Ok, i started the bug report for PNG support:
Anyway, it doesn't seems a bug, the program actually tell you that the PNG
was found with 4 channels, and only 3 are supported. But why? With 3
channels you can't have transparency, so you loose a lot.

In ambulant what are ways to format text? From what i have seens there are
no way and text will just be centered in the region specified. Is there any
way to format it like in RealText?

Please file a bug report for Ambulant, then. Note that this is no guarantee
that the bug will actually get fixed (there are only so many hours in a day,
unfortunately:-) but at least we'll know about it.

Also, note that the better the bug report the better the chances that it'll
get fixed (or at least looked at). So if you supply SMIL+images that we can
download and run to see the bug (plus information on the platform you use
and any other things that may be relevant) it's much more likely to be
looked at soon than if simply trying to recreate the problem takes hours. As
a point in case here: trying to recreate the situation you sketch here
(4-channel PNG has a problem with
transparency) without additional information would take the better part of a
day: how do I create a 4-channel PNG, what is it that doesn't work, on which
platform, in which situation (stacked regions?  
Transitions? Something else?).
