Re: Firelight and Shadow

Ah! Now this requires a completely different setup, I imagined some character with fire on his head or so ... OK. Fire and character in 1 folder, duplicate this folder. Bottom one as usual inflected by shadow. Top one: make the character mask the fire (the only thing in this folder would be the fire...

Re: Firelight and Shadow

I just have to remember how we did this in the olden days with in-camera multiple exposures and masks. First pass would be character plus shadow at 50%, second pass just character at 50% (resulting in a 50% shadow). Third pass would be a back-lit fire (everything black except the fire). Just duplica...

Spherical maps work in Moho since v9. I did some tests drawn in TVPaint:

Re: Can I mask specific colors/styles?

The first thing I think of would be the "shaded" effect in each shape. Simple and good enough for some time. If you want to animate the shading, then you need to create a sepearate shape or stroke and mask it within the shape. You can use a complete character with lots of levels as a mask, although ...

Re: Why do bones make imported body parts (images, not vectors) distort?

That's flexible binding, which is on by default. If you don't want this, you need to use Layer binding with your images.

how many layers?

Somebody wrote a script to count all layers in an AfterFX project and sent it to Cyriak Harris (if you don't know his work, shame on you.) Here's the numbers for some of his videos:

Re: Camera tips?

Have a look at life action films: they simply wouldn't do it that way. They would place the camera in a way they could just pan from box to cloud while following focus. As a general rule, don't do camera movements which contain both in an out zooming in the same scene - that's something reserved for...

You didn't mention your OS. Unfortunately OS sounds like OSX too much.

Re: Import video

Check the video file name: better no blanks and no non-7bit-Ascii-characters (also in the path).

Re: Audio output

OSX in its newer incarnations has become quite stubborn about audio routing. Before 10.6, audio applications were able to easily route where they wanted. Since then it's a hodgepodge of in-app settings and the old trusty audio panel in the systems settings. Moho doesn't have any ability to route, so...

Re: Character Rig animation test

Looks good. This is a nice style for animation aimed at children, it can be a bit choppy, no need for all-smooth movements.

Re: optimal image resolution and sizes inside MOHO

It's simple: you have your project dimensions: HDTV 1920 x 1080, so a background for this should be of the same size or a bit larger. If you want to zoom in, you need larger bitmaps. I have my assets sorted in 3 groups: 1. everything 1:1, that's for scenes where there's no zoom or pan. 2. double siz...

Re: Gradually slow down animation

Don't forget to have that spinner go back and forth some times at the end before it comes to rest.
