Alpha from After Effects to Avid

aftereffectsid.jpg

If you are trying to save from your After Effects and import into Avid and you have an Alpha channel then there are a few things you need to be aware of. First of all any DV setting will not preserve your alpha channel. Even if you save with the millions+ colors your QuickTime or other movie will not have an alpha. Also any Avid codec will not preserve alpha channels. I have found only one sure fire way to save my After Effects projects and still have alpha channels in my Avid. I save to QuickTime animation. This is the simplest way to get from After Effects to Avid without having to do an alpha matte in Avid of some other extra task. Always make sure that you select millions of colors+ with animation and your alpha channel will be preserved.
