Is there a way to save bloom and lens flare effects to the alpha channel?

You can use the Flare2Alpha Image Filter, but usually you'd be better off adding these kinds of things in post, since you are anyway taking it to post (or else you wouldn't need the alpha channels).

Thanks for the replies!
I will try out the flare2alpha plug-in first, if I can't get it to respond nicely then yeah, post is the way to go.
