The Magician

Animated and rendered with «Sculpt Animate 3D» on Commodore AMIGA 1000 in 1988. Inspired by the famous «Juggler» demo of Eric Graham. One HAM frame took 16 hours and the frames were usually rendered into the RAM or on 3,5 inch floppy disks. When I upgraded the 68000 processor to a 68020 with a co-processor the rendering took still a couple of hours per frame. Finalle Byte-by-Byte released a new version of Sculpt Animate 3D with an optimzed ray-tracer and rendertime was lowered to 40 minutes per frame.
