Flash 8 with alpha video codec functions like a pixel filter, which is to eliminate the pixels or make them transparent or translucent! Video virtually, is a series of framed images put together, one after another, to simulate motion and interactivity, and is often transmitted by number of frames. If we take video as something static, then it can be interpreted as sets of images. Every image is composed with pixels, which are considered either completely transparent or not transparent at all, with no gradations of opacity. If you use alpha, all non-transparent pixels would still reveal the underlying content. However, if your original video is with alpha, with Flash 8 with alpha video codec, Flash Video MX Pro will keep the original transparency of your video for video composing later.
Then what Flash 8 with alpha is supposed to do for you?
If you are trying to compose or say, mix two videos into one, each of which includes its own content yet revealing both of the two, you are supposed to use Flash 8 with alpha video codec. If you are trying to put an image or a text on your video, you are to paste the image and text to the video if the image is not transparent and one part of the video is covered! How to realize an overlay without covering? Then you are supposed to use chromo-key filter!
With this function, it is easy to add an overlay to brand your video movie with a text or image watermark, wherever you can place it on the video: top-left, center, bottom-right, top right, etc.
