Im still wondering if any one has any idea how i can do this, i already called newtek but they took forever so i hung up. I am using final cut express to make a lower third that moves (like cool graphics) into a .mov file. I've tried everything as far as overlays go, but when i put it in the tricaster studio it won't work. If i use ddr it will just fade to the video. I've even rendered it overlay in the edit media section in the tricaster but still nothing. This would really help me if anyone could shed some light. Thanks again

There are several other threads here on this topic - suggest you do a quick search for Quicktime.

I did the search but did not find anything regarding my problem. I found alot for animations and still text but i am using video revealers. and i am wanting to overlay them to the live feed i am streaming out.

Ok.here's what im doing exactly i have a revealer movie that i made with final cut express. I went to modify and made it overlay exported it using the quicktime movie not the quicktime conversion. When i put it in the tricaster it came up with this error message " the movie file cannot be found without this file. the movie cannot play properly. I looked in final cut express to make the movie revealer into an anim or png like it said in the link you forwarded but didn't see it. The person you helped apparently got it so that gives me hope. i just don't know why im still stuck. thanks again for the help.

I don't use FCP or FCE, but that may well be the problem ("movie" versus "conversion") - please see this blog post, among others:
