    Newbie question: Transparent background turns black after render

    maple2009 Level 1

      Hi, there

       

      I'm a new user of After Effect CS4. I searched the forum for the answer to my question, but couldn't find it. Maybe my question is too basic. Any help from you is appreciated.

       

      I have a composition, shot against green screen. I used keylight 1.2 to remove the background, which is now transparent. I rendered the composition to FLV, and also "Videos for Windows" (with RGB and Multi color + option). But neither one has the transparent background after being rendered. The background turns black.

       

      Any ideas?

       

      Thanks again!
