This is probably the most SIMPLE, stupid quesiton, but I can’t figure it out, so I’m yealding to the experts.
I"m working on the Pool of Squares tutorial
Well, I got down to # 13 then I got REALLY stuck. HEre were the instructions
**Select the box, then open up the Effects Panel (Window > Panels > Effects).
In the drop-down box, select Alpha, then change 100% to 0%. Skip ahead to 15.
Next, right-click the symbol, and choose properties. Choose the Color Effects tab, choose Alpha from drop-down box, then move the slider all the way to the left (0). Click OK. Skip to 16a.
Next, select this frame (the one with a box in it ).**
Well, the problem is I’m selecting the box by double clicking on it, then I got to Windows>Panels>Effects…but I can’t choose the drop down menu to select ALPHA. Its al greyed out
I’ve tried and tried to fix it, but nothing works. I’m doing something wrong but I don’t know what.
