I'm creating animations for web in AE with transparency (animated buttons with text, animated illustrations, etc.). I have been using the Apple ProRes 444 codec, then using a converter to convert to webM but found that there are some issues with transparency when testing on web. Should I be using the Animation codec instead? And what is the difference between them?
ProRes 444 doesn't support alpha channels, for one thing. However, ProRes 4444 does.
As for differences, The ProRes family of codecs is 10-bit. Animation is 8-bit. That may not matter. But if you're making animated buttons & animated drawings, Animation may produce more compact file sizes because of the way it encodes.
