Effect Presets and Image Optimization

I'm currently juggling time between our different software products, trying to balance bug fixes for one to general improvements to another. Today, I want to show a glimpse of some improvements being made to our Gif Animator.

For some time now, I have been using an extension with Gif Animator that allows limited scripting using JavaScript. I mainly use this extension to automatically apply effects to animations via macro's, an example of which you can see below

Gif Animator 0.0.4.0 Beta Released

Cyotek Gif Animator 0 Comments

It hasn't been long since the last update to Gif Animator and although I don't want to make a habit of cluttering the product blog with boring release notifications I'll probably make an exception for releases with interesting new features or important bug fixes. Both of which I think this update qualifies for! This update offers various UI tweaks and enhancements, some performance improvements, the odd new tool and quite a few bug fixes.

You can view a full list of changes here, a condensed summary is available below, and you can download from the usual place.

Today I'm pleased to announce the latest update for Gif Animator has been released. This new version is the first of our products to use new libraries that provide much more functionality that was previously available - even if the UI itself doesn't look that much different, under the hood it's very new.

Some of the notable changes in this update include

Gif Animator and Image Effects

Cyotek Spriter Cyotek Gif Animator 0 Comments

Although we haven't really drawn attention to it by providing samples or SDK documentation, all of Cyotek's products are extensible in various ways. As long as you can code in a .NET language and can work with the API each product provides that is.

Cyotek's Gif Animator is no exception. The currently released version supports the same level of "standard" add-ins that other products include, and the development version now includes a new experimental image effects plugin system too.
