Chapter 9. Animating with Shape Tweening > Changing Shape Tweening Color and Al...

Changing Shape Tweening Color and Alpha Options

Because shape tweening can only be applied to editable shapes, you can’t use the same color style effects that are available to instances. Instead, you must make these changes directly to the shape using the color palettes, the Color Mixer, or the Swatches Panel. When shape tweening is applied, differences in color and alpha are tweened along with any shape changes. This applies to strokes as well as fills.

Change Shape Tween Color

1.
Select the beginning or ending keyframe in a shape tween or select the shape on the Stage.

2.
Click the Window menu, and then click Color Mixer.

TIMESAVER Press Shift+F9 to open the Color Mixer.

3.
Make changes to the shape’s stroke and fill colors by entering values in the RGB and Alpha fields, or by using the list arrows to the right of these fields.

4.
Click the Control menu, and then click Test Movie to test color tween.
