Using Onion Skinning

Normally the playhead shows one frame at a time—the frame it's placed on. As you play the Timeline the Stage displays the content of one frame at a time forming your animation. Onion Skinning mode allows you to view multiple frames simultaneously. This is useful for fine-tuning your animation because you can see the content on the frames immediately preceding and following the active frame.

Activate Onion Skinning

Open a Timeline with a multiple frame animation.

Click the Onion Skin Mode button in the Status bar.

Onion skin markers appear in the area above the frame numbers and the area of the range of frames selected dims. The frames that precede the active frame and the frames that follow appear in varying degrees of shading on the Stage, becoming lighter the further they are from the active frame.
