I’ve been doing some pose studies in Photoshop and wanted to start out in Animation Paper doing the same. I loved PAP and how easy it was not just for animation but also for drawing. Drawing in Animation Paper is really easy and simple. I love the colored layers, and the cut/lasso tool is amazing that it doesn’t lose quality with scaling. One thing was sometimes picking up/putting down my pen (using Wacom Cintiq) it’d cause a straight line to be put down, but it’s something I’ve seen in other programs and I don’t really mind it.
Since importing images just places it fully in the background, I used PureRef to keep my images on top of Animation Paper. Wondering if there are any goals for importing options – like importing video to frames, gifs, or being able to position/scale images.
Thanks for all your hard work!April 8, 2020 at 8:16 am #2294NielsKeymaster
Thanks a lot Jose!
Your drawings look great!
As you know, you can import a sequence of png’s or jpg’s. But importing animated gifs actually work already too. 🙂 And importing movie files will soon be possible as well.
Right now imported material will just be scaled to fit your “paper”. Later (soon) we will have options to scale and reposition them. But for now I recommend doing ekstra white (or transparent) space around your source frames to make Animation Paper make them fill only a smaller part of your paper.May 12, 2020 at 12:48 am #2832john kanzlerParticipant
SO, rotoscoping will be possible in future? Nice!
