Hi guys! I've been trying to export a sequence of a lower third I designed in Premiere Pro. It consists of a white semi-transparent matte and a client logo. When I export as QT file > Animation > Maximum Depth and 8bpc + Alpha, it exports like it should, sort of...

 

When I import the file to test it out in Premiere, it has retained the transparency and the effects I added to the sequence (edge feather and I animated opacity).

 

If I open the file in Quicktime or VLC, it loses those effects. What am I doing wrong?

 

See my example here: https://www.loom.com/share/3fc858ed9874439cbf3bd10d5db786ce

I don't think the quicktime player or vlc are going to show the transparency, but if you composite your quicktime in premiere on top of a new background video, you should see what you're looking for.   You might do better using the prores4444 codec which supports an alpha channel with much lower system overhead...

"I always use K-LITE codec pack"

NO.

Don't ever install that codec pack in a computer with Premiere Pro.  You are more likely to corrupt the codecs Premiere Pro installed or uses than solve a codec issue.
