Mirror an animation 180

Post by TomA2011 » Mon May 16, 2011 4:52 pm

Hello,

First post here and a new user to Anime Studio.

I've created a walking animation and now need to flip it 180 degrees and render. Is there an easy way to do this? I'm using bones to do the animation.

Thanks!
Tom

You can mirror entire layers, just select the top layer of your animation and click flip layer button

Thanks for the help.

Can you tell me where the flip button is please? Can't seem to find it.

Thanks

EDIT - sorry, found it in a previous post:

"the flip button is in the translate layer tool... click that then look at the top of the screen"

Excellent!

Flip it

Hey Tom,

Put your entire character or layers into a group folder. Hit the duplicate button in the layers window. Then just hit the flip layers horizontally button at the top of the screen. It's a line with arrow ends on the left and right of it. If you don't see it at the top, make sure you hit one of the move, scale rotate buttons on the layers menu on the bottom left tools. This will make the flip buttons appear on top! Hope this helps.
