Synthclipse 1.0.2 released. Downloads.

Changelog:
   - Finally, "#ifdef SYNTHCLIPSE #include <synthclipse> #endif" declaration is NOT needed in shaders!
     For old projects you must fix their include paths to enable this. To do so, choose from the main menu
     "Synthclipse -> IDE Fixes... -> Fix include paths..." and select there all projects
. For new projects
     this is not needed. 
   
   - Added macro "SYNTHCLIPSE_ONLY" ("#define SYNTHCLIPSE_ONLY") added to every shader before build.
     It allows to turn on/off some code only when run shaders in Synthclipse. (see this section
     for more details).
   
   - Fixed Fragmentarium importer. Now presets with "Target" camera value are imported correctly.

Synthclipse 1.0.1 released. Downloads.

Changelog:
   - Improved Fragmentarium importer (now key frames from 3Dickulus version are automatically imported to the Timeline)
   - Improved Shadertoy importer (added "sample" keyword and double underscore "__" replacer)
   - Enabled animation playback in the Progressive Mode (subframes aren't calculated during playback)
   - Added screenshot dialog with preview and option to save image to file
   - Added Assembler code preview (nVidia only) (Thanks, 3Dickulus!)
   - Added Ctrl + Shift Free Camera rotation mode. Works like rotation with Shift only but always using Up vector equal to (0, 1, 0).
   - Added "subframeCount" build-in uniform variable
   - Fixed bug with incorrect time when recording a picture (it was dependent on animation option "Start from current time", now it is not)
   - Fixed bug with not fully correct preset save when Timeline was turned off right after it was turned on and some key frames was recorded
   - Fixed recording cancellation error
   - Fixed Rotation UC spinner bug
   - Timeline: Fixed double step of the next/previous frame buttons when clicking only once
   - Timeline: Added "Slerp" interpolation for the Rotation 3D Uniform Controls. (In fact Linear interpolation was already using Slerp under the hood, but now Linear is truly Linear and Slerp is Slerp)
   - JSX API: Added missing functions getActiveAttrib(), getActiveUniform() from the WebGL 1.0 Spec
   - Synthclipse distribution switched to Eclipse 4.5 (Mars)

Synthclipse has enough features, is stable and mature enough, and it is the right time (today is  my birthday :]).
Here is Synthclipse 1.0.0, ladies and gentlemen Wink . Downloads.

It's been almost 2 years since I started development of Synthclipse (all has begun around September 2013). It's been fun creating
such tool but now I need to get rest a little from the project. I need to write more shaders, less shader tools Smiley
Of course I will fix Synthclipse bugs and release from time to time a new version but I will be less eager to add a new feature.
At least for some time.

Changelog:
   - Added "Repeat Mode" for key frames in the Timeline
   - Added "Synchronize animation time with audio" toolbar item to the Audio Player View
   - Added "Estimated end time" label to the Recording dialog
   - Added system task bar progress indicator while recording animations
   - Added "Synth-Edit" perspective (Just because two perspective is not enough)
   - Timeline Settings: fixed bug with invalid key frame scaling when changing FPS with "Lock duration" mode
   
I've also updated whole Synthclipse Home Page. Especially I added few section to the User Guide (like Animations).

Synthclipse 0.9.15 released. Downloads.

Changelog:
   - Added key frame animation support with a Timeline
   - Added "Synth-Anim" perspective. Useful when working with the Timeline
   - Added option for storing presets in a separate file ('<preset file="name.preset" />' command). Enabled by default
   - Added support for Shadertoy audio shaders. (Audio shaders have ".sau" file extension)
   - Improved Shadertoy importer (Solved problems with keywords "smooth", "filter", "char" and functions named "texture". Also missing channels are now added.)
   - Fixed recording cancellation error
   

   







To test Shadertoy audio try importing this great shader: Music Toolbox - by nimitz. Audio support works on Windows and Linux. Sorry Mac folks.

The Timeline is based on a timeline included in Ultra Fractal (though there are small differences), so people familiar with UF shouldn't have problems creating animations with it. For those who are not I will write an animation tutorial on the Synthclipse official page. But don't expect it before 2-3 weeks. I need to finish something first and then I will update whole site.
Nonetheless creating animations is pretty intuitive so don't waste time waiting for the official guide Wink

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT:


Synthclipse 0.9.16 released. Downloads.

It is a small release, mostly focused on improving animation recording.

Changelog:
   - Added "Use timeline settings" (FPS and duration) option to the Recording View. Enabled by default.
   - Added "Start from current time" option
     to the Rendering View. When enabled recording starts with time selected in the Rendering or Timeline View.
     Disabled by default (Previously it was implicitly enabled).
   - Added ".sau" template for the New Synthclipse File wizard
   - Changed display format for time in the Rendering View (Now it is of form "time / duration", eg. "00:00.000 / 01:23.000")
   - Changed duration units from seconds to milliseconds in the Recording View
   - Changed default template for ".stoy" files to match Shadertoy format
   






--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT2:

Synthclipse 0.9.17 released. Downloads.

