Painting Several Layers Simultaneously
You can use the Paint tool to fill drawings in several layers simultaneously. When you set up the Paint tool to work on several layers, if you click on a colour zone in the current drawing to fill it, it will fill any colour zone located where you clicked in the drawings in the other layers as well.
- Do one of the following:
- In the Timeline view, move the red Timeline playhead to the frame where all the drawings you want to paint are exposed.
- In the Timeline or Xsheet view, select one of the drawings you want to paint.
- In the Tools toolbar, select the Paint tool.
- In the Tool Properties view, make sure the Apply to All Visible Layers button is toggled off.
In the Timeline or Xsheet view, select all the layers you want to paint simultaneously.TIPS
NOTE If Light Table is enabled, the selected layers will appear fully opaque. This indicates that the currently selected tool can work on all selected layers simultaneously.
- To select multiple layers, press and hold the Ctrl (Windows/Linux) or ⌘ (macOS) key, then click on each layer you want to select.
- In the Timeline or Xsheet view, you can select a contiguous series of layers by clicking on the first layer you want to select, then, while holding Shift, clicking on the last layer you want to select. Every layer in-between will also be selected.
At this point, you can paint artwork in all of the selected layers.
- In the Camera view, click in an area where the colour zones for the drawings in the selected layers overlap each other to fill them simultaneously.
