Hi, i want to animate the color of a movieclip. I create 2 keyframes. If I change the color of the movieclip on stage in the 2nd keyframe, the color will change in the other key frame as well. How can I avoid this?

Hi. That's how symbols work. If you change a symbol internally, all instances that inherit from it will change as well. If you want to change just one instance of a symbol, you have basically four options: - Apply color effects (not recommended for HTML5 documents); - Apply filters (not recommended for HTML5 documents); - Duplicate the symbol (right-click > Duplicate Symbol...); - Use code to affect only the instances you wish.

If you want to change just one instance of a symbol, you have basically four options:


- Apply color effects (not recommended for HTML5 documents);
- Apply filters (not recommended for HTML5 documents);
- Duplicate the symbol (right-click > Duplicate Symbol...);

- Use code to affect only the instances you wish.
