Alpha Channel

You can add a clip with transparency information as an alpha channel (data area with transparency information) of another clip. The effect makes the image to look like being masked, and you can overlay the image onto the image to be the background.

(1)

This is the image to be added with the alpha channel. It is called “Fill”.

(2)

This is the image to be added to the “Fill” as the alpha channel. It is called “Key”.

You can apply the clip to be the “Key” like a mask as the alpha channel of “Fill”. Overlay the created clip to an image to be the background to composite the clip.

Note

  • The function is not supported when “Fill” and “Key” have differences in the following items. (The aspect ratio and field order can be checked from the [Information] palette.)

    • Image size

    • Frame rate

    • Aspect ratio

    • Field order (Except for the combinations of top field first/progressive and bottom field first/progressive. The combination of top field first/bottom field first is not supported.)

    • Clip with no duration defined

1) Register clips to be “Fill” or “Key” to the bin.

2) Select 2 clips in the bin.

3) Right-click the 2 clips, and click [Convert] → [Alpha matte].

4) Set the file type, convert format, or “Fill” and “Key” assignation.

[Save as type]

Specify a codec. The available file format differs depending on the specification (HD/SD) and other factors.

[Fill Key(F)]

Specify which image to be “Fill” (or “Key”) from the 2 images.

[Convert format]

Specify which element of the clip selected as “Key” to be applied as the alpha channel.

[Alpha matte]

Select this item when the clip selected as “Key” includes an alpha channel, and the alpha channel is applied as the alpha channel for “Fill”.

[Alpha matte (invert)]

Select this item when the clip selected as “Key” includes an alpha channel, and the alpha channel is inverted and applied to the alpha channel for “Fill”.

[Luminance matte]

Select this item when applying the luminance lever (0% to 100%) of the clip selected as “Key” is applied to the alpha channel for “Fill”. Luminance level 100% is transparency 100%.

[Luminance matte (invert)]

Select this item when applying the luminance lever (0% to 100%) of the clip selected as “Key” is applied to the alpha channel for “Fill”. Luminance level 0% is transparency 100%.

[Repeat last frame]

Check this item to complement by repeating the last frame in “Key” clip (or the alpha channel), when the duration of the “Fill” clip is shorter than that of “Key” clip.

5) Click [Save].

6) Composite the clips by laying them on the timeline.

[Track Matte]

Generate alpha (transparency information) from the clip placed on the timeline as a matte clip, and multiply it by alpha of the clip placed as a source clip. In addition, you can place it overlaying the background image.

1) Place a clip to use as a matte clip on a track.

2) Place a clip to use as a source clip on a track on the matte clip.
