the alpha works in the viewport but NOT in the render
show user profile  art1982
what's the problem?

edit: is there a forum site that answers questions faster? the help manual and google just don't cut it when i search for so long and can't find the answer no matter how i word the search terms, so i end up moving on to another part of the project while i wait. my problem, somewhat updated, is that even the alpha channel shown in the render window does NOT respect the alpha channel of MATERIALS as ACTUAL alpha channels. i need to composite the characters upon photos in after effects so i MUST have the alpha channel include material-based alphas as a part of the silhouettes' "overall alphas".

I think he's saying that he sees the alpha in the Frame Buffer but is having trouble saving it out with the file.

That or he's looking for a hooker and an 8-ball. One of the two.. I can't tell which one actually.

Alpha is just a bit fucked sometimes. e.g.put a lens flare behind an alpha and it'll stop alpha'ing.

Fix: dunno, would have to see your scene.

Sorry for the late reply, was going to answer last night but then thought, fuck it, you can wait.

I'm pretty proud of my correct usage of "you're" though, just saying.
