V15.1 introduces 3 new model layer styles: VERTICAL ALIGN TOP, VERTICAL ALIGN CENTRE and VERTICAL ALIGN BOTTOM.

In this screenshot, all 7 model layers use the same vertical position but with different sizes. Thanks to the VERTICAL ALIGN BOTTOM style they all stand on the ground!

The new COLOUR prop of the camera layer is a huge time saver. Instead of having to adjust all colours of all layers, you can now do it with a single prop!

And realize that you can enter colour values higher than 255.

Great updates, Michiel

I know that the D&D models have there own effects for movement so replacing them with a other model would be very difficult to match.

I can make a two legged other then Bix model walk and move arms by overlaying them in a 3d modeler but often the arms don't work because the Bix model arms are not in the middel of the body but more back.

Now that you have the experience with 3d model movement would you think about a simple stick figure with average build that could work as a talent (presenter) that also could work with other human T pose models.

A next step could be then to have this rigged (bones) and to give them .BVH files (motion caputure) for movement like in Mixamo.

I would suggest to have several movements and poses that are working well for walking, running presenting...

Just think about it.

that's great Michiel. I think we should soon have the feature to enable play or stop for videos on Timeline. It is very useful and uses a lot, instead of Video & Audio being played at the beginning of the play project.
