If you are trying to use a texture that has transparent parts I believe you can use a transparency map(read about them in the manual) with that texture to make those areas clear or semi-clear, depending on the grayscale level of the trans. map. One note; I'm pretty sure I've seen that the ART raytracer does not support transparency, so transparent areas will show up as shadows.

i think u can just get a regular texture, put it on ur object, and change the transparency in the materials((http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/4686/materials.png)) hope this helped
