Re: Mixing Moho licenses pro and debut

"Software may be used by any number of people and may be installed and activated on up to three (3) computers so long as no possibility exists of the Software being used at more than one (1) computer at any given time." Ah, thanks for the correction. Normally, I have one activation on the workstati...

Re: Mixing Moho licenses pro and debut

Yes, a single license is for one user. You can activate it on up to three computer but they all need to be for the same user. Typically, this would be for a desktop and a mobile computer (laptop or tablet PC.) The third activation is a 'backup' or can be used for rendering on an additional computer....

Re: Animation icon clutter

Consolidate Layer channels will flatten the entire timeline which can make it difficult to animate with any subtlety or nuance. Enabling this feature might be okay when you wish to animate strictly pose-to-pose, but it could get frustrating for detailed animation. Note that there are two places to s...

Re: Animation icon clutter

Are you talking about the redundant channels that appear as you animate bones in Moho? If so, yes, you can eliminate almost all of that clutter.

Re: Mixing Moho licenses pro and debut

I believe for the most part Debut can be used to animate Moho Pro projects that utilize advanced features, but it can't be used to create or edit those features. Examples include: Smart Bone Actions, Target Bones, custom meshes. Debut also doesn't support certain 'basic' Pro features, but you can wo...

Re: transparent Background

Just an extra bit of info: if you use the MagicYUV codec, note that even though there are options for higher color depths, Moho can only output 8-bits per channel, so it's pointless to use these options with Moho. Hopefully, the developers will increase Moho's bit-depth capabilities in the future.

Re: transparent Background

It's best to render out a png sequence and then composite or compile the frames in another program. For a variety of reasons (described at the end of this post,) this a common workflow for most animation software, especially when the intent is compositing. But if you really need to render to a movie...

Re: Is it possible to copy an action for a smart bone?

You can do this, but you need to edit the names of the Smart Bone and actions in the duplicate to avoid conflict. It may be less confusing to do this in a copy of the file and then copy paste the renamed version to the original file. Another way is to create a new Smart Bone and then copy the keyfra...

Re: Cost of upgrade to Moho Pro 13?

I too recommend upgrading to Moho Pro 12.5. In my opinion, Moho Pro 12.5 is currently the most stable and useful version. FWIW, we still use 12.5 at the studio where I work. Moho Pro 13 introduced intriguing new features, like Paint Tools and an improved Actions window, but it also created serious w...

Re: tie bones to switch layers

Excellent point! Not having interpolation wasn't a problem for us when I used the SBD setup because we could make the lip-sync appear smoother by additionally squashing and stretching the Switch layer itself (be sure the set the origin in the center of the mouth Switch layer.) However , as Wes noted...

Re: Masks in mask. Don't work?

Without seeing your actual setup, it's a little hard to say what's wrong. Based on past experience, here are some suggestions: For a variety of reasons, Mask previews are not always accurate. When you render, does it look the same or any differently? (i.e., correct or otherwise?) Mask preview errors...

Re: Should I Purchase a Drawing Tablet?

BTW: The old Wacom Cintiq 27 is ok too. The Cintiq 27QHD is what my wife uses. It worked great for about 3 years then it suddenly had trouble staying on for more than a few seconds. We sent it off to be fixed last week. She's already missing it very much. :) Her only complaint about the tablet is t...

Re: Should I Purchase a Drawing Tablet?

Ok, I'm going to take back the above comment about Bluetooth performance, at least with the Intuos Pro 13 and my laptop. This test is obviously limited, but so far with the current Wacom drivers, Win update, and the latest version of Photoshop, Bluetooth support seems pretty decent and I'm not seein...
