Ah, then I misapprended the jist of what you were saying there.

Is GIMP a full screen program yet? Last I used it was many years ago and it was just a little thing with not much to it. Frankly it drove me nuts. But sometimes that doesn't take much.

My first version of Gimp was already pretty indepth, and quite good competitively with PhotoShop. In fact at the time I was so overwhelmed with it that I eventually uninstalled it in favor of the more watered down PSP 7. The latest version has almost all the features that PhotoShop does and can use many of the same plugin types. I still am overwhelmed but this time I plan to keep it and upgrade it from time to time.


I just watched a tutorial showing how to use two renders from a DAZ Studio scene, each just at a slightly different camera angle (to simulate stereoscopic vision), then opening Gimp and importing both images and editing them to create an image meant to be viewed through colored 3D glasses. I plan to give it a try, because the video makes it really simple to do. Will need to find a pair of those glasses though. Of course that is not so big a problem that I cannot at least try the technique without them.
DAZ Studio, Bryce, Poser, Wings 3D, Howler, Blender, PSP, Hexagon, MSO PowerPoint & Word, just a few of the programs I use.

GIMP may be equal to Photoshop as far as image editing software goes, but I don't think you've seen what CS5 and CS6 are capable of doing these days. It can create web-pages, perform repetitive actions over several images, paint on 3D models that you can import into it and lot more stuff.

PSP is up to version 9X now. I've not seen or used it, but I do know PSP 7 could do a few things better than Photoshop, plus you could create little animations with it if you have Animation Shop.

Not sure about all that can be done with the latest version of Gimp. I only use it to do things I've learned about it.


I have PSP 9, but not 9X, although I do have Animation Shop too. I have not used it yet though as I am not all that well educated in animation. I have so many applications that i use already and learning to use (to me) new ones winds up on the slow learning track. That is because I tend to want to cram on such things and I get burned out. So I purposefully put such things on that slow track to avoid that. Eventually I'll get to that.


I think Gimp actually can be used to do animations also, if I recall what I think I heard in that YouTube video correctly. He said you could use it to do a 3D animation you can watch using those glasses. Of course it may just be DAZ Studio that is used for that part of it, but it seems that would be really tedious if you had to edit every frame in say a few second animation at 25 to 30 frames per second. So it would seem that doing the actual animation in Gimp would be more desirable. Either that, or you do Batch Editing to make the processing go faster.
