I wanted to test a curtain effect from pond 5 and I downloaded the preview. I can't seem to get anything behind the curtain. I've tried to use track mattes, and unmult effect, and I have no idea how to get something to appear when the curtain opens. Would anyone have a suggestion for what maybe I'm doing wrong?

Here is the footage I was grabbing

Thank you

The preview file probably doesn't have the alpha channel mentioned in the description.

That footage comes in two sections: the curtain animation and its animated matte. You use the second part as the luma matte for the first part. Easy as pie.
