If I make it a graphic clip, the nested animation plays on the stage in Animate but not when I publish it.

Is it that nested animations are not a thing in html 5 or maybe I'm missing a setting somewhere?

Fixed. I had a tint on my MovieClips preventing the animation from updating.

you're missing something.

 

are you testing from animate, or are you clicking the published html, or are you uploading to a server and testing from the server, or something else?

Thanks. I published to html and it has the same behavior once unploaded to a server. I would expect the 4 cirlcles to play, I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Here is a ling to the fla:  https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ytdXRZ72vLS6WzxUwRhP-U7W0Yn098kH?usp=sharing

i don't download and fix files unless i'm hired.  and this is a problem you can probably fix yourself.

 

open your browser's developer console when testing and check for errors.

It seems that if you add Tint, Brightness or Advanced Color Effects to a MovieClip containing an animation, it will just display the first frame as a bitmap when published in html 5. There aren't any  error on a browser's developer console, but the Animate Output says "Color effects are published as a filter and subject to the same limitations."

Thanks for helping!

i see some inconsistent and unexpected behavior but in none of my tests did the movieclip (motion tween) animation fail.  most often the color effect failed when added after the tween was created.

 

but sometimes the color effect (if added in frame 1) was successfully added and the animation played as expected.

 

i never successfully added a color effect after frame 1 of the motion tween.

Adding a tint on a MovieClip containing a tween won't work. This was the problem. However, you are right: adding a tint on the tween inside the MovieClip works as long as it's on the first frame.

oh, i would be surprised if adding an effect to a movieclip that contains a movieclip would work no matter what type of animate project (though i don't think that would break the animation).
