how to play & display a .mov on my UI (presentation) with transparency

Apr 13 2011 | 8:20 pm

hi friends,

finishing a big project, I’m stuck with one thing at the moment:
I have a little animation .mov (H264) of an object moving on a black background.

I’d need to play & display it over my fpic background in presentation mode (= the UI) and the black of the movie should show what it is behind (the fpic)

how could I do that?
I guess jit.pwindow "cannot be transparent" …?!

any tips would be appreciate

give [imovie] a try. I seem to recall that transparency works with it.

A question… Does the movie window move on top of your UI? If it doesn’t move, then you could take a screen shot of your UI and then crop out the part that the movie window sits over. Then chromakey your video over this image to make a composite which is then played over the UI making it appear to be transparent.
