Grease Pencil#

This mode lets you adjust the timing of a Grease Pencil object’s animation frames. It is especially useful for blocking out shots.


Channels Region#

The Channels region shows the Grease Pencil object in light blue and its layers in gray. Layers have the following settings:


The layer’s opacity.

Use Mask

Toggle the layer’s masks on or off.

Onion Skinning

Toggle onion skinning.

Visibility (eye icon)

Toggle layer visibility in the viewport and in render.

Show all keyframes (checkbox)

When unchecked, the layer gets frozen in its current state, and moving to a different keyframe will no longer change its appearance.

Lock (padlock)

Locked layers can’t be edited.

Main Region#

The keyframes can be manipulated like any other data in the Dope Sheet. Interpolated keyframes (alias breakdowns) are visualized as smaller light blue points.
