Ok, our graphics guy is out of communication and we need to throw together a few overlays.

I go into "Edit Text" and create my overlay with a transparent .png, but when it exports and go to use it on the Tricaster it is not transparent.

I found this tutorial, but I think it is written before the Edit Text tab existed. http://www.newtek.com/tricaster/tut_customizetemplate.php

With the assumption that I can make .png or .tga in photoshop, what do I need to do to have that transparent layer?

--edit--
NM, added the alpha channel properly and got it to work.
