Ive imported a small graphic from illustrator and I want to animate it so that a shape changes its fill color gradually into another.
I tried making the shape a Symbol and then making a key frame and accusing inside the symbol the fill and changing its color then exiting and tweeting.
This does not work. So how do I do this please?
Animating gradients are done using shapes, and shape tweens. So do not make your shape a symbol. Use shape tween to create the effect you are going for if you want to use gradients, to create the effect of transition of colour filling up and into your shape. Of course you can create the shape tween animation inside a symbol also.
