Imagemagick generate.c produces crappy images under windows
I'm not sure if this is just a windows issue or if it is because I am using a newer imagemagick. I'm using the latest binaries for windows from here: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows
Anyrate there are 2 issues which I've found work-arounds for and hopefully these changes won't screw everyone else on other OS
1) calls like
convert tmp%d.png \\( +clone -channel A -separate +channel -negate -background black -virtual-pixel background -blur 0x3 -shade 120x55 -contrast-stretch 0%% +sigmoidal-contrast 7x50%% -fill grey50 -colorize 10%% +clone +swap -compose overlay -composite \\) -compose In -composite tmp%d.png
I have to change to
convert tmp%d.png ( +clone -channel A -separate +channel -negate -background black -virtual-pixel background -blur 0x3 -shade 120x55 -contrast-stretch 0%% +sigmoidal-contrast 7x50%% -fill grey50 -colorize 10%% +clone +swap -compose overlay -composite ) -compose In -composite tmp%d.png
Because with the
it complains about
no decode delegate for this image format `\('
and creates blurry blue images
It also doesn't like RGB and Alpha colors definitions in styles.conf, so I've had to hack my style.conf to use named colors. It gives errors like:
convert.exe: unable to open image `'#00ff0080'': No such file or directory @ err or/blob.c/OpenBlob/2641.
I'm going to work on that a bit more to see if I can still keep RGB/RGBA or at least map it to same colors as before or come up with REALLY bizarre colors.
Unfortunately don't have Hudson around to complain when I screw Linux users. Hopefully will have a Debian replacement soon, but I want to get Winnie able to build everything except possibly the PDF before I explore unknown Debian waters.
