hello
so i'm interested in animating backgrounds/concept art and i just wanna know what would be the difference (ESS vs PRO) in the final render (for this example):

ESS version lack meshes and it seems a feature that's pretty important for what i want to accomplish
maybe should i look forward to wallpaper engine?
anyways thanks for your time

Hello! Meshes are a feature available in Spine PRO only, and the same goes for constraints if you're after 2.5D head deformation.

I'll drop you some tutorials on how to achieve the effects you're after in case you decide to go for PRO (which I totally recommend since it comes with updates forever)
Here's how to set up a head control:
Mix and Match example: Face control

Here are several twitch streams where art similar to the one in the video is rigged and animated in real time: Spine: Twitch

I don't know about wallpaper engine, it looks like software to apply video wallpapers rather than create them?

I've been working in Spine for a couple of years and I'm glad I bought the Pro license. Once you use meshes and constraints, you will never go back.
We're making complex games almost entirely in Spine! Consider signing up for the closed alpha of our latest Project: https://www.exceptionullgames.com/knockout.html

So I bought Wallpaper engine and played with it a little bit, it's very cool!
Here's the two workshop items I published so far:
Owl that follows the mouse: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1848270557
Just a windmill using the old Spine widget: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1848268108

The two examples use an external loading from my website because it won't load the files locally (sigh) but they show how you can add a simple scene which is very lightweight, or an interactive one very simply!

If you wish to do something similar to the owl, download the files from the workshop, upload the files on a webspace.
Make sure to have a left, right, up, down animation, as well as an idle animation. it's important that the idle animation has a key that defines where the head controller should be, or it will explode on your screen without one. Then replace the json names and the animation names with your own ones.

Regarding the tools wallpaper engine offers to animate, well, they are nice if you intend to do tiny little things, but of course there's no comparison with the freedom Spine offers, especially considering interactivity :D Also there's no reason they shouldn't simply work together. Thanks for sharing this tool, now I can finally have my little owl peeking at my work haha.

If you have further questions I'll be happy to answer :D
