I have been trying to figure this out all day and I can't. Hopefully you talented people can help. Below are screen shots of my project and export. I am trying to export this animation where the "Everyday Health" and "In partnership with American Health Journal" fly together on screen. The animation looks great in AE but when I render it out and view it as a QT all I see are the "In partnership with American Health Journal" and the seeds logo. Everything else is black.
I tried turning on and off transparency and it does nothing for the export. Any suggestions?

You apparently rendered an animation with an alpha channel, then opened it in.... Quicktime, it appears.
Quicktime's viewer can't display alpha channels. It will show a solid background.
So what color IS transparency?
I predict that when you look at it in the next application to use the animation, things will be fine. If you don't have that particular application, import the animation back into AE for a quick double-check.
