Guideline Images request

Post by Peter Wassink » 26 Aug 2016, 11:21

The option to put up images around the project is very cool, but still leaves me with some wishes:

i want to "pin up" a modelsheet while working on a storyboard, but for every panel(clip) i have to set it up again!
because the guide only applies to the clip in which you set it.

I want to have the option to make a guide "global" for the project
This could apply to all the guide types because in the current engine all clips in a project have the same dimensions.

Also i'd like to make it as easy as possible to add images.
and therefore have the option in the library to " add (a new) image from Clipboard"

Related to that I'd really like to be able to add directly the current custom brush as an image guide instead of having to add it in the library and then as an image guide

I'd also like to have the image library global for the whole project, and could be nice to be able to embed those images in the project cause it's a hug issue when working in a team (or i missed something)

Then we see again... right?
And it would not really be a problem for the image guide.
But now, in the current technology, the image guide isn't working to its potential.
And i cannot use it for storyboardwork.
