Compositing: Can't Get the Transparent Background Back

I was compositing an image and set the background to transparent. I then put a picture in the background.
I didn’t like and wanted the transparent background back, but once I removed the picture the background defaults to white, not transparent.

How do I fix it?

Where does it looks white? in a image viewer or in Blender it self?

General Q&A note

Please give full screenshots with any questions. With the relevant panels open.
This can be done by Blender itself, via the ‘Window’ menu bar top left-hand side.
On that menu dropdown is ‘save screenshot’.

Without more to see and go on that sounds like something saved as a jpg not png which can do transparency?

In t he compositing workspace of Blender itself.

I posted a picture.

In the Mix.mix your leading the alpha in as a factor, which works!
Because you mix then the background image (second image input) with a white (first image input).

This Mix.mix node, must be replaced by the Alpha Over node.

OR - Just remove the Mix.mix.

I realize the issue was I was trying to keep the view node and it didn’t occur to me that I could link the two without the view node. Derp.

Thank you :slight_smile:
