Stop-Motion with TVP Animation

This is a Clay animation film made by school-age children using TVP Animation. Although TVP is used primarily as a "paperless" animation system for drawing directly into the program with a Wacom tablet, the program also has a video frame-capture feature and onion-skinning which permits Stop-Motion animation. In this film the students made good use of TVPaint's "green screen" chroma key feature to place the fish into the sets for the swimming shots . They also used TVP to add effects animation such as the bubbles .



In addition to frame-capturing the clay animation, they used TVP to animate the titles and the small school of fish swimming in the first shot.
