PNG imgs getting automatic black background when adding effects


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


Relative newcomer here so hopefully I'm just missing something obvious, but...

I'm trying to create three separate basic two-frame animations on different video layers. Problem is, when I insert the image, it goes full screen, so I'm forced to add the effect of changing it's size. (side question, is there a way to change image sizes without making keyframes?)


The first layer went fine, but when I created the second video layer and edited the PNG image, an automatic black background is applied that I can't get rid of. Is there a way to remove that background, or just an easier way to resize images?

An image/video can be positioned, rotated, scaled, etc. from within the effects window, simply by dragging its "handles." No need to key frame.


Tested several layers of png stills keyed over a video, then effected in multiple ways. No black was seen. Here's how a single layer looked.


Are you certain that the png had a transparent background?
