Re: DuiO 2

I wonder how they import from TVPaint, if they where able to reverse engineer the .tvpp format they are really good develooppers :)

Re: Main menu > View > Display with aspect ratio: what is it?

Do you remember CRT TVs ? On those, pixels weren't square, and "Display with Aspect Ratio" simulates this. I guess today you can safely ignore it (leave it unticked), unless you make your animation specifically for these old devices/video formats (PAL & NTSC) To see it's effect, you can create an NT...

Re: Creating Varied Transparency Mask

Yes it can :)

You have to activate "Stencil" on the gray-level layer, and then it will only draw (in any layer) where there is already opacity in this layer.

Re: Sélectionner une texture

Il s'agit juste de l'affichage/preview du papier/texture. Dès la selection d'un outil qui ne l'utilise pas ça disparait, le projet n'est pas modifié. Ceci peut être activé/désactivé ds le menu "Affichage" (je suppose, je n'utilise que la version en anglais, "Display") en bas à droite de la vue du pr...

Re: RAM usage while exporting

Speed also depends on the export format and settings. For instance, PNG with a compression setting of 10 is *really* slow, with the compression at 5 it goes twice as fast with maybe a 10% increase of file size... Do you export as images or video ? As each image is exported independently (vs. a video...

Re: New Computer, Can't Download TVPaint

Your lucky because you're on a mac :) (That is, if you still have access to your old mac...) You can just copy TVPaint over to the new one. Either over the network, a USB stick, some cloud storage (or even email if that's the only way...) Our web hosting has become less reliable and we are looking f...

There you'll be able to download the installers for the version you purchased.
You can even do it right now, no need to wait for the dongle to arrive.

Re: What is the best size for projects?

If you feel adventurous, there is a file called pagesize.conf somewhere in your TVPA installation (exact place depends on your OS),
which contains the defaults that appear in the popup.
It is just a text file.

Re: Need a script to Resize Multiplane Camera project

Hi David, I think exporting the FX Stack, running some external script (in some real programming language like python, not george !) to resize/scale the paths, and reimporting the FX Stack is the only way to do it. The file format of '.bin' files is pure text, it is not documented, but still, should...

Re: Stroke Animation option

You have to use the 'Dot' shape instead of 'Stroke'.
