ok so I'm a bit new to Adobe I used this app for about 6 months but I have a problem, 

 

The animation I import to the stage or time line the first frame is fine but then when it gets to the second and third and continuing the lines get thinner as if something is spreading 

Note: I use fire alpaca to animate

Idk what the problem could be the file type or the app?? 

 

The first pic is the start of the animation  but the second one is like the first pic left marks behind

I noticed you are using a Canvas type document - is your final output for HTML5? This may be the issue. I never use Canvas type and just created a new document and imported an image sequence but it didn't populate the timeline. ActionScript type documents will however place each image in a sequence in it's own keyframe. I suspect it's either a bug or at least an inconsistency with document types in Animate.

After googling "fire alpaca" it would seem you are importing whatever you create in that application as bitmaps to Animate correct? 
So frame 1 is fine but then this issue starts in frame 2, 3, etc... correct?
Have you inserted frames to extend the duration on this layer?
Or have you inserted keyframes in each frame on this layer?
Or have you created additional layers and drawen anything on top of the original layer?
Can we get a screenshot of your timeline?

Whenever an image sequence is imported into Animate, it gets imported with each image in its own keyframe on a single layer. 

If you are then drawing over these images, it's really a very good idea to create a new layer (above) the image sequence layer to then draw inside. You never really want to draw over bitmaps all on the same layer - for editing purposes and general file mangement purposes.

I can do a video but this is very basic.
You said you animate in a different program and then import into Animate. Then you said you draw over what you imported and all on a single layer.

 

What you should do is:

Import to Animate your animation.

Create a NEW layer.

Draw on new layer.
