I created a png image in photoshop (a silhouetted star with a transparent background).
I then imported it into flash 8 to use it as a mask layed over another image (jpeg of mountain terrain).
Herein lies the problem: The png is behaving like its fully non-transparent (the transparent part of the image is not blocking my jpg image even though it should).
I have spent 3 hours researching this but to no avail.
I've checked "caching as bmp" articles and "png as mask" articles. I've also tried tracing it in flash but it comes out messy.
Can somebody please shine some light on this and break it down step by step in laymans terms what the hell I need to doing.
(We have all this technology in the world and yet flash can't let me import an external png and set it as a mask. I am so pissed.)
Help me DaniWeb, your my only hope.
