Is there away that we can adjust the hieght of some of the shells .The larger sizes rise out of my view.Also can you make all the salutes sound the same and break alittle harder
There is a control in the bottom left corner of the window that lets you zoom out to see the larger shells. Look for a little + and - button above the timeline.
I didn't know that was there......
Now all of my distances are jacked.. That changes things.
hmmm. good to know.
Ideally, for a professional layout, each shell would know it's own height for where it should break. For example, if you select a 3" shell, it should go off at around 300'. Same for all other size shells- see the other post for appropriate heights that we discussed.
This would mean, if you were doing a professional layout, that there would be a range in which you could place a 6" shell on the screen (with an angle it would be lower). I think if you were just doing a "for fun" layout, you should still be able to put anything anywhere.
The new release (see announcement http://www.finalefireworks.com/node/1006355) adds a new feature that locks the height of the shell to height appropriate to the caliber when holding the shift key down while inserting the shell.
