As some of you may or may not know, we've been working on a new Mac version and also version 2 of Hippo Animator. Unfortunately the Mac version still isn't ready so we decided to just release version 2 for now. There is a brand new trial, so if you've already trialed version 1, you can still trial version 2. Version 1 and 2 can be run side by side so you can trial version 2 and keep version 1.
The text box looks like the normal text object except it can't be converted to an image. It also supports scrollbars allowing large amounts of text to be added to a movie. You can even change the text using script.
It is now possible to set the image export options for individual images and even set JPEG. The image quality setting in the export dialog is still available, however this only changes the size/dimensions of the image. e.g. 50% quality in the export will create an image 50% in size that will still be show 100% in size. 50% quality in the jpeg setting makes a 50% quality jpeg with 100% size. The two combined would make a 50% quality image, with 50% of the size.
Hide Layers or Items in the timeline
Hidden Layers and Items
It is now possible to hide layers and items in your timeline to help unclutter your work.
Sort the Library
It is now possible to sort the library alphabetically or by type.
The new function:
Opens a url in any frame of the web page in the browser. For example, if you had a web page with a Hippo Animator movie in one iframe and a video in another iframe. You could change the video from the movie using this function.
We have a lot more features planned for version 2 and any licence for version 2 will get all the new features as they arrive.
