TGA’s in FCPX, or ProRes 4444 from Compressor.
I’m cutting a series of Virals in FCPX. So far no issues, but my timeline is a mess!
I have to insert various graphic elements into the final edit, which I’m getting as TGA Sequences from After Effects. I’m a little worried about bringing the Sequences into X and creating Compound Clips to overlay over the edit (after reading about CC’s crashing/corrupting peoples projects).
So I ran a couple of sequences through Compressor, and chose the Quicktime ProRes 4444 with Alpha preset (Millions of Colors+ activated in Video Settings), but these exports don’t maintain the Alpha Channel.
Any workarounds? I know the alpha channel is present in the TGA’s as I can see it in the CC’s.
