Circles and Ovals

Circles & Ovals - Point & Size

Circles & Ovals - Corner Points

 

There are two generators for circles & ovals, Circles & Ovals - Point & Size and Circles & Ovals - Corner Points. The first lets you draw them via a selectable origin point and height and width sliders in the generator's Geometry control panel. The second lets you draw them interactively in the canvas using two bounding point controls.

Circles & Ovals - Point & Size

The Geometry section for the Point & Size version of the generator contains an Origin point control for positioning the origin of the line on the canvas. The origin can be set to be the center, left, right, top or bottom of the graphic using the Origin Location dropdown. The Height, Width, Scale and Rotation controls can be used to set the size and orientation of the graphic. The aspect-ratio of an oval is set by varying the height & width ratios. Selecting the 1:1 Aspect Lock disables the Width slider and always causes circles to drawn whose size is set by the Height slider.

Circles & Ovals - Corner Points

The Geometry section for the Corner Points generator contains 2 corner point controls which can be used to set the bounds of the oval or circle in the canvas. To help identify points in the Canvas, you can enable the Show Corner Labels checkbox which displays point numbers next to the points. Note that you may have to switch the Canvas to Image+Wireframe mode to view the point labels. These labels are not visible in rendered video.

The control panels for both generators are arranged in sections, with different Geometry sections as shown, followed by common sections for controlling other attributes of the graphic. These sections are identical to several of the other Lyric Drawing Tool generators and are described in a separate Common Controls page. Note that the RT versions of the generators have certain features missing (fill clips and auto-fade). The control sections for Ovals & Circles include:
