Re: Can somebody explain how to use Multiplane camera?

At the CTN Animation Expo this past weekend Mark Chong did a great demo at the TVPaint booth on how to set up a multiplane shot (three layers) . I hope Mark may do a video capture of that demo and post it on his YouTube channel at some point. The Multiplane is definitely a function that is easier t...

Is there a way to make the penbrush opacity stay the same ...

Re: Can you do scrolling backgrounds with symbol animation ?

If you would check that right off the bat, you would get the same aspect ratio of your BKG, in other words a long rectangle. You need to make it be the way you want to see the rendered project in the aspect ratio of your "camera's viewfinder". Once checked, whatever you do with the size; make it sm...

Re: Can you do scrolling backgrounds with symbol animation ?

You have "B" selected in the right corner of your project window, which means you have selected both interface options. Keep all your projects as NONE. I forgot how this is done in 9.5 (someone clarify please). In TVP 10 these options don't even exist anymore since they are superfluous for animatio...

Re: Can you do scrolling backgrounds with symbol animation ?

When you get to the KeyFramer panning stage, set your Preview binding box to 16% width x 9% hight and then check the Keep Aspect ratio box above those two values. Now you have your HD camera viewfinder proper ratio with which you can key your pans and zooms within your BKG project. Tip: When you do...

Re: Can you do scrolling backgrounds with symbol animation ?

You can have a loop of 10 or 15 or whatever amount of a single leaf, hand drawn, twirling to the ground and if you draw several of these loops you can place them all over your BG. You can also do it with an anim brush and just click and paste these all over the place. How hard is it to draw that? T...

Re: Can you do scrolling backgrounds with symbol animation ?

Of course it does not work the same as in Flash, this is a different program! However, it's easy to get the same result, or even better. A possible workflow would be: - create a long BG - animate the leaves on that - use this file as source while doing the pan via keyframer. A somewhat equivalent t...
