Background layer

Ricardo Roehe 3 years ago • updated by NNW 4 weeks ago 4

How about a layer specific for background?
Today, if you change the background, it changes for all layers. It would be very useful to have an opaque BG layer and the drawing on separate transparent layers, on top of that.

Hey, what you are requesting is essentially already available by using a layer as your specific frame background. However, can't import a background image into a layer. This is something that we will add soon. Thanks.

Yes, importing image as background would be nice.
Using a layer as background is problematic, because it does not apply to other frames - just the current one.

Being able to draw backgrounds directly inside FlipaClip would be nice, but being able to import a background image created using another app would do the job as well.

I am trying to change the background for my sons cartoon but only for the current slide. He wants to go from inside the house to outside without having to create a whole new cartoon. Does the whole cartoon have to be only in one set background?

Easiest solution would be t add a new layer on top of the background layer and do that background for that one frame there. If you need it for more frames, there's always the possibility to change background and export the whole animation 2 times and then merge them in any video editing programme later
