Purpose

WebAnim8r is a powerful animation package for creating banners and graphics for websites. Not only can it create animated GIF images, but its flexible script language can help you automate static sprite or icon creation, allowing you to quickly change parameters in order to see immediately what applying different effects will have.

Currently in development, you can discuss work-in-progress by subscribing to the PV Software mailing list or keep an eye on this page for future updates and a coming feature list....

This version is fully functional (minus the GUI front-end) for beta-testing purposes. Use the following registration details: Username: BETA01 Registration ID: 7310-1018-4989

Key Features

WebAnim8r currently supports over 90 (and growing all the time it's in development!) different keywords in order to provide a great flexibility in creating customised scripts. A comprehensive user interface allows control of the major facilities without even needing to know what's 'under the bonnet'. However, the added power of WebAnim8r's scripting language provides more overall control for advanced users.

Currently supported keywords

3DBORDER, ADD, ARC, ASSIGN, BARCHART, BESTFIT, BLOCKCOPY, BLOCKCOPYREL, BLOCKMOVE, BLOCKMOVEREL, BLUR, BORDER, BUGWALK, CIRCLE, CHAR, CHARS, CLEAR, CLEARALLVARS, CLEARHISTORY, CLOSE, CLS, COG, COLOUR, COPY, DEC, DOUBLE, DRAW, DRAWREL, DRAWRENDER, DUPLICATE, ECHO, ELLIPSE, ENDLOOP, EOR, FILL, FINDX, FINDY, FLIP, FLIPX, FLIPY, FONTPAINT, GETLINE, GRID, HALF, HELP, HSTRIPES, INC, IF, LINE, LINECHART, LINEREL, LOAD, LOOP, MARK+, MARK+REL, MARKX, MARKXREL, MASK, MOVE, MOVEREL, OPEN, OR, ORIGIN, PALETTE, PARALLELOGRAM, PLOT, POINT, POINTREL, POINTCHART, PRINT, RANDOMISE, RESET, RECTANGLE, SCRIPT, SCROLL, SECTOR, SEGMENT, SHAPE, SPEEDO, SPLOT, SPRAY, STAR, SUB, SWAP, TELETEXT, TREE*, TRIANGLE, UNDO, USE, VSTRIPES

Web Tools

WebAnim8r forms part of my growing range of tools for making web design easier. The internet is one area lots of people are interested in at the moment, and I'm always developing tools to make life easier for RISC OS based web designers - such as utilities for automating time consuming or repetitive tasks.

Users of WebAnim8r might also be interested in WebGallery, for automatically creating online photo galleries from directories of images or Webworkz, for converting Fireworkz spreadsheet files into HTML pages, but if you have any suggestions for future applications please contact me as I'm always looking for ideas for new programming projects.

WebAnim8r doesn't have to be used for only animations. Its powerful script language lets you create custom sprites or icons, such as 3D buttons. This allows you to automate lengthy processes such as changing the colours on icons. You can simply select any colour you require.

line graph

You can import CSV files in order to create bar, line or scatter graphs, with customisable scaling, colours and 'point markers' (small squares shown here).
Even animated graphs!

Tree script

You can build your own commands via completed scripts. For example, a script to draw a tree can be assigned to the new keyword, TREE - which in turn can be called with up to eight parameters, just like other commands, so that you can draw a tree (for example) in your other scripts via just one command, specifying position and size etc. with standard parameters.


Remember Micronet 800 anyone?

A new TELETEXT keyword allows you to directly plot teletext graphics characters (faithfully representing the correct character codes mapped onto the 2x3 grid) so you can reproduce (and animate) retro-style Micronet, Prestel and Teletext style graphics.


Alternatives

  · Sampby Mark Beerling
Samp supports the quick generation of sprite sequences which can then be used to produce an animated GIF. A few special effect functions are built in along with useful general purpose sprite manipulation functions.
