Camtaisa 9: Export with transparent using Alpha channel

Is there a way to export a video with a transparent background? I know how to remove a color from a video, but I don't want the background to be any color after removing the chroma-color from my imported video. Just the video which I can overlay on anything and have that thing show through. I was looking for an ALpha channel setting, but don't see one.

Unfortunately, not that I've ever seen or have been aware of!

Seems a basic video editing option in other tools. Step up the game in version 10!

I was just watching one of Gord Isman's videos that deals with ideas similar to yours, so perhaps there's something in it that will be helpful. Here's the link:

Add a green chroma background shape behind the animation in Camtasia. Then key out the file in the program you open.

just saying that alpha channel export would be great. Greenscreen is fine (sort of) but export with alpha channel possible would be an awesome addition.
