I have been successful in using PNG images with a transparent background in Camtastia Studio 7, but not videos?

Is there any support for importing a video with transparent background?
If so, what type of video? What is the trick to making one work?

Camtasia Studio 8 was just released and we do allow some types of video with transparency on to the timeline now. Here is an example of a MOV with transparency over top of a screen recording:

This is made possible by our new rendering engine and the ability to have multiple video tracks.

Give it a shot and let me know how it goes! :)
