Animation Library
« on: July 06, 2012, 07:42:08 pm »
I've seen many animation libraries on this site and made with SFML, but I do not know what exactly to look for in an animation library. Any suggestions?

I don't really understand your question.

Anyway, you can take a look a Zoost and Zoom, which come with various geometries such as bezier curves or polygons to animate. Or at my project Thor, which provides generic animation functions that can be applied to graphical objects (e.g. to change a sprite's texture rect).

Oh wow. Thor looks like its awesome. Many useful features. Is 2.0 close to release or should I just go ahead and get 1.1?

No, it is not very close to release (on my homepage you see the progress), but I recommend nevertheless to use the latest GitHub revision for Thor 2.0, as many things have been improved since 1.1. Also, it should be compatible to the latest SFML version.
