Transparency channels from TGA and TIFF files ?

Recommended Posts


New user of Affinity but a long time user of Photoshop.

I am opening a TGA (and TIFF) fuiles with embedded alpha channels which were created in 3ds max .

I cannot see how to select the transparent pixels.


In PS it is very simple I Ctrl+Click the alpha channel and get the selection but in Affininty i cant even see the al[ha channel

All i get it a white channel without any black pixels.


Where have my transparent pixels gone ???

Welcome to the forums.


We are aware of an issue with TIFF files with alpha channels created in 3ds max that is currently with our developers to look into. If you can upload a copy of your file I can take a look to see if the same issue.
