    Transparency of graphics in PrintJob

    Thistledowne Level 1

      Am I missing some crucial documentation or switch that causes elements that are rendered with transparency intact on a screen, but when the sprite is then sent to a PrintJob, those elements are rendered completely opaque.

       

      For instance, if I have two overlaping ellipses


      with(es.graphics)
      {
          beginFill(0x6b7ad1, .5);
           drawEllipse(0, 70, 440, 400);
           endFill();


           beginFill(0xb29ed1, .5);
           drawEllipse(220, 70, 440, 400);
          endFill();

      }

       

      There of course is no blended region, the second fill is entirely opaque.

       

       

      I've messed with the Print As Bitmap stuffies to no avail.

       

      While on that subject, a PNG included in that printjob looks like garbage, even if there is no alpha/transparency.
