Batch Edit of Multiple Passes


When a pass is set along the image outline, another pass is set in the relative position on the other image and therefore it is necessary to separately adjust the position.

On the following images, the pass is set along the lion face and therefore the pass on the cat on the right side is not put along the face.

This section describes how to adjust the pass positions in batch in such a case.


Selecting multiple passes

To select multiple passes at once, you can use freehand selection and group selection.
To add selected passes by repeating the above operations, check Adding in the option bar.
As the Reverse button reverses the selection conditions, pressing the Reverse button when no pass is selected causes all the passes to be selected.

Freehand selection

Press the Freehand button in the toolbar to select the free selection mode.

As shown in the left figure below, drag the mouse cursor and enclose the target pass.
When the mouse button is released, as shown in the right figure below, the pass section enclosed by the dot line is selected, turning to red.
When the pass is enclosed, the start point and the end point are automatically linked by a straight line. Thus, it is not necessary to make the start point and the end point come into contact.




Group selection

Press the Group button in the toolbar to select the group selection mode.

Left-click any of the passes of the pass shape (passes linked by lines) you desire to select.
As shown in the figure below, all the passes linking to the clicked pass are selected, turning to red.




Moving and deforming pass shape

To move multiple selected passes at once or turn the relative position, press the Deformation button in the option bar. The operation guide as shown below appears.

The operation guide consists of a bounding rectangle that covers all the selected passes and cross lines that cross in the center of the rectangle.
Putting the mouse cursor at different positions on the operation guide causes the mouse cursor shape to change, enabling you to move and rotate the pass shape.



Mouse cursor shapes corresponding to positions on the operation guide


Width adjustment

Adjusts the positioning between passes in the horizontal direction.


Height adjustment

Adjusts the positioning between passes in the vertical direction.


Height and width adjustment

Adjusts the positioning between passes in the vertical and horizontal directions.


Move

Moves the pass.


Rotate

Rotates the pass using the cross point of the guide cross lines as the axis.
As the cross lines slant, the mouse cursor rotates.


Rotation axis adjustment

Adjusts the axis of pass rotation.



The figure below shows rotating operation.



Only to move a pass as shown in the figures below, drag any pass that is selected without displaying the operation guide.
