I'm a beginner with After Effects and I've had trouble finding a tutorial on something I'm trying to do. I filmed someone with green screen and I want to add that person into a TV show clip. For instance if I want them to be sitting in a chair in the background I would need the TV character to walk in front of them. Can someone help me out with either what it is I need to look for specifically or a good tutorial on this? Any help is appreciated.
AE is both deep and broad, and it's very hard to jump right in without taking a little time to learn fundamental concepts first. You've got to practice your scales and arpeggios before you can play Mozart, and you've got to walk before you can run.

Great, thanks! This info will be very helpful to get me familiar with AE. I have experience with green screen and keying in Final Cut so I was able to do this in AE, however, what I'm having trouble with is once I overlay the keyed person on the TV clip I'm using, I want to put the keyed person in the background and have the TV character walk in front of him. Is this done with the pen tool? Do you know of a good tutorial to show how this effect is done? Once again, your help is appreciated!
