Tobias created a new topic ' Text element, blank character and anchor point' in the forum. 3 years ago

Hi while playing around with the align behaviour I recognised while using blank characters that the anchor point isn't moving in comparison to normal characters. Any chance to solve that issue?

Hi Karsten,
Yes the picture should appear as well in DZ box in order that a user would see that there is a preloaded picture already that can be easily changed via x or just a new drag and drop. Wouldn’t confuse me at all. As such a drop down list wouldn’t work.

Well there will be even more OSC because want to mimik like youtu.be/ILDrGMI7dqY
OSC amount is used for scaling therefore I set the value.

Yes is season is starting and funny to watch games from 2—3 years ago.

What is a bit strange that you can include eg. gifs, png in Motion5 and assign these pictures as a kind of value for Dropzones. In fcxp these pictures are then used but don't show up in the Dropzone in the "inspector" which is a bit annoying .

Created DZ with assigned "pre-picture":

Display in fcpx: Picture is used in the background as it should but I would expect that the picture would be shown as well in the drop zone as in Motion 5.
Bug or Feature??

Thank you very much for your support. Works great without a need for duplication.

Thanks Guru,

okay will then just create two groups and work with opacity and include that in rigs.

Well checkboxes CAN be published but you can't assign them to rigs (at least my experience) which is a bit strange, at least for me. Will raise a feedback report to Apple.

Anyhow thanks for your feedback and problem solved.

Tobias created a new topic ' Include "link" behaviour in a rig ?' in the forum. 3 years ago

Hi,

is there a way to combine a link behaviour to a rig element ?

I can publish a link parameter so that user can turn it on or off but would prefer to include that in a rig with other elements. Any suggestions how to do that ?

Thanks
Tobias

1453 clips ... Happy I/O and Favorite selection process and don't forget to keyword ;-)

I guess this means on your machine USB 2.0 and do wonder how you deal with your storage. But saw your other post with a 500GB SDD and " using it here as 'working horses', for long term storage I shovel data to some cheap 2.5" spinner… "
Currently I am using 2-3 WD my Book 4-6TB and sync folder pro for sync process for FCPX libs and lightroom pictures(www.greenworldsoft.com/index.php)

So far this works fine but every time I do run out of storage I am thinking about a different solution (not investing $$$). Working on 4K and single clips in the timeline works fine but when it comes to multicam clip and editing I get "warning" messages and playback is less fluent. iMac from 2015, 16GB, ... so do wonder whether a SSD would make more sense and then store the final project then on a HDD drive... or how do you manage multicam editing or is this more a CPU issue...

Ah just see that in some text effects from eg LenoFX (Basic lower thirds) freebie while moving the cursor over the preview the landscape appears as well instead of the small or large preview .
Well I think this is due to the animation in text templates. Strange is then that in other ones this doesn't happen.

simple maybe if you want to change 1 or 2 but lets say a user wants to change 20-30 then you can understand my comment.
My changes do work with effects templates but currently not with title. Made the changes with the preview App. (size and res)

youtu.be/7vcbaygQrRM

as you can see for a bunch of 1 sec the changed one is displayed (just t took the one from the effect) but then the landscape appears again.

thanks for your comments. a very very handy way (Apple come on thats a joke, having to create a screenshot and then convert that 2 times arrrr)

I assume the larger one is for the case when the mouse moves over. Smaller one works but when I move the mouse over again the old landscape appears again. Took over the setting from

Hi,
was searching the forum and google but unfortunately didn't found the answer. When you create own templates and include them in fcpx my templates have as a preview a landscape picture plus preview of the title or effect. I am wondering how I can change the landscape picture to either black, dark grey or an own selected picture as this is done by other templates. Any idea how to achieve that. Thanks
Changing the background color under M5.4 template -> project -> settings doesn't work in my case.

Tobias replied to the topic 'Width of a box and align width' in the forum. 3 years ago

Thanks again Karsten,

for looking into that but I had more complex ones and 2-3 subgroups should be manageable by M5.4. Well just created it from the scratch 2 Text elements and 4-5 subgroups works all fine.

No idea but you concept to create a clone solves the issue but doesn't lead to lean development ;)) Anyhow Tx again MasterMind

Tobias replied to the topic 'Width of a box and align width' in the forum. 3 years ago

Hi Karsten,

thanks. I tried that one as well what is strange that the width starts with 0% and then gets fit to width of the text size. See pictures I don't find anywhere a keyframe that I could have set ...

Tobias created a new topic ' Width of a box and align width' in the forum. 3 years ago

Hi,
a basic question doesn't work the align function for groups ?
I have to text elements text1 and text2 with different text width and put them into one group (both players). In order to fit the size of a box to the max width I thought that I could use the align function in order to determine the width of that group. But doesn't work. Any idea?

Tobias replied to the topic 'Counter' in the forum. 3 years ago

Hi,
for my soccer videos I am using the TC of the clip and apply a re-timing so that the clock starts with the kick-off.
See
www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fc4sOVJasg0

Luckily the games only last 40min so no issue with the hour. Sometimes I apply as well a display like "4. min" or "21. min" where I then just apply a mask over the TC. Of course needs some manual intervention when the TC changes from x min to xx min.
hope that helps.

Tobias replied to the topic 'Collection of Bugs in M5.4' in the forum. 3 years ago

HI Karsten,

yes that one is manageable but when the TC (see video above) is used too that element doesn't jump into the right x,y position.

Well link-behave seems not so easy to be used when you deal with variable text elements (not being a M5 expert) as such align was in the past much more handy.

Lets see whether and when Apple will fix that.
