oh shit my bad.

I wonder if this is a good or bad time to buy version 11.
they might release it for free, if the company goes kaput.

How do professionals plan out a scene from start to finish?
>>
>>3581746
I'm not surprised. It's had "poor management" since the fucking start. The worst part of TVPaint is the dongle, it's like they're actively trying to incentivize pirating their shitty software
>>
>>3581803
Storyboards
>>
what is sakuge animation and what is "forced animation"?
>>
>>3581805
What's a dongle
>>
>>3581820
It's a USB device that acts like a key. While TVPaint is open, you have to plug in your dongle or the software kicks you out
>>
>>3581803
storyboards, iterations, and reference.

>>3581814
sakuge animation is when a segment/moment in an anime is drastically upped in animation quality for dramatic effect. forced animation is mostly a buzzword, it's when an animation is overly-animated, like too many keyframes for a simple movement. 99% of the time it's bullshit and extremely nitpicky

also i get that its an animation general and this is by no means no offense to you guys, but ive been seeing a lot of questions lately that could be easily answered by quick google searches, and would probably get you an answer faster than waiting for a random anon to reply to. its great to see people with genuine interest so keep asking, but its just odd to me to post such general questions.
>>
>>3581834
human interaction is fun, even if it's thru an impersonal media like 4chin
let them post their /beg/ questions
>>
>>3581848
i get that, and like i said, its great to see the interest and people asking questions. the questions are just more general and impersonal that i dont see much of a social benefit from them. like theyre simple "what is x" types of questions ya know?

maybe im just an autistic anti-social jerk idk, i just like efficiency

never released publicly
paperman was 95% 3DCG, rotoscoped
the innovation was that their software would use the movement of the 3D models in 2D space (the camera view) to automatically tween the drawn-over linework

There probably is. Just look, man.

One of the first things I think you'll want to do is change your next frame/previous frame hotkey to something intuitive like z and x, this lets you "flip" your frames easily while still having your hand mercifully close to those all-important "undo" keys.

Go to "settings > dockers" and you'll see all of the relevant windows for animation in Krita. To add a frame just right click on the timeline on a blank cel and select "create blank keyframe". Once a frame is created it is considered "exposed" until interrupted by a new frame.

You can change the range, opacity and color of your onion skin in that docker, you can change the color of keyframes in the timeline to separate inbetweens, keyframes and breakdowns if you want. You can control most of the important stuff by right-clicking on the timeline, everything's pretty self explanatory. Just mouse hover over the icons and they'll tell you what they do.

There is no "tweening" and it's still a little unstable but it's easily good enough to use for a beginner's practice. Good luck

>>3582256

thanks mate
>>
>>3582614
are you already comfortable with non animated digital painting?

my advice would be to start with structure as usual and then to block in the basic shapes with a couple of mid tones. after that add your details one by one (one detail on every frame before moving to the next detail.).

as long as there's some texture to it you'll be fine
>>
>>3585492
Huff dude, coloring this might take away from how good it looks... if you decide on coloring this I'd suggest going with a very very light grayscale and backgrounds without linework with high emphasis on light shadows and if you really wanna go with background linework then use a darker shade of the shadow color

The background is supposed to be a dimly lit cabin, with a very few light sources, like candles. I was thinking of doing a simple background and then adding the light in after effects or something like that. The dudes skin in the gif is going to be light gray anyway.

>>3585538
Great shorts man, i really like the style. I can see why you would say you hated the backgrounds, but i think they add to the atmosphere.

There's some resources to learn rigging these days (the stuff in above is just my own years of experiments and I arleady know TB inside out). But really good rigging can be found in these two places:
Stylus rumble has two full rigs on her tutorial pages, as well as how to build them from ground up.

yeah most people said similar things so I guess y'all are right haha
but you can still see that I wasn't very good at them, and that I didn't put much effort into them
Not every film has to be the best in every way, I think my style and storyboard saved me, and your style and natural movement could save you

Though I'm not certain if I want to get into the animation industry, I would very much like to aim for a quiz game for now, with well animated characters asking you a variety of things.

