I'm looking for a way to display a semi-transparent animated symbol (picture1) without seeing the different overlapped layers contained in this animated symbol (picture 2). Kind of "ghost effect" on the whole symbol.
Properties of the occurence of the symbol are "Alpha 50%", and its layer is on Multiply.
In previous versions you could choose different blending modes for Movie Clips and change the alpha. It would render the picture without revealing the internals. The last version that behaves as it is should is An CC 2018.
In 2019 with the introduction of the so called Advanced Layers they changed the behaviour which I believe to be a bug. It may be fixed at some point.
Until then your only options are:
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your fast reply
Yes, I work on Animate CC 2019... (and my symbol is not a MovieClip, but an animated graphic symbol.)
When you have your animation complete, duplicate to keep the tweens and guide the original layers.
Then convert to frame by frame, merge and convert to bitmaps. It will work.
Or, as I said earlier, install 2018 alongside your 2019 and use Frames To Movieclips and Effects Tween.
Both variants will produce the desired result.
Thanks for your reply
Unfortunately I can't install Animate CC 2018 (I'm a new user of CC)
And I'd like to keep the vector aspect of my animations to import them in After Effects and zoom in without pixels. My animation in Animate is only an animatic rough, a try : I create my animated symbols in Animate, but the final footage is made in AE
So, in Animate, I avoid the alpha and decide to export each Movieclip of my librairy as a swf file to import them in AE.
But in AE, big bug. Only some pieces of the first frame of my swfs are visible and stay static.
Never had this problem with CS6. What's happen?
Here's where you can get 2018 from:
As for the rest, someone else might hopefully come in and help.
OK. I guess the animate/AE problem desserves a new topic...
