Kwik4.0.1 animated gif and png

A new feature to create animated gif and png files are added to Kwik 4.0.1. Please download the latest Kwik http://kwiksher.com/download/

A sample project is here http://kwiksher.com/daily/assemble0121/GifAnim.zip

Currently this feature only works with Mac.  Window users, please wait a while, I am now working on.

Mac users, first download and install GraphicsMagick. In Mac OS X, you can simply use Homebrew and do:

brew install graphicsmagick

Windows users, you can donwload the installer from http://www.graphicsmagick.org/download.html
GraphicsMagick-X.X.XX-Q8-win32-dll.exe should work for you.

GifAnim sample consists of two pages. page1 just plays a rotated animation and swipe to page2, you can click the image to start a filter animation.


page1:Page Properties > Screen Recording is enabled saving to PNG because page1 starts the animation without a wait request. It captures screen image every 200ms for 10 times as the number of frames

page2 starts the screen recoding when user clicks the moon image.

page2:button > Common > Screen Recording


You need to preview page1 and page2 with  Corona Simulator. The screen recording is processing with Corona API.

Corona Simulator Page2,  you need to click the moon to play the filter animation.

Corona Simulator File > Show Project Sandbox, the recorded png files are found.

You can change the dimension of screen size from Window > View As.  I recorded it with custom devices 270 x 320

Finally you can use the new icon – Assemble PNG files. It is next to compressPNG icon.

console appears and close automatically

In the project folder, under temp folder,  you can find animated gif/png files.
