From James Lloyd (May 2006)

Your entry for the Amiga 2500 with video Toaster is incorrect.  The Video Toaster did not ship with Ray Dream 3D, it shipped with the first incarnation of Lightwave 3D, which is still one of the most powerful 3D programs in the field of special effects and animation.  In fact, a number of professional animators bought the Toaster for this program alone (myself included), as it was a bargain considering it included the full 24bit framebuffer of the Toaster.  Lightwave was the progeny of two former Amiga programs, Videoscape 3D and Modeler 3D, both from a company called Aegis.  Newtek bought them and combined them into Lightwave, which they still market to PC and Mac users.

Curator: thanks James, it is corrected!
