Maybe I should have put it more clearly: An essential function like adding points to an existing shape belongs into the main tools, not into some script section which should be reserved for more complex and seldom-used operations. What's wrong with wanting to have an application which is really good...

I will not use a script to do simple stuff like adding points which should be possible to do with the tip of a pen, since this is standard behaviour of all vector programs I know. There's a reason why FreeHand and Illustrator survived a decade: they were designed in a user-friendly way - not everywh...

Of course there's need for an additional illustration program, at least as long as Moho doesn't support Bezier curves with their comfortable handles. I spent hours yesterday to just create some smooth, straight lines in Moho. Among the things I badly missed that moment were: - a line drawing tool fo...

"more content" could be fine, if it means that all tutorials get to be redone and extended and spiced up with some more intuitive examples. And having pre-rigged examples in a software package is an important point if you want to sell big. I've dug up an idea about preventing Moho from being recogni...

Papagayo 1.2 will not play on Mac OS 10.4.7 because of Python. I've tried and tested different Python updates, but with no success.

Since I need the german breakdown which I nbelieve is included in 1.2, I'm stranded now.

And with the hand tool (or hold down right mouse button) you can drag your workspace around.

Downgrading QT is impossible, since Apple doesn't support any older version, nor allows to download it.

Just to add my vote: As others already pointed out, "Anime studio" sounds like a cheap toy for children - I've seen quite a lot of bad software packages with pre-drawn characters to be put into limited motion, and they were all named in this fashion. It would be a shame to market Moho under its poss...

Batch search-and-replace of a bunch of text files can be done with many applications. On the Mac I use BBEdit for that purpose.

Just some points from another experienced user: I use Freehand, haven't ever touched Illustrator. I even use Freehand v5.0.1 which is stone-age compared to actual versions. If I want to create graphics which need accuracy, I construct them in Freehand. If I want hand drawings, I do them on paper (wi...

Answer for #2: double-click the vector layer and then "Vectors". "Noisy Outlines" is an option which lets your lines wiggle at random from frame to frame. Experiment with diofferent setting. Note: this effect is lost when exported to .swf, it only works with bitmapped output.

Moho crashes while exporting to Quicktime

Moho 5.4 on a G5 dual 1.8 GHz PPC, OS 10.4.7 with QT 7.1.2 The crash occurs every time when I try to export animation to a quicktime movie, no matter which codec I choose or how many frames or at which frame I start exporting. It doesn't matter which moho file I use. Export to swf works. Export to P...

I can just but repeat myself: no professional does his work with only one tool. Different tasks ask for different tools, and while some tasks may be done with any tool more or less satisfying, others profit a great deal from specialised tools. If studios rely on only one tool, they decided to live w...

Snce you use several programs, mistakes can occur everywhere. In Moho: check that there is no background in your scene. Export as flashfile as usual. In Flash: don't add a background. In the "Export" panel, check "transparent". That should be all that's necessary. With the above steps I created this...
