software OS4   software OS4 : Workbench CANDI Prefs utility released on AMIStore
   posted by amigakit on 15-Jul-2015 17:01:00 (3632 reads)
Workbench CANDI Prefs utility
A new preferences tool for Workbench CANDI


Cardiff 14th July 2015
A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to introduce CANDI Prefs, a new simple but powerful preferences utility for Workbench CANDI.

Workbench CANDI introduced the world of composite desktop animation to the AmigaOS. Utilising the power of the hardware compositing engine built into the RadeonHD drivers, CANDI totally integrates with the AmigaOS Workbench and uses the graphics card's GPU to deliver smooth Workbench animations without compromising hardware performance.

Whether it's wispy clouds with a rotating Boing Ball or shimmering, silvery bubbles gently floating upwards and over a retro Amiga Copper background, the CANDI animation effects are simultaneously calming and impressive.

CANDI is fully compatible with the AmigaOS screen dragging feature and more importantly works seamlessly with hardware accelerated compositing video playback introduced with the RadeonHD v2.4 drivers.

The new CANDI Prefs utility enables full control of the dynamic CANDI powered Workbench and incorporate the following key features:-

* Workbench CANDI can be started from WBStartup prefs or manually from the CANDI Prefs icon.
* Ability to choose single or multiple CANDI backdrops and automatically cycle between them.
* A new custom static backdrops option.
* Choose between dynamic and static CANDI backdrops and automatically cycle between them.
* Mix dynamic CANDI animations with custom static backdrops.
* Change the cycle/rotation time for both dynamic and static backdrops.
* A LowCPU option for machines with less powerful CPUs.
* Enable or disable Ringhio notifications while starting and changing an animated background.
* Turn CANDI backdrops ON/OFF.

Candi Prefs is now part of the Workbench CANDI package, FREE to existing users and is available from AMIStore for new users.

Recommended System requirements :
AmigaOS4.1 - Final Edition, RadeonHD v2.10 drivers, a higher specification RadeonHD gfx card

nice.

I wish CANDY was a new GFX interface for Amiga.

Start with efficient 2D programming & effects using virtual assembler commands.

Add Object oriented design
Add DOM/COM interface
Add copper effects
Add smooth low cpu scrolling of giant maps
Add collision detection
Add interactive controls
Add networking
Add Online scoreboards
Add Ingame monetization
Add GUI support
Add Script control & playback control
Add export to other script languages
Add Plugin support

We could have a fast efficient Programming language Like OO Amos/LUA/Javascript

Best CANDI update to date. The Prefs tool and backdrop changer option is a welcome edition, the fade as the backdrop changes is a nice touch. It would be nice to have an editable list of custom backdrops shown below the file selector so images could be added/removed without starting again.

Nice icons BTW and is that a new Workbench theme I spy in the screenshot? Also, in the dock noticed 'Panorama'?
