Post subject:  Importing picture with a transparent background from Affinity

I created the artwork at the beginning of the video below in Affinity Photo by importing a .pdf, converting it to .jpg and removing the white background. When I exported, it had a checkerboard background, which indicates it is transparent, but when I put it on the timeline in LF, it had a white background again. Is there a way to separate the lettering from the background?

I’m thinking that the export from Affinity is the wrong file type and doesn’t actually have a transparent background. A .png has transparent background but you might have to import it straight into LumaFusion. I think that going through Photos converts it back to a jpg too.

Hello,
It isn't issue of luma fusion, you are exporting non transparent background file.
You must select transparent background in canvas, And export png or other type which has transparent BG

I finally got it to work by exporting the layer rather than the whole picture.
