I thought it would be good to continue on this past post since it seemed relative. If there's a forum admin that can split this thread I can send a request.
Anyway. I already have tried adding in a blank color layer like you mentioned and applying a green screen affect. I still end up with the black background. I'm trying to export the video in a .webm format. This is so I can use the video as what's called a stinger transition in live video streaming. I had managed to do this with lightworks before. I was hoping to use videopad since it's more user friendly and this isn't the primary focus of the broadcast.
