Parameter Description
Navigator
 

Show Navigator: Show or hide the display of the Navigator in the Network view when starting Toon Boom Harmony.

Navigator Starting Corner: Indicates which corner is the default Navigator’s position.

Magnifier
 

Width Multiple: Sets the width of the magnifier in tenths of the Network view width. Values range from 0.1 to 10.

Aspect Ratio: Sets the width to height ratio of the magnifier. Values range from 0.1 to 10.

Opacity: Sets the transparency of the magnifier. Values range from 0 to 100. A value of 100 make the magnifier completely transparent. A value of 0 makes the magnifier completely opaque.

Options
 

Cable Type: Displays Network connections as Line (straight) or Bezier (curves).

Middle Mouse Button Pans the View: Lets you use the middle mouse button to pan the Network view.

Double Click on a Module Opens the Editor: Lets you open a module's property editor by double-clicking.

Port Output Ordering: Orders the Output Port Right to Left or Left to Right.

Port Input Ordering:Orders the Input Port Right to Left or Left to Right.

Layer Drawing Options

 

Antialiasing Quality: Smoothness setting applied to colour art. The higher the setting, the greater the amount of antialiasing that is applied. Higher quality images require more time to render and more system memory. Choose a lower quality if you are rendering a Pencil Test.

Low: No antialiasing

Medium Low: Some antialiasing

Medium: Medium antialiasing

High: Extensive antialiasing

Antialiasing Exponent: Controls the amount of area around the Line and Colour Art edges that is used in the antialiasing process. A higher value uses less area, resulting in sharper edges, while a lower value uses more area, resulting in softer edges. If the Antialiasing Quality value is set to Low (no antialiasing), this value is ignored.

Read Colour: Controls the production of colour information from bitmap images. If this module reads 3 or 4-channel bitmaps, this selection determines whether the colour should be read or ignored. If this module reads 1-channel bitmaps, this selection determines whether the channel should be read as colour. When this option is selected with 1-channel images, the result will be a greyscale image.

Read Transparency: Controls the production of alpha information from bitmap images. If this module reads a 1 or 3-channel image, this option will create a matte from the colour values in the image. If the module reads a 4-channel image and this option is not selected, the alpha information in the image will be ignored.

Alignment Rule: The Alignment position for the element module. The new element module will be created following this default rule of alignment.

Transparency Type:

Premultiplied with Black: Pixels at the edge of an image are blended with black.

Straight: Pixels at the edge of an image are blended with black, white and greys.

Premultiplied with White: Pixels at the edge of an image are blended with white.

Clamp Colour to Alpha: Select this option when you want to premultiply the colour value with the alpha value. When the colour is clamped to the alpha, the colour value cannot be higher than the alpha value. It calculates the real colour value faster. When the RGB values are multiplied with the alpha value, that is to say, if you have a pixel of value R=247, G=188, B=29 and the alpha is 50% or the image has a 50% transparency, then the actual RGB values output would be half of the amounts listed above.
