Join Dermot O' Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Animating a cross dissolve, part of Flash Professional: Animation Tips and Tricks.
If you're going to do any kind of short film, or any complex sequence of scenes in Flash,…it's best to do the work in Flash on an individual scene-by-scene basis, and…then bring the scenes into After Effects, or another video editing program, and…render them out as a PNG sequence, or an MOV or an AVI file, or whatever.…But sometimes you might want to have a quick and dirty transition between two…scenes in Flash, and quick cuts of course, are no problem at all.…
You might have some issues, however when you do cross dissolves. And let me…show you the big one, I guess. So in this case we have a background of the…ship floating at sea.…I want it to cross dissolve into the captain's cabin, and he's got his book, and…his lamp, and clock on the table.…So here's what happens normally when you have your scene, and you do the alpha…transparency; the fade in.…Flash shows you these intersections where the different symbols overlap, and…you can see the table through the book, and the clock through the book; it's a real nuisance.…
