Zoom in the timeline

Post by Billybeanbag » Tue Aug 16, 2016 11:31 pm

Hi Everyone

I just download Moho 12. Is it possible to zoom the timeline in as far in ASP 11?
In ASP 11 you can zoom the timeline to to show frames 0 -21 whereas in Moho 12 I cannot zoom in past 0-90.

I am running the Mac version.

cheers

IMO the AS11 zoom-in was largely useless. It's pointless to spread the keys out like that when there's nothing actually between them. But in Moho12 the zoom-in also increases the size of the keys, so it actually helps people see them. At max zoom, the keys are ridiculously large. Would you need them bigger?

Yeah, it's surprising how many little things like that got improved.

Thanks for the reply. I use Maya at work and I am used to be able to zoom in a lot more in the Maya graph editor than you can in Moho 12. This is really useful when editing curves accurately and finessing movement.

The improvements are significant over asp 11. I was just checking I wasn't missing something in not being able to zoom further. Cheers.

Oh, you're talking about the motion graph. I can see why you might want more zoom there, although from my tests I can't say more zoom really helps the curve representation.
