No, the choices of VP6e vs. VP6s shouldn't affect transparency.

Kevin wrote me separately, and included this code:
Code:
<param name="movie" value="FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf" />
        <param name="quality" value="high">
        <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
        <param name="scale" value="noscale">
        <param name="salign" value="lt">
        <param name="FlashVars" value="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_1&streamName=FLV/CopyofR1rob&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=false" />
        <param name="swfversion" value="8,0,0,0">
The above code is incomplete. Try this:
Code:
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=10,0,0,0" width="320" height="240" id="fcpgreen">
      <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
      <param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />
      <param name="movie" value="myfile.swf" />
	  <param name="loop" value="false" />
	  <param name="quality" value="high" />
	  <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
	  <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />	
      <embed src="myfile.swf" loop="false" quality="high" wmode="transparent" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="320" height="240" name="fcpgreen" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer">
      </embed>
</object>
As referenced in some other thread, the embedded player needs to be floated in a div that is styled with absolute position. If your coder can figure things out from the my above sample, that's great. I'm concerned, though, that the sample he/she supplied was so incomplete; suggesting he/she is unfamiliar with flash video in html. The first flash video project one undertakes should not be one involving transparency! More education than I can provide online might be needed. There are http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_1_11?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=flash+video&x=0&y=0&sprefix=flash+video, and complete classes as well.

Seth thanks for your help. The VP6e vs. VP6s was actually the problem. I changed the setting and it now works perefctly. Thanks again for you input.

Kevin, that's great you got it working. I'm surprised it came down to VP6s vs. VP6e! What are the pixel dimensions of your final video? I'd like to know a little bit more about your experience, so I can share better info.

Seth,

I'm not sure what pixel dimensions that Sorenson applied, but I can tell you that the source footage was shot in HD with my Canon XHA1 (30P). The file that I imported into vegas was a 1920x1080. The rendered file was a 720x480 that I imported into Sorenson. I am glad that you told me about the VP6 codec. That got me off to a good start.
