I`m new to Corel Painter and I`m trying to figure out how to do rotoscope animation with Mosaics tool. I have imported my reference, but when I make one drawing with the mosaics tool and I switch to next frame, the first mosaic stays on all frames. Is there any solution to make it work inside CP?
Hi Tamara95, I think this is possible here are some steps that I did that seemed to work:
1. Movie > New Movie (I did default size, 3 frames just for this test)2. I went to Effects > Make Mosaic and Tesselation3. Painted some tiles4. Clicked OK on the Make Mosaic and Tesselation dialog5. In the Movie panel, I clicked forward 1 frame.6. I went to Effects > Make Mosaic and Tesselation (again)7. the previous mosaic was there, but I clicked "Clear" to start a new mosaic, said ok to the prompt8. I painted a new mosaic9. Clicked OK on the Make Mosaic and Tesselation dialog10. In the Movie panel, I clicked forward 1 frame.11. I went to Effects > Make Mosaic and Tesselation (again)12. the previous mosaic was there, but I clicked "Clear" to start a new mosaic13. I said ok at the prompt14. I painted a new mosaic
NOTE: Mosaic is designed so you can 're-edit' the tiles/tile color with standard Painter documents (not movies), so by clicking clear between each frame, you are essentially 'rendering the tiles to canvas permanently' and loosing this ability. That said, this should still work nicely for your project as you will likely have several tiled images to make, and re-editing is probably not needed.
Let me know if this helps!
Yes, that was an obvious thing to do :D Thanks, it works well now :)
Awesome! Glad it worked.
