Use render layers. It can be set up in the scene tab. You need KeyShot Pro for this. Otherwise: copy your geometry and render out alphas using the flat material.
KeyShot 4 manual
User interface > Project window > Scene tab

Thank you so much for your help Dries. The render layers really worked. Since iam new to keyshot not experienced, by the way you mentioned in the second method about "render out alphas using the flat material". Can you throw some light on that, what kind of material should i apply to get the renders i just posted. In rhino i normally use white reflective material to render alpha out

You can apply a Flat material to objects (can be selected in Type drop-down list in Material tab). This is a solid color, non-shaded material. The idea is to make all objects in your scene black (RGB 0,0,0) and only make the object of interest white (RGB 255,255,255). You can use this image as an opacity mask in Photoshop etc.

Attached is a quick example that you can play with. ;)
