  • Workshop4 Release ( with additional PRO Features!

    A major release of Workshop4 is now available, Version, which brings about the Smart Widget Editor, an amazing set of tools which allow you to build your own widgets for Workshop4!
    Ever wanted a customised Gauge or Slider or Knob, or evening something like transparent overlay menus? Now you can do it, with Workshop4 PRO!

    Smart Widgets Editor is a powerful utility which enables the generation of Smart Widgets.
    • Users can create complex widgets with up to six layers, including the layer for the base image. The order of the layers can be arranged as desired.
    • Each layer can contain one or more images arranged in sequence that can be manipulated in a variety of ways. Image manipulation options include horizontal motion, vertical motion, and angular motion. Additionally, the transparency of a layer can be set.
    • Two or more layers can be linked to produce synchronized movements of images. This enables the generation of complex widgets with multiple moving parts. Clockwork feature is also supported. This enables users to quickly generate clock widgets.
    • Each layer can have a numeric part which can display numbers in various fonts and formats. Alternatively, the numeric part can be a fixed sequence of text.
    • The output frames can be utilized using any of the supported Workshop4 environments

    WS4 Pro comes with 30+ different examples of smart widgets.

    Smart Widgets are custom widgets designed using the Smart Widgets Editor. There are three types available – Smart Gauges, Smart Knobs, and Smart Sliders.
