Changes:

  • “Clear Layer Content” works on multiple selected layers under the playhead.
  • All labels’ “create” function works on multiple selected layers under the playhead.
  • Default icon for the “New Video Group” function is changed. (see updates section)

Updates:

  • The “Toolbar Settings” window has been re-designed.
  • Added options to customise general settings and the toolbar interface.
    • General: New Video Group options
      • Always create new Video Group: The current selection is ignored or used as an entry point in the layer stack for a new Video Group containing one layer with the default new frame length.
      • Create new Video Group at current time: If checked the first frame of the new Video Group will start at the current time of play head. Otherwise new Video Groups are created on frame 0.
      • New Video Group icon reflects the above settings.
      • Allow partial ungrouping: If checked only the selected layers inside a Video Group are placed outside/above the group. If unchecked the Video Group containing the selected Layer is exploded.
      • Duplicate multiple layers as a whole: When multiple layers are selected when the “duplicate frame” function is triggered you’ll be asked if you’d like to “duplicate multiple layers as a whole”. If confirmed all layers will be placed after the last selected layer. If denied each layer is duplicated individually and placed next to its original. By un-checking this box the default behaviour is to “duplicate multiple layers as a whole” without the need to confirm.
    • Interface: option set your own button size/scale for “Tablet mode”.
      • UI: Show group titles
      • UI: Show tooltips
      • Labels: All layer label colours are optionally available (inl. a dedicated “Reset” button). Check the box to add to the toolbar.
      • Tablet Mode: Set you preferred scale for tablet mode icons. Use the input window for values higher than 300%.
  • “Duplicate Frame” function now accepts more than one layer.
  • “Duplicate Frame” function can duplicate individual frames or a sequence of frames.
  • “Add Frame After” function moves the playhead forward based on the “New frame duration” value in the Toolbar Setting.

Animator’s Toolbar Pro 1.0.2 (01-03-2017)


Fixes:

  • Duration inaccuracy on TimeLine creation. This caused the playhead to be slightly out of sync with the selected Layer causing a Photoshop error when trying to paint.

    Using the Create Video Group from Selection function without selected layers will create a new Video Group containing a new layer with the default new frame length as defined in the toolbar’s settings.
