software OS4   software OS4 : AnimIcon updated to AmigaOS 4
   posted by broadblues on 5-Jun-2012 15:48:19 (1759 reads)
I'm pleased to announce the release of a rejuvenated version of AnimIcon. Something that's been on my todo list for a while now.

AnimIcon was one of my earliest 'proper programs' (although early versions didn't get released to the public) so it had a certain affection for me. But it looked ugly on my modern AmigaOS workbench so it fell into disuse. Apparenty the 68k version is soon to be included in an 68k AROS distribution so this inspired me to dust off the code, and update it for AmigaOS 4.


The code has been cleaned up, and all depricated function have been replaced with the modern equivalents, (CreatePort -> AllocSysObject etc etc) and much of the clib function have been removed and replaced with utility.library calls.

To add a bit more shine I've upgraded the icon code to create 32bit directmapped images, with true transparency, and create a new example (using blender and sketchblock and a bit of ARexx to build the strip anim, I may release the script to do that later.)

Source code has been included for reference purposes, docs can be found here.

Have fun

For some reason it hasn't appeared in the recent files section on os4depot.

Here is a link:

The source to the OS4 version is available, but not for the OS3 version.

Could you please release the source to the OS3 version? Thanks.

I don't have it to hand and am about to go on tour to France for two weeks. I'll see what I can dig up when I get back.

It may be that the best I can find is an early port to OS4 which was really just a rebuild, the pure 68k sources are probably on my a1200, so I may or may not be able to extract them.
