"FilmMaker is the ultimate animation program. Position, path, rotation, scale, color, and transparency are all animatable in an environment that provides real-time control and creative flexibility. FilmMaker does the kind of work that until now meant hours of tedious labor." --publisher's description

Manual (over 200 pages; not scanned) states this is version 2.1, but version info on the disks states 2.0.3. And nowhere in any of the documentation is there a year provided! Only on the disks themselves.

Developer apparently was based in Paris, France.

Architecture: 68k

Minimum requirements: System 6.0.5 or later, 5MB RAM, 32-bit QuickDraw, math coprocessor, any Macintosh II family computer with a hard disk.

Crashed OS 9.2.2; not recommended for PPC's or anything later than Mac OS 7.

Well, I own one of those Wink
The "problem" with it was, after upgrading my se/30 to system 7.0 it did not work anymore. Interesting to see it working on a system 7 environment here. Great program for that time!
I will have to post some images of the box etc... if anyone is interested...
Stay tuned Wink

FilmMaker will also run on Mini vMac II (Mac OS 7.1 and 7.5.5).

Film Maker runs with Mac OS 7.1, 256 colours in FusionPC set to MacII emulation.
FusionPC is available for free from ,it needs a WIN98 or lower host or DOSBox to be executed.
From a first glance, FM looks very interesting, especially considering its age.

Anyone with a system or emulator capable of running this, please provide a screenshot or two.

This software came in a big yellow tin that looks like a film can, and has a pricetag of $599.99 from an Egghead store! The manual is large and is mostly just a list of the software's menu options, so I haven't bothered trying to scan it. There is a Quick Start guide that is shorter and seems more useful, and so is included.
