  • Alpha Channel in a nested Timeline?

    Hope someone can answer for me...

    I have a timeline with an animated lower third which is partially translucent as well as alpha chanelled to fit over video and I use titlemotion pro for text. I have the text wipe on and off etc etc...

    I want to nest that timeline into another timeline but when i do the alpha channel dissapears and the background is black.

    Obviously inside the timeline the lower third works fine but as soon as I nest I lose the alpha channel ability.

    Does anyone know a setting that can be changed anywhere to allow me to nest the timeline and maintain the alpha channel?

    _thanks in advance.

    There is currently no alpha support like this in v4.x of edius.

      Put a horrid color like magenta on the bottom of the sequence. Then you can chroma-key it in the other sequence.

          I'll give that a try and see.. Thanks.. atm I think maybe my best bet is copy and paste the timeline into the other timeline... but mayeb the key would work.. Thanks
