I'm trying to export a TGA image sequence (with alpha) using quicktime conversion. I learned that the sequence needs to be unrendered so the alpha channel shows up. The problem arises when there's a fade in or fade out in the sequence.
Let's say there's a fade in at the beginning of the video:
1st frame: tga is white, so complete transparency
2nd frame: the bg becomes a little greyer
last frame of the fade in: bg is now completly black (no transparency)
1st frame after the fade in and for the rest of the clip: bg is white, complete transparency
I received a TGA sequence of a dancer (originally, he was in front of a green screen but the footage was keyed) with a transparent bg. I made an animation sequence in QT and imported it in FCP. What I want is the dancer to slowly appear/disappear. Originally, I used a cross dissolve. After your comments, I used the pen tool and keyframed opacity, with the same results. I also used the fade in-out effects, with no luck.
