Pencil 0.4.4b

Pencil 0.4.4b for Mac is out.
Some new features...
Vector graphics are now saved in separate files. You should see an increase of speed when saving big documents, since Pencil now saves only the changes.
The window can be made translucent (as requested)

The paint brush has new options in bitmap mode:
1) preserve alpha of the image (as requested). This makes it possible to change add some gradient to a fill, or change smoothly the colours of a linework (if the layer contains only linework)

2) "stop at contours", the paint brush detects the linework. This might be useful to fill shape which are loosely closed - where the paint bucket would inevitably fail.

I believe the QuickTime export should work fine on the Mac, now.

(For other platforms, someone please compile the source code and I'll put the binary online.)

PS- sorry, Chrisj, I had to delete your reply in order to move this message here.

Re: Pencil 0.4.4b

Hi,
I am new to Mac, I have never used one and don't know anything at all about them, I am sorry to say. However, I have just bought a MacBook Pro with the intention to learn animation as I intend to produce a short animation in the very near future. Could you or anybody be kind enough to guide as to which version should I download please. I hope to share my works with all of you soon.
Many thanks
Randy

Re: Pencil 0.4.4b

I submitted to the urge of a try. It doesn't work without meeting a lot of dependencies.

Pascal is not the original creator, but he is the current maintainer, so the answer would be "Yes."
