Alpha channel export to FCP
on Oct 11, 2005 at 2:01:41 am

I have been having trouble bringing in single frames into FCP from photoshop. I was told if you use a transparent background and draw on top of that and export you will have ur alpha channel. When I bring it to fcp the backdrop is white and I have to sit there and key it out. Any suggestions? With after effects I make a title and render out animation with rgb+ alpha and it works great.

Try the search posts option and you'll find an answer.. or even just look half a page down at the subject Alpha?

When creating a Photoshop file make sure the content is set to transparent. Also make sure that the layer is not named BACKGROUND.

FCP will recognize PSD opacity automatically.

But not layer styles, or blending modes, or if you change the stacking order of layers, or add layers etc.

Stay away from layered PSD import into FCP unless its an absolute must.
