What I'm trying to do is make a small city in Blender to put into the distance in my video. I'm just going to make like 3 tall buildings and in my video i want them to appear to be in the distance, behind some trees in my yard. I'm a newbie to both programs, but once I make the city and save it, what do i need to do to use it in FXhome VisionLab and mask it in behind the trees? This will only be for about a 10 - 20 second scene since it is just a test. Detailed help is really appreciated. Thank you very much!

You need to render the picture of the city against an alpha channel. This will ensure that everything but the city itself is transparent. To do this, go in your render settings and change "RGB" to "RGBA." The "A" meaning "alpha." razz



Good luck with your project! razz
