I'm currently using version 11 64 bit. Can I make a jump straight to version 11.0.8?

I'm on a 2016 iMac and 27" Cintiq.
Just go to the Help Menu > Check For Updates. It should take you to a page where you can download the latest version (11.0.8 ) .

Re: Mac OS High Sierra (update 01/08/2018)

It looks as though the last post regarding problems with OS High Sierra and TVPaint was about 5 weeks ago. Has that issue been resolved, or is it still advised to avoid updating from Sierra to High Sierra? I'm sure someone from TVPaint will chime in with the official word on this , but if you were ...

Re: How to get Unlock Code?

Hello all, I just recently purchased and received my copy of TVPaint, but I'm confused on how to get the unlock code. Where would I email to receive it? I looked at the FAQ, but it says to check my TvPaint account, which it didn't make me sign up for BEFORE I bought the license. So there's no recor...

Working with a friend on his animatic (he's new to TVPaint and I'm coaching him on using it) . His first version of the animatic had the entire film (3.5 minutes) all in one Clip , 5040 frames . He scrubbed through the soundtrack (a song) frame by frame and carefully marked off the major beats and m...

Re: SparkoCam software to use DSLR camera signal for video capture in TVPaint

Thank you for sharing this! It could be really helpful. :) I want to run more tests , but yes, I think it seems like from Sven's quick test of the trial version of SparkoCam that it has the potential to revive TVPaint's usefulness as a stop-motion application. At the moment video capture in TVPaint...

Re: Light color scheme problem - color options improvements needed

Some time ago Peter Wassink had uploaded a couple of dip files that could be dropped into the icons library of TVPaint to replace the default icons for Activate/Inactivate Layer and Activate/Inactivate Light Table . I'll try to find the link for you. Here's what mine looks like with Peter's icons -...

Re: Light color scheme problem - color options improvements needed

I usually prefer to work with a light color scheme. Unfortunately the new TVP design doesn't allow it, or at least I cannot find a simple way... In the screenshots you can see how light all the TVP default icons look like on bright background - barely visible, especially on a Cintiq... Same goes fo...

Re: Default Timeline zoom ratio

TVPaint Developers - This feature request is over two years old now. Is it possible to implement what I requested in the posts above , regarding the default Timeline View ? Perhaps it would be in Preferences > Display > Timeline View (with choices of: Compacted or Fully Expanded upon opening project)

Re: Cintiq vs Huiion

I just want to let others know that I found a solution to my driver problem, which was that the new driver was incompatible with my old Cintiq, and the old one produced jittery lines. I am still with the same Cintiq, on Sierra, using the last driver compatible, which is 6.3.15-3, from 2015. I got a...

Re: Gray areas of paper drawings are showing

Peter, The project I was testing this stuff out on had scans that were already cleaned, so yes, I was wanting to know how to affect already clean drawings. But then I also wanted to see how the method that DT (and you) have described might work. I chose Multiple FX and then Histogram, but it didn't...
