The FilmeMacher (english: MovieMaker) program is used to create movies out of single 17 KB CPC screens. The finished movie can be displayed very fast (up to 50 fps) with the corresponding Projector tool. It was the first application for the CPC which displays fullscreen (16 KB) movies with 50 fps.


FilmeMacher loads one screen after another into the RAM of the CPC. The differences between two screens were calculated and transformed into so called CoData. CoData is a mixture out of Code and Data, specifically developped for FilmeMacher. After loading of all needed pictures, the compiled CoData movie will be saved to disc.

To show the CoData movie, another part of the application is used. The structure of CoData allows to display the finished movie with up to 50 fps in 16 KB fullscreen under FutureOS and BASIC.

Languages: FilmeMacher / MovieMaker is available with English, German and French language interface.

Filmemacher runs under FutureOS. It needs at least a Class 4 CPC.
