using bitmap masks

(OP)
how can you use a bitmap as a mask layer? Do you use black and white, or a monotone transparent?

RE: using bitmap masks

I am looking to do the same thing, but ended up playing with transparent gradient fills using different shapes such as elipses. Importing an image as GIF, I don't believe can handle more than one transparrent colour, for a nice smooth edge. Photoshop 5.5 can handle the new PNG graphics format, but may not be supported by Flash yet.

Let me know if you find a way to import an image and use it as a shaded mask.
