    Export as Cineform on PC or ProRes on Mac.

    Using Hitfilm Express 13 on PC as your guide, this is simple. Just use the "Go Pro Cineform with Alpha" export Preset. I assume Express on a Mac has a preset for Pro Res with Alpha.

    (You could also use the "PNG sequence with Alpha" preset, but that will render a folder full of still images that will need to be imported as an image sequence).

    That's it!

    For reference, you CANNOT render to a transparent background with mp4. Mp4 doesn't support alpha channels. You'll have to use Cineform/ProRes or PNG image sequence.
