Cut, Copy and Paste

The Blue Pencil 2 toolset provides the ability to cut and copy existing frames to a custom clipboard. The frames can then be pasted back into the current layer or a different layer.

Cut, copy and paste operations act on the frame(s) at the current time or in a selected timeline range.

These operations can be performed through the Frames submenu (BP2->Frames) or the Toolbox:

Cut the frames in the selected range and copy it to the clipboard.
Copy the frames in the selected range to the clipboard.
Paste the contents of the clipboard at the current time.


  • - Maya's native cut/copy/paste operations will not work with Blue Pencil 2 frames.
  • - The BP2 clipboard is independent of Maya's native clipboard and copying to one will not override the contents of the other.
