It allows you to make a translation movement and/or rotation of  the reference image through a path with a  the desired criteria.

The basic steps:

  2. active Pixel Perfect and draw some stroke on it (1 pixel thickness).
  3. Optional: paint one pixel stroke end to white (start pixel).
  4. draw some item in other layer.
  5. select both layers and run 'path_animator.lua'
  6. fill in the fields and press 'Animate it'

HELP ! So I downloaded this and it works perfect however I have one question. I'm into side scrolling animation such as a car driving on the street w building going left to right so when I found this I was amazed. However, after using it I noticed I can't start a path off screen. Is there any way to fix this?? I need the images to start off the screen on the left ------> go all the way over, then go off screen on the right. Is that possible with this path animator?

Hi PatBanahan. The only way to do that (moving a sprite outside the canvas) is: 

  • Make a bigger canvas
  • Use the path tool in the usual way
  • Before exporting the final animation, adjust the canvas to the desired size.

I hope this helps. And thank you for trying the Path Animator.

What does the RotAux layer do? You showed it in FAQ 7 but I don't think you explained what it does

Hi! RotAux is an auxiliary Layer, it stores pre-calculated rotated images (the image which walks the path). If you want to modify the PATH and re-animate with the same image layers, RotAux layer can be re-used, and execution time is optimised (because some angles were calculated and located in RotAux). In summary: RotAux is used to optimise execution time, can be deleted if you want. I hope this helps, and thanks for your question.

It is a masterpiece

Thanks!
