Re: Mask showing the opposite on the working view

Thanks for the answers, I will try to work arround those problems. The worst is that there are some drawings that I cannot see at all in the workspace, so I have to work seeing only the points and render frecuently. I will try the things you sugested, and maybe references can help with the drawings ...

Re: Mask showing the opposite on the working view

The project window had a problem displaying some masks since day 1, I don't care as long as the render is fine. I can can live with that since the render is fine, but I would like to understand what I've done to avoid it if possible. The messed proyect has the same mask settings, the differences I ...

Mask showing the opposite on the working view

Hi! I'm having this problem with Moho 12.5: I have a group layer called "FACE_MASK" that is the typical basic "Hide all" type mask. Inside, I have in this order: [*]One "nose" vector layer that shows outside of the face because I have it with the "don't mask this layer" option checked. [*]One "eyes"...

Re: Not sure how to do this (if possible): Heirarchy swap layer

Plug: I have more tricks that simplify turning setups but that requires a examples and much longer explanations. If you're interested, I'm planning long format 'Animaker' rigging and animation videos. These will likely be paid classes but I'll try to keep the cost very reasonable. Will post announc...

Re: Smartbone dials: separate actions VS unique action

Don't get too hung up on learning every possible technique--it's possible that you may not ever need some of that stuff. Just get good with a few techniques and see how far you can push them. Moho's 'basics' can actually take you a long way when you know them well. Re: mixed smart bones, make sure ...

Smartbone dials: separate actions VS unique action

While I'm getting more and more confident with Moho, I still ask myself something since day 1: when I make a new smartbone dial, I don't know if I should go for the separate actions or one unique action. I'm talking about complex rigs, for example: when making a "head turn Left-Right" Smartbone dial...

Re: Tips for using meshes with vector layers

The problem is what I found here: https://www.lostmarble.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=186574#p186574 Your file can be solved by scaling the smart mesh points up until the eye quits jumping on frame one, and then scale the smart mesh layer back down to the original size. The issue has already been repo...

Re: Tips for using meshes with vector layers

Sure, glad to help. I'm sorry I can't explain the original problem...I want to take another look at it later and try to understand it better myself. I made it! I dont understand why this problem happens, but after many tests now I know what is happening and how to solve it without having to make ch...

Re: Tips for using meshes with vector layers

Here's an example of how I like to use a custom mesh warp for the eye... I hope this helps and gives you some ideas to try. Good luck! Thank you so much! I always learn a lot from your explanations on this forum. That was exactly the technique I was trying to explore, to use meshes for head turns l...

Re: Tips for using meshes with vector layers

Aditional findings: *Problem definition: the mesh seems to destroy the drawing it controles (you have to go to frame 1 or more too see it), it looks like the drawing implodes to the center of the layer. I have to make the mesh so much bigger than it should be just to prevent that from happening. [*]...

Re: Tips for using meshes with vector layers

Which version of Moho are you using? FWIW, I'm using the latest 13 and mesh warping seems to work fine here. Yes, posting an example project will help us see what he problem is. Without seeing anything, my guess is that the vector drawing wasn't created to support the deformations your attempting w...

Tips for using meshes with vector layers

Hi! I've been doing lots of tests with meshes over vector drawings to understand how they work but I failed miserably. I'm taking notes on the things I'm understanding but there are still some things that I just can't: 1. I create a vector drawing. I create a mesh. I go to the vector drawing layer s...

Re: Cleared animation from Document but didn't work

Ok finally I found the problem. I was going to delete the post but I think it's better if I let the solution here so maybe that can help someone searching for it. Like I suspected, Moho did everything right. The thing is that "Animation - Clear animation from document" deletes all the keyframes from...
