I'm animating a lot of flying pages of text.
My process has been to make a symbol of a page using a PNG about 2200X1700 pixels.
Then I animate the symbol, generally things like zooming from 0 to full screen etc.
At some scales, the symbols go blank - like the computer can't figure out what to do at small scales.
Is this some basic workflow issue I don't know about? Like - should I make my stage bigger? or are my PNGs TOO big kind of thing? Any advice would be appreciated!
It's a known issue, bitmaps disappear when you scale them down too much in relation to the stage, it gets worse the higher the resolution an image is. You can fix this by converting the bitmaps to vector; select the image > right-click > trace bitmap.
Bitmap resolution is too big. Animate can't render it at a certain scale, so it just makes it disapear. It's a power I wish I had when I can't sort something out 🙂
