Missing the GIMP

I miss the GIMP paint program. I am now using Affinity Photo and Affinity Design they are Mac softwares and the reason I switched is the GIMP took so long to load. But Affinity is another greed driven software rushed out with broken updates and the buyers doing the de-bugging.
I still would go back to GIMP in a heartbeat if I could get my money back. But once I pay for something I stick with it until I can't stand it anymore. Right now I have Photo and Design the old working version the broken new updates and their betas where we get to do the de-bugging. What a bunch of well you know. So much for this rant. My advice stick with the GIMP.
Oh yea Affinity was picked as the Apple app of the Year in the app store, what a joke. But it does represent the Apple way of having a store full of broken software and greed driven developers.

Multitrack on my iPad

I've been using Multitrack Studio on my iPad for a few weeks now and I find it pretty good but it needs a few things. Mostly in the score editor. But it is probably not geared towards score writing.
Just the damn Piano Roll. (not a Fan) There are control handles in the Piano Roll that are not in the Score editor. Too bad. But it is still better than Symphony Pro those guys can't seem to get their finger out. That also is too bad. I still find myself going to Music Studio for realtime recording as that is also lacking features in Multitrack Studio. Well so much for that.

Poser Tips
When importing wavefront .obj in Poser un-tick all but "Make polygon
normals consistent"
If you cannot find a texture in Poser you may have Poser set to
shallow search.
Move the origin:  Once the origin is displayed 
(Properties check display origin,and animatable origin)
you'll see three extra dials, OriginX, OriginY, and OriginZ. 
(double click on the dial and set: sensitivity to 0.000100 for precise move)
These dials obviously move the origin around, but not in the same way
  that you would move an object around.When you move the Origin around,
  you are moving it around in relation to it's object, nothing more.

Anime Studio wins!


Anime Studio wins! I spent all day trying to make a vector image of a cartoon wedge of cheese, Using Inkscape, and the trial software of Affinity Designer, trying to connect nodes for different line objects was a no go in both programs. Went into Anime Studio Pro 11 and within 5 minutes and the auto  weld turned on. Bang cheese done. Hummm. Guess the vector software I will end up using is Anime studio.

another robbery in Bayridge
Scary Stuff!
Over 5 burglaries!

Thats June and it’s only the 16th.

Animation ....

Animation is not easy plus very time consuming. Rendering....Rendering...Rendering.
I find that transparency for compositing is the biggest problem. Very hard to get working. Every software seems to be different. What works in one won't work in another.Quicktime is only 32 bit when everything now uses 64bit. Get it together Apple.another way they force you to use f&)@ing iMovie. And the sizes they will let you render at. I hate Apple more everyday but there is no other choice. Arrggg..Cable Television the Electric company, Apple, Gas water theives all of them, lessons in GREED!
Well that's it is the weekend!
