View Full Version : Painter 9- serious problems

03 March 2005, 03:00 AM
Ok, I was animating in painter, doing every frame by hand. I decide I need to save after doing like 25 frames, and I wanted to play it back first. I do that, and for some reason it copied my last frame over every single other frame! And it automatically saved that way, and there's no undo! It doesn't say anything about this and I don't know what the hell is wrong. I just lost an hours worth of work, and I'm not going to use this program if it's just going to bug out on me again. Can anyone help me? :cry:

got to watch the animation in Painter ... no undo!
Its a ruthless system. Ive had many experiences of losing hours of work.

In the end, I chose layers in .gif format to finalize the animation. I've learned my lesson, I'm never using that again. Way too much grief and too much time.
I ended up with about 400 frames and I liked it better that way, just duplicating the layers and then keeping it fluid. Redrawing every single frame is too much work, it makes no sense.
