Why doesn't Photoshop work like Motion?

Hi there, I'd like to know if I'm alone on this:
Motion is far more intuitive than PS.
I use PS often but in many cases I end up using Motion to make stills with elements such as text etc. Click and drag, visible filters which can be tweeked inmediately, the HUD etc. All those features make Motion a for more logical program. And if I'm not alone: wouldn't there be a place for a photoshop-like application for Apple to develop in Motion-style?

Well, while we're comparing Apple and Photoshop programs that are kind of, maybe a little similar but aren't used for the same functions - does anyone wanna bring up Motion and Flash - ungghh Flash makes my brain hurt and then I go and sob in the corner for awhile until I go back to Motion like a lost puppy. I think Motion is wayyyy more intuitive than just about any Adobe product but Adobe has some great features - so you just have to be willing to hurt your brain a little. But Flash......seriously.....can't we just use layers and groups?

  • I recently bought a lightning to 30 pin adapter for my new iPad so that I could continue to use my 30 pin to VGA cord, but when I plug the VGA cord into it it says it is not supported. They are all apple products, so why doesn't it work?

    If it is a lightning to 30 pin adaptor, and you have a 7th Generation Nano it has to fit the Nano.
    This is lightning to 30 pin adapter: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple%26%23174%3B---Lightning-to-30-Pin-Adapter/6651 936.p?id=1218803450821&skuId=6651936#tab=overview
    Is this what you bought?
    You need to contact Sony and see if they model you have is compatible with the docking adapter. It may not be.

  • Why doesn't Photoshop touch ask for access to local photos on my iPad so I can grant access and edit?

    Why doesn't Photoshop touch ask for access to local photos on my iPad so I can grant access and edit?

    That's odd. Does this mean that you want to have the request or that you can't see the photos even though you enabled it over the privacy/photos?
    If you enable it - it's not necessary to get the request. If you want the request the safest way to get it back is to reset the privacy settings by going to iPad settings/General/Reset/Reset Location & Privacy
    thanks,

    why doesn't siri work way from home

    It does for me. But it requires an Internet connection, so if you don't have mobile data turned on or your account isn't provisioned for it or you are out of range of a cell tower Siri can't talk to the servers.

    Are you really still running 10.6.3? If you are you should run the combo update as many issues were resolved within the updates themselves.

  • Why doesn't flash work during panorama pictures

         why doesn't flash work during panorama pictures

    HI..
    Try troubleshooting the Flash plugin ..
    Quit Safari.
    Open System Preferences > Flash Player then select the Storage tab. Click: Delete All
    Now uninstall the Flash plugin then reinstall new >  Troubleshoot Flash Player | Mac OS
    Very important to uninstall the currently installed Flash plugin before reinstalling.
    Launch Safari From your Safari menu bar click Safari > Empty Cache
    Now try a video.
    BTW... if you have the ClickToFlash extension installed, that can prevent Flash based video from streaming. It can also be installed as a plugin in /Library/Internet-Plug-Ins.
    And check to see if Safari is running in 32 bit mode. Right or control click the Safari icon in your Applications folder then click Get Info. If the box next to:  Open in 32 bit mode  is selected, deselect, quit then relaunch Safari.

  • Iphone 3g - why doesn't it work?

    I purchased a new pair of Nike running shoes excited to link up the sensor and get started using with my iphone 3G. However, I find out the Nike Plus only works with an iphone 3GS. I'm now going to have to return the Nike Sensor for a refund instead of having to upgrade to another Iphone model. Is there anyway around this? Why doesn't it work with the Iphone 3G? What makes the operating system in the 3GS different so it works?

    As evidence too there is a hack which gets it working as well:

  • Why doesn't Nike+ work with the 1st Gen Ipod touch with 2.1 software?

    Why doesn't Nike+ work with the 1st Gen Ipod Touch with 2.1 software?

    The second gen iPod Touch has firmware version 2.1.1(5F138) whereas the 1st Gen only allows 2.1 (5F137). Don't know if that has anything to do with it, but it's likely.
    Why doesn't Apple allow those with the Nike+iPod sports kit to use their external sensor on the 1st Gen iPod Touch?!?! I can't see why the sensor would be incompatible with the right firmware upgrade!!

  • Why doesn't JavaMail work, but PHP mailer does?

    I am trying to use JavaMail to send emails from my webserver. I've plugged in the host and the addresses are valid, but I am getting 550 errors. I've searched and found that I should change a setting on my mail server to allow relays from my webserver. However, we have a PHP mailer working on our webserver now, so presumably that relay is already in there. Why does the PHP work but the JavaMail doesn't?

    Can you turn on session debugging and post the protocol trace that shows the failure?
    The error codes alone are not enough, you usually need to look at the message included
    with the error code.
    Also, have you found the JavaMail FAQ?

  • Why doesn't tmobile work at ORD?

