Re: Creating Aura transparent backgrounds for use in VT5

>>>So, why are you using an old software like Aura and don't upgrade it ? It came bundled with our NewTek Video Toaster hardware and software. We bought the VT5 only last year. I didn't realize Aura 2.7 was old software I guess. We use it as needed on the Toaster computer and pretty much use Photosh...

Re: Creating Aura transparent backgrounds for use in VT5
