Blend Mode Picker

A command to apply blend modes to your movieclips through a dialog box, rather than hand coding.

A command to apply blend modes to your movieclips through a dialog box, rather than hand coding.

When targeting HTML5, only Normal and Add blending modes are available through the Adobe Animate GUI, but all the other blend modes still exist via the javascript compositeOperation property. This command allows you to apply compositeOperation blend modes through a popup dialog box, rather than having to hand code them. Simply select the movieclips you want to apply blend modes to, run the command, and pick your blend mode from the dropdown list. The selected blend mode will be applied to all selected movieclips. If you change your mind, simply repeat the process and the command will overwrite your previous blend mode with your new selection.

-------Important Notes-------
[1] The command will only work on movieclips as it adds a new layer containing the compositeOperation javascript code inside the movieclip. It cannot be applied to art that has not been converted to a symbol, and it cannot be applied to graphic symbols as they do not execute javascript code contained within them.

[2]The blend mode effect will not appear on the stage, it will only be visible upon export in your published HTML5 file.
