FS-UAE seems to do something stupid when you press alt.

Grabbing an animbrush is easy. Go to Anim->Animbrush->Pick up…

Thanks Idrougge, appreciated.

The observations so far regarding DPaint (IV) in FS-UAE on MacOS, followed by a couple of questions:

• To get correct pointer behaviour when using a Wacom (Cintiq) pen, add this to the FS-UAE Launcher 'Custom Configuration…' entry window: “mouse_integration = 1” .

• If right-mousebutton menus directly disappear after activating them, turn off the Warp mode for correct menu behaviour.

• To properly open submenus in a right-mousebutton menu, click on the left side of the submenu entry in the parent menu. Clicking on the right side of a submenu entry instantly activates the first function in the submenu.

• Holding the Alt key should activate animpainting in DPaint (if you've got some frames), but that doesn't work. There seems to be something wrong with the Alt key in FS-UAE, or at least when running DPaint (IV).


Questions:

• How do I copy saved image files from my Amiga harddisk image to MacOS? Once I know how to do that, I expect XnConvert for MacOS will allow me to convert the IFF files to PNG or GIF format.

• Is there a way to easily save frames from a DPaint animation, or maybe to convert a DPaint animation to an animated GIF?

Thanks for your help!

ffmpeg can now read iff anims and convert to mp4, avi and gif anims.
here is a link to some mac osx builds.
ffmpeg -i iff_anim.iff gif_anim.gif

mount a directory as a hardrive, never done in fs-uae, but should work aswell.

Just add another disk pointing to a Mac directory in FS-UAE's hard disk dialogue.

Xee will show IFF ILBM pictures, and there is also a Quicklook plugin for IFF mt by Dalton/Tulou.

PPaint can save as animated GIF.

try adding this line into settings -> advanced settings:
input.1.keyboard.0.button.56.LMENU = KEY_ALT_LEFT.17,SPC_QUALIFIER_ALT.0

it's taken from my winuae config, using the left alt key. using here a mac compatible keyboard.
i'm not sure if fs-uae will understand this config line, but worth a try.
not really sure if it will work

in the source code docs for the keyboard input you can read for example:
LALT ------ keyboard_key_kp_lalt ----- Different physical position on Mac

the document may help to find the working config line for your mac, I'm stiil looking for that.

maybe something like:
keyboard_key_56 action_key_kp_lalt
or:
keyboard_key_56 action_key_lalt

It's not that Mac alt isn't alt in the emulated Amiga, but each time you hold alt while pressing the mouse, the emulator enters some mode where you can reposition the mouse pointer.

Thumbs up

Really useful GraphicConverter. It can convert just about everything, including IFF Anims to animated GIF or separate PNGs. Brilliant! This helps me a great deal in the transition of files from DPaint and PPaint to MacOS!

Yes, I've used it a lot since it was bundled with all Macs ten years ago.

I've known GraphicConverter for a long time as well, but never used it. I used XnConvert for image conversions, but GraphicConverter is amazing. I'm very happy with it!

is this the same GraphicConverter which was available for mac os 7/8/9 many moons ago?

#1) wikipedia says: "Initial release 1992; 25 years ago"
i guess it is the one i was using on some classic machines

I will. I'm about ready to start pixeling, after the search for the right emulation workflow and tools.

Another question:

If I want to install DPaint V from the installation disk to my harddisk image in FS-UAE, can I simply double-click the Install icon? And more important: will the harddisk installation of DPaint automatically be saved, so DPaint V will remain on my virtual Amiga harddisk forever?

This is probably a stupid question for you Amiga and emulation veterans.

yes, it should work that way. and content will be saved permanently once installed to hdd

#1) maybe it will ask for a serial: you can try this: 12642205EA593355
it' been a while, so i cannot remember exactly (version DPaint V 5.2)

Not yet. 😟 I just can't get the Alt + LMB combination to work in FS-UAE on MacOS. I've submitted the issue at the FS-UAE Github page, but no response yet. I hope it will follow soon, and I hope it's simply a matter of a configuration adjustment in stead of having to wait for an update.
