While the new update is rich with new goodies- I am having some issues doing some things.  My main concern is the inability to export alpha channels in the 10.0.6 updated version of FCPX.


I followed the following steps, same as before the update.

  1. I used the Keying effect to remove the greenscreen and did some cleanup using the "sample color" refining tool.
  2. I cropped and resized the clip so that the actor is the correct size for my clip.
  3. Now it looks great in FCPX, except that I now need to put that footage into Motion 5 and do some motion tracking and match move.
  4. I export the keyed clip as Apple Pro Res 4444
  5. Now when I import that file into Motion 5 everything that is supposed to be transparant is black! 


Is there an additional setting in the new version that I need to fix in order to export alphas?  Is there a new way to do it?


I am operating Mountain Lion, OSX Version 10.8.2 with a 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor. 


Thank you so much!  This is a key element in almost all the projects I do and now I am stuck!
