Interesting - but unwanted - red cross-hair on image
Jul 02, 2012
I'm experiencing a mysterious issue with an image in my SL project. I have a png on a slide that has a red cross-hair behind it. Its not appearing in the image in the image editor (Fireworks & Photoshop) and it doesn't appear on the slide in the SL editor view. However, when I publish it (preview or final publish) - THERE IT IS!
I figured out what was causing it - and it seems to be a glitch in coding -
The png has a transparent background - i animated it to grow in and formatted it to have soft edges (13 px) and a red border. The glitch is that the red border appears as the red cross-hairs when publishing, but is invisible in edit-view. If you run into this problem, simply turn off the outline - cross-hair will disappear. I don't think you will be able to properly place a border on a transparent png that is animated to grow in.
Note to Articulate peeps:
In future SL updates, can we repair the coding so that the outline on a png with transparent background appears in edit mode - and that the outline is an actual outline, instead of cross-hairs?