    Since upgrading to OS X 10.7.3, logging onto wifi networks has been much more difficult. At ORD, at least in the United Club, it is impossible using the T-Mobile network. Whenever I connect to the tmobile network, it opens the new (supposedly-quasi-automatic) wifi login screen. But it gets stuck there forever, with an indication that it is trying to connect to an apple URL. Why? Is there away around this? Here's the screen I get (forever):

    alright, you guys, forget about what i just said...   i know why it's not working, it is a file that is not as a quadratic picture but one that is just cut out of a quadratic picture. so it's probably that's why it is not working....
    so let's take this thing to a different level:
    how can i get things that i cut out from editors like gimp and made a jpeg file out of it get into imovie when they are not quadratic? 
    My idea is to make a video and add in the foreground some little pictures. something like a logo that i can't make with the writing software of imovie. So hoy can i add such a thing or is it even possible?

  • Disappearance of EPSON Printer Utility3 and why doesn't Utility4 work.

    I've been happily printing to this printer since about 2005 using my old 800mhz PowerPC Flat-panel iMac(2.1) as a print server. I finally decided to retire that box and plug the printer directly into the USB port on the Airport Express. It worked like a charm.
    Yesterday, I need to replace an ink cartridge and put a print job on hold. Today, not really thinking, I first went to Applications/EPSON Printer Utility3 to check on things and lo and behold, that alias pointed to thin air... /Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter/Utilities/EPSON Printer Utility3.app, created back in 2008.
    Evidently some (I assume Apple OSX) update along the line renamed the EPSON drivers, but didn't delete the alias from the /Applications directory, nor replace it with anything.
    Now, I find two options:
    /Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/Utility/UT4/Epson Printer Utility 4.app
    and
    /Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/Utility/UTL/Epson Printer Utility Lite.app
    "LIte" is launched by "Preferences/Print & Fax" and from what I can tell so far works fine with the Printer connected via the Airport Express. It generates ink levels, nozzle checks and head cleanings. I assume I'm printing via Bonjour, but don't know how to tell. (I have Bonjour set up in general for working with the other 2 Macs I have as well as using TCP/IP via an Airport Extreme with the Airport Express set up as a WDS network.) I had no problem setting the printer up to print via the Airport Express, and it prints fine.
    Other than idle curiosity about where Utility 3 went, Utility 4 is the question.
    If I try to launch it, I get a pop-up:
    "Epson Printer Utility 4 cannot be executed.
    The printer is not registered or this software cannot function properly using the current connections. (Version 8.27)"
    BTW: 8.27 is the driver version and PPD file version for the printer as shown in System Profiler.

    Same problem. I had a software update from Apple yesterday that had an epson driver update in it. I said, "sure why not".
    Today as I was printing I saw the red light flashing on my (directly plugged in) Epson Stylus Photo R265. Went to check the levels and Epson Printer Utility 3 alias in Application folder couldn't find the Epson Printer Utility 3.
    Checked out this thread and saw that the utility is in the library and found that it was in fact no longer in "/Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/Utility".
    But there is Utility 4.app and Utility Lite.app. Utility 4 will not launch and Utility Lite says, "Printer not registered.
    And so I googled "Epson Stylus Photo R265" which brought me to Epsons UK (United Kingdom) page and redownloaded the original (the one I had downloaded over a year ago) "Gutenprint v5.2.3" driver and walla "/Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter/Utility/UT4/Epson Printer Utility 3.app" is back.
    And I didn't even have to repair the alias link. Oh yea and I checked my levels. Need yellow.

  • Why Doesn't "find" work in VBS?

    I'm trying to write a VBS module that will
    detect when the data in a channel crosses
    some threshold. As an example, I include
    a line to check when channel 56 becomes
    greater than 5.0
    Here is the VBS line that checks for this:
    FirstValue = find( Ch(56) > 5.0, 1 )
    When ever I execute this script, DIAdem displays
    an error dialog with this message:
    Error in (Row:52, Column:9):
    Error message from DIAdem OCMD-interface:
    Invalid return value of the DIAdem kernel !
    What does this mean? Why doesn't the "find" function
    work? What other means can I use to do this operation?

    Hi jbrandim,
    The first parameter in the find() function is a string, so when you use this function with VBS syntax, you need to enclose it in double quotes:
    FirstValue = find("Ch(56) > 5.0", 1)
    Additionally, you can also call this function as a Formula Calculator function, since it is in fact a DIAdem function and not a VBS function:
    Call FormulaCalc("L1:= find(Ch(56) > 5.0, 1)")
    FirstValue = L1
    The cryptic error message is an artifact of the translation process between VBScript and the DIAdem find function. DIAdem automatically maps the return value of the find function, which is an integer, to the variant variable "FirstValue", as well as the input parameters. The mapping process from Variant to string in the first find() parameter failed, and
    that led to the error message you received.
