i was thinking and:

I found this background ...

http://hem.bredband.net/notum/old_paper.jpg

I think I will simplify the issue of photomontage and only use the entire edge with white photos like Polaroid photos into this background in 3D effects and old film ...

can u specify me any tutorial for this background convert into 3D background?

any other for the photos into this 3D fly into each one focusing bacground an then flying to the other using motion 3d path for camera?

i continue needing help for the cat video

What programs are you using? The cat's mouth is pretty basic animation. An unchanging top layer of teeth with a lower layer that you animate to form the words. How you go about creating it will vary depending on the program you're using.

im using after effects cs4

thx for answering, i have created the pohotmontage basic, only i need to convert the up background in 3d background like the video i posted before.

for photomontage im using this tutorial

http://library.creativecow.net/articles/birnholz_rob/red_giant_3d_montage.p...

is the best, but the only part i miss is the 3d background, im looking for old photoalbum paper, the ones of the first post is nice but i dont know how to convert it into 3d motion acording with the photomontage, any idea or tutorial?

with the cat u recomend me to cut one frame with top layer of teeth and other with down layer and animate downlayer?

is it easy with after fx?

thx

There are a few ways to make your background layer work in 3d.
1: Use Trapcode's Horizon plugin, using the the paper texture layer for the horizon
2: Make it a large 3d layer at the bottom of the layer stack
3: Use it as a 2d layer and (since the camera move is pretty simple) keyframe its movement so it looks good.

As far as animating the mouth, it should be very easy in AE. It will just take some time.

Also, as you're doing animation like this, you might consider using the puppet tool in After Effects for some of your animation.
