That is not supported (feel free to vote for the feature request! I would love this one myself). Instead there are two common options.

- You can import a scene from Ch into After Effects using a feature called "dynamic linking". You can then superimpose that ch scene over your other video assets etc.

- You can export a video using 'export with alpha channel' (transparency). You can then load that video clip into after effects of prem pro etc to layer the video appropriately in front/behind other layers in ae.

 

I find the first approach can be sluggish on my laptop so i normally do the second, but both work
