I am looking for tips on how to create this "special effect". I have shot my actor against a green screen...he is moving within my frame on the green as if he is caught in a tornado. In another comp I have created a tornado as seen from the inside of a house (this is for a Wizard of Oz theater production). I want to key out the green screen and put my actor over the swirling winds and make him smaller and fly him in and around the screen. Is there an already existing tutorial to do this out there? I'm at a loss on how to merge the two comps. This would probably be easier if my actor was frozen in a frame, but that would look cheesy and I would love to have him flailing his arms around!

Thank you for your help.

You can drag one comp into another comp from the project panel like any other footage asset.

You could also cut and paste, merging all the elements from one comp into another.
