Unhappy Shapes! :( - 01-30-2009, 10:56 AM

I am currently trying to make an animation with 2D line shapes (preferably to be drawn on the ground). It is on geometry and I would appreciate any help to draw any polygons! Currently, I am trying with 3D text dots/hyphens but it is really difficult to get a geometrically perfect shape. The only drawing software I have is Photoshop. Thank you ever so much for any help at all!

Make your line drawings in Photoshop - with colors and transparency as you want them (i.e., if it's just an outline, everything but the lines should be transparent). Then export as a .png file with transparency and import that as a billboard into Alice. You can also import additional files with the same canvas size as alternate textures for the billboard - and copy and resize as needed in Alice.
