Re: Does Moho Pro work with iPad Pro?

I doubt you'll find anything at Moho's level on a mobile platform. Not yet, anyway. Closest I've seen for iPad is Animation Pro: http://www.hotjamdonut.com.au/AnimationPro/AnimationPro.html Note: I haven't actually tried it so I don't know if it is any good, but the feature list looks moderately pro...

Re: Affinity sale

Disclaimer: While I have used Adobe products (available to me at work), my experience with them is limited. I've never had to do significant amounts of image editing. I've played with my copy of Affinity Photo but not used it in depth, and I actually use Affinity Designer. The short version: Affinit...

Re: *NEW* Beautify Moho file

On Python 2.7 (for Windows) adding the executable to the path was an option, but it was one of those old icons-in-a-tree-structure with a drop-down and "will be installed on local hard drive", and not the default. In Python 3.x it's a more obvious checkbox, but unlike the rest of the Python install ...

Re: Import Illustrator Vectors? Raster? Re-Draw in Moho?

XQuartz is only an X11 window manager for Inkscape, you don't open or import your SVG using XQuartz, you still use Inkscape for that.

Once XQuartz is installed and appropriately configured, you should be able to ignore it and use Inkscape normally.

Re: Render problem image files

Is your Mac render output folder being backed up by macOS's Time Machine or similar, or synced to an online service such as iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive? This type of sync system can interfere with output options in a variety of software (I suspect a difference between either atomic/non-a...

Re: color gradients animation: keep up length and velocity

Probably a silly question, but why not use a static gradient and a rotating circle?

Re: Vegas Movie Studio 14

Has anybody here used OpenShot for short productions? Opinions? Briefly tried a previous version (2.3.4) for somebody else, with some fairly trivial stuff - 1080p, a few seconds each of a frame sequence and a few short clips, some audio (MP3 and WAV), nothing strenuous. Didn't find any problems at ...

Re: New: Saola animate

Like Hippani Animator , this looks good for interactive web pages/games/presentations (but very limited for character animation). From the screenshots I can see a nice basic set of vector shapes, but I don't see a vector Pen tool - can you create user-drawn shapes easily, or would you use SVG import?

Re: MediBang Paint - interesting free comic drawing software

MediaBang Paint looks interesting, in particular on mobile platforms. I tried it on my Android tablet, and it works well. But I love painting in Krita, and MB Paint is a bit too shallow for my taste, and I really missed all the options and brush sets I have available in Krita. That said, Krita is m...

Re: Reference layers dont work in Moho 12

Sorry to steal your thunder, Wes, I'm posting this so I will remember it myself - thank you for hinting at the possibility! It helped me understand referencing more. As Wes (synthsin75) implies, if you use the Transform Points tool to move the shape on the reference layer aside, that breaks the refe...

Re: MediBang Paint - interesting free comic drawing software

Do you use MediBang and Alpaca with Moho? If so, please tell us about it. Not yet, past a few basic tests, but I intend to do more. From my brief testing, Moho imports FireAlpaca layered PSDs without any problems. Personally, I've also found Clip Studio Paint too feature-rich for some hobbyist cart...

Re: Help me troubleshoot, please

No great expertise myself, but something I've seen mentioned a few times in the forum: Edit menu, Preferences, General tab, untick Enable GPU - I know it seems counter-intuitive to take out hardware acceleration, but it often helps (the CPU often performs Moho functionality faster than the GPU).
