That's what I remember, too, but I could be wrong. I also seem to remember 
that the Toaster had something that came along later called the "Toaster 
Flyer" card that would allow you to digitize video and work with it 
digitally, but I never used one. 

I was too poor. All I could afford in those days were tiny frame grabbers 
for the Amiga.
