Hi,

I have a couple of shots that have a large TV in the background. There is an image already on there (non-greenscreen) that i need to replace with new video. For one of the shots there is no interference. But another shot has the actors face about halfway in front of it (moving very little) I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for matching the depth of field and rotoscoping masks around the talents face. Any help would be great!

DOF and rotoscoping are done by bruteforce. You'll have to eyeball your way through it. For the rotoscoping bit, start on the frame where the actor is at maximum view over the TV.

...or you invest in AE 10 and use the brand-new Rotobrush feature. It sounds custom-made for your situation.

I haven't checked, but there's probably an AE 10 tryout version available.

Not yet Dave. The trial version will lag the full version and CS5 hasn't shipped yet. But withoutmuch movement it shouldn't be too difficult.

Cheers
