Another thing we learnt in Toonboom was Overlay, Line lay, Colour Lay and underlay. All of this these are used to make the animation process more controlled. For example:-
- Underlay Is used for rough animation/animatic. (Vector).
- Line lay is used for clean and crisp line work. (Vector).
- Colour lay is used to as its name implied colour in the line art. (Bitmap).
- Overlay am not really sure on what that id for. (Bitmap).
So in class we ended up using the lay things to practices. I used the lay thing to animate a drop of water. I started off using the underlay to animate the rough for the water dropping. I thin used the line lay to draw the clean line using the pen. Lastly, I used the colour lay to colour in the line art.
Motion: Is something that can movie but also controlled.
Locomotion: Is something that can move but can not be controlled.
Using Toonboom’s Underlay, Linelay, Colourlay and Overlay was an annoyance, my reason why is becasue I could never get rid of the rouge animation even doe I tried to.
