What's the fastest way to import footage with an Alpha Channel ?

Hi there,

I was doing some graphics work for a corporate video in after effects, and saw that the edit had a lot of greenscreen talking heads, so I offered to key them using keylight in AE.

Keylight did a magnificent job of this and I exported to animation codec,millions+ with straight alpha.

Now the client is complaining that FCP still needs to render these shots for hours when he switches his keyed footage for my quicktime ?

Their system is a Quad G5, Blackmagic.

What am I doing wrong ?
Would it have been faster to have output a seperate RGB and a B&W alpha pass in Blackmagic codec and let them do a luma matte key in FCP ?
