This is a very important update and something that opens a considerable amount of doors for developers.

Not to rain on your parade… but alpha support's actually been there since day 1 of HEVC in macOS. Merely full *playback* support is new on certain OSs/apps. 😉

But yeah, too few people know about this.

I have never ever seen any hint of alpha level support inside H265 codec when encoding with either Adobe Media Encoder, Resolve, After Effects, FCPX or Motion.

Is there a current compressor preset that you can link me to so I can see this in action please?

Every time I use h265, the option to export alpha channel data along with the RGB channels, this checkbox is greyed out.

It's there for me for any of the HEVC presets. 🤷🏼‍♂️

I'd post a screenshot, but everything is apparently all screwed up here. Half the links don't work (like the one to this thread) including the one for uploading images. Sorry.

EDIT: AH! as HTML apparently it's fine. 🙄
