Changing Canvas after moves everyone 1 step?!?

Post by neugna » Mon Aug 06, 2018 2:23 pm

I wrote a show using the "College Football" canvas, but for teaching the director would now like them to be on the "Perfect College" hashes. When I go to change it, everyone on every page moves 1 step forward. I've tried selecting Center Grid on Front Hash or Front Sideline before changing and it still does it. Suggestions of how to change this without moving everyone's coordinates 1 step forward?

Hi neugna,

Unfortunately this is a result of how EnVision stores the position data for the performers. The performers and the field are generated relative to the middle, so switching to the perfect grid shortens the field in towards the center and makes the performers look like they are 1 step forward. Each page will have to be adjusted manually if you want them to be the same relative to the front.
