Hi Steveblake!

This is what I got from our programmer...
---
According to these specs, this graphics card only works in 24bit modes:
http://www.ntsi.com/3d_graphics_car...reGL2_specs.htm

This discussion suggests hope, but I wouldn't count on it:
http://forums.us.dell.com/supportfo...&message.id=350

Thus, running PAP in its current form will not be possible, but we are considering developing a windowed version of PAP, which you will be able to run.
---

I'm sorry steveblake, but please keep an eye on http://www.plasticanimationpaper.dk for any news on the windowed version! Thanks.

Hey, I appreciate the help anyway!

I hope PAP does develope into a windowed app. From what I remember reading on your site, it seems you're thinking of implementing some new features too, so that's got to be worth the wait!

By the way, out of interest, is PAP being used in many 2D animation studios??

Thanks for listening...

Yes.

Denmark is a great animation country, with great schools and lots of studios and animators. Most of them know PAP very well and most of the studios have licenses. Many of the most "digitally involved" studios are using PAP as their only way of animating 2D. Also danish gamecompanies are using PAP extensively.

We only released PAP for the world wide audience a couple of weeks ago, so we are very excited about the hype and nice comments we recieved about it already!

Hey! Steveblake and others!


We have just uploaded a beta of PAP which runs in 24 or 32 bit screen mode!

So people who had problems with the 8 bit mode, please visit our forum for more info!! http://www.plasticanimationpaper.dk/forum

Thanks!

Brilliant! Downloading now...

I'll post some feedback to the forum and possibly here, for those that are interested.

NielsKM, thanks to you (and the programing team)

could we find a 2d animation app like old autodesk animator pro, animator studio or deluxe paint these days? I don't like the way painter or paint shop pro's animation shop handle things. I prefer a software just like the animator studio or deluxe paint but in XP!

Have you tried PAP ila_solomon ?? It's very good indeed.

Still, I have tried Pro Motion once or twice, that seems a bit more more like Dpaint. Just didn't click with me tho..

oh, yes, I was impressed, that's a very cool app (reminds me old good days of amiga!)
but, it's still a powerfull lightbox, no feature for inking/painting & motion graphics (just like DPaint, for example)
a question: are all PAP versions the resulotion dependent?

don't honestly know about it, but I'm guessing that all the versions of PAP are currently bitmap based.

And yeah, did you try ProMoton?? I think it does inking etc...

It's just that PAP is so, intuitaive and easy to use that even if it was just used to rough stuff out, it stands head and shoulders above any 2d software I've seen. (But again, that's just me)

As for feedback on the current PAP: beta:

the only quibble I have so far is in the save animation screen, (ie file management bit), the lower text and buttons are off the screen, so not at all readable...

But everything else so far seems to work very well. And it's a joy to be able to dabble at work during my lunchhours...

This is an animation I did with Photoshop and JASC. At this point, it'd just be a buttload easier to use flash.

Far from perfect, but I still think it's cool as hell. Feedback, anyone?

Nice!

The one bit that bugs me slightly is that it's not obvious that he's flicked his head at the wall. It just seems to shoot off his hand - maybe have more of a follow-through from the arm so that you can see what pushed it....

Thanks.

I tried to fix that, but it was either adding bad-looking hands, or just bending the arm in a way that just looked unnatural (heh... me complaining about making this look natural...). But, I'm satisfied, considering I did that on a Saturday morning before I showered while I had a cold. Oh yeah - 3 hours. So more time than effort went into it. But... whatever.
