Magic Lasso Tool For Videos
on Aug 10, 2015 at 8:24:08 am

Greetings all
This is my first Post here at the forums
I would like to know if it's possible to cut a moving image from a video and then place it onto a different background

Example: Say i have a video of me running, and i wanted to make the video look like i'm running along side Wolverine in the latest X-Men movie, how would i be able to do this ?

You certainly like jumping in at the deep end! - OK, I'd be looking at ways I could Blue or Green Screen myself; use Vegas Chroma Keying and superimpose that on top of the Wolverine Media.

So, much research for you: Green or Blue Screen - Chroma Keying; Lighting.

We do have Masking, but you may not think that that is good enough for you?

As Graham pointed out, using Chroma Key against a Green Screen is the easiest way to do this. You either need a shot of Wolverine running against green screen or yourself running against a green screen but one of you needs to be in front of a green screen so that the green background can be keyed out. It sounds like you have neither of these.

Vegas Pro has masking but it's a static mask that you would have to move frame by frame yourself. It's completely doable but very tedious. That may be your only option at this point though. What you would do is use the Mask tool in Pan/Crop to draw a mask around Wolverine. Then move a frame forward and adjust the mask to match his movements. Repeat this for all of the frames that you want him running alongside of you. Then place that event on a track above yours and use Task Motion to position him in place.

Adobe After Effects has a rotoscoping tool that does this automatically but Vegas Pro does not. :(
