Re: Merging Blending Modes

Agreed!
When using a mix of different blend modes, shouldn't "as seen" be the most common intent for a merge?

Non-adjacent "instance of" and "instance with"

I have an idea that might need a graphical demonstration (which I'll provide if no one can understand what I'm getting at)-- A layer could be identified as an "instance of" or an "instance with" another layer (of the same length, unless there was some kind of inter-/extrapolation). "Instance Of" wou...

Re: Digital Rulers & Guides

I think this is all a great idea. But how can we talk about stencils, guides, and rulers without referring to ArtRage, which clearly demonstrates that Ambient Design has done some research into ease-of-use? Those stencils, rulers, and guides are very intuitive and simple, with only one stylus. But I...

Re: Tablet PC Recommendations

I, like tonydusko, use the HP tc4400. It's cheap and fast, has no optical drive, a 1024x768 screen, no firewire (but I got a pcmcia firewire port for 18 dollars here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=103&cp_id=10312&cs_id=1031202&p_id=1445&seq=1&format=2 ).

TVPaint 9 Issue?

I've been playing with TVPaint almost continually since the demo became available for download. The Stroke Animator thing is amazing. But now it's "locked" and I can't draw a smooth line unless I have CTRL held down and I'm on a one-frame layer. Otherwise, I can either not hold control, and get a do...

Re: Wondering about animation styles

Watch out for becoming an ornamentalist. That's going to bog you down and you do have a strong tendency to decorate what's on your paper. You must switch your aesthetics to speed and economy of work. Start with something you know well, like yourself and your room. Look around and then turn to your ...

Re: Overwhelmed but want to learn

Paul, I was interested in your shortcuts and visited your web site. YOU MADE TEENY LITTLE SUPER GUY! Sorry to take this thread off track but I'm sure no one minds learning (or re-acknowledging) that. I'm a huge fan of your work. I knew that you were an animator of renown, but could not have anticipa...

Re: A strange problem with FX Stack Previews

Okay, thanks to the helpful explanation from Eric, I figured out what I was doing wrong. The detection range for the Wacom is higher than I thought. I am a fool. If I lift the pen more than 1/2" off the tablet, it updates. Would it be difficult to change this so that the display can (optionally?) up...

Re: A strange problem with FX Stack Previews

Eric, I'm sorry to report that this doesn't change anything either. If I recall correctly, something changed in 8.5 that requires the Intuos3 pen to be in contact with the tablet surface in order to register a right-click. It wasn't like that before 8.5, and it isn't like that on the TabletPC. Is th...

Re: Mirage Tutorials, Downloads and Plugins

Good idea, David Nethery. The Wayback Machine does indeed yield results. The following looked interesting to me; maybe some folks who remember useful threads from the Mirage forum can dig them up and post them here.

Re: A strange problem with FX Stack Previews

.5 seconds huh? That's definitely not happening on the desktop. I'm not sure I understand what devices qualify as special (crawling under the desk to have a look at the back of the computer). The only things I have attached are a USB scanner, printer and tablet. just a side question - Are there some...

Re: A strange problem with FX Stack Previews

Nope, that's not it. Preview setting is set to "Full." I tried toggling through all of them, and it didn't change anything. The preview usually updates eventually, after about 10 seconds. But if I click the playhead, it updates instantly. Urgh. My intuition is that it's some messed up display-relate...

A strange problem with FX Stack Previews

I have a problem on my WinXP desktop running TVP Standard 8.6: The preview display does not update when I make changes to FX Stack items (such as a blur direction) until I click the playhead on the layers panel. It's really a pain when I am using tweak-intensive FX items like the wrapping grid. The ...
