Re: The "Animation Paper" guy is at it again

He's going to have his work really cut out for him now that OpenToonz is attracting a following... I agree though that his design work looks very promising.

Re: How to superimpose textured layer on character

When I work with these textures, two things are of importance: - the average lightness of the texture should be approximately 50% gray - if that is the case, then using the "Overlay2" blend mode (the recent addition that mimics Photoshop's implementation of Overlay) is the most effective. If you are...

Re: Psychedelic Animation Created With TVPaint

Hey Micah! Gorgeous work. I'm really digging the mixed media stuff -- the backgrounds look like they're watercolor? And some of the animation also looked like colored pencil or chalk. Can you talk about your process for making this video?

Re: CTG or paint bucket?

If you have a stylus that supports tilt, you can try the brush Projection or other tilt-based modifiers. This would be similar to an airbrush used very close to the paper instead of a distant spray. You might succeed that way in making a brush that has one hard edge and one soft edge.

Re: Animation working methods

I depend on the Freehand Flip function! It's the closest thing to traditional animation because you can roll the drawings and have them come back to the one you were working on. Here's a screen capture I took a while ago. When the drawings move, it's because I'm holding down the Freehand Flip button...

Re: Blizzard - Cinematics

The funny thing is, I'm actually quite partial to the work of David OReilly, who uses a lot of intentional "glitches" and highly computer-specific quirks as part of his work. His is some of the only 3D animation that excites me or that seems especially vital, original, or unique to the medium. His w...

Re: Blizzard - Cinematics

It would be very interesting to have a stop-motion style CG program where you can only go straight-ahead. Perhaps with the new VR technologies they are making now, there will be the opportunity to create virtual stop-motion sets and animate with the VR "gloves"?

Re: Blizzard - Cinematics

I'm really nobody who dislikes everything CG, but often if you see a direct comparison like here the animation looses some of it dynamic. Agreed. This is just a limitation of the current 3D medium. There are so many amazing things that can be done with a line drawing that can't easily be done with ...

Re: A simple suggestion to improve TVP for illustration

OK great! I never really understood how the Vertical Timeline worked before. I don't usually use the Right Drawer, so this works perfectly. Thanks!

A simple suggestion to improve TVP for illustration

I have a room set up for digital illustration/painting. What would be nice would be a switch/button/hotkey whose function is "Show/Hide Timeline" but which would LEAVE the layers part of the Timeline panel. That way I could have a layers panel as in other digital painting software, without having to...

Re: A Question about Tablet PC, Android and Nomad

It's true that some of this can be compensated for by adjusting the pressure curve; however at root there are limitations in the sensitivity of the hardware itself. This is particularly true among the Wacom Tablet PC's, I'm not sure why. I have also taken the more extreme measure of disassembling my...

Re: A Question about Tablet PC, Android and Nomad

I have used several Windows-based Tablet PCs with Wacom pens. They have all been quite frustrating in one way or another. For one thing, the scaling of UI elements on a small high-res screen makes it difficult to interact with most programs and with the OS in general. Some targets which are simple t...

Re: What are the best settings for working & exporting proje

Generally speaking, TVP's export is very "what you see is what you get." When you are zoomed in to the canvas at 100%, the final film should look no better or worse (i.e., no blurrier or grayer) than that. I use the AVI (internal) at Quality: 100 and Mode: RGBA when I want to render a movie file out...

Re: link more than one feature to the brushsettings

You can already do this to your heart's content. Each brush parameter is independent. You can have pressure/azimuth ("tilt")/speed etc. affect multiple parameters at once. I have many custom brushes for pencils that do just what you are looking for. :D
