|::: What is Artweaver?
Artweaver is an excellent
image editing and painting software for PC created by
Boris Eyrich of Germany. As of version 0.4.4 it is still freeware.
This page is intended as a
resource page for users of Project
Dogwaffle Professional (aka PD Pro)
who also want to use
ArtWeaver. ArtWeaver is an interesting companion to Project Dogwaffle:
- Common Lua Scripting
framework with support of Dogwaffle's GUIserver! With the Lua
plugin, Artweaver can support Dogwaffle's Lua scripts for image filters
(based on gluas as seen for the GIMP), including the Dogwaffle
GUIserver for interactive
There is an import and export plugin
for Project Dogwaffle to save to or load from
Artweaver's '.awd' file format: Artweaver_importexport.zip
contains 3 files:
- Artweaver_pi.exe (the AWD importer)
- Artweaver_px.exe (the AWD exporter)
- AWDFileLib.dll (the
AWD file i/o utility library) updated!
Installation and use:
Simply copy these files into the
folder of your Project Dogwaffle, PD Artist or PD Pro installation. You
can then find the import and export in their respective area of the File...
menu, and in the Import & Export
(or In & Out
) tabs of the plugin
panel. Remember: Hit 'k' for k)iller plugins :-). Please note: the
current version does not maintain the layers when exporting or restore
the layers in Dogwaffle when importing. Saving a layered image from
Dogwaffle to awd format will flatten the save image file. If you wish
to keep the separate layers intact, then use the Dogweaver plugin
instead to send layer by layer fromDogwaffle into new layers of
- The latest version of Irfanview
can also display awd files (as of Irfanview 3.99). The Artweaver loader
for Irfanview is included in the Irfanview plugins download.
- There is also a plugin for XnView.
If you use XnView as your image browser and viewer, you can directly
load .awd files. See the Artweaver
homepage for details on downloading the XnView plugin
- With the DogWeaver
plugin, Artweaver users can connect directly to a running
session of Project Dogwaffle
directly (PD Particles or PD 2.1, PD Pro 3 and 4 and free version
1.2), so there's no need to save the artwork to files to transfer it
back and forth between the two applications.
