View Full Version : render transparent background

05-24-2004, 11:00 AM
I need to render something that looks like the lightwave render but has a transparent backgroup. The swift 3d plugin does not give me the effects I need and is a larger file then a compressed avi when using flash's compression. This is something that is going on the web and needs to be a top layer that has a transparent background.

If you render out to any format that supports an alpha channel (such as Animation at a million+ or TGA 32bit) you should be able to premultiply the background out of it, or go into photoshop and pull out the alpha mask and delete the background. I'm sure there are other ways but the key is to get that alpha channel in there. Please post an image of what you're up against.
