This question already has an answer here:
I recently downloaded Blender to do some 2d cut-out animation, so I'm a complete newbie.
After separating my drawing into parts in Photoshop (with transparent backgrounds), and saving them as PNG's. I tried importing them into Blender as separate planes but, can't see the transparency. I tried saving the files different ways, and the individual pieces display properly on Photoshop and Gimp.
There's probably an obvious answer but, I just don't see it
I'm using version 2.76
Any help would be greatly appreciated
