Camtaisa 9: Export with transparent using Alpha channel

  • Updated 2 weeks ago
Is there a way to export a video with a transparent background? I know how to remove a color from a video, but I don't want the background to be any color after removing the chroma-color from my imported video. Just the video which I can overlay on anything and have that thing show through. I was looking for an ALpha channel setting, but don't see one.

Seems a basic video editing option in other tools. Step up the game in version 10!

I was just watching one of Gord Isman's videos that deals with ideas similar to yours, so perhaps there's something in it that will be helpful. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpSqaQHPvBg&feature=youtu.be&utm_source=ActiveCampaign&u...

Add a green chroma background shape behind the animation in Camtasia. Then key out the file in the program you open.

just saying that alpha channel export would be great. Greenscreen is fine (sort of) but export with alpha channel possible would be an awesome addition.

Thanks for asking this question as it answers whether I wanted to buy Camtasia 9. Needing this aspect as I am making transitions for use in OBS I need the ability to chroma key out a color and then export the video with the alpha channel in tact.

Guess I'll look for something else.
