Hi, I'm hoping someone here can help me with a problem I'm having.  For some reason, out of nowhere, my brush strokes and shapes are all muted and sort of transparent.  The alpha is set to 100%.  I just started last night, on an animation I've been working on for weeks.  If I create a new document, the colors are fine.  It's just in this one document.  Unfortunately, I can't scrap it and start over, I'm in a time crunch.  Any ideas? I'm kind of freaking out, lol.

Hi mate,

 

You must have done something without noticing, but it is difficult to tell what.

First of all check your layer properties to make sure you don't have transparency activated.

If not, post a few images demonstrating the issue, or even better - a small section of the file with 2-3 frames where people can inspect it and look for the cause of this behaviour.

Whenever I've had transparency issues in the past, it's often because I have unintentionally changed the alpha in the frame as opposed to the stroke colour. Try clicking on one of the problem frames and look at the properties to check you haven't accidentally turned the colour effects on and the alpha is down.
