Toasty Virtual Machines

An innovative developer found a few software workarounds to boot the Amiga Video Toaster GUI in an Amiga Virtual Machine without the Amiga Video Toaster hardware card. It's nice to finally see some progress on Open Video Toaster. Our Toaster was feeling alone and stagnant in the modern era without brilliant hobbyist coders to dig into one of the most interesting open source releases that happened early in the 21st Century. How does this relate to Aladdin4D you might ask? Aladdin4D 5.x renders directly to the Amiga Video Toasters Framebuffers and even saves 24 bit animations in the Flyers native broadcast quality video format. Not as innovative in todays world but a road down memory lane of how none-linear video editing and live switching used to be. Please visit the Open Video Toaster site and grab the binary to play with on your Amiga Virtual Machines. If you own a copy of Aladdin4D 5.x don't forget to render it retro in brilliant 24 bit color with Aladdin4D. Rub the Lamp, Render the Magic.
