Re: Keeping file size down

(15gig). It's about 4 minutes, has quite a few layers and FX. In that case the size seems right. I had large projects as well, TVP is amazingly capable of handling these. If your computer allows (much RAM, fast disks, preferably SSD) you can continue to work with just one file, but you will lose ti...

The free Open Android version is compatible with Android 5 and above.
Previous versions of Android won't be able to run it.
Yesterday I saw a BOOX Prometheus https://onyxboox.com/boox_prometheus in the wild. Pretty impressive, but it seems it only runs Android 4.0.4, and has only 1 GB of RAM.

Re: Welches Grafiktablett soll ich mir kaufen XP-Pen Artist 22E Pro Drawing Pen Display oder XP-Pen DECO 02 ?

Ob du ein Grafiktablet mit oder ohne Bildschirm brauchst, kann ich dir nicht beantworten, das mußt du unbedingt selber testen. Es gibt 3 Sorten Zeichner: 1. die, die überhaupt nicht mit irgendeinem Grafiktablet zurechtkommen 2. diejenigen, die gut zeichnen können mit einem normalen Grafiktablet und ...

Re: Playback preview during multiplane FX

12 Layers is a lot for smooth playback in any software. I do my multiplane setups in Moho (faster setup), but previewing it is slow. I can speed it up a bit with reducing the view, but for testing a smooth run I have to render to video.

Re: Thundercats Roar

I've heard of a CalArts Style in the 90's, and it was completely different from this one. I think the mechanism works like this: for whatever reason, different shows feature very similar styles at any point in time. At any given time, several CalArts alumni work on some of these shows. Correlation i...

Re: 2 layers of the same colour create strange edges after export

The two multiply settings make sense when exporting stuff which will be bright elements on dark or dark elements on bright, since they tint the feathered outline to bright or dark, respectively. I just can't ever remember which does which, so I do a test every time ...

Re: 2 layers of the same colour create strange edges after export

Have a test and export the upper layer with 1. pre-muliplied alpha 2. without pre-multiplied alpha. Import to AFX and render. On of the should work fine now. Remember that you have setings in AFX as well about how to treat alpha. Write down the setting (in both programs) that works and stick to it.

Re: Random frames in AnimBrush

I should add that making this work as expected (using a brush with RANDOM over a selected range of frames by re-apply) would make it so much easier to create "moving holds" or "boiling lines".

Re: Could virtual studios become a thing?

Of course the idea of "virtual studios" will sound intriguing to producers, because it means rent and electricity bills and even the hardware will be paid by someone else for, so they can argue they need to pay you less. In praxi this will not work well especially for beginners. As you correctly sai...

Re: Random frames in AnimBrush

I've noticed this. BUT: if you just step forward a frame, don't move the mouse, and click into each frame, RANDOM works. It also should work to advance one frame, hit re-apply, advance, etc.

I agree it should work with any range of frames selected as well.

Re: Tool bar export fail

I've got a certain brush/toolbar which doesn't export as TVPX either in 10 nor 11 (brought it over by copying prefs). Because of this I made it a habit to save a "brush construction" TVP file which contains not only all frames I used but also a screenshot of the brush's settings.

Re: Tool bar export fail

Hm, no idea. There's a TVP folder in user/library/ which stores all your prefs, but no papers there. Have you done a finder search with one of the paper names?

Re: Tool bar export fail

You just need to copy the papers folder's content in the finder. Go to TVP in the applications folder, choose "Show content", Contents/Resources/papers. I use this to get rid of all textures I don't need, and to put my own ones inside.

Re: Why Black Frame on timeline? TVP11

Quite simple: you've chosen black as the overall background colour. Switch that to white, and all empty or mainly transparent keys will be white again.
