Animated shape ordering not working in 11

I've selected Animated Shape Order on all three vector layers (just geometric shapes I'm testing). I have Allow Animated Layer Effects checked. I've checked on Sort Layers by Depth. Have created shapes from all three vector layers. When I hit shift arrow keys, nothing. Draw: raise shape or lower sha...

Re: Anime Studio 10

I'm just wondering if I (and others) should wait a week for the update and put our projects on hold until then?

If the upgrade is major, it may affect workflow.

It's so cool that a mere .5 update appears to pack a lot of functionality! :o

Re: Help Shape the Future of Anime Studio

Don't know if these have been mentioned but: 1. Integration with After Effects to include file format and cameras possibly (?) 2. Mouse mocap: move the mouse and the animation records to the timeline as you do. Could be useful for tracking video faster and more efficiently. Tracking points is almost...

Why does this happen? Bug in 9.5?

Try this at your computer with AS: Import a movie file of something you'd like to trace. Start at 0. Go about halfway into your video and begin tracing. Allow drawing tools on frames other than 0. Does the video randomly jump back to the beginning in the middle of your tracing? I can't seem to find ...

Re: poser imports

Short answer is not exactly...but it will import textures and you can move the figure in 3D space if I recall correctly. I have only tried it once or twice. Poser import will also bring in all the morph dials, so yes, you can articulate the model exactly the same way you would in Poser, minus the li...

Most difficult thing to animate?

Just looking for personal anecdotes out of curiosity. Mine are, in order:

1. fingers and grabs
2. turning from back to side (either head or body or both)
3. walks or runs from different angles (hi, low, etc)

Anybody have any other tough moves that they dread or avoid?

In 9.x I was building a complex hand rig as follows: HAND bone layer ---FINGER bone layer ---FINGER vector drawing of finger HAND vector drawing of hand Move the parent layer, and everything else moved with it automatically. Never had to offset bones or even bind layers or points. It just worked. Co...

Content library not appearing in V9 pro

Is this a flash issue? Opening the library window just opens a blank screen, even after content folders are set up.

Re: Are switch layers preferred in animated series?

I never said that AS was used in network cartoon series, only that the PROCESS of switching between turns was similar. I have no idea what software package is used in Justice League...it's probably a custom version of Toonboom or TV Paint. Not sure I'm allowed to post the following link because I'm ...

Re: Are switch layers preferred in animated series?

I read somewhere and a former Hollywood animator once told me that series like that are produced by a method similar to switch layers, i.e., the basic moves like jumping, flying, walking, etc. are determined. Then they are drawn with many turns like 10, 20, 30, 40 degrees, etc. so that they can quic...
