A Brief Introduction to the Project Dogwaffle Frame Painter

a tool made for traditional animators on a tight deadline: got just a few key poses in 2-4 frames? Turn them easily into seconds of lengthy animations, dozens of frames, even hundreds!



  This is a plugin that's being developed for PD Pro 5, but we're also making it available as a free add-on to earlier versions of PD Pro. We have tested it so far successfully on PD Artist (which is based on PD Pro 3.2 code) so we expect that it should run fine under PD Pro 3.5 /3.7 and 4.1 as well. Warning: this can be addictive :-)  Use at your own risk.

The frame painter is a tool that lets you take a few frames you currently have loaded as a limited animation, and spread these in new sequences over more frames. You can then also add a jiggle effect, to give them appearance of motion and life. This is aimed at animators that then also draw the mouth shapes into the faces of their animated characters, and  work with the Mouth plugin (Exposure Sheet) so that the lips look right based on the audio track of what they're saying.

Download the plugin it:
    
new! Size:  62.0 KB (63,488 bytes)  (uploaded Dec. 4 2010)

Save the file into the folder where your Project Dogwaffle is installed, such as

C:\Program Files (x86)\Project Dogwaffle Professional
or
C:\Program Files\PD Pro
or
C:\Program Files\PD Artist

just to show a few examples. You'll need to navigate to your installation folder and save the downloaded file there.

After you have placed a copy of the file there, you can launch Dogwaffle as usual and open the plugins panel to find the Frame Painter plugin in the Misc. category tab.


Here's a bunch of samples with short movies created with FramePainter:
