Re: Improved movie preloading

Depends on what you'll do with the imported frames.

- PNG in non-lossy, better for material that WILL show up in the final product.

Re: Improved movie preloading

TVPaint only works with uncompressed data (unless you DON'T preload, but that has it's own quirks) Importing 90s of 1080p @ 30fps will use : 90*30 = 2700 frames * 8Mb/frame = 21Gb of RAM... Flushing this to the tmp file is what slows you down the most. Is the tmp file on a really fast HDD/SSD, and i...

Re: Disney's Meander software

The motion field is generated by the 3D software, almost for free... really nothing here...
Much more harder to generate from 2D imagery (being it live action or drawn).

Re: Help! TVPaint 11 files not opening in TVPaint 10?

Projects saved with v11.0.3 using CTG layers will not be able to be (fully) read with previous versions of TVPaint Animation 11 !
As it says, with previous versions of *v11*.
That's because there was a subtle bug in previous versions of TVPaint Animation 11... :(

Re: Good/Functional design

To me : - New should maybe be filled ? (filled dot = object/document) - Load and Save have the arrow in the right way, however they should have a black dot at the "empty" end of arrow. That way they means something like "get/put the object from/into the box", i.e. the disk. Sure they would look clut...

Re: Good/Functional design

What is 'intuitive' ? since the user already sees what each button does. "Once upon a time", the floppy-disk icon for the "save" button may have been 'intuitive'. (Although I always prefered the one with an arrow pointing toward the floppy). Nowaday, which student has even seen a real floppy ? Why i...
