when i export a video with a transparent background in the gopro cineform with alpha preset, when i open the video in vlc it just shows the vlc icon with the audio playing
also happens with avi preset
This may be a VLC issue, as VLC doesn’t care about transparency. Try importing your exported footage back into HitFilm and see if it is correct.
If you see the checkers board background correctly it means that your composition has a transparent background and you can export your video with the alpha channel
@pec123k I removed the irrelevant and suspicious link from your comment. Please don't do that again.
@okazerker As far as I know, VLC (version 3.0.8) doesn't support 12-bit RGB Cineform. They do support YUV 10-bit however.
What are you trying to do? I would only use 12-bit RGB with alpha to import into a video editor or compositor. If you are trying to create a final video for delivery, 10-bit Cineform should be more than enough (one could argue that AVC would be more relevant for that use case).
basicly when i open the exported video file (either the .avi or the .mov (since i exported it once with the gopro cineform with alpha preset and once in the avi preset), the files opens but i see a static vlc icon and black background, but do hear the sound, like if there was only audio in the file(screenshot link: https://prntscr.com/r1w0w4)
also i just imported the exported files into hitfilm and it works so yeah may be vlc issue
but last time i exported into a .avi file it worked in vlc
oh it worked with the uncompressed avi preset, but not with the "low quality AVI" "medium quality AVI" and "high quality AVI" presets i made (i just changed the "quality" setting in the presets and used the "GoPro CineForm" codec)
