Modifying a Pencil Texture

You can modify and animate a pencil texture's position using the Colour-Override module and a Peg module. This lets you create a shaky line style which is a very popular design style. The main issue with this style is that it works well in traditional and tradigital animation, when the artist draws the line differently on each drawing, but it does not work in cut-out animation where the same drawing is used for the entire animation. The same issue happens when the same drawing is held for more than a few frames. The line moves during the animation, but stops moving during the drawing hold, which looks bad.

With the Colour-Override module, you can animate the position of the pencil line texture independently from the drawing exposure. Even if a drawing's exposure is held over several frames, the line will move.
