Rig mode- ALPHA doesn't save?

Post by furrfire » Wed Jul 04, 2018 8:00 am

In rig mode- in the regions window on the right- you can set the scale x scale y, angle, and even ALPHA slider bar.

When I set the alpha to what I want- it doesn't save it. When I go into animate or even bone test mode- the alpha setting is lost, and it reverts back to 100%.
Am I doing something wrong, or is this alpha setting just for seeing more clearly in rig mode?

Hello,

The alpha in rig mode is not actually meant for final display in animate mode, it is just for testing to allow you to fade away regions to help with rigging.

If you want to actually animate opacity/fade out regions in Animate mode, go into animate mode, then switch to the Regions tab. Now select the region you want, a new Opacity timeline will show up in the keyframes/knots view. 0 means completely transparent, 100 means opaque. You can keyframe those values to animate Opacity.

Thanks
