Hi!

I love shot designer so much, well done!!

I have a request though, I would like the possibility to add my own lights. I have a big amount of pngs of different lights I designed for other softwares over the years. Wouldnt it be possible to add an "image light" button much like how I can now add my own prop via Image prop? That would be so helpful.

Thinking about it the same goes for character, Id really like to be able to add my own characters to have more nuanced characters.

I can of course already add my own lights and characters via Image prop and that works fine but then they are categorised in the wrong layer which is not great.


Thanks again for a beautiful software!

An update is planned that allow you to just drop a prop library into your folder structure, and then all those become available.

The only thing tricky is characters, because they have a lot more functionality, including colors, emblems and turn arrows, which is specially made for the current characters. But you could always make a monster as a prop and just animate it that way.

I don't have an ETA, only because we're hard at work on the much bigger Shot Designer 3D made in Unreal Engine, and this is what gets most of the love. But this would be one of the most helpful changes you could make to the 2D version, so it's top of the list. I was planning to stop work on the 3D version within the next week or two in order to finish the changes to the 2D version, and I want to get this feature in there too.
