I'm a new user and working with Pixera Demo versions while doing some early testing for a project. I have recently started to dive into the software more and have a few bugs that I have questions about. I'm not sure if these are common bugs, or just a problem with my demo version.
Here are my steps to reproduce in a simple file:
- Create a generic flatscreen screen
- Add a stock/built-in video to the screen as a single layer
- Reposition the layer within the display (manually via click and drag)
- Save the File
- Reload the same file you just saved
- Layer position is not remembered and is usually reset to 0,0,0 instead of say -335,700,0
And while I'm here, this is maybe a feature request or a question of a newcomer. The layer positioning GUI seems really inconsistent. It's very unclear how to get to the "Layer Key Values" UI in the upper right where I can actually set Position/Size/Rotation. The only way to control position manually seems to be via clicking the actual asset in the viewport. I would expect I could change position/size/rotation if I click the layer or asset in the Timeline, not in the viewport. While writing this, I did find that I can set the position in the keyframe area on the timeline, but that UI is a little less friendly and as a user I would have expected to have those same controls in the little layer UI in the top right corner with all the other settings like "offsets."
Additionally, is there any feature to just lock a layer position so you can't accidentally move it? I see I can lock screens. I guess the keyframes would be one way to protect against that, but it gets challenging when there are a lot of layers on top of each other
