easy alpha question..

Hi all,

I'm kinda new to AE, and i've stuck with some problems. I think, there is a very easy solution to it, so i'd like to ask you guys:

1. i've got two .png images with alpha channel (i've imported these to my project)
2. i made my animation
3. i like to render it out to a .tga sequence with an alpha channel, so all my tga files have to have alpha channel

my main problem is that the composition that i've made dont have the background transparency, so the question is how can i see trough my images, without the solid background color?

thank you,

The composition background is transparent. You only need to choose proper settings in the output module dialog (RGB+Alpha).

Thank You very much!

check the alpha on your comp to see if its fully transparent i had the issue

Ok, thank you, Eric!

now i'm watching for this, and that is not a problem any more.. but as i can see, the more i learn, the less i know.. there are a lot of have-to-know things in front of me.. everyone started somewhere, i think.

In case you didn't figure it out already, there is a small red/green/blue icon at the bottom of the composition window that will allow you to view your channels independently.
