If you want to maintain the transparency then apparently not. You might be
able to fashion a solution in Rev if you use import or export snapshot to
grab the relevant part of the screen ­ this retains the graphic effect but
gives you an opaque background. Use a white background and convert your
field coordinates to screen coords using globalLoc before you take your
snapshot, then when you've got your snapshot in Rev apply an appropriate ink
effect to it to render the background transparent (blendMultiply might do it
for you).

HTH,
