Hi all,I'm one of the developers of OpenToonz, a free and open source 2D animation program. I recently overhauled the stop motion capabilities of the program.Please test it out and let me know what…Continue
I managed to get a slider built that will brighten or darken the live view while leaving the final image as is. It will be in the next version along with a new tab that will take and hold test shots so you can test before…"
"Jeremy, yeah thanks I agree.. arghhh I understand now.. it's great your giving more people out there a cheaper different option.. one of the ladies on my puppet fabrication course the other day couldn't afford DF she was…"
It makes sense to stick with Dragonframe. It is a great piece of software. I'm just making this software to help those who can't afford Dragonframe. It has a few features that aren't in Dragonframe like the…"
"Hey Jeremy, good luck with all of this.. I don't know if I got time to test it anyway, have to see.. I'm just about getting use to DF now.. it took me a while.. but now I'm whizzing around doing what I need it to do.. I felt…"
Recently I got a pen display "Huion pro 16" and configured if for working with Opentoonz without problems. I'll continue learning the use of the program. As you said, it's not easy; is very different to other…"
"Antonio, I'll see if I can build in a live view exposure compensation feature, similar to Dragonframe.
Nick and James, the new stop motion features have been tested on a mac, I just need to get a build up for people to test. I don't…"
"Just like Nick I'm also a Mac user.. no pc. otherwise I would probably be interested in having a look.. I also use DF to capture frames.. can't be absolutely certain but wasn't your program big back in 1990, I was 16 I went to…"
I also rely on brightening up the live view, usually have it all the way up at plus 4 in Dragonframe. I get enough light for the final image from long exposures, 1/2 sec to 1 sec, so this is an important feature.…"
"Thanks, Jeremy. Now, liveview is same size and bright than last frame, so can do the steptolive perfectly.
Respect darkness, sadly there is no adjust in the camera for liveview bright. So all scene in animation process is darker than…"
"I can see in the program 4 types of layer (here called levels): Toonz vector level, Toonz raster level, Raster level, Scan level
First of them is vector, next two are bitmap and last is for scaning process.
You can stack levels of every type…"
"Sounds interesting. I can't test it until you release a Mac version though, don't have a Windows computer any more.
Currently I use Dragonframe for capture, which I am happy with, but always looking out for something cheap or…"
"Antonio, that button will show images lined up with live view. Enable this when you want live view images to line up with captured images.
I think that the camera has a setting for live view exposure compensation."
I tested the program a bit. It connect without problems with my canon EOS600D and can do adjusts and shot properly . I found two problems (may be cause I don't know how use the software).
1- The live view is slightly different in…"
"This version works. The program really looks amazing. I'm interested in both 2D animation and stop motion and it's wonder to have both in the same program. I'll try to learn the basics for handle it and do some tests.
Lot thanks for…"
