    How do I work on a transparent "canvas" instead of black?

      I've been working with Sony Vegas for 5 years but after getting my first Macbook earlier this week I learned that Vegas and Mac aren't compatible!

       

      One thing with vegas I was very used to was having the background of my project being the usual checkered white and gray transparency. Also, if I added an image that had a transparent background, such as a .png, the transparency was preserved.

       

      On Premiere, my main workspace appears as black, and if I move an image with a transparent background, the transparency is replaced with solid black as well. What can I do to fix this to the way I'm used to? Also, if there's a way to make enabling a transparent "canvas" to start with as part of my default options, help with that would be great too.

       

      Thanks!
