Hi! I just get in touch with all the great software of Fxhome.

Short introduction: I want to create Avatars for my new Website like on
I guess, they make it with bluebox, color keying and exporting to flash.
I think the most difficult is the transparancy...

It must be a possibility to make transparent bachgrounds in adobe flash but I saw it only with texts and animated graphics, not with imported videos.

I hope you can help me in this question!!!

Yes, you can export video from CompositeLab with transparent backgrounds. You will need to purchase and register the software though, as the demo renders with a watermark.

The best method I've found is to key the footage, and then use the folowing render settings:

Render to Quicktime
Make sure "Retain Alpha channel" is checked.
Then, in the quicktime options box after you hit render, select

Quicktime Animation
Color depth: Millions+

I'm not at all familiar with Flash, but I assume it can import Quicktime files.
