Release Notes (v. 3.8.3)
Friday, November 4, 2016
 Support for newest Canon EOS 5D Mark IV camera.
 Fixed some usability issues.
 Now AnimaShooter correctly processes RAW+JPEG images captured by newer cameras or with newer camera firmware.
 Bugfixes.
Release notes for v. 3.8.0
 Now AnimaShooter can work with newest Canon EOS cameras - EOS-1D X Mark II, EOS 80D and EOS 1300D.
 Capture and save RAW file (alongside with TIFF and JPG).
 New Focal length indicator to ensure accuracy.
 New Info Panel with YRGB histogram, image type and frame size information.
 Greatly improved PDF export.
 Respecting aspect ratio. Since version 3.8 AnimaShooter will no longer try to stretch images (on sequence export or video export), keeping image aspect ratio, adding black margins if needed. With this feature you can easily avoid either excessive cropping or skewing of the image output.
 Warning beep. AnimaShooter Capture 3.8 will beep when the camera battery is low. It is important if you use a battery to power your camera.
 More control over camera. New battery indicator-icon, showing charge level.
 New option to stretch LiveView to fill all available space (keeping aspect ratio).
 FPS switch.
Release notes for v. 3.7.6
 New tool for AnimaShooter Capture - Eyedropper to control color characteristics of LiveView image.
 Static frames indication has become more compact.
 Now AnimaShooter highlights the frame which should be deleted when you hit "Delete" button for the first time.
Release notes for v. 3.7.5
 Now you can copy one or a group of frames, using the Ctrl + Alt + drag.
 New option to set font size - this should make AnimaShooter more tablet friendly.
 UI improvements - menu icons and new toggle buttons to control rotation of camera view, anti-aliasing and frame cropping.
Release notes for v. 3.7.1
  Version 3.7 is a maintenance release. Now AnimaShooter runs on Windows® 10.
Release notes for v. 3.6.0
 Faster shooting. AnimaShooter will now temporarily disable the autofocus when shooting (AnimaShooter Capture).
 Support for the latest Canon DSLR cameras, such as the Canon EOS 5DS, Canon EOS 5DS R, Canon EOS 750D, Canon EOS 760D.
 Quickly switch between the camera and webcam (AnimaShooter Capture).
 Darken interface at the time of shooting, so the light of the monitor screen does not affect the lighting of your scene.
 Now Ram-preview can playback reference frames.
 Save captured frame in a separate folder in TIFF.
Release notes for v. 3.5.3
 Maintenance release - few bugs were fixed

 Export video in OGV format (HTML5 video supported by any modern browser).
 Now AnimaShooter displays dimensions of captured and reference images as well as resolution of the camera on tabs of the preview window.
 Images displayed in the preview window now cached and therefore images load much faster.
