Not sure if this is in the right spot for this question but here it goes: Im working shot on a on a project shot on a 5d MARK ll where I will convert all the footage to black and white and chroma key (not sure if this is the right term) all of the red object in the footage to show (sort of like the movie Pleasantville). Then I plan to animate all of the objects, which are words that are red in the background, to shake and move a little. Im editing the footage in FCP then plan to do the animations (movement of the red word) in aftereffects. All of the scenes will be black and white with the red highlight effects and the only ONE scene will show the shaking animation efects. My question is how to start my workflow? Should i just edit the piece first in FCP then do all of the effects in AE (such as converting the footage to black and white and chroma key the red colors) OR just edit AND chroma key the the red colors from the footage first in FCP then just do the animation part (the movement and shake of the words in the background) in AE? How should this be approached? I used AE before but never to this compacity. thanks for the help.

[This sounds like a combination of motion tracking and animationg position, possibly with rotoscoping thrown in as well.

Thanks for the quick follow up! I plan to make the words in the background vibrate, sort of like the vibration that comes off a speaker . Im thinking of using the wiggler effect on the words only (not on the entire shot) but not sure if this is my best bet.
