Rhoel,

Adobe Audition is still part of the CS5 Master Suite. Just bought it near the end of last year. I don't know if you can purchase it separately, but I would think you could.

In Photoshop save your images as PNG files. I don't think Anime Studio will import Photoshop format images, but PNG works fine. PNG also supports alpha channels (transparency), which is good for importing images without a background. I you have a lot of images to convert you can set up an action in ...

Thanks, slowtiger, that works! I was trying to do it using the soft edge effect but it wasn't working; hadn't thought of using the blur. Also, I didn't know you could use two masks at once - that's brilliant.

thanks,

Transparency in a gradient or a mask

I'm trying to make an object that will be full color at one end, fading to transparent at the other end. Not animated transparency, but a gradient to transparency, from full alpha to 0 alpha. I've tried masking with a soft edge and it doesn't achieve the effect I want. I also tried giving the object...

What a cool workshop that must have been! And the result is excellent. Animation, music, story, characters - it's all there. Excellent collaboration.

If it exports as SVG, then you can open it in Illustrator and save it as an Illustrator file for importing into AS. I don't know how many points there would be, though; I imagine that could be a problem. Also, we know how AS imports Illustrator files - not always that well. But it seems it COULD be ...

Take some art classes and learn to actually DRAW. It's a BASIC animation skill. AS won't teach you to draw, it's just a tool. Drawing comes from you. If you take the time and effort to learn the basic skill it will reward you endlessly. If you want to try to teach yourself drawing skills, get the bo...

Visually very impressive; I like the look. But from the trailer I can't figure out what the story is supposed to be. There's virtually no information on his website.

No word about a 7.2. Why would they work on 7.2? They just released 8. They should fix the bugs in 8 (which are probably the same ones in 7) and make it stable. I am currently going through a tech support problem with SM concerning 8 constantly crashing, with many emails back and forth, and it can'...

Thanks ulrik. I'll give this a try on my Mac at home later this evening. I'll let you know how it goes. If it works, then I'll give a try installing it on my Mac here at work.
