    How do I make the background transparent when making lower thirds?

      Hello all,


      I'm using AE CC 2014.2


      I purchased a few lower thirds, am able to make the changes I need, but when I export, the entire background is black.  So when I import the .mov into Premiere to use just the lower third portion, I have to use the Ultra Key to take out the black.


      This has worked fine until now I'm trying to add effects to the lower third in Premiere using an adjustment layer.  The adjustment layer effect I insert reinstates all of the black background and I can't get rid of it.  How can I remove it in AE from the start?
