Linux: Custom stylus buttons not working when set by xsetwacom

OS: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit Hardware: Lenovo X200T TabletPC (Wacom penabled) TVPaint Pro 11.0.6 64-bit The "Wacom tablet" control panel in Ubuntu doesn't allow you to map the side switches of the tablet pen to keystrokes. I have an old Axiotron Modbook stylus with dual side-switches, and like to mak...

Re: Various stuff made with TVPaint

Benjamin, this example is very interesting to me! I am always recommending TVPaint to other animators, but most of the examples of TVP at its best are more "sketchy." The hand-drawn look makes the most of what TVP has to offer. For more slick, stylized, and graphical designs, I often think of animat...

New software: Storyboarder

For a while I have been following the progress of Charles Forman's application "Storyboard Fountain." It looks like the software has been renamed Storyboarder and is now free for Windows, Mac and Linux! https://wonderunit.com/storyboarder/ It's based on Pitch Docter, Pixar's in-house animatic tool, ...

Re: Disney's Meander software

I agree with you, schwarzgrau. Knowing nothing much about the pipelines for CG films (or professional studio films, aside from what I've been able to glean from books), I wonder how much of these technologies are based on the goal of producing hand-drawn looks without worrying about hiring people wh...

Re: A Question about Tablet PC, Android and Nomad

I'm quite tempted to investigate the NEW Surface Pro systems that have been released in 2017. One reason is that the new stylus now supports tilt! (I am crazy about this, I care far more about it than is probably reasonable. :P ) They have changed the stylus system so many times over the years that ...

Features for the Export Menu

- It would be nice to limit the export range to image mark sets. I was trying to export JUST my keys and breakdowns earlier and found it difficult to do so. - Likewise, it would be cool to have some variable syntax in the file naming for export. So instead of having JUST (filename-001.png) and so on...

Re: Are timing charts still relevant?

One other thing -- here is a video of Toniko Pantoja doing some inbetweening. In this video, he shows in great detail how his planning thought process develops into the charts he uses to inbetween. It's a long video but I learned a great deal from it:

Re: Are timing charts still relevant?

Timing charts can be VERY useful for planning, particularly where inbetweening is concerned. There is a clip of Eric Goldberg talking about how the chart, for him, is partly about knowing which order to make the drawings. If you know you're going to be slowing in to your next extreme, the primary br...

Re: Traditional animation and 2d computer animation: Should there be a difference?

I'm also not interested in the topic, but who cares? But I don't understand why neonnoodle, slowtiger (in the other thread) and Elodie post her just to say that they don't care or even that two or three threads with some topic, which don't interest you is already annoying. These are topics which se...

Re: Traditional animation and 2d computer animation: Should there be a difference?

I don't understand these continual threads about animation software, the naming of the software, the terminology, the feature sets, even the nationality of the software! Most of the folks using TVP are working to get things done and have less interest in these abstract philosophical discussions. It ...

Re: I miss you, TVPaint! But wow is the iPad Pro great...

I'm intrigued by the forthcoming Samsung Book, which looks like the only Windows tablet other than the Wacom Mobile Studio Pro to have a pen that supports tilt... Perhaps it will be more affordable than the MSP.

Re: I miss you, TVPaint! But wow is the iPad Pro great...

New generation of Cinitq Pro (13 and 16) will only have one usb-c cable with a small adapter : a usb connection for the computer and another one for the power. It's very neat. Regarding the iPad Pro, I dislike : - the shinnig screen : I prefer the matte screen of the Cintiq - the way you charge the...

"Dot" brush mode

Does anyone use this? If I want a single stamp I just tap once with a stylus or click the mouse. But as a standalone mode for the brush tool it's an annoyance to me.

Re: I miss you, TVPaint! But wow is the iPad Pro great...

Yes, portability is a big bonus. Also, I am on Windows/Linux at the office so my option is Duet Display, which does not have wireless capacity. The performance of Duet is slower and worse than simply using the Cintiq which is already hooked up. :| If I were already a MacBook type person, you can bet...

I miss you, TVPaint! But wow is the iPad Pro great...

Happy new year, TVPaint pals. It's been quite some time since I did any animating in TVPaint because I acquired an iPad Pro about six months ago. Although it's obviously not the full-fledged computer that it could be, the experience of drawing on it with the Apple stylus is VASTLY superior to any ot...
