Instead, you can elaborate for what purpose exactly you need sound to allow sub-frame accuracy. For many users the current way things work in TVP now is taken for granted, and therefore solutions for sounds accuracy are found with one method or another. If you have an idea how to improve such functions, manifest them and exemplify them for other users to recognize the benefit of your suggested improvements.
I also prefer the tape-style pitched scrubbing method. Hopefully the scrub method will be replaced in future. Still, you can smooth out the staccato in TVP quite a bit by playing with the Scrub duration value in the preferences panel (Sound tab).
Sorry for your suffering. I think that might be a differentiation between us. You suffer to produce your art. I'm a wimp, and I don't like to put up with discomfort, but I'm a hack. I try to minimize anything that distracts me from my work.Paul Fierlinger wrote:As for the comfort level... well, how much of our work has high comfort levels built in to it? My back and posture are completely destroyed from years of sitting, hunched over a drawing -- I take that back, hundreds of thousands of drawings. It got so bad I had to spend a good chunk of money on a special chair. Should I complain... and to whom; TVPaint or Wacom?
I have to up frame rates at times to deal with this. Sounds like you've had the same experience. So you do understand! But, again, you're willing to suffer for your art, but I'm not doing art, so I don't want to suffer. While persistence of vision allows for lower frame rates, I don't think there's a similar persistence of hearing. 1/48th (or 1/24th or whatever) second of sound is a pretty big chunk, to my ears.Paul Fierlinger wrote:To register a sound bite of less than a frame's length is superfluous if all you can draw is one frame. How can the equivelant of 24fps or 30fps be useful to anyone who draws at 12 fps? When I come across a soundtrack that doesn't give me enough information at 12 fps, I change that project's rate to 24 fps and draw with double the amount of detail.
While the mighty development team at TVP has made the perfect product for you, and have no personal need for money, I'm sure they want to keep paying Elodie without depleting their massive fortunes
If the idea adds a small feature that makes a few people just a little happier, and the development of it isn't too bad, then why not do it? Then, when people are looking at the new version feature list, they can have maybe one or two things that matter to them out of the 93 that might not.
