    lucid got a reaction from TristanFat in Spriter r2 released! Steam Sale 50% until December 2nd   
    Hello everyone!
        Welcome to the first post 1.0 release of Spriter.  Aside from a couple of bug fixes, this release includes a new video help option that lets you watch our YouTube tutorials in a floating window (with links to open the playlists in your default browser).  Video Help will show up immediately upon startup to give guidance for beginners, and the window has an option to disable this behavior.  Spriter will now warn you if you try to save outside the project directory that it won't be able to find it's images, and will also provide an explanation and the expected file structure when you load a file with missing images.
    An important note for Mac users.  There is an optimization in this version that may correct the performance issues some users have been experiencing on the Mac.  Please let me know if this fixes the issue for you, as it seemed to make a significant difference on our machines.
    We will continue to fix bugs and provide minor feature updates, but my primary focus at the moment is completing the developer documentation.
    Lastly, if you're reading this and you don't already own Spriter Pro, or you have a friend who doesn't, Steam is having their Autumn Sale now, and Spriter is 50% off until December 2nd.  Spread the word!
    Thanks everyone, and enjoy the new build!

    Hi @asahi. sorry it took so long to get back to you.
     
    In order to allow Spriter to work on the most possible engines, for now Spriter only supports rigid transformations.
    so for child bones, you would apply
    the transforms named 'parent' below are the parent's final values after applying their own parent
    the transforms named 'child' are the value before applying the parent transform (the same as they are in the file)
    scaleX=parentScaleX * childScaleX scaleY=parentScaleY * childScaleY angle=parentAngle + child angle, x=(parentScaleX * childX) rotated around parentPositiony=(parentScaleY * childY) rotated around parentPosition

    lucid reacted to Dengar in Spriter for Unity 5.0   
    v1.0.2:
    Fixes:
    -Fixed an issue where sprites appeared distorted when resizing bones.
    -Exceptions are wrapped up nicely and no longer abort the whole process
    Features:
    -Now adds AnimationClips to existing AnimatorStates if they exist
    -Autosaves no longer trigger the importer
     
     
    Note that there is still some anomalous behaviour here and there. But the weird distortions should see about a 95% decrease. Special thanks to dagondev for helping me identify the issue, and Mike and Edgar for teaching me some things about Spriter to help me fix the issue.
     
    It's a bit of a shame that the tool is getting slightly slower with every update, but it's still within reason. I was able to import a project that has over 60 different AnimationClips in less than 20 seconds.
     
    I also have to add that most animation transitions work best if they are instant (IE no blend). Although it's really a case by case basis. But generally if the poses between two animations are radically different from one another, you want the transition to happen instantly.

    lucid reacted to billymonks in Negative scale values in Trixt0r XNA implementation   
    Hello all, I apologize if I am posting in the wrong place.
     
    I am working on a game using the Trixt0r XNA implementation of Spriter to display objects.
     
    The other night I discovered that bones & sprites which had negative X_scale values were failing to render in game.
     
    --> 
     
    Are there any known solutions or workarounds? Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated. 
     
    Edit: As a workaround I replaced the bones and sprites that had negative Xscale.
     
    Spriter is an excellent tool and I am very thankful for its existence, even in its early state, and Trixt0r for his open source implementations which have saved me months of work.  :mrgreen:

    lucid got a reaction from TristanFat in Please post feature suggestions here.   
    it's a definite possibility for the long term.
    good idea. It was already going to have the spinboxes, but that's a good idea. Also, the angle control will have a wheel you can rotate with your mouse.
    The current beta does have a 'protected selection' feature. You can drag, drop, and rotate a selected object even if it's behind others. only if you click a sprite on an area that doesn't overlap the currently selected object(s) will it change the selection.
    yes, that's in there
    yes, the next release will be native UI on Windows, Mac, and, Linux
    yes, all of that is planned for the long term, and the groundwork is already layed for those features.
    thanks for the kind words, and yes, we do want to work with the community to develop an ecosystem of some sort for both the animators and the developers.
    the todolist is huge, but things are going very well on fronts.
    working hard on the next version, and loving every minute of it.

