So here I exposes a fact that I do not know how in AE.
I put the images of the effect (in draft mode), Made in Photoshop.
The idea is to have done in lively, In After Effects.

I filmed shots of different characters on white background, As they.
I also have a background, Simple.

The idea is to reach to clip the characters (roughly, Make the background transparent white), But leaving a blank space around their silhouette, I would like to end surrounded by a black outline.

That it would end up (knowing that everything is animated, So the "contours" of masks by changing the actions of characters. I said that I do not have to draw the image masks PAR picture, Because I have a bunch of rushes to "treat" this way :

I think your best bet may be to try and pull a luma key or extract, then expand the matte with something like the simple choker and a negative choke. This will give you the white border.

The black outline can be done with a stroke layer style. (Layer:Layer Styles:Stroke)

Adobe CS3, Apple FCS2
