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

Here are revealed all the secrets of the Jumping, One-Legged Man. It's not necessary to have a steady hand or to use a graphics tablet, even. Grease Pencil has phenomenal smoothing tools for drawn shapes - both for smoothing during Drawing and for "Sculpting" - after the fact. A very convincing anim...

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

Steve: Here is one of the best things about Grease Pencil: Your animation is already rendered as you make it - in the Viewport. You don't render it as you would a typical Blender file or animation. At the top left of the interface, under "Render" select "Open GL Render Animation". For starters, I wo...

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

Exile: No need to hang GP up. Have you tried using the "Blender Builder" latest version of 2.78 for Windows? These are also quite stable, too: https://builder.blender.org/download/ I believe all of the "Interpolation" controls and settings are working in the latest Build. You just gotta keep going, ...

Here is my "Foundational" Grease Pencil Drawing, Sculpting, Animating and Automatic In-Betweening video: j3l7XOLE_V0 The emphasis is in using Grease Pencil in the fastest, most efficient manner - using Keyboard Shortcuts and Mouse-Click functions.

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

Unfortunately, I have just verified that some of the most important Grease Pencil functions are missing in the Official 2.78 Windows build - as released on the Blender.org website. Namely, these are the Stroke Subdivision Tools and all of the "Automatic In-Betweening" Tools. However, these important...

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

Herbert: Yes, the more I examine the Grease Pencil suite of tools - the more I am impressed - even excited. Even more so since I have learned to streamline the interface - tailoring it for Grease Pencil use. Thanks for helping to change my mind. Today's experimentation has revealed that all characte...

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

Steve: It's quite alright to ask all questions - personal or not. Everybody is benefitting from these questions - and their answers. It is a chore to set this up. But, once it's done - NEVER AGAIN. Your friend is "Cntrl-U" (Save Startup File) I just downloaded and tried the "Official" Blender 2.78 -...

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

In the Grease Pencil "Optimization" video, above - I only remembered, at the last minute, that to keep all of the interface optimization changes that have been made - the final and most important step is to go to the file menu and select "Save Startup File". Without doing this, the U.I. Layout chang...

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

One other major "plus" for using Blender's Grease Pencil is the speed and efficiency of Blender's code. Along with the fact that Grease Pencil's art and animation operates under realtime rendering implementations. Ultimately, this means playback of your animation - as you work - is in real time - th...
