    hey!

    What i think really is missing in visionaire are making small changes to the image.

    For example have the animation-mirror-possibility not only with characters, but all images. And maybe a crop or resize-option. (resize would be really nice also)

    bye

    animation mirrors are all good & well but I discourage using them if you plan on using Lua script in your game. For instance I had issues with mirrored animations in a script to do with playing specific animations based on character alignment. I could not make it play the mirrored animations with the startAnimation function. I also had issues with mirrored animations for a dynamic footstep/character sounds script for use with the upcoming release of VS; I haven't shared the script on here yet because it won't work in 3.7.1. the footstep sounds were not triggered on mirrored animations nor was the dynamic volume/balance script because mirrored animations don't allow you to add custom actions to each frame - my opinion, mind razz

    You can't resize images in VS but you can scale (in proportion) active animations via the VAnimationSize data structure entry.
    getObject("ActiveAnimations[animation name]"):setValue(VAnimationSize, 100)

    thx for the snippet.

    ok, maybe not for animations, but what about stills? for example my object-picture is not a animation, so no problem, no? Also my snoop-animation is just a single picture. i have to implement it as an animation, but still its only one picture.

    we can only reposition & scale animations with the editor/lua.

    just create an animation & set loop to infinite with a large pause/delay value.

    haha I never know what section they are in... the directory structure / tree link whatsit at the top just says: forum overview > minor image tools. I tend to access posts from the recent post box on the portal page or via the default forum page list.

    maybe you should request that Thomas & Calli add a proper tree link structure system to this forum? wink
