Export_Alpha_Png/Gif_With_Active_Camera

Hello TVPaint staffs:

I am running into some technical issue here. Please help me out because I am expecting to deliver this assignment next week, thanks!
I have two questions:

First, when I export png sequence with transparency, it does just fine. However, if I check the camera on (Because I want the camera size), then I export the sequence, it turns all transparency to white ??? Check the reference picture.
Having on and off the camera check will effect the format no matter how we set the setting?

Second, can I export gif with transparency?

Thanks!
Hope we have an answer :)

Answer to both: works here.
- check RGBA
- uncheck background.

To get transparency with the Camera View export you have to set Background to "NONE" here:

Thanks for you guys' help and spending your time replying to this email.

It works now! :) especially I didn't know the trick of turn off the BG!

Hm...the gif quality is not that good :/. I might export them as png sequence and use photoshop to export them then.
And how, it is a great help!
