Adding Snapshot Markers
By default, only the first frame of each panel is visible in the PDF file you export. Sometimes, you may need to display a specific frame or several frames from a panel. For example, on a panel that has a layer or camera movement. If you want to specify which frames in a panel will be visible in a PDF file, you must add snapshot markers to the panels.
The adding of snapshots is especially useful when you make changes to the camera position in 3D space. If the camera is not taking a shot that is representative of your scene at the beginning of the panel, you can select the keyframe of the panel that has the camera in the right position before you take the snapshot.
- In the Timeline view, select the panel to which you want to add a snapshot marker.
- Position the play head to the exact position where you want to add the snapshot.
- Do one of the following:
- Select Storyboard > Add Snapshot.
- Right-click the panel and select Add Snapshot.
The Snapshot marker, a blue arrow, appears in the Timeline view.
- Repeat the previous steps to add additional snapshot markers to the panel.
- To reposition snapshot markers, drag them along the Timeline.
