Amiga with Video Toaster was Used in lots of productions

The incredible machine from 1985 is simply more than meets the eye. Most of Europeans and the world knows about Amiga 500. But in the USA, Amiga was always a big-box computer that competed directly with Macs and PCs at a business level.

  • Babylon 5 is the most known tv-series that got all of the 3D scenes created with an Amiga
  • Backgrounds for The Little Mermaid created on Amigas too
  • All pre-production for Jurassic Park was done with Amiga and Toaster

The Video Toaster changed the way movies, series and tv productions were made. It was the most affordable equipment for anyone serious about film production.

For less than five thousand dollars, anyone could create programs that looked as good as the networks. One of the earliest and most enthusiastic Toaster adopters was rock bands that needed to make exciting videos for MTV on a budget. Rocker Todd Rundgren got especially motivated and connected 10 Toasters together to render his revolutionary music video for the song “Change Myself.” Effects that we consider “cheesy” today, like star wipes, only became that way because the Toaster made them commonplace. Just as the Macintosh led to a brief period of font abuse in the 1980s, the Toaster made possible a time of wild transitions and fades in the 1990s. The concept of “Wayne’s World” was very much a Toaster-based phenomenon. – ArsTechnica

Actually anyone with a genlock for their Amiga and a Genlock allowed people to create interesting video productions. Putting text or animations on videos using Amiga was one of the strongest areas where Amiga won lots of dedication and respect.

I even used an Amiga 3000 at Hardanger Folkehøgskole which was connected to a Sony Video recording system. I learned a lot about video editing there at a time just before digital video editing took over. The video editing was something that Amiga could do at a affordable pricing. Either professional or at any amateur level.

Now with Christian Simpson discovery shown on his YouTube clip here. All of the rumors such as this one at from 2002 is a reality. Yes, Amiga 4000 was used in the production of Titanic. This is the World’s most seen movie of the all-time and that’s something to be proud of.
