Fresco Motion - White GIFs

End goal: Export a GIF with transparent background and animated white doodle.

When I initially went to export the animation from Fresco I realized the options were:
- no transparency (basically adds a white background layer to artwork)
- white as transparent (white illustration I drew has now dropped out to nothing)

I tried to work around this by making the illustration in black and then exporting with transparency (planning to bring into PS and apply a color overlay of white to all layers within a group) BUT the GIF exported from Fresco included a halo of jagged white pixels around the illustration.

I was trying to think of a workaround where I could drop the background out in PS quickly (not masking one layer at a time) since using the transparency feature in Fresco's export made the lines quite rough. Not having come up with an automation for that maybe the next best option is the animate in AE and then export from PS as a GIF aka skipping Fresco motion all together?

All suggestions welcome!!

You can do the whole process in PS.

Create your layers then export out as an Animation.

Simplify the process by using one app, since you're using PS anyway, do everything in there. 

Depending on your image and the requirements for tweening of course.

My hope was not to use PS at all since Fresco has "Motion" where animations can be preformed there. Like you said though a work around would be to bring the layered file into PS and then animate even though some movement is easier to key frame in Fresco. Thanks @Sjaani for at least confirming I wasn't missing something in Fresco's export options-

If this is something you hope to do a lot of I'd be heading to the Suggest a Feature threads (App Settings > Help > Suggest a Feature)  and asking that transparency be added to exported animated gifs.
