Hi guys,

I'm looking to recreate an effect similar to the one in this video:

What would the best way of going about this be? Right now I'm thinking of using masks (so I can sub in different clips) but I'm uncertain of how get each mask to apply to two separate clips simultaneously without copying the masks to the clips themselves. Would the track matte function be useful in this instance?

Also, I'd ideally I'd like to be able to create a Dynamic Link between AE and PP so I can pull clips from my source/sync with audio using PP (Both of which I find it to be difficult in AE).

Thanks a lot,

There are quite a lot of effects on that video, but are you looking to do something like this:
