Deleted Clip

Post by dguest » 09 May 2015, 05:10

Hello,

I'm a new user to TV Paint, I've been working with it for a year now so I stick with the simple stuff. Unfortunately, one of my clips recently went missing. I save them all as I go, both to my computer and my hard drive. The file exists on both, as I named it, and is listed as 5.1 mb so there's something there, but when I open it in TV Paint, there's nothing there. It opens like a brand new project. The same thing happens on both my computer and my hard drive. Any ideas? This clip took 6 hours, I really don't have time to redo it. Anyone who can help me out here, you'd be a lifesaver.

Have you looked under the 'Projects" tab? Perhaps it's there with an empty clips in front of it.

Maybe should we add a warning when the first clip of a loaded project is empty.
Indeed, this question comes often. :)

I think it has been discussed before, but when re-loading a W.I.P. project,
if we had a toggle-option (in the preference panel ?) to choose "open project / starting position (in the Timeline) :
- A) project's 1rst Frame /
- B) current Frame where we were when last quitting ;
imo, if B) is the default option, I think we will get less "why my clip disappeared ??? " from newbies .

If TVP could detect wether a clip contains pixels or not, and which clip, it could maybe open like now in clip 1, but display a note like "There's nothing in this clip. First clip with content is clip # 3."

(Which reminds me: what happens if a multi-clip file from TVP Pro is opened in TVP Standard?)

It opens the file with all clips (yo ucan create several clips within TVPaint Standard : you just cannot read them as an animatic or enjoy camera feature)
