Learning how to export videos onto a transparent background in After Effects is an easy-to-learn technique, that allows motion graphics artists to overlay animated titles, lower thirds, and other graphics onto their videos.
- Once you are happy with your animated graphic and are ready to export, go to File -> Export -> Add to Render Queue
- Before clicking that Render button, open up the Output Module Settings.
- Under Video Output, set your Channels to RGB + Alpha and press OK.
- Once you’re happy with your Output file name, click Render.
That’s it! You have now exported your animated graphic onto a transparent background.
