Re: 360º Smartbones using cycles

one approach: in the action have the SB go from 0 to 720 (linear) over, say, frames 1 to 121. put the turn animation in frames 1 to 61 (linear!), looped from 61 to 2 (so that the SB will be at frame 62 when the turn animation skips back to 2) start with the SB set at 360 so you can rotate it in asc...

360º Smartbones using cycles

I have a character rig with smartbones for 360º head turn, torso turn and pelvis turn. The thing is that those smartbones make those parts turn but when the bone reaches its full rotation, it doesn't go further, giving me problems to animate the character on those bone angles. As far as I know, ther...

Thank you for your answers. If you guys don't know how to do it is probably not possible ;)

Bone that moves another bone that moves a third bone

Yes, this is what happens when I'm in quarantine. I made a smartbone that moves another smartbone that moves a third bone. When I move the first one, the second one moves, but not the third. Is there a way to make this work, like some script or technique?

Erratic points issue

Hi! This issue happens when I have a group layer that is layer binded to a bone, and inside that group I have a vector layer with its points are animated by a smartbone. The consecuence is that, if I try move the points of the vector layer with any tool (like the magnet tool), the points move wrong ...

Re: animate shape visibility

Glad that helped! I wish the custom Styles list was keyframeable. This way, we could just create a fully transparent Style (maybe called 'Hide',) and select it from the list. Unfortunately, that's one of the features you can't keyframe and use in an SBA. Yes that would be cool, its what I tried fir...

Re: animate shape visibility

To keyframe a layer's Visibility, open the layer settings and disable the Visibility option. Once the Visibility channel appears on the timeline (you need at least one animation keyframe in the timeline, not just frame 0,) then you can simply double click on any frame in that channel and it will to...

Re: animate shape visibility

In that case you can only make them invisible at the same time anyway, so I'd do it with the layer tab settings. No, I mean different shapes but connected because they are using some common points, like a square right next to other square (that way moving those common points between them would anim...

Re: animate shape visibility

Much easier to animate layer visibility. If necessary, transfer shapes to additional layers. Yes but in this case I need them on the same layer because the shapes are conected, like triangles on a mesh. Keeping the style is not that necesary so I will give up using styles for this and will just mak...

animate shape visibility

Hi! I have one vector layer with a few shapes that are using a style. I want to make those shapes sometimes invisible and sometimes visible again, but I have a few problems: I need a reversible solution because I want to be able to make those shapes appear again if needed. I want the reference to ke...

Re: Bone Head

What I mean is that when layer binding is used on a group layer, it prevents you from binding any of the child layers and groups to other bones in that bone layer. For example, if I Layer bind the Head group to a Head bone, then I won't be able to bind the eyes layer to separate eye bones in that s...

Re: Bone Head

however I avoid using Layer binding directly on the head group because that prevents me from using bones inside the group (like for the eyes, etc.) I'm not sure if I understood that. When you say "bones inside the group" do you mean bones that are in your main character bone layer but are being use...

Re: Prevent a layer from being moved by the group it's in

Ah, I didn't get the setup right. So you have a bone rig, inside is a mouth group, inside this mouth group is the lollipop layer. You want the lollipop remain in place when the mouth group/its bone gets moved. Create the root bone I mentioned in the same bone rig that controls the mouth group. (Usu...

Re: Prevent a layer from being moved by the group it's in

Usually I create one separate root bone for this purpose to which I layer bind that item. Additionally I could set this bone's restraints to 0 so it can't be moved accidentially. I'm not sure if I understand. I tried that but didn't prevent the lollipop from being moved when I moved (with the trans...

Prevent a layer from being moved by the group it's in

Sometimes I feel like my life would be easier if I could just prevent a layer from being moved by its parents (or the bone they are vinculated to). This happens when I need to put one drawing (for example: a lollipop) inside one group layer (for example: the mouth group) for masking purposes (the li...
