Buttons work today

This day, I've improved the work on buttons : Boxes, Ellipses, Outlines and Polygons objects can be changed in "button objects". It's already possible to add ActionScripts to four button states : press/release/mouse in/mouse out.

It isn't perfect, and the "bitmap buttons" aren't managed.
I hope that ActionScripts and buttons should be finished for first ''0.4" series release in March 2012.
Nevertheless, you'll can play with buttons and Scripts in next release for 0.3 series (31 Jan 2012)

Working on Action Scripts

Today, I've finally integrated to Ella a dialog and a wizzard to manage Action Script (tm) scripting ; the job isn't finished, but there is more 80% done !
Here is a screenshot ;

 I have to complete some routines about "buttons objects" management and specific file options.
This dialog will be present in the next release (31 Janv 2012) but not absolutly usable...

Added a functionnality for objects rotations

Since last days, the menu "rotations" was simplified : only a not very wide choice (+/- 90°, +/- 180°, +270°, 360°) ; Now, you can choose any arbitrary rotation by usage of small dialog box :

Re-enabled an old feature

A simple work, but necessary : I've finished to set the "force aspect ratio" feature. Now, when you draw a box, an ellipse or if you resize, simply hit the <CTRL> key to force the aspect ratio ; now, you can finally obtain direcly perfects squares and circles, not only rectangles/boxes or ellipses.
Here is a screenshot :
Note : only available on revision #38, you shall compile yourself or wait until 31 Janv 2012 for a .DEB package

A new blog for Ella Renaissance and a new feature
As you can see, I've just built this blog. It's time for me to tell you about improvements in Ella-Renaissance Animator.
Today, I've just committed the revision 37 on launchpad. It's now possible to modifiy via Ella a bitmap image object.
Here is the way to do that :
1- select an image/bitmap object
2- <right-click> to show local menu, and choose "modify the image"
3- It's call your prefered Bitmpa editing program, as specifyed in "preferences"

4- modify the image and save it
5- the image is automatically modifiyed under Ella.

Note : this feature isn't yet available for precompiled .DEB packages, you must either compile yourself or wait until 31 Janv 2012
