Open Video Toaster Redesign

The Open Video Toaster website has been totally redesigned. Download the source-code and play around with updating this great software suite for Amiga OS 4.x, AROS & MorphOS. Sadly the source to Amiga LightWave 3D was never allowed to be included but you have the option to buy Aladdin 4D 5.x which fully supports the Amiga Video Toaster and the Flyer.
