When I discovered PAP 4 the suplied tutorials in 12 lessons, that could be printed, were fundamental for my learning and understanding of the program. They were thorough and detailed in the way one could use the interface, but also a clear and pedagogical manual about 2D digital animation. Although the intro videos from the new Animation Paper are clear and helpful, they can not be as complete as would be a written tutorial. It would be great if you could elaborate written tutorials for your new Animation Paper again.January 16, 2022 at 8:29 am #4236
Thanks! I was quite happy with those written tutorials for the old PAP as well 😉
The current video tutorials is only meant as rough info on the alpha releases (made before alpha 1). We will of course do proper video tutorials with much more depth for the final release of Animation Paper. We also plan to have some written info.
These days it seems to me that people generally prefer video over text. So if you have all the information included, wouldn’t you prefer it presented as a long series of smaller video tutorials? Let me know.

I agree that probably most people prefer video over text. Nevertheless when I´m drawing in Animation Paper I would like to reduce to the minimum other actions necessary to build the animation. In the old PAP4 interface it is nice to have all the functions you use in view and the information about shortcuts and linked actions appearing each time you point any button. Now in Animation Paper you have to open the different menus to get to the tool or action and the correspondent shortcut. That´s why I think it would be handy to be able to download some important information, like you did in the Help menu with the keyboard shortcuts.The current videos are ok but could deepen a bit more the possibilities your program promises. I agree that the long series of smaller video tutorials you announced can, together with the written information, have the pedagogic job done.
Thanks for your sympathetic disponibility and patient feedback.

Cool. Thanks, Mario. I understand.
By the way: If you hold your cursor above any tool icon or area, you will get a tool tip after a second or so. The tool tip displays the name of the function and the shortcut. It’s somewhat similar to what we had in the old PAP.

I also agree with @Mario, that the PAP written tutorials was one of the best “written” tutorial I have used and read. Its not about words or video. The way it was written was just excellen. If you an make the videos the same quality, fine. What made me use PAP in the first place was that tutorial.
