the background color of my gif file is lilac
how can i change this to a transparent background color?
You should see a transparency adjustment box on the right hand side ofQuote:> the background color of my gif file is lilac

Do you see that?
Also - there's a helpful tutorial about GIF Animator 5.0 here:
Note: GIF Animator 5 offers new Ulead object creation and management
So it's different from past versions of the program.
The tutorial above explains this in greater detail.
Probably because you have SELECTED all objects.Quote:> _all_ objects now transparent
If you create a new object and then SELECT it, you can control the
transparency for that object ONLY - as long as no other objects are
My sample of this problem are here:
Unlike other Animated GIF packages, you can't simply select a color to
be transparent and save the gif. Instead, you have to work frame by
select a Frame
select the corresponding object
use the magic wand to select the color that you want to be transparent
click the "Selection Options" button at the top-middle
select "Make Selection Area Transparent"
Then repeat for each Frame - what a major hassle !!!
Then, after doing all that - I have an odd "ghosting" problem. The
GIF plays file if I click the "Run" button at the bottom of the Frames
bar - but when I save it, or when I view it in the preview pane - each
image "stays" for the duration until Frame 1 is repeated. The images
stack up and you see this weird trailing effect. Image Ready
(Photoshop companion) does the same thing.
Their help file is miserable - when you search for Transparent there
is one entry with one sentence about it:
"Makes the selected area in the selected object layer transparent"
That's it !!! I emailed them but no response after 2 days.
However, the one free tool, www.gifworks.com works perfectly !! You
simply load the file, click on the color you want to be transparent,
and save the gif. Still this was $44 and I want to get it to work -
any ideas?? Feel free to download the original GIF and see if you
also get that Ghosting effect when you make the outer portions
Transparent - I am so curious to see if you do.
