Hey ScienceDad,

I've seen you posting a few things here and there about this, and as a mac user I'm very interested, but like complete programs and not fiddling around with script, etc.
However, I drag my png in, and it says "processing" and then quits. Nothing follows. Was I doing something wrong? I believe my image was the full colour set too.

Also, reading your post, have you considered being able to:
1 - 'print' the pattern as a pdf?
2 - Being about to change the size of the image? KG chart has a lot of customize-ability, and this is clearly very new, but I use that feature a lot...

Also, I'd quite like to see a full set of icons, I noticed some of your colours had icons, some not, I regularly use images with very similar colours, so different icons is a must for me really...

Although all that said, thank you so much for making one :D Its about time someone did, us Mac users are a bit left out...

Hi LL,

Thanks for your feedback :-)
If you do a drag-and-drop, Spriter will pop up a window that says processing and then automatically quit. There should now be a new file in the same folder as your *.png file called *.ps (where * is whatever the filename prefix was).

Please let me know if it worked ok!

Could you please explain what you mean by printing a pattern? You should be able to open up the PostScript file in Preview and print from there - or am I confused? :-)

Re: changing size of image, I could work that into a revision but that's the sort of thing I tend to do in GraphicConverter. Having said that, the PNG library in Python may have that kind of functionality.

Re: icons, I coded an adaptive algorithm that detects which colours are similar to one another and then only annotates the minimum of colours that it needs to distinguish those "neighbours" from each other. I'm working form the philosophy of keeping the chart as simple as possible. KG Chart output looks cluttered to me, IMHO :-)

Cheers,
- sd.

Hi again,

Now that I've had a good look at my Chrono Trigger example, I can see that it could use some more "icons" (I call them annotations :grin: ). So I'm going to lower the sensitivity so that Spriter is more liberal about assigning icons to differentiate similar colours.

I'm also going to try having Spriter automatically spawn a new window containing the PostScript image so that when you drag-and-drop a PNG file onto the Spriter window, something will actually happen. Better user experience and all that :grin:

Thanks again for your feedback!

Oh, and an unfortunate issue that I did not anticipate is that one must be running at least OS X 10.5 (Leopard) for this revision of Spriter (0.2 beta :D ) to work properly.

If there's anyone out there running 10.4, then I may be able to package another version of Spriter that should also run. Just lemme know!

Ah, now it works. :D I did notice 2 problems though. Firstly the colour list can go 'off the page' if they image isn't wide enough. And secondly, a colour came up twice... I put an image in so you could see. The colours also seem slightly off. The pattern I posted doesn't really show it, but I uploaded an earth with a definitely blue sea, and it came out one of the most purple threads there are... I'll still experiment some more and see if other colours are a bit off too, but on the most they look fine.
