I've created in photoshop a photo with a gradient layer mask resulting in a picture that starts as 100% transparent, and becomes 100% opaque from left to right.
I import to flash and and animate on top of another picture to create a dissolve effect.
Flash recognizes the transparency, but it does not handle the gradient well, and the dissolve isn't soft and nice as I'd hoped. I've tried importing as psd and as png 24-bit.
Is this a limitation of Flash, not being able to produce soft nice looking bitmap gradients as in photoshop, or is there any method to get better results?
Many thanks in advance, folks.
