You can probably tweak the carrier.nut to just load the required pictures instead of "local obj = fe.add_artwork( "wheel" )" but in the end this is going to mess with rawset_index_offset changes. I'll have to look into it.

Is that a function I call from layout.nut to get the carrier to use a different named art source in AM. Or do I need specify it it in carrier.nut

That would be easiest.

As far as I can see no, you have to go in the carrier.nut code and in the line

Code: [Select]
local obj = fe.add_artwork( "wheel" )
substitute "wheel" with the name of the artwork you have created in AM

Is there any way to keep AM from antialiasing the layout when it resizes it to screen size?

Oh for the picture you should use "picturename.smooth = false", for the whole layout I have no idea...

There's no option to anti-alias a single shape. To get anti-aliased shapes (i.e. shapes with smoothed edges), you have to enable anti-aliasing globally when you create the window, with the corresponding attribute of the sf::ContextSettings structure.

I don’t think sfml applies anti-aliasing to textures. I could be wrong. Perhaps it’s a driver thing?

I think the term anti-aliasing in this case is misleading since it applies to shapes borders. When you define a Layout at a certain size and AM enlarges it to fit the screen it applies bilinear filtering, that's what he's trying to avoid.

picturename.smooth=false worked out perfect applied to my background video

however..
carrier.smooth = false

did not work.

nor did adding
selector.smooth = false

to carrier.nut

figured it out...

added this to carrier.nut around line 152 to turn off smoothing of wheel images... if you're into that sort of thing.

Code: [Select]
153    obj.smooth=false
