I’m very new to Wick Editor. I was wondering how to make a clip work. For example, I onion-skinned a little guy walking in place. I clicked the “make a clip” button beforehand, and just to be sure, clicked it after. Now I’m wondering how to import it into another file on a separate layer and tween the little guy so that he’s also moving across the screen. Is this possible?
Hi @ProfoundlyAverage, it is possible on Adobe animate but I don’t think it is possible on wick editor because of all the code it needs to make it work.
What is the clip function for, then? I don’t know how it’s used.
It’s for grouping things and tweening those groups or using them in code as a single object. They have their own timeline so you can manipulate their own timeline in code. Things like that.
oh now i see
HI, I saw the tweening tutorial, but don’t know how to make it work for this.
What steps do you take to create a clip, and how do you use it? (Or, which tutorial is it in?)
Also, can I upload an mp4 I made, to show you what I mean?
So to create a clip, I posted these steps in the other thread! Let me know if these help.
- draw a placeholder
- Convert that placeholder to a clip.
- Copy the frames of the animation
- Edit the clip’s timeline (Double click on it, or use the button on the side)
- Then, paste the frames into the object’s timeline.
- delete the placeholder
Ah, I think I need to see a video…shoot! I’m not sure how to copy and paste frames. Do you mean to copy and paste the images you’ve drawn for each frame? Can you copy and paste a bunch of frames at one? Also, I don’t know what you mean by editing the clip’s timeline…
I created one file with a background, then created a separate file with a walking person. I copied and pasted each separate image from the walking person file into the background picture file, advancing it a little each time, but it took over an hour to do. I’m not sure how to use the clip function to make it any faster
