    Brilliant tutorial for something that should be so obviously easy ..of course so many people would want to put their Blend into a video backdrop….and yet so little info exists out there …just use png says seemingly everyone over and over again …!

    It did help. Not sure though how to put it in use. But it is one of those small bits that you feel good to know about it. Well done!!!
