Production Info
Submitted by Clarence on 14 October 2007
Pixel Perfect v1.0 by Clarence/Chorus
Release date: 2007.10.15.

Introduction:
-------------
It's an Interlace-FLI editor for the Commodore 64. Intented to be used on the
real hardware for hardcore pixel artists of the C64 scene! The reason behind
this release is: even though emulators and superior pc drawing tools are
all around, the interlace mode of the C64 still cannot be emulated 
perfectly on a PC, the color blending is far from perfect. Existing C64 ifli
tools are slow, unreliable, buggy and unfriendly according to experienced 
graphician friends (Leon, Jailbird, Poison). So my fellow Hungarians 
persuaded me to make this tool. Hereby I dedicate Pixel Perfect for them!
