Tutorial Krita – How to copy/duplicate a frame and move it in Krita

Hello everyone and welcome back to my channel. In this video. I’m going to show you how to duplicate a frame In Krita for animation. So What you do is find a frame that you want to duplicate or copy In this case I want to copy the very first frame I made. because all the other ones are slightly different. And I want the first frame and the last frame to be exactly the same. So what I would do is click over to one of these free spaces And right click on it. And click on “copy frame” And this will copy the frame that comes before it. Then after that all I need to do is move it over to where I want it to be that Which is frame 30. And there you go. I copied the first frame to become the last frame as well. So if you look here. you will see that this is the first frame. This is the last frame. These are the frames in between. So all you have to do is click on an empty frame area. Right click. “Copy frame”. and then move that to where you want it to be at. So lets say I move it over to this one. It will take the place of whatever was there before and so You will notice that it looks just like the other ones. It looks just like the first one and it also looks like the last one. So that’s how you would copy a frame. In Krita, and move it to a different spot. I hope this video was helpful, and thank you for watching. I’ll see you guys next time. Bye.

    Hey, today I just downloaded the newest version of Krita and when I right-click it appears a bunch of new options that don't include "copy frame" or "new frame", am I doing something wrong? It would be a lot of help to know!
