@MelodyAnimations Ok, I got back. So yeah, all the drawings, the songs and the text are there, but then then main file vanished (according to some reports this is already known and they are working to fix this problem since people get troubled by this from blackouts, restarting their pcs or kicking their power cables abruptly)
Each drawing has a numbered name that indicates the layer number it belonged to, and the frame it was assigned to previously e.g 003.677 (layer 3, frame 677)
So it’s relatively easy to reconstruct the animation, but basically you have to import each image separately and roughly place it on it’s respective frame as similar as you can recall the previous file, since the position data was lost. This might be annoying but at least you don’t have to re-draw everything.
IF you use Windows, there is faint hope to find an older version of your animation inside the %TEMP% folder for the Operating System:
Inside the temp files folder > find the Pencil2D folder > then look for the name of your file. Inside it’s possible you find an .XML file. If you do you might be spared from importing all the files, but this is not always the case for most of these issues so be sure to look into it.
With that said, I honestly advice to save incremental files every time there is a major change. From a professional perspective leaving all the work data in a single file is bad practice and it calls for issues like this where you can’t fall back to a previous revision. If we have a previous version file we could at least help to position the drawings that weren’t drawn at the time, instead of the whole animation.
I’ll link the zipped data folder here so you can download it back:
