Release 0.8.1

Release 0.8.1 is out, with bug fixes, fixes in the linux package and some new features.

There are 3 new nodes: GenerateX, ColorX and LayerX, that use Disney's SeExpr 
to generate / color correct and composite images. DistortX will follow soon.
Also, there's a new sample folder with some examples of how to use them.

You can even replace the splash screen by your own expression. Just copy the file ui/ 
in the package, edit it and copy it to $HOME/ramen1.0/ui.
Check SeExpr's site for more info.

I bundled Python 2.7 in this release, but there's not much you can do with it yet.
For now it's more of an experiment to lean how to distribute python with an application.

And finally, I added a Move3D node. It's still work in progress.
It has some cool things: it's a real 3D transformation and it concatenates 
with other (following) Move3D nodes in real 3d space.
On the other side, it doesn't have on screen controls yet 
and it's usually difficult to see what's going on and filtering quality is not 
very high. 

I plan on addressing the resampling quality issues in the next release.


  1. Great you've taken Ramen up again. If you want some more attention on the project I would recommend you to do some videos showing the functionality. :)

  2. I'd like to start small. The app needs still many improvements before being really useful.
    Let's not repeat the mistakes of the past.

  3. Hi Est!!
    I want to say Hello :)

    I'm happy to see Ramen development going forward.

    Un abrazo!!
