Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Workbench CANDI Update Released On AMIStore App Store
   posted by amigakit on 20-Dec-2014 15:59:48 (2646 reads)
A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce a new version of WB CANDI animated Workbench backdrops for AmigaOS 4.1. The new version features a special Christmas backdrop as well as a Space theme and is available now on AMIStore Amiga App Store.

What is CANDI ?
Back in January 2014 we were discussing ideas on how to use some of the extra CPU and RadeonHD power that the AmigaONE X1000 and X5000 systems provide. The idea of modernising Workbench with animated backdrops was developed and Thomas Claus, Frank Menzel and Kevin Saunders offered their services for this new project. We hope to continue expanding this exciting project and more like it in 2015 as part of A-EON Technology's ongoing commitment to investing in new Amiga software.You can view CANDI video demonstration here: apps.amistore.net/candi



Changes In This Release

- new candles in Christmas CANDI theme
- space theme star twinkles slower
- if a normal backdrop is saved, before a CANDI is started, the WBPattern Prefs will be saved and restored if CANDI is closed
- icon rendering improvements, so the CPU usage will be lower most on scenes with low motions

Where do I get it?

It can be now downloaded from the new AMIStore App Store for AmigaOS.

This update is FREE for existing CANDI users.

Special Thanks
Special notable thank you from A-EON Technology go to: Frank Menzel, Thomas Claus and Kevin Saunders

Thanks a lot for the new version ! The new candle and space themes are wonderful. Now Candi restores my WBPattern settings after quitting it which is superb ! That space theme is great for late night sessions.

Are those candles getting lower over time ?! Nice idea !

Nice update, new backdrops are great and seems to work better with LimpidClock now, no dark box now. However noticed that animations get 'stuck' under LimpidClock's display, for instance with 'Circles'. I'm guessing this is probably down to how LimpidClock does 'transparency' rather than CANDI though?

Would be nice to see a simplified default animated, e.g. with just the clouds, also a plain copper version would be nice.

Anyone tried CANDI with low end SAM HW?
(I expect RadeonHD is mandatory and perhaps 1Ghz as CPU)

It works quite nicely on my Sam460 with RadeonHD 5450. A Sam440 would probably be too slow though.
