Guest Blog - Jerome M.

From Jerome:


I was looking for a Mac OSX utility that can export images in the *.ric file format but could not find one. So I decided to write one based on the free and open source image processing software ImageJ.


You can get the software from : http://spriteeditor.blogspot.com/



Comments welcome.

That looks really handy, Jerome. Thank you!

[A couple of more technical questions:

1. Are advanced .ric features available (such as would be used by the Advanced Display Image Block at http://www.teamhassenplug.org/NXT/NXTGAdditions.html )?

And, how did you do the typing overlay on your screencast? Is it a feature new to ScreenFlow v2?]

Wow, now I can finally add images to NXT-G 1.1 on my Mac! That outta' get rid of the urge to get 2.0!

Hmm, that screen recorder program looks cool, maybe I should get it sometime!

@Armagon:
So far only single sprite and copybits are supported. I'll look into the advanced features and try and add them. Thank you for the link.
And yes, the typing overlay is a new screenflow 2.0 feature. You can enable it under Screen Recording Properties/Keyboard panel.

That's Really Good But I don't Have a Mac Can You See If There's One For Windows?

Simple Sprite Editor for Lego NXT is built on ImageJ. ImageJ is a Java app so it will work on any platform with Java.
Instructions:

* 1. Download the platform-specific version of ImageJ from: http://rsbweb.nih.gov/ij/download.html

* 2. Install ImageJ using the provided procedure.

* 3. Run ImageJ and update it to the latest version using the 'Help/Update ImageJ...' menu item, selecting 'daily build' in the dialog that will popup.

* 4. Now replace the 'macros' and 'plugins' folders of your ImageJ folder by those included in the provided osx zip file.
