acidparticle - crossplatform open-source particle editor

Post by hagish »

Image

Due to the lack of a decent linux particle editor for a recent ogre version i decided to write my own one. I hope this tool is usefull for someone :)
The code should be crossplatform (wxwidget) but i developed it using linux and so there is currently not win binary available. But we are working on this ;)

The most basic editing and viewing features are implemented.

Source/Linux Download: http://hagish.schattenkind.net/acidpart ... .1.tar.bz2
Windows Binary: http://hagish.schattenkind.net/acidpart ... le-0.1.zip

Here are some screenshots.

Hey Hagish,

nice that you finished the first version. I like this crazy sun logo, reminds me on a game called Lalalove ;-).
I definitely want to maintain the windows build.

Is this based on the default Ogre Particle System or Particle Universe?

Linux tools?! Nice!

I'll sure check it out soon.

BTW, what did you use to put Ogre in wxWidgets? The wxOgre widget?

How can you call this cross-platform if you haven't actually TESTED it on other platforms?
I'm having a hellacious time getting it to compile on windows.
Ubuntu Studio 13.04 64-bit
GCC 4.8.1
Ogre3D 1.8.1
AMD Athlon FX 8120 @4Ghz
16Gb G.Skill Ripjaws (PC3-12800)
EVGA GeForce 560 Ti FTW

The fact that i don't use linux specific stuff and the used libs are cross platform.

What problems did you encounter?

I compiled a windows binary. You can find the download url in the first post.
There are a few small problems with the win version:
* mouse wheel (zooming) does not work the way it should -> zoom tool buttons
* the tool button tooltips are beneath the ogre render window

Oops, not working here. wxWidgets 2.8.9 and Ogre 1.6.1 on Sabayon. The code compiles and the gui works, nothing is displayed in the ogre render window, not even the background color. But anyway, nice tool, thank's for sharing. :wink:

Definitively doesn't work on with ogre 1.6.1 :? Works fine with 1.4.9. I've been tried to port it to Shoggoth but failed. I think maybe there is something wrong with WxOgreRenderWindow but don't know what. Any idea?

Currently you can only add meshes to the center of the scene.

@durmieu

You could try manually updating the render window in wxogrerenderwindow.cpp, e.g:

Code: Select all

//------------------------------------------------------------------------------
void wxOgreRenderWindow::Update () {
	if (msOgreRoot)
		msOgreRoot->renderOneFrame ();
    if (mRenderWindow)
        mRenderWindow->update();
}

Looks very nice; nice to see another particle editor (and for linux too)! Out of curiosity, how long did this take you?
