On the latest versions compiled with an updated MSYS2 environment, there is a problem with the ‘boxfitting’ and ‘fx_pack_ellipses’ filters on G’MIC GIMP QT et G’MIC QT:
The result is a black image.
This problem does not exist on G’MIC CLI.
These 2 examples work properly:
gmic sp colorful boxfitting
gmic sp colorful fx_pack_ellipses 3,20,0,30,100,6,1,3,0,0,0,255,0,0
To have a result with ‘boxfitting’ and ‘fx_pack_ellipses’ on G’MIC QT I must modify ‘repeat inf’ by replacing ‘inf’ with an integer.
repeat 1000 for ‘fx_pack_ellipses’
repeat 3 for ‘Boxfitting’
Currently, we use the
-Ofast optimization flags when compiling G’MIC-Qt, while
gmic uses only
-O3. This is related. We should have used
-O3 as well for G’MIC-Qt.
If you change
-O3 in the
gmic_qt.pro file, then the filters are working as expected. This is something we’ll do for the next release.
Good news! Modification ‘-O3’ works for QT.
It is possible to download the binaries corresponding to this modification for Win 64 GIMP 2.10/2.99:
Binary packages have been updated on the G’MIC website for
