   posted by DiscreetFX on 31-Dec-2003 5:01:53 (1918 reads)
Chicago, Illinois -- Dec 30, 2003 -- DiscreetFX LLC Inc., Real-time Broadcast Quality Visual Effects developer for the Amiga/Video Toaster Flyer and MorphOS, releases the Amiga/Video Toaster 4000/Flyer/MorphOS version of Spontaneous Combustion.

DiscreetFX Releases Spontaneous Combustion; Amiga/Video Toaster 4000/Flyer & MorphOS version. A New Real-Time Fire, Smoke & Explosion Effects Library and Digital Video Effects (DVE) collection. Information about Spontaneous Combustion:

Spontaneous Combustion is selling for $129.95 but is available for the special price of $49.95 only till the end of 2003. Thats right we are still going to honor the PreOrder price even though it is now shipping but you have to hurry if your interested since this offer is only good until midnight December 31st 2003. We are even crazy enough to include Free Shipping. As many of you know Andy Panagouleas was hurt badly in August 2003. He has been stuck home these many months recovering and unable to go back to school. Andy asked to help with the development of this version of Spontaneous Combustion since he is a big Amiga and Video Toaster owner/fan. Andy's hard work helped get the product done in time for 2003 and he receives a % of all sales.

Spontaneous Combustion: The unofficial sequel to the Amiga/Video Toaster Flyer version of Pyromania from Bill Panagouleas and Andy Panagouleas. In development for over two years Spontaneous Combustion gives you much more than just fire, explosion and smoke effects. Rendered on Silicon Graphics O2 and Octane systems @ 4000 X 4000 resolution and quadra down sampled to full overscan uncompressed D1 video (720 X 486), you won't have to sacrifice quality. More frames, more depth, more realism. Over 40 unique Real-time effects, many never before seen for any video editing system including Sexy Smoke, Ultimate Explosion, Big Shooting Star, Car Crash, Flame Columns, Streaking Comet, TNT, Detonate, Phlogiston and Apocalypse.

Amiga/Video Toaster 4000/Flyer & MorphOS version includes.

1. Forty Real-time Broadcast Quality Fire Effects in Amiga Video Toaster 4000 DVE format.

2. Forty animated Video Toaster Flyer clip files that can be used for advanced Compositing with the Video Toaster Flyer, Lightwave ToasterPaint 4.0 or Aura.

Hey, Nice one Bill. Thanks to Andy too.

We need to hear software announcements like this, Makes our platform all the more interesting to other coders.

I haven't got a Toaster, Well, I have ... Wrong kind though. I do hope enough sales are generated to make it worthwhile !!
