Effects Tween

In Animate 2019 and newer this command is hidden by default. To enable it, go to Commands > EDAPT Control Panel > Manage Commands… and give it a check mark. After a restart it will appear in the menu.


  • Tween Effects mode Ctrl+4(tween)
    Tweens the values of Filters and Color Effects between any number of frames in a frame-by-frame sequence, created by Frames To Movieclips. First and last key in the selection must have Filters and/or Effects applied to them.
    Also can extend the Blending Mode applied to the first frame in the selection.
  • Clear Effects mode Shift+4(clear)
    Allows users to easily clear already applied Filters, Effects or Blending Mode with the press of a button. 

Suggested use

To easily and quickly tween the values of Filters or Color Effects.

We have a frame-by-frame sequence created by Frames To Movieclips, which spans from frame 60 to frame 90 on a single layer.
We'd like the animation to fade in from 60 to 75, while it is also blurred and then to get fully desaturated by frame 90, but losing the blur.
At #60 we apply the desired Blur filter and copy its value to #75. At #60 we also choose Alpha 0%. At #75 Alpha value should be 100% or none.
We select the range 60–75 and press Ctrl+4(tween); after choosing the desired type of easing the effects are tweened across the selected range of frames.
Then desired settings are applied to the second pair of keys (75 and 90) and Effects Tween is executed again over the 75–90 range.
