Using Titles From AE in FCP as a Clean Overlay
on May 6, 2010 at 6:13:32 pm

I have made some simple name titles for a for a corporate video in After Effects.
I then exported them via the Render Queue as using the "best" settings to maintain the highest possible quality.
When I drop these titles into Final Cut Pro the background is black (not transparent as I would like), so I have to mess with the composite modes in FCP to get the titles to appear over my footage, but when I do that, the end result is not accurate to the original compiste from After Effects and the colors shift and things just get generally out of whack.
The fact that we have to use different composite modes in FCP works for the time being for me, but the final version of this project should be accurate to what is being exported from AE.

You have to export using the Animation codec - Millions of colors+, which carries an alpha channel.

So go over to the After Effects forum, where you'll find the information you need: specifically the difference between Straight and Premultiplied alpha channels.

Brett I'll tell you what has happened to me and that is I set up the titles with a background to see how it looks and I've forgotten to turn the eyeball off before rendering. Even if you render with an alpha if you have a background then the background shows.
