I’ve gone over the forum until I hit the patience threshold and no solution yet.
My goal is to just stabilize a video using tracking and overlay some (scene-generated) text credits. I thought it would be easy to assume the scene would default to an alpha=0 for the background.
Here’s my desired steps:
Layer a scene using alphaover on top of a video layer in the VSE. That simple. Does it work? I’ve tried toggling the OpenGL preview in the VSE, no luck.
I’ve tried making a world-background with alpha = zero, no luck.
I’ve tried a backdrop plane with an alpha=zero material, no luck.
If I use the compositor then basically the VSE approach is unnecessary. But my footage is upside down and the flip checkboxes in the VSE are convenient.
