How To Export a Transparent Movie from After Effects

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

This tutorial is based on need.  I needed this info earlier today, and I had to sort through about a half dozen sites to find all of this information.  The scenario is as follows:  I was tasked with creating an animated movie that has a layer of transparency.  My client did not know what color they were going to use as their background for the site, but they wanted an animated movie to transition into showing their logo.  Knowing this was my task I then posed two questions; How do I get a movie to render with an alpha layer in After Effects?  Also, can that transparent movie be put into Flash and published in Flash all the while maintaining the transparency?
