  ..About:...................... .. .   .

      This little 4ktro is what we call a 12-Bit RGB Splitter.
      In fact, it separates a picture consisting of 16 grey-
      scales into its red, green and blue shares and displays
      them spread over different lines while the whole object
      moves. The number 12-bit is derived from the way pixel
      information is separated which leads to a red-layer of
      4 bit depth, a green-layer of 4 bit depth and a blue
      layer of 4 bit depth, resulting in 12-bit total colour
      information.
      Some additional remark shall be done on the picture
      size. The size of the picture being split results from
      the size-limit this effect was supposed to fulfilled,
      meaning, the picture was chosen in a way that the limit
      of 4kb in total could be reached. The effect is actually
      capable of working with a picture of 160 x 328 pixels.
            
      To see the full potential of this routine, you will
      most probably see a re-release of this effect using
      a rather large graphic.
