" alpha channel (transparency) "

I was wondering if the "alpha channel (transparency)" would work from particleillusion? It says it can make a transparent layer, so it would be nice to make real fast particle frames and load them up.

Anyone know more on this?

Thanks for any help, sorry I am noob. :(

Since particleIllusion is a standalone application, you can use it with any video editing or compositing software. Bring your movies or image sequences into particleIllusion, add the particle effects you want, then save the output movie or image sequence. You can also save just the particles with an alpha channel (transparency) so the rendered output can be loaded back into your compositing software.

just depends what codec you use when you export from PI.

PNG codec and Animation+ codec both work and keep the alpha channel
