GM:S 1.4 [SOLVED] Sprites: Onion Skin

    Recently picked up the Humble Bundle GM Studio, really excited to make some games, though I've hit a roadblock, I'm not the best at this, and in particular I'm having a lot of trouble because there's no onion skin.

    Is Onion Skin a feature? if so how do I enable it? if not tips on how to keep consistency between frames?

    Thanks in advance.

    Now I feel silly; I've been using GM since GM7 and Studio since its launch and I didn't know about onion skinning in the editor; but then again I make my sprites in flash or photoshop

    Yeah, I can see the appeal of doing your sprites in an outside editor. I'm not much of a graphic designer, so I just use what I've got.

    I have made some really nice graphics and sprites with the built in editor. Many times my entire game graphics are created and edited that way. ;)

    I'm doing the same.

    At first I was reluctant to use the inbuilt tool because it didn't look like it was very powerful. However I was very wrong about that and it is really good for doing pixel art. The only real issue I have is that the colour picker is still a little lackluster. It would be nice to get it to accept external pallets.
