Animate illustrations using keyframes and cameras by Mattlamp

Good morning! In some of the last tutorials I used the keyframe feature for a simple animation, but I didn’t go into detail on how to use it and how to utilize the 2d camera folder.
In this tutorial, I’m going to give you a detailed introduction to the keyframe animation tool and show you some practical examples. Please use it usefully!

Video tutorial summary

The basic function is the creation of keyframes that can be animated in a simple way using the support of the software.

Animate the traditional way with just 4 frames. You can add other complex movements using the keyframes in the animation folder. Otherwise it will be very boring.

Activate the key frame on that button.

You can modify the position, rotation, scale, and opacity. Both modifiers with object tools and in the tool properties panel.

Initially you create a new keyframe, go a bit in the timeline, modify the properties and the frame will be created automatically.
Clip Studio Paint calculates the middle frame!


There are three types of interpolation to calculate intermediate frames.
Fixed: Keeps the previous value until another frame appears. There is no conversion.
Linear: Switches between the start and end values ​​at a constant speed.
Smooth: Use curves to create more natural movements.
Generally, soft interpolation is used.

Reliable animation

To create a more natural animation, you can modify the interpolation curve between frames using a graphical editor.
In this way, we can create anticipation, inertia and relaxation.

Object storage

We recommend using file objects to create a puppet animation or to modify the rotation point of a layer.
There are some great tutorials out there that explain how. I recommend some
