Good Morning Adobe community,

 

 

I'm not having any luck finding this paint duration window. I'm trying to switch my paint from constant to single layer, and I'm not able to locate this option in the paint brush tools or paint properties. I'm trying to paint frame by frame rather than my paint constantly being on each frame.

 

I'm thinking maybe I'm overlooking something or maybe I'm just not doing this correctly. 

 

I switched from after effects to animate, the after effects option for this was easy to find but its near impossible for me in animation. Can someone please help me with this issue? 

 

Thank you very much in advance

Hi mate,

 

Do you have trouble creating blank new frames?

Is that what you're asking?

 

If so use F7 and not F6 when you create a new frame to draw on.

 

If this is not what you are asking, try to explain with an example, maybe even screen grabs. You are not using the accepted terminology and it is difficult to understand what you are talking about.

I think that video should explain what I'm trying to say. I'm sorry for the jargon I use, I have prior expereince with after effects and that's how was explained to me.

Hi again mate,

 

Cool! It's all clear now 🙂

 

If you really want to do frame by frame on every frame, you can click on your layer name to select the whole frame span and then hit F7 on the keyboard (on the mac from OS settings you have to enable function keys F1-F12) or right-click and choose Convert To Blank Keyframes (ignore my custom shortcut in the picture).

After that, your layer will look like this:

Each empty circle represents a blank keyframe that you can draw on.

 

If you want to work on twos, use this option:

Result:

so each drawing will last two frames.

 

At the bottom of the timeline thete is the Onion Skin button. If you press and hold it will pop out a menu and you can choose advanced onion skinning settings.

This will allow you to see your previous frames.

 

Have fun!
