Re: Fusion

Old thread update : I didn't know offhand a program that merges multiple image exposures so I did some digging.

Re: MindMapple

Old thread update : it wasn't exceedingly clear from the website but I think this has gone fully commercial.

Re: BigType - as-you-type zoom

Old thread update: no updates since first posted but wanted to make sure I included the animation as it really explains the program functionality well.

Flashpoint - game and animation archive

Flashpoint looks like an interesting way to kill a weekend (or a few) with a 650 meg downloadable file with a wide array of compatibility settings. The project is meant to back up thousands of defunct videos and games. I'm also sure there's a few good tools in the mix there. Note that the "Infinity...

Re: AV1 video / AVIF graphic format

I kept waiting on Firefox to go live with on-by-default AVIF support but it keeps getting pushed back. Here's a quick update:

Now supported by GIMP, FreeVimager Nomacs, Paint.net so far. There's also DarkTable and I found a pretty solid online converter: https://avif.io/

Re: SavageEd2

It will look in current folder first, if found, SavageEd will use that .ini profile. If there is no .ini file in the SavageEd folder, it will look for one in "%USERPROFILE%\config\SavageEd.ini" If that file exists, SavageEd will use that file as the profile. If neither exists, SavageEd will create ...

Not to be confused with the system power automation tool Shutter Lite , Shutter Encoder is a very promising video encoding tool with some excellent features, including extraction, cut without re-encoding, and filters. Nice to see it supports more recent formats like AV1. Distributes a 64-bit only "p...
