Do you mean the Floyd-Steinberg or the non-dithered versions?

And... otherworldly? So they best would be soundtracked with Larry 
"Synergy" Fast's or Walter/Wendy Carlos' music (if you're familiar with it)?

Yes, I (of course ;-)) had several C 64s (and a C 128!) back in the 
80s... but I bought my current one only in 2005! And last year also an 
Atari 1040 STFM, which was a real bargain - though I still have not 
managed to get the SF 314 external floppy drive working!

In the longer run, I plan to get these animations (and also longer 
videos - I recently converted the entire Back to the Future movie to 
Atari ST Floyd-Steinberg monochrome (640 by 345 pixels) and started 
adding subtitles using the remaining 55 pixel rows - of course doing 
this with POV-Ray!) running from harddisks plugged to the Atari ST...

See you in Khyberspace!
