ANN: Texture Studio 0.9.5
[1/6] from: rebolek::seznam::cz at: 17-Jun-2002 20:27
Hello, Updated version of Texture Studio is uploaded to my REB. run REBOL/View's Desktop, select Sites/Rebolek and then Texture studio (maybe you have to reload script if old version is in cache) or type at console
>> do http://www.sweb.cz/rebolek/texture-studio.r
Texture Studio is texture generator, editor, manager and now also "skinnig system" for REBOL/View. What's new since last released version (0.9.2) ? -VID patched so most styles can use word 'texture to "skin" intself try something like: view layout [backtile texture 'metal button "Textured?" texture 'moon-hills] -new VID style: 'texture-text for logos, labels... -textures are cached so it's faster (only memory cache at the moment) -GUI layout is more compact -inbuild help (well, a sort of...) -fixed parser and some other bugs -one preset added ;-) What's still missing (why it's not 1.0.0 ;) ? -preset management + up/down-loading preset/textures -disk cache -more presets -fix all possible bugs Full version will be available in three separate versions: engine + basic presets + VID patch - smallest set for use in other applications (I'll try to get this one under 4kB) above + additional VID styles - something bigger with greater functionality above + editor - fullblown texture editor with preset management and full version will be of course freeware (but betas are commercial applications ;-) Send all bugs and comments to [rebolek--seznam--cz] Thanks, Bolek

Hi, Looks good Bolek! I did have some trouble trying to get the bitmap to change... Not sure what is up. Maybe you could have a look at it. If you need more details, I will try to provide them.... ;-) Enjoy!! Ammon On Monday 17 June 2002 02:27 pm, you wrote:

OK, give me more detail because I don't understand your problem at all :-) bb ----- Original Message ----- From: "Enter your name here (Example: Jane Doe)" <[Enter--your--email--address--here--rebol--net] (Example: [jane--company--com])>

Thanks! I had some problems though.. - after several clicks the preview image stopped previewing. - I could only set the background once. - the image seems very fuzzy/grainy, like a newspaper 'screen' effect - is that intentional? ./Jason

??? Tried all presets but preview is still working. Could you specify this somehow? Ah, #$%^, the [preview] button does not work! SHGR@@#$%!!!!

Yes, this is bug. I've found this one 5 mins after uploading TS :-) It was introduced with VID patch I have to investigate it.

is that intentional? Do you mean that background image? This is result of the bug - background texture is not based on selected preset, but the 'default' texture is used. And the 'default' texture is somewhat ugly (I think it was first 'useable' texture made with TS) I have to change it I know ('metal is my favourite now :) Hmm, [preview] button does not work too... And [seed] field crashes whole TS... Seems like I've still something to do... I hope the next version will be available sooner than in half year (as this one) because I just want to fix bugs, add missing features (disk cache, preset management) and leave it 'as is' so I can focus on CASTRO and other projects. bye, bolek

This is a good program, Bolek. If you fix those bugs it will be really useful. Anton.
