NAME
       CinePaint - 32-bit image	painting and retouching

SYNOPSIS
       cinepaint [option ...] [files ...]

DESCRIPTION
       CinePaint  is  different	 from other painting tools because it supports
       deep color depth	image formats up to 32-bit per channel deep. For  com-
       parison,	 GIMP  is limited 8-bit, and Photoshop to 16-bit. To avoid bit
       depth confusion,	note that 48-bit scanners are 16-bit per  channel  and
       24-bit  monitors	 are  8-bit  per channel. Like with audio, extra image
       bits can	hold higher fidelity.

       CinePaint supports high fidelity	image formats  such  as	 32-bit	 TIFF,
       10-bit log Cineon, and 16-bit half float	OpenEXR. It also supports less
       exotic formats such as JPEG, GIF	and PNG. For historical	reasons, Cine-
       Paint's	native format is 16-bit	XCF, a variant of the GIMP format. In-
       ternally, CinePaint works in 8-bit unsigned,  16-bit  unsigned,	16-bit
       binary fixed point, 16-bit chopped float, or 32-bit IEEE	float. Support
       for 16-bit half float is	coming.

       CinePaint includes a built-in flipbook for playback of image sequences.
       It  does	not yet	support	audio playback or synchronized 24fps playback.
       It doesn't yet support editing, DV, M-JPEG, AVI,	Quicktime, or MPEG.

       CinePaint runs on all popular flavors of	Linux and on Mac OS  X	as  an
       X11 application.	A native Mac Aqua port of CinePaint is in development.
       The Windows port	of CinePaint is	currently broken, but may be available
       again in	2005.

OPTIONS
       From cinepaint --help

       Usage: cinepaint	[option	...] [files ...]  Valid	options	are:
	 -h --help		Output this help.
	 -v --version		Output version info.
	 -b --batch <commands>	Run in batch mode.
	 -n --no-interface	Run without a user interface.
	 --no-data		 Do  not  load	patterns, gradients, palettes,
       brushes.
	 --verbose		Show startup messages.
	 --no-splash		Do not show the	startup	window.
	 --no-splash-image	Do not add an image to the startup window.
	 --no-shm		Do not use shared memory between GIMP and  its
       plugins.
	 --no-xshm		Do not use the X Shared	Memory extension.
	 --console-messages	 Display warnings to console instead of	a dia-
       log box.
	 --debug-handlers	Enable debugging signal	handlers.
	 --display <display>	Use the	designated X display.

       The no-interface	mode has never worked, but a new  architecture	called

OTHER INFO
       CinePaint  began	in 1998	as a project sponsored by motion picture tech-
       nology company Silicon Grail (later acquired by Apple) and  visual  ef-
       fects  studio Rhythm & Hues. The	goal was to add	deep paint to GIMP. By
       2000 a CVS branch of GIMP known as Film Gimp offered that feature.

       GIMP had	begun in 1995 as a class project at the	University of Califor-
       nia Berkeley, but the original student developers left GIMP after grad-
       uation. The GIMP	student	effort was mostly taken	over  by  hackers  who
       wanted  to  further the GNU cause. In 2000 the GIMP hackers and Silicon
       Grail ceased work on the	Hollywood-based	development of GIMP.  Although
       everyone	 at  GIMP  (mostly based in Germany) thought it	was dead, Film
       Gimp development	continued independently	in Hollywood at	Rhythm &  Hues
       and then	spread to Sony Pictures	Imageworks.

       On  July	 4,  2002,  Film  Gimp	was  released to the general public on
       SourceForge. Many more developers joined	the project. A year later  the
       project was renamed CinePaint. The current developers of	CinePaint have
       never had any affiliation with the GIMP project.
