HI! I now have the latest iPad Pro released this week,and Pencil. I downloaded Tagtool from the App Store, and have been playing with it, trying to get used to the controls. I then downloaded the Beta Tagtool because I thought it might be further along with recording functions, etc, but I realise now it’s possible I’ve gone back an interaction! Right now I have the Beta on my iPad.
I’m having a lot of fun, but I have questions. Apologies if what I’m asking has been covered before.
I notice there is no way to save completed videos and go back and edit them, so if I make one animation and want to move on to another, I have to just take a screen recording (or equivalent) and screenshots for the record and move on to the next animation. Is this correct?
I see that Decks is some way of saving objects. When I was using the TT I bought from the App Store, I managed to save a couple of objects. But when I loaded the Beta version, the previous TT disappeared along with everything in the Deck. I don’ t mind, but in my Beta version, I can’t figure out how to save any objects in the Deck! All I can do is name the Decks. That’s all. Can Decks save entire animated works so I can go back to them, or only individual objects?
I can’t figure out what AIM is used for!
I want to draw objects in other programs and bring them in because my freehand painting isn’t as good as you guys! I read that you cut out objects in png and imported them… can someone walk me through how to do that? I might, for example, draw something in ArtRage or Paper and want to cut out the shape and import it as an object in TagTool. I need help with the steps to do that.
Should I delete the beta and go back to my paid version of TagTool from the App Store?
I know this is a lot of questions. If there is anyone around Cambridge or London who might have some time to spend with me on a tutorial in person, I would be happy to pay. Please contact me at Karen.Eng@mac.com.
Thank you!! K
