I'm absolutely desperate for the ability to snap bezier handles to 90 degrees in the motion graph. It's something I use constantly while animating in AE/C4D.

Can we have an Anti-Pop feature in the bone rigging?

Yes, this looks very useful. I wonder, whether something like this could be achieved with smart bones.

Sorry if this talk earlier.

Color correction tools will be very usefull.
Because most of us making motion graphics works using Moho. At least me. :)
I'm sharing some of my MO works done with Moho.
I'm using alot of images and image sequences.
So i really need a color correction tool for some color tweaks.

Thanks in advance.

Add the shift+right click zoom function to the timeline. I love this feature and it would be incredibly useful for navigating the timeline.

Here are my Top 6 Feature Requests for Moho :-)

- Basic Color-Correction-Filters (Hue/Saturation/Curve) - for example as Effects in the Style-Panel

- A Script to create simple Wind-Distortion-Effects (like the "Wave Warp"-Effect in Aftereffects) that automates this process:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erEHCn0x7Rs
(With Parameters like Skale, Distortion-Amount and Speed)

- A "Random Seed" Setting for the "Noisy"-Keyframe-Setting, so i can generate random movement (like with the wiggle-expression in AE) - and not all Objects, that have the "Noisy"-Keyframe applied move in the same way.

- A Velocity-Graph in the Timeline, that lets me manipulate acceleration independently from the motion-path

- A Spline-IK-Bone (as substitute for the Sketch-Bone-Feature) that lets me Deform limbs along a spline (like the Curve-Deformer in Harmony). Controlling the Limb with splines seems much more precise then re-drawing the Shape with the Sketch-Bone-Feature.

- Being able to create multiple smooth joints per layer

let me know what you think about those :-)

yes! and it's was logged through official channels as an enhancement request (mantis 39820) back in October 2018 when you first asked for it! ;-)

There's a wavy script already and some great wave scripts by dkwroot have a look for them.
What about the motion 'graph'? Do you use that?

1. A way to easily create functional dotted lines. Using high levels of brush spacing works in certain situations, but when the path is made of straight lines (a zigzag for instance), the dot sticks out past the path. Which is of course unusable. In addition to that, a way to offset the dotted line would be incredibly helpful.

2. We also need a more sophisticated way to parent layers to each other. For instance, parenting a layer to another layer's X-axis only.

3. A hotkey to rename layers would help speed up workflow on a big project.

4. Add buttons to set in/out points on the timeline. I like alt click & alt right click but it's actually a really weird way of handling in/out points.

5. Ability to set an end-point for particles.

Well I would love to see a good upgrade to using the Motion Graph...The ability to snap bezier keyframe handles to a perfect angle (even when using bezier curves on drawing shapes)
as well as general snapping when making shapes or transforming points with smart guides
Alignment within an individual layer would make life much easier
Better Brush Pack

^A thousand times this. Getting quality motion is extremely cumbersome without it. Even when the curves look as though they are angled perfectly, you'll watch the animation, realize it sucks, and then zoom in to find that the handles are nowhere near the angles they appeared to be.

I mostly do all job with Moho except text animations. Because of that I have to use After Effects. I wish we'll have tools in Moho to create text animations like Mister Horse's plugin.

I think most of the people need to make text animations but Moho isn't the best software for this job.

dkrwoot has done some pretty good scripts for exactly that stuff. Have a sniff around for them.

Here's one:

http://www.lostmarble.com/forum/viewtop ... it=dkwroot

Over the years, DKW Root has done a lot of cool stuff for Moho. I'm not sure all of it still works in the latest version of Moho but many are definitely worth trying out. Just go the scripts area and browse around for his threads.

The one I still use regularly is Mirror Points and Swap Sides. Not always perfect results but when it works, it saves me a ton of time. You can find it in that same discussion.
