The background (blue sky) turns black when I put my avi into Premiere. The avi is rendered with 3ds max. Anyway to fix this? I like the blue sky better .
My guess is that the AVI has an embedded alpha channel. If that's the case, try this:
Right-click the clip in the Project Panel, go to Modify > Interpret Footage, and select the "Ignore Alpha Channel" checkbox in the panel that appears.
If that doesn't work, post back with a screenshot of your file properties, as viewed in Premiere, or an application like GSpot (I'm assuming you're on a PC).
