Motion Comics tutorial for LiveCode

I will start with this character: Leon the Lyin' Lion
from Charlton Comics.
This character was featured in Zoo Comics, 
Funny Animals and Atomic Mouse.

Just started dividing the panels in 
separated images using this Gimp
Divide Scanned Images

To use correctly this script, some
experimentation is required, but 
the pages that I have tested 
works really fine...
(although it creates some extra
images that must be deleted)

After I finished this process, then
these individual images will be traced
using Potrace or Inkscape.

Then, all volunteers will receive the
Comic book panels in two different formats
1) Bitmap 
2) Vector graphic

In this way, volunteers could work in
the format and software of their choice.

Volunteer's tasks are:

1) separate the foreground characters
from its background 

For Gimp:
For Inkscape:

2) Seamlessy restore the background 
For Gimp:

Endernafi, as soon I have separated the images and vectorized
the comic book's panels, you will receive a weblink to
download all the files.

Have a nice week!
