How to erase object background

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Fri May 14, 2010 12:26 pm

Hello,

I started to learn to do things with Construct, because I have no experiences with programming. I got trough some tutorials succesfully and finally start to create adventure game, because I even got graphic objects which I can use, that means I can learn other things during solving a specific problems.

However my first specific problem is the dumbest one. Please I need to know how I can make dissapear background of any object. Normally it should look like this:



..but even after trying different collors of the background anch changing formats it still look like this:



Can you please direct me somewhere or say how it works?

Thanks

I could be wrong, but I don't think Construct uses a specific color for transparency. Normally you should load images that already have an alpha channel; for example, PNGs.

However, you can get rid of the background around that art by selecting the outside part with the magic wand tool and deleting it.

Magenta - 255, 0, 255

But for some reason whenever you save them out of the Construct editor, it appears black in programs like Paint but stays transparent in Construct.

You have to save them as *.png to confirm your changes. Paint will always show background as a black.
