software OS4   software OS4 : AMIStore: CANDI Prefs Update & New Autumn Theme
   posted by amigakit on 21-Oct-2015 19:19:41 (2840 reads)
Workbench CANDI Prefs utility
Updated preferences tool for Workbench CANDI with Autumn Theme added


A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce an update to CANDI Prefs, the preferences utility for Workbench CANDI. A new Autumn theme featuring falling leaves has also been added.

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 or Stop animation from the Prefs application.

Candi Prefs and Autumn Theme are 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

Great news...
Just a question. If I buy it today, and then enchancer package is released, which includes Candi among others, will I have to pay again for it, or I will have a discount?

@ A-Eon

What I love about Candi is every time my wife walks in to the office she stops to watch the backdrop for a few seconds and enjoys it.

Can't wait to see Winter time :P

Cheers,
Bill "tekmage" Borsari

Showing off a fancy WB backdrop, much like you'd show off a fancy red car

The new autumn backdrop is one of the best to date, very smart indeed. Nice to have regular updates of this.

Would love to see more landscape/nature scenes in future, e.g. ocean, glacier, forest, etc.

Candi Prefs fails (unfreed signals error 80000000) and for some reason my update doesn't come with the Fall theme.

Update:

This was my fault. I did not copy all of the files since they were hidden in Workbench. Another good reason to use Directory Opus :)

Was there not an installer? If there was you should have used it.

There's no installer, just extract the archive to the directory of your choice.
