Apple Final Cut Pro: Compositing using Alpha mattes in Final Cut Pro

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Effects

A video tutorial putting together a 4th of July fireworks display using clips with alpha channels.

You may want to refer to “Image Sequences in Final Cut Pro” by David Nagel as an alternative way to import and use image sequences.
