It does not have transprency?

I have one idea, you could open the plugin as still image in chromanator, and adjust it there. It should work. But then you have to buy alam and chromy. I don't know how much money you have.

Alright, one idea, and you mentioned, is with Masks.

Now, the masks are while objects that will stay visable UNTIL YOU RENDER, so, dont expect them to work immediately.

Now, masks have transparency, so if your plugin doesnt you can use a mask! Now say you want your plugin to be 60% visable, you put a mask over the plugin, and adjust the mask to 40% transparency thus making the plugin's outcome of 60%. Render, and see. Now, you don't have AlamDV so I don't know if the trial is able to render some sort of watermarked video or not. But it will help if you buy the program first because you can't download the plugins.

Now, you may have a friend who has the program, so then I guess you could.

Hope this helps you, and welcome to FXHome.
