Onion Skin

The traditional way of planning images for each keyframe is to use the previous (or next) key image to guide the drawing of the current key image (essentially flipping through images when done by the paper method) by displaying the previous (or next) key images in a semi-transparent state. This is called Onion skinning. You can use the Onion skin buttons to activate or deactivate the previous and next onion skins.

The keyboard shortcut for this is: O for a preview of the previous frame, and Option O (or Alt O) for a preview of following frame.
