Clip Studio Short Animation Making Course

Hey there!
Welcome to the first post of the translation project I’m working on that uses this book:

I wanted to translate this book for not only my benefit of using Clip Studio but for everyone else who wants to use as their animation program.

I want to run a free course on this by providing weekly video content of each lesson and assigning “homework”. Hopefully towards the end beginners will feel more confident in using Clip!


There there are 4 chapters and a bonus chapter that has a breakdown on the opening of Jojo. Each chapter has lessons, sections of the lessons, and extra info in a section known as columns. Here is the translation of the content of the first chapter:
Chapter 1: Clip Studio Paint Animation Function

Section 3: Cell Specification
Column: “Advance Settings” in the “specify all cells” dialog
Column: Select Cells on the Timeline

Section 4: Making a Layer Folder in an animation cell

Lesson 3: Creating an animation canvas
Section 1: New dialog overview
Column: Moving Illustrations
Column: Making it a canvas for later
Section 2: Creating a canvas
Column: General Screen Size

Lesson 4: Auxiliary Functions Essential for Animation Production

Column: Difference between Cells specific light table and “can” light table
Column: Light table Tools

Part 2 of Chapter 1 will be all about the light table tool in Clip since this book goes in detail of the use of it. It’s very interesting! I want to practice it a bit more before I make the video so that I’ll know what i’m talking about (with the book’s knowledge) and that I can answer questions about it.

Also I can make a written doc of these lessons if you guys want.


Hey guys
I will be uploading a new video tomorrow. Things has been crazy lately thanks to the corona virus and let’s just say i have a BUNCH of more time to make these videos and tuts. I will release videos every other day to get through this book and I will do the After Effect book alongside.
I hope you guys are well and I hope your state/country will take care of yall ;3
