When drawing with onion skin activated.

Normally after you paint your drawing it should stay where you put it.

But the problem I'm having is the drawing turned green (which is the onion skin of the previous frame) So I draw a line here And after I release the mouse it turned green It seems it was drawn in the last frame.

And this had bothered me for days.

The frame rates was 25 in defult, had changed it to 24 before I start to do the animations, not sure if thats the problem.

Thanks for the time and the answers. Hope I've written my questions clear, English is hard...

This was tricky to work out but basically it's because you have a frame offset modifier with a Frame offset set to 1. So at any time, the frame you see is actually one frame ahead of the frame you're actually on.
That makes any new drawing go back by one frame as soon as you finish drawing, immediatly turning to the onion-skin greeenish colour.

Your problem will disappear if you either disable the modifier or set its Frame offset to 0.
