Chicago, Illinois – November 30th, 2007 -- Now that Amiga OS 4.0 is available for Classic Amiga, Visual FX company DiscreetFX LLC Inc., is willing to work with select members of the Amiga OS 4.0 development team to insure future compatibility with the Video Toaster 4000 card. This includes free Video Toaster 4000 cards to members of the team that have Amiga 4000/T computers running Amiga OS 4.0 and have an available video slot.

DiscreetFX's CEO stated. "It's great news that Amiga OS 4.0 is now available for Classic Amiga's with PPC cards. What would be even more exciting is if the Amiga Video Toaster 4000 also worked on OS 4.0."  The time is at hand for the Amiga to reemerge as a video editing/desktop video platform. The release of the Amiga Video Toaster source code was step one. Amiga OS 4.0 for Classic Amiga was step two. Now lets go on to step three."

I'm not an OS4 developer, but I hope to soon test OS4 on a A4000T/Toaster4000/Flyer setup.

Has it been tested with a Toaster at all in development?

I don't think that it has.

I might be convinced to donate a Flyer card to go with ONE of the Toaster 4000 cards if it will lead to the Open Toaster/Flyer software being ported to OS4 for Classic Amigas.

It would have to be for a developer that makes a commitment to follow through and complete the project, but I will gladly donate the Flyer with the agreement that if the developer abandons his work on the project that the code and the Flyer card will be returned so it can be forwarded to another developer that takes up where the first developer has stopped.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

That's great news amigadave, DiscreetFX also donated a Flyer card a few years back to a developer in Europe.
