animated ansi arts arent supported: example here
if the file is NOT saved in [newest version of pablodraw i guess] its not displayed completely/correctly: example here

the width is also slightly smaller than an actual ansi image, which makes it look more blurry than it actually is.

since a lot of people just go by the preview and dont check the file in an extra tool, theres a very, very high chance that ansi arts get downvoted because of the renderer.

1) fix the renderer or
2) remove it to avoid confusion or
3) allow render uploads (.png pictures maybe)

pigdevil wrote the one we have now
its better than nothing
in ansi, animation and blinking text are two different things
could let the render spill out of the box its in for pixel perfect action

maybe open the render in a different tab like the music player?

the only thing that'll do is put the buggy render into a seperate window. the auto-renderer needs to either be fixed or replaced entirely by either a rewrite or a replacement. personally, i'm for either 1 or 3 since it still allows the entry to be easily viewable for voting, but all of these are good ideas regardless.

ansilove.org has a js version of their viewer/converter for webpage viewability. No idea if it works, 'cuz I ain't got no web larnin's.
