well, there is actually to ways.

way 1!

put in your outline sticks, and arrange it how you want to to be, okay, click next frame, now move whatever and click next frame,

now, go back 2 frames, not the frame that you just animated, the one before that!

this one

and put the fills in, continue like that, and you have onion skin with filled in backgrounds!

Way 2!

make your filled background, and take a screenshot of it, put it in paint, and make it so you can't see anything apart from teh pivot BG, save it, and save as the background in pivot, automatic background!

but, you can only have one scene then.....

yeah, there you go!

Nothing I didn't already know. Might help VERY new users, but it's nothing you couldn't figure out on your own.


Take the advertisement link out of your sig drag. I'm too lazy to write a post and a pm.

I can usually comprehend broken english, but this didn't make sense at all.

Whatever, I think I can get the basics of it. Sounds like it's useless for a moving background.

The screen shot had nothing to do with the tut.

You suck, can.

yes it has to do a lot with the tut, look at the frames shown in the timeline at the top, they point is witch frame is chosen.

it wasnt that well structured, but I understood it, it's just that you may have to read it..........

Yes, reading the text may help you understand it.

I never thought of that.

The fact that i didnt understand doesent meen i didnt read the text...Also i did read the text because if i didnt it wouldnt be a fair review(post) for the person who made this tutorial.

EDIT: And I have just read it again and i understand it a little more but still, its not very well put together.:/

Easier way: Use backgrounds. At one point in my Thief animation I actually took a screenshot of all the Pivot-made props that I placed in the scene and used it as a background so I could still have onion skinning over it.
