 Post subject: Object VBL on Non-Center Aligned Door
PostPosted: Sun Jan 14, 2018 3:01 pm 
I'm having a bit of trouble with the Object VBL on a door when it opens and closes.

I change the alignment of the door in the Token window to be either right aligned or left aligned rather than center aligned so that it will swing on its hinges rather than from its center.

When I put the Object VBL layer on the door it's fine. But when I run the macro to Open the door (rotate it 90 degrees) the Object VBL is no longer on the door but where the door would be if it was aligned center on the tile rather than left or right. When I close the door it lines up again.

Does this make sense? I can include some images of the misaligned VBL if needed.

Tom

I found having a door image centered (from center to edge) is the best method. You then make the door large and it rotates around the center on the hinge.

Sounds like there may be an issue with the VBL and offset points? I'll test it locally when I get a chance but screen shots always welcomed. Just make sure to be on the VBL layer so we can see what's going on and take one of the token config as well (the tab with portrait and offset images).

Is the door on the token or object layer? Also, did you move the image in the config tab? I can see this being your issue. I made a video on how I do VBL doors.

Actually I watched your video before I tried it myself. They key, that I missed, is the image file itself has the door already centered for the swinging on the hinges. I used a full width door and manually moved it on the Config Tab which causes the issues.

Thanks!
