Dear BT users

I am practicing how to use sketch layers.

I loaded the EPS created by Affinity Designer into Bixelangelo and created the EPS for BT.

After some trial and error, I found that I could change the drawing order of the sketch layers in the order of the layers in Affinity Designer. (Difference between test1-1.eps and test1-2.eps)

I want to draw 5 stars at the same time instead of 1 by 1 in test1-3.eps. I grouped the layers in Affinity Designer, but I couldn't draw five stars at the same time. I changed the export method of Bixelangelo and the drawing order property of the sketch layer, but I still can't draw 5 at the same time.

How can I draw 5 stars at the same time, as shown in the red frame in the photo?

Is copying sketch layer 4 times too simple a answer?

I think I would also use 5 sketch layers, all using a picture of 1 star.

Thank you for your advice.

I think that's the best way for BT specialists to say that they should use multiple stars.

However, I thought it would be simpler and easier to create with one sketch layer created with Bixelangelo than to stack five sketch layers.

I'm watching the show included in BixPack 2.
As shown in the photo, the drawing order of the left and right curves is synchronized.

Does it mean that the movements of five stars cannot be synchronized in one sketch layer like the BixPack2 show?

@Michel @ARMABIT

I understand that Bixelangelo does not currently have the ability to export sketch maps.

Is it correct to understand that BT's sketch layer is an alternative to Bixelangelo's sketch map?

If that's correct, do you need as many sketch layers as the lines to draw as many lines as in the photo? Like a 5 star ...

No, those are very different techniques.

The sketch layer renders a vector drawing in the EPS format.

A sketchmap is a bitmap (like a PNG) where every pixel does not describe a colour, but the time it must be made visible. It is rendered by a picture layer using the AdvancedMaterials\Sketchmap effect.

Both techniques have their advantages and disadvantages.

@ Michelle

I'm a little confused.

Sketch maps and sketch layers have different capabilities.

As a way to create a sketch map of old articles in the community
・ Use Bixel Angelo
・ Create your own app

Bixelangelo 5.1 does not have the ability to create sketch maps.

When I organize these ...

At this point, the only way to create a sketch map is to use an older version of Bixelangelo.

Is this understanding correct?
