Layer blending modes have been added for a wider range of expression styles.
New blending modes :
Vivid light, Linear light, Pin light, Hard mix, Exclusion, Darker color, Lighter color, Division, Hue, Saturation, Color, Brightness
The set layer is simply placed on top of the layer below.
Blends by replacing colors in the image depending on the colors in the set layer.
The less bright color values are subtracted from the brighter color values and the difference is displayed, but the colors are blended with a lower contrast.
The hue of the set layer is applied while maintaining the brightness and saturation of the layer below.
The RGB values of the layer below are divided by the brightness of the set layer.
The brightness of the set layer is applied while maintaining the hue and saturation values of the layer below.
An effect source can now be set for the brush opacity. You can create a brush where the pen pressure is set as the effect source, so that the opacity changes with the pen pressure.
Applications and canvases can be displayed in the resolution of the retina display.
Canvases are displayed at a higher resolution in the retina display than in previous versions. As a result, processes such as transformation operations and 3D layer editing processes may take longer than usual.
The file formats of 3D characters, 3D backgrounds, etc. that can be loaded in CLIP STUDIO PAINT have been changed. This is accompanied by an improvement of the functions and operability of 3D layers, including fast view for 3D editing, rendering settings and improvements to the manipulators. 3D materials in software from Ver. 1.6.0 onward are in the new data format.
*3D materials that you have added or created by yourself prior to this update can still be used, but they will be handled on a different layer from 3D data in the new format, and the two types cannot be linked. General 3D data such as lwo and obj files will be loaded in the same layer as the new format and can be operated in the same way as the new format.
Saving of monochrome layers has been optimized. The file size of monochrome works is now 10-20% smaller than standard works.
*We plan on making CLIP files even more user-friendly in future, including further lightening of CLIP files containing color layers and removal of caching for high speed displays to optimize commissioning.
Actual settings such as line color and width can now be viewed in the preview while drawing figures, etc.
[Selection] has been added to [Output range] in the dialog displayed when the [File] menu -> [Export (Single Layer)] is selected. A rectangular image with the width and height of the selected area can be exported.
Various functions have been added for easier operation of the animation function timeline: the view can be split into two levels from the timeline palette menu, a light table can be operated and there are functions such as cel specification, Play/Stop and playback settings.
Animation has been added to the material types. Clips selected in the [Timeline] palette can be registered as animation materials.
Movie files in MP4 format (extension: mp4) can now be exported from [Export animation].
Several initial settings have been changed, such as the software interface color and undo count.
If you have never changed the preferences, the new values may be applied after updating. These can be reverted to the previous settings by changing the settings.
