A Few Questions

Hi guys, in these questions, I am specifically looking at the drawing tools. I want to learn more about the animation/storytelling later on. So I was reviewing a heck lot of tutorials and documentation on Toon Boom Harmony and Storyboard Pro, and I am more interested in Storyboard for the time being. Coming from the software, Affinity Designer, I hope I can get these questions answered.

  1. How do you create cartoon shading? I noticed this question was asked about Harmony, and I can see that the No Stroke Tool is not in Storyboard Pro. In Affinity, I would have objects already “clipped” inside another, and then anything I paint on top would stay within the boundaries.

  2. Where can I manage different effects such as blurs, glows, and shadows?

  3. Is there a way to crop vectors? For example, let’s say I has a scene that shows a picture hanging up in a room of a background. Is there a way to crop everything in the picture rather than having them bleed out and without using the Cutter Tool?

I look forward to your response, and happy holidays!
