Hello! I'm trying to shade an animation using clipping layers, but the concept of mask/clipping on adobe animate is completely different from what I'm used to, and makes the initial subject dissappear.

 

(Video explaining my problem since I can't upload them directly to this forum)

Indeed shading in Animate is completely different. There are 2 main techniques to shade practically in Adobe Animate:

1) Using Brush Modes: https://youtu.be/iY78Fl633Zo

2) Using the Pencil Tool:https://youtu.be/mb_POcJZ30A

mask is not the same as clipping.  animate has no clipping functionality.

 

however, you can duplicate the effect with several steps.

 

1. add your object (eg, dog) to two adjacent layers, same frame # and same properties (eg, position).  lock that bottom layer.   you should only see the dog in the top layer.

 

2. colorize the dog in the top layer to your clip color

 

3. create another layer just above the colorized dog layer

 

4. draw your clipping shape (color is irrelevant to end-result) in the layer above the colorized dog

 

5. mask the colorized dog layer with the drawing made in #3
