How to Use the Layers?

Animation Desk for Windows supports one background layer and two drawing layers.

To manage layers, tap on the layer icon on the bottom-left toolbar. The layers will show on the left side of the canvas.

The layer icon shows with an upper-case number to indicate which layer you are on:

4.8_layer_0_bg.PNG L0: means you are currently drawing on the Background layer.

4.8_layer_1.PNG L1: means you are currently drawing on the Layer 1.

4.8_layer_2.PNG L2: means you are currently drawing on the Layer 2.

 

To insert an image to any layer, click on the 4.8_icon_layer_image.PNG under the layer where you want to insert an image, and then choose an image.

* Note: When you insert an image to the background layer, the image will show up on all the frames in this project.

 

To clear the drawing on any layer, click on the 4.8_icon_layer_clear.PNG under the layer you want to clear. A dialogue will appear to ask you to confirm your action. Tap “OK” if you want to clear the drawing and image on the layer.

 

To show or hide a layer, click on the “Eye” icon under the layer you want to show or hide:

4.8_icon_layer_show.PNG means the layer is showing on the frame you are editing now.

4.8_icon_layer_hide.PNG means the layer is hidden on the frame you are editing now.
