"Onion skin" for easy animation

It has been very interesting to read how to make a good import of SVG to be able to work with them more easily in this article: Character animation (Flash vs. Hype)

  1. What do you want to see in Hype?
    Would it be possible to implement an "onion skin" button to facilitate character animation?
    This is just a suggestion. I don't know the technical difficulty to make it possible.

  2. Have you found a workaround for this problem?
    So far I solve it by playing with the transparency of the layers, but it would be interesting to have a "switch" that allows to do it together with the number of key frames involved.

  3. Are there examples of other apps with this feature? Or, have you seen examples of this elsewhere on the web? (Please include a URL)
    In HTML5, not to my knowledge.

  1. How high of a priority is this for you?
    [X] Nice to Have
    [ ] Important
    [ ] Can't use Hype without it

Maybe I'm too traditional, old school :sweat_smile:

Thanks for the request! This is a feature I'd been curious to add in the pre-vector shape era of Hype, but with Vector Shapes I definitely agree it would improve character animations. I've added this to the item on our tracker.