>>3586758
The shoulder should move when her hand makes that motion. It looks very unnatural with that kind of movement with a heavy object, consider the weight. There also isn't enough anticipation for the hand, and it leads into her breathing in to blow the trumpet to soon. Making it a little awkward and less readable. Space those two actions out, also consider making her hand play a note by having one finger push a note. It'll turn out nicer. I liked the anticipation you added to blow the trumpet .
>>
>>3586821
we're talking about her right hand (our left), huh? That's the main problem?
I can do that I think.
>>
>>3586829
Yes, her right hand that is behind the instrument. I still like the air puff anticipation though, keep it up.
>>
>>3586758
The most glaring issue is that sudden whiplash forward. It just looks retarded.
The arm is too straight.
Torso anatomy is bad.
There's no sense of proper planning/flow.
The instrument remains perfectly the same perspective when the top changes perspective to show rotation and depth, you have to do both not just for the top only.
The one thing I will give note to you is the subtle hand movement onto the keys.
>>
>>3586840
Thank you very much. I'll work on it real quick once I get home.
>>3586845
I'm fine with her moving silly. That was my intent after all.
You're completely right regarding the arms. I'm suppose to draw the sleeves with some folds and creases and stuff like that. At least a few.
regarding torso anatomy... I might be misunderstanding how you're seeing her naked bod under her clothes but miss Kumiko wears her skirt above her hips.
And I assure you... I did try to plan the frames out. I tried for a sort of quick eye-opening bit- where after her eyes have shut- for one frame her eyes would open so hard they'd be stretched out a bit- but in the next frame they would be normal. This is so I could have her eyes change from one type to another. Although in retrospect I could have just have switched them out after she dips her head down. But I still think it looks kind of nice.
I have no excuse for the euphonium. I'm being very lazy regarding it and it shows. Sorry. I'll draw more frames for it.

I don't believe TVPaint will die.
I believe after 3d animation become over-used in everywhere (hollywood, advertisement, eastern - western animations etc.) 2d animation is becoming more popular since like 5 years. Here are some links to great 2d animations that used TVP. Also pic is my work.

Not him, but it's obvious that you can't draw. When animators can't draw they find ways to hide it skillfully. You don't know how to do that.

As far as animation goes, it's nothing. All stills with some repeating motions and quick actions. Then you have a couple of things that are motion tweened while all other movements are keyed. It makes it more jarring.

Your colors suck too. It's like a middle schooler using MSpaint for the first time.

good job on going through and finishing such a large project. finishing something isn't easy.
the visuals are interesting, but if you consider going into animation, try to learn the basics of anatomy, perspective and compositing.
now in my opinion, there's no need to hold back on working on your creative projects, you don't have to master every field, before you tackle a film, but try to learn from your mistakes and better do small projects that don't eat up your time too much.
you still have to go a long way, but you show tenacity and morale.
good luck!

I just really dislike one thing that you did and a lot of others do in 2D animation - at the beginning of the gif when the monster is taking shape, its legs stay fixed while the top half moves, I know the logic behind it (Why re-draw the same thing if it just stays in place) but man does it look uncanny, and I know this is rough animation so for the final product please take the time to draw at least two if not three frames of those legs and copy/paste those in the same position so at least it looks like you drew the entire thing all the way, that's what I do in my animations and it helps infinitely
>>
>>3602799

it suppose to be bowling ballesque. but yeah maybe it stopped too soon! thanks for that!

>>3602944
Thanks, friend. But yeah, I'm just kind of messing around, trial and error like. A lot of it is moving individual frames around after I've finished animating, then tweaking the drawing.

>>
>>3603980
>>3603988
The look of the lines suggest that you made this in Flash. If so, you can just infinitely scale your finished animation to whatever resolution you need. The canvas size in Flash doesn't mean shit, since everything is done with vectors. Animating with a 3500x2100 canvas would just take up unnecessary resources. As long as your resolution is 16:9, the final export through Swivel/After Effects is what matters.
>>
>>3604815
how to set that?
how to export that?
>>
>>3604900
First I'd recommend using a smaller canvas size. I use 960x540 because it's half of 1080p. When you click onto your blank canvas, the properties tab will show you what resolution your file is at. When you create a new document, it will let you choose your canvas size. Anything above 1280x720 is kinda ludicrous and unnecessary.

After you export your animation as a SWF file [CTRL-Enter], you could put the SWF into Swivel.
https://www.newgrounds.com/wiki/creator-resources/flash-resources/swivel
Swivel basically converts your SWF vector animation into an MP4 video. In the software, you could select what resolution you'd like the file to be converted to, and what bitrate you'd like your video to be.

Vectors aren't pixels, they're points that define lines and curves that eventually define a whole shape. This shape can be scaled infinitely larger or smaller. Swivel basically takes the entire SWF and all of the vectors inside, and scales it to fit a video resolution. It's similar to when you upscale an image in Photoshop, but without the loss of quality. So as long as the stage in your Flash document is set to a 16:9 aspect ratio, the resulting SWF file can be scaled up to a 1080p video or even 4K if you'd like.

If you want to reduce the size of your canvas but there's an animation already there; you could select all of the layers in the animation, then cut and paste them into an empty symbol. The symbol nests your whole animation inside of it, so now you could do camera pans, or just have an easier time placing it in the composition.

anyways yeah i get real autistic about this stuff

I've seen you working on this for months now. it's time to move on.
on a side note; posing and timing doesn't feel right. the anticipation looks great, but it doesn't pay off.
look at this reference, you can feel the force he needs to blow into the saxophone.
in your animation, the energy just poofs off. I see you used one smear frame to quickly move her instrument back up. why? don't fall in love with your frames, if they don't support the overall action, get rid of it.
