What's New in Version 2.3.4

The tiny brewers inside of GIF Brewery have bought some glasses and fixed some bugs. They've also decided to not go into the finance industry.

Also, GIF Brewery now names windows after the video opened (10.7+ only) and remembers default caption text.

What's New in Version 2.3.2

The tiny brewers inside GIF Brewery were getting confused when saving GIFs to secondary or external hard drives in 2.3.1. They've been retaught how to do this properly in 2.3.2. They are deeply sorry for this mistake.

[Patch notes from 2.3.1]
- Overlays now have different blend modes, such as Multiply, Screen, etc...
- Introducing "Clip Focus", which allows the timeline to "zoom in" and just show the area around your selected clip.
- Redesigned the timeline start/end time indicators.
- Moving a start/end time indicator now also changes the current time so you can see exactly what the start / end times are.
- GIF Brewery now remembers your last font choice when creating new captions.
- If GIF Brewery can no longer find or access a recipe's movie file, it will ask you to select a new one for that recipe.
- Correctly display clip start time, end time, and duration.
- Improve usability when user has "Full Keyboard Access" turned on.
- GIFs can now be overwritten.

What's New in Version 2.2

Hello and welcome to another GIF Brewery update. The tiny brewers inside GIF Brewery have been hard at work with this update ever since they were told to stop making cat GIFs.

Here's an abbreviated list of their updates and changes.

* They've improved caption creation & quality.
* They've learned to count above one, so now you may have more than one overlay/caption.
* They've improved their knowledge of the space-time continuum, so overlays may now have their own start & end times.
* They've tinkered with custom palettes & dithering.
* They've made a GIF's Tumblr-ness more explicit.
* They've renamed and rearranged some things.
* They've decided they can live in a tinier space.
* They've also done some work on GIF Brewery's plumbing.

More information on all the changes can be found at http://gifbrewery.com. If you have any questions about them, feel free to also contact us via email or twitter (@helloresolvapps).

Also of note:

1. The process of setting the start/end times for captions & overlays is not finalized. User feedback via e-mail or twitter is greatly appreciated in streamlining and improving this new functionality.

2. GIF Brewery's Tumblr indicator is *only* a hint. Tumblr ultimately controls what GIFs can and cannot work on their service. While, GIF Brewery will try its best to keep up-to-date, the end user should always double-check their GIFs versus Tumblr's requirements.

3. Past saved GIF Brewery recipes with captions will not show their captions due to changes in caption handling. Sorry for the inconvenience.

4. If you are using Quicktime components, such as Perian, Flip4Mac, or 3ivx, you MUST make sure they are up-to-date and compatible with Apple's Sandbox. Out-dated components may lead to GIF Brewery crashes.

The brewers would also like to remind you that if you experience any bugs/issues with this update or the app in general, please email [email protected] or send a message via twitter (@helloresolvapps). The brewers toast to your helpfulness in tracking down bugs.

What's New in Version 2.0

Welcome to the long awaited and oft-promised GIF Brewery 2.0. Please read these update notes!

First, check out GIF Brewery 2.0 in action at http://helloresolven.com/portfolio/gifbrewery/ or http://gifbrewery.tumblr.com/.

Second, if you run into any issues, please e-mail us or contact us via Twitter. A broken GIF Brewery is a sad GIF Brewery. Also feel free to contact us over feature ideas or suggestions!

Third, if you experience "hash mismatch" errors or are unable to run the app after updating, close App Store, delete the old GIFBrewery from your Applications folder, and empty the trash. Then return to App Store and re-install GIFBrewery from your Purchased list. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Anyways, onto the release notes!

[GENERAL]
* Brand new UI, no more second floating side window.
* Check out the menu bar & toolbar for most actions. There are also a plethora of keyboard shortcuts.
* You may now drag files to the GIF Brewery icon in your dock to open files quickly.
* New icon.
* Now sandboxed.
* GIF Brewery 1.0 save files are not compatible with GIF Brewery 2.0.

[PLAYBACK]
* Can now goto a specific time by Movie > Go to time... or double-clicking the current time.
* Can now skip forward/backward five seconds.

[FILTERS]
* Filters now behave like other image editors.
* Can now remove all filters at once.

[CANVAS]
* Cropping has been implemented.
* Can now reset canvas, which removes all preview crops & resizes.

[OVERLAY]
* Ability to add an overlay to your GIF has been implemented.

[GIF PROPERTIES]
* Added ability to simply set the FPS for GIFs. This option will automatically calculate the frame count & delay for you based on your clip.
* Added ability to set the default FPS for new GIFs. (GIF Brewery > Preferences...)

[EXPORT]
* You may now export the frames as PNGs instead of GIF. (Create > Export as Frames...)
* Removed "Preview in Safari..." option due to Apple's App Sandbox restrictions. Sorry about that.

Version 1.4 | Release Date: 2012-01-12 | Download

What's New in Version 1.4

[NEW] Users can now set the GIF loop count. The default is 0, which is the same as infinite looping.

[NOTE] GIF Brewery's loop count is targeted for Safari and Chrome's loop counting. Sadly, this causes the in-app GIF preview to loop an incorrect amount of times. This is the result of differences between Apple's NSImageView and WebKit/Safari.

[NEW] Users may now quickly preview GIFs in Safari. Please use this to verify loop counts and playback speed.

[NEW] The save/discard buttons on the GIF creation panel now have shortcuts. You can press Enter to bring up the Save... dialog or press Delete to discard the created GIF.

[NEWS] This is the end for 1.X updates. I will be beginning on GIF Brewery 2.0 in the coming weeks. If you have suggestions and comments, feel free to contact me via e-mail or twitter.

[REMINDER] ** If you experience "hash mismatch" errors or are unable to run the app after updating, close App Store, delete the old CineGIF from your Applications folder, and empty the trash. Then return to App Store and re-install GIFBrewery from your Purchased list! Sorry for the inconvenience; it is due to the name change and MAS not updating app bundle fully. **

<p>ATTENTION! PLEASE READ THIS! --> ** If you experience "hash mismatch" errors or are unable to run the app after updating, close App Store, delete the old CineGIF from your Applications folder, and empty the trash. Then return to App Store and re-install GIFBrewery from your Purchased list! Sorry for the inconvenience; it is due to the name change and MAS not updating app bundle fully. **<br /><br />[NEW] Name change! Now called GIFBrewery, due to trademark reasons. Hate the name? Feel free to suggest a better one!<br /><br />[NEW] The end arrows for the clip range in the time slider will now snap to the current time if you move the arrows close enough to the current time marker.<br /><br />[CHANGE] When you try to set the start time to be greater than the end time, now both times are moved to the new time. The same applies for the opposite situation with end time less than the start time.<br /><br />[NEW] GIFs are now given a default name based on your current time.<br /><br />[UPDATE] If you are using Lion, GIFBrewery will display a warning if it detects the 3ivx QuickTime Component. This component has known issues with Lion, which are independent of GIFBrewery. You'll need to uninstall it until 3ivx is update for Lion.<br /><br />[FIX] If you cancel saving a GIF, GIFBrewery should no longer keep around the temporary GIF. OS X would have deleted it eventually, but just helping speed up the process.</p>
