Re: Event Markers

That's a clever workaround! Thanks for sharing the tip

Re: Event Markers

That's a good idea about the Onion Skin markers. Thanks for the tip. BTW, while I do maintain an X-sheet or Dope-sheet for each shot, I'd still like to have this feature, specifically because ASP doesn't allow you edit keys on multiple layers at once--that disconnect really puts a hit on workflow ef...

Drag Zoom for Timeline

Drag Zoom in the animation window is nice. Could we get that for the Timeline too?

Thanks for listening. :)

Screen Marker - Useful (and Free) Windows Utility

I'm finding Screen Marker to be useful for visually marking reference points on the screen. In the past, I mainly used this tool for marking key positions, paths, arcs etc., in 3D animation and visual FX, and now I'm finding it handy in ASP too. Think of it as an alternative to using a grease pencil...

Event Markers

In Sony Vegas Pro, you can put marks on the timeline and label them. This is handy for attaching a brief note about what's occurring or needs to occur at that particular point in time. Would it be possible to see a similar feature added to ASP in a future release? Since we can't edit keys in multipl...

Re: Changing the 'origin' point for Stroke Exposure

Oh, this wasn't for tapering a line, rather it was literally for growing and contracting an 'underarm' line that crosses over the character's chest as the character tumbled over an object. This method was much easier in this situation because it didn't require creating additional points or lines tha...

Re: Changing the 'origin' point for Stroke Exposure

Oh, wait...for setting a new origin anywhere along the path, I'm finding that the solution is much easier than described above. All you need to do is delete the edge next to whichever point you want to become the new origin for the Stroke Exposure tool. THEN you draw from the open point next to your...

Re: Changing the 'origin' point for Stroke Exposure

Ah! I figured out how to do this. First I deleted an edge to one side of the origin and then I re-connected the two open points by drawing a new edge, only I need to be sure to close the shape at the point where I want the new origin to be (in other words, start the line at the original origin and f...

Re: Changing the 'origin' point for Stroke Exposure

It would be cool if I could enter a negative value in the start or end field--that would certainly solve my current problem. Actually, I've wished I was able to enter negative values in a few other areas of ASP since I started using it. Hope we can have this in a future release.

Changing the 'origin' point for Stroke Exposure

I have a character whose arm needs to have the exposed 'underarm' line animated in one scene but, unfortunately, I need the Stroke Exposure to begin from a different point than where it is currently occurring. Is it possible to change the Stroke Exposure 'origin' point after a shape has been drawn o...

Re: Autoplay Off?

Oh, yeah, I guess that is better since it means I can continue working while the scene renders in the BG. Thanks again for the tip! That fits into my workflow nicely. :)

Thanks Selgin. I haven't tried the batch render command yet but it sounds like it should do the trick.

Re: Grid Offset

I was comparing item placement of items and characters between two scene files and getting very confused by what I was seeing--then I realized that the grid scale can change between layers, which made it useless for such comparisons. Can we have the option to lock the grid size to be constant relati...

Autoplay Off?

Is there a way to disable 'autoplay' of a movie file after rendering. It seems like this feature should be an option but I can't find any way to switch it off. I really don't want the program to do this because I need to immediately load the file into my NLE but the 'autoplay' keeps disrupting my wo...
