Layer Types

OCA is able to store different types of layers. For now, three types are supported : paintlayer, grouplayer, and vectorlayer. We hope to be able to support other types in the future like adjustment layers (at least with the most common effects) or masks.

OCA Identifier Description
paintlayer A bitmap containing an image
vectorlayer Vectors forming an image, like an SVG file
grouplayer A layer without frames/images but continaing other layers


We’re planning to add a new ocalayer layer type to allow for nested OCA documents.
