There's quite a story behind of Amiga! Great minds stood beynd their dream of presenting to the masses a new way of interacting with the computer. They stood by it until the very end, and had quite a loyal fan base, it was really sad that after many attemptsof reviving the brand never nothing came out of it.

I was a BIG fan of Amiga Computers and startet 3D from there, with Maxon Cinema 4D 8)
I saved most of the old files on floppys, but can't read them anymore, even with an emulator. Render times didn't change much from then, with overnight scanline-renders pixel by pixel - good times. Yep, computing definetely was fun!
Does anybody remember Tornado 3D? I started with that when Maxon left for Mac and PC, since it was the only software that supported PowerPC Processors and fancy cybergraphix-cards. Yes, I am old :lol:

I went to cinema 4d because of the amiga, but on amiga itself I played with Imagine 3D, after it was released on CU Amiga I went full berzerk and got the update to the almighty Imagine 3D 4 with manual et all! :D
