Tinct for RISC OS

What is Tinct?


Tinct is a closed-source proprietary module that is best considered licence-encumbered abandonware. It cannot be updated to work properly on modern RISC OS hardware.


Anyone interested in developing a new efficient open-source sprite rendering module that can render sprites with alpha channels, and supports error diffusion for low bits-per-pixel screen modes should please get in touch.

Tinct provides RISC OS applications with support for high speed rendering of opaque and alpha-blended sprites with optional image enhancement. It was developed to enable NetSurf to plot PNGs with alpha channels and provide on-the-fly error diffusion to display images at their best in screen modes with few colours.
