How to convert MOV to sequence TIFF???

How to convert MOV to sequence TIFF???
Dear experts!

I have a mov video file. I need to convert it to sequence .TIFF .Could you please recommended me program? Also I need t preserve transparent or to be able to set for example that black color will be transparent colour in .TIFF files.

I have specific need for exactly this conversion, please do not ask me why I need this. Only change that will be useful also is – to start conversation not from MOV but from AVi file.

In fact, I manage to do this, but with 3 programs and many manual operations. And final result is like – look picture.Where the two ?mark is moved it leave after it black colour (not transperant). I need place where sign is not present to be transperant as I'll mix this picture later over other.

Also I find a way with CS5 but it make empty black files - why ? I do it via File - Export - Render Video. I need my TIFF to be 24 bits + 8 bits Alpha channel.

I haven<t tested this, but you may want to give it a try: AVCHD Converter
Extract Soundtracks and Images from Movies
 Save audio streams as audio files, save single frames as images.
yeah, I don't think that option above will work... ...sounds like you need something a bit more high end.  What software do you have access to and what operating system?

Do you have access to OS X and Apple Motion?
I don't know of any apps which will automatically create TIFFs with transparency,  sounds like you need a script to pull the frames from an app (imovie and automator?) then automate conversion of TIFFs to 24-bit 8 channel (photoshop script?)

10x. I found solution, the problem was with missing of alfa channels in my video file. And Adobe Premiere with After effect can do this - but thank you - I'll check and your offer.

To roylong - i have only Windows access.
