    Transparant Background for Imported JPEGS/GIFS/PNG

    Hi!

    I got a PNG file with some writing on it for a corporate video, but it has a transparant background (because its someones name and the company want to use the right font)

    When i import it, it completely ruins the image and disposes the transparant background...

     

    My options do NOT include:

    - Getting the font online (it's £200!)

    - Getting the font type off the company (They have the font on MAC, We use PC.

     

     

    Can anyone help me out?

    When you enter the import dialog click on Options.  Check that you have the alpha channel set to Invert.  Then go ahead with the import.
