I purchased a .mov video clip with a built in alpha channel form istock. The video is an animated santa over a black background, and the end of the clip is a white solid of the video over black background (I assume this is the alpha channel) how do i use this alpha channel to key out the main video clip.
Thanks Jason

It's easy: use the B&W clip as a luma matte for the color clip. It's all part of the wonderful world of Track Mattes:
