FilmGIMP

Unread postby Shtoink » Wed Feb 05, 2003 11:45 pm

Am I the only one who hasn't seen this?:shock:
http://filmgimp.sourceforge.net/
If someone with compiling tools installed would do us all a big favor... Compile and then make a tardist of this. That would be most excelent. As I am a complete idiot when it comes to compiling anything. So far I have only been able to download source code, decompress it, and then proceede to blow everything to hell.

I think that I'll stick to mastering my bascis and stuff befoe I get to far ahead of my skill level. I kep learning the hard way that you need to learn to crawl before you can walk. More important than that, you need to learn some controll of your major muscle groups before you can even attempt to crawl.

Mentally, I am a bowl of some unidentified, gelatinous muck.

No, you're not the only one :P

I've seen this a few days ago on newsgroup comp.sys.sgi.apps.

I don't have compiling tools installed (i'll try using gcc), but i think i'll give it a shot this week end. (maybe we'll need a tutorial, links appreciated :D )

It seems to be quite "easy" to compile, as the original author said. (i mean : there's no big problem).

I was impressed to read that some cinema studios used filmgimp for their movies!

it's "da GNU Powa".

FilmGimp experiences

Unread postby psergiu » Thu Feb 06, 2003 5:41 am

I tried FilmGIMP under linux and here are my experiences with it:

- Gimp 1.0 interface (modified)
- Can load max 100 frames at a time
- You neet a sh*tload of memory or it'll be slow/swapping as hell
- Expect crashes

For anything else - it's an Gimp 1.0 with 16 bit/chanel depth and a framestore. You can paint jedi swords on your home movies and that's much it :) (extremely useful for someone who'se job is to alter a movie but not for other purposes)

I think my origianl thought, that was mysteriously absent from the earlier post, was to have someone comile it adn submit it to the authors site to make it availble for download to other people using IRIX. Don't know hy I left that part out.

I saw that it had some nice features that would be completely useless for me. I just had never seen that it was there before the other day.

I have FilmGIMP running under Mac OS X but haven't tried an IRIX build yet. One more in a long list of things to try when I have time :)

Anyone willing to bulid a tardist out of it, or at least help me out on getting me started on making a tardist?

Can one make a tardist out of something that you already have installed or do you need to have the source for it as well?

Okay, here you go: http://www.nekochan.net/downloads/filmgimp-0.15.tardist

Depends on GTK stuff from SGI Freeware - if you have SGI's GIMP installed your dependencies should be covered ... very limited testing performed (launched it, created a new file, opened a JPEG).

Let me know if you have any issues, and if everything seems good to go I'll post it on the front page of the site.

I have this to say about FilmGimp...

It freaking rocks!
It has that cool little thing I wanted with the brush icon sizes, and I think that it actually loads faster. I do think we have the current free photo editing winner of my choice right here. No errors with it yet either. :wink:

Looks like nekonoko has touched the hearts of many...

I found this guy talking about how he found a tardist of filmgimp here.

Hallo,

auf der Seite http://www.nekochan.net gibt es eine kompillierte Irix Version
des Programms
"FilmGimp" als tardist ~ 7.8 MB.

by Tim :-)



I'm not very good at german, but he does seem to be happy... :D

I compiled and packaged filmGIMP-0.16 this past evening; get it here:

http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/downloads/filmgimp-0.16.tardist

Hopefully it works okay for everyone ... I had it crash on me a couple of times while testing it so I'll be sure and keep the 0.15 version up as well just in case.

I haven't had .16 crash at all, but I did run into some weird issues with the brush selection window. It would lag like crazy when I went to scroll through the brushes. Kinda strange, but it's the only thing I have run into so far.

I did notice that it can handle about 3 times as many formats as .15 though. It still won't open BMPs, but now it can handle GIFs.

***********
I also noticed that messing with the brush noise makes the reactime to paint on your image very lagged as well, but that may be something with my machine and it trying to generate randomized noise while I swing the cursor all over the place.

Well looks like FilmGIMP's name has been changed to CinePaint, and the website has moved to http://cinepaint.sourceforge.net/

The current version is still the same though (0.16) - no new tardist necessary. I admit I do like the new name though.
