Have you put the image in the alpha channel as well ?

 

Edit - just checked your scene - no you haven't. Do that, and everything will be fine if your image has an alpha channel...

    In your logo material, tick Alpha channel and load image into the Texture slot:

    It's working for me using your file without doing anything. Tile is unticked and it seems like it's placed correctly:

    If this isn't your final scene, can you upload a project that shows the issue.

    You've asked these questions about Alpha before in October last year and I've answered them on page 2 of the post you created back then:

    Good memory there, AB and well called-out ! ;)  It's a good reminder to new members to search existing threads before they post questions.

  • Hi Guys, thanks for pointing that out, but it doesn't seem to be working correctly still. Perhaps this is a Prime version issue? some of us can't afford the full version unfortunately ;)   and again when i try and place this logo in,  it repeats it. I'll look  back through your feedback, but pretty certain you didn't solve the repeating issue.

     

    thanks anyway

  • ps also guys, sometimes it's quicker just to post an issue as new content.. I can't find anything relating to repeating image graphic issues? So that will be why i posted it again. :)
