#2011 Export frame as PNG with transparent background

Hello, A lot of the SWL files I'm working with use a frame background (set from a SetBackgroundColor tag). I wish to export those frames as PNG files, with a transparent background, regardless of the SetBackgroundColor tag. Is it possible to force a transparent background ? Or else, remove the SetBackgroundColor tag through the CLI ? I saw with the -remove option that I could remove by ID, but I cannot tell in advance the tag's position in the file. I can fix the background manually (either with JPEXS in the GUI by removing the SetBackgroundColor tag by hand, or by post-processing the image to detect the background), but I need a quicker way to batch process a lot of SWF files. Any help would be appreciated.
