Gap BFX bg alpha

Does anyone else have a need for this? My problem is I have a bg plate with a gap bfx title on top. It would be great if I replaced the bg on the timeline and the alpha would get piped into the gap bfx.

At the moment I have to replace the render on the timeline then the alpha in the gap bfx. I’ve kept them separate because the bg clip will be graded and replaced.

If your plate is a multichannel clip with an alpha, you should be able to access that alpha from the blue tab on the Back Clip proxy. When you swap out the plate with another, so long as it has an embedded alpha, the matte should swap also.

Bingo. Tim Farrell wins! Thank you.
