Re: Not sure how to do this (if possible): Heirarchy swap layer

I use drawing swaps in for nearly all the rigs I created for our Netflix shows. Technically, they're hybrid setups--they switch with limited animation to smooth the transitions. Here's a simplified description of the setup: First, I split the head layers from the rest of the body, so the head and to...

Re: Swishy transparency

I agree with alanthebox: just render out a PNG image sequence. In Moho, if the background is disabled, Moho will automatically render the image with a transparent background. Then you can use another program to compile the sequence as a movie file that properly supports alpha channel. I typically us...

Re: Importing PSD files and rendering

This is probably getting OT at this point but, the reason I prefer using PNG over PSD in Moho is for flexibility and dependability. For example, with PNG, I can update the images by simply overwriting or replacing them with a files with the same filenames. With PSD, Moho is tracking the layers by us...

Re: Groups vs Layer Comps

Layer Comps is a powerful feature in Moho and it generally has two uses. The first is, it's a great system for breaking out a scene in layers for compositing. Use it to set up all the separate elements and combinations of elements so you can efficiently edit almost anything visual aspect of the scen...

Re: Importing PSD files and rendering

I haven't seen this issue (probably because I normally work with PNG layers in Moho*) but maybe it has to do with color space settings in Photoshop? Moho doesn't recognize this feature so you may need to disable it or use a different setting. Also, if you're using a higher color bit-depth setting th...

Re: Big really hard project looming - planning?

Good luck! It sounds like the project is coming together for you, and I hope you can share it here someday. :) Sorry for dropping the ball on posting that spreadsheet example. It's been a very hectic two weeks for me and when I get home, I just want to crash immediately. I'll try post an example wit...

Re: HELP! Can't Run Moho 12.5 on Windows 10

Ugh. That's unfortunate. I hope you can get it running soon. In the meantime, I'll pass this info to the devs. I know they're focused on Moho 13 and they may not have the bandwidth to revisit 12.5, but maybe if it's a simple fix? Fingers crossed. FWIW, Moho 12.5 runs well on my laptop (Xeon), my wor...

Re: HELP! Can't Run Moho 12.5 on Windows 10

Do you have an AMD Ryzen processor? Another user reported a similar problem a few weeks ago and that was one of the differences between my system where Moho 12.5 runs on Win 10. We're not sure that was the cause but if you have a similar setup, I can pass this info onto the devs. Here's the other th...

Hope you can get it and have it up and running soon. 12.5 was a solid release. We're still using it at my workplace.

Re: Is there any way to get MOHO 12 for OS X 10.11

I don't know about eBay but years ago I purchased a digital download for version 9.0 from Amazon. At the time, it was cheaper to buy the software through Amazon than buying the upgrade version directly from SM and, yes, it came with a serial number. I just now checked the software purchases in my Am...

Re: Music creation/editing software

I have Sound Forge Studio and I have looked at Acid Express..a free version of Acid...but it was too basic. However, the interface looked similar to Vegas Movie Studio, which I have so maybe that is the best solution. Yes, that's another thing I like about Acid: the UI is very similar to Vegas and ...

Re: Music creation/editing software

I'm not an expert but I like to dabble with music programs a lot, and I've always liked using Acid Pro to create and edit music. It's pretty easy to learn and there's a lot of training material available. Using the program is fairly intuitive once you learned the basics. The Pro version is not cheap...

Re: 4K Quicktime PNG smooth playback?

Do you mean smooth playback in Moho or in another program? In Moho, it's not likely because Moho doesn't cache video data. For interactivity, you might consider using a JPEG sequence as a proxy and swap it out to a higher quality render for final. JPEG is poor quality but it streams well and is fram...

Re: Quick settings, and multi layers.

Yeah, right-clicking is much faster. As a matter of fact, I removed the 'Quick Settings' column from my Moho because it's kinda redundant and I'd rather use the space in the Layers window for other things. FWIW, I posted a video a few months ago with this and other optimization tips here: https://vi...
