Ok so i'm new to After effects but have been watching a lot of tutorials and gaining a bit of experience, however I've hit a brick wall in terms of this.
I'm a UI designer and have recently started to animate my screens to show the developers, but I want to finish these off by placing the animated screens onto an image of a mobile phone / tablet. The images I have are in perspective so not front facing, and I've searched numerous terms to find out how to do this, and have come across 'Corner Pin' however every tutorial or information I find is referring to placing a Video onto a video and tracking the motion, where as I want to place a Video (Animated Screens) onto a still image (Mobile phone) which is angled. I did try positioning the video manually, changing it into a 3D layer and tweaking the values but this proved very difficult. I'm presuming there is a simple method to do this?
Any suggestions or help would greatly be appreciated.

Hi Roland, You'be got me wondering: why would you need to remove the perspective?
My basic workflow would be to use the standard corner pin on the precomped video, drag the corners to the corners of the still phone, and set blend mode to screen.
[Frank Feijen]"Hi Roland, You'be got me wondering: why would you need to remove the perspective?"
Cos his insert layer/image is already with perspective and it this perspective is different from the background (mobile phone). Without first removing the inherent perspective and then re-introducing the correct perspective, the resultant composite will likely look strange - which the user has also shared.
