hello all.

having just updated to osx 10.10 (yosemite) and missed out 10.9 all together i've only now realised that quicktime files using the animation codex does not preview in the finder.

so... what's the best codec (that apple likes) to use for offline graphics that need an alpha channel?

thanks in advance

[anders bundgaard] "what's the best codec (that apple likes) to use for offline graphics that need an alpha channel?"

With "that Apple likes" being the driving factor, ProRes 4444.

There are none. Movies with alpha channels aren't intended for an offline environment.

You could render RGB (fill) and alpha (matte) to separate movie files with whatever codec you like.
