Re: Clip Studio, dropping Smith Micro?

Oh, I agree - the first thing I change in Blender is switching to the left mouse button, and there are other GUI related issues that ought to be resolved in Blender. The 2.8 release will be addressing a number of these, and the developers are aware of the keyboard shortcut mess. Having said this, Bl...

That ain't half bad, actually. Quite like it.

Re: Clip Studio, dropping Smith Micro?

l don't quite agree , Many programs are easy to fall into .Some things are more obvious than others . For example piano seems obvious, but what's with the accordion? What are all those LITTLE buttons for? l 've had that explained , I've nodded and understood , but now, l couldn't tell you. Similarl...

Re: Clip Studio, dropping Smith Micro?

Yes it is in the English Clip EX but as to Open toonz , how it works is a mystery. I could not get any BG images only black and white of the animated objects from Clip Studio, How Open Toonz works is a mystery to me it might as well be Blender. OpenToonz is simple once you understand the concept of...

Re: Clip Studio, dropping Smith Micro?

I use CSP EX and I have a lot of different graphic apps vector and raster. Clip Studio Paint is the only one that gives me the feeling of artistry. It is very comfortable. I hope for better animation a way to not have to copy paste so many frames. Example: Draw one object and be able to use it with...

Re: Clip Studio, dropping Smith Micro?

Still it was worth every penny because Clip's line quality is amazing. On the left is my clip studio sketch, on the right are my flash sketches. The moral of the story is flash sucks, but I tolerated it for the infinitely scalable vector graphics. However, thanks to CSP, I may finally abandon flash...

Re: Clip Studio, dropping Smith Micro?

Thanks for the recommendation herbert123! It's unfortunate that Clip Studio doesn't export to vector format, but awesome to hear that Opentoonz includes a vector engine too. I've been looking to break my dependence on Adobe products so I will definitely give Opentoonz a look at some point. Thanks a...

Re: Clip Studio, dropping Smith Micro?

@DarthFurby the newest version also has direct export to OpenToonz animation format. I love drawing in ClipStudio, but for animation production management OpenToonz is far superior. Best of both worlds now! While the export to OT from CS creates bitmap artwork, it is simple to convert the bitmap lin...

Re: OpenToonz v1.2 released!

Thank you I find the UI in OT to be the Blender of 2D animation. CONFUSING. I think it the initial confusion is caused more by the concepts and workflow in OT, rather than the GUI. New users have to wrap their heads around the concept of levels, columns, and how these are used in the nodal view and...

At the left top of the Xsheet, click the "Xsheet" labelled button. It doesn't look like a button at first glance, but it is.

Re: OpenToonz v1.2 released!

Hey Herbert, does it import the Vectors of clip .clp or only bitmap exports? Bitmap. However, when you export your black and white strokes into OpenToonz, it takes literally a minute to convert those strokes to center-line vector strokes with dynamic thickness that look absolutely identical. And ar...

Re: OpenToonz v1.2 released!

This is interesting... Needs translation plugin https://www.celsys.co.jp/en/topic/20170228 The Western version of ClipStudio supports direct native export to OpenToonz now as well. I use ClipStudio myself, and it works like a charm: create your animation in CS, export, and import in OT. Very powerf...

OpenToonz v1.2 released!

Although called a "minor" update, this version includes: - a horizontal timeline which is zoomable (!) - MyPaint bitmap brush engine that expands OT's bitmap painting capabilities far beyond the initial release - Guided drawing for vector brushes - flip viewer horizontally and vertically - export so...

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

This really looks fascinating, Herbert, but a different world from AS/Moho. The hero with the quick draw (with his weapon) seemed to be a 3D character with a 2D look. I suppose the way to understand this stuff would be to get to know Blender as a 3D program first. Thanks for keeping us informed. Th...

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

Lots of development going on now that the first 2d animation short using solely GP Tools is in production.

Multi-frame editing, VFX modifiers, other new modifiers,... It's looking to be a very exciting release.
