Hi, I exported a recording with what seemed as Transparent background to use it in after effects.
In after effects I wanted to put my recording on top of a background layer. Yet, the puppet background was black and as to that, I could not have seen the background I wanted.
Is there a way to export with a transparent background so it will work on after effects ?
I know I could have taken the PNG file into Ch program and record with the background I seek. Yet, My laptop cannot record with that background as it is too weak. thats why I had to get everything together on After effets.
You can import the character animator project file into AE, pre-render it and you'll have your transparent BG.
You can do what markd said above (dynamic linking), but if you want to keep with the video export approach (which I use) you must use a media encoder that supports transparency / alpha channels. The default one turns transparencies to solid blAck. This video might help. Exporting Animated GIFs and videos with transparency from Character Animator - YouTube
Note - windows and Mac have different encoders (more on Mac).
