Directly export an Alpha channel mp4 from C4D


I have been able to export individual images/tifs from C4D with an alpha channel/transparent background by clicking the alpha channel tick box in render settings > save.

I usually then export an mp4 from the render viewer by clicking file > save image as > animation/mp4. This exports an mp4, but unfortunatley there is still a black background thats not transparent.

I know this is not best practice and one is meant to export the images from C4D and then import them in to After Effects and then re-export a video with an alpha channel from AE…but I dont want to use AE, is there any way to DIRECTLY EXPORT AN ALPHA CHANNEL mp4 from C4D?



Hi Patrkk,

No alpha in mp4
