I am using beginGradientFill() to generate a dark oblong, on top of which I have attached an mc containing a png with a transparent background.

The edges of the png are visible, as discussed here:

I have tried the suggested workarounds but none of them appear to work. In fact I am already using a gradient - which, according to Macromedia, should eliminate the ghosting! How very Flash.. can anyone offer me additional guidance please?

Hi lammontoya, thanks for the reply

A bit more Googling has revealed this:

It seems 24-bit Photoshop PNGs still ghost. I don't use Fireworks (which can export 32-bit pngs which don't ghost) so it seems easier for me to convert image to flv with alpha channel.. jah bless Flash 8!

Points are yours for caring
