  • Clean up crazy confusing console output


so it seems the plan is at the very least to make the console output useful to those developers and testers who need it. perhaps as Synfig becomes more mature and stable then it can be hidden away so that ordinary users do not need to see it but in my humble opinion the more Synfig can do to get people into development and testing the better the software will become.

Fixed in Synfig Studio 1.0 RC4 - http://www.synfig.org/cms/en/news/synfig-studio-10-release-candidate-4/

User can force console window for debug puerposes by passing "--console" or "-c" option to synfigstudio.exe. The separate start menu shortcut for console mode is also provided.
