ASP11 How to use Frame by Frame with layers and masking

Hi everyone, here is a longer guide to using Frame by Frame in ASP11 with all the benefits of multiple layers and masking.

Although not immediately obvious, you can very easily keep all the layers synchronised by using a master layer for timing and referencing all the others.

Here is a template that will give you synced layers including blue line, clean-up, fill with masked highlights and shadows.
Many useful styles for FBF are included in the template.

FBF Template zip

FBF Template.anime

It is fairly in depth and I do waffle on a bit but there are some useful hints in there ( some that I accidentally forget to utilise in the clip itself- keep an eye out for where I tell you that it's often best to use merge shapes and then leave it unchecked for the entire video- well done Chucky).

So be patient and check it out.
Oh and forgive the lousy drawing and animation, I just hope that the method of using the program might be useful and some far better artists will show us what can really be done in this increasingly powerful application.





I'll be happy to answer any questions.

"The video has been removed for being too long" I don't know if that's something on your end or if the system is being dumb.

"Video has been removed for being too long."

Hmm. Shouldn't we be the judge of that? :)

Looking forward to seeing it eventually.

Hmm, I do see that you just updated it, but it still isn't working for me. Different issue though now. Seems to show a 0 length video. Definitely looking forward to this video :)

Great video, Chucky. Could probably do without the self-deprecating though (we all know better). :wink:

Wonderful! Thanks for sharing!

By the way, did you do Crustacea in Anime Studio 10? I was answering another question and realized that when I tried to find a link to it. It's beautiful!

I'm really impressed with the new drawing tool improvements - works perfectly with the frame by frame.
