If you looking to save time when making traced images in VinylCut 5 then the Color Layers Mode will be of great help.
Being able to quickly choose how many colors to trace and also have the program add them all to individual layers for you, is such a great way to speed up time when you are tracing images.
This video is part of the Trace Image series, so make sure to check out the previous video for a look at tracing an image in Monochrome Mode.
Next up we’ll be having a look at how to trace an image in Single Color Mode.

How are you guys in today's video? With final Cut, we'll be looking at the colour layers mode in a trace image option or two. Let's have a quick intro here. Yeah. Mm. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za hat seals at A. We have a variety of different Softwares. We do cover and we upload videos daily, so keep an eye there for any new content. Otherwise, we're back in the programme here. Just a reminder. This is a miniseries on trace image feature. So we won't be covering everything in this video. We've covered quite a bit already, so I'll leave in the description some links to some previous videos. Otherwise, yeah, if you, uh, to locate the trace image tools obviously on top two bars, that little landscape, one with a, um point vector point shape on it after you've selected it. And it'll pop up this, uh, image trace or tracing image properties. Then we'll choose the image. My case. I'll use the monkey again. Now from the mod of a year, we'll be selecting colour layers. Yeah, and then we'll be looking at this Max colours and a law colour palette to so I won't really be looking at the high pass philtre. Other is sampling and it's not necessary. So now the Max colours This will basically, um, represent the amount of colours in this shape. So if we had a basic count are white, it doesn't render a trend. Is it as transparent as a background? So if we leave that out, then let's say let's count, because it does add it. But it doesn't render it with 12345 um, six. And I would say, uh maybe another variation here, So I say seven just to be safe. So let's, uh, increase the max colours here. 27. Now, on our palette, we can see here we've got the seven, and it will only render six. Even though we've got seven years cause like a set of white or the background, it does not render. So then, um, and a note, if you want to isolate any layers, So let's say you don't want to render the black, uh, outlines. You can always just click on this layer. Then I'll bring a little line through it, and it will excluded from the reindeer. We will not be doing that. So if we go update preview now, you can always adjust the show saw source image and this will isolate kind of what? Which shapes will be rendered. So we are tricky to understand, But if you look nicely, you'll see Okay, these shapes are highlighted in certain colour outline and so forth. Otherwise we click. OK? Yeah. And just have a look at it. It will happen if this thing will render it into layers so we can see here on our right the It has turned it into a group. Just rise this a bit. We open a group in year, we can see we've got our layers. So we've got all the way from one, 26. So like I said, number seven it doesn't render as it is the white As you can see here also, you can see right through the white No. Yeah. You can start isolating layers if you want. So you can see is our black frame. We just moved that to the side. Sorry. Let me unwrap this object and group, you know can actually move in the visual, uh, colour layers around. So if you wanna isolate certain ones, which it's a. It's a handy tool. So if you want to render your graphics and layers and then afterwards stick them over each other to get the final result, then we'll be using the colour layers mode under the trace image options. Otherwise, if we just say to our website, you're quick, Do you guys navigate here to softwaretraining.co.za ? Or you can find this video and more videos like it.
