Hi,

People mention using adjustment layer and shape layer in AF can make layer transparency not not work for me.
I also tried the FAQ "All of your examples show adding particleIllusion to a solid layer. How do I make the layer transparent?" but still not working?
Any idea?

I just created something in Particle Ill. and then went to the red record button and saved as a PNG sequence then clicked the Alpha checkbox then remove black from bg from RGB channels. you can also try create non intense alpha if needed but i didn't have to check that in my test.
Then i just imported it into AE and dropped it below the layer i wanted it over in the time line.
Background image on first layer then the png sequence on the layer below that in AE and it went right in no problem.
Hope this helps

CJ

Daniel -- what are you trying to do exactly? You want your particles to show up on top of an image or video in AE?

I'm sorry i mis read the prev. post. He is using the plug in not the stand alone PI.
I was able to export the png seq. and use it in AE just fine. Daniel said he was having issues so i created a test project.
Maybe you can walk him though it using the plugin since i was using the stand alone program it might be different.
