Product Description

 

Shooting and compositing tool that satisfies requirements for a variety of expressions and high speed rendering.

CoreRETAS is a tool for carrying out the shooting process in animation production. The tool allows each of the separate materials such as backgrounds and painted cels to be gathered together at the shooting stage to create one scene. Using X-sheets,CoreRETAS HD allows each of the materials to be arranged in the optimum positions and timing for carrying out the shooting with the addition of a variety of production effects. CoreRETAS HD allows the camera work processes, which were previously carried out using cels and film, to be similarly recreated on the personal computer as a “digital camera stand”.

The CoreRETAS HD offers various new features such as: 1.Powerful camera work function including motion path, parent-child pegbars, 3D camera work. 2.Stress-free high-speed operation realized by higher speed rendering. 3.Filters for special effects to provide enhanced screen presentation. 4.Supporting both raster and vector images formats.

Basic Windows and Functions

(1) [X-sheet] window The [X-sheet] window is a center window for your work in CoreRETAS. It will control the timing and overlapping of layers. You can use both [2D Mode] X-sheets compatible with earlier versions of CoreRETAS and [3D Mode] X-sheets supporting 3D camera work.

(2)[Rendering] window This window displays images shot by cameras based on the settings of X-sheets and stage.

(3)[Export Queue] window This window displays a list of exported scenes before exporting them continuously. It also controls the export process to be run and halted.

(4) [Cel Bank] This palette manages all the data used in scenes. It can generate a [Color Plane] painted in a single color.

(5)[Stage] window This window adds camera work to [Backgrounds] and [Cels] placed on the stage by controlling such parameters as [Move], [Zoom In/Zoom Out], and [Rotation].

(6) [Inbetweening] palette This palette carries out inbetweening by setting key frames for [Camera], [Pegbars], and [Layers]. A variety of inbetweening modes, such as [Acceleration], [Deceleration], [Sine Curve], and [Polynomial], are available.

(7)[Effects] palette This palette controls effect filters to provide special effects. A combination of a plural number of effects can be saved as an “effect set”.

(8)[Layer Settings] palette This palette controls various settings for layers, such as [Compositing Mode] and [Transparency Settings].

(9)[Motion Path] palette This palette draws lines and curves so that cameras and layers can follow the paths.
