Re: transparent mask? caracter passing behind a tree / animation + video

Fastest way:
New layer, paint that tree with a broad brush in all frames where it obscures the character.
Duplicate forest layer and put on top.
Use new painted layer as mask and erase all around it from 2nd forest layer.

Re: Crashing on Save

I somehow doubt that the actual file size is a factor since I've successfully worked with an 11 GB file in TVP v9.

Re: Underwater Caustic Effects with Perlin Noise

The funny thing about this "underwater effect" is that you don't see that in nature while underwater. The "underwater ripple" is a film convention, like a speed line in comics. So I'd be totally happy with just a ripple glass being moved across the screen, mimicking the age old effect.

Re: How to create Rounded Shapes Polygon, Square etc

The documentation is misleading: there's no setting anywhere to create shapes with rounded edges.

Use a big round brush and outline shape tool.

Re: Crashing on Save

This is just waving dead chickens, but you could try and create some 10 MB files in Photoshop and save, then try TVP again.

Does ist happen when you just save, or also when you save with a completely new name?

And of course the dreaded support question: how much free space is on that drive?

Re: Color change

In space or in time? Both are possible.

Time: a very simple trick is to have 2 versions of the same drawing with different colours. Just stretch this layer with interpolation ON.

Re: Crashing on Save

That's odd, TVP is one of my most stable programs. OK, I can only guess:
- any other software running at the same time?
- same problem with any other program (like Photoshop)?

Re: layered textures

Any mask can only work if there's transparency in the layer. If you want to affect only parts of that photograph, you need to isolate those parts first (by drawing a mask in a new layer).

Where is it saving to: internal drive, or external?
