  • Access Color preferences to customize the shades of Ghosts
  • Other useful options are found in Stacker preferences (click cogwheel on dialog box for quick access)
  • There you can turn Ghost on Playing ON & OFF during playblast
  • You can adjust number of Ghosts displayed before and after selected key
  • You can also switch to Ghost on frames display for precision work
