Loop Switch

Friday, October 10th, 2008

Anime Studio Pro script
Download Loop Switch script ver.1.2.

Installation: Just put it in your scripts/menu/other folder.

Usage: Select a Switch layer and run the script.
The switches in the layer will then be layed out in the timeline following their layer order.
The parameters you can set is start and end frame in the range, interval between the keyframes,
and you can also select to lay out the keyframes in reverse, starting with the last switch, going downards in the list.
If the switches reaches the last one before the range has reached it’s end they will start over from the beginning.
Updated, you can now also set to use every # image in the sequence. Setting it to 3 for instance would use images 1,4,7,10 etc.

Set & Get Frame Bookmark

Wednesday, October 1st, 2008

Anime Studio Pro Script.
Download Set & Get Frame Bookmark script, ver.0.1.

First press the key for setting the current frame as bookmarked and then on any other frame press the key for getting the bookmark to be transfered to that first frame.

Installation: Download and unzip in your >scripts>tool folder.

Then open _tool_list.txt located in the tool folder.
I suggest installing this script either into the “Other” section of the tool-palette or adding a new group called Navigation. To do this either add the following line to the end of the file _tool_list.txt;

button DR_set_framebookmark J
button DR_get_framebookmark K

or add the following lines;

group Navigation
color 204 220 232 255
button DR_set_framebookmark J
button DR_get_framebookmark K

(J and ”’k is the hotkeys, you can set this to whatever key you want, J, K, O and Y is by default not mapped to any tool).
Save _tool_list.txt and refresh Moho (ctrl+F5).

Note; Currently the framenumber in the little square at top left of the Timeline panel doesn’t update when you transfer to the bookmarked frame but as soon as you step or scrub the timeline it’s back to normal.
My plan for these tools is to merge them into one and make it possible to have multiple bookmarks stored.

Select Active Child

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Anime Studio Pro script-
Download the Set Parent Switch Value to Current Layer ver.1.1

By pressing this button or it’s hotkey you set a switch-keyframe corresponding to the current layer in the current layers parent switch layer.
It’s a bit faster than browsing the switches and when you’ve found what you’re looking for, remembering the name of that layer, go to the parent and select that layer name from the drop-down list. Now just press the button and you automatically has the switch keyframe set to the layer you want.

Installation: Download and unzip in your >scripts>tool folder.

Select Parent Layer

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

Anime Studio Script
Download Select Parent Layer script ver.1.0

This tool works as a button in the toolbox, when you click it (or even better assign a hotkey for it) the selected layer in the Layers box changes to the parent of the layer. Very useful if you work a lot with nested skeletons and switch layers.

Installation: Download and unzip in your >scripts>tool folder.

Then open _tool_list.txt located in the tool folder.
If there are no “Other” group at the bottom of the list add one by inserting the lines;
group Other
color 204 220 232 255
Under those lines add;
button DR_select_parent_layer J
(J is the hotkey, you can set this to whatever key you want, J, K, O and Y is by default not mapped to any tool).
Save _tool_list.txt and refresh Moho (ctrl+F5).

List Source Image

Thursday, February 9th, 2006

Anime Studio script.
Download List Source Image ver. 1.0.

I find it odd that you from a standard Anime Studio Pro can’t see which image that is actually used in an image layer. There’s where this script comes in; just select an image layer and run the script to find out which source image the layer has.

To install just drop it in your ../AnimeStudioPro/scripts/menu/Image -folder.

Random Switch

Monday, February 6th, 2006

Anime Studio Pro script
Download Random Switch script ver.1.0.

Installation: Just put it in your scripts/menu/other folder.

Usage: Select a Switch layer and run the script.
The switches in the layer will be layed out in the timeline randomly.
The parameters you can set is the range to add keyframes in, the interval between keyframes and whether the first frame in the range always should be keyed.

Uniform Layer Scale

Friday, September 30th, 2005

Anime Studio Pro script
Download Uniform Layer Scale ver.1.0.

Uniform Layer Scale works just like the original Layer Scale tool, with the addition of a tick-box that let you scale one axis numerical and have the others scale automatic to preserve the proportions of the layer.

To install, just put the files in the scripts/tool folder. If you want to replace the old scale layer tool, open _tool_list.txt and change “lm_scale_layer” to “DR_uni_scale_layer”, else it will be put in the “Other” group in the Toolbar.

(AS5 only. Conflicts with AS6 scale layer tool. Will update later.)
