Create an alpha channel in FCP
on Jun 16, 2011 at 3:35:19 pm

I keep getting handed logos with white backgrounds. Is there a way to create an alpha channel on such a logo (tiff) in FCP? I've seen the great tutorial by Richard Harrington and it seems a snap to add the alpha channel in CS (which I don't have), but people keep sending me jpegs and tiffs with no alpha channel. Is there a way I can add the AC in FCP without doing a matte (which always seem to come out jaggy)??? Thanks for insight and suggestions. --Dave

I don't know if I'd use FCP for this chore. I'd gravitate more towards doing it in Motion, which I believe can render out sill images (I'm an After Effects guy, only use Motion when there's a gun put to my head).

Motion has much more sophisticated ways to preserve edge quality & Image quality than FCP.
