Editing an Animate CC animation in after effects

Hello, 

 

I am new to after effects and I learned that you can move the background to create the illusion of different camera angles for an animation. I intend to zoom in the background at a different frame point of the animation. 

The background has been made in adobe animate so it is a normal fla file. The animation has also been made in adobe animate but is a swf file. On youtube videos that I have seen, the background file is a PNG file and the animation is a PNG sequence. I wanted to ask does the background have to be a PNG file or can it be a normal fla file that I can add behind the animation. Also, does the animation itself also have to be exported as a PNG sequence to work in after effects or can it just be a swf file.

If the background must be a PNG file, how do I make it a PNG file? Everytime that I have tried to export the fla file to a PNG, the final result is not the same image as the background that I made in adobe animate are missing. I do not know the correct setting to ensure the image stays the same. 

 

I hope this makes sense. Your help would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Bili

Actually, you can open an FLA file in After Effects, it generates the layers you have created together in a composition. And then you can get the work done.

I designed a background in adobe animate and I'd like to be able to edit this background in after effects so my question is how to convert the background file into a png?
With an animation I made in animate, I wanted to edit it in after effects and my question is does this animation have to also be in a png sequence? 

My aim: I wanted to edit the animation in after effects with a background. I wanted to have different camera angles of the background by zooming into the background or turning it to a different position. As the background changes to a different angle, the animation will be at a different scene. That's why I was asking if the animation needs to be a png sequence. Let's say, in one scene the character of the animation jumps but when camera angle changes and the background is zoomed in, the character hides under the table. So for these different scenes, would the animation need to be separate png sequence files. So one sequence of the character jumping and another of the character under a table. Or one continuous swf file that includes both movements of the character jumping and hiding.

I hope this is clearer 🙂

Thank you,

Bili

to export a png, click file > export image and select png.

 

if you want to create an animated png, click file > export movie and select animated png.

 

for after effects questions, you should ask in the after effects forum.

When selecting png there are many setting options and I'm not sure what will keep the file the same. When I just keep the settings as is, the image changes and not all the details appear. 

thanks,
