I want to start animating my illustrations by importing elements as PNG files to toon boom harmony (animation software) Everytime  I import the PNG file to toon boom they come out clitchy with strange patterns under them ( see screen grabs)

I'm currently using version 23.3.2 , I had to downgrade from the new version because a similar thing was happening but on the page whilst working.

 

All I want to do is import from photoshop my layers with transparency to enable me to animate with them but I have tried every possible way of doing this with the same result every time. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Why png and not psd? 

How do you create the png exactly (save or export)? 

 

Can you provide one of the pngs?

I'm using toon boon harmony which is an animation platform and I need the separate elements to be imported as a png.

I've tried inporting the psd master file into another drawing platform and saving the png from there but I still get the same glitchy backdrop to each element. I've saved png file in the past with CS6 with no problem.

You have to turn off the background layer and save as png ( this will make the background transparent, I used it to send artwork for Tshirt designs) Anyway I've been doing some diggin on youtube and it seems like Im able to inport as psd, I haven't tried yet but I'll post my results.

I tried to use the 'save for web' but it won't let you save as png. I saved as png via save as copy, then I tried :

Export >layers to file> this option keeps all the layers together.
