Help! I have this problem in Breaking apart a shape object imported from Photoshop.

I made a 2D cartoon in Photoshop and I used shape tool for it. I imported it to Animate CC to make a simple animation. But I can't apply a warp to the layer so I need to use break apart. When I press CTRL+B to break apart, the layer suddenly changed color. I don't know what to do/...Help me T.T

Hi mate,

It seems that there is some masking and what not in that file.

When you break it apart the file structure is destroyed. What you see is probably the mask in red, the colour of the shark is this blue colour card and so on.

Break apart is working just fine. It's your file from Photoshop that is not suitable for what you want to do with it.

What should you do?
