apply fx on pingpong

Hello, I hope someone's there today! I have a layer with waves going in and out on the shore, using a short sequence set to pingpong, and I want to apply the motion keyframer on top of that. But it's not applying itself to the "imaginary" frames implied by the pingpong, just the first lot. How do re...

Re: Multiplane camera resolution

Yes, the complications of that scare me, being new to the multiplane, so I'm hoping I'll manage it in one go.

Re: Multiplane camera resolution

Thank you very much! It's as I thought then. And it's a very long zoom. I'd better get ready for lots of cups of tea as things render.

Multiplane camera resolution

Hi folks Sorry for another newbie question, you have been very patient with me. I'm doing my first multiplane camera move and have mocked it up with draft scribbles. It's a zoom out from a detail far in the distance to a much wider landscape. So that (non-moving) detail starts full screen even thoug...

Re: Keyframer on several layers

The weirdest thing happened! After applying the effect to all the layers in the group, it spent ages rendering and then there's no move visible - but the wee red squares marking the moves are visible in the final render!!! I think I broke TVPaint. :shock:

Re: Keyframer on several layers

The first solution didn't seem to work - maybe because I created a new layer for it?? The blending modes didn't seem to carry over. I'm trying the second solution with the colour groups now.

Ha ha, really? Honestly, though in NL, I'm not cheating on any assignments! It's been 25 years since I was in college.

Re: Keyframer on several layers

Thank you Peter, that's a brilliant response. I love the two clip idea. Will try it right now.

Keyframer on several layers

Hi folks, I want my rowing boat to move gently with the waves. I’ve recorded a path for the motion keyframer but we’re talking several layers here (boat, occupant, their colours, etc), which I can’t merge because they have different effects (color, burn etc). If I apply the same motion path separate...

In a video editor, like anybody else.
Thanks Slowtiger. Yes, indeed, I wanted to know what "anybody else" does. I'm self-taught and not in touch with other animators so these things are not always obvious to me.

How do you review WIP when it's split into separate projects?

I've now made the first 22 seconds of my 5 minute film, and just as you folks warned, TVPaint is getting sluggish and it's obvious that I need to move on to a new project. So I've set up a new project with a 22-second long blank clip as a placeholder so that my soundtrack will synch up. But I like w...

Re: boiling

Thanks both, that helped me get there. I also hadn't realised that it was counting frames rather than images so I needed to put in a repeat value of 4 to have it switching between 2 images on twos.

boiling

Hi folks - I've searched and failed to find the answer on this one. If my character stops moving but I want some boiling, I just want the last two images to repeat indefinitely. I thought I'd get this by setting the repeat images value and then making the end value loop, but no, it repeats from the ...

Re: Newbie: One-clip project??

Thank you slowtiger, that's a really clear answer. I hadn't thought of file size issues. It'll end up as 5 minutes of frame by frame drawn animation so going by what you're saying I should definitely break it into individual clips. Or wait: you actually mean a separate project for each clip? (Sorry,...
