Yes, but only for a few bit planes, typically 2 or 3. REBOL uses a full 24-bit compositing engine, which requires quantization and C2P-conversion in real-time. Other Amiga programs with similar functionality (24-bit paint programs etc.) are similarly slow. View does support hardware scrolling, but most programs do not make use of it. -- Holger Kruse [holger--rebol--com]
