Adding animation from Daz Studio [ANSWER]

I've created an animation in Daz|Studio. Nothing special, just tinkering with it trying to learn how to make them. When I add the movie in Vlab it removes the black background, but it also makes the animated creature very dim, almost transparent.
How can I correct this, even if the animation I want to add is black, say like a gorilla or somehting?
Instead of a black background, should I use green or blue?

Your best bet is to render the animation with an alpha channel. Then Vlab will automatically detect the alpha channel and remove it. Alternately, you can render onto a blue or green background, but a straight alpha render will give the best results, and is the easiest.

The alpha background you have to be very careful with though. I've made some things with alpha channels and even the shadow areas become transparent. I suggest going with the aforementioned green/bluescreen options.

Thanks for the replies, much appreciated.
Just as I posted this last night I tried the green background and it worked like a champ. Now I just have to figure out how to create the shadows.
