Animation Clean-up

When your rough animation is ready, it is time to clean it up and ink it. The clean-up is also called tracing. It consists of tracing solid and clean lines over the rough animation to get closed zones. This is the final paperless animation step before the ink and paint step.

You will need to add a new drawing layer to create your cleaned up drawing. This is the equivalent of adding a sheet of paper and tracing the rough using the animation disk.

This method allows you to keep the roughs and the cleans intact. You only need to disable the rough layer to prevent it from appearing in the scene.

If you plan on tracing your animation in the Drawing view, enable the light table to display all the layers in your project.
