I also mention that you can change your project settings to make sure your resolution and frame rates are correct. These options are in Project>Modify Project. Any modifications to your project will cause TVPaint to make a duplicate version of your project with adjustments made to it.
I mention that I change hotkeys to suit my workflow better. Here are the ones I update-
Z - Layer: Go Left
X - Layer: Go Right
Y - Layer: Light Table Mode
L - Shape: Line
Shift Z - Layer: Exposure: Go to Previous Instance
Shift X - Layer: Exposure: Go to Next Instance
Shift F - Image: Flip Horizontally
Shift C - Layer: Insert Single Image After Current Image
