unwanted transparency

Post by ubik » 19 Dec 2019, 15:12

Hello everyone,

I have an animation of a character that I painted in watercolor.
The problem is that it remains transparent on the decor.
How can I "opacify" all of the animation at once?

Thank you

PS: it is produced in a standard version. Possible access to a Pro.

Set the background to white (bottom left corner). And don't forget to switch background on while exporting.

Good evening slowtiger,
thank you but no that's not the problem.
It is the character painted in watercolor remains with transparency when we place it in the decor ...
How can I fill the blank character on all the animation most easily?
With a CTG?

You need a solid 100% white underpainting. It's best done with a fill with the line art as souce ("above").

Easiest; I think you could multiply his colour layer a few times, but the watercolour effect would be lost. The other way would be to get a filled white layer and turn the mask on for the water colour layer. Then clear the white layer with that mask on. Then if you need that layer more dense you can multiply that a few times too.

Otherwise you should make a white matte by hand to put under the colour layer.

color automation tip.


a quick filling of a lineanimation can also be achieved by following these steps:

-color the whole frame white on a separate layer below your linedrawings
-stretch out that layer under your all the animation frames
-with the paint bucket tool set to erase and its source set to above, erase the first frame, click out side the character (in a far corner of your project)
-undo
-select all frames
-enter

Now tvpaint will repeat the erase, while looking above, for all frames and your character will be colored white on all frames.
Depending on the details you will still need to manually clear some enclosed areas but its much faster than doing it all by hand.
