Sorry, but I have not been able to find an option for exporting image sequences with Alpha channel in Compressor either. I submitted a bug report about this a few months ago.
Why do you need to use Compressor? If it is for deinterlacing or resizing, you could export from FCP using Compressor, and choose to export a QuickTime movie using the Animation codec at 100%. After that, you can export your Animation file to a PNG image sequence using QuickTime Pro.
It is the only workaround I can think of at the moment.
I would recommend submitting a bug report: http://www.apple.com/feedback/compressor.html
I have over 200 clips keyed within Final Cut Pro and need to export for the end user as millions+ .PNG files! I think its utterly crazy that Compressor supports TGA files and TIFF's within its Image Sequence settings but NO other formats, where as via Quicktime Pro supports many others! I have to complete and export each clip manually at the moment, its around 30-45 minutes per clip but I have to pay attention to the alpha and the key exports!
Get it together Apple!
(and if anyone has any solution it would be amazing!)
