I saw a pod cast with richard harrington about making name straps in photoshop with an alpha channel. Ive doen this a few times and am plased with the result but now I want to make an animated video clip that I can import to final cut pro and use as a name strap. is this possible?
Ive tryed exporting just the alpha channel and Ive tryed rgb + alpha but cannont get fcp to see it like it dose witht he photoshop files.
is there any tutorials out there? can any one help.
thnaks in advance for any help or advice
If you use a codec that supports alpha (only a few do) FCP sill see it. You may need top change how FCP interprets the alpha, that flag sometimes gets lost. Animation and ProRes4444 carry the alpha.
Ive just seen your reply and will try it out later today!. I think thats it! I was trying to do it with proress 422!
thnaks again for your help
