In Photoshop, I have prepared a scene to be animated in FCPX. I just selected a part of the clouds and copied into a separate layer, with 10px feather to avoid rough edges. However, when I import the same PSD into FCPX, the feather becomes a black halo. Anyone know how to fix this? See examples below:

As Final Cut Pro is not made by Adobe, it does not have the same exact processing engine for dealing with the effects in a PSD. This appears to be an artifact of the difference in processing between the systems.
To work around this, I would recommend exporting the components as TGA or some similar file format that has alpha support. Simple alpha blending is far more likely to blend in a predictable manner between applications.
