I felt like I was spamming the timeline when I was posting screencaps, so here's a few all in one post. I wanted to include some images of the UI, including the dialog for animating transitions between scenes.
there's also what appears to be an authentic screen made for a home shopping channel that was included in the OS card I bought. the gray background would have been replaced by a video feed going through the device

I added a box for some extra background and gave the text some drop shadow. there are all kinds of little details like opacity, the ability to skew and resize objects using widgets, a real-time clock, and the ability to add JPEGs and other images with transparency.

I think this thing came out in 1996 or '97

so here I've edited a scene or whatever you call it. You can see some of the dialog boxes; this is what the whole OS looks like on this thing. it's a really strange experience because it's a single large box made just for this one application

so this is the Videonics PowerScript 4000S. I think it was meant to be a professional or semi-professional video character generator, meaning it generates text and some graphics for the purposes of television broadcast
