Greetings. I am looking for some software / game engine 2D that I can use with C++ that will allow me to do the following:
Be able to load images of various layers of different clipart with transparent backgrounds to create one uniform image.
These images will need to be placed on specific locations on the screen; especially in order to ensure that they line up correctly on top of each other
Be able to have a great database capabilities, so that I can load thousands of separate images and be able to code which images should be generated based on a user’s request for one uniform image
Have some type of GUI interface for users to enter the type of image they want to create
I need a program with built in libraries that will allow me to create 2-D environments to place the pictures they create into. For example some images I my want a black background; others, like if person selects bird I may want a cloud background.
Be able to quickly handle thousands of data, and based on a user’s input a specific image will be generate to locate a group of clip art images based on the specification they requested
I am not an expert at C++ programmer, but developed a few little games using IRRLICHT game engine; so I do not mind coding, it is just the GUI and the libraries are very nice to have; I do not want to code for things that could be standardized for me
People should be able to be able to point to a place on the image and words should describe what is there.
I anticipate distributing this product so I would want to have complete licensing rights
I could spend up to $500.00 on software / engine program.
I am not in need to use a game engine necessarily. Anything that can do 2d is fine, or handle images
Thank you so much!
I know this my not be what you typically help people with, but if you can point me in the direction of a software package / game engine that could help I would be very appreciative.
