Can you share an example FLA? (You can use Dropbox, Box, or Google Drive to share it).
Hi just.emma yes sure, here it is https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_axM2-ZAZMuTDBFVWowSGZMSnM&usp=sharing
you can mask and unmask to see animation inside movieclip
using Animate CC 2015.2
I just tested it out and saw this error in the output panel:
Feature not supported: Multiframe symbols in masks.
It looks like in Canvas, you can only animate your mask on the main timeline, but not inside the mask symbol.
Yes, this is the case. If you extract the animation inside the symbol, and put it directly into the same level as the thing being masked, the mask should work. If the symbol was a loop, just paste as many repeats of the mask animation as you need.
@Colin Holgate I didn't understand what are you suggested can you show me some example?

In your FLA you have a mask layer that is a movieclip, which isn't allowed in HTML5 Canvas. You would normally fix that by taking the shape animation from inside the movieclip, and putting it one level up, as a mask on top of the picture.
But, you have a two animating shapes in the movieclip, so I think you will need two layers with the picture in it, one of which is masked by the square animation layer, and the other masked by the circle animation.
By the time you're done, your example won't have any movieclips at all.
thanks, now I understood
