The Simpsons isn't on it. 2 episodes used an Amiga to animate certain portions.

One of them is the space episode. An Amiga was used to animated homer turning around eating the chips (listen to the audio commentary for proof).

Also, there's an episode, forget which season... basically a roadtrip episode so that narrows it down. A panning shot at the very end of the episode (very last few seconds) where they're driving on a bridge; That was animated using an Amiga. Again, the audio commentary is proof.

Perhaps i'll send 'em an email linking to this post.

Edit: Also, a couple of episodes of "The Finder" (aka Finders Keepers). Patrick plays Shadow Of The Beast on an A1000.

I recently saw When Strangers Appear (2001) where you can spot a 1084 monitor with a text message and a cursor blinking (not amiga specific, more like DPaint text). The KB is not Amiga, but I think they used the big fonts on screen for the shake of the movie.
Note: The NTSC version won`t look much like a 1084, please check the Pal, you may notice the power button! (I saw it on TV , so I couldn`t rewind/check twice).

TV station in cyprus, still uses an Amiga today.
Apparently no one has the slightest idea about it but it is still in use as both a character generator / animator and er, coffee cup holder!

Who knows when/if OS4. MOS or AROS will be seen in any movie/tv serie in the future...

Fantastic Four??

are you sure, because that is a movie made not so long ago.

Either way, Terminator 2, one of the best films ever, via Amiga morph effects, thats awesome.

Cheers

Concerning the "Titanic" entry stating that "Amiga and Video Toaster was used":
The newtek website only says that LightWave was used (Windows or Amiga version?).

No, it's this one: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0109770/
I'll look into getting date (year) on the movies, so there'll be less mix ups...

In Dijon, France, the cable TV station used an Amiga until 2005/2006. I often saw guru meditation in transparence in the own channel of the TV station.
