I'm using many images in a sequence to create a stop motion animation. I am using the onion skin to try to line up my frames. I am doing this within a graphic symbol.
My onion skin isnt working though! It does not show me the previous frames, only the future frames- is this because they are solid jpegs? If i toggle the onion skin to just show the past frames- it only shows the frame I am currently viewing, so no onion skinning and none of the frames that the toggle is over. If I toggle ahead and behind it makes my jpeg completely green - not just overlaying the frames as it used to in flash. I cannot actually see the layering of the jpegs in order to adjust them due to this bright green covering the entire image.
I have tried using the outlining onion skin- which hasn't worked, I'm guessing because it is a 1920 x 1080 jpeg im using. Ive tried multiple frames button and this does not work either.
What the heck is going on???
Oddly enough it works fine for me both forward and background. But maybe instead try this... Instead right click on the layer and go to Properties then select Transparent and click OK... you'll now see your jpegs are transparent. Lock that layer and then place another layer above it and trace on that layer instead. Problem solved?
Great idea Asymetrical!
Thanks dude! Totally possible that I've just fallen into a black hole of "every possible bizarre program glitch because it's end of semester".. So I really appreciate the hack!
