Re: No Pinbones?

Something to try: Create a regular bone and then set the length to 0. This should change it into a Pin Bone (a pin bone is essentially a bone with no length.) Does that work or does the bone disappear? Another thing to try: What happens when you disable your Custom Content Folder? Just wondering if ...

Re: No Pinbones?

That sounds odd. AFAIK, they should just be available with Add Bones in 12.5, no need to 'turn them on'. Just to confirm, you're only clicking (with no dragging,) to create them right? Do regular bones appear when you click and drag? Also, you're on frame 0, correct? I know these are basic questions...

Re: Update action from reference

I should clarify the above: You can edit the action for the reference, but to do this you first need to select and open the original while the Action is selected. Then , you can select the reference layer and edit the vectors in that. If you try to edit the reference layer directly under the Action,...

Re: Update action from reference

I always found that annoying too but, no, you need to open the original first.

The 'workaround' is to break the reference layer, which I sometimes do if I find myself revision it often.

Optionally, I guess you could use Layer Shortcuts to create a selector for the original layer.

Re: Anyone interested in a Discord?

Huh, I think you're right. I hop in here routinely to check on new posts so I don't think I noticed this until you mentioned it. I just looked through my email and it looks like the last email I received from Lost Marble was back in February. Edit: Checked my forum email notification settings and th...

Re: Bone flip deforms artwork

Bezier curves aren't actually buggy, they're behaving exactly as expected. They're great work drawing shapes with fewer points and greater accuracy but they're somewhat unpredictable for interpolation and deformation. Back when Mike Clifton implemented Bezier handles in Moho, he posted a video that ...

Re: Moho's future

I'd also like to see a native equivalent of MQC, the on-screen button panel I made for Moho. Other paint/animation programs have user-customizable panels where you can add clickable buttons for almost any available command, script, or tools. (Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, Toon Boom, and Painter come...

Re: Moho's future

I think there are still alot of things that could get Moho better. Think of a reliable vector drawing engine. Constructing characters in Moho is okay, importing bitmap characters is okay. But native drawing in Moho would be great (and I don't mean this weird drawing stuff in M13). This would be gro...

Re: Moho's future

Do you guys think it will still exist for some time? How close is it to become an industry standard? Re: 'industry standard', it's being used at two major animation studios that I'm aware of. Where I work, we use Moho Pro 12.5 for sequences in our TV shows on Netflix and other streaming channels. Y...

Re: Is it bad practice to scale layers at frame 0?

I generally leave artwork layers at their original size on frame zero and scale the contained vector artwork instead. By keeping the layers themselves at 100%, animating and modifying the rig is more predictable. Understandably, it may not seem practical to do this for many vector layers. In this ca...

Re: Stop layer translation affecting bone dynamics

I avoid using bone dynamics for hair. To me, hair with bone dynamics never looks as good or as convincing as keyframed hair bones. If you want to automate hair animation, I suggest using a Smart Bone Action with some added keyframed animation as needed. Usually I have the SBA animate the broad motio...

Re: Opacity of colours not retained in files opened on a different laptop.

I would definitely check what Wes mentioned. Tip: In case the issue is that styles have actually changed to full opacity, in the future you might consider using a custom style for semi-transparent items. This way, if the style on many items changes accidentally, you can easily change them all back t...

Re: Clip Studio Paint exports SVG now

I wasn't aware of that. I normally draw all my comics using Clip Studio Paint's vector tools so I'll give it a try sometime. My one concern is that CSP's vector tools generate an awful lot of points because the tool is designed for precision and editability, and it's not optimized for animation. But...
