I am working on a Imac using Flash CS5. I can create a Flash animation with a transparent background
but there is a slight white halo around the images. How do I export a Flash animation as a gif with
absolutely no white halo at all. Is this possible? or wheneve you turn a vector to a gif there will
always be a slight white halo. I have brought the image into Photoshop and could painstakingly
use the eraser tool but there must be a way to mass assembly the process. I have tried Fireworks CS5
and Photoshop, whenever I open the Flash gif animation there is a slight white halo.
Look forward to the techy with the answer
You should include a screenshot that helps explain the issue. The only halo effect I know of would involve a filter (in light color) being added.
If your document stage is white and you are not viewing the GIF on a white or light background then the halo is probably due to the antialiasing of the pixels at the edges of your graphics. The GIF format does not support alpha transparency, so you end up seeing the smoothed edges as fully opaque pixels. There are several ways to address this:
