§ 17.4.1 - Status Bar Controls

§ - Current Operation (Op)

The Current Op display will show the name of the currently selected operation. The example status bar above shows that the Color Fill operation is the currently selected operation. This will only change as the current operation is changed. This means that during a TimeLine generation the current op will change as new operations are executed for each TimeLine level. This is not the same as the current cursor position which is displayed in the At control (to the right of this control).

§ - Drawing Method

[I] or . This indicates whether you are using the "Immediate Painting" method (the I) or the "Draw First" (D) method. See the Settings Menu for details.

§ - Current pointer Position, RGB Color (At)

The At area displays the current pixel position in the image for area selections, and the object that the cursor is currently over. The image coordinates will only be displayed if you are making an area selection. For example, if you made an area selection with the rectangle tool, you would see a set of coordinates appear in this display area when you clicked on an image. As you move the mouse these coordinates will be updated to show the current position. The coordinates are displayed in an X and Y format with X=0, Y=0 being the top left corner of the image. When you are just moving the cursor over an image, as long as the window is the active window, the RGB values for the pixel under the cursor will be displayed within square brackets.

This area is also used for displaying the current frame and position values for trends. If a trend curve is visible, and being manipulated, this area will display the current control point's frame number and value for that parameter. This allows you to specify the exact frame and value for any control point in a trend. If no control point is selected, this will display the cursors current frame and position values in the trend. If you are not making an area selection or adjusting a trend, this display area will show the name of the object the cursor is currently over. For example, if you were to place the cursor over the Contour icon, this area would say: Contour. Pressing F1 while there is an object name in this display area will access that section of the documentation. If there is nothing displayed in this area, pressing F1 will access the Table of Contents.

§ - Operation Progress Bar

This area will display the current progress percentage for each operation in the program. The progress bar will be used for loading, saving, rendering, and all other operations. This area will display the progress for each operation in the TimeLine as it is executed. The progress bar to the right of this display will show the overall progress for the whole TimeLine.

§ - Sequence Progress Bar

The Sequence Progress Bar displays the current progress percentage for an entire TimeLine sequence. This progress bar is also used for progress of FLI/FLC saves and multiple image file loads.

§ - Pause Sequence

This control will pause any operation or TimeLine sequence when it becomes possible. You cannot pause the loading or saving of image files. Once the pause button has been pushed, the sequence or operation can be restarted by pressing this button again. Pausing a sequence allows you to temporarily suspend all of F/x's CPU activities. This allows you to utilize the computer for another CPU intensive task (such as printing), and then return to F/x and restart the sequence.

§ - Stop Sequence

Pressing this button will stop and cancel the current operation or sequence. Once an operation is stopped, all save and sequence operation will stop. F/x will also undo any operations that have been performed.
