I'm not in to VideoToster is bit price for my taste, what I wont is native PPC/OS40 programs. version of ImageFX ppc native, and maybe Aladdin 4D PPC naive, my problem on the other hand is that I don't have time spend learning and designing 3D graphics, so the easy to use and learn the better,

About Millennium is it some kind of SCALA clone like Hollywood?
I be mighty interested in time limited demos.

This, along with the recent Aladdin 3D news makes me think Nova want out of the Amiga market, which would be a shame

I think Nova is trying to focus on ImageFX which is a good thing. I see the discussion about this on ANN is very constructive.
