For default GUI run:
java -jar GpxAnimator-1.4.jar
For program help run:
java -jar GpxAnimator-1.4.jar --help
For direct rendering run:
java -jar GpxAnimator-1.4.jar --input track.gpx
Application is crashing with java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space
Increase java heap memory:
java -Xmx1024m -jar GpxAnimator-1.4.jar.
If the problem persists, try higher value or check if your GPX trace doesn't cover too big area.
If it does then try to specify lower zoom, width and/or height.
Does it run on Linux, Windows, WhateverOS?
Application will run on any platform where you can run Java.
My GPX is missing point timestamps
No problem. Add --forced-point-time-interval option.
Video is very short or long
Fine-tune speedup or specify exact total time in seconds.
The UI is too small on a high DPI screen
Some (older) Java versions have problems with the resolution of a high DPI screen. Until we find a solution to do it programmatically, you can force Java to double the size of the UI using this command:
GDK_SCALE=2 java -jar target/GpxAnimator-1.4.jar
I have some other problem
