Guidelines to Lunacy community:
  • Always credit the author of the content you are sharing.

  • If your content is inspired or based on someone else's work, make sure to credit the author of the original.

  • Do not share inappropriate content (spam, pornography, illegal activity, graphic violence, etc.).

  • Pay respect to other users. We are building a welcoming community and will not tolerate any kind of hate speech, offensive language, harassment or threats.

  • Community admins retain full discretion to remove content that violates any of the above rules.
  • Object Property Linking (think of the pick-whip tool in Adobe AE)

    Imagine a text box that takes up 400 pixels as it's width, and you need a line or a rectangle beneath it to act as an underline, this underline should take up the exact same width as the text,.. welcome Object Property Linking. A way for the user to link certain properties of an object - to the property of another object.

    This could also be a mathematical equation where you need a shape to always be 50% wider and taller than the object it is linked to

    in the background i recommend using an already popular language such as JavaScript, but for non-coders we could have a GUI that aids in the linking of properties by attaching "cables" from one point to another. kindly have a look at Adobe AE or SceneGroup Cavalry.

    I strongly believe this feature would catapult Lunacy way ahead of any other illustration app, I'm open to be contacted directly to give more insight on this feature or maybe some design suggestions.

      It's a rather complex feature with a rather low number of use cases. 

      I recommend thinking about some plugin that could deliver the main effect. Like: you selecting objects and pressing one button that will make the visual structure you are described.

    • Good idea, yes it is a rather huge feature.

      Let me study how to make plugins for Lunacy

      It'll be very nice!

      You could find some information about plugins here

      We're able to help you with testing your plugin and recommendations about fixing bugs.

      We'll add your plugin to the Lunacy plugin list (the list of plugins available to install in the Plugins tab).

      You could also publish it to

    • you are a great help Alex, thank you!

    • Hi Guys,

      Object Property Linking, akin to Adobe After Effects' pick-whip tool, allows seamless connection between different properties within an interface. By simplifying complex animations or relationships, it streamlines workflow and enhances efficiency. Users can effortlessly establish correlations, fostering dynamic interactions across elements. This functionality not only saves time but also empowers creativity by facilitating intricate design manipulations with ease.
