More Harmony Tutorials

I've been trying to churn out some more tutorials for Toonboom Harmony, and I'll be posting them as I go. Here is the first one -- a simple one, about masking pupils to eyes.

Deleting pegs in Harmony

This is just a little heads up, for anyone interested. In Harmony/Animate etc etc you can hit a little round button to make a peg and associate your current drawing layer with it. Nice. if you disassociate your drawing layer from the peg, the peg disappears from the timeline. BUT…

Initial Impressions
