exporting alpha-embedded movie files from Motion?
on Jul 13, 2007 at 9:25:17 pm

i've heard talk of this to speed up playback and rendering in FCP, but i can't seem to get the right settings (at least not for supered graphics that have an alpha channel). i usually just put the Motion project in FCP (which yields horrendous render times), or i've also exported a targa image sequence from Motion, then imported them into their own sequence in FCP and then use that sequence in other sequences...but seems like a few too many steps.

if there is a better way to export an alpha-ed Motion project i'm all ears! : )
