Codecs with Alpha Channel

Hi Marki haven't gotten into traveling masks....so that method works for me...regarding Vanakuru's comment "Animation with alpha is out of the question" -- is this true? there's no codec that allows for animation to retain transparency?
I think vanakaru meant is, its out of question because of its heavy cpu load. Animation does support alpha channel.

Does anyone know if there's a "best" option for Windows?
I would suggest testing the DXV codec on Windows.. It seems that the free version should support alpha.
@Dusx as much I know the alpha is supported ONLY through Resolume the same as better performance.
OK< just did a quicktest and I have a DXV quicktime running in Izzy with alpha.
Just select 'preserve transparency' in the quicktime codec settings during export.
I have a test file that is 10 seconds 30fps 640x480 @ 17.6 mb
Seems to run smooth for me, once I set izzies framerate to match the video.
PS: note Izzy can't be YUV mode
I tried DXV again(after some years+downloaded the latest codec) and indeed it works very well. I have seen reports of better performance that with PNG+. Even the file is smaller that PNG+.When exporting from AE you need to choose RGB+Alpha and then Millions of Color+ along in codec settings to preserve alpha.
Glad its working for you.. seems like the best alpha option right now.
