VideoFX 2.00

The name "VideoFX" suggests that this program is meant for videos and video effects. But VideoFX is far more than this. In the beginning our aim was to create a program that could offer users a more flexible and automatic system to create videos. We wanted a program able to play animations and show images in an only environment. In other words, we wanted to create a program easy to be used. We wanted our program to be able to launch animations simply by pressing a key.

These ideas would have created a very useful program since it would have allowed the user to set up videos without getting mad with two or three animation players, stop/still operations on the video recorders, etc...

Then, step by step we have increased considerably the functions of our program. Thanks to Amiga's hardware and software systems, particularly suitable for videos, VideoFX allows obtaining much more than animation players. As a matter of fact, any Amiga machine is equipped with four audio-stereo channels and can execute more than one program at the same time, by integrating them by means of AREXX.

The fruit of our ideas and hard work is VideoFX: a program that allows controlling and managing video productions automatically and in a integrated way. Besides, VideoFX's potentialities are not restricted to video productions. VideoFX can be used for many more purposes, which you will understand after reading this manual.

The concept of VideoFX

VideoFX is based on the simple concept of event->effect. The event is something that happens; the effect is what happens (what is performed by the machine) as a consequence of the event. To give an example: if you press the light button (event) the light will go on (effect). The management of VideoFX's events and effects is very complete and allows creating complex associations between events and effects: an event may cause several effects, and an effect may be caused by several events. Going on with the example of the light switch, we can say that it is possible to create a lighting system with two light switches and three bulbs, so that the first switch switches on all the three bulbs, while the second one switches on only one bulb.

Technical Features

VideoFX is compatible with AmigaOS 2.1. (KickStart v37.175+, Workbench v38.xx) or the following ones. It requires at least 2Mb of Fast Ram and a Hard Disk. Obviously, the more memory, fast processors and AGA chipsets are used the better will be the resuls obtained from VideoFX. As most programs for Amiga, VideoFX does not require any particular processor. VideoFX can be used with AmigaOS 2.1 developed in 1991.

Note that Amiga allows his users to choose the configuration more suitable to his requirements in spite of the actual international trend to create products to induce users to buy other products.

The events manageable by VideoFX:

  • Pressing a key on the keyboard;
  • Pressing the left mouse button;
  • Pressing the right mouse button;
  • Expiring of a timer.

The effects:

  • Viewing an image (IFF-ILBM);
  • Playing an animation (IFF-ANIM5/7);
  • Playing an animation (XFA);

The formats HAM-6 (4096 colors) and HAM-8 (16 million colors) are supported for all the visual effects. VideoFX supports the custom VFX format to create effects with synchronized audio and video.
