Hi folks
about 3 years ago i had a similar problem to solve and i'm hoping someone can jog
my faded memory and perhaps tell me the stacking and keying order for creating a
layered key as seen on my mac home page

http://homepage.mac.com/velocite/PhotoAlbum52.html

all help is appreciated

cheers
john

I think it would be base layer is your footage, the wipe matte sits on top of that, or rather it is what you'd put in the mask track of each of the video sources with one of them inverted. The matte for the sword (I assume the sword itself doesn't have a key signal?) on top of that (or dump the video tracks into a container and put the sword matte into container's mask track) the sparks on top of that and the sword itself sitting on top of everything?

Just to add to what Editz said, use the "make alpha key" on the wipe matte footage.

By the wya Editz, nice name...check out my e-mail address......hehehehe

Whoops. Forgot about make alpha. Interesting they'd allow that for an email addy, but then again why not? I'd update my profile here but Creative Cow's no longer allowing screen names shorter than 6 characters and I'm not going to give mine up yet.
