Re: Remember the Path - during export configuration settings save

Yes, I've been saying this for many years now. The output path in Moho Exporter needs to be a project setting. The current 'recent path' list is dumb because it requires the user to keep selecting the same path over and over again, is too subject to user error and leads to files being rendered to an...

Re: Moho 12 on macOS Catalina

I'm new to Moho and animation...is the upgrade from Moho 12 Pro to Moho 13 Pro worth the money for most of you? Hi Gregg, I can't answer the Mac part of your post but I can offer some info that may help with your Moho 12 to Moho 13 upgrade decision. The latest version of Moho 12 Pro has been a soli...

Re: D.R. Greenlaw Demo Reel, 2019 Edition

In revisiting the work we did on Boss Baby over a year ago, it occurred to me I haven't yet mentioned Victor Paredes' contributions to the show. Victor built some advanced rigs for this show, including an amazing quetzalcoatl and the scariest Jack-in-the-box. He created fun animations for the show t...

Re: Masking trouble

Sometime I'll just duplicate the background layer on top of the character and mask that. I guess that's essentially what SlowTiger has recommended. If you don't want to duplicate the background, applying a mask like what he's drawn in red works directly on the character works well too. Other times, ...

Re: How to speed up my character rig?

Moho has generally been a very fast program for me but I've found it can slow down when I have a lot of large bitmap images I'm deforming with bones and meshwarp. Here are some tips for dealing with that. To helps reduce the CPU and memory usage, I like to use vector layers for the shapes and outlin...

Re: D.R. Greenlaw Demo Reel, 2019 Edition

Which reminds me... It surprising how much you can fake convincing 3D effects in Moho. For example, in the black & white car chase sequence, you might think there's a lot of 3D in it but the only 3D element is the car in the single shot when it turns around the corner. The truck, which looks 3D, is ...

Re: D.R. Greenlaw Demo Reel, 2019 Edition

I really like the felt animation. Love to know how you got the light shading on the blue felt character when he turns from side to side? That was an experiment I did way, way back during development. I created 'shading' layers for the character's body parts. The fuzzy texture is actually very flat ...

If I have a curved curve, is it possible to somehow get another curve equal to the size of my curved curve?
Maybe there is such a script ?
Can you illustrate what you mean? It's a bit unclear what you're asking for.

Re: Parent / unparent in place?

I agree with what Slow Tiger wrote: Don't scale your character layers. It's better to make all your art the proper scale to begin with and leaving the layers at 100% is the way to maintain that. If you're using vectors, scale the shapes instead. If you're using image layers, place them in groups, sc...

Re: D.R. Greenlaw Demo Reel, 2019 Edition

Looks Great Denis, I really like the Trolls fabric look. Thanks! The scrapbook elements were a lot of fun to make. The animation is mostly AE work with a bits of Moho and LightWave animations worked in for the more complicated stuff. Towards the end of the reel is an early Trolls 'Big Guy' test mad...

Re: Character Wizard

Sure. Glad to help. :) The way to think about a Reference layer is that it's basically a Duplicate that has all of the animation channels linked to the original layer's channels. As the channels get unlinked (because you keyframed them in the Reference layer,) the Reference layer becomes more like a...

Re: Character Wizard

What is the placement of the reference layer?Above or Below the Main character folder or, above or below the view layer if the view layer which one? I read the manual and the tutorials for reference layers but they don't mention this usage. Layer order shouldn't matter. As a matter of fact, the lay...
