I've search numerous tutorials online and read through a lot of the articles on this site but something is just not clicking with me. I need help.

This is what I have.

A desert scene of a woman sitting, the camera tilts down from the sky to reveal her and she is sitting next to a TV in which we applied tracking points and green screen to.

I need to put another video clip on the TV screen and follow with the tilt down as it is revealed. I believe this involves using masks but I just can't figure it out. Could someone please explain this seemingly simple technique?

Thank you!!

I forgot to mention also that I need to probably use a mask because the green screen wasn't light great so when I apply a key to it, it starts to key out other parts of the footage.

For screen replacement, I recommend using mocha.
