Another explosion!
Hopefully i'm getting better.
Trying out secondary explosions and effects.

I recently bought Toonboom!
Testing and playing around with it.
So far it's rather good!

(I really don't know what's goin on inside my head sometimes..)

Hi! I wanted to say that was a great animation you made. I was wondering I purchased Toon Boom Studio a couple of a weeks ago and I'm having trouble with the minimum, maximum, and smoothness of the pencil brush. What did you used for the brush of the pencil?

Thanks!
I actually use the brush tool. Someone else actually asked me that same question and I took a snapshot of what I have my settings to [link]
Usually I keep the to right columns to 0 and I guess you could change the left columns any number as long as they were the same.
(I like to have my lines really thin, so maybe 1 or 2?)

Hey I just did two animations on Toon Boom Studio and they look pretty good. I want to upload them to this site, but it won't let me. How did you upload yours?

:iconjeffreylai:
jeffreylai Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013   Filmographer
hmm what sort of files are they?
I exported them in toonboom as swf files and uploaded them into the category flash animations.

I have it as swf files, but it's asking me to upload preview image. I try to upload something as a preview image, but it won't let me. what did you upload preview image?

I usually take a small snapshot of it. I think there's a specific size you have to adhere to.
If you go to the little edit/pencil icon in the corner you should be able to change the preview image
I think that might solve your problem?

Toonboom is pretty awesome!
I like it much more than Flash now that I think about it.
Though the one thing I wish it could do was to be able to export gifs.
Other than that I highly recommend it for all your animation needs!

Here's some tutorials that really helped me!

Well I admit that it isn't easy, it's quite a large learning curve.
Though I learnt most of what I know from the internet.
So i'm sure you could do it, if I can!
You just have to really want to!
This I did in Toonboom animate. (but you could also do it in Flash, there's lots of programs that you could choose from and some are free)

oh yea! CS5 should be able to do it (well from what i've heard)
There's a timeline somewhere you can work with.
I'm sure if you google it, something should pop up.
Oh no problem, glad I could help :)
