Convert Vector-layer to Bitmap-layer

Post by halmaki » Tue Sep 15, 2015 10:55 pm

I want convert selected vector-layer(or selected group) to bitmap single layer.
(before bended by bone)

Making it be possible to extract the bit-mapped image that the case was created in the file(PSD or png ) and its wanting it

It hopes for the feature to draft directness in the bitmap layer, too, but it thinks that a substitute for the draft is made in this change feature.

easiest way, IMO, is to make that vector layer the only one visible and render it - If it's not animated - File / Preview then Save As bitmap (or save to clipboard and then in Photoshop File / new from clipboard) or if you need a bitmap sequence, File / Export Animation - then format = image sequence and preset = BMP; then import the file as an image layer (or Script / Image / Import image sequence)
