I'm a beginner. I created some PNG images with no backgrounds. I combined them with transitions to make a video overlay to place over my YouTube videos with LIKE SHARE COMMENT SUBSCRIBE. After rendering the video it loses transparency and dispalys with a black background. Any suggestions on how I can rectify this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you want movie files with transparency you will have to export to a format that supports alpha channel.
mp4 is not one of them.
You need to use either Cineform or Prores or Quicktime animation.
Quicktime is a good choice. Like so:
It worked. Thank you so much!
Also make sure to select a bit depth + alpha in your export settings. The alpha channel is not always automatically included.
