Blue Pencil 1.5 - Layer Manager Preview

This preview demonstrates a new layering system that allows users to create multiple layers and assign them to different cameras. The drawings/keyframes are unique to each layer allowing for separate animation of characters, props, notes and more. Create and delete layers as needed. Additionally, the Layer Manager allows for layer reordering, camera switching and toggling layer visibility.
