We are happy to announce the release of OpenToonz Morevna Edition version 1.3.0, which includes a long-awaited Assistant Tool! This version also includes all features and improvements of official OpenToonz version 1.2.1 (see them listed here).
The assistants feature was implemented by our developer Ivan Mahonin thanks to many people who funded development of this feature via Bountysource platform. My special thanks to Skyler Madison aka Orphanlast (you might know his YouTube chahnel) who initiated and made a major contributions to make this happen.
One more improvement provided in this version by our team – the ability to execute Toonz scripts from commandline. This feature was developed by request of Melnitsa animation studio. Its most obvious purpose is automation of routine tasks (i.e. when you want to run the same script on multiple files).
To make it work you need to place a Toonz script file in “scripts” folder. Also, make sure that its name ends with “.toonzscript”. After that you can run it by passing full path to the script as commandline argument to OpenToonz executable:
opentoonz /path/to your/project/scripts/yourscript.toonzscript
Again, much thanks to everyone who supported our development by donating through download page and BountySource platform! If you wish to get notified about next versions of OpenToonz by email – you can subscribe on this page.
