Onion skinning is a feature of HUE Animation Studio which lets you see a ‘ghostly’ image of your previous captured frame over your live video stream from the camera. This is helpful for lining up your models accurately, and for avoiding problems if your set is knocked or a prop falls over. You can always see exactly where your models were standing previously at any time.
The ghostly images won’t show up in your finished video; all you will be left with is smooth, error-free stop motion animation.
If you do not want to use the onion skinning feature, it can be turned off. It is also possible to set the transparency effect higher or lower to suit your individual movie.
Please see our tutorial for more information about this feature.
