Export mirrored?

Post by visuallyjamie » 28 Aug 2020, 23:06

Hi, I noticed when I go to export my animation that the program has mirrored the animation instead of the way that I originally drew it. Does anyone know why this happens?

I'm guessing you drew while you were in flipped (mirrored) mode.
you can always check and see if that is the case by looking at the navigator.

maybe you accidentally hit the "[" or "]" keys. (function is called "zoom:flip...")
which controls wether tvpaint displays the project to the user "as is" or mirrored.

come time to export, tvpaint will export the true orientation regardless of how the zoom:flip is set
