Notate will be a tool for generating low-color bmps of staff music notation.
I’m using Nasu to draw the sprites and store them as the NES .chr data format. Those sprites are blitted onto a color-indexed image, then the image is rendered into a BMP.Nasu, a pixel editor zlib, a compression library
In the interest of keeping the tool as simple as possible and removing any dependencies on complex compression libraries, I wanted an uncompressed output format. You can use ImageMagick to compress the result:
