Hello there, i wish i could find some helps on here.
I have bought Pop Video 3 in order to export transparent videos, i have made all the tutorials, read all the documentations but it seems that i make an error somewhere or anything else.
So, my wish is to export short videos with a transparent background to use in other software... be able to add the background i want etc... like in the tutorials.
1-So, i use i clone 6 to create a short animation, such as a character speaking... in the preferences, i activate a background or load a green background picture (in order to erase it in pop video)
2-Then, i export the video (i have tried ALL the format, mov, pop video, etc...)
3-In Pop Video, i use chroma key which works perfectly... the video has now, a transparent background.
BUT
4-When i export this video, Pop Video crashes and closed... or, when it succeed, i have a video with still a colored background... 

I really do not understand what's wrong... i have tried the demo after buying it.... but i have still the same problems and the support does not give me answers to resolve the problem.

Please, i would be very grateful if somebody could tell me what's wrong?
(Sorry if my english is not clear sometimes)

Cheers,

Ludovic.

1. import' a green or blue screen video into pop video
2.  go to the edit tab'  choose chroma key this will get rid of the green or blue background make any adjustments needed
3. go to export tab ' leave the format on pop video' set compression settings to max 8" make all adjustment needed
4 click capture display at bottom
5. click export..
choose where to save file then hit ok and it should render it out and thats it..

To import it into iclone find the file 'RIGHT click it and drag it into your project, add it as a plane then you can adjust it how ever you want.

Thats all you have to do if its crashing i cant do anything about that except to say make sure your graphics card drivers are up to date and you dont have a bunch of background processes going on which you can check with task manager.

Hello there, thanks for your help.
I just follow your steps, everything works concerning the part where i use Pop Video.
But when i want to import the Popvideo files exported (with transparent background) into iClone, the video is imported but it stays static, no moves, and there is a black background on it.

Sad

Is pop video rendering the video ??


When you import the video into iclone are you RIGHT clicking it and dragging it into iclone as a plane ??

Ok, my apologies, it is ok now in iClone.
But is there a way to export this video with a transparent background, in order to only have the character to be usable anywhere else ?

 You can export in different codecs / formats it really depends what other programs you are trying to use it with.

Yes, thank you, it works now thanks to your help.
But i still do not understand why i cannot have a mov file with only animated character on a transparent background, to use it anywhere i want, on every backgrounds i want. (in others softwares for example).
Is it possible or am i dreaming? 
Thanks in advance!

I have not tried popvideo with many other programs other then iclone but you should be able to with other codec/ formats.
For more universal transparent videos I normally use hitfilm..
