This is to make it easier for Bob to know what we want, one place to look.
Please post only wishes for future releases of KoolMoves, if you have any questions or comments about current features, please create a new post. Thank you

2.a bone system
5.import of .avi movies for frame by frame rotoscoping

8.output to .avi or other format
9.import of .swf files
10.size of an object/shape in pixels
12.improved help files(updated)
13.improved layer editing ability, some sort of dialog box, think photoshop
14.way to tell how much an object is rotated, moved, etc.
I think Brad wants to lock points into new shapes or something. I think autotrace (not that important becuase of third party tools) and a skeletal frame tool are a lot higher on my list.
Even higher on my list are a display of time between frames on the main interface, a way to choose line and fill color before drawing shapes, and raster scale and fade. A shape library would be easy to implement.
A shape library is easy. In Library's just add a folder that has shapes in it and add a link to it like the text effects library.
Link to external Raster Application is easy. Allow users to customize a button that when pushed will open up a Raster Image ediotor Like Paint Shop Pro, MS paint, or Photo Shop etc. Again Real easy to do.
Action scripts- allow users a choice to script controls into the SWF like Flash does. No other SWF Tools but Flash allow this at the time.
MOVING SHAPES WITH THE ARROWKEYS IN TWO DIFFERENT SPEEDS
To move shapes, you can use the arrowkeys. This method is exactly but the increment is very small. It would be nice if there will be a possibility in future to move with a bigger/faster increment (without using the damned mouse). For example with the combination of „shift“ and arrowkey. If so you would save a lot of time in working / positioning shapes exactly. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.
More then one view available. Have two windows(or more) available so you can view different areas of your drawing, this way one could be zoomed in close, while the other is full view so you could see what your adjustments would look like. Available in many programs, haven't seen it in a 2d program, but it is a feature in many 3d programs, and I think it would be useful in KoolMoves.
You are exactly right on that being a "biggie". You like myself are victims of being spoiled by Corel's simplicity in their features. That resizing issue is HUGE to me too! koolMoves will get there soon enough. FlipBook can do all of that ( a professional 2D program) but it does not come nearly as cheap as KM. I'm not sure if Moho can do it though. It might be able to and it's more expensive that KM,..but not much more. I always though a direct twain compliancy scan import function would be cool too, but that can be worked around. the re-sizing issue cannot always be worked around, because you may not know that you want to re-size until you have a good look at it in the layout of which you are working. I agree with you, that must be addressed.
Were talking about EVERY object in the presentation. To select EVERy one of them. Not just the same type, but all!
Lets say I have 12 frames. I want to shrink the entire size of all of it. I tried the Transform, and it does resize them all, but How to I mannually resize and move ALL objects. The Scale/Transform function does shrink it all, but not in the center.
Originally posted by johnie Both of those features are already implemented.
You can Group any combination of shapes into 1 shape using the group command and the Transform> Scale/ Translate movie allows the second function.