    lucid got a reaction from DarrenOl in Spriter B6 pre-release ready for Windows testers   
    Hi everyone,
    Spriter's b6 build has passed internal testing, with all known bugs fixed... now we need your help to test this new build and it's new features as thoroughly as only a whole community can, so we can confidently replace b5 with b6 as the official latest build as quickly as possible.
    Before you download, remember, this is the pre-release version and is bound to have bugs we haven’t found yet, and especially with so many new features added, there's always a chance for data corrupting bugs, so please, only use this pre-release build for testing purposes.
    Here's the link to the b6 pre-release version
    Also, please watch this overview of the new features so you can better use and test the new features in b6. (obviously while everyone can test the build in general, only Pro owners will be able to use and test the new pro-only features).

    Spriter R4.1 Critical Bug Fix:
    There was a critical bug in yesterday's build of Spriter that made it so you couldn't edit default pivot points.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and here is a new version that fixes the issue.  If you use the Steam version of Spriter, it should automatically update the next time you log in.
    This version also contains a fix that may help some Steam users that were experiencing library issues on Linux.  
     
     
    Original R4 Update:
    Hi everyone,
     
    We're pleased to announce the release of Spriter build R4 available for download at www.brashmonkey.com and also as an automatic update on Steam.
     
    R4 is the first build to feature the newly updated manual which now covers all core features. R4 also features the long awaited hot-key list, which you can access by pressing Shift+Escape (or through the Help menu).
     
    One great new feature introduced in this new build is the ability to copy a specific individual attribute of an object (such as it's x scale, y scale, position, angle, or opacity) and automatically paste to all of its other key frames.
     
    This build should also fix a library issue with the 64 bit Linux version. Internal testing shows the Steam version of Spriter Pro now loads properly from Steam with Ubuntu 11.04, but so far we can only get it to run on Ubuntu 14 by launching it directly from it's Steam folder location.  It will not launch directly from Steam itself.  We will continue to look into this and thank you for your patience.
     
    Here is the full changelog for Spriter R4:
     
    Spriter Release 4
    Released 4/22/2015
     
    Additions and Enhancements
    Updated manual now includes all core features Added Shortcut Key Popup (available in the Help menu, and through keyboard shortcut Shift-Esc) Added the right-click menu option on the canvas to copy a single object attribute (x,y,angle,etc) to every frame (when one object is selected) Export To PNG/Gif window now remembers 'Keyframes Only' setting   
    Changes
    Minor cosmetic changes Changed Export to PNG Sequence naming convention to use one underscore (myImage_000.png) instead of two (myImage__000.png), as the double underscore was causing issues on certain OS's and API's Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug that made the right click image list for sprites not show up under certain circumstances Removed the 'Program Update' settings from the Steam version, as Steam handles updates and these settings had no effect. We'd also like to take this opportunity to mention some great new Spriter implementations in the works for several popular authoring systems. Here are links so you can get the specific details for each of them. (If we missed any new Spriter implementations, please let us know and we'll mention it in our next update.)
     
    Atomic Game Engine (Video) 
     
    Overlap 2d
     
    Clickteam Fusion  (Video) 
     
    We should also mention Spriter2Unity has also been updated to work with Unity 5.
     
     
    Speaking of runtimes, we'd like to humbly thank everyone again for your patience as we continue to work on the Spriter Pro reference implementation. As most of you may know, the goal is to provide a fully featured and easy to follow/port Spriter implementation, and the delay is in general because we are making sure the implementation is as flexible as possible, includes several up-coming features and improvements, and makes room for the easy addition of several planned features which will be a big part of Spriter's future. As this full and future-proof implementation develops we're very excited with what it will offer Spriter users, but it's also becoming obvious that there's a conflict between the need to make sure its done carefully and the desire to get it done quickly.
     
