Convert to a format that supports transparency with an application that supports transparency.
What converter did you use and what were the settings?
Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate
So what setting/format am I looking for because I don't see any option that suggest transparency will be intact?
Ya, but that's exporting from Adobe Premiere. That's not my problem cause I'm able to export transparency properly there. I'm having issues keeping transparency after using a video converter.
Wait a minute. Don't use some video converter. It's pretty clear you don't know how this drill works.
Add your comp to the AE render Queue. Keep the Render settings at Best Quality. You now have to modify the Output Module settings:
- Quicktime Movie
- PNG or Animation codecs
- Millions of Colors +
- Straight (i.e. NOT Premultiplied)
In order to HAVE an alpha channel, you have to render to a codec that will SUPPORT an alpha channel. And you have to put up with the big file sizes. Sorry 'bout that, bud.
