I'm trying to figure out how to steal an object out of a motion video and put it into a different one. The camera in the original video moves and I've found the frame I want to steal the object out of and I've masked it. I want it to stay in that position when I apply it to the new video which is a static shot. I can't seem to figure out how to get this still image into my new motion video.
As you wrote just a few days ago, you're brand-new to AE. You should know that this is NOT the kind of application where you just pick up a couple of tricks to use in your next video. You have to know the basics, and you DON'T.
If you want even more, there are tutorials here on the COW, on the Adobe web site... lots of places. If you want a more structured, topic-by-topic approach, I recommend the AE training from Total Training -- google 'em.
