I painted frames in Silhouette and when I return to After Effects or Final Cut Pro, why do I see a black frame?

When you finish painting and return to After Effects or Final Cut Pro, your screen will be black if you haven't drawn any shapes. This is because Silhouette, by default, creates a black Alpha channel if no shapes are drawn. If you want to see your painted frames, the Alpha channel needs to be filled. This can be done either in the After Effects Effect Control window or the Final Cut Pro Filters window, where there is an Alpha parameter. Set it to the Paint setting and you will see your painted image.
