View Full Version : Messiah Reference Question

03 March 2006, 01:36 PM
Hi... Newbie here...

I have a question about Messiah: Is it possible to load a background reference image for posing? It's something that all Modelling tools allow, I'm just wondering if you can do it in an animation tool such as Messiah for precise KeyFrame tweaking?

I see the onion-skin feature, but if I understand it correctly, it is simply to allow you to see LAST keyframe while placing the next one.

What about an external reference (JPG, TIFF, etc) what is brought in to use as a reference for positioning? Anything?

"play" tab -> image manager -> load image (set sequence length) and set as background. Offset as need be.

Is this what you mean?

Yes! That is it!

I was going crazy, looking for it in the set-up tab... I don't know why I just had it in my head that if it was not there, that it didn't exist.

Thank you!
