    Making the Background Transparent?

    iRuss Level 1

      I'm new to After Effects. Coming for Apple Motion. When you make a new project and/or make a new composition, how do you make the background transparent, so when I bring it into my editing program that the background is not visible? The background is black by default. Is this done when you make a new comp, or when you render?

       

      I was trying to render a QT ProRes 422 file that the background would be transparent when brought into an editing program like FCP. I can't see anyway of doing that.
