Ability to Skip/Hide Frames
When reviewing work/timing, it would be nice to be able to skip/hide a frame to show different timing. When you playback the animation, frames that are skipped would not show up and the video would play smoothly as if the frame was not there. This would be so helpful to 'edit' segments out for review.
Merged in a post:
A way to remove/add frames!
Idk how you missed this but timing is very important, we need a way to say "don't play this frame" on playback and vice versa "keep this frame x2 x3 etc." times! That way we can give accurate feedback on timing as well just by simply duplicating a frame or disabling one
Yes!! Having the ability to remove frames or extend some in order to experiment with animation timing during reviews would be super helpful!!
Retiming would be a huge benefit. The iframe limitations are understandable. But this would be a game changer for so many of our notes that have to do with timing.
This is a really cool idea. Generally SyncSketch plays video in streams, so on-the-fly editing like that would be an interesting challenge. I think we would also need to address this once we can select frame ranges.
Thank you for the suggestion!
Mike Jennings: Thanks again Mike for your replies. I find myself using SyncSketch for almost all my classes. The issue is that I have to complement this software with other types of software. It would be so nice to have SyncSketch to do it all... a one-stop-shop.
When reviewing animation, It would be so nice to be able to cut a frame or two out to see how fewer frames can heighten the expressiveness of a motion. Maybe the ability to duplicate frames to show the importance of a moving hold to enhance the readability of an action. These features in one place would be such a powerful teaching tool.
For reference, DragonFrame, the stop motion software has the ability to delete, duplicate, move and cycle through select frames. It might be a good visual explanation for the power of simple editing features.
If we didn't have to have 3 different software running to be able to provide in-depth critique, it would make class flow much more fluidly.
