NewTek and Nova Design Announce New Product!

NewTek and Nova Design, Inc., producers of the award winning ImageFX and
Aladdin 4D packages for the Amiga, announce Millennium - a comprehensive
upgrade package for the Amiga Video Toaster  The Broadcast Studio in a Box.
NewTek and Nova Design are bringing together some of the most popular programs
of the past decade as well as introducing all new material for the Amiga Video
Toaster/Flyer. Millennium is being produced in cooperation with Nova Design, Inc.,
who is managing and coordinating with other developers.

Users of the Amiga Video Toaster/Flyer will see more power and greater flexibility in
the Flyer's tools. Millennium builds on the existing set of tools in the Flyer's
interface. Hundreds of new effects and wipes have been added. All new wipes are
professionally designed. Many wipes use live-action to produce the exciting matte
wipes the Amiga VideoToaster has been famous for. You can create your own wipes
with Wipe Studio - a new addition to the Amiga Toaster/Flyer user's toolkit. Wipe
Studio allows you to create your own effects and wipes for the Amiga Toaster/Flyer.
This easy-to-use, yet powerful standalone utility leads you through creating your
own transitions.

There is enough new content to fill several CD-ROMs! There are new fonts, and full
color backgrounds for use in Amiga ToasterCG or Amiga ToasterPaint. There are also
FlyerClips of video sequences of captured or animated scenes to use as well.
A powerful suite of tools is added to the Flyer interface, including compositing
tools, rendering tools and audio tools! Hundreds of additional ARexx commands
and more content for both Amiga Toaster and Flyer owners!

The package comes with several CD-ROMs and a full printed manual designed to be
inserted into your Amiga Toaster/Flyer manual for ease-of-use. There will also
be a VHS-NTSC videotape introduction to the Millennium package as well. You will
need to have at least version 3.1 of the Amiga Toaster software, but 4.2 will be
required to use all of the effects, and new software.

Availability of the new package has not yet been announced, but it is expected
by later this summer. The upgrade price also has not yet been determined.
