How to Render a 3D object without background

Hey Guys,

I Have a question about rendering a 3D object in Maya.

For Example I have a created a 3D text in Maya.
How do I render the 3D text without the black background in Maya so I can import the PNG/JPEG sequence into After Effects.

The problem I now have is that when I import the PNG/JPEG sequence into After Effects I get this black background. I don't want that background I only want the 3D object.

I can select the object to be in screen mode or whatever so you don't see the black background but my 3D text also becomes visible to the layers behind it.

Is there a way to solve this?
