    Image imposing in video clip

    Can anyone tell me if there is a way or a program that will let me do the following:

    1. I would like to take a person and superimpose them into a film clip that they were not actually in.

    Hi Myowntyme

    Very simple. Just film the person on a green screen background and then you can add the video to the existing footage and simply key out the green content. Any decent editing program has a Chromakey facility. I personally use the Sony Vegas range but others will have it too.

    There is lots of information on the internet, search for 'Green Screen', 'Blue Screen', and 'Chroma Key' or 'Chromakey', Premiere Elements also has great keying effects.

    Are you talking about a still image or a video of a person?

    Actually both, first preference a video, second a still image

    video would require green screen and chroma key work, or possibly a very expensive plug in for something. I don't know of anything that will do it automatically without recording the subject in front of the green screen.

    A still image is another story. You can remove the background with Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, leaving a transparent background and put that in a movie editor, like Premiere Elements, easily.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but could you not create a mask around the person utilizing keyframes in order for the mask to follow the movement (it won't be as perfect as chromakey, but if the background is not a solid color....), then overlay that on top of the new background that is wanted?

    I created a video at one point where I actually zoomed the image, then set up a mask for a face in that image, then superimposed that on top of another video at about 30% opacity. In this manner, I had a somewhat hazy (due to the zooming losing resolution) floating head on the other video, which was exactly the effect I was looking for in this case. This was with Premeire Elements.

    Hi AngelKnight

    Quite correct actually but a bit more work. However if the subject is no longer available to say, re-shoot on a green screen, then masking will also work. I personally use FXHome Visual Studio but a lot of software packs will do masking including most NLE's
