If you can prove ownership of your competing 3D animation package we will offer you a very generous upgrade path to Aladdin 4D 5.0. It does not matter if you own old versions of Tornado 3D, Sculpt Animate 4D, TurboSilver, Imagine, Lightwave, VideoScape 3D, VistaPro, Cinema4D, WildFire 7 or even Sculpt 3D. It does not matter if the company that made your 3D software went out of business or no longer supports the Amiga version of their software. If you can prove you own it we will give you a discount. Why not upgrade to the only commercial 3D animation package still supported on AmigaOS and being upgraded for Amiga OS 4.x, MorphOS 2.x and AROS?

Aspire in 4D!

Chicago, Illinois – November 2nd, 2009 (Offer Cancelled)

For Immediate Release

DiscreetFX & Acer are teaming up to bring you special pricing on Aladdin 4D. Purchase a dual booting Aspire One netbook between now and November 30th, 2009 and receive a discount on Aladdin 4D 5.0. The Aspire One running Google's Android OS is the first netbook that boots Android by default in 14 seconds. While this bootup is not as fast as Amiga OS 4.1 or MorphOS it is still an impressive feat. Customers have almost immediate access to Firefox, their e-mail and most other internet functions. Applications can also be purchased from the Android Store. Almost 10,000 applications are already available. Windows XP is also included and can be switched to with one click in Android. With this version of the Aspire One, XP becomes a guest operating system.

Just as owning a true IBM PC was no longer required in the 1990's since compatibility was achieved from clone makers such as DELL, Acer, Gateway, etc. Now Windows compatibility can be achieved by dual booting or even just running a Virtual Machine (VMWare) or the Windows API (CrossOver/Wine). DiscreetFX wishes to encourage this and thus is doing a special promotion with Acer. Only customers buying the Aspire One that runs Android will be eligible for a discount. After you purchase the netbook from your favorite retailer such as Amazon, send us a copy of your receipt and we will send you a Paypal invoice for a discounted price on Aladdin 4D 5.0. After you pay this invoice you will receive an e-mail with a link to download Aladdin 4D instantly with PDF manual.

You will also get a included upgrade coupon for a discount to the upcoming Aladdin 4D 6.0 on the platform of your choice. Sadly we are no longer offering free upgrades to 6.0. Aladdin 4D is a perfect 3D animation package for beginners or someone just getting started in animation software. Aladdin 4D renders almost instantly on the Acer Aspire One. Since Android is a version of Linux we are exploring adding support for it with the Linux version of Aladdin 4D 6.0. In order to run Aladdin 4D 5.0 with your Aspire One you will need to own a copy of Amiga Forever 2009 or WinUAE. If you don't already own this fantastic virtual machine please purchase via the link below. Since you will be running AmigaOS on your Aspire One we recommend buying the ruby red model. The Aspire One comes in black, blue and ruby red.

Acer stated the majority of Acer netbooks will offer Android in the future, Acer believes Android “will contribute significantly to the worldwide netbook market growth.”

The Lost Decade


Daniel Lyons wrote an interesting article for Newsweek that talks about why Microsoft has been in trouble since Bill Gates stepped down and why the company has lost it's way for the last ten years. We consider Windows to be yesterday's tech and yes that includes Windows 7. Not only do we not sell Aladdin 4D for Windows, that version will be included for free when you buy the application for other platforms. This gesture is only to support customers and we consider the Windows version to be our lowest priority.
