Thank you for information.
It seems exist many knob-tools more than I've thought.

I decided to develop special tool for knob because I found the GIMP's rotation for small area has some trouble.
It seems unsatisfact pixel accuracy. (and of course the work was very tiresome)

Anyway, I'll try to finish my tool :tu:

Keep up the good work. I've been playing around with the program, and it's very straightforward and easy to use.

I like the idea and the simplicity. I would use this tool - assuming the number of frames will be user-defined.

What I would ask for in the final version is the option to stitch horizontally as well as vertically. DIBTools (Delphi) likes horizontal stitching , you see :-)

Is there such a thing as a "surface" renderer? I've noticed a lot of VST UI's have a nice surface for the controls. It's usually something with a plastic or metallic vibe to it.

I haven't tried, but is it possible to get this to work with Painshop Pro 8 or The Gimp? I don't have Photoshop.

... that's right, but there's also a fully functional 30 day free tryout trial version available, just for rendering : https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/inde ... =photoshop ...
