Anyone using Mediapoint?

Is anyone out there using the new Mediapoint software?  It’s supposed to be
better than Scala and doesn’t require that annoying dongle.  I just want to
know what the real word on its performance is.

IV24-2 + MyLad Question

I am new to amigaville with a 3000 and IV24-2 board and a lot of software
most of which is 2-4 years old.  I also have the GVP video interface
unit RGB splitter.  I am trying to get MyLad, a software package of
wipes to connect video from two sources through the IV board and the
splitter.  My video source run into the CVS1 and CVS2 jacks in the VIU and for
some reason the RGB source as switched at the IV24 video interface panel
(whether thru CVS1 or CVS2) doen’t lock, but floats across my VGA monitor and
ross my output monitor.  The wipes work fine. One picture, the sync
sourc is alwas

Does anyone know what the problem is?  The IV24 board has a genlock.
Do I need another?

All helpful comments appreciated,

Re: Sound problem in Amig

->      "The Amiga is to computers as Harley Davidson is to motorcycles.

As in "technologically inferior and overpriced??"  Amiga certainly
doesn’t have the yuppie appeal that Harleys do, or CBM would still be in
business and Apple wouldn’t.

I’m not following you Derf, help me out here. And just whose side are
you on, anyway? <g>

Our company was using MediaPoint but we found it to be slower than Scala
MM300. It also took longer to develop multimedia applications.

I think Scala MM300 is 1 generation above the current version of MediaPoint
but MP does have potential. Maybe the next release will be improved.

AMIGA and .avi files.

I was wondering whether the AMIGA has any was of playing back PC .AVI
files?  Is there something that will convert the video? audio?  both?
I’m using an A3000 if that makes any difference.  I’ve seen converters
for MPEG, DLs and FLIs, but nothing for AVIs.  Help!  Thanks,

Nick Murray
