This important update moves Boats Animator from using NW.js to Electron. This will make the application more reliable and it will be easier to add new features in the future. Most of the changes are behind the scenes but some you may notice are:

  • Easier to install on macOS and Linux - you can now download .dmg and .deb packages
  • A more "native" feel - Boats Animator now looks and feels more like the other programs on your computer
  • New documentation - check out the revamped user guide for Boats Animator
  • Better security - all web links are now HTTPS and the app integrates better with macOS and Windows' camera access settings

@charlielee charlielee released this Oct 21, 2020

The first new version of Boats Animator for 2020. Hooray! The main new features are export to video, short play and you don't need to change directory every time you start the app anymore.

Improvements

  • Adds export to video option
  • Adds short play option
  • Captured frames now have a unique id in their file names that is generated on start up. So you don't need to change directory every time the app is loaded. This removes the risk of overwriting data and removes the need for the The current save directory already contains captured frames!warning message.
  • Fix bugs with confirm take
  • Updated about window
  • Upgrade to nwjs-packager 1.x (brings better macOS compatibility amongst other things)

Full change-log between 0.9.2 and 0.10.0
