From my desk here in Brussels it looks exotic! I like the dust.

Agreed, certainly exotic compared to my location in Oklahoma.

Yeah, I did get carried away, but I have an excuse... several months ago I contacted DP Animation support and asked if they have a way to alter the perspective of an imported object as it moved closer from a distance further away and that it should grow in size. They answered with: "We are working on it and hope to have a way to do that sometime in the future."

They upgrade the software every two months with 'fixes' and or new 'items'. By coincidence this 'upgrade' was made last Friday. The first entry by me was my first effort using this new ability. They call it "Path Perspective". They offer no instructions for it's use, so one has to experiment to figure out how to use it.

Thank you David and Loyd, it's a place I love taking visitors when we have enough time.

Let me take a non animator guess. Draw the path. Set key frame points where you want the animated object to be. Set front and end size. The software should interpolate the in between sizes. I would guess it's not so much perspective as "shrink and grow on a path".

'Shrink & Grow Path' doesn't make as attractive a title as "Path Perspective"...

Thanks Loyd, nice work from you as usual.
I tried to get DP Animation a while back only to find it's not available for Mac users - looks like a nifty program.

I like your finish line Frank. You've managed to give some real dynamism.

On the basis of the last entries I checked out DP Animation too and discovered the same as you. It does look nifty .....but not enough to convert to Windows!

I used to keep Windows as a virtual OS but in the end I was only really using it for one other app. It wasn't worth the hassle and became just another OS where I had to learn to keep up to date with the changes and new tricks!

Guess I'm just an old dog!

Re: Challenge 918: Summer holiday
DP Animation is an interesting program. There are a large number of effects that I will never use, sparkling hearts, flashing flowers, etc., most likely designed for users that make animations for use on Facebook and other social media groups.

The most curious thing about the software is that it never stops playing while it is being assembled. Install a background, add an object layer or several if required, add any desired effects, lighting, fire, smoke, etc., all while the program is looping. Took a while to get used to, but now it seems quiet normal.

I might add that I have never made an animation with DP Animation that stood on it's own. I always have to make final adjustments with a twenty-year old Windows program, Animation Shop, originally made by JASC software. All of the gif animated object layers that I import into DP are made with Animation Shop.

Thanks David - you are on quite a roll - nice work.
I'll stick with my Mac.
Yes Loyd, I think I would find the continuous playing hard to get used to.
