Hello, I'm reading transparent PNG images and overlaying them. But the result has a black background.

I dont know what is happening. Here is my code.

Code:
Set objBitmap = Server.CreateObject("GraphicsMill.BitMap")
objBitMap.LoadFromFile Server.MapPath ("1.png")
		
Set objBitmap2 = Server.CreateObject("GraphicsMill.BitMap")
objBitMap2.LoadFromFile Server.MapPath ("2.png")
		
objBitmap.DrawOnBitMap objBitMap2,0,0
		
objBitMap2.SaveToFile Server.MapPath("oi.png")


Thanks in advance.

You should specify alpha blending combine mode in DrawOnBitmap method. By default it just copies pixels instead of alpha blending. So use this code:

objBitmap.DrawOnBitMap objBitMap2 0, 0, , , , , , , , 1

If it won't help, please submit case with your PNG files.

We did not receive files from you. Could you resend it again?

Both images are 8-bit indexed bitmaps (i.e. palette based rather than common RGB values). Indexed images cannot be alpha blended.

So you should convert them to 32-bit ARGB before blending:

Code:
' load bitmaps ...
objBitmap1.Data.ConvertTo32bppArgb
objBitmap2.Data.ConvertTo32bppArgb
' blend bitmaps...


This should help.

Hello,

This feature is not supported directly (i.e. you cannot just specify the GIF file and control start displaying it). However you can manually draw frames of the animated GIF on the bitmap.

Hope this helps.
