GarageGames SpriteWorks2 Retail

SpriteWorks is an fast and easy solution for creating animated sprite sheets for 2D games from existing 3D models and it's now available in the GarageGames store. SpriteWorks was created last year, based on the XNA graphics framework. As such, it required VisualStudio 2008 and the XNA Framework to be installed as well. But no longer.

SpriteWorks2 is a complete overhaul from the ground up. It's foundation has shifted from XNA to T3D and comes with a new look and a lot of great improvements. But the process of taking 3D models and generating animated sprite sheets for 2D games is the same. Existing customers are using SpriteWorks to create art for iPhone, TGB, and Torque X 2D games.

Collada 3D Support
One of the biggest features is support for the Collada 3D format. Collada is a popular 3D format that's supported by every major 3D editor, including 3D Studio Max, Maya, XSI, and Blender. You can easily load your 3D models into SpriteWorks via Collada export.

New Lighting
SpriteWorks2 also offers even better lighting support. Now you can change the brightness and color of the light source, resulting in unique rendering effects. You can also use a mouse to drag the source light into position. You can also apply post-process image effects, such as blur, to add even more to your sprite sheets.

Normal Mapping
Bring new lighting depth to your shader-based 2D games by enabling the normal mapping feature. This feature generates an additional animated spritesheet that is with normal mapped.

Image Blur
SpriteWorks2 also includes image post-processing effects, such as image blur. Even more visual effects, such as glow and cartoon rendering are in the works.

Quick Launch
SpriteWorks2 also adds a faster way to open to your DTS models by integrating with the Windows shell. Simply open Windows explorer and double-click any .dts file to open it up.

Torque 3D Preview
SpriteWorks also serves as a low-cost solution for previewing 3D art assets and animations ready for the new Torque 3D game engine.

New Usability
Lastly, overall usability was closely reviewed and improved to make it as easy and efficient as possible to bring in 3D models, pose them, and produce animated sprite sheets. In addition to the existing camera sliders, you can drag the mouse around to move and rotate the model into position.

SpriteWorks started as an XNA project last year and migrated to a Torque 3D project. Game developer Daniel Hopkins was a tremendous help in getting key functionality transitioned over in a very short period. He's a fantastic Torque 3D developer and deserves a ton of credit for his contribution.

The Future of SpriteWorks
SpriteWorks2 is definitely a huge leap forward from the original release, but it's also just the beginning. The plan to quickly move over from XNA to T3D was meant to open new development possibilities, such as Mac OS platform release that is already in the works. We also plan to support for even more 3D formats, and enabling new post-process effects.

"Use drop shadows for icon labels on the Desktop"
"Go to Control Panel > System, > Advanced" that's all right till there. You can go there through a shortcut. Just select properties of my computer and select advanced tab.
But there is no "Performance area" in my computer. Which Windows are you using?

What he actually means by Performance area is that you can see three "areas" Performance, user profiles, startup and recovery under that, right? Click settings in the performance region.
I have that ticked, and did not have my icons transparent. Curious, I unticked it. What I got was hideous blue rectangles under each icon name on the desktop. So what 'transparent' actually means the names of the icons.

Royalty-Free Icons for Business and Financial Software
By: Victor Ivlichev.
Developing a software or Web-based product for a business? Today's standards in graphical user interface design dictate the use of matching, easily recognizable icons even in database-style financial applications.
Ordering images from a professional design studio or hiring a designer to draw the icons in-house can give you a nice-looking set, but associated costs and possible delays limit the effectiveness of this method. Ordering royalty-free icons from the Web might be a better idea if you are on a budget and/or have tight timeframe or a deadline is approaching. Ready-made icons are handily available for immediate purchase, allowing you to save significant investments due to the usually low costs of images. Before ordering, you can always preview what you are about to get, and have an option to choose among dozens of offerings.
The collection of Accounting Toolbar Icons includes more than 150 accounting and bookkeeping icons tailored to applications and Web-based products for bookkeepers, accountants and financial services. Designed as a matching set, Accounting Toolbar Icons are perfect for making professional, uniform looks throughout software applications or Web sites.
The collection of royalty-free financial icons includes more than 150 downloadable icons such as the Dollar icon, Money icons, and images depicting various financial objects and symbols. There are icons for Accounting and Bookkeeping, multiple icons representing the world's currencies such as Dollar icon, Pound icon, Euro and Yen icons. Financial icons include Money Bag, Exchange, Currency Conversion, Loan, Capital Gain, Insurance, and many other symbols for the financial sector. There are icons for Report and Book, Folder Index and Documents, Folder and Schedule among many others.
Accounting Toolbar Icons are available in a wide variety of sizes, including 16x16, 20x20, 24x24, 32x32, and 48x48 pixel versions. The set of financial icons contains icons with all color depths, including semi-transparent True Color and 256-color icons.
