Scripting Examples

Here is a replacement for the toggleOnionSkin function in the file. Instead of toggling Onion-Skin mode on and off, this toggles between no clone overlay and the last-used clone view mode.

# desired default clone view mode
clone_view_mode = fx.paint.View_Onion

def toggleOnionSkin():
    global clone_view_mode
    current_mode = fx.paint.cloneViewMode
    if current_mode == fx.paint.View_Normal:
        current_mode = clone_view_mode
        # save the current state for later
        clone_view_mode = current_mode
        current_mode = fx.paint.View_Normal
    fx.paint.cloneViewMode = current_mode

    # disable quick mode when doing this
    if fx.viewer.toolName == "Clone":
        cmds = ["translate", "rotate", "scale"]
        for c in cmds:
            if fx.viewer.queryTool(c) == "1":
                fx.viewer.toolCommand(c, False)
