Storyboards in TVP ver. 9.5

Post by MartindeMadrid » 19 Oct 2019, 23:41

I work on an old Pro version 9.5 of TVPaint and noticed when I saved (or maybe when I searched for the file?) the storyboard I made as a ".tvpp" file, the software mentioned the format ".tvps", a format for storyboards. However, I cannot find anything in the manual or on this board regarding this. Is this a "real thing"? If it is, how do I find out more about it? I am a professional artist who has done a wee bit of film work, including a storyboard for an indie project (on TB Storyboard). I LOVE my TVPaint, want to upgrade, and really want to use it for storyboarding. If my version has a storyboarding format/function I would use it!

BTW the detailed and patient way you answer queries is just another example of the quality of people you have working for you. I used to be a Phone Support Technician in Silicon Valley in the day, and I am awed by your support team! Need an experienced support person? Seriously!

Thank you in advance.

Hello Martin,

I think that "tvps" is probably a typo from an old version.
TVPaint files are saved in the "tvpp" format (TVPaint Project) since TVPaint 9.5, when we revamped the "Project" tab to become a Storyboard management tool.
A "tvpp" file has all clips (storyboard) in it, whereas the old "tvp" file (pre 9.5) just had one clip.

So, if you have a Pro version of the software, you have access to the Storyboard tools :) (feel free to read the Storyboard chapter in the online doc, by going here)

I use the storyboard a lot, it's got a great workflow from storyboard through animatic and to animation.
