New version of GeoKone.NET is now Live! Read more for Release Notes.
I don’t normally announce .0x versions, but this release deserves one, as it brings a new polyform parameter that allows completely new visions to be created: Opacity. It is now possible to set the opacity for all the polyforms, allowing see-through formations. This is exciting, as GeoKone now can create even gradient forms and much more smoother and interesting colors from interaction of different colors on top of each other.
Opacity can be set for each individual Polyform, 0 is totally clear and 255 fully opaque. All previous scenes will have their opacities set to 255. Unfortunately transparent drawing is slower than opaque forms, so with complex scenes it can get pretty slow if there is high amount of transparency. More motivation to start working on that native version :)
The keyboard shortcuts ‘f’ and ‘v’ can be used to increase/decrease opacity!
High Resolution Images Exported as 2x
Seems like Safari and Chrome still crash a lot when the scene is complex, this is probably something to do with the URL getting so long that these browsers can’t handle it. Firefox seems to be (at least on Mac Os X) the only browser that can handle large amounts of URL data images without crashing.
Undo has also been disabled for now, as it didn’t work reliably enough and only slowed down performance.
