I am wondering what the work flow is for exporting an image from Archicad that has a transparent background that can be imported into the user interface.
I can export an images from AC with Alpha Channel, however all four standard AC export image types come through with a white background e.g. *png, *jpg, *gif & *tiff (samples attached).
Using the following code
ui_pict "Test_Image", 15, 15, 140, 140, 1
The images come through looking like this:
Also is there a way to set the size of the image on export - the UI_PICT function calls for a specific size. When AC exports it seems to export the extents. I thought adding the red boundary would be a way to control the size but there seems to be a white border beyond this.
Is this what other people do or is there a better workflow for this?
Hi Barry, hehe I was wondering if I was doing something wrong with the Archicad Export alpha channel not working - I had tried every export option without success. I am glad it wasn't just me... All the best for you and yours at Christmas!
