How to Use Frame Manager to Create Animation Effects?

You can use Duplicate and Repeat frame to create the effects that you want without drawing more frames.

For example, when you want to emphasize a certain action in your animation, duplicate or repeat the frames of that actions to create a slow-motion effect.

Repeat has the same effect as duplicate. However, a repeated frame only shows one frame with a time-repeated mark on it (like it is below), while duplicate frame makes multiples of the same frame appear in your Frame Manager.

We recommend using repeat more than duplicate because if you need to change something on a certain frame later on, you will not need to change all the duplicated frames, but only one frame, and Animation Desk will do the trick for you!

 

Delete Multiple Frames

Enter Frame Manager by tapping on 5.3_icon_frames.PNG on the bottom-left toolbar, and tap "View All" to see all the frames in thumbnails.

Click on 0_icon_select.png and choose the frames you want to delete.

Tap on the 4.8_icon_layer_clear.PNG and a dialogue will appear, asking you to confirm your action.

You can also right click on one of the frames and choose “Delete” to delete the selected frames.
