2D Grease Pencil effects in Blender 3D

Grease Pencil has a lot of amazing great features. The fact that future exporting to .json for 2D sprite videogames support, leaves most of the competition in consideration. Blender 2.8 beta pre-release will be presented in the BlenCon held this month of October in Amsterdam.

Here are some key features we await:

  • Closer rigging system between 3D and 2D
  • Morphing targets
  • Blending modes in the Effects Panel
  • Custom properties driven by Grease Pencil parameters (Think GP GUIs!!)
  • Video Strip Editor (VSE) ability to include Storyboarding and layout animatics with direct
  • GreasePencil object integrations!

More features to confirm about integration to be announced on the BCon this year.
