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

Interesting. I posted a response on the Toonboom forum mentioning Grease Pencil and Blender's 2d animation capabilities, and they immediately removed the entire thread. I know a number of animation studios have been adopting Blender for 2d animation work, so it makes sense.

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

I am intrigued by of the 2D work I see being done with Blender. I wish I had time to explore it myself. Version 2.83 is going to be a major update for 2D animation in Blender. The current version still has some issues with anti-aliasing, for example, and these are resolved in the refactor of Grease...

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

After watching the wonderful Klaus last Christmas, I am certain 2d (style) animation is going to be just fine.

That Toy Story 4 won the Oscar instead of Klaus is a farce. Disney has a stranglehold on the industry, that's for sure.

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

To me, tvpaint is among the superior 2d animation tools but with more and more features added to GP tools that 1st place does not seem so secure :) As a TVP user who has been trying to use the latest Grease Pencil, I can say with confidence that there is still a long way to go before Blender gets t...

Game changer! Blender 2.82 will import and convert SVG files cleanly to grease pencil layers, ready for 2d animation, cut-out rigging, and more. Check out the preview video:

Re: Any rumblings of a date for Moho 13 yet?

I second Krita for digital painting and drawing. As for image compositing, I favour PhotoLine. I also have a license of Affinity Photo, but only use that for HDR and focus stacking. Affinity Photo is okay for general comp and image editing work, in my opinion. PhotoLine is much more flexible and out...

Re: Affinity sale

I have extensive experience with Photoshop and stopped using Photoshop a couple of years ago in favour of PhotoLine. I also have a license of Affinity Photo. In short: for me personally Affinity Photo has too many smaller and larger workflow quirks and missing features at this point. The GUI, while ...

Re: toon boom versus anime studio

Hi: I just watched mulan 2 and was impressed to see at the end credits that the movie was made using toon boom. Mulan 2 is drawn frame by frame. Probably scanned in, cleaned up, and coloured in what was Toon Boom back in 2004. It's called a paper-based workflow. The software was used to speed up th...
