Particles not showing up in Premiere and AE
on Sep 5, 2008 at 1:19:46 am

Hey guys. I've made my particle effects to line up with my footage. i export the effects with all the alpha options except removing the black BG from the RGB.

However, when I import into AE or Premiere, the footage is invisible. I can see the footage in windows media player, and it also shows up in AE and Premiere if i ignore its Alpha...only problem then is I've got my effects on black.

I was following the tutorial from the wonder touch website but...no go. Any pointers?

thanks very much,

-Chris

If you load the rendered output back into particleIllusion, do the particles show? If not, the alpha channel is probably empty (not rendering).

Did you check the "create non-intense alpha" option? If so, and if all of the particles in the project are "intense", none of them will be added to the alpha channel. This is intended behavior -- check the docs.

Is the render occurring in particleIllusion itself, or in pIRender? If pIRender, you probably need to run pIRender manually and turn off hardware acceleration.

Did you choose a file format that has alpha?
AVI need to be specific as well a still file formats.
Just making sure in case you did not know this already.

Take care,
