I’ve been cartooning for several years using, among other things, the program GIMP. However, I’m completely new to animation; I even had to Google the words “keyframe” and “inbetween” to find out what they meant. Consequently, I may be trying to do things with Pencil2D that it is not intended to do.
On my first “experiment”, I had one object pass behind another object – I used two layers. When I attempted to do a color fill on the “nearer” object, the actual fill appeared on the “further” layer. Both layers were bitmap. I don’t know if this is me trying to do something the program is not intended to do or what.
I like using layers and have had single cell cartoons with 20-30 layers. Am I correct in assuming I can use multiple layers in Pencil2D? And if so, how many?
