Clean-up the sequence
Once the drawing has been scanned, it is possible to:
*Delete white or gray pixels to imitate the use of a true animation overlay (which is something you’ll have to do in case you want to color your drawing or use a background with it).
or will result in:
*Clean up your drawings in order to correct rough pencil lines.
You can use the Scan Cleaner function to accomplish the two aforementioned operations in a few clicks. It is to be found in the Image menu:
As you can see, this tool comes with two different settings:
-The Scan Cleaner (soft) function will preserve lighter pencil lines.
-The Scan Cleaner (stronger) function will preserve stronger pencil lines.
You can also use the FX > Color > Scan Cleaner Black and White effect in case the previously mentioned functions don’t give you the results you expect. FX stacks will be discussed in lesson 12.
