Hi, I’m new to using facer and really need some help figuring something out. So I started today out trying to get to know the layout and the basics so I can create some cool simple faces for my fossil gen 5. I added everything I wanted on the face, designed it all and sent it to my watch. Everything worked great and looked just how I wanted for a basic face. I then wanted to make the background spin slowly (as on of my favourite faces has the effect) just to see how it works. So I messed around with it to get the speed I wanted and it centered on my central point. It seemed to work well in the preview and editor so I sent it to my watch but the background doesn’t appear at all. I can change the background colour and it changes it on the face but I can’t put my desired image and make it spin. It works fine when it is the still image but not when I make it spin.
I’ve tried changing the background to a different image, making it a seperate image layer, changing the size of image, tried different image formats, cropped the image to fit inside, analog and digital, just a blank canvas with the image and nothing else, I signed up for the pro version, sending it to my watch from my phone. I don’t know what else to try. Please help, all ideas are welcome and I will try everything recommended until it works. Thanks.
Yes, inspection with a link to the face or else just post the expression you used to rotate the image will enable the experts here to help you
I don’t own a Fossil watch, but from reports here they seem to be fussy about Facer expressions. Expressions that work in Creator and on Samsung watches sometimes just don’t on Fossil… Can be a small thing like brackets or spaces…
Usually you’ll want to tie your animation to the #DWE# tag which triggers animation when the watch wakes up.
Advantage of tag #DNOW# is the continuity through the whole day. This number is growing only.
