Im not sure about the offset issue you mentioned.

1.Set the 'OffsetX/Y' to you need.
2.Set the RotCenterX/Y to same value
3.Rotate by 'Angle'

is it OK?

A layer on/off switch/checkbox would be helpfull.
There's already a layer on/off switch. :shrug: The 'eye' button.
Thanks didnt see the 'eye', still a checkbox would be good on every layer.

Noooo!!!! I HATE maximised windows! But if the window size settings were stored on exit, and restored on load, then that would suit many ;)
Yes. :)

I think this is a worthwhile FR.
Yes, that's it.

Anyone knows ?
Or without knob, just an led vu meter thats not vertial or hz.

Anyone ?


btw. led vu meters creation, vertial and hz would also be nice to have
in KnobMan.

Interesting.
atleast
* Output BmpSize X,Y exchange
* change the primitive aspect
* OffsetX,Y exchange
* RotCenterX,Y exchange
* if MaskType is Horz,Vert change
but some case, may not work properly. ex. if you use images.

Is there someone try to write plugins for KnobMan if I provide Plugin I/F?
I think that may be a simple win32 executable that handling .knob file format.

Another great update, 8) plugins would be cool.

FR, change the current layer into an image and use it as a image layer for when more than one mask is needed.

Thanks again!!

If you load an image strip into a previous project it crashes
Also never previously had to move the task bar down to get to lightdir
In the lighting options

Cheers

EDIT Under use this version is really really bad
It crashs all the time
I can make it crash everytime by changing the preview and render frames to 1,1

Yep unusable at the moment im afraid i'm gonna step back a few releases

Thx for the report. yes it's a bug.

Please try 1.12
http://www.g200kg.com/en/software/knobman.html

And, this version include the Plugin that try the Horizontal/Vertical slider conversion. The conversion is NOT perfect because some primitive can not behave equivalent to Horz/Vert.

seems need some more improve for full-auto conversion.
