So I’m not sure why this is the case, but the latest batch of questions sent to the ms4d Formspring account have been answered, but have not mirrored over here.
So, if you’ve recently asked a question, but don’t see it here, make sure to check the ms4d Formspring page at http://Formspring.me/ms4d
The first thing to check is to see if you’ve rasterized a panel ruler layer (Select the Panel Ruler Layer. Then, Main Menu -> Layer -> Rasterize Layer).
Also, make sure that the rasterized layer is set as a Finish layer. - Open the Layer Properties palette (Main Menu -> Window -> Properties). - Click the Detailed View button (if it’s currently set to Simple View). - If it’s not selected, click the Finish radio button (under Output Attributes).
I don’t have any tutorials, and because of my current schedule, I can’t work on one in the near future.
However, I would highly recommend checking out Mario Kluser’s series of video tutorials. In there, there are a few videos regarding using Vector Layers in Manga Studio. I know he has one comparing Vector to Raster layers.
You can check his videos out at http://mario-live.com/ You can use the search field on his site to find annoy videos on vectors.
Unfortunately, no. All vector layers do in Manga Studio is allow you to export to a raster image at (practically) any size. So, you could conceivably work on a small canvas and export to a much larger size. But the image will be rasterized.
Not that I have experienced. Keep in mind that it’s now been a couple of years since I last used Manga Studio 3, but it seems that the vector work you can do, and the tools used for vectors haven’t changed much between versions 3 and 4.
You can see what color you’re using on a particular layer by looking at the foreground color (located at the bottom of the Tools Palette).
If you’re on a Color (32-Bit Layer), you can then change the color you’re working with by double-clicking on the foreground color, and then selecting a new color from the Colors Palette.
If you’re on a 1-bit (black), 2-bit (black/white), or 8-bit layer (gray layer), you’re only working with the one color (black, or whatever color you chose
Select the Object Selector (O on your keyboard), and select your Panel Ruler Layer.
Then, you can either click and drag along all four points/walls of the panel, or click on one wall, while holding down the Ctrl key (that will select all the points/walls).
Finally, either select Ruler -> Delete Selected Points from the main Menu, or press Ctrl+Delete on your keyboard.
That’s not something you can do in Manga Studio, unfortunately.
Update: It was pointed out to me that I didn’t specify which version of Manga Studio I was talking about, when I said you couldn’t blend colors.
In Manga Studio Debut, you don’t have the ability to blend colors.
If you have EX, there is a Blend Tool available. This is located in the Tools palette under the Stamp Tool. Just press and hold the Stamp tool button, and additional options will appear, including
