Everything Using the Light Table T-SBFND-008-005 The light table is used to preview the previous and subsequent active layers. It is useful to see the other layers when designing or cleaning up your storyboard. When the light table is activated, all layers apart from the currently selected one are shown in washed-out colours in the Stage and Camera views and when using the layer tools. How to turn on the light table Select View > Light Table. The drawings for the other layers are displayed as washed-out colours in the Stage view.
