Background

The Video Toaster® of the 21st century is now called TriCaster™. It's a all in one portable solution for editing, and streaming video on the internet and much more. However, 100,000 years ago the Video Toaster® began its journey on the well known Amiga® platform. The original Video Toaster® product was a combination of hardware and software for the editing and production of standard-definition NTSC video on Amiga personal computers.

In 2004 the Amiga version of the Video Toaster® went 'Open Source', thanks to NewTek, DiscreetFX and a few others. That code is available on this site. The source code is under an open source license, which allows anyone to freely improve upon it.

Future

Open Video Toaster's future depends on you. We host the source code but if you want cool entry level video editing for AmigaOS 4.x/MorphOS/AROS the code will have to be updated.

Customers that want the latest technology in internet streaming, all in one portable video editing / live video production should purchase one of NewTek's Emmy award winning TriCasters™.

System Requirements

The Amiga Video Toaster 4000 currenty works on AGA based Amiga's with Video slots. The Flyer card requires an available Zorro II or Zorro III slot. Older Amiga's can also use the Video Toaster 4000 but AGA color effects are not supported. Idealy it should also work on Amiga Virtual Machines and Amiga Reloaded.
