I have been using Painter for many years. Started using it in Windows when it was version number 3. I still use the 2016 version running on my desktop and on my Surface Pro 3.
One reason for me using Painter, from the very thing beginning, was the animation/movie in Painter. Today I never use that any more. I use some other software. RoughAnimator and Krita, (some times ClipStudio and SketchBook) when it comes to hand drawn 2D animation.
Next program I will buy is Animation Paper. The new release is soon to come. >First there will be a beta this spring and then a full release in August. Then, I guess, I will use Animation Paper all of the time for animation, but not for painting backgrounds and such. Painter is such a good painting program and can be used for backgrounds, for characters and objects design. They can later be used for for animating in some other software.
The picture below is a part of a background painting for an animation I am working on. The rocks will be floating in the air, slowly moving as the camera is panning along the landscape, A rocket scooter will pass, and...
I am just an old amateur interested in animation, painting and illustration. Using both traditional and digital tools. Painter is only one of them.
Animation in Painter? Anyone? Or anyone interested in animation in this forum?
it looks like this is the second time corel adware comes through with painter 2019, and there's a very funny apology from corel through their social media urchin in the previous thread complaining about intrusive ads:
this company will not stop milking their users until the very last of them moves on it seems.
I ticked the option to see the ads, big boy!
Harry, have you got any of your recent animations to show off?
I love checking in on that kind of action!
I will add some new as soon as I am ready. I just got two very short anims from this year to show. I used Painter making the artwork. Just short ones from my Instagram.
The girl is a time lapse script from Painter that I made into a video (the video is hiding behind the first colour sketch). This script recording function in Painter has been there as long as I can remember. I like it because it is great for making write on titles for animations and whiteboard animations.
The other one, the snow animation, is a gouache on paper that is edited in Painter. I painted the moving snow layers in separate files.
Very basic animations, but nice looking, I think…
I have some fresh ideas to try out where I will use Painter for the artwork. I will be back showing them as soon as they are made.
I just started planning a new short anim for the fun of animation, making the pictures move... That is fun for me. The idea came from someone elses illustration, I don't remember who made it and where I saw it. A house in the woods it was. And I liked it. I made a quick sketch in my notebook of the house, used my phone to scan the sketch and Painter to edit it. The house is the main character in my short animation.
