I’ve tried and failed to export my animation as images, targa, png, so that I can drop it into my scene in After Effects, and I get an error message about not being able to parse the file or something? How do I export stills that can be used by my other programs?
It should work by exporting in Animate to any supported file format in AE (ex PNG, TGA, or PSD). Only thing is that in case there is some transparency issue, you need to select color with transparency to have an alpha channel. Also make sure the AE has no previous blank drawing before in the project that may confuse you as if it is not imported (or try in fresh new project). Also try importing it from the local location (desktop) if you are importing from the network to remove the permission issue.
