Did you try te re-export from TVPaint, or did you try to import the same export as before the update to Yosemite?

And what version of the script do you use, the one from the link in the first post of this topic, or the recently updated one I've posted a few days ago?
Thanks for the quick response!

It does export the project I've exported before.
But it did not export my new project or even the standard one-layer / one-frame new project.
I've tried both versions of the script: namely 1.0.3 and 1.0.4

However I've tried renaming my layers and it worked!
I'd named the layers like this "100_shadow" and changed it into "Shadow_100" and now it works!
So maybe a tip for naming your layers: don't start with numbers :)
Thanks again for your help!

Hi there,

Regarding the After-Effect export, I just wanted to inform you that after receiving requests from various clients a few months ago, we developed our own code and scripts.
We included a lot of features like BG colors, blend modes, instances timings, camera movements, post behaviors...
but at this time, we were unaware that Duduf was still improving his work.

You should enjoy this new export method in the v11.5, under the "Clip structure" Export tab.

Hi everyone,

I'm Clément, i work as a full-time developer at TVPaint. I'm the one who made the latest Import script for After-Effect Fabrice was talking about.
You will be able to try it soon in the next release, so it will be before the version 11.5 :) (to be clear, it will be in the next 11.0.x)
I welcome any suggestion you may have about the script, so do not hesitate.
Clement Berthaud, Software Developer, TVPaint Team

I have made to scripts.

One for TVPaint to Export the current clips, in Layers each instance as single

And one script for Adobe After Effects for importing the PNGsand keep the different layers.

Also, I have one more question, if you don't mind:

Looking for a new home for my family, I have three children and a wife, we need a small but cozy house, preferably close to good transport links. Recently I found this article about the highlands of east hill, you can read it here www.highlandsvernon.com. I would like to hear everyone's opinion on this project. Thank you in advance.

Hi there!

I installed the scripts in both TVpaint (9.5.3 and ) and AE (CS6). I don't get the export from TVpaint done.
When I hit the "Export AFX" button in TVpaint, it says "Please save TVP project to export clip to After Effects".

Image

I tried saving via File>Export Clip and File>Save Project, which creates a .tvp- or .tvpp-file. But no PNGs, no clipinfo.txt file.

Can you help me? What's my mistake?

You should update your TVPaint version first.
Go to the Help main menu, then click on Check for updates. Your browser will open and should let you download the last v9 version :)

Hey guys, Hi Clement,

I tried sending you a DM a while back but it seems it never left my outbox. Strange.

Very old topic but just thought I'd mention that I found (I think?) a mistake in the Json script that's importing TVpaint files in AE that you wrote -
Line 633, the comp duration is calculated as follows:

var compDuration = parseFloat(compImageCount) / parseFloat(24.000038);

but the comp duration depends on the framerate (which is exposed earlier in the script)
var compFramerate = ReadFloatFromData( dataTree, "project.clip.framerate", 24.0 );


Currently, if your framerate isn't 24fps, the duration of the comp created by the JSON script won't be correct. This variable should be calculated as follows:
var compDuration = (parseFloat(compImageCount)/parseFloat(compFramerate))


Let me know if I'm mistaken!

G.

Hi!

Thank you for noticing this, it seems to be a mistake indeed! We're going to run some tests with this modification :)

Clément doesn't work here anymore by the way.
