How to backup my animation work?

Callipeg saves automatically your shot every 30 seconds and each time you go back to the Studio. Also, by default, the backup is set to save on .peg file every 30 minutes, up to 5 files saved. You can find these backup files in your Files app > On my iPad > Callipeg > Backups. You can set your Backup preferences in the Settings panel > General tab. If you want to secure your files even more, you can export your .peg files to another folder (within your iPad or through a Cloud service).

How many layers and sheets can I have in my shot?

Only the number of sheets matters. You can have as many layers as you want, until you reach the sheets limit. This limit depends on the storage of your device. The size of one sheet equals the length of the shot in pixels multiplied by the height of the shot in pixels multiplied by 4 bytes. Here is how to estimate your possible number of sheets depending on your remaining available storage : (remaining available storage in bytes / (height of your shot in pixels x length of your shot in pixels x 4)) / 3 = number of sheets you can add in Callipeg This calculation includes a rough estimation of the size of undos and backups, but this will depend on how many actions you do, the backup number you have set and other conditions. So consider this as a very rough estimation to have an idea of how many sheets you can add. So for example if you have 50Gb left on your iPad storage and a 1920×1080 pixels shot, you can add (50 000 000 000 / (1920x1080x4))/3= 2009 more sheets in the app. The performance of navigation and fluidity of drawing will also depend on your iPad processor.
