Hey guys, all good? Gugarts is speaking here. And in today’s video I’ll be showing you everything I know about Vector Layer, at ClipStudioPaint. I hope you like it, leave your Like, and let’s go to class! First, I’m going to show you how to create a vector layer. It’s very simple, here in the layers tab just click on that option. New Vector Layer. You can also create it by clicking up here by clicking on Layer, New Layer, Vector Layer, Then it will open a window with some settings for you to place and OK. And ready the layer is created. Now I will show the differences when working with a normal layer, a raster layer. Selecting the layer and transforming its size you can see that there is a variation of the stroke and also the quality of the layer (line) it ends up being changed after the transformation is applied. And when you resize it back to normal size you end up losing the original quality of the design. This does not happen with the vector layer because it works differently. I can transform it, apply it, and even then it will preserve the original quality. I performed this transformation using the normal selection and transformation tool. But if I use the Operation tool and the Object sub tool I can transform it in a different way in relation to maintaining the thickness of the line. In this option if it is checked, it will scale according to the size of the transformation the stroke thickness This can be interesting in some cases. However, if you leave the option unchecked, the traction will become constant. So, it can get squeezed in some cases and end up losing definition. When selecting a vector object with the Operation tool We can vector your vector line, however if it is necessary to view without the tool it is possible. Just click on the menu, View, Show Vector Paths, and we have four options The first one will show all the paths of only the selected layers. The second, all of all vector layers. The third will show the final and initial control points. And the fourth will show all the control points. Later in the video I will show you more tools that serve to control these points and these lines. The Operation Tool, Sub Tool Object is widely used for manipulating various elements within the program. I will show you, then, all the parameters of this tool and show what each one of them does. The first option allows you to select different vector lines, in different layers. With it checked, just click on it and changing the layer you are working on will be automatic, referring to where the vector line is. This other option, when selected, serves to control 3D elements simply clicking and moving to the position you want. This other option is for when you are creating a special rule. In the case of parallel line parameters. After created and using the Operation Tool you can change its direction by clicking and dragging. This option, when selected, allows you to select multiple elements. Being the entire object itself, or all control points. Resulting in a different control. And with that last option selected, we can after select, control just by clicking, not on the object itself but within its selection square. Varying for all types of layers, or 2D camera when it comes to animation. Here we can mark which types of layers will be selectable by this tool. In this option we can change the color of the selected line. And this is the thickness of your line. Here we can even change the type of your stroke, referring to the type of Brush Shape that you have registered in your library. And remembering, this option here serves to maintain the scale of your line when you are resizing an object. Now we can check out the various control modes that this tool offers. At first, I can control the control points scale and rotation. In the second, I control only the control points. In the third, rotation and scale. In the fourth, only the scale. Remembering that by selecting (holding down) the Shift key, you can maintain the proportions. And don’t end up flattening or stretching the object too much. Here we only control the rotation. Free Transform is one of the ones I use the most, because it allows me to control the independent points, distort the object, scale and rotate. Distort is very similar to Free Transform However it has a type of Snap that keeps the line in a certain position. With this option (Skew) we can tilt the object. And with that change your perspective. This tool also serves to control the speech bubbles created by the program. Which are recognized as a kind of vector layer. And here, as we can see, there appears a notion option to change the fill color. This tool also serves to control a text layer Allowing you to change the scale, rotate or tilt. And as you can see in the tool’s property we have new options to have a better control of a text layer. When working with a vector layer There is no need to keep changing tools so much. Just hold down the Ctrl key, which you will call the Operation Tool temporarily while the key is pressed. So you can make small edits. You can also use the Operation Tool to copy and paste objects. Just hold the Ctrl key, press C, and press V then to paste, So just move the object And then you can release the Ctrl key. Due to the way the program works when copying and pasting an object This can have some complications when working with animation. But in this way that I showed, using the Vector Layer, copy and paste works without problems. Now let’s talk a little bit about the vector rubber. Selecting the eraser tool, and the Vector sub tool we can use a special rubber for vector layers. There are 3 ways of working using vector rubber. Erasing the element she selects. Erasing until the intersection of the lines. And erasing the entire selected vector line. This can speed up a lot when making a hair or something more complex. Now let’s see the last tool and its sub tools for controlling and manipulating a vector line. The Control Line Tool. The first, control point, with several parameters to be able to work. Be moving the points. Add more points. Delete the stitches. Change the shape of your corner. Adjust the stitch thickness individually. Change its density. Or cut the stitch. The second is the clamp tool. Varying on controls, your point fixed or loose at the beginning and end of the line. The intensity that the clamp will twist the line. The scope of the effect. Also represented by the brush size And here, with this option checked it will create more points As you bend the line to smooth any distortion you make. With this option we can simplify the number of points on the line. Making it easier to control. Or softer. However, if we overdo it, we can leave the line a little inconsistent. Or even very artificial. With this option we can connect the vector lines. And here we can change the thickness of the line in several ways. The first increases the thickness of the line. And the second, decreases. The third, increases in scale. And the fourth, decreases in scale. The fifth option a lot for a fixed size. And leaving this option checked, the effect will occur for the entire vector line. Regardless of whether you clicked it all or not. With this option you can redraw a vector line. Drawing over own line. This is not creating a new line, it is just editing the line that has already been made. However adding more points if necessary. And in this last option you can redraw the thickness of the line, according to the pressure of your pen. And lastly, there is also the possibility to convert a raster layer to a vector. To do this, just click on the layer with the right button, select the option, Convert Layer, Select the parameters, And give OK. Now that the layer has been converted to a vector It is already possible to use the tools that I presented here earlier. So it is much easier to edit the points and lines. When converting a drawing to complex to vector, the lines may not be very close to the original. Then adjustments will be required in the parameters and also editions with the tools I presented. Well folks, the video will end here and I hope you enjoyed it. I know it ended up getting a little too technical. However I found it necessary to pass on all this information. I hope you can adapt this to your workflow, because working with vectors inside ClipStudio is very interesting. I thank everyone who is supporting my work and a big hug. Said!
