Hello. I am working on a small Macromedia Flash project, just learning more about Flash and getting acquainted with the Flash interface as well as Actionscript; my question is not in regards to Actionscript as I have not began adding this yet-- I am only testing some animation at this point.
The odd problem I am having is as follows:
I am editing small JPEG files to run as animation, simply cutting away the background and then mounting them onto the stage-- this works, that is, the animation works as it should. The problem is with the JPEG display; when adding these to the stage the image that should have a transparent background (as they appear to have in Photoshop during editing) now display with a white background. :confused: The animation works fine, but the JPEG background is white, not transparent. It needs to be transparent.
I tried re-editing in Photoshop multiple times with a new, set transparency then rebuilding the animation but still it does not work-- the background of the image layer is white. I cannot determine what the problem is. Is it:
- a conflict between Macromedia MX and Photoshop? This does not seem probable.
- Should I be saving the file as a Bitmap or GIF instead of a JPEG? The JPEG seems to have worked properly in other tests?
- I have used Photoshop extensively in graphic design, GUI programming in Python, etc, and have never had this problem; that leads me back to thinking it may perhaps be a software conflict between MX and Photoshop.
This is not a huge issue as the animation with MX is working fine :cheesy:but I cannot proceed with these image results.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank-you in advance.