    For this reason we've decided its best for me to switch gears and make a much simpler reference implementation which perfectly supports all current features (but not the future features) so that people who need to port or finish a Spriter implementation sooner rather than later will have a concise and easy to follow example in the near future. The much more robust implementation will be the focus once the basic implementation is made available to everyone. We will deliver a detailed update regarding this 1.0 feature complete reference implementation within the next 14 days.

    Hi everyone,
    Here's another beta release for public testing which includes the following new features:
    This build is still not quite b6, as we need to do a bit more testing and the members of the community who use Mac or Linux need to make sure it runs properly on their respective systems.
    You can download the new build(s) from the following link(s):
    PC version
    Mac version
    Linux version
    1) You can now quickly and easily change the position of an entire animation relative to its 0,0 coordinate (anchor point) by holding the M key while on any key frame and left clicking and dragging the 0,0 cross-hair lines.
    2) You can now scale entire Spriter projects (images and .scml or .scon file) to any size you'd like...so you can create your animations in high res, and scale it all down for different resolution platforms etc, or scale down or up the size of our art packs to perfectly fit the size needs of your game projects. Be sure to do this only with copies of your Spriter projects because this feature permanently changes the images and files.
    3) You can now fix the z-order for your animation on one key frame and instantly copy the new z-order to all other key frames in the animation.
    Please watch this video to see these 3 features in action:

    4) Sound support is now implemented and ready for testing. The UI is currently unfinished, but useable...just bare in mind the interface for adding and manipulating sounds will improve in the future.
    Here's a video explaining exactly how to add sounds to your animations:

    changelog


    [*:lla2aa25]added shortcut for hiding skinning arrows (Ctrl-H)
    [*:lla2aa25]added ability to move an entire animation relative to the (0,0) axis - hold M while dragging the canvas background
    [*:lla2aa25]added ability to save project to a new size (resizing animations and images) - option under 'File|Other File Options...'
    [*:lla2aa25]added ability to copy z-order to all frames - under the edit menu
    [*:lla2aa25]added ability to hide timelines in the timeline widget
    [*:lla2aa25]fixed bug that created "missing image"s for files that weren't in use.
    [*:lla2aa25]fixed a bug where choosing not to "show sprites" in the hierarchy view would hide bones as well

    Hey there.
     
    Thought I'd pass that along in case nobody else had noticed it yet.
     
    If you name an animation like this: "Chop - Sword/Knife", then attempt to export that animation using the batch tool to create an animated GIF (seems okay when creating sprite sheets though), Spriter immediately crashes and the export fails.
     
    Renaming the animation to something not using "/" such as "Chop - Sword_Knife" seems to work fine however. So it seems directly related to the use of "/" in the animation name.
     
    Tested in both Release 4 and recent Release 4.1 but no earlier builds.
     
    Thanks

    lucid got a reaction from JohnnyType in Spriter R4.1 Release (4.1 update contains critical bug fix)   
    Spriter R4.1 Critical Bug Fix:
    There was a critical bug in yesterday's build of Spriter that made it so you couldn't edit default pivot points.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and here is a new version that fixes the issue.  If you use the Steam version of Spriter, it should automatically update the next time you log in.
    This version also contains a fix that may help some Steam users that were experiencing library issues on Linux.  
     
     
    Original R4 Update:
    Hi everyone,
     
    We're pleased to announce the release of Spriter build R4 available for download at www.brashmonkey.com and also as an automatic update on Steam.
     
    R4 is the first build to feature the newly updated manual which now covers all core features. R4 also features the long awaited hot-key list, which you can access by pressing Shift+Escape (or through the Help menu).
     
    One great new feature introduced in this new build is the ability to copy a specific individual attribute of an object (such as it's x scale, y scale, position, angle, or opacity) and automatically paste to all of its other key frames.
     
