Ok…. looking for someone with a bit more experience than me at using AE.

I am wondering how I can use a separate Quicktime file as the Alpha channel in conjunction with the another Quicktime video?

I have tried applying various Effects to the source movie and selecting the alpha channel movie?! Am I missing something?

Thanks! :)

Mocarg already pointed out the normal way to do it.

If you would prefer to use an effect on the layer, then the Channel -> Set Matte effect is the way to go, although this really only makes sense if you’re applying the same matte to a lot of different layers (it just saves on a few layers!)
