Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

Many of us are seeking to animate 2D characters for use in an interactive environment, (I think). Linear animation for entertainment is a good, but an extremely difficult goal for an individual animator to reach. The Story must be excellent. The pacing must be excellent. The Music and Sound must be ...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

Steve:

You let me know if you do upgrade - and, if so, maybe there will be the appearance of a few more Moho 12 videos from a certain source.

You could also, if you do upgrade, make a list of things you would like to see demonstrated.

Re: Pin Bones not working

Gaucho: Perhaps you could make a "step-by-step" list of what you did to place your Pin Bones, like this . . . 1) Made a shape 2) Made a Bone Layer 3) Placed Vector Layer into Bone Layer 4) With Bone Layer selected - clicked on "Add Bone" Tool 5) Clicked within Shape to place a single Pin Bone.

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

The moment I begin speaking about any software or new computer technique - whether the focus is artistic or otherwise - my Wife's eyes begin to glaze over and wander slightly to the right. When I say something like "are you listening to me?" - she always assures me that she is. I always wondered why...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

Grease Pencil Layers can be Parented to any other object - like one single bone or even an Empty. And, multiple Grease Pencil Layers can be Parented to the same Bone or Empty. The basics of such parenting (rigging) are to be found in my video: xdPMziIHFlU The web can make or break a product. I'm see...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

Janochli: You see - I think this kind of thing is what confuses people about modern Animation Software. Not so much WHAT is being done with it - but WHO is doing stuff with it. NERDS. Not to categorize anyone (ahem) - but who in the world would approach animating a character by means of cryptic line...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

You can flip a shape by scaling it - starting on one side of an axis and dragging across the center (where your Right Mouse Cursor is located) continuing until it is visually the same volume as it was (use the middle mouse click to establish the axis - after beginning to drag in that direction). At ...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

Steve: I'm very glad you shared all these things with us. The general topic of "express yourself and make money at the same time" is fairly universal among many people who hover around this and other creative forums. May I recommend alternating between spaghetti, Dinty Moore Beef Stew and Hormel Chi...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

Steve: I would never dream of monetizing a YouTube Channel. Their avenues for making "revenue" are pathetic and impotent, entirely. Not only so, but I hate advertising - especially of the YouTube variety. I would never put anyone through that means of torture to recover a few pennies. Animation trai...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

P.S. Since my video tutorials have featured Moho 12 (Anime Studio Pro) - Blender 2D, 2 1/2D and Grease Pencil - and OpenToonz . . . the statistics overwhelmingly show that interested viewers far favor the FREE variety of software. These statistics also show that those who bother to subscribe to my C...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

Steve: Wow! Lassoing a character using 2D Tools seems like one of the more impossible tasks to attempt. At least, using Blender, you could cheat by offsetting the "back" of the lasso drawing in 3D space - making the whole exercise a 2 1/2D one. Using automated tools and rigs of every kind tend to pr...

Re: Blender New Innovative 2d Animation "GP Tools"

Steve: Vote as many times as you like. Had it not been for your vocal qualities - I wouldn't even be messing with Grease Pencil, probably. I don't see any easy way to do the equivalent of switch layers. It would be a real hassle. There is a way to do complete, Bone Articulated 2D animation - but it ...
