Hey guys, i'm a pretty new animator with only 3 vids so far. Until now Ive used paint tool sai to draw, then import my drawings into animate to use as objects. However, a large chunk of my time spent doing this is seperating all the objects before i import them into animate. I do this because when i import 2 layers from sai that overlap one another, it creates a fuzzyness around the edge of said object. So if i'm drawing 10 different mouth shapes on different layers i have to space them out to where none of them are touching and make sure theres no background behind them. *i upload backgrounds serpately to not have an issue with this.    Can anyoe tell me why this is happening? How can upload from sai without the fuzzy edges?

Ive actually solved this issue, it was simple. While Importing layers into sai one needs to import the image as "bitmap image with editable layer styles" and the issue is solved.

UPDATE: Actually I found that you also have to name your layers you're importing something besides numbers for some reason.......Like it cant be 1,2,3....it has to be frame1,frame2,frame3....Why this makes a difference? I'll never know
