I've been working with CTA for the past few months, and figured I would add two items to the wishlist:

1 - Export to QuickTime/MOV. I work primarily on the Mac, using Bootcamp to run CTA, and it would be great not to have to convert my files. Although the software I am using reads AVI files, they are so large, it's helpful to transfer them to something smaller.

2 - Create a walk cycle preset for characters facing/heading to the right. I know the current preset can be changed using the "flip" command, but not all characters are symmetrical, and creating a inverted set of faces and body parts has slowed down my workflow at times.

Other than that, great product. I just finished my first animated movie with it - Revel's Rivals. You can check it out on my web site: www.nicholaskorn.com.

Thanks for the opportunity to make recommendations!

This posting made me remember somethin gelse sorely needed... Being able to flip indivisual body parts. Primarily the head... Imagine the body looking one way, but the head looking first one way, then the other.  You cannot do this in CTA today.

Not sure if this is in CTA already, but how about a direction motion control layer for the characters like in iclone ?
You know, open the 'edit motion layer ' panel , select the hand, foot, etc. and move it where you need it to animate the figure with a motion you need for your show.
If this is already in CTA, just overlook this post, i've been awake for two days now Hehe Gotta love insomnia Doze

Yes, that is already in CTA.
Use either the Puppet Editor or the Motion Key Editor depending upon what you are looking for.


See my CTA Tutorials on the YouTube channel CTAStepByStep
Check out EZColors for CTA. The easy way to change Render Styled (RS) colors.
