FBF freehand tool stops working on later frames

Postby exile » Tue Sep 26, 2017 9:00 am

Using Moho Pro 12.2. Was really getting into Chucky's FBF template based on reference layers for blue pencil, clean layer, etc. The blue layer worked fine. After 5 frames on the pencil layer the freehand tool only drew blank vector lines. By going to the active frame, I could see the points, but still couldn't get a visible line - not with the line width tool, not not by selecting the points as a shape and trying different styles. If I go back a frame, the freehand tool works again.

Deleting the movie I used as reference to lighten the load on the computer didn't help, either.

Can anyone tell me what's happening? I can upload the file and post a link if necessary.

Thanks,
Steve

I'd have to see a file to troubleshoot it.

Hi Wes,
'Thanks for the quick answer. Here's a direct link to the file: http://singadream.com/4forumfriends_htm_files/close%20hand%20moviedel.moho

Should there be a problem, the page with the link at the top: http://singadream.com/4forumfriends.htm

In the rendering view, the lines are there! And on the frame layer too, now - but I can't draw on individual frame layers, only on the layers above labeled "pencil", "clean", etc., So I can't see what I'm drawing as I draw. It was the same on this computer where I have 12.3 installed instead of 12.2. l suspect it's some simple problem.

Appreciate your help,
Steve

Thanks a million - I only found a duplicate layer 7. When I deleted one (in an out of order position), I could draw on the other frames as hoped, all was normal.

I have no idea how I managed to do that, I wonder if I broke the reference at some point? And if the software then automatically created a duplicate frame 7?

In any case I'm glad it can be repaired - it's good to be able to do FBF and bone rigging with the same software and even in the same scene.
