Hello to all fans of Synfig.
I want to multiply and scatter one object randomly on a canvas. whether it is possible to make it with Duplicat Layer (New Layer-Other-Duplicate)?
or to copy and paste several times?
I am sorry for bad English, transfer through Google.
You can do it with Duplicate layer and with some tweaks in the duplicated stuff.
First try to place the stuff at a random place. Then convert the random seed to a sum of two values and link one fo them to the duplicate index of the Duplicate layer. Each time that the duplicate layer ask the context to render it would provide a new index which would be added to the random seed that would place the stuff in other place.
You can combine rotations, scale and translations all together.
Yes, it is possible. You need to stop the animation by this way:
Encapsulate all the stuff in a Paste Canvas Layer. This layer would offer you the Time Offset parameter.
Now convert that parameter to Linear
Time Offset = Offset + Rate*Time
Then make Rate = -1. This means that “each second it is one second minus” so the time is stopped.
Modify Offset to the time where the random shapes are at your taste.
but didn’t give result. Probably I badly understood. (I use Synfig of only 2 weeks)
I want to explain that I want: 1 layer to multiply 100 times and to insert on a canvas random, manually it very long: in LayerDialog the button to Duplicate and TransformTool.
whether there is a simple and fast way?
