Draw progressively?
on Jan 5, 2017 at 1:05:16 am

I'm working on a video which I've imported to PS and added a blank layer on top which I draw on. So far it's been effective that i draw on one frame and then move to the next frame and start fresh, but now I'm trying to achieve something else and want to know if it's possible.

Can I start drawing on a frame, then move to the next frame and have what I started still be there so I can add on (not an onion skin reference, actually be there). This way during video playback, you actually see the drawing happen over time?

Hi Bobby, how exactly are you drawing? If you use the Stroke effect you can draw the final shape path and then have it draw on over time - or do you have a particular look that you are going for?

So far I've been exporting to photoshop and drawing freehand using a wacom tablet on a separate blank layer.

I was hoping to continue a process similar but just have the frames progress. Is that how it would work with the stroke effect?

It would be helpful to see a screen shot or two. We can then better figure out what you're trying to do.
