I'm a bit rusty with AFX. I'm trying to do a quick roto or sky mask for some handheld footage - swat the sky out for some storm clouds. The sky's quite bright, cloudy with small amounts of definition. I'm trying to cut out a building with a complex shape. Any quick way of masking the sky without a Frame By frame solution?
I've tried Mocha but its just far to shakey to track.

Yup. Now we wait. Here's another hurdle I bet you'll have to overcome: if there are dark objects against this sky that needs replacement, you may also have the issue of light wrap to contend with.
You can roto your little heart out and get every stinkin' edge absolutely dead-solid perfect, but you'll still have to deal with the unnaturally-bright edges of dark objects against the darker replacement sky.
