using raster images with transparency - screws up on export

using raster images with transparency - screws up on export

using raster images with transparency - screws up on export

When i use a raster image with transparency in Freehand (i.e. an imported PNG), the vector objects beind the image's transparent area have no anti-aliasing applied when exported to a single layer image.

The only time they do anti-alias is behind any raster effects - but the raster effects screw up the positioning of the image.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is this a bug I will have to get used to or is there a way I can fix it?


RE: using raster images with transparency - screws up on export

I worked it out. It exports fine when the raster image is at 100% scale. So i just scaled it down in an external program and imported it at 100% scale and its sorted.
