I am returning to Director after a long break...
I used to use Director MX2004 with the Photocaster and Alphamania Xtras.
I'm now using Director 11.5 on a PC.
I have created an image in Photoshop, on a transparent background. I'd like to import it into Director.
I used to do this via Photocaster/Alphamania, however, these have been discontinued and the free trials watermark the image.
I would have thought, since Adobe now own both Photoshop and Director, that it would be simple to import the file ? But, despite trying in .psd / .gif / .png it won't show up on my stage ? The only way I can get it to show up is using the trail version of Alphamanis - but that watermarks it ?
Can someone please advise me ?
I use png format and works very well !
Ginod is right - PNG should work fine, but you say you tried it and it failed. Were there any error messages, or do you just get an empty cast member? If the latter, was the cast member named the same as the PNG file? Can you upload a copy of a PNG that fails import?
Most of the time i just drag and drop as direct import. Link to external file, never works good to me.
