You could to export to "flv with alpha".
You can export to anything else as well ...as long as it has an "alpha" channel.
Depends on how you are building the website.
Are there any settings that I need to change when I do the ultrakey? I litterally dropped it on the video, changed the key color using the dropper......it changes the background to black on the video. I've attached a screen shot. If I play the video, I see the person walking in, etc but until I export it to an FLV and then put it on a page with a transparent layer, I'm not sure what I've got.
Is it ready to export to flv. I see the option for "Encode Alpha Channel". Appreciate it.
Thanks for helping a newbie.
You should always test your key when you apply it.
eg place a BG on a layer below it like white or grey or even color bars. Better still...the BG that it will end up on. Dont use Black but do test it on Balck at some time.
The different BGs show up different problems that keys can produce.
You are almost certain to need to tweak it a bit before you export it.
You've answered my question and I will certainly be giving you credit.
If I can, one final question, to complete the thread for others help as well....
I was able to export it and I see what you mean about putting a background in. There was a little cloud in the upper left that remained that I needed to clear up.
As for my follow up plan, it was to import it into Flash CS5 and create a swf. Of course, it mentions that audio will most certainly be off, which it was....is there a way to get around it. My idea was to take the swf object and put it on a transparent layer over the site.
You should be able to export the audio with the video into the Flash file. ( I know that because I have done it)
Hard to know what you are doing wrong without seeing your settings.
Thanks. I think I was confusing in what I asked. It's the import to flash that is messing up the audio. The export from Premeire is fine.
No problem though, I'll figure it out or open a new thread. Thanks!
I've never dug deeply into Flash... worked with it for a class way back in CS3. That said, I never could get audio to work correctly in Flash--probably just missing something because I know it's doable.
Have you thought about using Encore to create everything and export as Flash for the web from there? Not sure if that would fit your needs, but figured I'd throw it out there...
