Amiga Art: Learning How to Use Disney Presents: The Animtion Studio - Ink & Paint Part 3

July 26, 2022

I did it. I finished the animation. Working with this software is more challenging than I expected. It also didn’t help that my tablet was having issues with Weylus after a while. I also learn just what Frisket does, and why it’s important to Free the Frisket!

Skip to 2:23:54 if you want to see the finished animation playing. Or, since you’re on this site, you can watch it below!

Animated Topaz

I used iff2gif (https://github.com/rheit/iff2gif) to turn the IFF ANIM file I saved into the GIF you’re viewing above!

I’ll be taking a break from streaming while I focus on the next video, then I’ll pick back up with either DeluxePaint V or True Brilliance as my next Amiga art tool to explore.

Amiga Art: Learning How to Use Disney Presents: The Animtion Studio - Ink & Paint Part 1

July 12, 2022

I start cleaning up and coloring my small animation of Topaz using the Ink & Paint part of DPTAS and discover that you can hide the menu bar, and the toolbox, but not both consistently with the F10 key. I really need a real manual for this program, if anyone has a scan of one somewhere.

Amiga Art: Learning How to Use Disney Presents: The Animtion Studio - Basic Pencil Test

June 30, 2022

I stumble through learning a 30+ year old animation software on a souped up emulated Amiga 1200 and start to produce a short animation.

I use Weylus (https://github.com/H-M-H/Weylus) to cast an FS-UAE window running DP:TAS to my Galaxy Tab S7+, so I don’t have to draw with a mouse.

If someone has better documentation for the application than the docs available on the SCIENCE disks, I’d love to check them out!

What the Heck is NoFastMem?

May 15, 2022

Topaz the Rabbit digs into NoFastMem, the Amiga system utility with the rabbit-themed icon that makes it possible to play some older Amiga games. This is a remake of the original blog post with a lot more technical details and examples!

Thanks to Tyrel (@tyrelsouza), Jim K. (@ijimkoz), Colin!
