"released as a final product a program that is full of bugs ... although it all worked smoothly on the Amiga!"

This is why I continue to use IFA 5.13 in FS-UAE, as it is a bit "nicer" in many ways.

There is a nice way to make sure drive litters/names line up if you can "mount" things accordingly. But its not perfect.

Is there a "best practice" to manage projects, both locally and across instances (be it IFW or IFA)?

My "current" thought is to create logical structures like how I did in "the old days".

/projects
|-> project_name
|---> brushes
|---> attributes
|---> objects
|---> stills.pix [settings for stills]
|---> anims.pix [settings for animations]

NOTE: with storage these days, capacity is no longer an issue. Even on my A1200 w/030@50MHz, I had a zip drive for storing projects so my 250gb drive didn't fill up.

Not going to lie, It was nice to move projects from my A1200 to my P3-700MHz with (IFD 4.0 from a cover disk) to render animations with raytracing at NTSC resolutions in a fraction of the time.

It is still uncompressed IFF for IFA, correct?

I want to batch update my brush map libraries to work with both. I think I've had good luck so far with JPG on IFW, but, I want to keep these in sync with my IFA projects.

Some thing "just work nicer" in one UI vs the other.

All,

What is considered the "default" image file format for maps/pics in Imagine?

I think IFW "likes" to use JPG or TGA.
I think IFA "needs" to use IFF files in 24bit ILBM format, correct?

(I'm trying to remember from long ago what I used...)

Just curious, but, what was the "final" version for the Amiga?

I never understood where the CUP for Amiga left off. Did 6.0 ever become reality? was it ever released?

I've been playing with 5.x CUP in FS-UAE... Runnint it on my MacPro.

BTW: If anyone has tips on how to install IFW 2.0 with WineBottler, please let me know. Right now, I'm using it in VirtualBox (XP) and it renders quite well.
