I'm wondering if anyone can help me with my workflow in making a transparent FLV for use in Flash.
Basically I have a 3D rendered animation that i've exported, and want to import it back into Flash for the best filesize possible. My problem is, the way i'm doing it is not retaining the alpha channel on the animation, thus making it have a white background.
Essentially, here's my workflow:
My problem is, at step 2, when exporting the sequence from Flash to AVI I lose the alpha layer.
Now i'm open to suggestions and other programs that could potentially work around this issue. I think If I could get a program that could stitch my PNG Sequence together and export it as a AVI (or FLV), retaining it's alpha channel, i'd be golden.
My biggest issue here though, is I do not have local administrator access on my machine, so it will need to be a program that doesn't install to the registery / and or is portable and free.
I have the adobe eLearning Suite, so unfortunately I do not have access to Premiere or After Effects, which I would normally use to force an alpha channel.
I should probably also add that I cannot export as a mov, as I do not have quicktime installed, and cannot install it due to aforementioned lack of install rights.
This would be so much easier if I just had some form of control over my own work computer... ugh. Hooray for beaurocracy!
