Fantastic suggestion, thanks, PixelRebirth!

And with that we get versions 0.3 of both FlareGEN and FlashGEN:



New interface is just one of the improvements - better sliders, better inner logic (less stupid maths, hopefully), the ability to set the size for the exported/copied images, proper flash generation (now with new and improved controls - just click the dice a couple of times to see what they do).

In CAP form, as usual, at the usual place: FlareGEN and FlashGEN. Enjoy, more comments and/or suggestions welcome.

Very nice UI.
And I can use come of this exported images Cool !

Sometimes though, when I'm draging a slider, the on drop doesn't seem to be taken in effect, and so, even if I released my mouse button, the slider still follows the cursor.

Dunno if it can be modified, or even if it isn't another trick from my defiant mouse (it could be, she has a lot of character).

Good job !

Yeah, I noticed that, guess it's all about mouse movement speed. Still, it's better than the previous one, so there's some progress. Also each improvement will go into the following tools so by the end somewhere there should be some pretty interesting things.

It certainly helps to plan things out a bit and then implement them in Construct, even though it seems so quick and easy there's a temptation to just do it. But planning pays off. On that note... EXCLUSIVE BEHIND THE SCENES IMAGE:

I guess your office is missing a roll of labels now
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Dont know if you have already done it, but it's missing the option of saving with transparent background ? (unless i missed it)

I added it to the version i downloaded (you can use the transparent flare image for a particle texture.........just a thought?

Cool app.


Edit...I just read your first post...youve already done it!

Oh well.. chrisbrobs2011-08-17 10:50:31

Glad to see people like this.

So here's versions 0.4 of both FlareGEN and FlashGEN.

Changes include some code improvements - everything's neatly arranged in groups now, slider refreshing is done by a function now and some small cleanup here and there.

Visually the dice icon now gives you some feedback and some unnecessary extra refreshing has been removed.

As for usability you can now Ctrl+C to copy and Ctrl+S to save in both. I'm still undecided on including a save dialog or sequential saving, but I suspect this too will be implemented in the future.

Enjoy.
