QuickTime can support this on both platforms using a one bit mask. It does
not currently support areas of "semi-transparency". Things like Audion do
not use QT for this function, they have their own coded support for it. As
far as I know, Rev does not support this function even if using QT.
Currently most developers who need these kind of thing use LiveStage Pro,
Director, or iShell, which all do support this QuickTime implementation.
