Movie Transparent Alpha Channel
Jul 19, 2012
OK, let me make sure I have this straight, perhaps the community can enlighten me.
-- If I import a .mov movie that has a clear alpha channel into Storyline it will encode it into an .mp4 and I will loose the alpha channel.
-- If I import a .flv that has a clear alpha channel it will keep it unless an HTML 5 request comes and then Storyline will encode it into a .mp4 and loose the alpha channel.
--If I import a .mp4 with a clear alpha channel Storyline will re-encode it and wipe out my alpha channel.
So, the best approach appears to be to forget about movies with clear alpha channels if you suspect that any of your clients don't like Flash. And only .flv works.
