Is there a way to get a alpha channel of the foreground image? It would help with drop shadows and working in photoshop. for example, i shot two people separately on green. i took the one guy used him as foreground and added him to a background. the fx home photo key did a good job of eliminating green in the skin and clothing. I exported as a jpeg (flattened no layers) and used that file for another photo key job. second guy (foreground)

It would be a great feature.
