additional option in modify project

Since Pjotr asked about it:
what about adding a frame range in the modify project panel so we can extract parts into new projects?
Or maybe, for increased speed, something like "cut up project by bookmarks", making each bookmark the first frame of a new project?

Re: Workflow question for a short

You should definitely split your profect into separate scenes. Not only gets navigating a lot easier, you also minimize the risk of data loss (which thankfully only can happen when your comuter loses power during saving a file). Since you already started to animate, you need to cut up your layers at...

Re: Annie Awards 45th

And TVP really is in good company there. The Annie website is a mess, they seem to not even have a complete archive of their own awards, but I could spot Toonboom (booh!), Maya, Flash (2008), besides the more esoteric in-house software packages of the big studios.

Re: Dissolving between instances

In your case you first need to isolate the 2 frames you want to dissolve from the 99 exposures. Just copy them into a new layer, which now should consist of only 2 frames, and proceed as I wrote to stretch this to the desired length of dissolve. (I don't know your workflow habits, but I permanently ...

Re: Dissolving between instances

There are several ways to do this, I use this: - have a layer of several frames - grab handle at the right and pull until it's a multiple of the original frame count - in the dialogue, I check interpolate and click stretch. To be sure to have the original frames untouched somewhere, I extend their e...

Re: MOTION KEYFRAMER DESIGN MENY

No, you're not alone, the Keyframer is a pretty complex thing, although its basics are explained in the manual. I agree that the rotation axis names (XYZ) should be used instead of (or additionlly to) bank, head, and pitch , as these names are totally unknown to non-native speakers of english (or pi...

Re: Particle Tutorials

That effect is so short, I wouldn't even open the FX panel for it but animate it by hand.

There is a bunch of particle FX in the bin for this FX, have you seen them? Usually I load one of them as a starting point and tweak it to my needs.

Re: $230 To turn my 7 page colored original comic book into a 1 minute action anime

Obviously you have no idea of how much work animation actually is, and how much money the time of an artist is worth. I'd say 2.500 $ is the smallest amount any serious animator would call for this job.

So what? I still remember my FreeHand shortcuts from 1994, and how to load a 35 mm camera!

Re: Scaling drawings unproportionally?

Try using the Warp tool instead, grab the handle in the middle of a side.

Re: Opentoonz seems to be cleaning itself up.

I really don't believe it's just this pencil (and the Palomino is just a reissue of the original Blackwing Warrior, which I know and still have a package of), other pencils are good enough as well for the job, it just takes the insight to evaluate one's tools and maybe research for alternatives.

Re: Opentoonz seems to be cleaning itself up.

Exactly my thoughts when that whole thing started: it was a scan software, not a drawing software. What did those people expect? OTOH I was asked how much money one has to spend for hard- and software to be able to produce animation independently. This was a much more legitimate request, and I did m...

Re: Layer plane tests

I realised there is an old trick to this: moving clouds and plane horizontal only, but give the plane a very small repetitive vertical movement (up down up down). I just remembered old Hannah-Barbera procuctions where they did this all the time (like Jetsons).
