Does anyone know how a background in After Effects Transparent can get?
Render in a codec supporting Alpha Channels you must, Yoda!
Make a Quicktime movie. Use the AE Render Queue. Don't export. When you add the comp to the Render Queue, open the Output Module settings.
Select a quicktime movie. Choose either Quicktime's PNG or Animation codecs. Set either one to Millions of Colors +, RGB+Alpha, and set it to Straight (i.e. NOT Premultiplied). Then choose a destination folder, save the project and hit the Render button.
An alpha channeled quicktime you will make.
It is thanks to you I did it!
Super thanks again!
Hi Dave i used ur settings but still i am getting black background when i open in quick time
I attribute it to one of two different things:
1) A recent installation of the newest AE version,which is causing problems
2) User error
One is easy to fix, the other requires detailed information about your system
of course you will get black background in Quicktime because Quicktime is a Video player that does not show the Alpha. how would you show transparency? in Ae you can show transparency by setting the background to transparency grid
but that does not exist in Quicktime player. import your rendered footage to Ae and see if you have transparency by looking at the settings in the project window
and watching the footage on top of transparency grid
