Having been using Maya for too long .. Am I crazy or does LW not show alpha transparency with image maps in OpenGL?

All I see is black - but it renders fine.

Please tell me I'm crazy! :)

No, I don't believe it does show in open Gl. It doesn't for me. Like when I color the lips, I use a surface that surrounds the mouth, I color the whole area red with an image map, but I have an alpha to trim the color so it only appears on the lips. In open GL, it looks like she doesn't know how to put lipstick on because it's on the areas around the mouth too. You're not crazy.

Too bad really - I'm always pluging LW over Maya - I might have to change my mind now since this annoys me hehe.
