The recent release of CLIP STUDIO PAINT 1.5.4 includes some awesome new animation features!

These new animation features are based on traditional animation techniques referred to as cel animation or frame-by-frame animation. Artists draw individual cels (frames), which act as transparent sheets that can be layered, and create the illusion of movement when the series of cels is played as a continuous sequence. CLIP STUDIO PAINT’S 1.5.4 update also includes a timeline, light table function, onion skin display and multiple export options that help support these new animation features.


Steps to creating a moving illustration.

For more information on how to create your own animations in CLIP STUDIO PAINT 1.5.4, please refer to the “Start Up Manual” included in your download or on your disk, please see pages 228 to 257.
