LMPC, short for The Little Movie Processing Centre, is a tool package to handle demos of Doom engine and other games. It was developed by Uwe Girlich with its first release appearing in August 1994. Supporting initially only Doom, subsequent releases allowing working with Doom II, Heretic, Hexen, and Strife demos, and eventually demos from other engines/games as well. After the last stable release in January 2000 and a development pause of several years, sporadic alpha releases appeared between 2004 and 2007. The package also includes a handful of other tools and scripts.
