    Edius doesn't turn it on Ind off. If there is a alpha channel it till be transparent if not it won't be. :)

    It only reads it.

    It is a setting that is in Photoshop. When you save the photo in PS, it is one of the small boxes that come up in the save dialog. I think it is in the middle of the box. I know it comes up in psd, tiff and other file types.

    32bit tga is the most used standard for logos and stills and has no impact on realtime performance at all

    You can also use .png for transparency.

    Should work fine. Does the TIFF have multiple layers, or perhaps was it saved 24-bit and not 32-bit?

    started a topic Setting alpha channel transparency

    Setting alpha channel transparency

    I feel this should be easy.

    I have a .tiff company logo, with a transparent background, made in PS.
    I need to place it into my video, keeping the transparent background so you can see the video underneath.
    Then I need to add some extra simple text titles.

    I can't get Edius to show (or not show) the transparency.
    I have VA2 logo
    VA1 video
    title will go in title track.

    In premiere I used to r/click the video track and choose transparency>alpha channel.

    I can't find any way of doing this by clicking on the video track, the box to the left of it or the still.

    I've looked in my manual at transparency and alpha channel, but it doesn't help.
    I've F1'd and read what it says about alpha, but it doesn't help.
    I've searched the topics for alpha and transparency, but they don't help, though I'm sure I read one a ferw days ago about this.