Changelog:
   - Added "Record current state" functionality to the Timeline
   - Added automatic check for updates
   - Added "Go to destination directory" button in the Recording View
   - Fixed subtle bug when recording key frame animations (some frames ware blurred)
   - Fixed time formatting error when displaying less than 100 ms
   - Timeline: fixed bug with mixed presets (with key frames and without key frames). Now key frames are only showed for presets which they belongs to.
   - Timeline: fixed bug with wrong slider values after entering edit mode of a key frame
   - Timeline: fixed "show only recorded items" behaviour after reloading a shader
   - Timeline: changed next/previous key frame order from vertical to horizontal

   








I've also improved a little description and behavior of old key frames recording:



If no changes ware made, a warning dialog will appear:

Synthclipse 0.9.14 released. Downloads.

Changelog:
   - Added "Rebuild upon save" feature - quick rebuild without reinitializing Uniform Controls View, triggered after save
   - Added "Reset group" buttons to the Uniform Controls View and redesigned group headers
   - Added "Go to file" menu in the Uniform Controls View
   - Fixed and improved Fragmentarium importer (now all included files are automatically imported).
   - Fixed java.lang.StackOverflowError while recording
   - Fixed run configuration bug: now if shader file is deleted, its run configuration is deleted as well.
   - Removed some error message duplication
   - Improved shader error message printing in JSX scripts
   - JSX API: Added new class - Arrays - for converting JavaScript arrays to Java arrays and buffers.
      The class also contains some useful methods for creating and printing Java arrays
   - JSX API: Added new functions:
      - gl.deleteBuffer()
      - gl.deleteTexture()
      - gl.deleteFramebuffer()
      - gl.deleteVertexArray()
      - gl.deleteRenderbuffer()

Synthclipse 0.9.13 released. Downloads.

Changelog:
   - Redesigned Uniform Controls View. Now it uses "accordion panel" which saves more space. Also its state
      (which sections are opened and the scroll position) is remembered between successive builds of the same shader.
   - Added "Take screenshot" action to the Synthclipse main menu and to the Viewport View's toolbar.
      The action can be also triggered by a key shortcut.
   - Improved CheckBox Uniform Control Widget
   - Changed frame time units from seconds to milliseconds in the Rendering View
   - Fixed Shadertoy importer
   - Fixed "GLSL Sandbox" importer





As of including JVM with Synthclipse I've abandoned this idea. I'm targeting software developers so it shouldn't be to difficult for them to install Java 8 environment. Especially with flag "-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.8" which shows an error while trying to open the Eclipse with older version of Java.

Synthclipse 0.9.12 released. Downloads.

Changelog:
    - Added mouse wheel support to slider components. Now one can use mouse roll to change value of any slider.
    - Fixed mouse release behaviour in Shadertoy shaders
    - Fixed iChannelResolution uniform variable handling
    - Fixed Fragmentarium importer (there was no new lines after texture uniforms)
    - Added support for HDR texture format (experimental)   
    - Added parsing of GLSL program log messages (apart from shader log messages) - useful with NVidia video cards
    - Made Audio Player View more compact
    - Added new functions to JSX API:
        - Synthclipse.refreshControls()
        - Synthclipse.removeControls()
        - Synthclipse.removeAllControls()
8  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2015-01-22 19:46:37
@cylab
Thanks for the tip. I will definitely add "-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.8" to eclipse.ini. As of how to set JVM used by Eclipse, it is already in my guide, or more precisely in the FAQ.

@Roquen
Maybe you are right. I'll take a look at this solution. I don't know if I will do this in Synthclipse 0.9.12 (which I'm plannig to release this weekend), but 0.9.13 is viable target.

Synthclipse 0.9.11 released. Downloads.

Changelog:
    - Added "Insert Color" feature. Now one can insert a color using Color Chooser directly to a code
      (Using shortcut Ctrl + Shift + 1 or selecting dedicated popup menu element in the shader editor).
     Moreover holding Ctrl key and pressing LMB on any triple or quadruple positive float numbers in the shader editor will show Color Chooser dialog.
    - Fixed shadertoy exporter (direction 3D was incorrectly exported as vec2 instead of as vec3)
    - Fixed inputting numbers problem in Camera View's text fields.
    - Improved Direction 3D Tool and Rotation 3D Tool. Now should be a little easier to point them in a right direction.
    - Improved Color Chooser. Window is now moveable and resizeable. Also added input type options: Decimal (0.0..1.0) and Integral (0..255)
    - Added additional info (e.g. size, type) to texture preview in the Texture Uniform Control

I've finally build native binaries for the Linux. Now one can play a music or capture an audio input on the Linux as well. I've tested x86_64 binaries on Mint 17 Linux distribution. 32-bit version haven't been tested by me yet. Hope it also works.

The new files:

synthclipse-0.9.8.1-eclipse-luna-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz
synthclipse-0.9.8.1-eclipse-luna-linux-gtk.tar.gz
synthclipse-0.9.8.1.zip


can be found in Synthclipse 0.9.8 directory.

Linux native libraries are only changes between 0.9.8 and 0.9.8.1 versions, so I haven't build 0.9.8.1 version for Windows or Mac OS.

