Save separate layers

Post by Manuel » 28 Sep 2006, 14:18

Here is the george script.
Use it at your own risk.
There is a path request at the start of the script.
Type a valid existing path.
Example : c:\

The layers are saved as avi

If you want another format you must edit the code.
Example :
if you want deep format change

Code: Select all

Extension = ".avi"
tv_SaveMode "AVI"
to

Code: Select all

Extension = ".dip"
tv_SaveMode "DEEP"
The layer's names are used for filename.
NO SPACE ALLOWED in the layer's name
Use different name for each layer.

If you find bugs, please report them here.
Thank you.

If you don't want to type the path each time, open the script in a text editor and replace

Code: Select all

tv_ReqString "Enter Path (ending by \)"
path = result
by

Code: Select all

path = "d:\mypath\"
d:\mypath\ must be a valid, existing directory.
This way, all the files will always be saved in the same directory.

Here is a special version that save in QuickTime format with alpha.
Don't forget to set up the path variable in the script.
By default, it is set to "c:\" .

IMPORTANT
You will lose your current brush if you use the script!!!

Manuel,
I kiss you. this script is perfect. works like a charm, and very smooth.
This should be embedded in the next release of tvpaint for certain.
Thank you for taking time to see to this script.

I wish I had the patience to learn the code and write my own scripts.
This will add a whole new dimension of tvpaint experince for me!

thank you millions.

hey Manuel,

I have tried to use SaveSeperateLayersAlpha.grg script in TVP pro, but something is not working right. When I run the script, it shows as if it is indeed exporting the layers, but no files are being added to the path that I put in the script (I made sure it ended with a \). I tried then the SaveSeparateLayers.grg, and after it brings the location request, it shows again as if it is exporting, but no files are written.

Can you please try the script in TVP pro?

cheers,

a.

Restart TVPAP.
Check your export file format.
Export one layer by hand to see if it works.
No space in layer name and path, try root path (c:/ d:/ ...).
Try the script on standard resolution (/16 ?).

Script not tested on Mac.

ah, of course, I made a mistake which was covered in September still...
The layer names - I didn't check for space in layer names...

it's fine now. Nowadays I'm not taking time to find the source of problems. I guess that life in London make me a bit impatient.

sorry to hassle you for this Manuel,
and thank you.

Hello ,

I ve try your script on TVPaint 10.0.11 but it s don t work.

The script create image but without any information on.

In fact i think the script hide all layer during export and don t show anyone.

Sorry for my bad english and thanks for your sharing.

Re: Save separate layers

Post by my1ironlung » 20 Sep 2013, 17:10

hey dudes i uploaded a tweek of this script. it will now export into seperate folders named L01, L02, L03, if you create the folders and specify a root path. also no need to add back slashes, and instead of using the layer name for the image names, you can make your own name when you put in the shot number. we needed this for a more professional pipeline.

one thing i can't figure out is how to get the layers exporting a hold at the end of the layer, or how to specify a mark in mark out point. but whatever. great job on the original script.

hello, well i guess no one cares anymore, but i updated this script, it now will only export the layers that you have turned on, any layers with visibility turned off will be skipped. it will however keep the naming order. for example if you have 3 layers, and layer 2 is turned off, it will export layer 1 and 3.
Again, make sure you have made folders for these layers: L01, L02, L03, enough for all your layers.
hope this helps someone out there.

Re: Save separate layers

Post by my1ironlung » 09 Jun 2016, 23:57

I'm very excited to see that they have included a similar script in the latest TVP 11 version. it really makes me love this software, as it seems that tvpaint really takes these forums into account.

i've tweaked their script a bit for optimization. it doesn't export unnecessary blank frames at the end of the sequence for layers that end early, and i've changed the naming conventions a bit so it is easier to import these images into another compositing software and keep everything in order.
Be careful not to include backslashes or any weird symbols in your layer names, it might have a hard time making the directories.

so here's the script:

Code: Select all

#param none

tv_getpath "home" //path par defaut
srcFolder=result 

tv_readuserstring "ExportDigital" "folder" srcFolder
srcFolder=result

//Ouverture du file requester
requester = FileRequester("<Select a folder to save in...",srcFolder,srcFile,"*.txt")
IF ( requester!=1 )
EXIT
END

tv_SaveMode "PNG" "b32"
tv_AlphaSaveMode NoPreMultiply

tv_layercurrentid
InitLayer = result

tv_layergetimage
InitImage = result

tv_firstimage
startingFrame= result
CurrentImage = startingFrame

tv_lastimage
LastImage = result

tv_clipcurrentid
ClipID = result

//tv_clipname ClipID
//ClipName = result
//these two lines above have been turned off, they identify the export by clip names.
//i've changed to project name below

tv_ProjectCurrentID
projectID = result

//tv_GetProjectName projectID
//ClipName = result
//tv_warn ClipName

tv_ReqString "hold up, what are we calling this? (ex: shot 1 = 'SH0010')."
ClipName=result

//run pre export sequence to create folders, folder paths and determine post behaviors ----------------------------------->

tv_LockDisplay "Initiating..."
layerRun = 1
layerCount = 0
WHILE ( layerRun == 1 )
    tv_LayerGetID layerCount
    layerID = result
    IF ( CMP( layerID, "NONE" ) != 0 )

We do take in account our users' needs, both on these forums and in real life too (when we visit studios and schools, or during animation fairs like Annecy or CTN Expo :D)

Thank you for sharing your own version of the script Btw :wink:
