Have you tried importing the exported clip into Premiere Pro or AE? Just to check if it's really not exporting with alpha? Because if it does then the problem is with FCPX.
What Quicktime Codec are you using for the render? Be specific. "Prores" tells us nothing.
Use the render cue and choose lossless with Alpha from the output module presets. If that does not work you do not have a project with transparent background.
I have done that, and I have made sure that the project i created had a
transparent background by clicking the "toggle transparent" button and
getting the checkered background. Just like all the tutorials tell me to
do. Any other suggestions?

I believe the codec I am using is "animation"
You can try rendering an targa image sequence with alpha. That's also an option if quicktime animation is not working. Just make sure that you select RGB + Alpha then millions of colors+ then 32 bit at the format options. Make sure you render this inside a folder.
Import your file into After Effects and check for an alpha channel. If you do not have one then you have fouled up the lossless preset. Shows a screenshot of your render settings in the output module.

I've watched the tutorials, I've checked the "RGB+Alpha" box, I've made sure to click the "toggle transparent" button etc... followed the tutorials to the T. But when I go to import them into my final cut proX timeline, they have black backgrounds and are not transparent. Anybody else having this problem?
Yes I've checked to make sure "millions of colors" is selected, and under video output options I have "animations" selected.
FCPX may have interpreted your clip improperly. go through the Inspector to make sure the alpha is set to straight.
But how do you know the background is solid and not an alpha? Many FCP newbies do not understand how the FCPX viewer works.If you do not have the alpha view selected or have not brought the alpha clip into a connected stroyline that has another layer beneath it, you see black because that's the default.
