Re: TVPaint is always closing down

Good luck . I can't help you troubleshoot it , because I've still running El Capitan , not High Sierra. Did you contact TVPaint via the main contact form: https://tvpaint.odoo.com/en_US/page/contactus ? (although keep in mind that if you're in the U.S.A. , it is now after business hours in France an...

Re: TVPaint is always closing down

Maybe it has to do with the updated High Sierra for Mac. This seems likely, if everything was working ok before , but now it's not (if the only thing that has changed is your update to High Sierra). Did you save a bootable flash drive of Sierra or El Capitan so you can step back from High Sierra (o...

Re: Automated inbetweening

Auto inbetweening could be awesome if used in moderation. It would be nice to strike a balance of automate half of the in betweens, while drawing the other half. I'm sure if used in moderation, auto-inbetweening could speed up the workflow without leaving the animation lifeless as it often does. I ...

Re: Two versions - two dongles

Hi out there, Is it possible to have two versions of tvpaint installed (10 and 11) using two dongles. One for each. I'm normally working on 10 but need to work on 11 for a company I'm working for. So far I have downloaded the trial version of 11 but despite having the fitting dongle plugged in I am...

Re: a scene that I just worked on, welcome for feedback

@ D.T. Nethery: Yes, I am gone upload a gif as attachment (let me know if you can see it), thanks! Yes, I can see it now ! Thanks. It looks very good. I agree with Cardin's comment about the smoke/steam effect . A bit more stylized version of smoke would fit the scene better. Also, I wonder if perh...

Re: Various stuff made with TVPaint

A TVPaint sighting : Video on the making-of "Captain Underpants" (Dreamworks Animation) shows directing animator Rune Bennicke animating tests of the characters with TVPaint (the final animation was CG model animation , but the early tests were hand drawn) . https://youtu.be/Bq4OHDx1pZM?t=87 Rune TV...

Re: a scene that I just worked on, welcome for feedback

At first I did not see any animation (the GIF) , only the still image . Then I realized there was a broken image link that was not showing up . Right-clicked on it to try to open it in another tab, but my browser security settings are blocking Giphy.com because of the site's security certificate bei...

Re: Making sheet for people working in another software

I could not find a way to get .psd's which is what I need. I imagine it's because I haven't found the right place to specify. Ok, if you absolutely must have .PSDs for the image sequence (instead of transparent .PNG) there is good news and bad news about that: Good news : using the Flix export opti...

Re: Change on dongle replacement without notice?

I think what could be done is to include a printed notice on a slip of paper that is inside the install DVD packaging , which has the same text as the FAQ , emphasizing "Don't lose the dongle or you will have to pay for a new license" . Also , maybe put the same notification on the invoice. Because...

Re: Making sheet for people working in another software

What if I have already sent the scene to another company, and they have imported everything into Toon Boom Harmony, and then I come back with a whole new set of names for the same drawing that I sent them, because I retimed? That is very confusing. They will either have to rename each image by hand...

Re: Change on dongle replacement without notice?

I attend Concordia University and recently asked about 20 students who own their own private copy of TVP for years about this change in policy about dongles. I've lost my dongle, what can I do ? You'd better look a lot harder or pay for a new TVPaint Animation license... It seems pretty brutal, but...

Re: Making sheet for people working in another software

I don't understand why people would want to have instances named for the frame number. What happens when it is retimed? With the custom panel I'm referring to (Mads Juul's 'Tracker Shortcuts') renaming a series of instances on the timeline layer is just the click of a button . So if the timing chan...

Re: Making sheet for people working in another software

So now every layer has it's own name and every instance on that layer has an identifying Prefix letter and is numbered to the frame. That feature is also included by default in TVPaint now :) Is the feature mentioned anywhere in the User Guide or any of the video tutorials ? I'm not sure how the ne...
