After one year of alpha state, picFX has now switched to beta. You can
finally save your pictures from the program.
This is a beta software. Please read guide.
[New since 0.9 alpha:
* Save Picture works now
* Pressing space switches between 1:1 and match_window scaling in projects windows
* Bug fixes
]

This program lets you mix, deform or create picutes using functions.
You can open as many windows as you want, each one can be either an
image or a function.
The program calculates your r(x,y) g(x,y) and b(x,y) functions and
writes a pixel of these red/green/blue components. You can refer to
other projects in a formula:
r(2,x,y) = 255-r(1,x,y)
g(2,x,y) = 255-g(1,x,y)
b(2,x,y) = 255-b(1,x,y)
would output a negative version of project number one.
r(3,x,y) = (r(1,x,y)+r(2,x,y))/2
g(3,x,y) = (g(1,x,y)+g(2,x,y))/2
b(3,x,y) = (b(1,x,y)+b(2,x,y))/2
would mix projects one and two into project three.
r(1,x,y) = x
g(1,x,y) = y
b(1,x,y) = 255-(x+y)/2
would produce a nice spread..
This program is completely multi-tasking! Every time a rendering is
started, a new task is created and its priority is a little lower
than the main task, so the main program isn't slowed down when
projects are rendering!
Amazingly fast rendering :-))
There is a friendly and intuitive user interface using MUI.
You have wide control over running projects: you can pause or change
the sub-task priority while it is running directely from the
user-interface. You can also hide windows to avoid cluttering the
screen. Then you won't even remark that the computer is hard working
on those projects :-)
Locale support; available languages (the guide is English-only):
- English
- French
[Any translator is welcome! Please send me your translations!]
Although this program is postcardware, it has no restriction. You can
unpack and use it without limitation now!
Written in AmigaE, full source-code is included (MUI custom classes
with custom methods and attributes, Exec lists, tasks and ports,
dynamic assembly code generation, ... are used).
