    Yes. You should save with an alpha (straight), open the file in photoshop, load the alpha channel, and then make a new layer from the selection, which will make a layer with your artwork and transparent background.

    Not sure why you would ever have a gray background though. Did you change the background color? Or do you have some kind of atmospheric effect enabled? If you have an atmospheric effect enabled, you'll want to use an object buffer to create your alpha (or make a separate render with the atmosphere turned off and use that alpha for your masking instead).
