transparency and alpha channels. I'll explain what I want to do, and hopefully someone can tell me how. I'm creating an image in a 3d modeling program. I want to export an image file (Targa, 32 bit, with Alpha Channels) into photoshop, then extract the alpha channel(that being the black background in this case) so that i'm left with the actual image of the 3d model over transparency, with which I can use to layer on top of things created in photoshop. Ok, that said, i'll explain it one more way, in hopes to make it clearer. I'm doing weather graphics for a news program, and have rendered out a cloud in a 3d modelling program(3d studio max). I want to import this image of the cloud into photoshop, and layer it over graphics I created in photoshop, minus the background created in the exporting from the 3d program.
