Hi all,
We are proud to present you our new update. This 8.5 update is totally free for all TVP Animation and TVP Animation Pro owners.
For the moment only the trial versions are available. The commercial version won't be available before Wednesday, May 30th 2007.

This update contains a lot of improvements that you can see on this special page.
Now you are able to update the software by one simple clic into the Main menu.
A powerful new layer engine for timing as been implemented but I let you try it and all the new features. Download the trial here.

For this special event, we have also released a new website. It will allow you to update your version by filling in a small form also on next Wednesday. Stay tuned :)


Install as Modify or Repair?

Should current TVPaint users install the demo as a "modify" or "repair" installation? Will I lose all my custom brushes and all that stuff? It doesn't give me the option to install it to a new directory.

Hi David,
When uninstalling a TVP Animation, the installer does not delete user files (like the most part of software. So your personal config won't be deleted if you uninstall TVP Animation 8.1 and you install TVP Animation 8.5.
If you have created some action button on the "Tool Bin" custom panel you should export it cause it will be deleted at the next reset of the config (reset button is on the startup panel).

in the improvements list of your "special page", you could add, in the Miscellaneous chapter,
the ability to straightforwardly create/add a new paper from the project's display,
(Right-Click in the Paper panel).

TVP Animation 8.5 and TVP Animation Pro 8.5 have the new instance engine.
TVP Animation contains all tools and effects for animate your drawings.
TVP Animation Pro contains all features of TVP Animation plus a XSheet System and a Project Management System plus all video effects and some plug-ins (like the Video Canon one).
