I don't have the option for a transparent background. It disappears when the screen finishes loading, and I can't press it.

The transparent background option is only available when exporting to png sequence. The MP4 video format does not support transparent background. GIF does support transparency but on FlipaClip it currently does NOT support it. Please let me know if this answers your question.

Hi folks, here’s my solution for getting animated gifs with transparent background: 


-if you’re on android use app “GifStudio” which has a background chroma key to transparency function

-if you’re on iOS create a black background layer, export video or gif with black background, then watch this:

I agree. I’ve always thought of that being a feature but never listed it here. I have absolutely no clue why. But yes! I really hope this becomes an option. It’d be far easier than doing greenscreen haha. Thanks for listing thisss

You can export a PNG sequence with transparent background. It works well, I do it all the time.

click and hold on the 100% in the layer section. You can move it up or down for a different opacity

Yeah wanted to toggle it on and off to seems strange it’s not just a layer you can change the properties of

If you don't draw a background on a separate layer & export the PNG files you have your animation on a transparent background anyway :)

I transported it as png sequence but all it did was spam my files with separate animation frames. How do I make it animated like a GIF? I am making animated stickers on amino

Once I export the PNG sequence, I am unable to access the zip file that the app saves. I want to add my transparent bg sequence into a timeline so that I can edit further. How can I access the files?
