    Hi jPV and thank you for your top quality software.
    I have one question about the RNOEffects.
    I have a lots of PNG files with APLHA images, (images are sequences of some effects like fire, smoke and fire with 90 or more frames).
    It is possibile to convert batch of images with RNOEffects and save only ALPHA images from PNG files?
    I was doing this with FXPaint and it is frustrating to load, invert and save lots of images one by one.
    Thank you and best regards

    Mm... do you mean that you want to save a blank image with the alpha channel from the original image? Or the alpha channel as a luminance based image or something like that?

    Could you send me examples of the original image and resulting image of your FXPaint conversion, so that I would understand better what do you want to achieve?

    This is original png file.

    ...and this is what I save from FXPaint after.

    I use this images in Lightwave, one for original texture and second bw for alpha transparency.
    I was try only smoke effect (90 images converted in fx paint) and its looks great rendered in LW, but its was very time consuming to save 90 images one by one.
    Hope this help and thank you

    I created a new effect in RNOEffects for this. There's now the "Opacity map" effect, which can be used to create an opacity map image (a grayscale image describing the transparency level) from the alpha channel of the loaded image. You can also apply such a map back to an image to add transparency.

    So, to batch convert loads of files, open the Opacity map effect window, leave it in the "Create image" mode, and add files in the Batch convert window and start the conversion process.

    Here's a "test" executable, which can be copied over the previous installation: RNOEffects exe
