I am making an animation in Photoshop that I am then going to use in Sony Vegas. My animation has a transparent background and I am wondering if there's any way to render my animation from Photoshop that will allow me to place it on top of another one inside Vegas and maintain its transparency.

  • I suggest rendering it as PNG sequences. That way you keep Transparency and dont loose anything because of compression etc. – SitiSchu Jun 27 '17 at 9:43
  • File > Export > Render Video
  • Change the format to Quicktime (might be AVI if on Windows)
  • In the Alpha Channel, select Straight - Unmatted
  • Render

enter image description here

  • I just tried doing this... and it still renders with a black background. – Amy Stanec Aug 5 '18 at 19:58

    @AmyStanec did you open the exported file in a video editing program? You won't see transparency in a regular video player. – Luciano Aug 6 '18 at 15:27
