    Is there a way to hide an objects image whilst playing any of it's animations?

    It should automatically hide an objects sprite when you manually trigger an animation that is included in the animation section of the object. If it's not doing that, then you may need to create another object for the animations & hide the other object when you play the animation or create the objects image as the default animation with a single frame set to loop infinitely.

    i experienced that the original image from objects dont hide when an animation from it gets played. But you could change the visibility of the object to 0. I barely can remember that the animation was still visible even when the object image was hidden.

    In 4.x the image should hide & the animation should play. In 3.7.1 the opacity of the object didn't used to affect the animations associated with the scene object, but it seems to affect them in 4.x?

    Or maybe this works differently, depending on the OS?

    * edit: maybe something changed between 4.0.1 & 4.2 as it no longer seems to hide the object sprite in one of the objects I setup a while back.

    Hi,

    Can you confirm that this is a bug and will therefore be fixed in a future release?

    In which case I do not need to work around the issue, because it will all work fine when the bug is fixed.
    Many thanks.

    I tested it out and i have to manually turn the visibillity of the object to 0 to prevent displaying the animation AND normal object image at the same time in Visionaire Editor 4.2, freeware version (Build: 1182).
    Visibility of the object image doesnt affect the animation visibility
