AE - How would you mask/rotoscope this video?

Hi there Creatives!

For a movie I'm creating a video which includes video and digital images. Two hands are browsing through a book. I want to mask a hand before the images in de video. The only way I know is to mask this. It takes a lot of time, because the hands are moving, and I have to place a lot of keyframes.

How would you mask this?
I tried rotoscoping but It was difficult for me. Pictures below.





Thank you for your help!

I think you would find AE's Rotobrush very valuable. But don't try to use Rotobrush intuitively! You must take training in its use! I would google "After Effects Rotobrush Resources". Look for the links that take you to the Adobe Web site.
