» BuildAnim 2.0 available for FTP «
Christer Sundin, email@example.com
BuildAnim is an animation utility, and it can do three different
operations: 1) It can build an animation out of individual ILBM
pictures, 2) it can split an animation, and save the frames as
ILBM pictures, or 3) it can convert an animation from one ANIM
compression type to another.
Several compression types are supported: 2, 3, 5, 7 and 'J', but
BuildAnim can only create type 5 and 7 animations.
These are some of the changes since version 1.5:
o Completely rewritten using C. The compression and decompression
routines are kept in assembler, though.
o BuildAnim can now also split and convert animations.
o Reading and writing is buffered, to maximize throughput.
o BuildAnim can read ANIM types 2, 3, 5, 7, and 'J', and write
ANIM types 5 and 7.
o Options can be saved in an envrinoment variable.
Kickstart 2.04 or higher.
