Loading Drawings and Elements

Once you launch Harmony Paint, you need to load a scene’s drawings from the Database Selector, in order to start the ink and paint process. The drawings must have previously gone through the Xsheet and Scanning processes.

There are two ways of loading drawings:

Open Drawings
This option will let you load drawings from one element at a time, for quick ink and paint on a single layer animation.
Open Elements
This option will let you load drawings from several elements at once. This can be useful when an animation is separated in many layers, to insure that they are well aligned and that the painted shapes and lines fit together. A good example of this would be a dialogue with the chin and mouth separated from the rest of the head.
