We confine a microparticle in a hybrid potential created by a Paul trap and a dual-beam optical trap. We transfer the particle between the Paul trap and the optical trap at different pressures and study the influence of feedback cooling on the transfer process. This technique provides a path for experiments with optically levitated particles in ultra-high vacuum and in potentials with complex structures.
