Transparent Image Prop background shows up as white

Recommended Posts

I erased the background in a photo in Photoshop and when I import it into Vectorworks 2014 to create an image prop, the transparent portion appears a solid white when rendered. What am I missing? Thank you!

Transparency from Photoshop will not be imported. You'll have to redo it inside Vectorworks when you create the Image Prop. You can also fix it after creating the Image Prop by editing the texture (right click texture in RB and choose "Edit" > Transparency > Image Mask > Edit > Transparent Color Mask (you may have to click on "Change Image" and reselect your image file to activate it) >click on the white background on the "Source Image" thumbnail).

That's a very short explanation. If it's too confusing I can post a more detailed one.
