Like Letterman’s stupid pet/human tricks but for flame.
Here’s one I discovered just now:
Rename a library by clicking it…add a single or series of spaces after it…
If the library name ends in a number…it will increment it by one:
“Foo 101” -----> “Foo 102”
If the library name ends in a letter…the number “1” will be added to it:
“Foo Bar” ----> “Foo Bar 1”
It used to allow a space at the end of a name (it screwed me up on occasion). This may be a “fix” so that when you export a library the folder structure is xxx/yyy instead of xxx /yyy, causing all sorts of issues. But this is just a wild guess on my part. It no longer allows spaces at the ends of clip names.
Not sure if it’s a Stupid Flame Trick, but, next time you are in the old school Stabilizer, use Control + click to move your Reference window without having to precisely pickup the exact center of that little crosshair thingy.
@randy That’s actually useful information so I would think that falls under “pro tip” and not a “stupid flame trick”.
For me, it’s something weird or funny like this:
I’M DETERMINED TO BE BOTH WEIRD AND FUNNY.
Congratulations: You are half way there.
Ya know…this thread would be a great Logik Live!
Right click the viewer window or record tab to rename a clip.
There was once a flame artist who trained a white clip to roll over and play dead. He named it Rec. All the clients loved it and it got applause from everyone…The flame artist was treated like a celebrity far and wide. One fateful day in a chaotic flame session, he mistook it for a regular dumb white clip and accidentally deleted it. Can you hear the echoes of that poor artist’s cries? Sometimes when I mute the flame audio and listen carefully I can still hear that artist calling out for that poor clip…“Rec 709?..Rec 709?..”
Roll over Rec. (Soon to be a major motion picture.)
What about the time he accidentally killed his friend PAL?
OOOOOh. That will make a good Sequel!
this one is pretty stupid. there used to be a credit roll here…
That’s great one…right under your nose!!!
Yeah I was wondering where the signatures of the developers are hidden. But that was a long time ago when they did that easter egg. But maybe it’s because no one found it yet…
@johnt HMmm…no that’s too useful to be a stupid trick.
The OG of Stupid Flame Tricks.
Whenever someone posts that video I always watch it. It’s so amazing!
