    PNG transparency not working when importing in AfterEffects

    laurelch Level 1

      I have been saving the pictures for Web & Devices -- PNG-8, transparency is checked, as far as Matte goes, I've selected "none" .... however, when I upload the images into After Effects, they all have white backgrounds instead of being transparent! I have combed the archives and can't seem to figure out what my problem is. If I ticked transparency, shouldn't it be transparent??

       

      Even with transparency selected, if I do click Matte, it will use that color as the background in AfterEffects. But especially if I have "none" selected for matte, why is there a background showing up? I realize that I could try PNG-24, but file size is absolutely essential, down to the kilobyte, so I need to keep it at PNG-8.
