    What video format can I export from Adobe After Effects (Windows 10) that has an alpha channel that plays nice with Cinema 4D (Windows 10). When I export a ProRes movie with an alpha channel fro9m AE on the Mac, it plays nicely with Cinema 4D but on the PC I cannot find the right format. Any help?

    AE can export ProRes on Windows too.
    C4D on Windows can read ProRes too.

    Are you experiencing a problem with this workflow?

    Yes. The alpha channel is not coming through. Are there other video formats I can use that support an alpha channels in Windows/C4D? I have literally tried them all. I normally use macs so this has got me a lil pissed.

    Maxon techs told me to export image sequences. The software supports importing image sequences. Worked like a charm. Still…would love to now why ProRess444 with alpha quicktime movies aren’t working for me.
