Hello or "tervehdys" as we say here ...
I cant make cutout appearence work with attached images.
Trying to make simple perforated plate .
As I have understood IV should cut out black colour by attached jpeg.
Just cant figure out why wont work ?
(Earlier versions it use to be simple, defined by the pixel in the corner...)
Since they made some major changes to the appearances in 2013, I am not quite sure. But, the old way of doing it required you to end the texture filename with &. This is how Inventor knows that the color of the pixel should be transparent. See the attached file for an example.

Hey ,thanks Cwhetten for trying but as mentioned its different in IV2013
Inventor (quoted) wiki help gives a well detailed instruction but I cant find out what I´m doing wrong
"You do not have to use image-editing software capable of creating transparent pixels. Autodesk Inventor uses a bitmap interpretation scheme that assigns transparency to black areas within the image.
The image is used as the Cutout map in the Appearance Browser.
Am I strugling against windmills when beliveing what IV wiki help instructs to do.
How do You make Your custom appearances ?
it shouldnt be this tricky - I must be missing some siple trick.
Would be happy to receive example partfile & cutout image.
