Please Help with Transparency Issue!
on Oct 3, 2007 at 4:38:14 am


Tried searching heavily for an answer to this problem...so here it goes.

I have an animation in ImageReady that's been edited with transparency, ready to export. However, when I export and try to import into AE or even Final Cut, I lose alpha (becomes white).

This is not for web, and the Flash file wont do (unless there's no alternative I guess).

I'm sure its an easy fix. Perhaps there is a certain format to export as? I've tried several different types; Animation, Uncompressed to name a few, but it becomes a variety of the same issue.

If anyone can help me I'd greatly appreciate it!
Thanks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

I agree with Richard. If you're going to video, remove IR from your workflow and stick to AE, it's like photoshop for video.
It has a crazy learning curve, but the results are worth the effort. :)
You can use Multiply, or other blending modes to knock-out an image. Plus, there are a bunch of other color keying options.
AE has a pretty easy-to-use layer mask function, it's vector, and you can keyframe it's motion if necessary.
You can prepare PSD files and bring 'em into AE.

Just some thoughts...
