View Full Version : Stencil visibility

08-08-2011, 10:23 PM
Sometimes i think stencils get in the way of seeing how am i doing, especially when i only apply some fine layers of airbrush paint. So i been waiting for a way to hide the stencil, but not lose its effect.

I found one!

If you hold H or V you can work without the stencil getting in the way, but that can lead to trouble navigating and makes the use of other keys awkward. But if you hold H or V and drag the canvas with left click, the stencils remain hidden as long as you hide, then unhide them. :cool:

I originally posted this in the technical / technical but i now realize it needs to be put here in the tips 'n tricks... Sorry for doubling it!:D

It would be still very nice, to have an adjustable level of opacity for stencils. Something for everyone's taste.

Thanks for the hint anyway :)

Oh, that's great! This trick perfectly works! Thank you, tuszek!

Agreed Stencil opacity control is needed. It's pretty hard to see through those stencils, mostly when you're trying to lay down a really subtle texture.
