Almost, as in it's not released for Windows quite yet?
Last time I checked, the Windows release date was February 2003, so we should be expecting it soon...
I'm certainly looking forward to using it... Anyone here used it for Linux and want to write a review of it?
February 25th, 2003, 07:11 AM
u can view it in the
VFXTalk Forum » VFXTalk Community Lounge »Site Feedback
there are there links of the reviews, by the way i use it 4 macosx
an x systems, linux, irix >>> by the moment a litle tricky to install
but bunch of tools and great performance, so its indeed a great offer against photoshop, and like that photoshop could not handle with the same imgs as the FilGimp does or even Gimp....
if u want a review i will do in depth... mawybe an comparison between photoshop and Gimp or FilmGimp ..
What is Film Gimp?
Film Gimp is an image retouching and painting tool with features similar to GIMP and Adobe Photoshop. Film Gimp, GIMP, and Photoshop are general purpose tools that can be used in many ways. However, each tool's design is recognized as appealing especially to a particular type of user. Photoshop is recognized as a tool for print artists. GIMP is recognized as a tool for Web artists. And, Film Gimp is recognized as a tool for motion picture artists. That's not to say Film Gimp can't be used for print and Web tasks. Anyone who wants to retouch or paint images can use Film Gimp. What it means is that satisfying motion picture studio users is Film Gimp's primary mission.
What is the "Film" part of Film Gimp? What makes Film Gimp better for working with 35mm film? Film Gimp has vast dynamic range: 16-bits per channel (64-bit RGBA). That's more range than can be displayed on a computer monitor (24-bit RGB), but can make a visible difference when working with film. Film scanners have more range than monitors, and can capture a superior image from film. Even with images that started in 8-bit, conversion to 16-bit can preserve color information that can otherwise be lost during the editing process. Such loss of fidelity can be visible as banding when an image is eventually printed back to film or blown up to higher magnification for a still print.
The extended dynamic range of Film Gimp appeals not just to 35mm cinematographers, but to 35mm still photographers as well. Still photographers can think of Film Gimp as having many more F-stops of range, of being capable of capturing much more subtle nuances of color in a vast blue sky for instance. Film Gimp handles 8-bit, 16-bit linear, and 16-bit float images.
Digital photographers and videographers use lossy compression methods such as JPEG or MPEG. For a small tradeoff in picture quality, the files can be made much smaller. That's why JPEG and MPEG are such popular formats on the Web. However, for highest image quality, artists use uncompressed or losslessly compressed images such as TIFF, RLE, Cineon, and EXR. Film Gimp supports many formats in this realm -- formats unfamiliar to the typical Photoshop or GIMP user. Film Gimp includes support for JPEG, PNG, and other common formats.

Thanks for the tip about your post in the Site Feedback forum...
I don't know how I missed that one.....
February 25th, 2003, 09:17 AM
no problem hugh stay cooll :: only for curiosity>>>>
look to this free soft.... but still working on it:D
February 25th, 2003, 09:39 AM
I've seen that before, and it looks somewhat limited in terms of compositing....
Only 2 layers, for example, and various other things that I would look up on their site, but have to rush off in about 2 mins, so can't....
Has anyone used it?

i think you should have more Scooby-Doo photos of
Scooby-Doo because i was doing a assiment and i could not fine one photo just him to do it one him
Seriously tho, is this thing OS independent, cos I wouldn't mind having a look at it if there's something that works under windows?

The bit-precision can't be the only thing that FilmGimp is about, and it's not that uncommon these days, but I've heard nothing other than that and the necessary frame-control. Is there rotosplines for example, can you actually animate anything? I've tried Gimp a couple of time during its evolution, but I don't think it cuts the cheese! I figure FilmGimp will be a cheap way for companies to bring in a bunch of runners doing tedious rotowork on free software :D that is if FGimp actually starts cutting that cheese soon, but what else could it be used for? I hope it evolves, but it's gonna take time!
I'm still waiting for something to happen, until then I wont get too exited ;)

first : http://filmgimp.sourceforge.net/docs/history.filmgimp.html
seconfd : wich software do u work for painting???>>> how much does it cost? >>>is that u that pay it????
so... FilmGimp: Free ;)
Adobe Photo$hop : too much for the same
FormVision Eclipse : also too much:::l
Others::: a litle more...
third: u r an shake forum moderator so u have facilities to work on script-fu (gimp=script language) i think u should reconsider...
and also coding filgimp or gimp to suit your work
fourth: i agree with u its not the fianl v and never will be one..
because the open source never have an app like micro$oft "bug free":D
do u know that Amazon Paint is sourcecoded by GIMP...lol
stay free ...and open source
and sorry to our viking fx master :D >>> u can see the release dates on filmgimp.sourceforge.net

On a different note, out of curiousity, does either of FilmGimp and Linux support wacom boards and pressure sensitivity? All I've ever seen is this (http://people.mandrakesoft.com/~flepied/projects/wacom/) :)
February 26th, 2003, 11:08 AM
Thanks for that link - I was looking for a driver for my tablet under Linux...
And I have no idea whether GIMP supports them (and pressure sensitivity) - this will be a big issue in whether I move over to using the GIMP (and Linux in general...)
February 26th, 2003, 11:38 AM
Indeed it will..! Let us know if you get the wacom running in linux :)
February 27th, 2003, 06:46 AM
follow this links >>>
i have a intuos and an graphire running under Red Hat
yep full support, or not...:D
February 27th, 2003, 07:59 AM
Great - thanks for those...
I'm in the process of downloading the RH7.3 isos, and will look through all that stuff as soon as it's installed....
