Duplicate layer, but it’s very complicated to place things exactly where you want them. It’s a method IMHO that can be used when duplicating many times.
I was wondering if it would be possible to clone a layer or a group and place it anywhere on canvas, like a shadow clone, that can be moved anywhere simply by dragging its green position handle.
My idea is to have an option like
that keeps also animation in sync.
For example, there could be an option under
Duplicate Layer called
Clone Layer that allows the user to change arbitrarily position or time offset.
I know this stuff gets tricky because almost any parameter can be animated, but sometimes a simpler approach is needed for quick animations or motion graphics.
Let me know what you think about it or if something similar already exists!
