If you have a white textfield and you try to fade it in from alpha 0 to 1, on the end of the tween it will look like there is a sudden jump, like there is another layer of white applied on the textfield.

I really dont know how to describe it better, I have encounter this many times…

This actually applies for colors 0xcccccc to 0xffffff.

In other words I cannot use too light text color if I cannot ignore this thing, which I cant :D

Why is this happening, is there a way to solve this?

Did you set publish flash player version to 10 ? I remember this happen in FP9 or earlier version of players.

EDIT .If you need use FP9 maybe try embed font for that text field.

Are you using a timeline tween or actionscript tween? Here is what I do:

- Make text field a movie clip.

- Set the text field “anti-alias” to “animation”.

I don’t get that “jump” you are referring to, but I have seen it before on some sites.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, but setting anti-alias to animation ruins text look all together…

txt_mc.blendMode=”layer” (or you can change this in properties’ panel)
txt_mc.alpha=0.5

but txt_mc background color should be 0×000000 or at least <= 0xcccccc gray color ;)

p.s haha ,the same time
