Re: Simple Mask Question

Many thanks. I have made a note of this. The manual says for the group layer "Hide all" is the most common
option when using layer masking, so I wasn't experimenting with Reveal All.

Thanks again. Richard

Simple Mask Question

I have a photograph of a wall with a window. I want to "cut out" the window so I can render it to a PNG and when I bring it into my video editor, lower layers will show through the window. So I have: >Group Layer (Mask This Layer) >>Photograph >>Vector Layer with a shape in the shape of the window H...

Re: ASP 11 Style Questions

Just name your styles appropriingly, say dad.skin, dad.hair, then daughter.skin, daughter.hair, etc. This way both will live in the same project no problems. Also, doing it this way you could save a styles set for day colors, night colors, etc. for each characters, then import them as needed. Thank...

ASP 11 Style Questions

In ASP 11, if I have a character with a style called "Skin" and I import a different character with a style called "Skin" I end up with two different styles called "Skin." In what way is this an advantage? Is there anything new we can do with styles? Can I merge them? Pre ASP11, I could edit the .an...

Re: Help Shape the Future of Anime Studio

A basic 'auto-rigging' script would be pretty cool. Basically, the animator would setup their character using a specific file structure method and then activate the script which will auto-rig the character and give it a bunch of actions that they keep stored in an actions file. The user would then ...

Re: Help Shape the Future of Anime Studio

Additional thoughts on the Action Library. Since I'm already doing this, I can say from experience it would be great to be able to save actions by bone color. If I have a stock action for a head scratch, and I import it, it will reset all the other bones as well. So if my head scratch was created fo...

Re: Help Shape the Future of Anime Studio

Add Layers By Reference. I'm a cutout animator, and a lot of my "parts" are used for multiple characters, particularly hands, mouths, feet, etc. which are typically switch layers. Whenever I add to or modify one of my parts, all of my existing characters are outdated. It would be fantastic to be abl...

Re: How to become the arm in front of a table ??

New Solution. In the layer titled "Mask", I have a square roughly in front of the character. By changing that square, I can "cut up" the table on the fly. I can also reorder the group layer "TableMask" in front of or behind whatever layers I need as someone drops his hand below the table etc. Charac...

Re: How to become the arm in front of a table ??

New complication. I want the table to hide parts of the torso and show parts. No problem. The torso goes above the mask. I want the forearm to show above the table. The forearm goes below the mask. So far so good. Except the forearm needs to be in front of the torso, if say, it crosses across the ch...

Re: How to become the arm in front of a table ??

yep - that's not right... I've raised a bug report. Quick and dirty fix: Hayasidist, you are awesome. Thanks. I much prefer using this method to cutting up table sections. Perhaps someday I will have a full understanding of the masking system. After all, I finally cracked the Styles enigma. In the ...
