Ooops. My bad. Downloading too many things today and it went in the wrong hole...

Works great! Thanks for the super-fast updates.

I just downloaded and it is still 1.05.02. I still see the same cover page issue, so I assume your fix didn't get uploaded...
3 Software / FlipSuite and Flipbook Printer / End Frame on: January 17, 2006, 03:31:03 PM
My current project has my niece on a swing. I was very carefully in the Movie Control tab to get a start and end frame that had her face sharp, and not blurred by motion. I then cut the approx. 300 frames down to 50 with the Custom control in Print Options. Doing a Preview, I see the first frame I selected is used, but the last frame is not. I can add more frames to my End Frame, and by trail and error get the one I want on the last card, but is it possible to have your frame-reduction logic use the first and last frames, the equally split up the rest?

Thanks. I think that will be all for today!

Interesting: I saved my project, downloaded the new version, and reloaded the project. The Cover Page image went back to Frame #1. To fix, I had to make the cover page blank, preview, then re-enable the image.

This isn't an issue for me now with the non-numbered first page, but FYI...

Attached is my .ini (renamed to .txt so I could upload it) file. Don't know if it will be of any help...

Hmmm... I did a re-preview and still had the problem. I then unchecked Use First Frame as Image and Use Image, did a Preview and it came up with a blank page for the cover. I then re-checked those two options and re-previewed, and it had the correct frame...

The new version will be great. Prefer not to duplicate frames! Thanks!

So using the Print a Cover Page, Use Image, and Use First Frame as Image options, I get a image without a page number, but it is the first image of the movie file, not the Start Frame image I set up in the Movie Control tab. In my current project, I have a 602 frame movie, but I want to start at frame 197 and end at 478. How can I get 197 as the cover image, or just not get page 1 numbered? Thanks.

Ah! I had the "Stacked Printing" option checked. That's why it looked like everything was 'compressed' to one page. Thanks!

Starting to get to work on my Valentine's project for my nieces, and have a question.

All of my movies are 30 fps, so I really don't want to include every frame. Therefore, I use the 'Custom' frame numbers to only print a subset of the total frames. When I do a preview, it only shows one "composite" page, rather than an actual page. Therefore, I have no idea if I am cutting out too many frames or leaving too many in. Is there a way to preview a sheet will all the cards? I guess I could PDF a run, but that's rather time consuming. Thanks!

Another thought: Have an option to not print the page number on the first page. (You might also want to add an option to turn off the last page for people who reverse the movies).

Saw your Beta update, but haven't had a chance to look at it yet. Thanks!

i think a good alternative to trying to implement a multifont support would be to allow you to easily specify an "image" for cover page and back page; then you could simply make a custom picture with your own fonts and stuff in an image editor and use that.  what do you think? or would that be too inconvenient?

That would be great. Then not only could you do text, but add any graphic...

as for single frame stepping, see the attached picture, there are controls for that.

Ah, didn't see those! Thanks.

Somebody made a 5 fps movie with a Canon 20D camera and its "motor drive" and strung together the resulting JPEG files, so I think your idea '1' would be great.

I just made flipbooks to send out as Christmas cards and only had one real desire: On the Cover Page and Back Page, it would be nice to be able to have different fonts, or at least different sizes. I wanted to say "Merry Christmas" with a large font on the back page and then have my blog URL is a small font.

The software seemed very stable. One change that I would ask for is on the Movie Control pane. There are the 'Play', 'Stop', 'Reverse', 'Forward', and 'Record' buttons. The forward and revers buttons go all the way to the beginning or end of the movie. I think it would be much more useful to have them single step through the frames. You can use the play, stop, and clicking on the time-line to get close, but it is hard to nail a single frame right now.

The Recent Projects menu also has a somewhat odd behavior. If you are working on a project and do a Save As, that new project does not show up in the Recent Projects menu. So, if you close the program, come back at a later date, you have to find the project via the Open command, then it shows up in the Recent Projects.

You should be getting kickbacks from Avery and Epson. I printed 480 "business cards" and almost went through an entire black ink cartridge...
