Have been following your thread with interest and since you haven't had much
response to date,  I will jump in with  my  measly 2 cents

Although I use kpt in another program and haven't tried to do what you propose,

(standard what the heck do I know disclaimer)

I have often found problems like this to be some simple thing overlooked.  Here
are a couple of things to doublecheck.  In the "heat of the hunt" boy is it
easy to overlook something simple.

Area selected on image?

All PS settings checked?  Background and foregrounds set to black and white?

KPT options reset to normal  Ctrl E? Oddball things can happen with leftover
setting still in place until cleared, I have manually set everything to my new
action and  still couldn't get it til I cleared  with control E and started
over.  Most common symptom of this is  you can't see your image on the viewer,
just the PS foreground or background  color.

If your using a preset for your gradient have you checked the opacity setting
of that particular gradient?  (this one has had me scratching my head several

Hopefully someone will post behind me with some more precise information.




1. KPT Gradient designer: Alpha channel import trouble

I haven't been able to get this to work either. It appears that this
is one of the little goodies that Kai gave to the Mac world, but
decided that those that bought the PC version of his program were not
entitled to use. I have a 3rd party book on KPT filters and there seem
to be a number of Mac only features (from Kai and what the author of
the book provided on the CD). None of them seem to be of real great
importance, more an annoyance and reminder of the the
authors/applications roots.
