  1. You can use vector layers when making contours by dragging the line tool, adjusting the “snap” you can easily get one continuous line without break.
    Software will try to weld/snap ends of the lines together. This is very useful and fast.
    Also you can use “outline” effect found in “layer properties”, also quick way to outline an object, this line however cannot be edited (thickness,shape and position).

  2. Haven’t fully watched it yet, but I intend to as soon as possible. Looks like the whole video is packed with info.

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I missed this one drat it all, but the video and links made up for it. David, your story is incredible, and there was a lot of usefull information in this webinar. Thanks.

    1. Thanks so much! Glad you like Dreamside. I’m creating a follow-up video that will address unanswered questions from this Webinar (we got a lot). I’ll be hosting the video on my channel so stay tuned.

    1. @Vivian Diggs Vivian, if you look in the navigator tab (which can be opened by clicking “window” then “navigator” in the top menu), toward the bottom right is the flip horizontal button. Hover the mouse over the buttons until the context sensitive text reveals the right one. Manga also allows you to assign that button to the toolbar for easier access. Further, I believe you can assign the function to a hotkey, so you can just hit a button to make it flip.

  4. Hi, I have a question, I draw in manga studio, when I want to resize the drawing (i mean a big drawing to smaller one) pixels shrink. Drawing loses actual resolution. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.
