CLIP STUDIO PAINT Version 1.8.4 release notes (11/29/2018)

Main updates in Version 1.8.4

*Features marked with [EX] or [PRO] can only be used in EX or PRO.

Animation features have had a major update.

You can now add audio files to the timeline for sound effects or background music.

  1. 2D camera features have been added. Layers and animations folders can be stored inside 2D camera folders, which can be used to add camera movement effects. Using the [Object] tool, you can move the transformation frame (camera field of view) on the canvas to add camera movement.
  2. You can now carry out edits using keyframes on the [Timeline] palette. You can register edits such as camera movement, layer transformations, layer opacity, and audio volume to keyframes.
  3. When [Enable keyframes on this layer] is turned on, you can use the [Object] tool and [Move layer] tool to transform or move layers and layer folders. A keyframe will be added to the [Timeline] palette in each case.
  4. When you use the [Object] tool to select a 2D camera folder or a layer with keyframes enabled, you can edit settings such as camera movement, layer transformations, and layer opacity using the [Tool Property] palette. You can input numerical values to allow for detailed adjustments.
  5. Clip Studio Paint now supports audio files.

The command [Colorize (Technology preview)] has been added to the [Edit] menu. This feature automatically colorizes line art. You can choose from several colorize options: [Colorize all], [Use hint image and colorize], and [Use more advanced settings].*1*2

A [Remove tones (technology preview)] feature has been added. With this feature, you can remove screentones from raster layers that have both main lines and screentones, leaving only the main lines. Alternatively, you can convert the screentones to grayscale. With this function, you can avoid moiré caused when scanning black-and-white images, and more easily convert black-and-white manga and comics to color. EX *1*2
