Re: Does point thickness interpolate on switch layers ?

Switch layer interpolation does not support smooth interpolation of point widths. However you can use smart bones instead. A smart bone action can control both switch layer and point width at the same time. You would use a smart bone to change your switch layers, then "go inside" the switch layer an...

Re: Smoother background scrolling?

In the image layer properties, click on the "image" tab. At the bottom there is a checkbox for "Higher Quality Render". Check that option and it should smooth out that "wobbly" motion somewhat. I just did a test at various speeds of panning with a vertical grid image and it really helped eliminate t...

Re: Frame by frame animation

sorry to "double post" but I posted this in the other "Frame by frame" topic and thought it might be helpful:

It's about a script I created to playback image sequences without a lot of overhead in the application.

Re: Frame by Frame animation?

I created a simple layer script a long time ago to help with FBF in Anime Studio. I am pretty sure it will work in v10. I just tested it. If you have trouble let me know I can upload a newer version. http://hubumedia.com/anime-studio-services/all-categories/item/image-layer-sequencer-layer-script --...

Re: Masking problem with hidden edges

I tried to set up a sample file similar to the original post to see what could be done to work around this antialising issue. That is what is causing the white lines. It has to do with the mask antialiasing and creating a "lighter" color at the edges. This is not a scientific exact explanation but s...

Re: Looking for an animator for a 5 minute video clip

Another cool idea would be to "mix" live action AND animation. This would cut way down on how much animation you need and would show off the "live" band aspect or if not the live band whatever live footage you shoot. By mixing animation with live action you could reduce the amount of animation requi...

Sorry if my post sounded a bit pissy and scolding. Didn't mean it that way... or maybe... I did just a teeny little bit. ;) I just hear this nearly everyday with every potential customer in my own business. They are fairly large companies that have already spent thousands upon thousands for every ot...

Re: Looking for an animator for a 5 minute video clip

I would suggest finding some way to raise the amount you can spend to at least make it worthwhile for a talented beginner animator. Maybe take your project to a university where students could cut their teeth on a project at a discount for school credit. Many universities offer courses for animation...

Re: Export animation doesn't render brushes

I also thought that somehow ASP 10 was accessing another version folder but it isn't. Obviously the brushes names were changed between 9 and 10, this means that SOMEWHERE, in some string file or something in the application is some sort of "conversion" list to swap out the names of brushes for backw...

Re: How do I make 2 bone structures interact ?

You may want to fiddle with the new "target" property of a bone added in v10. You could have two chains in one bone layer, and a bone not part of any chain. You set the target of the "hand" to this other bone. If for example you had two arm chains and wanted to link the hands, set both hands to targ...

Re: Mormon Secrets- FINALLY finished!!

Nice job! I agree with the previous critique. I think though that the issue with the woman has more to do with "acting" skills. She was reading her lines... but there wasn't a convincing emotion behind it. A few other things that stuck out to me: Because there wasn't a lot of "action" (characters st...

Re: Export animation doesn't render brushes

I may have a workaround but don't know what caused the problem to begin with. It may be a corrupted file, or some issue opening older files in the new v10. I have versions of Anime Studio back to v9.2. This file was created originally in an older version of Anime Studio. The names of the brushes are...

Re: Export animation doesn't render brushes

On a mac here, no problems with brushes rendering. Your problem might be the "double shapes" as mentioned previously. Your custom brushes could be rendering but are covered up by the second shape. As for the path to the brushes in the file format... hmm... I don't see a problem there except that the...

Re: Rigging a worm in AS10

One question. How are you getting the bones to squash? It's a little trick. The bones have Squash and Stretch scaling activated, but that only works for stretching. By default, if the target is close to the bone, the bone never goes lower than its normal scale. To "activate" the lower scale, in fra...

Re: Rigging a worm in AS10

Awesome!
have to try this out. I am thinking this could work for limbs and body with some additional rigging. Will have to experiment.
My thought would be "sections" of "squash and stretch" within body parts that can also be rotated.
