ChromaKey and Aftereffects into flash

Im trying to get some footage that is on a green screen into a SWF with a transparent background.

Have you tried rendering as an image sequence, in a format (TIFF, TARGA, etc) that supports transparency?

Not sure if Flash can import these formats, as I don't use Flash, but it's worth a try.

I did this once for a flash based website. I seem to remember I rendered the keyed footage to a quicktime animation with the alpha channel and then put that in the flash encoder which has an option to use the alpha channel. Something like that. I outputted a FLV that I imported into Flash.
