I have a little problem with keying. I don't know how to do this :

1) I record a first video with a speedometer in it. The background of this video is moving and not homogeneous.

2) I inlay the speedometer in a second video, but of course I get rid of its background.

Example :

A picture of the speedometer (3 digits)

I'd like to put it in another video, like this (this is a montage) ; look at the bottom-right hand corner :
Picture 2

Also, is there any way I could hide automatically the first zero so that it displays " 96 " instead of " 096 " (but it still displays 115, 100 etc.) like in Picture 2?

Thanks in advance for the help.

As Mylenium mentioned in another place you posted this question, your post is a little confusing.
Are you asking if you can mask a shot to put a piece of it in another shot? If so, the answer is yes. Even if the item moves you can rotoscope it.
