Byte-by-Byte Corp.


Ken Offer a Programmer/Artist for Byte-by-Byte created this overscan HAM animation with «Sculpt 3-D», the first 3-D modelling program for the Amiga. The demo won a close 2nd place in the «BADGE Killer Demo Contest».

The original version runs on a 512 K Amiga, had only half of the frames and was played in 'Pingpong' instead of 'Loop' mode. It was encoded in the ANIM-J format developed by Eric Graham and used the J-type animation compression. This is an adaptive algorithm that employs numerous different strategies to achieve the best compression and fastest playback.
