Thanks for sharing

Was there a clip with a dog character in it?

Hi Gnaws,
I know it's almost a year since this thread was posted, but I only stumbled upon it now. Is the animation clip still being shown somewhere? I got to see the dog.
I like your site, by the way. Bold characters, strong colors, fresh style.

Re: Render of still implements masking differently .png expo

The problem was when an imported .AVI file was being masked, only the mask was shown. The .avi file did not appear. Without the mask, the .avi file appeared. Rendering just the frame with control R rendered correctly. Export Animation as JPG or PNG renders incorrectly. For now I just manually render...

Flexible binding? What's that? If you mean the "Bind Points" tool It won't work on a png. I found in the menu "Bone" the Flexi-Bind Layer" Button but it won't do anything... flexible binding is less work. Did you try the tutorials? Unfortunately, this software, and animation in particular, is not n...

Seems like the easiest solution (also the only one i thought of before stopping) is to just "do it twice". In other words, on mask group for the reveal. Another mask group for the hide. Then I just copied the swipe layer - which holds the shape used to either hide or reveal - into both masking group...

Render of still implements masking differently .png export

Is there some reason why a Render with Ctrl-R of a still to a ping image could be any different than the sequence of images using Export Animation - PNG? I have some masking of a video by a vector layer. It looks right in the still render, but the export animation of a sequence of stills loses the u...

Re: Animating with pictures, a la Jib Jab

How do I do animation using just pictures? Kinda like Jib Jab. Just the first few instructions would be helpful. Thank you Welcome to the forum. I'm usually excited with a new app and really want to hit the ground running, start right away. Manuals? We don't need no stinkin' badges... But seriously...

Instigating extraordinary images in the public's mind is the artist's imperative.

My explanation was not clear. The two images don't cover the whole project area, think of a donut and a slice of swiss cheese in front of a house. I want to preserve the transparent parts of the donut and the cheese as the wipe goes by.

If the images themselves don't move, you just need 1 mask, in the group on top. Only the mask moves. It is like a wipe from one scene to another. Image A and B are now put in a parent group P. The mask M is above A and B in group P? I can get M to reveal or hide both A and B in such a structure. Bu...

mask so one layer appears while one disappears

Is there an easy way to have a wipe which blocks one layer and shows another? I'd like to have a wipe like those old batman shows. I can only think of using a brute force method, and then somehow copying the two masks. Could have two rectangle shapes both controlled by the same bone. One rect adds t...

Minor version update prep

Are there any steps, documented or otherwise, we should take when we upgrade a minor version of ASPro say from 6.1 to 6.2?

Re: short term multicore fix

Thanks for the suggestion rogermate, but I think funksmaname has already tried that (see page 13 of this thread). It seems that as long as AS starts up with all cores enabled, you will still encounter the bug, even if you confine AS to a single core before rendering. I'm wondering if there is some ...
