Re: Pipeline suggestions

Slowtiger, Well, if you have any questions about PS then feel free to ask, I use it daily and know a few tricks. For instance, you can change how brushes are viewed in the palette simply by clicking on the palette options (the three horizontal lines in the top right) and selecting either Large Thumb...

Re: Pipeline suggestions

Thank you all for I have seen the error of my ways. I made a custom brush today and played with the stamp brush thingy. I think I've got a handle on how the brushes work now. Still, the Alpha Luma thing isn't intuitive at all. I would've never thought of that unless I was just mussing about and clic...

Re: Pipeline suggestions

Elodie, Thank you for the reply, but I ask to not be patronized, please. I use Photoshop, as does MANY, for illustration (it's the industry standard in the concept art field) and disparaging it because it is, on paper, a photo editing software, is quite a bit disingenuous as it has more than proven ...

Re: Pipeline suggestions

Thanks, Fabrice, for your reply. I don't like that there is no "magic wand". I don't like the way that you size the brushes. I don't like the way you sample colors. I don't like the color picker. I don't like how complicated it is to duplicate something. I tried using the painting tools and found th...

Re: Pipeline suggestions

Thanks for the reply, D.T., My main reason for the Photoshop part is that I really do not like the painting tools in TVPaint, to be quite honest. I'm interested in being able to utilize Photoshop's editing powers and its Timeline, which I'll then use in After Effects as sequenced layers (that's what...

Pipeline suggestions

Hello all,

I'm looking for some help in creating a streamlined pipeline involving creating line art and clean up in TVP, exporting to Photoshop for coloring, and finally to After Effects for sequencing and post-fx. Does anyone else use a pipeline similar to this? Let's discuss. Thanks!

Re: Eraser size

Thanks, Fabrice. I know that much. I have my mouse wheel on my Nostromo set up to size up/down the brush, so I have the same problem with using the Z shortcut. Say I have a 2.0 size brush set up (I have it in the bin) and I need to erase a lot of skinny chicken scratch rough lines out, if I make the...

Eraser size

I'm kind of embarrassed to even ask this, but I don't use TVPaint that often (I mostly work in Photoshop and After Effects), so everytime I go back to it I'm kind of relearning it. My question is is there a way to have the eraser at different size than the current brush I'm using? I have a Nostromo ...

Re: 日本語アニメ制作参考書情報

I totally agree. The "transform" in the Bay films is more like a spilling of parts all over the place, it just looks so...fake, like some after effects trick. But then again, we don't have very many Shoji Kawamori's in the U.S., if any. That Macross Zero clip is exactly what I'm talking about. I fee...

Re: 日本語アニメ制作参考書情報

This should be fun. I don't mind mecha being done in CG, my problem comes in the glaring difference in frame rate of the animation. For instance most of the hand drawn stuff will be done on 2's or 3's, but then here comes the CG stuff zipping around fluidly on 1's. My gripe is that they don't look l...

Re: "memory"

The most frustrating thing about finding work in the U.S. is that mouth animation is very much something that is sought after. "Mickey Mousing" (the practice of syncing movement to music, popular in the 40's & 50's) is derided as anachronistic and cliche but for some reason exaggerated mouth movemen...

Re: "memory"

I guess I can understand the misplaced hatred for characters with large eyes. I despise the ridiculous focus on mouth animation in western animation and the over animated gesturing in most Disney work.
