Yes, I have just been rendering the portion that I need.

Anyway, what I was hoping was that there would be something like the "split" capability that exists in most video editors that makes it easy to delete stuff I no longer need for the current clip. Guess that doesn't exist.

Delete a portion of an animation?

Let's assume I have an animation that is 1000 frames in length. Is there an easyway to delete only the first 500 frames?

Link Scale Changes Between Bone Layers and Switch Layer

Seems to me that if I change the scale of a character in a bones layer, whe that the change should automatically be made in the other layers. (I know that if I change the scale in the switch layer, it is transferred to the bones layers.) I just finished my first animation with ASP 8.0.1 and experien...

Better Multi-core CPU support

I had terrible times with ASP 8.0.1 crashing during renders until I unchecked the multi-threaded rendering option on the Export Animation window; after that, rendering worked reliably and slowly. BTW, the manual has no mention of this option that I could find. Seems odd that having too many resource...

Views: 329

I subsequently discovered that the actions that are available to a character are only those that exist when the character is created if the character is saved to the Library. So, I had to recreate the characters that needed access to the new actions that I had created. I don't know why actions and c...

Jonbo, thanks for the response. And, you were right! The easiest thing to do was to remake the characters since all I had to do was give the existing character without the artwork a new name and open it in ASP and then open the character with the artwork from the library and then drag the artwork fr...

OK, here are two screen clips that show the character and the companion action list window; maybe this will help explain my problem. The only difference between the characters is the lettering on the torso and that I saved the character with the lettering in the Library. I couldn't figure out how to...

Sorry to be so dense, which file(s) would you like to see? By the way, I made the characters in the character wizard, then edited them in ASP by adding printing to torso, etc, then saved the character to the Library hidden in the public documents folder. Then I select the character from the Library ...

New Actions Don't Show in Action Window

I have created several new actions and the files show up in the Actions Folder within the Character Wizard folder but do not show up in the Actions Window once ASP 8.0.1 is opened if I use a character from the library rather from the Character Wizard. All actions show up for a character selected fro...

Thanks Slowtiger. I have been doing the last two of your three suggestions to get things to match. If it is a long dat file, it is a real pain to have to select each keyframe (using shift key) and drag or copy/paste/delete. I have also used the Sequencer and dragged the dat file to the correct spot....

Only one .dat file per character per animation?

I can't seem to figure out how to insert different .dat files at different times for characters. Every time I insert the .dat file, it starts at the beginning frame of the animation, not where I also insert the companion audio file. And, if later in the animation the character speaks again and I ins...

I made all of the voice clips using the built-in recorder and I thought I imported them the same way. Could be I used a different app to tweak the audio than I did for other clips but can't remember now. Anyway, I finally just gave up and broke the animation into 4 pieces and exported and put the pi...

Not all actions available to all characters?

I created new characters by starting in the character wizard and adding heads, mouths, hands, etc. Then, I customized the clothing in ASP8.0.1 like adding printing to shirts, etc. I then saved them to an anme file and then loaded them into the library folder. Why is it that these modified characters...

Yes, I was starting render at frame 1. The first audio for this character however did not happen until frame 1030 and that is where the sequencer shows the clip beginning...which seems right to me.

One Character Voice does not export

I have a 90+ second animation with 4 characters, all of whom speak, and some background audio. For some reason, when I export the animation to a .mov file, one of the character's voice does not export. The lips move but no sound. The sound for this character works just fine if I run the animation in...
