Does anyone know if when you have a free hand neon light, whilst in animating, can you add more points? Like you can do when drawing it, if you click on the line it adds a new point. Can you do that whilst animating?

Nope, you can't add points after you start animating. So if you anticipate possibly needing more points later on, you should add in some extra ones while drawing the shape.

Yes, but I wish you added particles to your list

Quick Tip smile

When i realise i haven't enough points, i slice the layer at that frame and then add a new freehand (neonlight/mask...)on the new layer that has been created.

if that makes sense...
