As you can see, I am trying to apply PI emitter (candle flame) to the candle on the left (an animation used with Window Blinds and Skin Studio atop of Start Menu)
It is transparent -
The other candle is animated as well but only "flickers" inside of the candle (using Photoshop animation and brushes)and is opaque.
Here, same issue but with animated cursor (applied with CursorFX)- The wand cursor emits a blue glow (done in PI) and try as I might, I can not get the emitter to apply without the resulting transparent effect on the PNG file.
For contrast, the same cursor is "depressed" to illustrate the difference.
