Re: Multi-Backup Directory not working

just in case, when you change a preference setting, you have to quit TVPA, then re-start to take the modification in account.

Re: How to save the configuration of TVpaint

... Now i simply copy everything related to TVpaint from that folder? Is the system.ini also necessary? I don't think so, you just have to copy the config.ini file, or better (who can do more can do less), the whole config folder, named "Default" or what ever folder's name if your current Config ha...

Re: Playback not accurate

Try to change your preview settings :) I always calculate all my images before preview (using the "force proxy render" option), that way you never have lags (you just have to wait a few seconds before seeing your images moving, i think thats better than skipping frames during preview) I also use a ...

Re: Easy select/pickup question

what you're calling "selected" seems to be the cut brush tool,
this one has 2 modes : "Cut" mode = making the item disappear,
and "Copy" mode = keeping the original on the canvas,
if you want the first behavior, toggle the tool's mode to "Cut".

... I forgot to duplicate the levels to make it darker! ... just for info, another alternative is to apply an Alpha correction to "harden" the drawing's opacity, (Keying/Alpha Control or Histogram/Alpha FX) it's particulary interesting when you want to control the blackness of the line layer along ...

Re: Animated paper texture behind the pen.

Use the scan cleaner on the textures? Oooooh reeeeally? I shall try that in the morning. So the scan cleaner will give graduated alpha values to the image I assume? exactly, black => 100% opaque, white => 100% transparent, middle-grey => 50% opaque, ... but take care to "flatten" the profile curve ...

the camera zoom works as expected by draging in/out one of the 4 corners in the HUD, or by sliding left/right the mini-cursors to change the % value in the Tool: Camera panel, the scaling is made around the center, which one can be moved as well to pan the camera frame. the middle-right-side handle ...
