GDI+ Text to Bezier Intro (CPU Benchmark Tool)

Recommended Posts

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:

@GreenCan: thanks for your feedback.

Added option to benchmark the CPU. Can you post here your results please? Please check out my 1st post how to start it in benchmark mode.

Thanks,

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.

      This project has been discontinued!
       
      Here a small tool I wrote to update my Sysinternal tools collection without the need to download always the whole package or visiting the site to check for updates. I know that there are several tools available (also some tools written in AutoIt) but here another one for the collection. It was good exercise for me to code it.
       
       
        
       
       
      Some files from cannot be downloaded although they are visible on the web site!
       
      Here the download link of the source code only: AutoIt Sysinternal Tools Synchronizer v0.99.6 build 2020-09-23 beta.7z  (1557 downloads previously)
      -=> Requires AutoIt version 3.3.13.20 or higher / tested on Win8.1 real machine and some VMs: Win7 / Vista / Win10
       
      Compiled exe only: @MediaFire
       
      Just select the Sysinternal Tools folder or create one and press the synchronize button to download the selected items. Click on AutoIt label (near to left upper corner) to open menu.
       
      Special thanks to LarsJ, Melba23 and mesale0077 for their help. 
       
      I've still some ideas to implement which are more gimmick related, so it is not finished yet...
      If you want to add your language please check out #Region Language. Thanks. 
       
      Please report any bug or if you have any suggestions.
       
      The language of the tool tip from each of the executable in the left list view were automatically created using Google translator and weren't checked for correctness.

      Just press the lmb and move your mouse. When lmb is released you can adjust the size of the window by dragging the white rectangle to any direction. Rmb will move the marked area.
      Press ESC to get the coordinates of the marked region.
      If you have any improvements, please post it here.
       
      Tested on Win10 x64 only.

      Hello everyone,
      Im developing an script to check the size of all .jpg stored in windows folder.
      The problem is that it doesn´t work properly with rotated images. 
      With _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth() and _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight()  I get the Width and Height of images as if they had not been rotated, and I need to know how they are rotated (orientation and grades).
      Any help is welcome! If more info is needed, please tell. 😁

      This is an update or derivative work of Beege 's Scrolling Line Graph UDF
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/109599-scrolling-line-graph-udf
       
      I noticed a few issues for my use case with the UDF one being that adding a sample required updating the waveform
      High CPU usage went hand in hand with that requirement
      Another issue was just how long updating took to complete
      I've hopefully rectified that with this version
       
      There are a few changes (only 1 line per graph for instance)
      The addition of a function AddSample (uses graphics paths to speed up drawing samples on update) Gridlines are only generated once A sample finished line can be added UpdateGraph allows you to compress the discarded portion of the graph (it looks kinda cool but uses more CPU) Lower Cpu usage Uses real Control Ids - it is a label control underneath so you get click events and can display text when control is disabled Example (Waveform.au3)

      I was inspired by a CSS example to create a procedural graphic without any shader or ray tracing technique.
      Here the result using GDI+ only:
