ViewCaptureToClipboard Transparent Background is Black

When I use ViewCaptureToClipboard with transparent background, it looks ok in the preview but then is black in Photoshop?

Hello - what format are you exporting? Try Tiff.


I don’t see an option to specify a file type using this command?

Hello - ah - clipboard… yeah, saving to a file might be a better bet.

Otherwise, making a new channel in PS from the black…


Ok, ya I’ve done that, but just wasn’t sure if there’s a way to do it from Clipboard. Thought I was missing something. Thanks though.

Hi, I have saved as Tiff and still experiencing the same black background.

When I open the file in Photoshop it appears as transparent, but not in other software.

What do you mean by this @pascal?

Edit: It seems the transparency works after I open the Tiff and save it in Photoshop, but for some reason the file size increases considerably compared to the Rhino export, even after using compression on the Tiff while saving in Photoshop.
