LOR II Animation Window problem

Has anyone noticed in LOR II, when you draw your decorations in the Animation Window, and then zoom out, (fiil screen, hide controls) that your decorations do not hold their original position? This is only noticable when you are using an inserted background pic. For example, I have inserted a pic of my house, and drawn lights on the eves and gutters of the house, and then hid the controls to see more of the pic. This is when the original drawing no longer holds its position. Am I missing an important step? This will be a very useful feature, when I can figure it out.

During the beta testing we had issues such as this but I thought they had all been fixed. Looks like we need to recheck it.

I just tried in mine and it works fine.

Thanks for trying. My guess is that it has to be a certian combination of screen resolution, picture size, grid resolution, etc.... Bob will come up with some questions when he has a chance to look at this.

This is also working correctly for me, at least on the images I've tried.

What version of the Sequence Editor are you using? What resolution are you running at? Could you please send me a copy of an image that this happens on? Thanks.

Hi Bob,

I am using LOR II version 2.0.14 Screen resolution 1024x768, 32 bit.

I have been experimenting with this for the past week, and cannot seem to figure it out. Too many diferent experiments to go into. Please let me know if you notice anything out of the ordinary.

Thank you,

Brian

You might need to provide you picture:
"Background image file does not exist"


Any chance you have your display properties set to a non-default setting. I’ve seen the font size setting cause some strange effects (especially with MDI forms).

I have the same problem without a background image, each time I launch the sequence editor I have to reset the animation window.

What is the resolution of your house image? As rwertz suggested, if you could provide a copy of it we can try to duplicate the problem.

I have tried to upload an individual picture from my "own pictures" folder, not a LOR file and am unable to upload. The picture file is too large. It is a 1.91 MB JPEG image. I will send some screen shots of the problem and re-take the picture at a lower resolution and see if this is the problem. Thank you feveryone for the trying.

There's no need to re-take the picture. You can use Microsoft Paint to resize it pretty easily. Open up Paint - Start/All Programs/Accessories/Paint. Select File then Open and browse to the location of your picture and select it. Once it is open, select Image then Attributes from the menu bar. For example, I loaded a picture that was 3504 X 2366 with a file size approx 2.3 meg.

attributes_pre_example.JPG

The goal is to get the picture approx 800 - 900 pixels wide. You just need to calculate the percentage that the original picture needs to be reduced. In this example, I'll make it 25% of the original size. Select Image then Stretch/Skew from the menu bar. Enter 25 in the Horizontal and Vertical boxes and select OK.

Now look at the attributes again and you'll seee it has been reduced to 876 X 584 and the file size has been reduced to less than 62k.

attributes_post_example.JPG

Select File then Save As and save it to a different location - preferably the My Documents/Light-O-Rama directory. Use can then use this image for the LOR animation.
