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.

Re: Vegas Movie Studio 14

I opened Resolve a few weeks ago and my pc laughed at me. It literally laughed. I guess I need a more powerful computer to run it. So I went ahead and splurged on Movie Studio 14. (Better than 13) Herbert... I've never heard of Humble Bundle before so I guess my first question would be, is it legit...

Re: Lost over a whole days of work....

Always, always, always create backups and use some sort of versioning workflow. I use Git/GitKraken to take care of this for me, and it is easy to roll-back changes or inspect edits I did at some point. I use Synkron to automatically mirror a backup to a different drive while I am working. Versionin...

Re: Opentoonz v1.1.3 released!

Horizontal timeline is getting more love. The draw order is now corrected (top to bottom approach like in other layer-based applications), and a zoomable timeline is finally here!

Re: Legal free version of Macromedia Flash MX 2004

That's not legal at all, I'm afraid. Adobe provides those keys because the old CS/CS2 activation servers were shut down, and ONLY CS/CS2 OWNERS may use those keys. That Youtuber guy is completely wrong about being it "free and legal". Free it may be, but most assuredly illegal. Whether or not anyone...

Re: Clip Studio, dropping Smith Micro?

ClipStudio is friggin' amazing. Just for fun I installed my CS EX on my aging Asus epe121 Slate, and did not expect much - after all, the hardware is terribly slow, and Krita runs like a snail in mud. It is unworkable. Photoshop: likewise. ClipStudio with a 600ppi A4 document runs SMOOTH. I couldn't...

Re: Toon Boom Harmony 15 - Features Controllers

Turns out that the new wonderful master controllers require scripting. No GUI option is available.

As you can imagine, users on the Toonboom forum are less than amused, and some feel duped. Moho is mentioned quite a lot - if Moho can do this better, what is Toonboom doing?

Might have been the experimental portable version by Turtletooth? That's for Windows only, I believe.

But thanks, anyway. Looks cool.

Re: Clipstudio Paint Pro and EX English/Spanish/French relea

You know what's brilliant about the latest update? Direct export to OpenToonz I tested it, and it works great!!! Draw and animate in ClipStudio, export to an OpenToonz scene, and load it up in OpenToonz. The result is raster, but it is trivial to convert the line art back to editable vectors in Open...

Re: Toon Boom Harmony 15 - Features Controllers

Ah, sorry - that would be Animate CC (formerly known as Flash). No, Photoshop is not getting a lot of love in that area - at least, not that I am aware of.

Re: Toon Boom Harmony 15 - Features Controllers

Of the new drawing tools (guides and vanishing points), textured vector brushes, and recolouring, only the first one will be available in the basic Essentials edition. The other two will require Harmony Advanced or Premium. The new master controllers, new rigging tools, mattes and masks options, and...
