Today I got asked by a user of Manga Studio how it comes that her ink becomes transparent once she changes the color of it. The cause is a common mistake and this video is the solution to this problem.
Here is a over view how your ink will behave on different layers:
- Raster layer black and white 2 bit: If you choose another color than black it still will be black but it will become transparent. The degree of the transparency will vary depending on the color you’ve chosen.
- Raster layer 32 bit color: Of course just the color will change and it will not have any effect on the transparency when you choose another color.
- Vector layer black and white 2 bit: No matter what color you choose. the ink stays black. Exception: white!
- Vector layer 32 bit color: You can choose whatever color you want without effecting the transparency of the ink.
I hope this helps.
