Hope someone can help me here.

I have a Comp where i have a compass with needle rotates around. But this is only a background entertainment. I have set the opacity to 35% so it does not take as much attention but i also have to fade the needle. When i use opacity on that you are albe to se true the needle. Thats not my intentione. are there a way to do without making it transparent.

See pic

Best regards Peter

Precomp the compass background and the needle, then change the opacity of the precomp. Like so:
