Hey folks! Here's a question that continually baffles me: when I'm toying around with building up a picture, I like to play around my transparency modes. I'll mutz around until I come up with something that I want to play with as a PASeq. When I try to play back the PASeq from scratch (i.e. I delete all of the layers and press the animate button in the PASeq window) the animation builds itself up but the layer transparency modes don't return and the view layer mode shows current layer only as opposed to view all layers. Two fold question. How do I get the view layers to display all layers when I'm playing back a PASeq and how do I get the layer transparency modes to remain how I left them before I start playing back the PASeq (is there a way to embed them in the PASeq?)

In the Paint Action Sequence Configuration preferences dialog you can set whether the layer info plays back or not when you play back the paseq (Layer Track popup). When its off it all plays back into the current layer. when on it plays back into the layer you originally recorded it in and the view will adjust to what it was when you recorded the paseq.
I followed the above directions and was able to get all layers on at the time of playback; but it doesn't playback the layer compositing that I wanted.
How do I insert layer compositing into a PAS?

AutoPaint Frame Continuity / Fixed Random Seed

What would be necessary to to make AutoPaint strokes look more consistent from frame to frame in an animation? (Or even when re-drawing the same frame for that matter?)A fixed random seed for Auto Paint would help probably. I checked out different types of "Path Start / Generator", but I could not find the right option.The best would be if that random seed can be animated, so it's possible to have more continuous strokes and more flickering ones.A hint would be very much appreciated, thanks a…See More
