animating alpha channels

Discussion created by Guest on Nov 16, 2005
I am trying to animate the alpha channel on an image. I did successfully do it but now Solidworks is not allowing me to do it. These are the steps which I took in Animator:
Selected the keyframe
then selected the apperance
right click Appearance colour on the image in the animator menu
changed transparency to 1 on colour and optics box
ticked the top of the colour box
then repeated the same steps for the next keframe but changed the transparency to 0.

Are therse the correct procedures, what am I doing wrong?
