Hi,

If I save individual frames as 24 bit ( TIF or PNG ), all is well. If I save as 32 bit, I seem to lose a layer eg. my background becomes transparent.

What's happening - anyone know ?

Thanks,

Joe

The extra 8-bit are the alpha channel, the transparency information for the image. If you render in front of a backdrop, that gets knocked out.
Depending on the image format that information may still be there... if you have a way to import the image without the alpha.

Cheers,
Mike
