Multiple Frame Selection

  • updated
  • Nice To Have

I've been looking into the feasability of colouring an animation in FlipaClip, rather than doing what I usualy do - exporting the line drawings to TVPaint on the PC to do the colouring there. It's actually worked out OK, but there is one thing that would radically speed up the workflow.


If it were possible, once an area of a drawing has been copied, to select multiple frames and then have Flipaclip paste the contents of the paste buffer into all selected frames - that would be brilliant. It is a feature that is available in TVPaint, and one that I use all the time when colouring images across many frames.

And will you add the new colour maker/picker in the new version 2.0?

The color picker will be available sooner then v2.0.

Sooner? There will come an update before v2? And when?

Thing is I can't give you an estimated time since there are some areas that are so complex that it seems it will take a day of work and ends up taking over 4 weeks... :/ We are working towards a new update for the next 1-2 weeks hopefully sooner. This update will not have the new color picker but will have some other major features we will announce soon. :)

Very cool idea. Do you see this feature working from the stage timeline or frames viewer? I assume stage timeline.

Yes - I see this working on the stage timeline, as an extension of the copy/paste functions. So it would only be working on the contents of the active layer.
