Well, this letter is late a few days, but I have been really
busy, wait... Truth be told, I took a small vacation up
north for a few days to get out of the Arizona Heat! So,
We have some important information this letter, please
be sure to read it all...

Regards,
Jon T.

Mad Doctor Phil has been an endless resource to many
of us that use to see him all the time on Adobe's U2U
Forum for LiveMotion. His examples in LM1 have been
and endless resource to all of us. Mad Doc has continued
this by adding LiveMotion 2.0 examples for your pleasure!
Even though we have not seen much of the Doc, we still
have much to learn from his examples and studies in
LiveMotion...

LMC Hot Tip #4
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
LiveMotion has adapted some of the keyboard shortcuts
of After Effects for its Timeline. Remember in LM1 how
you would have to look at all the properties of an objects
Timeline when wanting to simply make an opacity change.
You can now show and hide, only the properties that you
want to see or not see in an objects Timeline.

Select an object in your composition, then open your
Timeline window. With your Timeline window selected
you can press any of the following keys to show a
specific property.

A : Anchor Point
S : Scale
W : Skew
R : Rotation
T : Object Opacity
P : Position

Now if you wanted to have your Timeline display Scale,
Object Opacity, and Position, you would hold down your
shift key while pressing S, T, and P. This would display
only these Object Properties.

Cool Site of the Week

From the Early days of LiveMotion 1.0, StyleMotion.com
has been a great resource site for news, information, and
files. StyleMotion has even added a new Forum to its
selection of ways to learn more about LiveMotion!

LMC Guestbook:
That's Right! I have a working Guestbook up and running.
Now, its not perfect, but it would be wonderful if you
all could stop by, take a look, post a message or
two, and post ANY BUGS or ISSUES you see in
the Guestbook.

What's Coming

We have been getting request's for more beginner
tutorials. Working with sounds, movie clips, loading
movies and the list goes on. So, I will be "Redirecting"
