Yes, blend with this color: change to white #FFFFFF
Click OK. Click Next, next, next, next.
Play your animation.
At times your animation may or will come out terrible. Optimization in Animation Shop
is not the greatest.
You can play around will your settings, especially under the Tab: Optimization.
I change this setting at times from anywhere between 70 and 100.
Some people add a white background. To add background, go to Animation:
Animation Properties, select Opaque and change color to white.
