    Default Alpha Channel Help

    Hey, new to this forums and hoping i could get some help!

    Currently working on making a few clips for a website. Making keyed blue screen transparent for flash.

    1: I key the clip

    2: export in .mov "animation millions of colors+"

    3: import to Sorenson Squeeze and applying the On2 Vp6 codec for .flv

    I am getting alot of problems with Sorenson, first of all the flv player does not open the .flv file after i squeeze it.

    I'm pretty sure these are the correct steps, if anyone can help out it would be awesome!

    what software are you keying the clip in?....We use Serious Magic Ultra when you export you have to save it as uncompressed avi....with alpha...we then use macromedia flash 8 to encode using the On2 Vp6 codec and preserving the alpha channel...I assume this is the type of thing you are trying to do

    if it is you have another bit of tweaking to do to your html....no one out there wants to discuss it....its a bit of a "secret" how you do it.....to be honest we had to "buy" the "secret" from a guy online....the market is about to explode for this type of video /flv...you want to be in on it at the start.
