Importing a postcard: a PSD with an alpha?
on Nov 9, 2011 at 9:30:01 am

Basic question:

I want to import a PSD with an alpha and set is up like a postcard. The desired result is to have a 2D 'cut out' shape.

I've created a new material and loaded the file in to the transparency channel, but I can't figure out how to scale it up or how to basically make it work.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Best regards,

Kevin Camin

Hey Kevin,

You should be loading that alpha image into the alpha channel of the material instead of the transparency. to scale things up / move them around you need to be on texture mode, it's located in the same panel as your polygon/point/edge/object modes.
