MultiText to CutBrush

Post by Svengali » 28 Nov 2018, 23:49

When I do test drawings I sometimes include notes stamped right onto the drawings or onto GIF loop animations which provide information about process or technique.

I happened upon a script from TVPaint that allowed up to 3 lines of text to be added to the notes window on the timeline - a rather useful ability. Maybe a similar method could be useful for adding text notes onto drawn frames. Here is a script I came up with and thought I'd share it...

Three things to know when using the MultiText utility:
1. Each line needs to be completed by pressing ENTER.
2. You should never include double quote marks " as part of any text line , due to parsing limitations.
3. The CutBrush version of the text that results will stamp in whatever APen color you choose (in the example, the APen was set to green).

Below you see the custom panel & button in the attached MultiText to CutBrush.tvpx file. You also see the popup text window where you type in the line or lines of text you want. Finally, you see what the CutBrush version (in green) of the text looks like when stamped. Like any other CutBrush image, the text can now be scaled and rotated.

The script has been updated (once more, 12/04/2018)... below you will find the revised version renamed to MultiText2, ready for download...
