I have been using the video copilot product called action essentials 2 and whenever i import the "pre-keyed footage" it never turns out to be pre-keyed. FOR EXAMPLE: I import a muzzle flash into my composition and the muzzle flash will show up but there will be a black background and thats not suppose to happen.your suppose to be able to just drag it in and only the muzzle flash appears.would greatly appreciate the help!! Thank You
From the Video Copilot Site about Action Escentials:
FORMAT INFORMATION: 2K & 720p
Main Video Format: QuickTime RGB + Alpha, Video Codec: PNG
Video Previews: QuickTime MP4, 480 x 360
So, if you import a clip you should see this in the Proejct Pannel:
You should make sure File Interpretation looks like this:
If neither are true then open up the clip in QuickTime and check the Clip Info. If it does not look like this:
then you are using the Video Previews version, or your footage has been transcoded (copied), or it has been bootleged.
Let us know.
