Hi: I want to export an intro with a transparent background and import it into premiere pro. I've tried alot of combinations when saving the intro ... avi with rgb+alpha and quicktime with different settings (png, animation, etc.)... but everything I try ends up with a black background when imported into premiere pro. I'm using a pc and the latest versions of the software...

any ideas?

many thanks.

No offense intended, but please click the checkerboard under your comp window and verify you have transparency(you don't know how many times I've answered alpha questions when their was no working alpha information).

Take one of your renders and re-import it into AE and see if you have an alpha, if you do, the problem lies with your interpretation settings in Premiere

Good suggestion, I did import it and it looks fine, has the transparent background. I will look for the settings that may be causing that in Premiere pro. Thanks, that allows me to stop chasing my tail :.)

[Lillian Fidler] "but everything I try ends up with a black background when imported into premiere pro"

If it has an alpha and it shows a black background then do you actually have anything on a lower video track so it can show that below it? There are no transparency grids in Premiere.

Just to test this I exported a quick AE video with alpha. It was exported raw. Output Module "Lossless with Alpha" preset. It worked fine giving the appropriate alpha channel.

Now working with raw exports can be cumbersome to say the least, so make sure that whatever format you are encoding your export into can appropriately handle an alpha channel.
