Picturalizer

P I C T U R A L I Z E R
Current Version 2.2019.09.11

Three skins are included:
  • 1. CURRENT_WALL_CENTERED
    Uses the current wallpaper picture and creates a visualizer from the center half of the wallpaper
    Visualizer updates when you change your wallpaper
  • 2. RANDOM_FULL_IMAGE
    Uses random pictures from user specified folder (and sub-folders) and creates a visualizer from the entire image
    Maximum size is your work area width and height (a Full-Screen visualizer)
    Includes an optional image change timer
  • 3. RANDOM_BAR_IMAGE
    Uses 'bar' images you create (several included with the package)
    The image will be the full work area width and a user specified height (up to the height of the 'bar' image)
    Includes an optional image change timer
Does not resize or change the original picture
Works with any size image
Does NOT support Windows Slideshow or Theme wallpapers (those are trans-coded images)

The resulting visualizers will be:
  • half the image size (centered), for version 1
  • the full image (tiled), up to a maximum size of the current screen resolution, for version 2 above
  • or a vertically sizeable bar you create, for version 3 above.
When no music is playing, version 3 can be timed image viewers

Visualizers can have up to 2~160 bars with or without gaps
Bars can be flipped vertically
The bar display can be:
  • full intensity vertical bar levels (normal visualizer)
  • or full size bars with color intensity driven bands
Fairly resource intensive, so I would recommend using a monitoring skin to deactivate the skin when not needed, such as visualizer loader

Requires RM 4.3.0.0 or higher and Win 7 or higher

Enjoy!

v 2.2018.08.23

Corrected gap control issue that could cause the image clipping action to produce distorted images, especially with smaller images and high bar counts :uhuh:
Now when you increase the gap beyond one half of the bar width it will reset to zero :thumbup:

Edit: Corrected an image substitution error in Current_Wall_Centered skin...
Reminder to self: Keep the cat away from the keyboard! :x
