Alpha Channel in FCP. Desperate!
on Jun 18, 2012 at 10:29:54 am

I create graphics with alpha channels on a regular basis and give it to our video editor to place in videos. Mostly lower thirds and little bugs. I have never had a problem before, but all of a sudden the Alpha channel isn't showing up for him. I have gone back and watched Richard Harrington's tutorial on saving alpha for video, but everything seems to be exactly as he is doing it and the same way I have done it for over a year.

When I open the tifs in Photoshop, I see the transparency, but I notice when I view them in the finder window, the transparency doesn't show. In previous files I have done like this, it does.

Any thoughts on mistakes I can be making?

I have checked:
File is in RGB
Alpha Channels saved
Save Transparency unchecked

I have even tried saving as a tga and as a png and those haven't worked for him either.

Thoughts?

The file can be found here: 4301_alphatest3.tif.zip
