Re: Camera view isn't showing during playback.

I probably would have been checking it out for 20 minutes before realizing it was unplugged.

Camera view isn't showing during playback.

I'm trying to set up a camera move (for the first time), and am having problems. I clicked on the camera icon, and then set my start and stop camera frames in my project window. I opened the Time Profile and set the spline to start and end the move on particular frames. When I then scroll across the...

Re: Replacing the black areas of hi-con matte with a color?

Peter & Slowtiger, You're absolutely right! I was just going back and re-reading some instructions from 2014 that I'd copied from Paul Fierlinger. As it turns out, he described this same process to globally reposition a character's walk so that the end of his first two steps could hook up with his n...

Re: Replacing the black areas of hi-con matte with a color?

That worked! I was leaving out the "hit enter/reapply" part.
This is one of those TVP procedures that seems so non-intuitive. I'll definitely need to keep a copy of your instructions for future use because I'll never remember this one!

Thanks again Slowtiger!

Re: Replacing the black areas of hi-con matte with a color?

Thanks Slowtiger, but I'm not quite following this.
I've clicked on the "preserve transparency" button on the hi-con matte layer. Created a colored rectangle and dragged that layer on top of the matte layer.
But then when you write "Undo", what action do I undo. And by "re-apply", what do I re-apply?

Replacing the black areas of hi-con matte with a color?

I have a black & white hi-con matte that I've pulled from a short live action clip of water ripples. I want to color the black areas
How does one replace the black areas of a hi-con matte with a chosen color?

Re: Pulling a hi-con matte from live action?

Amazing! It looks like a totally different chunk of footage.

Thanks for this D.T.!

Re: Pulling a hi-con matte from live action?

That looks great D.T.!
I've been looking for footage of water ripples and came up with something that doesn't look as good as yours.
Could I possibly use yours? Or could you steer me to where I can find it?

Pulling a hi-con matte from live action?

I have a 4 second live action clip of ripple reflections on water that I'm considering rotoscoping, but would love another solution. Is there a way to take this live action clip into TVPaint and pull difference mattes of the frames, so that I end up with a hi-con matte of the ripples? Can TVPaint do...

Re: Window stuck under application frame

Unfortunately, while trying a number of different things to fix the problem, somewhere in the process I noticed the interface had un-stuck itself. The problem now is that I don't know what fixed it. If this happens again, I will try the solution you've described with the Alt key and see if that does...

Shortcut for adding 1 instance BEFORE current frame?

From looking back at the release notes for version 11.0.3, it looks as though there should be a command for adding 1 instance before the current frame. But in looking through the keyboard shortcuts for the Handy Custom Panel, all I am finding is a command for adding 1 instance AFTER the current fram...
