Flatten Tiff, but preserve alpha channel

I want to flatten a layered tiff while retaining the alpha channel.

using this:
convert ../source.tif -alpha on -layers flatten -filter lanczos -resize 1024x1024 -unsharp 1x0.5 %temp%/temp.tga

I lose my alpha channel, what should be transparent turns opaque white.

Re: Do i need all 50 MB of ImageMagick?

ok, I understand that *all * the junk in the imageMagick folder is in fact needed.
in that case simple passing ImageMagick-6.8.6-9-Q16-x64-dll.exe to the art team should be sufficient.

Re: Do i need all 50 MB of ImageMagick?

Re: Do i need all 50 MB of ImageMagick?

the image magick downloads I can locate form the download page do not appear to include these portable or dll versions.
at least, a download of such is not easily identifiable by the link names.

where do I find the dll version?
where do I find the portable version?

Re: Strange "add" behaviour

nice! 2 questions: 1.) NVIDIA tools include a DXT5n compression setting for compressing normal maps -which is useful as normal maps require careful compression to preserve the normal data. any such options for imagemagick? 2.) Some utilities allow specifying the number of mip levels. at my studio, w...

Do i need all 50 MB of ImageMagick?

I'm building art tools for game development I use ImageMagick command lines to process some of the textures. Now I'm faced with building the tool installs for the art team, and I'd prefer to keep it a lightweight as possible. I see the install folder for IamgeMagick is around 50 MB I find that conve...
