The experimental branch of the Tupi source code is always changing, evolving... sometimes it means small fixes, sometimes it means new features but the hard work never stops. Now, the time for the first release of our latest major version (0.2) has come.
After performing the update package for the package 0.1 to 0.2 Tupi do not want to open.
When checking the command line the following message appears:
~ $ Tupi
/ usr / bin / tupi.bin: symbol lookup error: / usr/lib/libtupifwgui.so.1: undefined symbol: _ZNK10QTabWidget14heightForWidthEi
Have reinstalled the package, but without solution.
After several months and a good number of bugs fixed, the revision 0.2 of Tupi is out! The most interesting changes are related to the "Full Screen" mode but I would like to invite you to discover the new features by yourself. Enjoy Tupi! :)
Tupi is a free software/open source tool focused on the creation of vector animation in two dimensions (2D).
The main goal of this project is to provide an easy-to-use application for people of all ages interested in 2D animation design, using different techniques (cuts, stop motion, etc) from a friendly environment.
The final result of the projects can be exported either into video files (OGV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, etc) or image arrays, depending on the user's interest.
As result of the interaction with several digital artists around the world, this week I was working on a new feature: the Storyboard interface.
Time to keep coding! :P
After two weeks of intensive research, finally I finished a functional version of a video export plugin using the Theora library.
Today I submitted a talk of Tupi to the LGM, one of the most important events about Graphics and Free Software around the world. This year the meeting is at Vienna, Austria and I would love to be there to spread the word about Tupi and to show the latest (stunning) features I have been working on.
For now, all I can do is wait and see if my talk is accepted. Please, cross your fingers! :P
This week I got an special email coming from my friend Hassainar Mankada, he is a school teacher in the Kerala's state, India.
Pictures like these make my day :)
