hey guys thx for all the replies
i have version 6.5 and when i made my shatter effect, it still had a black background so when it shattered, there was nothing behind, but i faded so it looked like it was shattering into the next scene
as for the opinion about 6.5, this was before i did real editing, when i made the review i wasnt really working on a real amv, just making quick vids and toying around with it. ya premiere crashes everytime i use mp3, thats why i use wav. files
ya thats how ive been using after effects recently, just working on small effects and the other stuff is premiere. that is a very organized way of using after effects, i kinda do it that way but i havent really done any serious editing with it.
aww man that sucks that it only works in premiere pro
well for 6.5 i dont even really use the titler, and as for the real time preview, is there much of difference between that and the 6.0 'Preview From..." screen or RAM? in the VicBond's dvd guide, he says that 6.0 is a lot more stable and in the reviews for 6.5, a lot of 6.0 users say its a lot more unstable than 6.0
and thx for the link for the tranparent background
