Trace Images to Grease Pencil¶
The Trace Images to Grease Pencil tool traces a black and white image and generates Grease Pencil strokes. If the image is not black and white, it will be internally converted. For better results, convert the images manually to black and white. Also try to keep the resolution of the image small; high resolutions can produce very dense strokes.
Add an Image Empty to the scene.
Run Trace Images to Grease Pencil.
- Target Object
The Grease Pencil object name. If left empty, a new Grease Pencil object will be created.
The thickness of the generated Grease Pencil strokes.
Resolution of the generated Grease Pencil strokes i.e. how many control points the stroke will have. A higher resolution will preserve more detail from the original image.
The object scale applied to the generated Grease Pencil object.
Recreates the stroke geometry with a predefined length between points. Smaller values will require more points to recreate the stroke, while larger values will result in fewer points needed to recreate the curve. A value of 0 disables stroke sampling.
- Color Threshold
Determine the Luminance threshold above which strokes are generated.
- Turn Policy
Determines how to resolve ambiguities during decomposition of an image into paths.
Prioritizes to connect black (foreground) components.
Prioritizes to connect white (background) components.
Always take a left turn.
Always take a right turn.
Prioritizes to connect the color (black or white) that occurs least frequently in the local neighborhood of the current position.
Prioritizes to connect the color (black or white) that occurs most frequently in the local neighborhood of the current position.
Determines if the image being traced is a single image or image sequence.
The image empty is a single image or the current frame of an image sequence.
The image empty is an Image Sequence.
- Start at Current Frame
When enabled, Start the tracing process at the Current image frame.
