Hi I am a complete noob to animate. I'm sure this is very basic but any help would be appreciated

I am trying to create google display ads(usually use GWD but would like to move to Animate).

 

I have all my artwork setup and ready to animate. 

 

For example, I have my headline text at frame 0 and keyframe at frame 15 to nudge up 20 pixels. That part is fine but when I keyframe that layer the rest of the layers disapper.

 

Layers like the background layer and logo should be visibile throughout the animation.

What am i doing wrong?

 

Thanks

You can checkou...

You can checkout the videos being posted in Adobe Animate YouTube channel to get some idea. Following is the URL of one such video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CAvceQL9CQ&list=PLYeXZOOCIwCvX_8um3abica_XzQejQNd3

I also suggest you to try out some of the tutorials available in Animate to get hands-on experience. The tutorials are available under Help menu of Animate (Help -> Hands-On tutorial).

 

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any further queries. Thanks!

This video is part of the Learn Along series. It will be useful for beginners interested in learning the basics of Adobe Animate.
