Title: Amiga Brilliance II Promo 2020 - TIP | TUTORIALS | TRICKS
Post by: invent on November 21, 2019, 02:27:47 AM
Hello Everyone,

In 2020 I plan on creating new videos using "Brilliance II" Software.
Amiga "Brilliance II" published by Digital Creations in 1994 for the Commodore Amiga Computer.

Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/374553356 or Youtube: https://youtu.be/RUo-Fysctvg

If you would like particular tutorials on the software please list your ideas here :)

The first two tutorials will be on:

- Dithering Techniques
- Using the Stencil Tool

P.S I have considered creating a book if there is any interest.

I never get truly familiar with Brilliance the same way I am with DPaint, looking forward to watching videos.
Could you perhaps do a video about using Brilliance for animation as well?

Hi Kolla, Yes certainly will do some animations as well which will include the morphing feature, animated brushes, converting rendered or hand drawn sprites.
Thanks rednova.  We do have a few people now showing Dpaint so I will leave this for the moment, some of the tips though will translate to other pixel/animation programs on the Amiga.

I'm hoping if nothing else it will encourage people to play around with the software :)

Thanks for all the feedback, as always list what you might like to see and more importantly I hope it meets your expectations.   Probably a quick overview of the tools might me a good start.  I also hope it might encourage people to do similar videos on other great software.
