Changing a Final Cut Pro Clips Alpha Channel

Occasionally, you will have to manually change the Alpha-Channel of a clip due to a misintepretation of an Alpha-Channel by FCP upon import of a file. For example, what should be transparent in a clip may be translated as black.

Changing an Imported Clip's Alpha-Channel

1 Within the Browser Window, select a clip then go to Edit > Item Properties >Format.

2 Either control click, if you have a one button mouse, or right click, with a two button mouse, the Alpha row in the menu. Don't click on the word Alpha, but somewhere along further in the row.

3 Choose an Alpha-Channel type from the menu. You can also control click or right click the Reverse Alpha row to reverse the alpha channel. You may have to try one or two settings before you find the right one, but that's part of editing.....Problem Solving!
