Fill to line is NOT possible. Think about that... a fill can be a circle or a square.... or any shape in between... how would that convert to a line? Therefore its not possible. 

What you CAN DO is just add a stroke to your fill using the ink bottle tool, then delete the fill.... and you will have an outline of the fill.

 

Happy New Year.

Lines to Fills: Modify, Shape, Convert Lines to Fills.

Fills to Lines:

  • Select fill with Selection Tool
  • Add Stroke with Ink Bootle Tool
  • Select fill with Selection Tool, press delete and your are left with the stroke  (outline of the fill).
  • Select stroke with Subselection Tool. Now you can modify the line/stroke as you wish with a combination of Subselection Tool and the Anchor Tools under the Pen tool.

If it is only a single frame, you can use Illustrator. You copy the Animate stage, and paste it into an Illustrator file, the format it generates is a bitmap. You use the image tracing tool, with the outline presset. And the object that it generates, you copy and paste it in Animate, and Et voilá!
