Laughably OT: Can you ID an old graphics system?
on Apr 19, 2014 at 3:37:04 am

I just know there are a bunch of old-timers lurking here who can answer this.

I'm trying to remember the name of what could best be described as a 2.5-D graphics system from the early/mid 90s. It combined paint box functions with compositing and limited motion graphics. Definitely not Hal or Henry, definitely not SGI, but in the same general class (only cheaper). Custom keyboard and joystick controller, along with a pen and tablet. Not Mac/PC-based like a Toaster or software-based like After Effects. Tell-A-Vision Post (aka TVPost) in Hollywood had one. Maybe three people in Hollywood at that time knew how to use it.

It's driving me crazy. Anyone?
