New version of VirtualU
« on: January 09, 2021, 04:21:52 am »
    A new version of the Lazarus program VirtualU is available and it includes some nice new features and tools. This new version probably will not be changed in any major way for some time unless we find problems with it. We are considering the possibility of making an instructional video that will explain how to use VirtualU. The making of this video would provide more opportunity to shakedown and improve VirtualU.
    Of course we will use VirtualU to make that video.
    *In addition to external edge softening, VirtualU now does internal edge softening! This enables the softening of white text and other white foreground images.
    *A new tool inverts the colors of a picture or video.
    *In previous versions if a picture was edge softened after being de-edged and then the edge softening was cancelled, the cancellation would also erroneously remove the de-edging. This error has been fixed.
    *The current download version now has tools for rotating and flipping pictures and videos. The flip code was provided by the Lazarus Forum.
    *The Help files have been updated.
    *The edge softening page has been improved. We will continue to tweak and improve the SoftType edge softening method. Note: The Edge Softening page is run by the program file edges1.exe. If Windows XP or Windows 7 are not being used then the SoftType method runs about 35% faster when edges1.exe is set to run in Compatibility mode.
    *Many changes and improvements were made throughout the program, too many to list here.
    The current download version of VirtualU contains the changes mentioned above.
    Thank you Lazarus.

    VirtualU is in a zipped folder named temp15.zip and it can be downloaded from:

    A WordPad file containing instructions and developmental log reports can be downloaded from:
        https://od.lk/d/NDJfMjM2MDM4MV8/readme.rtf

    A documentary named wtf7 (World Of The Future) made by Fingal using VirtualU is available at:
        https://youtu.be/88Vd4L6rVk8 (contains no edge softening)

    A short movie that describes edge softening made with VirtualU can be downloaded from:

VirtualU is a video player, recorder and editor for those who, like me, were wondering what it was.

OP: You might like to post it to the Propjects using FPC + Lazarus on the Wiki.
