Not sure if this thread is dead but I have an idea about funding TVpaint tutorials, Kickstart. This could be the prefect solution to the funding of a tutorial series. The minimum buy in would be the cost of the Blu-ray series, lets say $40 to $60 dollars.

This does seem to be a dead end. There has been no attempt except in lip service to alievate this sparcety of tutorials. Perhaps as time passes this will all be a moot question........................

What exactly are users looking for in the way of Tutorials? My Final Independent Animation Training covers a lot of aspects of using TVP to create your own animation. As mentioned elsewhere, my TVPaint Particle Magic has hours of video just on the particle system. From what I have seen, the tutorials right here on this site cover a lot as well. If I had a better idea what users desire to see, I'd be happy to create more TVP tutorials.

artfx and all,
I purchased two videos from your series and found them beautifully done and with plenty of info. I would like to have the tvP manual with each chapter done with a small/short video to illustrate the concept of the chapter. It is a big request, just my take on my own needs.
(Terrance, how do I contact you about an expired download?)

That's a lot of video to produce, no question about that! IMHO, you'll learn more just by using the software, trying stuff out and asking questions when you get stuck.

I sent you an email about the download. As far as the manual, I actually haven't looked at it in ages. :D If there is enough need for a video on "the basics" I would be glad to do one, but again, there are a lot of tutorials right here on this site, if you click this button:

I haven't watched them all, but those I have seen are very well done and, I think, cover a lot of ground to get users up and running with TVPaint.

I'd be curious to know if users are more interested in tutorials that are "project based", meaning it shows how to achieve a certain image, scene or animation, or those that are "tool based", meaning it gives a visual explanation of the various tools and what they do. I personally think project based tutorials are more useful. For example, you have a character turn around and say something, and the tutorial would show and explain all the tools and steps to get from zero to that completed scene.

Any thoughts?

terrance, and all
I am a 70 yr old living on a very limited budget. Every penny available I spend on art related materials. I have no desire to become rich or famous through my art. Very seldom do I allow people to see my work due to my lack of money for presentation ( Framing, matting,etc.) tvPaint allows me to explore and experiment but now I would like to learn to achieve results using this program, the nuts and bolts,as it were. artfx provides great training but I can't afford it at this point in time. My physical health is another factor due to diabetes. I have limited attention span. This is why I prefer the tutorials done on video. Both tools and project based tuts are my preference. I also feel there are others in my boat as well.........The forum is one of the best I have experienced. Thanks for allowing me the space to cry in my beer.
