Thank you @TVPaintDev for the quick demo for @cartoonbrew - love the 2d/3d cross-over work being done in the tool #annecyfestival

By "2D/3D crossover work" - what is he referring to?

There is a picture of a TV Paint interface on a Cintiq. He is drawing on a picture of a Star Wars space ships...

Can anyone explain what is going on? A new TVP feature, perhaps?

Thanks
Gochris

I think it is referring to the work of Paul Johnson.

See here: https://www.tvpaint.com/v2/content/arti ... ighter.php

Paul's method of animating the spaceships is to model them as simple 3D shapes in Cinema 4D. The 3D shots are then imported into TVPaint as image sequences and Paul draws over them frame by frame . Lines, colors, shadows and highlights are added as usual in TVPaint.
