Confirming the type of material

Downloaded materials are stored within the [Manage Materials] screen of Clip Studio or in the “Download” folder of Clip Studio Paint’s [Materials] palette.

Once the download of the material is complete, you may click on it in the “Download” folder of Clip Studio Paint to display detailed information about it on the bottom part of the [Materials] palette.

Among that information, you can find its [Type].

As the importation method varies depending on its type, we will explain the different procedures for each type.

■ Note: The drop location of a [Image Material] and a [Balloon]

When a material is dragged between two layers, a red line appears between them.

If you drop it there, it will be considered as a “newly pasted material,” and a new layer will be created.

If you drag an [Image Material] or a [Balloon] above a layer, a red square will be displayed.

If you drop it there, it will be considered as a “material replacement;” a new layer will be created to replace the one marked in red.

■ Note: The drop location of a [Pose]

If there is no 3D character or 3D drawing figure at the drop location for the pose material, it can be set to a 3D drawing figure by selecting [File] menu > [Preferences] > [3D] > [Model Settings].

If there is a 3D character or 3D drawing figure at the drop location for the pose material, it will be attributed to it.
