Chapter 8: Introduction

The Paint node is mainly used in large productions where there is an Ink and Paint or Colour Stylist team. The Paint node includes the Drawing and Colour views as well as drawing tools. By using this node the Ink and Paint team does not need to learn the entire application, but can focus on the Ink and Paint process.

The Paint node can only be used with a connection to the Harmony database, unlike other Harmonynodes which can be used as a standalone application. To start the ink and paint process, you need to first fill in your scene’s exposure sheets and import the drawings that need to be coloured.

Refer to the Harmony Xsheet and Scan Guides to learn more about the previous steps of the production.

This guide is divided as follows:

Design and Drawing Tools
Colour Styling
Ink and Paint
