Projects / Frameworks


Frameworks is a stop-motion animation frame capture software application for Linux. Frameworks captures images from a camera and strings them together into an animation. These still PNG images may then be combined into a single video file using other software. Only video4linux webcams are currently supported. Frameworks is designed to be easily used alongside the GIMP Animation Package (GAP). It supports frame averaging, onion skinning, and continuous preview.

Recent releases

  •  19 Dec 2003 12:44

    Release Notes: This release supports cameras using the YUV420P palette (Philips cameras using the "pwc" kernel module). Two minor bugs were fixed; the camera display remains readable even when no camera is detected, and framework no longer hangs on exit.

    •  10 Nov 2003 00:12

      Release Notes: The build system now uses GNU Autotools. Backend work was done to support more color palettes than just RGB24. Preliminary support for YUV420P (Philips Webcam driver cameras) was added (greyscale only).

      •  07 Nov 2003 00:13

        Release Notes: The mmap() portions were improved. Kernel headers are no longer included directly; the necessary header is now included with the source. This fixes some compilation problems.

        •  27 Oct 2003 02:47

          Release Notes: This version fixes a GDK/threads locking bug that caused the display to freeze occasionally. Other minor bugs were corrected.

          •  07 Oct 2003 09:25

            Release Notes: This version adds the ability to open a new camera, and start up even if it can't find a camera . A new "continuous preview" mode allows animated previews of the previous second of animation, followed by a live frame from the camera. An optional speed limit on he live display helps slower computers. Frameworks can now read frames from the camera via mmap() as well as read() (defaults to mmap() if available).
