    Ability to export media with Alpha channel in prores 4:4:4:4?

    I have a production that is mulling using Adobe over Avid the decision seems to boil down to whether Avid can export media from the editor with alpha channel in a pro res 4.4.4.4. Is it possible to export a clip with a transparent BG from avid?

    I just hire the equipment so my Avid knowledge is limited but I've spoken to several editors and none seem to know the answer. 

    If the answer is yes would it be possible to advise how please.

    Avid can NOT export any media with an Alpha automatically.

    There are some convoluted hacks that you can use, but I would not advise them.
