Re: Kyoto Animation

Absolutely chilling.

There is a fund setup by Sentai Filmworks on GoFundMe if you want to donate something:

Re: Possible to Add A.I. StyleGAN(Generative Adversarial Network) to TVPaint?

[...] It feels like doing traditionally feels finally dead. [...] TVPaint could be left in the dust if it's not researching or experimenting it. I think Disney could be adding it to Meander, and I think there's no way TVPaint can compete against big corporation like Disney in R&D. What problem do y...

Re: Improve Japanese Workflow Autopaint Light and Shadow Areas

Ah, forgive me for assuming about Attack on Titan! I see what you mean about Line Colorize Enhanced. It seems the post has been edited on GitHub and there is a new example posted, the premise now looks a lot simpler, probably worth re-reading. I will post the examples from the GitHub page below in-c...

Improve Japanese Workflow Autopaint Light and Shadow Areas

I was happy when TVPaint released the include borders function and the accompanying effects to help with the PaintMan workflow. There is a discussion at OpenToonz GitHub about automating the painting of the light and shadow fills , not just the lines themselves but the fills , when a default tone is...

Re: Cacani 2d software with automatic inbetweening done right

But by generally established standards it is considered unethical to discuss the workings of other software on the forum of the current software. I understand that references are fair information, but to carry over another software's merits and demerits on this forum just because they have no forum...

Re: Cacani 2d software with automatic inbetweening done right

I still prefer to hand-draw my characters, but for things like fire, smoke, explosions, glimmer effects, plants and props it's sooo good not having to tween that stuff anymore. But why even those elements? Time and money. But with things like that there's almost no way you can tell the difference. ...

Re: Farewell !

This news hasn't gone down well at my office, Elodie and Fabrice were a big part of the reason we adopted TVPaint. Seemed like TVPaint, Wit Studio, Tatsunoko Pro, Signal MD, Studio Colorido, etc. were successfully managing a digital revolution and education programme in Japan, undoubtedly Elodie and...

Re: Cacani 2d software with automatic inbetweening done right

I am not saying that. I am trying to make a point that it makes little sense to animate 2D films in a hand drawn app so that they look as close to 3D animation as current technology will permit. The problem with those YouTube examples is they're done by amateurs, usually titled "test", etc. and oft...

Re: Anti Aliasing in Post

I miss two tools from Retas PaintMan. Color Drag: https://i.imgur.com/1O3x3Yn.gif This tool is similar to a color smudge tool, it picks up whatever color you click on and allows you to drag into only unfilled areas. So if there is many colors with unfilled gaps it allows quick color dragging without...

Re: Anti Aliasing in Post

I think it was mainly so the frames could be stored at a high resolution, if I remember right Studio Ghibli stored them as 5K, 150DPI, TIFF using CCIT Group 4 compression (aliased). Coloring techniques were then made around that workflow, HDD's weren't as cheap back in the day like they are today.

Re: Thundercats Roar

I think it's a clever soundbite that perhaps may mean something a little different depending on the era, but it's really starting to snowball and I'm kind of agreeing with it to be honest. I'm just glad something or someone is finally pointing out how stale, cheap and juvenile (American) animation h...

Re: Opentoonz seems to be cleaning itself up.

Thanks Fabrice, very nice! The multi-color replacer is so good and the freehand shape fill tool was the last missing Retas feature for me. In anime we usually use a color coding process, so hair shadow is magenta (or something else) and skin shadow cyan (or something else), because the cleanup artis...

Re: Opentoonz seems to be cleaning itself up.

I did not mean to give the impression in my earlier post that I think the quality of the tools is totally unimportant [...] I was reacting to UsaMiko's comment [...] The extreme enthusiasm for OpenToonz seemed to me to be mostly related to the association with Studio Ghibli. Oh I see, my bad, it's ...
