@ratscloset Thanks for replying. I finally got a response from support, saying just what you’d said, that because I’d sent in a file it had to be reviewed by the lab. They hadn’t written for days, and I’d written post after feeling like no one was listening.
I haven’t exported the file yet, as I wanted to try to sort out the issue beforehand. The “stickiness” —in which the program appears to be loading, only happens on the first play; after that, the animation runs according to what I put in. I don’t know if image size is causing it to “load” but if so, why wouldn’t it happen in subsequent plays?
I have also asked to be told how to end the video. It feels so basic, but I can’t find where it says how to end it. I’ve toggled the visibility, but there is dead space at the end, because I’m missing how to give the final cut command. I also have an audio file that i”m not sure how to end, although if I can figure out the “final cut” tool it would probably take care of the audio, as well.
This is such a cool program, and I really hope I can get the book trailer to work, because when it does, it’s amazing. Any insight you can give me would be very appreciated!!!
Well, Rob, MotionArtist isn't 3D animation software, so there's no 'key challenges' in rigging or MoCap etc. I've seen this same post on other animation forums, so I'm guessing that, while not spam exactly, this is just an 'infomercial' for your company. I'm not sure what the moderation policy is in this forum, but I'd be surprised if you got any business here anyway.
It's a big question. There's plenty of 2D animation software out there, all filling slightly different niches. You may need to be more specific -- how much you want to pay, if anything; whether you want 2D software that operates in a kind of 3D environment, Like Moho or Toon Boom Harmony, and so on...
Hi janocli thanks for your quick responce
I have watched this tutorial a number of times. He shows HTML5 script and script that he has written for this piece.
In the Reference Manual Chapter 11 HTML5 EXPORT and INTERACTIVITY starting at page 34.... Am I right in thinking that the code is already inbeded in the program and that we don't need to learn how to write HTML5 code, because it's already in there. So we just have to create the tabs i.e. Go to Page 4 , or go to Page 8 and drop them in at the appropriate place in the time line ? That implies a vertical time line right as opposed to your excellent horizontal " Beware of the Black Cat " tutorial. Both tutorials are great, but I am the person who wrote that I found the focus a bit soft in the comments box below " The Rise of Motion Artist tutorial ( I was trying to read the HTML5 script ). Exciting stuff !
@shiro_hotaru If you have set up Auto Camera, it may be a Project Settings feature, "Automatic Camera Tilt", which you will need to set to zero by the sound of things...
Here's a tutorial that explains things:
