exporting frame by frame images
on Nov 14, 2007 at 9:48:21 pm

Thankyou Elvis for answering my last question.

My new problem is: I have exported the animation frame by frame and also with transparent background. the images look great, but I am wondering am I saving them properly? They need to have the transparent background, but I wonder, Is there some buttons, or settings I should be adjusting? The reason why I am asking this, is because the animation is not working when applied to skinstudio for my windowblinds skin (they work frame by frame)

so I am confused as to why its not working.

mathmatically, in my mind they should be working, the animation frames are saved as png, and I just copy and paste those onto my image from 1 to 120, (or depending on how big the animation is) and therefore I have the string of frames for my animation. this has always worked in the past........so any help would be great!

Ummm...

Did you check the "Save Alpha" box?

Alpha Channel = Transparency.

Hope that helps.

Peace.

Sorry to "Double Post" but I could find no way to edit!

You said "Window Blinds" and I never used that program, but have experience with another Stardock program called Desktop X Builder.

In that software Alpha Transparency does not work. It uses what they call "Magic Pink" (rgb values 255,000,255) for it's "Transparent Index" - if Window Blinds works similarly, that could be the problem (I only noticed you said it worked outside of WB after I posted!). Use those values for the background color and see what happens.

Good Luck with it...
