WatchmakerSuite ,

Converts PICTs to PNGs just as it says.

I am converting Richard Dawkins’ classic Blind Watchmaker Suite of programs from Mac Classic up to Carbon (and in the near future, up to Cocoa and iOS, using FreePascal and Lazarus.) This product (Rezycle) allowed me to extract hand-drawn PICT resources as PNG files. The process doubtless rasterizes the images as PICTs are vector graphics and PNGs are bitmap images, but that’s good enough for me. After slaving through ResEdit, Rez, DeRez, XCode Interface Builder, and other obsolete RSRC file manipulators, Rezycle came through for me. Notes: original RSRC files were in a classic Stuffit file (.sit), which I unpacked on OS X Yosemite using Stuffit Expander, then dragged-and-dropped the resources files one by one onto Rezycle.

On behalf of myself and Dawkins, Thanks for developing this incredible application, a very important project would dead in the water without it.

Great support

I had the probably common "cant find any resources" message popping up, and I couldn't figure out why. I spent a while on it. I emailed the developer, who offered to spin up his old mac to figure out whats going on.

Before he had a chance, I figured out my issue: there really was no resource fork. I was removing it in transfers (in my defense, the last time I used MacOS 8 was so long ago).

He hasn't sent me an email laughing yet. So, good, great app, converted all my snd resources into aiff, and it's pretty brain dead easy to use.

Simple and Sweet

The app did exactly what I needed – extracting and converting snd files – and was super simple too! I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time and I’m sure I’ll be using it many times in the future.
