That's what I would have done, if my English accent was better and if we had a good microphone and a soundproof room :mrgreen:

Elodie, I haven't used a sound booth in ages and I have one in my house. A good microphone is sufficient. We recorded Isabella Rossellini's VO on a laptop in her kitchen. Our composer setup a sound system with mic and preamp for my students for little over $200.

You wouldn't need a soundproof booth, just a quiet room and a half-decent microphone (which are not expensive these days), a pop filter helps also.

I daresay, Elodie, if you did the narration with your French-accented English, all of the male animators would be asking for your telephone number :twisted:

That's the problem : TVPaint is not in a quiet zone (industrial zone with trucks) and the office is NEVER quiet :roll:

How do you think of to use Microsoft Windows "Sam" or MacOS X "Alex" for their narration ?

That's what I've ben doing lately, because I can draw and record video any time of day and then wake up at 3:00 AM, when it is quiet, to record the narration. I don't really like doing it this way though.

I have a new tutorial covering the natural media painting tools in TVP Animation 10. These tools give the most realistic paint on canvas feel I have ever experienced in digital art. Check it out!

Great idea, Terrence! TVPaint is great for this, I've been exploring some similar stuff with TVPaint this past week. You got almost a Bob Ross voice when painting those trees :-D

Thank you guys! I used to watch Bob Ross' show fanatically and, even back on the Amiga, tried to duplicate his techniques in the different paint programs available back then. Needless to say, we didn't have brushes even close to what we have in TVPaint today. It feels very natural.

If this goes on any longer, I see TVP being advertised as "now with original Bob Ross® brushes included!" on the shopping channel on TV.
