Apologies if some of what I’m asking here should be obvious – this is my first week of working with Silhouette, and I’m attempting to use it for the project of the moment largely in an attempt to learn the ropes.
I have several still images with the same object in them, in which I’m going to want to be able to apply the same paint operations (after figuring out where the object is located in a given still) in every instance.
While Silhouette is primary built as a video-centric tool, it seems like a good fit for this task – if I can get a reasonably streamlined workflow together for getting the layer with the paint operations aligned with each instance of the object (which requires at least translation and rotation).
Any hints on where to start? If all I had to do was create three tracking points and manually align them to the same points on each image, I’d be thrilled. (If there were automating tooling to take advantage of the object’s very-well-defined edges, that would be even better – magnetic freehand does a beautiful job of finding its outline; where I’m getting a big stuck is getting a preexisting layer with paint on it aligned after a new input is connected).
