White backgound makes OPTICS unworkable

Hi guys and gals,

I have a problem when I want to use an OPTICS filter on the element with a transparent background. When I open OPTICS, my element is shown on a white background, so it’s not possible to see what I’m doing, and makes the OPTICS totally unusable. Is there a way to change the background color to black?

It’s the same on both regular layer and smart object.

Your are running Optics 2021 which lacked alpha support and brought in white within transparent areas. Since you have white text over transparency, everything is white. You would need to upgrade to Optics 2022 which has alpha support and would handle the issue you are encountering.
