What was the name of THAT painting program?

Hi Everyone.

I'm a professional video game artist, and had developed my skills on an Amiga using delux paint and then Brilliance.

For a short while I owned a painting program with a very cool and unique feature that would let the artist use the copper to manually change the first 16 color indexes per scanline!

Does anyone remember which program that was?
I really have need for it now.

thanks

Photon paint, Brilliance and Deluxe paint IV all had this feature. Photon paint was quite unique, maybe this is what you remember?

Hi Gnu,

thanks, but I don't think this is what I'm after. I mean working in indexed color mode, NOT HAM, and theres a special feature that alows the artist to designate a horizontal line which represents a copper palette changem then set the palette for that vertical portion of the screen. (below that line.)

I think the programns you're talking about just all support ham varients but do it all automatically...(not allowing for manual palette changes per scanline)

Am I mistaken?

thanks

Yes. I believe you are right. I don't recall having direct control of the pallete per scanline... You have me curious.

I forgot about Digipaint III. That definately fits your description better.

Yes I believe you're right. I'm just throwing out ideas ;)
Here's some more. Adpro or perhaps ImageFX?
I don't think Personal Paint or TVpaint had that feature. I guess we'll eliminate those two from the list

There were far too many back then, weren't there? Express Paint, Butcher, Aegis Image, to add to the list of possibilities.

Thanks guys. I'm still looking and will report back if I find it... It seems like I'm going to have to download and try every painting program that ever existed for the Amiga. :( a VERY big list indeed.

@Thread

Just to bring this thread up to par with the one on Amiga.org, the screenmode was called SHAM (Sliced HAM). It was a conventional bitmap with a copper list stored alongside the bitplanes.

Remember to check out Graphics Studio. That was an excellent prog. If remember correctly it did 4096 colours in 640x 480 on an a2000 without a graphics card. I now it at least displayed copper grphics and you may have been able to draw them too. But it's a few years ago and when I put a graphics card in the a2000 the program wouldn't work any more. Got the program free on a cover disk from a magazine.
I may have a copy on cd around here somewhere.

That sounds like what HolyMonkey is looking for! 640x400 doesn't work in regular HAM mode on an A2000 so it must be a copper-list with the graphics.

I'll make sure he checks up on this thread in a timely fashion as well.

-edit-
Update. There was a review of it in AUI in May of 1988 according to Amiga Magazine Rack. They don't have scans of the review though.

Hi Renoir,

Thanks so much for posting... unfortunately the only version of Graphics studio I can find online is version 1.0 with no instructions or manual.

I've played with it a lot and can't find ANY features for getting more than 32 colors.

I'd be forever grateful if you could find the program you're talking about to help verify what its called and what it's features are for copper.

thanks again.

And that you too Samurai_Crow
