Transparency in ILBM

Hi!

I have an issue converting PNGs, GIFs, etc... To the ILBM format such that the ILBM preserves the original alpha settings. I have tried so far Deluxe Paint, PPaint and UConv and none of them are able to convert to an ILBM that preserves the alpha channel.

Is there a native solution to this with a program perhaps on the Amiga? I can manage that on OS X or Windows but I was wondering if there is a native Amiga program that can do that. On the other hand, GIFs display fine on the Amiga with the GIF datatype...

Thanks!

Deluxe Paint uses "background colour" that is transparent. No matter which coloro position from the palette it is.

I did not fiddle too much: I opened the GIF and then saved it as ILBM and apparently the transparency was lost. Is there something I should do?

I have managed to do this with UltraConv: the only problem with UltraConv is that for some reason it immediately deletes the output file. Not sure why... I have to click "Pause" to stop it from deleting the output file.

Save it as "Brush" in Deluxe Paint.
