MOCHA PRO 3.1.1 Spline Expansion?
on Oct 31, 2013 at 5:45:02 pm

I wan't to expand my spline uniformly much like AE Masks have an Expansion property.
Is this possible.
I don't want to scale the spline and i'm not talking about edge width either.

I want my spline to expand all around uniformly.

Thanks!

mochaPro's Scale Tool should do the trick although I'm not certain why you have a requirement not to have scaling as a solution.

FWIW, AE's Mask Expansion works by scaling the mask from its center. Mask Expansion also works on the entire mask and neglects selected vertices. In mocha, the Scale Tool work on the entire spline or selected vertices and the scale center is user-definable.

I want to expand the spline boundaries not scale the whole thing.

The difference is noticeable when applying to odd shapes.

If you use the transform tool and hold shift + option key, you can do a global scale from center by clicking on the corner and dragging.

I believe what you want is different and currently not available within mocha. Easiest thing is to grow the mask from AE or another app.

I can log this as a feature request.

If you copy the shape to AE from Mocha, you can use the Offset Amount in PVFeather to do what you describe
