Macaw_1 - the pixel index viewer

Author File Description

File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Screenshot:
Dear ladies and getlemen,

the program "Macaw_1" is a window-application,
that allows you to browse fo a particular bmp-file and then to explore it pixel-by-pixel, concerning cootdinates, index
numbers, and RGB-value.

Advantages:
1. It is the only tool of such kind (so far I know);
(except the built-in tool used in M.P.S., a little different from Macaw).
2. A good demonstration of power using Matlab;
3. User-friendly.

Known disadvantages:
1. Needs MCR installed.
2. It is a bit slow.
3. Shows RGB in range 0.00 ÷ 1.00. Therefore, loss of precision.

Purpose:
exploring extracted bmp-frames; preparing bmp-frames to be inserted in
SLP-s; developing a CVT-file (a palette remap file); etc.

Target group:
modders.

Tools used:
Matlab 7.12, and some auxiliary progs.

NB:
in order to run this exe-file you must install the "Matlab Compliler Runtime" (MCR) on you machine. It can be downloaded free on
http://www.mathworks.com/products/compiler/mcr/index.html.
MCR itself doesn't affect your Operation System and doesn't torture your brain.

Feel free to contact me if any questions.
Den cekke It's a nice program, but I don't see how it does anything more than paint or photoshop.

Hi. I don't know much about Photoshop...
But MS Paint does NOT show you the pixel index. Does it ?..
Den cekke Not like that. I guess this program is useful to people who don't have Photoshop. But like I said nice work. Did you write the code yourself? If you did I can give you some suggestions to add to the program.

Den cekke, yes, I wrote it myself on Matlab,
the m-script was pretty short: only 8 strings :)
then I compiled it with Deploytool .
What suggestions do you have ?
Den cekke Maybe you can implement some methods that can help automate the usual work.

What do you mean? I don't get it.
I think, Macaw doesn't contain routine tasks for the user that could be avoided.

About the source m-code :

Macaw_1.m

[FName, Adress]=uigetfile('G*.bmp', 'Select a bmp-frame!', 'G:\');
A=importdata([Adress, FName]);
X=A.cdata;
T=A.colormap;
colormap(T);
image(X);
impixelinfo;
H=gcf;
set(H, 'Name', ['Macaw : ' FName]);
%grid on;
