ABOUT
-----

 RNOAnim is a compact animation player that also has some conversion and
 editing functions. It supports IFF, GIF, and AVI (uncompressed/MJPEG) anims
 internally, but also allows a wide range of other formats via plugins and
 datatypes.


FEATURES
--------

 - MUI GUI
 - Internal loaders: IFF, GIF, AVI (uncompressed/MJPEG)
 - Included plugins: APNG, FLI/FLC, YAFA
 - Can save (convert) to: GIF, APNG, and AVI (MJPEG)
 - Can export frames to PNG images
 - Animations can be resized freely by resizing the window
 - Several options to alter the playback speed
 - Animation frames can be added, inserted, or removed
 - All changes (size, speed, frames) will be saved when saving a new animation
 - Drag & drop loading
 - ARexx support
 - Keyboard and mouse controls


INSTALLATION
------------

 - Copy the whole directory anywhere you want
 - New plugins can be installed by copying a plugin file (.hwp) to the RNOAnim
   directory
 - If you're using an OS4 beta and the program fails to start, copy the plugin
   files (especially the muiroyale.hwp file) to LIBS:Hollywood/


CONTROLS
--------

 Command+Q  . . . . - Quits the program
 Mouse wheel  . . . - Jumps to previous or next frame
 Shift+Mouse wheel  - Jumps 5 frames back or forward


EDITING
-------

 - "Add frame..." creates new frames from the selected pictures, and adds them
   to the end of the animation.
 - "Insert frame..." inserts the new frames to the current position.
 - "Remove frame" removes a frame from the current position.
 - The frame delay of each individual frame can be changed manually by typing
   a new value in milliseconds. Note that saving the animation to GIF rounds
   down the values with 10ms precision. IFF and PNG anims will work with 1ms
   precision.
 - The "Speed" setting is a multiplier to the frame delay values, and thus
   respects the varying frame delay values, but speeds up or slows down the
   playback overall.
 - The "FPS" setting forces all frames to be played with a fixed frame-rate
   forgetting the original potentially varying frame delays. Note that saving
   to AVI takes the speed from this value only (defaults to 25 fps).


SETTINGS
--------

 Settings are found from program's pull-down menu and they will be saved to
 the ENVARC:RNOAnim/ directory.

 Preload animation . - Loads the whole animation into memory instead of
                       streaming it. This is required when editing frames, but
                       can be disabled if you run out of the memory when
                       playing huge animations.
 Play automatically  - Starts the playback immediately after loading an anim.
 Loop animation  . . - Plays an animation in a loop.
 Keep speed  . . . . - Keeps the custom speed settings when loading a new anim.
 Keep aspect ratio . - Keeps the aspect ratio of an anim when resizing it.
 Keep zoom . . . . . - Keeps the zoom value when loading a new animation.
 Smooth scaling  . . - Uses anti-aliased interpolation when resizing an anim.
 Transparency  . . . - Defines if transparency values or alpha channels are
                       loaded when loading animations or adding frame images,
                       or saving an APNG anim. Note that transparency with GIF
                       anim saving isn't supported as yet, but will be at a
                       later date.
 Dithering . . . . . - Dithers frame images when saving to GIF likely requires
                       the number of colors used reducing, to a maximum of 256.
 Insert mode . . . . - Dropped image files will be inserted to the animation
                       instead of being added to the end of the animation.

 ENV settings which aren't found within the GUI:
 RNOAnim/colors  . . - The number of colors a GIF anim will use when saved.
                       Which can be from 1 up to 256 (defaults to 256).
