Hi Tim:

You don't say what you're setting the imageData of (I assume it's some kind
of display image), but as an alternative, you might try storing the 'text'
of the image/s to be displayed, and reference the text property instead of
imageData.  It sounds odd, but the text property of an image can refer to
both its image and alphaData together.
To store image data:
 set the uImage1 of this cd to the text of img 1
 set the uImage2 of this cd to the text of img 2

Then to display stored data:
 set the text of img "myDisplay" to the uImage1 of this cd
