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: TVPaint Drawing random straight lines at beginning of stroke.

Try going into Wacom Tablet Properties and selecting your pen, find Tip Double Click Distance and turn it off. https://i.imgur.com/0hMsinP.jpg You can also try disabling Press and hold in Windows Flicks panel.

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 ...

Re: New software: Storyboarder

@charlesforman This looks neat. But since you asked for feedback... Could you think about reworking the page to remove the derogatory remarks against Sony and tone down the language? Sony sponsors a lot of live action, animation and video game work and make a lot of great content, the remark seems h...

Re: Opentoonz seems to be cleaning itself up.

What studios ? Most studios I visited in Japan still animate on paper, then use a bunch of software like Retas or Sai for the painting process (when obviously they don't use TVPaint for these both tasks). CELSYS specifically list Kamikaze Douga, Asahi Production and Production I.G . Studio Colorido...

Re: Opentoonz seems to be cleaning itself up.

Agree with the points @neonnoodle is making, but I'd point out in Japan they're using Clip Studio Paint for the drawing process , so whether OpenToonz is any good in that regard won't matter. In regards to the tools don't matter remark, I don't agree. I think it's actually more difficult for a begin...

Naming Conventions and File Structure for 2D Animation?

For whatever reason different people use different naming conventions as does different industries and as personal as a file structure can be I'd be really interested in hearing how others manage their projects. How would you go about organizing your short film, series or feature in regards to termi...

Re: TVPaint and Cintiq 24 HD touch rings?

Have you tried setting the touch ring to scroll ? You can change the TVP shortcuts to something else, for example ctrl+shit+[ (decrease) and ctrl+shift+] (increase) and set that as a keystroke to the touch ring. http://i.imgur.com/4rwwBln.png For rotate, set a modifier to one of the ExpressKeys for ...

Re: CTG or paint bucket?

Is it possible to fill an area so that it has a soft edge for part of it, or does this just have to be done by hand? Here's what I am after where the arm connects to the body. Tricky! I'd perhaps do it like this but there must be a much easier way to do it, since I'm a cel shade man it's just a sho...
