Kovid is still hammering out some things in the beta of the next versions. However, it is pretty stable and works well. You can get the link to it from the first message in this thread http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28467 .

As to when it will be released, I will leave that up to Kovid to answer. But, from what I have seen on the beta thread it is pretty close... I would guess maybe a week or so... unless he has more features he is working on that aren't in the beta yet. I think he intends to release this as 0.5 once it goes out.

Once the betas have been stable for a couple of days (i.e. no more bug reports), I'll release it as 0.4.84. Once any remaining bugs in 0.4.84 are ironed out, I'll release 0.5

Now that the 505 does ePub, would converting comics to ePub instead of lrf make full resolution in landscape mode possible?

full resolution in landscape has been done for LRF, it will be in the next release of Calibre.

Just Making sure I am doing this right....

I am having trouble converting a PowerPoint file to CBZ and wanted to check out my process is correct

1 - Convert all slides into jpegs in a folder (with frames around them)
2 - Select slides and add to a .rar file
3 - Change the name to NAME.cbz
4 - Drag into Calibre
5 - Select document
6 - Click Convert ebooks -> convert individually
7 - Click accept
8 - Wait

I do all of the above and get the following error:

('UnknownFormatError', u'Could not find ebook in archive'):
Failed to perform job: Convert book: CTD_slides.cbz
Detailed traceback:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "parallel.py", line 760, in worker

Log:
Archive: c:\docume~1\andi\config~1\temp\calibre_0.4.83_6ql5 m1.rar
In Calibre (v.4.83)

I am running XP.

So what am I doing wrong?

This is my first play with Calibre :-( but otherwise it looks great!

Thanks, AndiR

You created a RAR archive and named it CBZ, which is a ZIP archive. Either create a ZIP and give it the .CBZ extension or create the RAR and give it the .CBR extension.

If that doesn't fix it post us a screenshot of the archive contents as they are listed.

Thank you very much

Thanks FangornUK.

That worked perfectly.

Interestingly I also placed the 57 slides as JPEGS in to the read, to see how it would react and it as fine, but the file version is about 5 times quicker!

A great new tool for my work as trainer / facilitator.

Thanks again, AndiR

What would be nice is to be able to convert multiple comics into one book with chapters the way manga graphic novels are. Being able to tag them as series so they automatically go into collections would be nice too.

Might be a reason for me to learn python...

First of all, Thank you Fangorn for your superb work on the ComicLRF... but... here is my request...

I don't like using Calibre (why? huh... I don't like the interface or maybe I'm a command line lover) so it'd be great to have the "full resolution in landscape" command line version as soon as possible.

It opens a brave new world of opportunities for not-manga-comics in my PRS-505.

Thank you very much.

PS: ah! the "manga option" for splitting images will be great too

The Calibre version has a command line option, just use "comic2lrf". All the options in the GUI are available in the command line version. I never use the GUI either

You need v0.4.84 for the "full resolution in landscape" option. Also the "--despeckle" option is worth using all the time to clean up those grainy comics, if you've got a decent Processor.

I've no idea when Kovid will release v0.4.84 but you could use the beta version which looks pretty stable now: http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/downloads/betas

I've just tryed it and it works GREAT! I've attached my first experiment... it's one of the short tales of the "LEVIATHAN" from D'Israeli published in 2000AD (a great story and a very good and personal drawing style), D'Israeli tends to use a very small font for his works so it's a good thing to try the new landscape feature... just pick it up and try

Maybe there is still someone out there that doesn't know but... if you keep pressed the zoom button in the PRS505 you switch orientation on the fly... pretty usefull.

This feature is perfect to convert BIG comics and even RPGs (usually scanned as images and put toghether in a big PDF), I'm trying to convert from PDF to CBR and then to LRF with very good results.

All I can say is THANK YOU!

TOPO,
I'm trying to convert a punisher cbr and get a black bar running from top to bottom to the right of the comic panel. What settings did you use for leviathon (which renders beautifully)?
