GDI+ Text to Bezier Intro (CPU Benchmark Tool)

23 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Eukalyptus the GDI+ guru ported the Warp Text to Splines to GDI+ (thread on German forum with examples).

I had the idea to mix his example 7 with some GDI+ elements to create an old school Amiga style intro.

Here how it looks:
post-29844-0-14991200-1367344847_thumb.j

It is very CPU intensive and running with acceptable speed only on newer CPUs.

Download: Text to Bezier Intro.7z (20 downloads previously)

Use latest 7-Zip tool to extract archive properly.

Source Code can be seen here: http://pastebin.com/U24ACRAr

Credits: see scroller.

To start the intro in benchmark mode either change line 23 or compile it and start it with one of following parameter: "/b", "/benchmark" or "/bench".
Results will be written to Benchmark.txt in script dir.


Here some benchmark results:

No problem there is a proverbs in my country that say:

Chi va piano va sano e va lontano

Maybe (?) in english you can traslate it to:

Slow and steady wins the race.

By the way nice work it's impressive what autoit can do, and it's smooth too.

Shouldn't it be "piece of cake" ?

      Hello ladys and gentlemen,
      I have this piece of code and it does what it's supposed to do.
      I want to use it to create an image sequence with frame/image information for compositing overlay.
      However, when i use a transparent background the text starts to look kinda bold or fat.
      I dont know what causes this ugly effect.
      Is there a way to avoid this effect somehow?
      Thanks!

      Here are two functions to provide pixel-accurate height and width dimensions for a given string.
      The more commonly-used _GDIPlus_GraphicsMeasureString built-in UDF is problematic because it returns the width padded by roughly one en-space (for reasons related to the various ways Windows produces anti-aliased fonts).
      These are AutoIt translations of Pierre Arnaud's C# functions, described in his CodeProject article "Bypass Graphics.MeasureString limitations"
      The first is an all-purpose version that takes a window handle, string, font family, font size (in points), style, and (optionally) width of the layout column (in pixels) as parameters.
      The second, more efficient version is intended for applications where GDI+ fonts are already in use, and takes handles to the existing graphics context, string, font, layout and format as parameters.
      Both functions return a two-row array with the exact width [0] and height [1] of the string (in pixels).
      EDIT: (Note that some of the same anti-aliasing measurement issues still apply. I did my best to work around them, but the output of the function may still be off by a pixel or two. Buyer beware.)

      In the code that follows, it appears that DllStructCreate() is not allocating memory in
      $tag = 'byte val['&$iLength&']' . . Static Local $tvalue = DllStructCreate($tag) Running the code below, the problem does not show, but it does show in a much longer script: there _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFile only writes about 30K bytes when it should write about 1MB, which it does when the code is
      $tag = 'char val['&$iLength&']' . . Static Local $tvalue = DllStructCreate($tag) It should write about 1 MB.
      I suggest caution in running the code below. On my PC, it caused a second instance of SciTE to appear at the top left of the Desktop, showing only the title bar, with a width of only approximately 200 pixels! Then rebooting the PC showed this at login. Further, double-clicking on the SciTE shortcut on the Desktop showed SciTE in the same way! (After running Regedit, and searching for SciTE, the shortcut behaves normally.)
      I would appreciate help in determining whether or not there is a bug in DLLStructCreate, preferably a way which does not clobber Windows. Of course, It is possible that there is a bug in my code.
      I have made $tvalue Static in the hope that this might make the code run properly. Doing this did not help.
      My code is based on code written by Authenticity and ChrisL.
