Please help me!!

Hi sergioO

Here is a link to the Toon Boom Animate videotutorials, this one is about importing Photoshop files with layers:

If you want to vectorize here is another one:

You will find more tutorials on the page with great information on how to…

If your artwork is on one layer with white BG and you want to import as a bitmap with transparent BG, then while still in Photoshop.
Take the magic wand and select the white BG. Then go to Top menu
_Select - select similar, then press delete to get rid of the white BG.
Deselect and do nescessary touch up.
Then save or export, for later import in TBA.

Best regards

I really appreciate


I’m curious: When you import your single layer BMP of an image that’s surrounded by a transparent area (I assume it’s a PNG), which of the transparency settings do you choose? Straight, clamp to alpha?


Hi John

I never use clamp to alpha and have no experience with it.
Premultiplied with white , gives better result on white or very light BG
Premultiplied with black, gives better result on black or very dark BG
Straight gives no preference and function with all BG

Best regards

Thanks Ivar.
