using the light table

I’m using Toon Boom to test and time my rough animation (pencil and paper). So I scan the drawings and import them into tb as jpegs in the image column.

I need to use the light table to see drawings in two image element columns at once for a scene with multiple characters. Can anyone help? I can’t get it to work. Nothing happens when I turn on the light table.

The problem may be that the scanned image includes the white area of the paper, which you can’t see through. I’m assuming you imported these images to an image element? If so, use photoshop or some other image editor to apply an alpha channel–delete the white paper and have a transparent bg. The other option is to use import and vectorize.

Hope that helps.
