AMIStore: CANDI Prefs Update & New Autumn Theme
« on: October 22, 2015, 03:57:20 PM »

Workbench CANDI Prefs utility
Updated preferences tool for Workbench CANDI with Autumn Theme added

A-EON Technology Ltd is pleased to announce an update to CANDI Prefs, the preferences utility for Workbench CANDI.  A new Autumn theme featuring falling leaves has also been added.

Workbench CANDI introduced the world of composite desktop animation to  the AmigaOS. Utilising the power of the hardware compositing engine  built into the RadeonHD drivers, CANDI totally integrates with the  AmigaOS Workbench and uses the graphics card's GPU to deliver smooth  Workbench animations without compromising hardware performance.

Whether  it's wispy clouds with a rotating Boing Ball or shimmering, silvery  bubbles gently floating upwards and over a retro Amiga Copper  background, the CANDI animation effects are simultaneously calming and  impressive.  

CANDI is fully compatible with the AmigaOS screen  dragging feature and more importantly works seamlessly with hardware  accelerated compositing video playback introduced with the RadeonHD v2.4  drivers.

The new CANDI Prefs utility enables full control of  the  dynamic CANDI  powered Workbench and incorporate the following key  features:

  • Workbench CANDI can be started from WBStartup prefs or manually from the CANDI Prefs icon.
  • Ability to choose single or multiple CANDI backdrops and automatically cycle between them.
  • A new custom static backdrops option.
  • Choose between dynamic and static CANDI backdrops and automatically cycle between them.
  • Mix dynamic CANDI animations with custom static backdrops.
  • Change the cycle/rotation time for both dynamic and static backdrops.
  • A LowCPU option for machines with less powerful CPUs.
  • Enable or disable Ringhio notifications while starting and changing an animated background.
  • Turn CANDI backdrops ON/OFF or Stop animation from the Prefs application.
 Candi Prefs and Autumn Theme are part of the Workbench CANDI package, FREE to existing users and is available from AMIStore for new users.

Recommended System requirements:
AmigaOS4.1 - Final Edition, RadeonHD v2.10 drivers, a higher specification RadeonHD gfx card

Developers: EntwickerX (Frank Menzel & Thomas Claus)
Artwork/Graphics: EntwicklerX/Kevin Saunders

"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here."
