This video was originally produced in English language, but I assume it was translated by the many international Commodore company around Europe too. Since I'm Norwegian, I will focus on the Norwegian version of it and take the video apart.
As far as I can tell, the movie was produced in 1987, in which software that was already produced in 1985-1987 could take part in the presentation, but also naturally 1988-1989 titles in the form of previews.
I must have watched this video probably several hundred times back in the 80's and 90's. I watched it the first time on my VHS player when I was 15 years old (1989) and did many pause-still on the VHS tape to just glare and wonder at the amazing graphics.
Fast forward, and it was only about 10 years ago or so I found the English version of it on Youtube. Some time later, I managed to find even the Norwegian version of it and was forever happy and thrilled. My original VHS copy was eventually taped over and its bubble type cover dissappeared and lost forever. Don't worry, I have also managed to re-produce that physically with the cover and all artwork/text fully. Results will be presented here (meaning printable A4 cover art for a bubble type VHS cover!).
So, I downloaded both the English version and Norwegian version of the video, then used the Norwegian audio (that had low quality video) and combined with the English version (much better quality and capture) and merged these two into a much better Norwegian version.
Additionally, I performed some compression, cleanup etc. on the audio itself, but also cleaned up the video a little bit to produce the best looking Norwegian version out there.
The ad-video was divided into 5 major parts, where they grouped together business, multimedia, music, education and games. Of course, a perfect example of everything you could ever do with an Amiga in the mid-80's and all the way up to 2020 and for the next 100 years to come. Really!

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.
