    Importing After Effects Graphic w/ Alpha Channel

    I have some lower 3rd graphics that I created in After Effects and rendered with an alpha channel. I know the alpha channel works because it works in Premiere Pro. However when I try to use them in Media Composer, I get the lower 3rd on a black slate instead of a see through alpha channel. I can't be the only person to have this problem however I can't find a fix or workaround online anywhere.

     

    Anyone know how to get graphics with an alpha channel to work in MC?? Any help is greatly appreciated.

     

    Thanks
    Greg

    Re: Importing After Effects Graphic w/ Alpha Channel

    Have you checked your avid import settings for invert or do not invert alpha? Settings-Import-Alpha Channel.

    I believe if you rendered in AE to the avid codec, you do not invert, if you rendered to animation or something else, you may need to invert the alpha.

    The DNXHD-Codec with Alpha didn`t work for me. Now i`m rendering the files with Animation-Codec (RGB+Alpha). Try to import either with inverted alpha or "normal"
