Thanks for that last video Helm, I've always wanted to see how Promotion does tiling/mockups.
The updating multiple tiles at once feature looks handy. Not to sure about drawing a background merged into the tiles (foreground). Seems a bit cumbersome especially if changes are going to be made to either. Is there no way around this?

Congratulation this story is happy end. Thank you. - Ghost & Goblins

ProMo isn't made for layer work. Next version will however, support layers.

There is a way around it. By abusing the onion skinning, you can just set the layers so that you have a transparency colour and each layer is 100% visible. this way you can set up as many layers as you want, but they are not as dynamic as normal layers and not really seperate. all it does is that it shows the frame underneath or above, whatever distance you want. ace for animation and i abuse it a lot for other things.

and yeh 6 will have layers.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

maybe a totally cheeky question but, would you mind if I show some of these vids on another forum (question to everyone) some people just can't think outside Ms Paint, and most of these are perfect examples of why paint just slows you down.. also I know someone who wants to know how to go about making a platformer (mockup atleast) and Helm you've just summed all that up into 23 minutes and 30 seconds of video. its all self explanitory..  ;)

Also am I free to post a vid of my own, I got the software, just feelin reluctant to post anything..  :(
I've not got anything interesting to type here..

I doubt anyone would have a problem with you linking to the thread. Just don't hot link a file if it looks like it's being hosted on someone's personal website. Direct linking to Rapidshare or MegaUpload probably wouldn't be an issue.

Any yeah, anyone and everyone can post a video. Odds are at least one person will learn something, and watching yourself and your work habits is useful in finding ways to improve your workflow.

Terley, I see no problem with either of these propositions.

I already asked that question, check ter-o's post on the first page.

The settings I've been using are:

TechSmith Compression Codec (TSCC)
Highest quality setting
15 frames per second
Keyframes every 10 frames (makes seeking nice and smooth)

Captured in 32 bit, screen res 800x600, recording res a smaller region that only displays most important windows/palettes.

This can all be set up really easily in Camtasia--it's a simple but powerful screen recorder/video editor.

Hey Helm.
What program were you using in that video?
