NVTT Plugin, Export not seeing alpha but standalone works fine

So I have both the standalone and the plugin. I love the plugin because its immediate and I don’t have to save my PSD every time (though that is good practice…)

The issue I have is PS has an alpha layer channel, but the plugin doesn’t see any alpha content. However if i save the psd and open it in the standalone, it sees the alpha. while using the exporter standalone is workaround, id prefer to get the plugin to work.

Is there a key im missing? because in the preview its all white in the plugin yet the alpha is very obviously in exporter
