Alpha channel problem with PSD file Boris FX/Vegas 8
on Feb 14, 2009 at 10:04:47 pm

I am trying to add Boris FX to a PSD title with alpha channel and Boris is not seeing the alpha.
The PSD alpha works fine on the timeline, but not when I add Boris FX to it. I have the alpha on in "preferences" within Boris.

Is there another alpha setting that needs to be toggled on? Thanks.

Hi Bob,

Alpha is not passed to Boris UI when applied as a Filter. You will need to bring the alpha file straight into FX UI. So,

1) apply FX as a Filter to a video clip & then launch Boris FX UI & layer on V2 the alpha file by bringing it straight in Boris FX UI etc

or

2) apply Boris FX as a Filter in Vegas to an Empty Event on V2 & then launch Boris FX UI & bring in the file with alpha in FX UI etc

or

3) apply Boris FX FX as a Generator (instead of applying it as a Filter to an Empty Event on V2) on V2 in Vegas & then launch
Boris FX UI & bring in the alpha file straight in there etc

note: this is a Static Generator with 1 frame duration so you won't be able to animate. If you want to animate then you need to follow steps in 1 or 2.

Hope this helps.

Thank you. I kind of figured that maybe that was the case.
Thanks.

Bob
