Hello.

I have attached a screenshot and a Youtube video of an animation which was exported out of Animate CC as an mp4. I have noticed that the bright yellow lacing on the chests and cuffs of the mounted figures have become dominated by black. I have also attached a screenshot of the animation test, in which the yellow color is clear, and not black. I don't understand why, whenm the test shows the yellow color on the chest and cuffs, in the exported mp4 the yellow has turned mainly black. Can anyone offer any advice about this problem? Grateful for any help. the animation was created on an iMac osx 10.15.3 Catalina.

Hi mate,

 

I could see in a previous video of yours on YouTube how it looks when you zoom in:

What you experience is the outlines - i.e. the black pencil lines overwhelming the fill, because they render on top.

To avoid this you can convert those lines to fills.

 

My suggestion is to keep a copy of your drawing with the lines (for potential future editing) on a duplicated and guided layer.

To convert the lines to fills you select the shape and from the Modify menu you choose Shape > Convert Likens to Fills

After that the thin outlines will render better.
