This question already has an answer here:
I have searched but not found an answer that exactly answers or works.
I have a rotating rendered head animation that I want to export with a transparent background so I can import into final cut pro x and lay over video footage or still imagery. I have tried saving as a blender render as quicktime .mov with alpha as transparent and as RGBA but doesnt work, a black BG. I have also tried as a cycles render but still black BG. Is there any particular file format that is better for this? H.264, MPEG, .mov? or something I am missing? thanks
