware of.



From video: Unknown script or movie.




From video: Unknown script or movie.




From video: Unknown script or movie.




From video: An color cycling image called "Venus".



Converted from .iff to .png of the exact same "Venus" image.


Found on:
"deluxe paint i (1986)(electronic arts).adf"



From video: Unknown Animation and source



From video: Unknown source
