Hi everyone, I have a favor to ask. Could a few of you please try installing Open Video Toaster and Lightrave on ApolloOS and CoffinOS and report back. Lightrave letís you run a full version of LightWAVE 3D without crashing and Open Video Toaster allows you to run the Amiga Video Toaster without the hardware. Full ASM and C source is available too if you want to play with it.

Long term It would be nice if the GUI and base code to the Amiga Video Toaster was used to make a video editing app for the Vampire.

Maybe I posted this in the wrong section of the forum? If so could someone please move?

Even mods cant do it, but AmigaOS software belongs to Workbench category :) Apollo is about common 080 arch and its software development, so one would thing OVT is already 080-mmx :)

it should easier to upgrade for the Vampire than PPC version of the OS.
Seeing the size of the V4 it could be a nice base for a setupbox, multimedia device to display info etc.

I think ASM coders might like to dig into the code. There are way more ASM programmers on the Vampire than OS 4.1 or MorphOS I believe.

I believe it would be really nice if whoever works on CoffinOS would get this installed and setup in that distribution to create more interest. In fact that also goes for ApolloOS but that might take more work to do vs CoffinOS.

Hopefully, more ASM coders review the code and do some minor updates. Great things have to start somewhere.

Someone should put it in GitHub first then those interested could work on it.

Another idea since this is hard to install and setup is that itís included in ApolloOS preinstalled and setup. Or it could even come preinstalled on that unnamable OS that Vampires sleep in.

What does the Video Toaster software do without the Video Toaster hardware?

Nice GUI for video editing, paintbox, CG and ChromaFX. If you install the free LightRAVE it will run LW3D too.
