This script helps create simple rotating animations.
It asks for the desired number of animation frames (between 4 and 24 frames in increments of 4), and generates the corresponding number of layers each containing a rotated version of the image's background layer.
A choice of animation motion (circular and pendulum) is provided.
It has been tested in Gimp 2.6.11 on GNU/Linux and 2.8 on Windows XP.
Released v1.11 on 2012-07-02.
* Added pendulum motion
* fixed issue from lingering test code
AnimStack is a collection of tools to simplify creating animations in GIMP. It makes heavy use of Layer Groups, introduced in GIMP 2.8.
A simple example of a problem this script might solve: you have an animation, but you want to put some text on top of it. Normally you would have to add text to every frame manually, but with AnimStack this task is completely automated. AnimStack is perfect for post-processing your GIF animations and adding various simple effects to them.
Does exactly what you expect it to do. Every top-level layer group is merged (careful: only visible layers in each layer group are merged). The layer tree becomes completely flat. Why is this useful? Well, I made it because it is impossible to convert an image to Indexed mode or export it as animated GIF if it contains any layer groups. And layer groups are extremely useful for animated GIFs. It's a conundrum! And this script helps automate the process somewhat.
2013-03-01 - Minor revision upgrade:
updated the nuvola-tools-install-commands.sh to work with the more recent Debian Wheezy (debian testing)
You will be able to use nuvola tools on a more recent system and it's likely to work in Ubuntu too!
NUVOLA TOOLs offer advanced grayscale cleaning and processing functions for your scans,
automates removal of shadows, dust and toner particles typical of less than perfect prints ,
screentones removal through automated shape and topology recognition and much more!
GIMP 2.8 Python Plug-in.
Copy and move the selected area to a new layer in the same position.
This function is similar to the functions with the same names in Photoshop, and more powerful. Unlike them, it can copy/cut content, not just from one layer, but also from the layer groups.
In Photoshop, this is not possible :)
1. Close GIMP if it is open.
