What versions of After Effects and Flash are you using?
When you export to FLV, use the On2 VP6 codec and be sure to check the Encode Alpha Channel option in the Video tab of the export settings dialog box.
Thanks for the responce.
Im using CS4 for both Flash and After Effects.
I have also tried wht you suggested and it wont work for me when i bring it into flash.
Is it possible to bring it from After Effects into Flash or am I wasting my time?

Not many Quicktime codecs actually support alpha even though you can choose it. Which did you use?
Of the more popular, Animation is the one I use most often. I should be using ProRes 4444 for ease of integration into Apple's Motion and Final C ut apps but I keep forgetting it's available.

...and here's another candidate: PNG the codec, not the image sequence. It also supports Alpha Channels, and unless you're making animated lower-thirds, the file sizes are generally smaller than Animation files.
Animation uses run length encoding, so in situations with large expanses of transparency as in lower-thirds, the file sizes can be downright compact.
