Re: Edit freehand tool with saved settings?

Ahh, thanks for your help! I tried updating the tool list in the custom content folder but didn't see any change. Updating the tool list within the actual main installation directory did the trick, though!

Re: Moho's future

Do you guys think it will still exist for some time? How close is it to become an industry standard I'm sure the software (as it currently exists) will be usable for quite some time. Case in point - I still use Autodesk/Softimage XSI 2012, which I believe was released back during Windows 7, but it ...

Re: Edit freehand tool with saved settings?

So glad I found this thread! It's awesome having a stroke-only tool/shortcut! My only question is (after duplicating and adjusting the lm_freehand.lua file), is it possible to have this tool appear in the "Draw" tools sidebar next to the original freehand tool, rather than appearing in the "Other" s...

Re: Reasonably Priced Laptops for Moho 12?

When not using my desktop, I also run Moho 12 (and now 13) on a modestly spec'ed/priced refurbished Surface Book (i7, 8GB RAM). Although my desktop runs the software much better, I usually use the laptop to work on smaller elements individually (and with the display quality set to medium or low), ra...

Re: Moho's future

So what? The old versions will still work fine. Why are people so obsessed with "do respectable studios use it"? If it fits for your project, use it. If not, don't. I'm assuming their concern might involve investing more time into learning Moho, only to find that there aren't many freelance opportu...

Re: towyard: the game!

Sorry to hear you're leaving Moho for Toon Boom Harmony. I agree that Harmony has more advanced freehand drawing tools and is better for FBF work but for advanced puppet rigging, IMO, it's actually a lot easier to do this in Moho. But if you do get Harmony, there's no reason you can't use both prog...

towyard: the game!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ftmvvcsXxY I think this might be my last Moho cartoon for awhile. I'm going to give ToonBoom a try and see if it better aligns with the workflow I seem to be moving into. For this cartoon, I wanted to get a hand-drawn look, but without having to FBF everything, so, I...

Re: Moving limbs between layers

I think this problem has many solutions, so, I can only give my personal approach (I'm sure there are better ones out there!). Are you using the Pro version of Moho? If so, I would most likely put the perch below the main bird rig, and then right click on the bird rig and create a reference layer. D...

Re: white line

I think a little more context may be necessary to troubleshoot. Do you have an image you could share of the render, the workspace, and maybe the layer hierarchy?

Re: Swishy transparency

As long as there's no background layer art, you should just be able to go to File/Export Animation, and change the format to Image Sequence. PNG seems to be the preferred format for exporting with alpha.

Re: Unimited Animated Layer Order with Smartbones?

In some projects, I have created a specific 'layer order' smart bone. Then I rotated that bone with step keys every time I wanted to change the order. To work properly, no other smart bone modifies the layer order. PS: This layer order smart bone is normally around 50 frames long. I just put all th...
