How to Create Layers & Move Up to Down in Alight Motion

A layer is a group of reusable components that are reusable under similar conditions. Layers are important for any design workflow because they are used to work on individual parts of the image while not affecting other parts. They allow you to edit your image, add text, change colors, put two images on the same page and much more without having to edit your original image.

For professional editing we need to move or adjust the layers at different times, for which we describe how to move the layers up and down and from left to right in Alight Motion. 

Create Three Layers

First you need to create three layers as needed, by following the procedure we have shown graphically below. 

  • Click on “+” sign
  • Create project
  • Click on “+” sign again and add minimum three shapes
  • Now you can see your added shapes in the timeline
  • Move the layers up and down to set the desired appearance in designing

Move Layers Up and Down

Here we check the actual method of moving layers step by step

  • Go to timeline
  • Go to right end of layers to move them
  • You can see a dashed line icon
  • Press and drag it
  • By pressing, background of layers will become blue highlighted
  • Before moving, the layers are in this order: “Top-Middle-Bottom”
  • After moving, the new order is: “Middle-Top-Bottom”
  • You can change order as per need

What is Layer Parenting

Layer parenting is a new feature that shows you how to activate your characters in parent – child relationships to make the animation process more fun and intuitive. It is a feature of premium apps now available in Alight Motion too. 

How to Parent Layers in Alight Motion?

  • There is two overlapping square icon on the top of screen
  • Click it
  • After that, other layers will appear 
  • Now select any layer as parent

How to Use Parenting

When you move the parent, the child moves the couple. Whenever you focus on the parent, the child revolves around the center of the parent layer. Whenever you change the parental scale, the child develops or shrinks excessively.

This development actually produces results whether the child is covered with the parents or is a good way.

It is important to note that the parenting relationship is one-sided. Moving, twisting or scaling the child will not affect the parents.

Applying a layer to a timetable affects parental relations.
