Transparent/Alpha channel background

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to make the background of my canvas transparent, so that i can draw on it and  screen capture it into a VJ video app and overlay the drawing on top of other video. I think that this is also called alpha channel but not sure. I was doing this previously with a green background and chroma key effect but this seems like a less CPU intensive option. How can i make the background of the canvas transparent in AF?

Hi danklim,


Try this. Go to File>New  When the dialog box opens make sure to tick the box for Transparent Background. The file will then have a transparent background.
