Is using masked layers in a switch layer possible??

O.K. I'm made some eye and and mouth independent of of my characters by using two layers. One layer is the masking layer, the outline of the mouth and eyes and the other layer is the pupils, teeth and tongue. This works really, really well for me because I can swap character faces and use the same a...

Re: Is it possible to move a layer...?

Is it possible to somehow move a layer that at the beginning of the animation was set at the bottom to then move it up to the top half way through an animation? It's needed for a walk by and then to turn around and walk round something but I have no idea how I can move layers half way through an an...

Kinda off subject, on subject

The importing trace image is defiantly the way to as far as tracing in AS. It gets you use to the tools and just makes for really clean image to work with. I did want to just say on a side note that I've come across some great bitmap to vector tracing software that you guys might want to check out. ...

Moving shapes

One of the best ways I've found for moving shapes around is to selecthem (The selection points tool/Shortcut g button) when you first create them and then name and create a group for them at the top. This way no matter how many things you pile on top of one another you can always go to select group ...

Stop the floating! Auto keyframe duplication option.

I think anyone who has used AS has run into the problem of floating movements. Say you key frame a arm moving from frame 1 to and needs to be in an up position in frame 20 but you want the movement to only take 4 frames you have to place another key frame at 16 to make it look correct. It would be n...

PLEASE! Scroll through switch layers/Auto bone bind to shape

One thing I find extremely time consuming is lip syncing. The auto lip sync is o.k. but I like using my own mouth switch layers when animating so they interpolate and look accurate and really match up with the words being spoken. The problem is that it's pretty time consuming. I have to scrub throug...

Game title animation WIP

I'm in the process of *trying* to make a simple iphone game. It's just going to be a breakout type of game but I think by making custom animations for characters and cutscenes with AS it will be far more appealing. I'll keep posting progress here on the forum if people are interested. It looks a lit...

Rigging a head model/using blends

What's up AS forum! I made a tutorial awhile ago on how I rig a character for head movements and facial expressions. The tutorials were made right after I figured out how to use the technique. I found it difficult to find tutorials on doing this so once I *sort of* figured out how to do it I made th...

Hello AS forum! I'm having a really hard time figuring out what settings to use to create an object that spins AND has gravity effecting it. I think it can be done because I heyvern had a post based on this type of thing. http://www.lostmarble.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16632 Or at least I think that...

Vern! So awesome! But now my brain hurts...

Heyvern! The new physics in AS is unbelievable! I'm not much of a techy but I'm really wanting to learn the technical aspects of the program. This video gave me an idea on making a self propelled vehicle. I want to make a wheel by drawing a circle, add a curve profile to make treads and then use a m...

Thanks for the welcome!

Thanks for the welcome DK and negroclarito! DK, I took the audio clip directly from a youtube clip but I did do all the other stuff. I created the character model and I'm really proud of the lip syncing and the costume change. Mainly because I created switch layers for all of the clothes. Even thoug...

I've only been using AS since March but I'm convinced, it's THE best animation software out. Flash can go suck a lemon! :)

Distribute objects 2 layers/Auto select option/game creation

What's up AS community! I've been playing with anime studio for quite a few months and I honestly think it's the best vector based animation software out. I do have some suggestions though, as many of you do, to make it comparable to none. One is to have a function that distributes multiple objects ...
