Intel Indeo 3.2 decoder/player/converter?????

I recently found anims in Intel Indeo 3.2 format for which I can’t
find a suitable player for my Amiga.  At least a recent version of
XAnim can… so I could view them on the university’s workstations.  
But at I wish to be able to view them on my Amiga!  (and grab some
scenes).  Is it possible?

sirrius genlock and Scala

Ok folks,

Tell me if I am wrong.

I bought a sirrius genlock complete with software for Scala and other programs.

I own (that’s not exactly the word I want, but…) ScalaMM400.

Do you think the EX supplied works with Scala?

NOT!  (well with a bit of editing it does)

The EX is for the Neptun genlock (sirrius’ little brother)

Oh no big deal, I guess.

1/ The commodity (or TSR for yo uBIM idiots) makes an arexx port called
neptun and all the scripts on the disk address the port as sirrius.

ha ha ha ha    ROTLWL

Who checked the software?

2/ If you do use the Neptun EX, dispite the lack of audio sliders, you have
the two main ones:  Video and Amiga.

One of them is reversed, or the names are reversed.

either you have to have one OFF to have it ON or the slider labled AMIGA
controls the video and the one labeled VIDEO controls the Amiga.


Well, I could be wrong if the latter case, they may of used negative logic
when labeling the sliders


You be the judge, and tell me if I am wrong.

ED, Scala, I am very dis-appointed in that effort.

SuperGen library

I dont know if this is the proper place for this, but I am looking for
supergen.library that is later than version 1.xx. I am trying to get
Scala to use the SuperGen, but it wont since the version of the
supergen.library is 1.xx. I tried Play (where Digital Creations went),
but I dont think that they would be of any help. IF you have a later
version of this library, please let me know.

Latest Scala Version

Hi, John.  I got a question for you.  If it sounds like a dumb one,
forgive me.

What’s the latest version of Scala?  The one I have is the first version,
i.e. no ability to load sound samples or modfiles with it.  I happen to
like Scala, because it’s the most easiest authoring system software I know
that’s out there.  Frankly, I’m tempted to put in back in my hard drive
system to replace InovaTronic’s CanDo (since Inova is no longer around),
but I wonder if I am better served to get the latest version so I can have
my brother’s graphics shown the same time my original music mods are

Anyway, it’s good to see a great program like Scala is still around.

Just a quickie,

Has anyone had any joy using Scala MM400 with the OpalVision utilities
Opal HotKey and Opal Presents?

Both of these support REXX control & would be ideal to use with Scala
presentations but I only get a black Opal screen if I try and control
them from within Scala even though if I load an Opal backdrop outside
of Scala it works great.

Anyone any ideas?
