I need help on the exporting matter concerning the canvas size. Ive already set the camera view and its size (1920 ; 1080) though upon exporting it the movie seems to have shrunk for unknown reasons. Ive tried exploding the size and panned my movie frames across the whole camera view but when I export it with the same size it shrinks the whole thing. Any thoughts or help since I need to get done with this till the end of the week but cant due to this? Version: 0.6.4 Windows 10
@Icestrike Hi, make sure you are setting the camera size by double clicking the camera layer, NOT on the movie export dialog. This is a common mistake.
Additionally make sure your camera layer is NOT zoomed in or out. Select the camera layer (must look highlighted in the timeline) and go to View > Zoom > 100% or View > Reset
If your original camera layer size was for some reason smaller than your final output (1920 x 1080), i’m afraid you will have to resize the images manually in a different software to resize them all in one go (preferred method) for this workflow what I usually do is to:
- Export a sequence of png images
- Import the PNG as an animation layer in Krita
- Resize the canvas with content and use lanczos3 or nearest neighbour (experiment for results) so the artwork is crisp and not blurry.
- Render the PNG sequence from Krita and reimport it into Pencil2D
- Render the movie.
This process usually takes less than 5 minutes.
Lastly, please update to Pencil2D 0.6.6, your current version 0.6.4 is way too old and has a lot of issues that have been fixed, including some crash inducing problems.
