Hi everyone,

I wanna interpolate the opacity of an AnimatedSprite using a Tween node in Godot 3.0, but there's no opacity property in the inspector, since I tried


which worked fine in 2.1, but has no effect here.
Does that mean they haven't implemented it yet or am I using the wrong property string?

In 3.0, the property is modulate, which combines color and transparency.

To tween the property, since the value is a Color, you have to give two colors as an argument. So to just fade the sprite you'd do this:

$Tween.interpolate_property($AnimatedSprite, "modulate", 
    Color(1, 1, 1, 1), Color(1, 1, 1, 0), 2.0, 
    Tween.TRANS_LINEAR, Tween.EASE_IN)

Thanks, it works!
I actually got there, but I kept using Color(255, 255, 255, 0) because I got confused with CSS :p
BTW I love your videos, keep up the good work!
