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.
I don’t think you’d have a big issues with compound clips for your graphics. That may have been more prevalent an issue with earlier iterations of FCPX. I’d try to stay as native to my original graphics if I could help it.
