After loading the new animate CC 2019, I can no longer find Filters - to do things like blur an object. Any guidance on finding Filters is appreciated.

That symbol is a Graphic. You've never been able to apply filters to Graphic symbols, ever. Make it a Movie Clip.

They're right where they've always been, at the bottom of the the Properties pane for symbols.

If that's not the case for your install, post a screenshot.

That is where I expected to find them, but I'm not seeing them. See capture attached.Screen Shot 2018-12-18 at 9.14.49 AM.png

Hi mate,

It may be that your file originates in an older version of Flash / Animate (or is not AS3)

If you want to use filters on layers or keys, you need to switch Advanced Layers on (An CC 2019+).

To do this open the Modify menu, choose Document... and in the dialog check Use Advanced Layers.

Then more options will be available in Properties when you select keys or even whole layers.

Hope this helps!

I spoke too soon. I'm trying to create a shadow for my walk cycle using the instructional video provided here. However, when I go to the Frame properties, I only see options for Label and Sound. When I turn on Advanced Layers per your instructions above, I'm taken to the Object properties where I can add a Drop Shadow filter, but there is no way to check "Hide object". Here are the screenshots for the Frame properties as well as the Object properties. Would appreciate any thoughts you have.
