Re: Feature Request:

Hi, do you mean rotation of a control pin around other control pin in 2D or moving a control pin freely in 3D space? Actually, both are doable. The first option would need some more engineering, while the second one is a lot more difficult and probably requires some research.

Re: abstraction

Interesting creation, thanks! As for the Monster Mash app, currently, the only officially available version of Monster Mash is the web version. There's also a source code available, that can be complied for various platforms, but it doesn't include a user-friendly graphic interface (except for the w...

Re: Freeze mesh between "Pins"

That's right, Monster Mash currently tends to behave too flexibly when animating skeletal structures. The option to add auxiliary bones could help in these situations. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Awesome Tool!!! Some feature suggestions

Thanks a lot for all the suggestions for improvements! I would love to be able to import my template outline from a png. There are so many free and open source imaging softwares out there that it would be a shame to waste development resources on improving the drawing function within Monstermash - w...

Re: Animation and inflate issues

Hi, we appreciate that you're trying to push MM to its limits. You're right that to achieve realistic animation of thin legs, it usually requires more control pins, which may be difficult to synchronize. We're working on a solution to this problem, but I can't currently say if or when it will be ava...

Re: Change the order of objects?

The option to move layers in depth has recently been added. You can now use the Page Up or Page Down keys to raise or lower selected layers, and the Home or End keys to move selected layers nearest or furthest in depth.