18  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-08-27 22:02:29
Thanks for posting the release info, Roquen!  Smiley

I've also added a new demo: Parallax Mapping, and I've added a new troubleshooting question to the Synthclipse FAQ: Why there is no Synthclipse perspective after first Eclipse startup?
19  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-08-15 09:37:27
New release: Synthclipse 0.9.3

Changelog:
- Code Preview is now available for GLSL programs created in JSX script (by ProgramFactory or Synthclipse.loadFragx()) - useful when using "#include" directive in GLSL shaders.
- Fixed handling texture Uniform Controls in programs created in JSX scripts
- Synchronized UCs are now printed in the Console View afer program/shader is loaded
- Fixed spherical camera bug: When in scripts one set spherical camera and showed the Camera View, Free camera was always selected

Although with little delay, I've created synthclipse-demos repository as suggested by Roquen.
For now there is only one example but in future, certainly, there will be more.
20  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-08-11 07:42:49
That sounds like really good idea. Especially with build-in git support in the Eclipse. I will create repo with additional examples today or tomorrow. Thanks for the advice!

If anyone of you have created some interesting example/demo and would like to share it with others, please let me know, I will put it on the repository.
21  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-08-11 06:06:06

Changelog:
- Added ComboBox Uniform Control. It is available in Fragx shaders, as well as in JSX scripts. (see screenshot)
- Changing Multisampling mode in the Preferences now doesn't require Eclipse restart
- Fixed "Restart group", "Restart all" buttons in the Uniform Controls View
- Fixed missing log messages with levels below INFO (TRACE, DEBUG)
- Fixed double Uniform Controls View when Viewport View was hidden
- Added links to shader errors in the Console View, for shaders created in JSX scripts using ProgramFactory


22  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-08-05 16:14:38
Thanks Smiley
23  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-08-05 10:18:05
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll definetely cosider distributing Synthclipse/Eclipse with embeded JVM.

As of http://tooll.io - it looks very promising. It could be an inspiration for Synthclipse 2.0 features.
24  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-08-05 06:39:01
Synthclipse 0.9.1, quick fix release.

Changelog:
- Fixed Shadertoy importer (although music generation is still not supported)
- Fixed incorrect sub-frame rendering (seen in GraphPlotter.fragx shader)
- From now on JavaScript nature (Eclipse IDE detail) will be added to every new Synthclipse project during creation

Downloads.
25  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-07-29 22:54:29
It has been a long time since last update but finally I'm ready to release a new version of my application. Synthclipse 0.9 is ready for downloads.



What's new:
- Added JavaScript (JSX) scripting support
- Added support for other types of shaders (Geometry, Tessellation, Compute)
- Added Run Configurations support (last few shaders are now remembered in the "Run" menu)
- Added more sophisticated Color Uniform Control
- Lots of little bug fixes

The list maybe isn't very long, considering amout of time since last release, but bringing scripting support to Synthclipse along with all API and documentation was quite a big task for one person woking on the project only in free time (which lately I don't have much - I'm getting merried next month). Since it was so time consuming I've decided to focus only on one scripting language: JavaScript. Sorry folks, no Java support.

I've jumped from version 0.2 to 0.9 and changed status from alpha to beta since Synthclipse is almost ready for version 1.0. I've decided to not implement new features before releasing version 1.0. Until it happens I'm just going to fix bugs and maybe add some small improvements.

Apart from changes in the application I've updated whole site and started to distribute Synthclipse with Eclipse to simplify installation process.

One more thing worth mentioning is that Synthclipse now requires Java >= 8.

Synthclipse 0.2.1 quick fix release.

Changelog:
- Fixed cube map's path resolving. Added test-cube-map-texture.fragx to the examples.
- Fixed "random" compilation error (sometimes shaders didn't compile)
27  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-03-10 21:09:49
The main scripting API will be in Java. Scripting in JavaScript or Python (Jython really) will be done through javax.scripting.
I hope that there will be not that much to port to JavaScript/Jython with build-in Java-other langages interoperability, offered by javax.scripting API.

I also don't want to support JavaScript and Jython simultaneously. I will choose one when my Java API for scripting will be ready.
28  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-03-10 18:11:21
Synthclipse 0.2.0 with high quality tiled rendering is out. Downloads. Changelog.





Now is the time to implement scripting and support for other shader types (geometry, tessellation, compute). I'll try to make scripting possible in Java, as well as in some other, more dynamic, language (JavaScript or Python probably).
29  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-02-22 15:23:40
Synthclipse 0.1.3 is ready for downloads: https://sourceforge.net/projects/synthclipse/files/synthclipse-0.1.3/.

I've added GLSL Sandbox importer.
30  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Synthclipse - GLSL demo development environment based on Eclipse IDE. on: 2014-02-20 18:00:31
This might be not a bad idea. I will seriously consider it. Right now I'm implementing recording similar to Fragmenterium's. When I finish it (in 2-4 weeks) I will start implementing scripting support. So I have some time to think about it and in the meantime I will do a little research about that and other possible implementations of the scripting.
