New feature in Clip Studio Paint EX:
Also known as frame-by-frame or traditional animation, this technique makes an object or character appear to move on its own. The artist can draw individual cels (frames), which act as transparent sheets that can be layered, and create the illusion of movement when the series of cels is played as a continuous sequence.
The timeline provides granular control over timing and display adjustments to create fluid movement of the animations.
The light table illuminates pages, rendering them semi-transparent and making it easier to use multiple layers for reference, which is ideal for creating in-betweens (transitions between cels), and clean-line art for cels and illustrations.
Onion skinning is a technique used in creating animated cartoons and editing movies to see several cels at once, allowing the animator or editor to determine how to create or adjust an image based on the previous image in the sequence.
CLIP STUDIO PAINT EX has all of the features of CLIP STUDIO PAINT PRO, professional story creation tools, as well as other special features, that make it the ultimate illustration tool for serious comic, manga and graphic artists.
