rendering changing background...
is there a way to change the rendered background ? without putting a large plane behind it :p
cause its allways bitch black and for composing its sometimes very very unusable (shadows or simply black objekts..)
or can i render it out on other way to geht the alpha in the scene for adobe after effekts...

(sorry for my bad english...)

The background has no matte, so it is transparent when compositing. Iff, tiff, and targa's have the alpha channel. Bmp and jpeg do not. The other formats I do not use.
