Personal Animation Recorder (PAR Card)
Copyright 1993-95 DPS-Digital Processing Systems, Inc.

The Personal Animation Recorder (or PAR, for short) is a revolutionary tool for computer animators. Used in conjunction with your Amiga computer and animation rendering software, it eliminates the need for a single-frame videotape recorder and controller, while giving you real-time playback of full resolution (752x480, 16 million colors, 30 frames per second) animation sequences.

PAR is actually three tools in one: an animation record/playback deck, a real-time video capture deck for rotoscoping, and a still store with stunning access speed and storage efficiency. Commonly used with Newtek Video Toaster 2000/4000.

Some of the many features of the Personal Animation Recorder are:

  • Accepts animation frames directly from rendering program
  • Copies existing image files from Amiga disk drive
  • Compatible with IFF, Targa, SGI or Video Toaster Framestore files
  • Switchable filter to prevent chrominance aliasing from IFF files
  • Project organizer for image and animation files
  • Real time video capture with variable frame rate, and still grabs
    (when used with TBC-IV card, not supplied)
  • Animation editing features: join, split, duplicate, ping-pong, reverse, etc.
  • General Purpose Interface for triggered playback from edit controller
  • Variable speed playback
  • Genlockable video outputs with variable timing
