Jack HynesIsolating foreground to use as a video transition

I have three Glidetrack shots which I plan to cut together to show a transition down through a rainforest to a burrow. The shots are: down through forest, down past lizard on leaf, and down through earth to burrow. I would like to isolate the foreground of the middle shot (lizard on leaf) and play it over the top of the transition between the other two shots. I've experimented with moving sky replacement, is this the sort of process I would need to use?

I hope this makes sense, I've included the lizard on leaf shot.

I can't see your video due to network restrictions where I work, but from your description of what you want, I would say that it's just a task of rotoscoping. Much info and tips on rotoscoping here: [link]

Thanks Michael, I shall have a go at that. Think I've got a lazy Monday coming up, so I'll try then.

Thanks for the advice Michael, if you are interested in the final result (which certainly isn't perfect, but long rotoscoping is extremely resource intensive!!). This is the link



to the final film, the rotoscoping starts at 01:58.

Thanks again!
