    Have you keyed out the BG plate using either greenscreen or masking?

    I think you could also export the whole clip (including the black background) to premiere, put it on top of the other video layers and choose 'Add' as the transfer mode.

    Certainly would work and work better in CS4 than CS3 for sure with Premiere new blend modes.

    Alernatively just export the clip out of after Effects in a format that support alpha channel and remember to tick the box to preserve transparency. Easy.

    Or, my last thought, why not just do all the compisiting in AE rather than in PPro. It's a much better app for it.

    If you truly do have a transparent background in your composition you can export as Uncompressed AVI and make sure you select retain Alpha and Millions of Colors.

    If nothing else you can key out the background once you get the file back to Premiere.
