How to Export text with transparent background?
on Jan 23, 2012 at 7:40:16 pm

I just created a basic text in AE 5.5 and now I want to bring it into FCP 7. I want the AE file to have a transparent background so that I can lay any video underneath it in Final Cut. How do I do this?
Thanks so much.

You need to render your video with an alpha channel. In your Render Queue, for the Output Module, choose the "Lossless with Alpha" preset. Later, you may want to customize things, but for now that should get the job done.

PS Make sure your background is in fact transparent: click the checkerboard background box at the bottom of your comp window in AE to verify that the only thing that will be rendering is the text, the rest transparent....
