Prototyping with transparent videos

Whatever I try, I can’t seem to work with .mov or .webm videos with transparent background on Figma. Whenever I upload them, I get a black background. Am I doing something wrong? Or is there a workaround for this?


Did you figure out a solution for this? I’ve got the same issue

Nope. I did a workaround, put the website background in the video. Not ideal since every time you change the website, you should edit the video too, but it helps with visualizing.

Seems to be a bug, as I imported a .webm video with a transparent background, and when running the prototype, it appeared perfectly without the background. But then after repositioning, and resizing, when opening the prototype again the black background appeared. And even running Ctrl+Z, for the previous position and size, the prototype continued to show the black background.

Did anyone find a solution for this?? it’s soooo annoying…


sera el que problema persiste?

Also seeing this issue - webm with transparency is very buggy. Shows the first time and never again after that in prototyping mode - black background.

Please fix!
