Love this so far!
I haven't made anything with the filter yet, but throwing my old work into it looks pretty promising.
Thank you so much for making this. c:
A downloadable tool for Windows
Squint is a live upscaler companion program for Aseprite that allows you to see live what your drawing would look like upscaled through one those filters:
- xBR-lv1-noblend (simpler, but less fancy)
- xBR-lv2 (fancier with extra smoothness and settings
It is provided with a Lua script that has to be run by Aseprite to make the connection with the tool.
- Launch squint. It should be waiting for a connection.
- Open Aseprite and the sprite you want to upscale
- Launch the client script.
- A small window should appear in Aseprite. It's non-blocking, you can still edit your sprite while it's on, just leave it out of your way.
- Aseprite is now trying to connect to squint.
- Once squint shows your sprite, it's ready to go!
- F1 to toggle the help screen.
- F2 to toggle the background's color between white and dark gray.
- Right-click or TAB to toggle the options screen.
- S to save the current result into
- F12 to screenshot.
- ? - I can't find the script option in the File Menu
- Sounds like you either have an outdated version of Aseprite. Please make sure to have a recent one. 1.2.30 should be the first version fully compatible with squint.
- For linux tinkerers: some repositories can have or make build a version without this feature. You might need to to build your own version of Aseprite.
- You need a recent version of Aseprite (at least 1.2.30).
- Install the extension named `squint-client.aseprite-extension`. Either double-click the file or install it through Aseprite by locating the "Extensions" tab in the Preferences menu, pressing the "Add Extension" button and locating the extension.
- If you find the "Connect to Squint" menu entry in the File menu, you should be ready to go!

Would love a macOS version 🥺
Ha! as soon as I saw this I thought of Polyducks and Tarius, lol
This is looking incredible! Excited to see how it develops.
