Disappearing Items

on 5/26/2012, 9:27 am
Ok, I have no clue what the fuck is going on here.

So pretty much I've made this animation of Sonic powering up. I've got my V-cam set so that it will go all white, indicating a power surge or what have you. But the instance that the V-cam even has 1% more of brightness or anything in a tween or a new keyframe, my aura effects disappears in the SWF instantly. I have no idea what the fuck is going on. The effect only disappears when there is a colour change in the V-Cam. I can still motion tween it to move around and the effect is fine. But if I add a colour, filter, blend or anything to the V-Cam, it's gone. Any ideas?

I've tried both. I've tried the effects with blend, without blend, with colours, without colours it still disappears when the V-Cam changes.

perhaps you acidently put the effect on the same layer as the cam.

that or the effect only has one frame, look into you movie clip and see.





My upcoming projects

Captain Falcon vs Bang Shishigami: 4%      Vergil vs Sephiroth: 60%      

Killer Instinct Origins: TJ Combo:10%        Dragonclaw vs Evil Ryu Remake: 10%

Lloyd vs Kratos:13%                Kratos vs Cloud:10%        Ryu Hyabusa custom sprites:1%

No, the effect is on a different layer, I've even tried putting it on multiple layers at the same time and different times. And the effect has 4 frames, and i've tried it as both a graphic and a movie clip.

When the screen starts going white, that yellow aura disappears immediately. It's not supposed to.

Instead of changing the color of the V-Cam itself, perhaps make a white box in a separate layer behind the V-Cam that turns from alpha "0" to alpha "100", giving the illusion of a white fade-out.

This.

It's what I do. I used to mess with the Vcam alot, but it gave me too many complications, and I ended up mindfucking myself. It's best if you do what Moke's saying.

It's not really working around. You're basically making the same effect, but this time, it's effective and easier. :3

Yeah I did that all the time. I feel that it's more organized and you can control the effect better as it's not over everything.
Like for making only the background darker or brighter and leaving the characters intact.

Is it a problem with the V-cam or just this one animation?
