I apologise if this is covered simply somewhere but I have searched and read all related topics and cannot find a concise answer.
I wish to use a video with Alpha elements (say title simple text with alpha background). I have tried multiple codec conversions through ffmpeg - to png, prores and others but it’s still just black background. The files are .mov files. Note I have one clip that works and it is ProRes codec.
- Changing track blend to “over” for example doesn’t work
- Applying filters such as Opacity is not effective as it makes the non alpha areas transparent)
I am either not converting into a usable codec or i’m missing something simple?
Thanks in advance…
