View Full Version : Video with alpha channel

Hello all,

Can Lightwave render a videoformat (quicktime, avi etc) WITH alpha channel?
I'm trying to make a little 3D clip wich I want too use in Flah 8. If I can't render one, what would be the way to make one?

regards, Simon

Render out the files as seperate images either tga or PNG will do including alpha. Then in an editing package combine them and export as quicktime or whatever suits you.

Thanks Pete, Ill give that a try. I use Final Cut Express HD for editing. Are u sure that Quicktime has an alpha channel?

In quicktime, use the Animation codec wit the Millions of Colors+ option selected.
