The Color Group notion
In TVPaint Animation, you have the possibility to organize your layers by using pre-defined group. By assigning the same Color group to several layers, it will be easier to globally work on them. You can download the John project to follow the steps below.
Click on the icon in the first column of the timeline to modify the group where you will put your layer.
The below menu appears :
It allows you to choose a group (other than the grey color, assigned by default to all layers) by checking one of the colors of the below list. You can then have this kind of Timeline:
- On the bottom left corner of your Timeline, you will note a Color Group button.
By clicking on it, you will open the Color Group panel, as shown below. You can also open it via the Windows > Show > Color Group main menu.

If you assigned colors just like the previous example, the Refresh ( ) button will let you display the groups currently used in your project.
