Interface

 

When you create or open a shot you access the main interface, where you can draw and animate.

The features are mainly icons and placed in a manner that their use is as intuitive as possible and complying with the iPad ergonomics and design.

The interface is made up of 4 parts: the top bar, the canvas, the side bar and the timeline.

Tap on the icon on the top left of the interface to go back to the Studio.

! When you go back to the Studio the Undo and Redo history is cleaned !

Callipeg is meant to be used with the Apple Pencil, therefore all the tools on the right side of the screen are to be controlled by the pencil and all the tools on the left side are to be controlled by the finger(s). This is the case for the right-handed animators, but you can switch the interface completely for left-handed animators and in that case all the tools on the left side of the screen are to be controlled by the pencil and all those on the right side of the screen by the finger(s).

The pencil can control most of the tools of the interface if you do not wish to use your fingers.

The Settings icon is the second icon at the top left of the interface. Tap on it to open the Settings panel.

To switch the interface to the left-handed mode, go to the Settings, in General, switch the first button at the top to Left Handed Interface.
