  • Stand Alone Proanimator 8.6 camera poses are uneditable.

    Posted by Scott Anderson on October 7, 2015 at 3:39 am

    Hi. I have an older Stand Alone Proanimator 6.0 project I opened in Stand Alone 8.6 and the camera track shows all the poses I previously made but for some reason I’m unable to edit them. I double click the pose to sync the camera position for editing and when I drag on the zoom button the camera zooms but snaps back in place once I let go. Any thoughts? I’ve used this program for a while but maybe I’m missing something basic in the upgrade. Running Mac System Yosemite 10.10.5. Thanks. Scott

    In case you’re having the same problem, Scott and I communicated through email and found this solution:

    To start off this problem is related to opening up a project with a camera that was created with an older version of 3D ProAnimator. Scott’s camera poses were not able to be edited even when he had his time marker over the pose. What he did was saved each camera pose as a view by putting his time marker over the camera pose, going to the 3D Preview panel and under the “View” menu he selected “Save View…”. He repeated this process for each pose.

    After Saving each camera position he deleted the camera track, added a new camera track and recreated the poses on the new track.

    I hope this helps. If anyone has more problems with this issue please let me know.

    Cheers,
    Alex Dow
