Can someone please remind me about this, i did scan the documentation headings but didn't know where to start reading for this info.
I need to be able to record to a codec with alpha channel included — ProRes 4444 ideally. Use case is for rendering out titles and bottom third animations and stuff like that. I can do it in QC and mimoLive today but I'd love to be able compile an app and have video editor with a Mac be able to use the custom effect bottom thirds, titles, stuff like that I generate for events and brands, with text field inputs so they can roll their own adjusting all the timing and other effects inputs to get it just right.
Not having an alpha channel means I need to pre-multiply alpha values per pixel and it's not as easy to make the rendered video work after that. Either that or render two movies, the "fill" image with no transparency and the "key" image (alpha rendered as greyscale to be used in the client NLE software)
This is sounding like a FR i guess isn't it?
