My entry for the 'Animation' section is now available for you to download from www.crescentcomputing.co.uk/lainz.

There is one .ZIP file - BGRA Graphics.ZIP - which contains all the Laz generated files plus Screen-shots, .PNG Images, The CorelDRAW! file and a 32bit executable.

As there are no text clues such as TButtons cluttering the main image, I've added a comment at the top of the .PAS file to explain the thinking and controls.

I hope I've remembered everything - you'll no doubt let me know otherwise :)

Nice!

It's show high CPU usage on a I5-4590 @ 3'3 GHZ.

Amazing as always J-G! I've run the .exe under Ubuntu Linux with Wine, despite it shows a shadow around the clock (it's only on Ubuntu) it works very well.

Thought you might like that :)  You know I hold the opinion that if you don't correct, you accept - and that helps no-one.

I'm not sure I would apply that epithet but thanks.

I got a little excited at first read  -  I missed the mention of Wine :)  -  cross-compiling to native Linux and Android are aspirations.

Yes, I think is not possible because your application uses Windows dll's. You must find a cross-platform way doing the same (transparency).

Lots of interesting projects.

I realise I am not keeping up with the contest. How much time left?

From page 1: "So the deadline this year is until 1 September 2017."
From Calendar Magic:
*** Days between Dates - Jun 18, 2017 and Sep 1, 2017 ***
Difference = 75 days = 2 months 14 days

I made glSlideshow - a simple slideshow using Lazarus TOpenGLControl, to show how to use OpenGL to do animations.

My knowledge about OpenGL is very limited, so far the transition effects supported are:
- Slide In
- Fade To Background
- Ribbon

Limitations:
- No support for resizing and full screen preview
- No sound effect
- Max. 5 slides
- Cannot save project
- Cannot remove slide
- Only jpeg image is supported

Hope this code can be useful for someone who wants to learn OpenGL.

--- edit ---

I forgot to mentioned, to be able to compile this code, you need to enable LazOpenGLContext on your Lazarus:
Lazarus main menu > Package > Install/Uninstall Packages > on right panel, select: LazOpenGLContext 0.0.1 > click: Install selection > Save and rebuild IDE.

I built this program using Lazarus 1.6.4 on Linux PC. For Linux users, you need to instal libgl1-mesa-dev library. The code didn't use any OS specific functions, I'm not sure but I think it should be able to compile on Windows machines too.

Hi Handoko, I'm a new Linux user for a month or less, I can't rebuild lazarus when I try to install OpenGL package. Any ideas? I'm on Ubuntu.

What is the problem you're experiencing? Is this "Error while linking"? If yes, get Lazarus 1.8.0RC2, debian packages are fixed there.

Thanks I will do. Seems that also there's a library needed to be installed in the system according to this
http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,35807.msg237482.html#msg237482

Done. That was the missing library.

@Handoko, well done! Thanks for your demo.  :)

You'll also need:
libgtkglext1
libgtkglext1-dev


Usually you'll also need (actually they're usually available in the OS already):
libpng
libpng-dev
zlib1g
zlib1g-dev


and if you need not only OpenGl:
libopenal1
libopenal-dev
libvorbis
libvorbis-dev
libfreetype6
libfreetype6-dev


and of course libgl1-mesa-dev, as Handoko mentioned.

Thanks. Seems a list for a complete application with compressed images and audio, plus text support.

For the Handoko application just using libgl1-mesa-dev was enough, also I didn't change lazarus 1.6 (I will do when needed).

Hello LazarDan,
Welcome to the forum.

You still has about 2 months. If you can't finished it before the deadline, there should be similar contest again in 2018.

Remember that's a graphics contest with programming if you don't already know it.
