New frame is all black, onionskin is not visible

I had a lot of trouble with this, unfortunately.

I’m using aseprite and for reasons I don’t understand, every sprite I downloaded from spriters-resource (apart from the Gameboy one in the video; I tried a bunch of Super Mario ones) would create a completely black “new empty frame”, rather than a transparent one. These black pixels were deletable but everything behind was black too. The onionskin did not show on this black background. My current background colour was set to a transparent “Mask” so I don’t know why the new frame was black.

Any hints?

Hey, I got the same issues as yourself. Did you ever find a solution?

Hi @Deadhead, sorry it’s been a long time and I don’t recall if I did find a solution. I hope you’re able to find one. If you do, feel free to post it here in case others have the same issue.
