I just got a wild effect by accident. If you read below, I had a corrupt project. It was revived from the dead when I reinstalled all the apps on a fresh OS.
There was one original graphic file that I renamed to something like "helicopter" from its original name. Motion automatically found the root folder, but did not see a graphic called "helicopter". So instead of playing "helicopter", Motion plays back 1 frame of every graphic in that folder (93 images). Since I already had a replicator and a coupla behaviors going on, I made a very cool effect where multiple images fly by in an instant.
Just seeing how to redesign this effect from scratch. It appears to be based how the file is named in the Media Tab. The former graphic now is labled as an image sequence.
Wonder why certain images are cut off though....any ideas?
Yeah. It was as if the images were on a raster that was too small. It's OK though. I rebuilt it and came up with a super technique involving the replicator and image sequences. It's going on my reel before someone steals the idea. ;-)
