When I render out a lower third from AE as "Quicktime - RGB+Alpha", add it to Premiere Pro 5.5, render it and save it it plays back just fine. When I close Premiere and reopen the project, it is no longer rendered, anyone have a solution? Didn't have this problem on CS3. Workin' on a MacPro 12cores, 32GB Ram and 4TB of HD Space. Project is 1080p AVCHD Timeline.
Do all of your previews go offline, or only the lower third?
Have you tried rendering your AE comp to a different format than QT-RGB+A,
for example an image sequence with alpha channel?
Is your alpha channel rendered straight or premultiplied, and
Is the alpha channel interpreted correctly in Premiere?
Do the previews go offline if you use Dynamic Link to add the
lower third to your Premiere project and timeline?
Thanks for your reply. It got me to realize that I hadn't tried changing the settings from premultiplied to straight. Turns out Straight fixes my problem! Thanks again for taking the time to help out.
