Outline effect creates slightly opaque background

Recommended Posts

Hello @mattscy and welcome to the forum :)


You don't say which Outline Plugin your are using?


I used @BoltBait's Outline and, although the color shows in the color wheel, the opacity is still zero.

Outline Object works identically regardless of whether it is Boltbait or Pyrochild plugin.
Behind the object we will have a clone of it with the color chosen for the outline.
Both plugins are excellent if the object we want to outline has a color whose opacity has the maximum value = 255.
If the opacity is different from this value it is advisable to use the Outline Selection plugin after we have previously selected the object.
However, the author of the post refers to something else that we could not reproduce.

If you're talking about Effects -> Stylize -> Outline, it's only really meant to be used with opaque images. If you're working with a transparent background, a plugin will be more useful.
