The ST Juggler (Monochrome Version) with Logos

Tri-Vision presents: THE ST JUGGLER, Monochrome Version ... a Terminator/Dr Smith Production

This demo was originally created in 4096 colors on the Commodore Amiga using ray-tracing software.

This Monochrome version has 4 frames less then the original Amiga demo.

Eric Graham's legendary Amiga demo The Juggler shows a robot juggling three mirror balls. The Amiga demo was one of the earliest full-color 3D raytraced animations rendered and displayed on a personal computer. When released in 1986 no other stock personal computer could have run anything like it. The frames were encoded in the Amiga's HAM (Hold-And-Modify) display mode which uses a highly unusual technique to express the color of pixles. This allowed to display up to 4'096 colors on screen which is much more than otherwise would be possible.
