    How to hide corners on round object

    rico1931 Level 1

      Hello folks,

       

      I have a flash video that has a spinning globe. The problem is that the video is a square with a circle in it. I'm trying to have objects fly around the circle but the corners are hiding the objects so it seems like they disappear before they hit the edge of the circles.

       

      Im guess you would do this the same way you would do a photoshop image of putting a mask over the circle and making everything else transparent to hide the 4 corners but I'm not sure how or if this is the proper way to do it. If someone has any suggestions or a tutorial they could point me to I would greatly appreciate it

       

      Thank you!

          Back in the creation of your Flash animation, you will need to include the Alpha Channel to mask out that background. What program was used to create the Flash animation? That would be where you would Export with Alpha Channel. Exactly how, and even what Alpha Channel is called, will depend on the program used.

           

          Good luck,
