    HWA effects not working in build - mirror + flip help

    ==========
    Greetings.

    Firstly, well done to Clickteam on the program - it's fun, robust and functional.
    I appreciate the free version too...as I've been learning a lot from it.

    Secondly, and my question...
    Is it normal for the HWA effects to NOT work in the BUILD?
    They work fine and as expected in the preview/run.
    (I guess I know now why they're greyed out ; ^)

    I'm trying to make a a li'l photo editing app so MIRROR and FLIP are integral and utterly crucial.
    I read somewhere negative values of SCALE don't really work so I wonder if there is anything else I could try?

    I reckon there's a few extensions around that might do it...but I would need to be sure prior to upgrading Fusion.

    Any help appreciated...cheers.

    Hi and thanks, really glad you're enjoying using it

    Which effects are you talking about? The ones like xor, and, multiply etc.? Those are only available in the "Standard" display mode. If you're trying to make an image editor, take a look at the Active Picture object. Also the surface object might be of use, it allows you to do various manipulations (but may only work in Standard display mode).

    ========================
    The APO (active picture object) and SURFACE look like they'd be real handy for my project.
    I didn't even notice them when I was looking thru the extensions...so thanks for those suggestions.

    The effects I was referring to were these ones...
    (as u can see...this EFFECT applet is invoked in the event editor)

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Image7.png 
Views:	5 
Size:	84.5 KB 
ID:	28573

    I know they're being invoked because...well...they work in the RUN preview
    and there's other functions (sounds etc) that are working in the BUILD via the same invocation/trigger.
    The project is set to: Display mode = 'direct3d9'. (My vid card def supports it)

    Anyway Simon, after reading up on your suggestions, perhaps mirror and flip are the least of my concerns?
    While I have your attention (much appreciated btw), if it's no trouble, can u confirm/clarify that the basic paid version of 2.5
    will enable me to build this photo app and (more specifically), do the following:
    1 - Allow users to upload an image file
    2 - Basic manipulation of the uploaded file - (nothing too fancy required here.)
    3 - Offer up the canvas/manipulated file for the user to save to their hard drive.

    So basically, I guess I'm asking you to confirm that a photo editing app is entirely feasible in 2.5?
    (Even tho I gather from your first reply that it is.)
    Sorry to bother you with this nonsense but I couldn't find any detailed descriptions on what exactly these extensions can do.
    The other thing is that I'm in Australia...so it's a $140 (AuD) investment...and I just want to be sure.
    (I'm also making a li'l game...and I'm getting sick of counting up all the darn objects - ha
    I think now I'll be happy to upgrade, as long as I can do it with confidence.

    Anyway, thanks again Simon...really appreciate your time and I value your advice.
    Cheers.

    Hi again,

    I can see from your screenshot that you're using the Fusion 2.5 Free edition - the effects that you are asking about are not actually supported in this version which is why they are greyed out. We have made a version of Fusion 2.5 Standard available free, which will work until June 1st. You can download this here: https://www.clickteam.com/stuckinside

    This doesn't have any limitations on it and you can download it to see whether your photo editing app is possible. You may be able to create it and build it into an EXE file for distribution before June 1st - any built EXE files will continue to operate indefinitely, so you may not even need to make a purchase. I do think that so long as Fusion and the extension support the type of adjustments you need that you should be able to achieve your project.

    That's terrific Simon...big thanks to Clickteam and your good self.
    If the program suits I'm liable to upgrade anyway (post June 1)...
    ...and I'll be more than happy to repay Clickteam's generosity.
    With this new free edition I'll be able to see what's possible...so it's a win win for everyone.
    Anyway, fantastic news...thanks again for ya help Simon.

    * QUICK UPDATE *

    Just wanted to confirm that an image editing app is, indeed, quite possible...
    and thank Looki (@Looki ) for the SURFACE extension which proved invaluable.

    Also...thanks again to CTF for the free 'Covid' version which made it all possible.

    You can download the free app (and a few demo game levels) from here...
