After you hit the render button, make sure to select a format that supports an alpha channel (PNG, TIF, TGA, and a few others). AVIs out of pI don't export with alpha channels at this time.

Once you've picked a format that alphas will work with, the Save Alpha box should be checkable on the Render Settings page.

does that mean I will have to use an image sequence ?? Is there a way to export an .mov with alpha..??
I've tried exporting as animation with millions of colours + but no luck.

Thanks for the info Elvis

right now it has to be an image sequence. But if you really need to have a MOV with alpha, you could always import the Tiff, TGA, or PNG sequence into a program like After Effects or a NLE like Vegas, and then output the quicktime with alpha (Straight, not premultiplied).

That's the solution I use. But usually I just use an image sequence - most programs don;t see it any differently than an MOV or AVI.

If you're using pIllusion SE on OS X, then you can save a Movie with alpha. Just make sure you choose a compressor that supports alpha (such as "animation") and make sure you choose the highest number of colors.
