Max van MeerAE CC: replace moving BW image with footage

Hello,

I have a moving, animated black and white alpha layer of a small plane (the plane is white, the background is black), and I'd like to replace it with footage (an image) so that the footage is moving like the white plane did.

What's the fastest way to do this?

Thanks a lot!
max

Create a new comp and drag both the alpha matte and the footage into the comp. Place the alpha layer on the top of the layer stack. Change the footage layer's track matte(if the track mattes pulldown isn't visible, press F4) to alpha matte and it will show in the white area's of the alpha layer.
