Resizing fat arrows

Thanks, funksmaname

I'll check out those meshinstance scripts. I can do without the point motions. Just looking at them a bit shows they will be real timesavers.

I'll be careful to mock something up before I propagate it everywhere.

Reference object for scale

I built a lot of little fat arrows and used them in many layers. Turns out the they all are looking too fat and distract from the actual body of the object I'm trying build. I'd like to know: • Is there a way to select objects and scale them all together? with an anchor point centered in each one. (...

Grid Lock no scale , sub ticks, dynamic guides

Absolutely. One grid to find them them, one grid to bring them all and in the layers bind them. It's nuts to copy an object from one layer to another and have it distorted because it's points snap to different positions. And we need something like press Opt and then you get snaps at 1/5 the the grid...

Exported to .mov in Quicktime Audio Crackles

Hi Gcharb, Thanks for the tips. I found Animtaion > Audio Level and I think that helped some when I turned it down. I'm just going to assume it's overdriven here. I used a bunch of .wave files. Next time I"m going to find the track I want to be the loudest and then reduce tracks from there. It would...

Exported to .mov in Quicktime Audio Crackles

Hi, I exported a multi track audio animation to Quicktime .mov and when it plays in Quicktime the sound track crackles. I tried changing each audio level to .8 in each of the tracks. Maybe it did a little good but the crackles were still there. Sounds like the digital mix is overdriving. Any suggest...

Arbitrary polygon ? Straight line segment?

No doubt a newbie blind spot but

How do you draw a single line segment?
How do you draw an arbitrary polygon with straight sides?
or a quarter circle?
How's about a Pac Man shape?

Thanks for the follow path idea

Hi Distinct, I'm good now. My initial problem was that I didn't realize the importance of remaing at T0 most all the time. I had had invisible sections where the particles were wild but I didn't see them until I changed the key frames. It's newbie stuff and I'm getting much better now. Also I don't ...

Post subject: Copy Particle Layers.

Hi slow tiger. Dup / move layer is helping me. It's behaving better but it's still whacky in my hands or something about rendering and in Anime 7. No need to try and fix what I'm about to describe since I'm ugrading to 8 later today. Seems like after a T0 shift the partcles remeber the previous stat...

Copy Particle Layers.

Hi, I have a particle layer with arrows moving down to indicate flow in a pipe. The pipe has a valve and when the valve closes the arrows dis/re-appear at various times during a looping animation. This is working fine in 2 particle layers that I created from scratch. The dis/re-appear occurs differe...

No problem. Simply my inexperience and Gremlins

Hi, Thanks for your answers. What my problem was is that you can only add layers at Time Point 0. So not having the eye I didn' notice that the mysterious add layer gray out only occured when the time marker wasn't at zero. Newbie disorientation. I believe the bouncing Fred tutorial mentioned the sp...

No Groups ? Wrongly bought Digital not Physical

I'm trying to follow this tutorial -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtzTulTstS8 -- I can't find out how to group layers. I just bought Anime Studio Pro 7 and it's looking like there are 2 different products Digital and Physical. This is not at all clear in the About message nor is it clear on the W...

Mac App Keyboard Short cuts works great!

Been using the Mac for 8 years and never knew about the app specific short cuts. Never scrolled all the way to the bottom of the key commands list. After getting the spelling right "Save As..." without a space before the ellipsis, the Shift Cmd A overrode the my strings Cmd-@ and now I have my intui...

Copy frame 1 sounds like what I was missing. I'll check it out when I have time. Need to quit working now. Sure would be nice if they has a copy/paste attributes like Final Cut Pro where the "Paste Attributes" Dialog lets you choose which parameters to apply in the paste. And if they let you cmd-cli...

Anime Studio.5.5.strings > 3005 "Save As...@"

Beautiful! Searching for @" showed it wasn't used. I changed the line for Save As and then I opened SA again. and there it was cmd-@ for save as. Also it looks like you can use the Shift key as a modifier. Although there's no syntax for say. Shift-cmd-option modifier. Thank you very much! Details: p...

Save As ... Nice if keyed as Shift-Cmd-S

Question:
Is there a way to add Shift-Cmd-S as keys for the File>Save As ... menu item?

Hope:
I just read about using -- _tool_list.txt -- to add/modify Tool key commands. Is there a way to add keys to the Top Bar menu items?
