Re: Auto trace in Moho Pro 13

If you need to auto trace for Moho 13, here's a free online solution: https://www.autotracer.org/ I tried it out with a random image from the web and imported the result to Moho. The render on the right side is the raw, unedited auto traced image. Online Auto Trace Example Considering this isn't an ...

Re: Auto trace in Moho Pro 13

Different thing. Select Tracing Image allows you to trace vector art from and image manually. Auto-Trace allowed you to generate vector art from a bitmap image automatically. I've never been sure what the value of importing a Tracing Image is over importing to a normal Image Layer for tracing. Traci...

Re: Folder Opacity

Another option is to do all your effects in a compositing program. I break out my key elements from Moho (i.e., Bg, Mg, Fg, Char, holdout mattes, etc.,) using Layer Comps and assemble the scene in a composting program. The programs I use can all display the opacity and other effects interactively. I...

Re: Folder Opacity

Yeah, I think that's another OpenGL limitation in Moho. If it's not affecting my ability to animate the scene, I just ignore it. But when it's really important to be able to see the transition while animating in the workspace, you can do the following: Use Layer Comps to separate the group from the ...

Re: character test - spinning 360' (File)

It's a random thing that happens in this forum. I find my own posted videos will sometimes disappear and then reappear later.

To cover myself when this happens, I like to include a clickable text link beneath the embedded video.

Edit: well, there you go...now I see your embedded videos. :D

Re: Cleared animation from Document but didn't work

Yes, this is normal behavior: The Clear commands affect only the Mainline animation. The animation contained inside Actions should be considered part of the 'rigging'. If the Clear commands affected this, it would be break the rigs, which normally isn't what you want to happen. If you wish to get ri...

I don't see the embedded videos above either but here are the YouTube links I could find in the html for this page:

Re: Toilet Flush?

Here it is: https://www.lostmarble.com/forum/viewto ... pt#p188761

I just scrubbed through the videos. I don't think I saw anything looking quite like a vortex but maybe this will work?

I definitely want to try this tool out myself anyway. :)

Re: Toilet Flush?

Funny, I had just tried a single bill by animating offsets and rotation...and then I saw SlowTiger beat me to it. :) The spiraling arc motion for the single bill looks very nice but I think it would take a lot of replication to fill the vortex effect. But I recall somebody created a cool 'motion gra...

Re: Toilet Flush?

I took a few minutes to try this with Moho's Particle Layer. It's pretty tricky to do this with Moho's emitter since there are so few settings. I basically tried spinning the emitter, hoping the particles would drift away in a vortex pattern but it's not quite doing what I thought. (It's much easier...

Re: Toilet Flush?

Just an idea off the top of my head, haven't actually tried this myself: Render your vortex animation with the bills flowing outward and render that. Then disable the emitter and import the sequence. Now set the sequence to play backwards. The result should look like money being sucked down a hole. ...

Re: symethrical vector face with actions

When you create a second action for a Smart Bone, you'll notice that the name of the second action is appended with a '2'. This is your action for turning it the opposite direction. The animation you link to this second direction can be anything. In your case, you would create a 'mirror' of the anim...

Re: commandline rendering layercomp -All not working,overwrites images

I'm guessing the programmers at my workplace have done something 'under the hood' like what Wes described, but I really don't know anything about this. Sorry, wish I could be more help. :(

I hope you get it working at your studio.

Re: commandline rendering layercomp -All not working,overwrites images

Not being a programmer, I can't be much help but I can confirm that it should work. The programmers at my workplace were able to get Moho integrated in our render controller using the command lines, and when I submit a project to our render farm using a custom button in Moho, I have the option to br...
