custom tools and paper

Post by Peter Wassink » 20 May 2015, 13:49

How does tvpaint deal with paper in the custompanels?

i created a custombrush that makes use of a custom paper, my colleague installed the tvpx but he doesn't get the right paper.
i assumed that the custompanel would with all the brush data and settings also include my paper, but this is not the case...?

how do i share the correct paper with him?
you cannot export paper from the paper panel and i can't find my paper in any of the configs in the tvpaint folder

#Edit#
i found my custom paper in the appdata folder in the user branch

the question still stands, is copying the paperfile through this backdoor the only option for sharing paper in tvpaint?

You could make a custom brush of your paper and save it in a custom panel and export it. Your colleague can imort the panel, take the brush and stamp it on a layer. Than he can make a paper of it using the paper panel. It is not very comfortable, but should work. If you don't have the original bitmap of your paper texture, than copying the paperfile could be the only solution - I think.

Sadly, yes.
Being able to share a paper would be nice, I'll add it in our todo-list.

great!

i guess even a simple "export paper(.dip)" option from the paper panel would help.

or would it be an idea to do this over the library?
make a direct link between the image library and custom papers

or (just an idea ... ) maybe a paper dependency feature,
i mean when a paper is involved (in a custombrush settings, or in one of the FX-Stack effect as source),
a [Save Project with All Dependencies] will embed the dependencies in the tvpp file, included the used Paper(s).