    This build should also fix a library issue with the 64 bit Linux version. Internal testing shows the Steam version of Spriter Pro now loads properly from Steam with Ubuntu 11.04, but so far we can only get it to run on Ubuntu 14 by launching it directly from it's Steam folder location.  It will not launch directly from Steam itself.  We will continue to look into this and thank you for your patience.
     
    Here is the full changelog for Spriter R4:
     
    Spriter Release 4
    Released 4/22/2015
     
    Additions and Enhancements
    Updated manual now includes all core features Added Shortcut Key Popup (available in the Help menu, and through keyboard shortcut Shift-Esc) Added the right-click menu option on the canvas to copy a single object attribute (x,y,angle,etc) to every frame (when one object is selected) Export To PNG/Gif window now remembers 'Keyframes Only' setting   
    Changes
    Minor cosmetic changes Changed Export to PNG Sequence naming convention to use one underscore (myImage_000.png) instead of two (myImage__000.png), as the double underscore was causing issues on certain OS's and API's Bug Fixes
    Fixed a bug that made the right click image list for sprites not show up under certain circumstances Removed the 'Program Update' settings from the Steam version, as Steam handles updates and these settings had no effect. We'd also like to take this opportunity to mention some great new Spriter implementations in the works for several popular authoring systems. Here are links so you can get the specific details for each of them. (If we missed any new Spriter implementations, please let us know and we'll mention it in our next update.)
     
    Atomic Game Engine (Video) 
     
    Overlap 2d
     
    Clickteam Fusion  (Video) 
     
    We should also mention Spriter2Unity has also been updated to work with Unity 5.
     
     
    Speaking of runtimes, we'd like to humbly thank everyone again for your patience as we continue to work on the Spriter Pro reference implementation. As most of you may know, the goal is to provide a fully featured and easy to follow/port Spriter implementation, and the delay is in general because we are making sure the implementation is as flexible as possible, includes several up-coming features and improvements, and makes room for the easy addition of several planned features which will be a big part of Spriter's future. As this full and future-proof implementation develops we're very excited with what it will offer Spriter users, but it's also becoming obvious that there's a conflict between the need to make sure its done carefully and the desire to get it done quickly.
     
    For this reason we've decided its best for me to switch gears and make a much simpler reference implementation which perfectly supports all current features (but not the future features) so that people who need to port or finish a Spriter implementation sooner rather than later will have a concise and easy to follow example in the near future. The much more robust implementation will be the focus once the basic implementation is made available to everyone. We will deliver a detailed update regarding this 1.0 feature complete reference implementation within the next 14 days.

    Ok.  It's happening for me, too.  I'll let you know as soon as I get a fix.  Make sure you have auto-update checks enabled in your settings to get the hotfix as soon as I release it.
     
    EDIT: Fixed, and Windows version is ready for manual download . Currently building for other platforms

    lucid got a reaction from DarrenOl in Spriter r2 released! Steam Sale 50% until December 2nd   
    Hello everyone!
        Welcome to the first post 1.0 release of Spriter.  Aside from a couple of bug fixes, this release includes a new video help option that lets you watch our YouTube tutorials in a floating window (with links to open the playlists in your default browser).  Video Help will show up immediately upon startup to give guidance for beginners, and the window has an option to disable this behavior.  Spriter will now warn you if you try to save outside the project directory that it won't be able to find it's images, and will also provide an explanation and the expected file structure when you load a file with missing images.
    An important note for Mac users.  There is an optimization in this version that may correct the performance issues some users have been experiencing on the Mac.  Please let me know if this fixes the issue for you, as it seemed to make a significant difference on our machines.
    We will continue to fix bugs and provide minor feature updates, but my primary focus at the moment is completing the developer documentation.
    Lastly, if you're reading this and you don't already own Spriter Pro, or you have a friend who doesn't, Steam is having their Autumn Sale now, and Spriter is 50% off until December 2nd.  Spread the word!
    Thanks everyone, and enjoy the new build!
