best tool ever!

Warning, this tool was(is?) a commercial tool, made by demomakers yes, but not freeware.
It exists some different versions, i know v1.1 and v2.0 wich have some new features. Special vector editors and extra disk exists as 3rd party disks.

It is a cool tool but it crash quickly, i used it lots of time!

Zone: they are not supporting amiga for ages now, they are not selling it nor any amiga software.
Btw... mea culpa... I forgot to include TCC as 2nd group.

How dare you compare something like this to true (albeit a tad pragmatic and naturally flawed) effort, you blind prick.

I remember using this one for hours... I never understood how to completely use it because my low level of english when I was 10, but it was so fun, I suppose it was my first approach to the demoscene world. I loved the 3d objects with blobs...

The File linked above seems to contain some DataBecker product called "Demo Mania" or "Demo Maniac" by some group calling themselves "Black Legend".
Anyway... RSI Demomaker rules...

jfanque: you are right. i just checked it. TRSI demomaker is crap. but the link points to Demomaniac, which is much more advanced, made by argon and crash of polka brothers.

just for the record, after chaos' comment i hacked together an adf containing the actual rsi demomaker, so the link is more or less correct. (if someone provided me with an original disk image, it would be even more correct.)

I have never tried it out but the idea of the demotool shows how far ahead of its time RSI was.

Hooray! This is where all the new hardcore stuff came from ... many, many legendary coders resourced and used these routines incl. Azatoth, Celebrandil, Chaos, Hannibal, Laxity, The Spy, etc. ... right? :-)

anybody thumping this classic hystorical piece of amiga software down, should be hung, drawn and quarted... it doesnt matter if this good, bad or a demomaker, its history,... just like protracker or dpaint.

My "first steps" in the demoscene, not counting a few BASIC demos for the C64. :-) I thought it was amazing when I was 10.

Even as a little kid, I remember thinking: "Hang on... if you make something with this, then by definition, it's not a demo, is it?"

Of course, I still made crappy 'demos' with scrolltexts and vectorballs with it anyway -- it might not have produced good results but it was fun to play with on a dull Sunday afternoon :)

Crappy code in the "tool" itself and also in the "demos" it produced.

I was a local lamer at the time making stuff with it. Fun for a night or two.
I also heard about some tv-station making scrolltexts with this for years.

The only good product ever from Data Becker. ;o)

The only good Data Becker product was Amiga Intern!

A good concept. Why not. It was up to you what you were supposed to do with it.
And, of course, haters gonna hate. Also those who had a small idea about design and coding something really nice and good-looking.

Yep, best demo tool ever! I created lotsa demos with in in early 90s with friends! We even made a competition who will create the best demo in demomaker, nice stories to tell there. Great 90s Amiga times! Data Beckers Demomaker by Red Sector, oh yeah! Rulez of course! :)

Why? For the money? I would have liked it more if Delta had put his energy into another demo. Anyway, nice toy for those who were needy with respect to their coding skills. If I remember correctly, the handling of the program was straight-forward, but it would have been a big plus if one had had the option to use own Gfxs for the effects; or was that possible?
Moreover, I remember that Delta mentioned and thanked Promax for a trick that allowed him to allocate some extra memory. What did Delta mean by that and what is that for trick? And Stingray (2015-03-08), what do you mean by "crappy code"?
added on the 2020-12-21 16:49:26 by ROG_VF ROG_VF
@ROG_VF: If I remember correctly its was possible to load you own GFX into the demomaker.
added on the 2020-12-21 17:31:24 by gaspode gaspode
@gaspode (2020-12-21): Okey-dokey. Thanks for the hint. And keep up your nice work!

What a great product this is! I always loved the demoscene and this tool made it possible for me to create some kind of 'demo' in summer 2020 for my friends(who don't have much knowledge of demoscene in general ;-) )
It was a hell of a job however to use such ancient UI and be able to import graphics in right format to use ;-) I used emulator on PC to create it, but of course the end products run on my real AMIGA!!
Curious? Here's a not-so-great video-capture, but texts are in dutch ;-) https://youtu.be/uC8ob-sxEu8
Great shoutout to Red Sector inc. to make a dream come true ;-)

@ROG_VF: YES this is possible! But you need the manual for this product. There's a IFFConverter on the disk with which you can grap specific part of your picture, but the size to capture must be byte perfect to work!
320x158(biglogo) en 320x54(little logo); in the iff converter you've to look at the size of bitplanes: BIGLOGO: BITPLANE= 18B0 TOTAL= 062C0 ;
for little logo: BITPLANE= 0870 TOTAL= 021C0
Also you can load your own blobs, sprites, fonts etc. Really nice product!
