[Pro] Fade Action

Hi,

At p398, printed ‘using freeway 5 reference’, it says “As the opacity of the graphic decreases, anything underneath (behind) the graphic shows through.”
I have tried this with both 4.4.3 and 5.5.7, with internally generated graphics and externally imported graphics, and although the ‘see-through’ effect works with foreground (actioned) and background items in the edit mode, the ‘faded/transparent’ foreground graphic appears in the Preview mode and in the generated web page as a solid uni-color. Any ideas please.

Does no one know the answer, why the ‘show through’ effect mentioned in the reference manual for the Fade action, does not work for me?

try re-applying the image in a CSS layer on the top.

I am not pro and someone much smarter than me has to know a better answer, but I am making enough screw ups to learn how to fix things.

It sounds like you have the graphic file format output set to jpeg. Select your graphic then In the inspector pallet change the graphic format to PNG. That should take care of it.

With the graphic item, with the Fade applied to it, selected look in the Inspector.

Make sure you have Type selected as a png with Colors: Millions

Thank you all, but espesh chucka and David, geniuses, both of you. It works!! I had the top, faded layer set to gif, as I had read somewhere that jpeg didn’t allow transparency… Now I know, and may I suggest that the passage in the ‘manual’ adds the fact that the ‘show through’ only works as David says.

Thanks again. You are all brilliant.

You are all brilliant.

A good coat of carnauba, and a brisk buffing helps.
