Show
Maker
The first
Complete
Desktop Video program
p until now, making
a
"Desktop
Video"
with your
Am
iga
meant
you
had
a very
crowded
desktop. You needed editing
VCR's,
single frame controller
s,
and a
lot
of
money
and
patience. It ju
st
wasn't possible
to record
a finished video
straight
from your
Amiga. You
could create
the
animation
s.
stills, sound effects,
and music
,
but
there
was
no
way to bring it
all together, and
most
importantly, to
easi
ly
synchronize
audio
and
video.
Until now ...
U
ShowMaker,
the
first
with
featm:es
like:
• Auto-
sync
of
ANJMS and music
*
• Smart
L
of ANIM
whlle playing another*
oad
• Built-in
Video
Titling for use
over
animation
• Interactive playback
This
should give you
an
idea of what
the future
holds for
your
Desktop
Video
production
s.
To
get
the full picture
(and
music
and animation
and
titling
), ask
your
Dealer
for
a demon
