Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video The Polyline tool and shapes, part of Toon Boom Harmony Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Now we are going to look…at the polyline tool.…The polyline tool and the family beneath it are…the line, rectangle, elipse and polyline.…So I'm going to start with the line.…I'm going to hide this little face.…We're going to clean him up in a little bit.…I'm going to make a new drawing here and…we'll just draw with the line tool.…So, obviously a bit too skinny so let's…thicken them up a little bit.…As you can see, it's kind of hard to make things snap…together so let's go to Tools, Properties…and down here you can see we have Snap to Contour,…Snap and Align and Snap to Grid.…
So let's try Snap to Contour.…Now you can see we are joining up beautifully so…this is the kind of tool that you're really going to…need when you're doing these precise,…clean up passes over characters.…You can see that little blue circle,…that blue circle you might see flickering right there.…You can feel it snap, that's great.…And now we can go to the contour editor and move…these around and you know, this is great.…Those are really good joins.…
