Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video The Pencil tool, part of Toon Boom Harmony Essential Training.
- [Narrator] Let's take a look at the pencil tool…'cause it's very powerful, so, this is the icon,…and select tool properties,…let's make some different pencil strokes.…So we'll start with pencil three,…this is pressure-sensitive, and we'll fatten it up…so we can really see it, and, in the first frame,…we'll draw…like this, and then we'll do a fixed thickness stroke…which is a different family…so it doesn't matter how much pressure I apply…it's always going to look the same.…And let's try the tapered stencil.…
Fatten 'em up again.…This will taper no matter how much pressure I put on it…and we'll do the charcoal as well,…it's a nice texture brush.…Okay so now one thing to notice is…that each of the strokes is separate…so we can move them around, and, that's fine for what it is,…we can still paint inside with these…unlike in other programs…but let's see if we want to flatten them on to one layer.…So we use this tool here, flatten.…Going to go through each one.…
And what you'll see is it really hasn't worked…for any of them, apart from the fixed thickness stroke,…
