Amiga, What a Cool Computer

The Amiga Computer Platform is what Aladdin 4D was originally created for. Many say it is the computer that launched the modern gaming industry. Many of the current game developers were formed or perfected their craft on the Amiga. Affordable Desktop Video & 3D Animation software also began life on this system.

Many of these tools are still around today on Windows & OS X. LightWave 3D, Cinema 4D, Video Toaster, DiscreetFX, TrueSpace, Digital Juice to name a few. We just wanted to say thanks Amiga for making the magic happen. If your an old Amiga fan or just want to give the platform and some of it's great retro software a try the Italian company Cloanto makes an Amiga Virtual Machine that allows this.
