Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Aha! Okay, I think I get it. The FX Stack works differently from what I'm used to or expected. The Apply button is actually an animation generator, rather than a modifier. So when I use the multi-plane project as the source for BG/FG layers in the 'in-place cycle' project, Apply FX is rendering diff...

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Thanks, Slow Tiger. No hurry. I probably won't get back to this myself before the weekend. :)

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

I'm not able to test at the moment, but is there a way to 'hide' a layer in the Multiplane interface? I recall seeing an Opacity property for layers--would I use that, or is there a proper visibility switch?

Thanks in advance for any info. I'll try to check it out when I get home later this evening.

- have animated walk in place in one project, and animated multiplane setup in second project - in first project, open FX > Keyframer and choose second project as source - in second project, switch off foreground layers - in first project, apply FX to empty BG layer - in second project, switch off ...

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Hi Fabrice, Could you try again? I replaced the link with a longer version. The original link works here but since the movie has partial privacy settings enabled, I wonder if you need the longer version of the link. This link will probably change in a few weeks when we post Sienna's movie on our web...

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Sienna finished her short film and, as promised, here's a sneak preview for this thread: https://vimeo.com/235299806/5049fa51ca 235299806 Today she's submitting her short to a student arts competition. I'm astonished by how quickly she learned how to use TVPaint, and I can't wait to see what she doe...

Re: Color wheel and palette open at same time?

Ok, thanks for the reply. :)

In the meantime, if anybody else needs this, I'm just dabbing 'swatch' colors in 'palette' layer. This way I can keep the Color Wheel open and not have to switch to sample the color dabs. I just need to be sure I'm back on that layer when adding colors.

Color wheel and palette open at same time?

This is probably a basic question (I'm still fairly new to TVPaint) but is it possible to open the color wheel and the color swatch palette at the same time? Unless I'm missing something (very possible,) it seems like I can only display one or the other at a time. I thought perhaps I could open two ...

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Thank you, Elodie! I'll be sure to check out your videos tomorrow.

Sienna got her animations completed. Tomorrow we're finishing the soundFX and then she's working on the music score. It's looking very cute...but then I'm biased. :D

I'll post a link when she's finished with her project.

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Thanks, Nathan! I'll let Sienna know you wrote that. This is her first big TVPaint project and she's very excited about it. Sienna has been animating since she was six- or seven-years-old, mostly on iPad. Here's what she created last year for the same school competition: http://littlegreendog.com/20...

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Thanks for the tip Slowtiger! That may be what I'm looking for.

Right now we're busy in the middle of her project and she's hoping to finish her character animations this afternoon.

I'll try your technique as soon as I have some time for myself again. :)

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Oh, it just occurred to me that, alternatively, I can render the animated multiplane environment in two passes (FG and BG), and then import those as regular layers in her original cheetah animation project. A little clunky but doable. (Actually, we already started down the AE path but I'm still thin...

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Hey, thanks for the helpful reply!

I think we'll do it in AE then because we need to get it done quickly, but I'll definitely check out your script once the dust settles. (Actually, I'm already looking at that thread.) :)

Re: Lock Layer to Camera?

Or, I suppose, I could leave the camera and cheetah in place, and animate the five environment layers together. But if I do that, is there a way to link all five layers so only one item needs to be animated? For example, in a 3D or compositing program, I'd simply parent all the environment layers to...

Lock Layer to Camera?

Hi, I'm helping my 10-year-old daughter Sienna with an animation she's making for a school project. Today she animated a run cycle for a cheetah and she wishes to insert it in a multi-plane environment. I'm fairly new to TVPaint myself and I wasn't sure how to go about it, so I put together a test s...
