Just out of curiosity, which language was used for this?

Looking forward to "mess around" with this new release! Used CSAM3 a hundred times :)

Also if you are talking about codebook and lookuptable optimisation (instead of using the dithered image as source) this will be implemented in the compression studio that will be another module for the application

Kabuto. Absolutely. This will be implemented. Infact CSAM V3 had this option. It can work well for some images and faster encode as well due to lesser blocks

Great tool, might be handy for me, e.g. creating quick mockups!

It would be nice if 320x200 wasn't the only permitted image size, in order to apply it to a larger image I had to slice my test picture into chunks, make an AVI from that and feed that into CSAM Super.

Also, especially when using the C64 Convert Studio, one might be able to get better quality if the final quantization outcome was fed back into the codebook generator. In my tests it often generates chars that are more or less identical, wasting efficiency.

I am very interested in trying it, as I think this is a very cool idea/tool indeed. But somehow I'm not even able to download it here. Guess I will have to try some other way around then. But thanks for fast reply. Thumbs up for your effort on the tool!

Also, the actual program (avi import) works by extracting data to the drive (which some virus heuristics would assume is a Trojan dropper)

Its a false alarm. Trust me. The EXE is packed via ASPACK

Wondering why my Avast anti-virus scanner tells me that this is infected with Win32:Evo-gen ?
