    Is there a way to animate in a circular motion? For instance, to make the wheels of a vehicle appear to be moving?

      Hello Mike,

      Currently, there is no circular motion tool included in PhotoMirage. You could approximate the effect with a series of smaller animation lines arranged into loops, but this would result in some level of rippling effects within the wheels themselves rather than a smooth circular movement.

      Thank you for the feedback however! We have passed this suggestion on to the PhotoMirage team for their consideration.

      Hi Mike,

      PhotoMirage does not have a tool specifically for animating in a circle. But there is an interesting technique demonstrated in this webinar, to animate a spiral staircase in a circular motion. If you don’t have time to watch the entire 30-minute demo, skip ahead to about 28 mins to see how the circular motion is done.

      Hope this helps! Would love to see the results posted to our user gallery
