Anyone use this program yet to reduce pixels?

I downloaded the zip file from github, but it not really clear how to install the program.
https://github.com/Photonsters/VoxelsOps

The zip file has about 25 files in it.

It's a node.js app so it's not installed in the classic sense.    Node is just a framework where everything runs in javascript.

You first install node.js  https://nodejs.org/en/download/ (also see install vid
then run various 'node' commands in the ./helpers folder via the node.js command prompt.  Looks like one step that's missing though, is to install the 'electron' dependency.  So, when you're still in the command window, run:  npm i -g electron.

I have no idea what each script is used, but each of the commands in there does have a help context, if you type, for example:  node dilate.js -h

Code: [Select]
usage: dilate.js [-h] [-v] -s SRC -d DEST -r RADIUS

Argparse example

Optional arguments:
  -h, --help            Show this help message and exit.
  -v, --version         Show program's version number and exit.
  -s SRC, --src SRC     Location of source photon file
  -d DEST, --dest DEST  Destination directory name
  -r RADIUS, --radius RADIUS
                        Dilatation radius

There's also this 'Gyroid Infill generator' that's run by opening ./app/index.html, but again.. no idea what it's for ;)

I should probably learn though, since i bought a photon :)

hope this helps?

Well at least that explains why it wasn't so clear  :lol:

So it isn't a program?

oops..did you get this figured out?  lol   It's basically a program, but written in a scripting language.
