    framebuffer
  • while strictly PC boards, some Amiga applications directly support them as framebuffers through a BridgeBoard with Janus software
  • Caligari Broadcast has native support for the Targa boards (including saving in Targa format, automatic transferring through the BridgeBoard and loading the image into the Targa framebuffer)
  • Sculpt renders directly through the Sculpt-Direct and Targa-Direct (TGALink) modules of Active Circuits' ImageLink software
  • the various Targa, Targa+ and ATVista boards can do much more than displaying 24 bit images in their framebuffer, but those features (capture, live overlay, keying, etc.) are not utilized by Amiga applications
