A way to change the position of drawing?

Post by LizardLaw974 » 18 Mar 2017, 20:05

I'm a student using TVPaint 11 at my school, on a Cintiq 22HD and a MAC with OS X El Capitan. I've been creating an animatic in TVPaint, and I went through the whole thing, and the position of one of the characters I keyed out is off, and I want to change where on the project I can place him. Unfortunately, the only method I am aware of is cutting it out as an AniBrush, and while I can use that, placing it back in the position I want makes the keys jittery since I can't place all keys in the same exact position (unless I'm incredibly accurate and that has never happened no matter how many times I tried). I want to try to make it happen without the character's placement jittery or having to redraw all of my work, so is there any other way that I am unaware about?

I'm sorry if this has been discussed somewhere before, I've been looking all through the forums and I wasn't able to find anything in terms of an answer for this.

The Panning Tool (default shortcut P) is your friend.

Select tool. Grab and drag drawing to desired position in one go. Undo. Select all frames. Redo.

If you need to adjust the position in more than one step, use the Transform Tool (Ctrl T) instead. Adjust, return, undo, select frames, redo, return.
