Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : AMIStore: new CANDI Update and Dandelion Theme
   posted by amigakit on 23-May-2017 23:57:48 (1993 reads)
Updated Workbench CANDI with Dandelion Theme added

A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce an update to Workbench CANDI, with bug fixes and a few minor changes ready for the next Enhancer Software release. A new Dandelion theme has been added featuring seeds gently blowing in the wind.

Candi Update with Dandelion Theme is FREE to customers who have previously purchased the full retail version of CANDI from AMIStore or Updater utility.

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 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.

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

The Updated version contains
CANDI 1.3 (23-Nov-2015)
CandiPrefs 1.4 ( 1-Dec-2015)

while on my hard drive I have
CANDI 1.4 ( 1-Mar-2016)
CandiPrefs 1.6 ( 1-Mar-2016)

is it safe to keep the more updated version?

Downloaded just now but in the Candi Pref I cannot see (and then choose) the new Dandelion theme. Is this normal?

Also when using pFtp at the same time AmiStore was downloading a file they both crashed.

I'm still not sure how I see this update. Is it only available if you specifically have bought CANDI? If you only have the Enhancer pack, you don't get the update?

Enhancer Software Plus customers can upgrade to Workbench CANDI Plus pack for a 75% discount in AMIStore. Discount is applied when logging in and purchasing CANDI if you have the Enhancer Software Plus on your AmiSphere account.
