Re: Crash

Okay, I've made a discovery which means that all I need is for TVPaint to start working again. It turns out that the reason for my suddenly full hard disk is that for some reason my latest backups (which I thought had silently failed) were being made inside my animation folders, and not to the exter...

Re: Crash

Oh dear oh dear oh dear. I had two files open actually, my last, complicated, scene. They're over 3GB each. I can't get TVPaint to open in any way - by opening an existing (potentially corrupted) file, or an older, more innocent one, or just clicking on the application. It won't do any of it.

Re: Crash

Yes, hard disk space. I've just got one volume, 2TB, all full. Have got external hard drives (also 2TB), am going to have to shift everything over to them even though I'd hoped to do that afterwards and not during the project. Am crunching away at that as we speak. However, I'm worried that it seems...

Re: Crash

Running MacOS 10.13.6 on an iMac Retina 5K, 2017
Processor 4,2 GHz Intel Core i7

I have restarted. Reinstalled the software. Removed the config file. Running out of ideas.

Crash

I am literally on my last clip of the film. I had hoped to finish today. My Mac ran out of space and TVPaint crashed. I've cleared some space, but now it crashes on startup every time. Trying not to panic.

feathered edge

I'm getting so close to finishing my 5-minute epic! I'm including imported video in my last shot, but want to feather the edges to blend it seamlessly into my drawn animation. I can think of lots of ways but don't know how to execute them in TVPaint. Eg: can I feather a freehand selection? Can I app...

Re: deleted colour palette

No, not there. But there's a strange phenomenon. I go to my backup drive (which sadly has a connection I can't use on any other computer), and find the backed up application itself, show package content to see the hidden files, and in every single case it says the files were last modified at 10.02 t...

Re: deleted colour palette

I found config.ini from yesterday's backup, and replaced my current one with it. Then opened TVPaint, but the palette didn't reappear.

Re: deleted colour palette

hmm, I have a mac, but given that the palette opened automatically every time I used the software, *surely* it must be saved in a file like that somewhere in my backups (of the whole mac).

Re: deleted colour palette

ok, thanks, one of those major kicking myself experiences. I was using the watercolour brush so I'm not sure I can just use the colour picker to match the colours. But it's not the end of the world.

It was surprisingly easy to lose.

deleted colour palette

I'm in one of those panic situations... I've been using a colour palette, which if I saved, it was in the early days of the project and would be pretty useless, and I just accidentally deleted it instead of a colour from it. Edit undo doesn't bring it back. I have a million backups of the project bu...

acceleration with motion keyframer

Hi everybody I hope this isn't a really basic question. I have an eagle flying from the distance towards and past the "camera", so obviously it should get bigger as it comes closer. What I can't figure out is how to make the pace of change accelerate as it comes closer. The spline option always seem...
