Inking using vector layers on manga studio 5 by martinacecilia Inking using vector layers on manga studio 5 by martinacecilia

Celsys expanded vector layers SO MUCH from the previous version of the software (manga studio EX4 or comic studio). It's now an incredibly helpful and powerful tool.

I'm using the japanese version of manga studio 5 (called Clip studio paint) with a fan translation so tools could have different names but everything should be fairly the same barren some personal settings.

WOW I'm so glad I bought Manga Studio, so much better tan PS for drawing IMO. Didn't know this thanks for the video.

LOVE Vector Layers! That's always how I ink realistic comics work, but they may be even MORE valuable if you do cartoons with the app.

Thank you. This vid has answered so many questions for me. I've been playing around with MS5 since I purchased it and I've been looking for some decent tutorials. I actually thought that the vector tools were somewhat limited, but you have pleasantly proved me wrong. ;)

Manga 5 vectors do not seem to have a function to change line colour - the only method I have discovered is by using the vector magnet to cover one line with another of a different colour. Does Clip Studio offer an alternative?

uhm, actually my version of MS5 does. but not with the eyedropper, you have to select it with the tool that resembles a little cube (operation-->object). Once you've selected the line (or multiple lines holding shift key) you change the color in the tool property tab. or in any of the color tabs (color slider or color set etc etc). that eyedropper thing is really annoying tho. I really hope they'll fix it.
