Re: Keep image marks while merging layers

I hope the next update (probably available summer next year :roll: ) will fix this, in the meantime you can use my custom panel to do this.

Re: Improved movie preloading

Thank you Elodie!
I assume if possible JPEG sequences, cause they are much smaller and faster to read then PNGs?

Could you recommend any codec or setting which would be ideal to import it in TVPaint?

Re: Weight exercise

Probably it's just my personal opinion, but at some of the pretty fast movements I miss something for the eye to follow. You could try to add some smears at least in the few frames which have a lot of movement in them.

Re: 3d in Tvpaint?

If you searching for a way to combine 3D and 2D animation in one software package you should probably checkout Blenders Grease Pencil tools

Re: Importing Photoshop layers

Yea, the final format is usually 8bit (in DCP cases 12bit), but if I use subtle gradients I tend to use 16bit while working on it and put some slight grain or noise on top of the whole film before I convert it to 8bit. So there are some cases where 16bit makes sense, but they're pretty rare, that's ...

Re: Importing Photoshop layers

In some cases 16bit matters: Probably not for flat color, but if you got a pretty subtle gradient for example, you're getting banding pretty fast.

Re: Disney's Meander software

The stills look impressing, but in motion it looks kinda uncanny to me.

Re: time line improment

Oh that's useful, thank you. But it would be nice if there was some subtile difference between the empty frames and the filled one all the time I think

Re: Disney's Meander software

Moana was done using Meander? If I remember correctly they planned to use Meander on Moana, but then opt out, since the whole Meander workflow was in a too early stage to rely on. At least for a feature film.

Re: Disney's Meander software

I'm not really frightened by the aspect of getting replaced, I always welcome new technology, if it offers new possibilities to do stuff in a new way. And Meander has A LOT of possibilities to create something you've never seen before. But to me it seems like they only use it to do some lifeless 2D ...

Re: Disney's Meander software

I read a bit about meander for the theory part of my diploma thesis and I'm really not a big fan of it. I really like the idea of trying new ways to render CG animation and I really liked the look of Feast, but especially Paperman looked awful to me. At least for me hand drawn animation it's not abo...
